Review ❤️ Illegally Yours by Kate Meader

January 22, 2019

illegally yours kate meader

Rule #1: Never fall for your client.
Rule #2: Never fall for your client’s fiercely protective, smoking hot sister-in-law.

I’m the kind of guy who believes that everyone deserves the best legal representation money can buy—which just so happens to be me, Lucas Wright. Give me your henpecked, your cuckolded, your irreconcilable differences yearning to break free! And if you’re the bad guy in your marriage, that’s cool too. Your green is as good as anyone’s.

Tell that to Trinity Jones. It’s my job to destroy her sister—the soon-to-be ex-wife of my a-hole of a client—and Trinity’s “big sis” instincts are dialed up to the max. I admire that. I admire her. But she won’t stop me from representing my client to the best of my ability.

Not even if my chemistry with Trinity is undeniable. Not even if we can’t keep our hands off each other. Not even if she injects life into a heart assumed to be long dead.
 
Because when faced with a choice between love and duty, the job will always win—or at least that’s what I thought before I met Trinity . . . and suddenly conflict of interest never felt so right.

This is just a fun and entertaining read. I went in a bit nervous as I never read anything by this author before. I didn’t realize this is book 2 of the series but I didn’t feel lost at all. In fact, I’m anxious to go back to the first book and eagerly awaiting the next book.

When Lucas and Trinity meet at the bar where she works, they share this immediate connection. Trinity is determined to stay away from him. He is fighting her wishes. He knows a good thing when he sees it and the feisty whiskey sommelier is just that. Speaking of interesting career choices, I love that the author put her in a white male dominating field. I never read a romance with a whiskey sommelier.

Lucas tries to find ways to get close to her but it becomes even more difficult when he discovers that she is the sister of the woman his client is divorcing. I’m glad this is discovered immediately and Lucas goes about resolving it in a professional manner. There is still conflict but it handled quickly.

The real meat of the story is not from their conflict but their own personal lives. They both have a lot of baggage that they carry and it is slowly revealed throughout the course of the book. Lucas struggles with his life in Chicago as a big part of him is left behind in London. I loved how Lucas is just more than this hot shot attorney who takes everything in a joking manner. He is vulnerable. He grew up in a bad situation and made something out of himself.

I liked Trinity overall but there is a point where her bad ass demeanor is a turn off. She wants to save everyone but herself. She doesn’t even realize she is in pain until Lucas has to call her out on it and even then she lashes out as I’m the strong female. Eventually these two get their lives together and try to work on their relationship as well.

The secondary characters are a bonus in this story. They show up at the right time and have their own issues to deal with but don’t take away from the main story. As mentioned earlier, I look forward to the next book.
