Review:

After reading the second book in this series and being disappointed I didn't have high expectations for Legal Briefs. The only reason I went on to read it was because I remembered liking the first book so much, and I was hoping the second book was just not my thing and not indicative of what this book would be like. Thankfully this book was much better than the second one. It was not just sex.

Adam and Lily were really cute together. They have known each other forever, but have had a love/hate relationship. Now it is getting to be more love than hate, but Lily loves to bring up the horrible things Adam did to her when she was younger. It was fun and silly and just nice reading their story. It took a little bit, but once Adam knew he was ready to be a one woman man he asked Lily out on a real date. The dates were fun, no dinner and a movie here. I did enjoy it.

Of course there are some high jinks in there. Lily's weird new neighbor is at her book signing event and seems to die right in front of her. Before that though he tells her some things that might help in a case, so he inadvertently involves her in everything that is going on. Someone tries to get her, so she has to start working and living with Adam. Oh darn. It was like a Scooby Doo episode. It was a bit much at times that no one, especially Lily, could figure out the not cryptic things the dying guy told her. I was just like banging my head against the table like are you supposed to be incredibly stupid? I didn't like that, but everything else, all the crazy plans, I just went along with. The end, who was involved, is again ridiculous but it is supposed to be that way. I just wish Lily wouldn't have been so dense. What she thinks the things mean never occurred to me and when she said what she thought the guy meant I was just like what? Really? That is what you thought he was saying? Okay...Overall a good read though. I would give the next book a try when it comes out.

Rating: 3.5/5
