Perry Clark takes pride in her legal work for a needy nonprofit. When disaster strikes, leaving her unemployed and homeless, her sister Campbell comes to the rescue with a job offer. Perry accepts reluctantly—working for corporate clients is only temporary, right? But after Campbell assigns Grace, Perry’s childhood crush, as her mentor, Perry’s heart might be making longer-term plans.
Grace Maldonado remembers Perry Clark as her best friend’s sometimes annoying, often rebellious, little sister, so she isn’t prepared when she discovers Perry is now brilliant and gorgeous—though still bullheaded—and challenges her at every turn. When she isn’t arguing with Perry, Grace is fighting a growing attraction she can’t seem to ignore. Because not only is it wrong to fall in love with your best friend’s sister, Perry has no intention of sticking around.
Light reading? Maybe, but all 3 books in this series are fun and great in that they show ‘ride or die’ friendship among 3 very intelligent, warm and fun characters. The witty dialogue, alone, makes them all ‘must reads’ for me. The legal side is interesting, but not so much that it gets bogged down, in fact, therein lies the conflict, in one way. I’d recommend all three in the correct order to understand the full experience. Another win from Ms. Taite and, of course BSB!
Good build up
This book checks all the boxes, but I still wasn’t really able to connect. The two main characters have some really difficult feats to overcome. There is a lot of built up and once they finally get together, the story ends too quickly for my tastes. They overcome their challenges, but it all seems too superficial and a little too easy.
