About this ebook

The New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled books returns with the third standalone romance in the Legal Briefs series, a collection of sexy novels about first crushes, second chances, and the final verdict of the heart.

When Brent Mason looks at Kennedy Randolph, he doesn’t see the awkward, sweet girl who grew up next door. He sees a self-assured, stunning woman…who wants to crush the most intimate—and prized—parts of his anatomy beneath the heels of her Louboutins.

When Kennedy looks at Brent, all she sees is the selfish, Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue–worthy teenager who humiliated her in high school in order to join the popular crowd. A crowd that made those years a living hell for her.

But she’s not a lovesick social outcast anymore—she’s a Washington, DC, prosecutor with a long winning streak. Brent is the opposing attorney in her next case, and Kennedy thinks it’s time to put him through a little hell of his own.

But things aren’t exactly working out the way she planned. Brent has his sights set on Kennedy, and every fiery exchange only makes him want her more—and makes her wonder if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom. In the end, they may just find themselves in love…or in contempt of court.

I love Brent! He is perfect for me. Kennedy should just step aside and let me have him. ;) Seriously, Brent is one of my top book boyfriends, and Kennedy is definitely the only girl for him. Brent has always had money, as in super rich, so it was surprising for him to become a defense attorney. To many, becoming a lawyer would be a lucrative job, but he already has more many than he could ever make working; so, he's in it because it's his calling. His money and strong work ethic aren't even his best features in my eyes. His sense of humor is what gets me. He's a comic book nerd and a total goof ball. *Swooning* Oh, and he’s hot of course. ;) Kennedy and Brent grew up together. They were two peas in a pod for years. She was there during his rehabilitation from the accident that caused the partial loss of his leg. He was there during her awkwardness, braces and glasses. As happens sometimes, other people got in the way. Years later, they find themselves on opposing sides of a case. Kennedy is a tiger. She goes after what she wants with gusto. She's been knocked down a few times in life so she's Ms. Tough-As-Nails Dragon Lady compared to his Mr. Charming Clown. This story has a good bit of action, laughs, sexiness and heart. It's a story of best friends turned enemies to lovers. And if you enjoyed the other characters, you'll be happy to know that you get regular updates on how they're all doing. The epilogue is beautiful—I loved the whole book really. Yes, I definitely recommend reading.
