Once upon a time two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom …
Gabrielle Ginsberg was a public defender with plenty of nerve and Braden Pierce was an assistant district attorney with a whole lot of swagger. Gabrielle wanted Braden and Braden wanted Gabrielle.
And Cameron wanted Gabrielle.
And Marla wanted Braden.
And Cole wanted Gabrielle.
And Mrs. Mason wanted Braden.
And an anonymous letter writer wanted to keep Gabrielle and Braden apart.
Together Gabrielle and Braden discovered many important things, like which doors at the courthouse actually locked, and that desks could be useful for more than writing. They also found out that the path of love was not always smooth, and it was sometimes trod upon by some really wacky people, like a confused fanny grabber, an eighty-two year old pothead and a gentleman who threw a wine and cheese party in his pants. Could true love overcome a lack of privacy, interference by jealous rivals and the insanity of the criminal court system?
NOTICE: This book contains explicit descriptions of sexual situations and mature language. It is intended for readers over the age of eighteen.
I was unable to put the book down. Braden and Gabrielle were a hot and “saucy” couple. The banter in and out of the court room was hilarious and the sexual tension was just there. They only part that I didn’t like was “it ended”. I wanted MORE…… This was a GREAT relaxing read and hilarious to a fault.
I so think I need to give the date rule because I am like Gabrielle, the one night thing is so not for me. A little harmless flirting can go a long way in and out of the courtroom. The best scene was the bar in my opinion when there were passing the note. The “I Love Lucy” reference was off the meter and the funny part was I so thought the same thing after it was stated of course. The investigation part was so what Lucy would have done.
Braden was a protector by nature and did not let his family status go to his head. I was so happy he was laid back and freaky by nature. Gabrielle brought him to his knees FAST….
I want to thank N.M. Silber for this book. I recommend everyone read it and spread the word. Book 2 will be even better. I can not wait for it to be released.
I quickly finished my coffee and had just started to feel semi-human again when I heard my cell phone start ringing. I froze. Jess swung around and gave me an expectant look.
"Gabrielle! Answer your phone!" she ordered, diving at my purse. She grabbed it and threw a Hail Mary pass across our kitchen that would have had NFL scouts interested. I caught it … and fumbled … but Jess was on it. She threw her body on the bag and thrust her hand in just in time to click answer and pant into the phone like an obscene caller.
"Give me that!" I grabbed it away from her. "Hello?"
"Gabrielle? Are you okay? Was that a dog?"
"Braden? No, that was Jessica. She exerted herself a bit on the way to the phone." I gave her a "what the hell is wrong with you?" look.
"I see. I think. Uh, anyway, I hope it's not too early ..."
"No. I've had my coffee and I'm not even hung-over this morning." I started straightening my pajamas like he could see me. And like it would matter that Betty Boop's ass looked crooked on my nightshirt.
"Are you usually hung-over on Saturday mornings?"
"No! I just meant that I might have gotten a hangover from last night because I don't usually drink a lot. I would have stopped after two beers and a shot but Mark pawned his shot off on me too."
"You do remember that we’re supposed to go out tonight?" he teased.
"I wasn’t drunk!"
"So you remember hooking up?"
"What?" I heard him start laughing. He was kidding. Whew.
"Where did you want to go tonight?" He still sounded amused.
"It's not fancy," I said hesitantly.
"Good. I wear a tie five days a week."
"It's not that far from my apartment and we could walk there if you didn't mind."
"Great, the weather's beautiful."
"It's Middle Eastern food. Is that okay?"
"You're very easy to get along with outside of court."
"Are you saying that I’m not easy to get along with in court?"
"You can be tough sometimes."
"So can you."
"You’re being very easy right now though."
"Maybe I’m hoping you’ll be easy later." He laughed and I felt myself start to sweat. "I’m teasing you. I said that I would leave everything up to you and I’m fine with all of your suggestions. It just so happens that I like casual, I like walking and I like Middle Eastern food."
"Okay, well if you like walking we could go for a walk after we ate."
"Sure. Did you have somewhere in particular you wanted to go?"
"Yeah, it's close by though. Either you'll appreciate it as much as I do or you'll think I'm kind of nuts but it would probably be better that you knew that going in."
"What time should I pick you up?" he asked, sounding very amused now.
"How about six o'clock? I live in the Chatham. It's just off of Walnut ..."
"I know exactly where it is. I live two blocks away from you."
"Well, that would make a booty call very easy. Oh shit. I said
that out loud too didn't I?" I heard him laugh really hard. Good, hopefully he thought I was joking.
"I also like you." I wanted to throw down my phone, jog the two blocks and throw myself into his arms. "Yeah, well I like you too even if you do put my clients in jail. See you later Mr. Prosecutor."
"See you later Ms. Saucy Mouth."
We hung up and I collapsed onto the sofa and starting kicking my legs and making a noise so high-pitched that it probably attracted every canine on the block and was picked up by sonar in the Atlantic. Jess, who had tactfully left me alone, came running back in.
"Jesus, Gabrielle! Are you having a seizure?!"
"Please please please can I keep him mom? I promise I'll take care of him! Oh baby, I’ll take care of him!"
"Good lord. She's finally gone around the bend. Can I have your Manolos when they come to take you away?"
"Jessica, he's so sexy! He’s got such a great sense of humor and he was totally
comfortable with me choosing everything. He even said something kinda sorta romantic. I've heard that such men existed but I've never seen one up close."
"Well, we need to make sure we don't frighten him off. We'll approach him very slowly and speak in quiet gentle tones. Put on some nice perfume and let him sniff you."
"God, I hope he doesn't think I'm nuts after tonight."
"Oh don't worry honey. I'm sure that he already knows that you're nuts."
Once upon a time ... N.M. Silber was a criminal defense attorney who got up each morning, donned her power suit and sensible pumps, downed a gallon of coffee and set out to "fight the good fight" while trying to not go insane. Having a dark sense of humor and a sarcastic wit helped -- a lot. Another thing that helped was reading. As escapism was the goal, she liked to read romance novels, especially really funny ones and really sexy ones. Then one day something beautiful happened -- she read one that was both funny and sexy at the same time. She hung up her power suit, put away her sensible pumps and moved her coffee mug to her computer. Now she writes funny and smutty romance novels herself and she lives happily ever after.
