Book Review: Legal Ease by Lori Ryan

Legal EaseFrom NY Times and USA Today bestselling author, Lori Ryan

This steamy contemporary romance has characters you’ll fall in love with and a twist you’ll never see coming. Dive on in to Book One of the Sutton Capital Series and fall in love!

Kelly Bradley is convinced she doesn’t need to worry about falling in love when she comes up with her plan to marry Jack Sutton. She’s dated so many great guys over the years, but hasn’t fallen in love once. Not with any of them. It just isn’t in the cards for her. So, when she approaches powerful, sexy Jack Sutton and proposes a temporary marriage-of-convenience, she’s not one bit concerned that her heart will be on the line.

Jack Sutton is used to having control over things, having things go his way. Things in his life aren’t supposed to spin out of control. But Kelly Bradley flips his world upside-down and has him wanting more than he’d ever thought he would have. And, just when he realizes he wants a real marriage with Kelly, Jack finds himself racing to save the woman he loves.

Before Jack and Kelly know it, not only are their hearts on the line, but Kelly’s life is, too.

Legal Ease is book one of the Sutton Capital Series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. Lori’s Sutton Capital Series is a steamy series with adult language. For a sweeter series, please see her Evers, Texas Series, beginning with Ever Hopeful.

Not entirely sure where I picked this one up from, possibly a freebie from Amazon.

This starts in the middle, with Kelly being attacked by an unknown assailant and being bundled into a car. All she can think of is Jack, and it’s at this point we find out how the two meet, and how they get to a situation where she comes to be kidnapped.

Kelly is in need of tuition fees to get her through Law School (hence the name of the book) and Luke needs a fiancee – fast – in order to protect his multi-billion dollar business from his scheming aunt. Between them, they come up with a scheme that seems to protect both of them, until the unexpected happens (they find they are attracted to each other – SURPRISE!).

Cue some sexy scenes, an Aunt constantly dropping in unexpected to catch them out (she believes the marriage is a sham), and we return partway through to where we came in in the beginning).

The resolution of the issue with the Aunt seems to happen rather quickly (10 years of hurt after being dumped is set aside the first time her son confronts her about her behaviour), and Luke’s sudden domesticity around Kelly seems a little stretched for the CEO of a multi-million dollar company, but ok, I’ll go with it.

On the whole, an ok story told in a reasonable manner.
