"Lawfully Yours," by Stacy Hoff
The prestigious Connecticut law firm of Grovas & Cleval has always been rife with office drama and crazy clients. But an office affair between a young associate and a powerful partner—her boss—might be the biggest scandal of all.
Quirky, quiet Sue Linkovitch is Jordan Grant’s newest hire. Barely out of law school and hired on a fluke, she has no idea what she’s gotten herself into. Unfortunately, Jordan isn’t sympathetic to her professional “growing pains.” In fact, he’s downright frosty. The only time he thaws is when he’s around his five-year-old daughter. So why is she so attracted to him?
Jordan Grant sees Sue as bright, bookish, and a terrible temptation. Yet he knows not to get involved with a woman again—he learned this from his divorce. And if that hard-knock lesson wasn’t enough, he’s been falsely accused of sexual harassment in the past. If a colleague even thinks he’s interested, it will be the death of his career—and hers.
Welcome to another Off Theme, Off Schedule Review, my lovelies! This week’s found me traipsing into the Land of the Law and, whew, what a ride it was! Lawfully Yours by Stacy Hoff—and released by Soul Mate Publishing—was a delightful and humorous contemporary workplace romance. It heralded a quirky and hilarious leading lady, and a dashing and brilliant hero. And to say it’s obvious Ms. Hoff has some serious insider knowledge on the law would be an understatement. The world she weaves is one chocked full of tidbits and details that make it positively come alive.
This is the second book I’ve read and reviewed for this author, and just like her New Adult Contemporary Romance Mad for You in Madrid, the story grabbed my attention from page one and kept me entranced and grinning all the way to the end. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Ms. Hoff is a master of the tropes. Her plot lines and characters stay tried and true to expectations, yet veer just enough off course to leave you wondering what’ll happen next. It’s the perfect combination of comfortable and daring.
I would recommend this book to any reader who loves the romance genre, especially a well-crafted sampling laced with humor and delight.
