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.

He always looks at you like he wants to toss you in the jury box and have his wicked way with you. He also keeps moving closer to talk to you. I thought he was going to sit on your lap today and you obviously liked it.”
Yeah, well, he smells good. I need to get out more. I'm sniffing the prosecutors.”

Okay, that was friggin fantastic- the perfect book when you need a pick me up. Yes, it was a romance and yes, there was some smokin' hott sex-both of which I love BTW- but it was also funny as hell with an abundance of fab characters, minimal angst but a ton of drama with a little bit of mystery thrown in there. It was like an R rated version of Ally McBeal mixed in with The Nanny and Friends. OH! And a huge shout-out to all my fellow Pennsylvanians <3

Christ on a cracker! I had been looking at this man across a courtroom for months, and I had even sat across a table from him when negotiating a deal, but I had never been this close to him before. Wow. I realized that I was just staring at him stupidly and I managed to pull myself together. I really had to get laid soon.

Once upon a time, two lawyers fell in love across a courtroom...
Braden Pierce is an Assistant District Attorney and Gabrielle Ginsberg is a Public Defender, as such, they often find themselves in court together arguing cases against each other. Gabrielle has always been attracted to the sexy as sin asst. DA, but it is a well known fact that Braden doesn't do relationships.

Everybody knew that he was a big time player. I didn't want a one night stand and I didn't want to share, so it seemed like Mr. Pierce was off-limits. Now, if someone could just explain that to inner-Gabrielle. And my vagina.

He's only interested in 'hooking up' with women and moving on, there is no way she can have a one nighter with a guy she has to face in court almost every day. Besides, he's never shown any kind of interest in her-that she can tell. Her best friend Jessica however, sees things a little differently and has no problem setting Gabrielle straight.

Thanks to you planting your dubious theories in my head, I've gone from just lusting for him to pining for him too. I'm like Pepe Le Pew on Acid every time he gets near me now.

When they run into each other for the first time outside of court, Braden sees a side of Gabrielle he never knew existed and he has no problem letting her know he's very interested. But she stays true to her 'no one nighter' rule, so they begin negotiations. They agree to four dates, then they'll see where they go from there. Neither one of them expected they would get along so well. The chemistry is there, they knew that, but they also have a lot in common and just enjoy being together.

Wait, am I your girlfriend?”
Do you want to be my girlfriend?”
Well, yeah.”
Then your my girlfriend. And I know that you deserve better than me too, but I don't care, because I'm selfish and I want you.”

But falling in love proves to be way more complicated than they thought- cue the jealous and slightly obsessed ex's, nutty outspoken family members, creepy politicians, and a mysterious letter writer hell bent on keeping them apart. Can they weed through all the craziness surrounding them and stay together?

Some of my favorite parts of this book were the court scenes, some of those cases were beyond hilarious. And Gabrielle roping her friends into some pretty funny Scooby stunts to weed out the letter writer was just too much. The sex scenes were AhMazing, steamy and crazy hott with a wall scene I'll never forget... the ending wasn't exactly a cliffhanger but it did leave you with enough questions to really want to get your hands on the next book. I have definitely found a new must-read author in NM Silber, I cannot wait for more.

Jessica, he's so sexy! He's got such a great sense of humor and he's 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.”

*****5- Scooby Gang- Stars*****
~this review contains spoilers from book 1~

He asked me to hook up with him and when I demanded dinner first he challenged me to a round of Beer Sex Trivia and then we negotiated a settlement that included pre-sex dating.”
So it wasn't the Notebook....”

They're back! I really can't get enough of these people-hilarious and sexy as hell-Love It! With so many fantastically wonderful characters, the fun never ends and boy do they get themselves into some serious giggle inducing situations. Who knew lawyers could be such a riot?

One month! Jesus, Braden, you went down like the fucking Titanic, man! Dating for four weeks and you can't make it two whole days without her.”
“Six weeks. I don't dick around when I know what I want, and I want to be with her.”

Book 2 picks up right where Book 1 leaves off- Braden and Gabrielle still have no idea who the mysterious letter writer/stalker is and they refuse to let it come between them. So, they proceed with life normally-as a newly engaged couple, although Braden doesn't want to clue their parents onto that fact until he proposes properly and gets her a ring. But that doesn't mean the situation goes forgotten. Braden turns on his protective mode making sure she's never alone, and Gabrielle has learned to not keep anything from Braden, no matter how small the details.

Braden let you out on your own?”
“I have my attack dog.” I looked down at my teeny tiny Chihuahua who I was sure would yip his ass off for me if I were in danger. The fact that nobody might care was another issue.

With so little details to go on though, there's not much the police can do. So in true Gabrielle fashion, she convinces Braden and their friends to take matters into their own hands and do a little investigating of their own.

I think it's a date and time. This Friday at ten thirty and I think we should go check it out!”
What do you mean 'we'? Who do we look like? The Scooby Doo Gang?” Adam asked..
Oh, trust me man!” Mark broke in, “You haven't lived until you've gone with Gabrielle on one of her little adventures. What should we dress up as this time?”

And if all of that isn't enough, they still have the normal issues most couples have. Braden worries about some of the clients Gabrielle has to deal with on a daily basis but she is a Criminal Defense Attorney- dealing with criminals is what she does. She doesn't want to let him try to rule her career and what she does with it but she doesn't want to keep fighting about it either, so they will have to come up with a compromise. One thing they really don't have to worry about is compatibility or their sex life. They belong together, nothing or no one will change that, and their chemistry is as hott as ever.

Four hours. That's what? Two hundred and forty minutes. Just to let you know, at two hundred and forty-one I'm going to need those panties off, baby.”
I'll take them off before I leave. It'll save us a few seconds. I don't think we have to go all the way to the bedroom either.”
Hell, no. I'm going to nail you right there inside the front door.”
I'm good with that.”
Sounds like we have a plan. Good working with you, counselor.”

Once again, some of my favorite parts were the courtroom scenes- seriously, where the hell do they get these people?! Oddly enough, I think some of them live near me Lol. The sex scenes are hotter than ever, one in particular.... let's just say, the next time I get a jury summons- I know exactly what I will be thinking about. Gabrielle has me in stitches more often than not. She is just so awkward, clumsy, and off the wall cooky, you can't help but laugh at her- Braden will definitely have his hands full with that one, but something tell me he will love every minute of it. My only regret is not being able to get into Braden's head as the books are told entirely from Gabrielle's POV. I would really have loved to hear his thoughts on some of her antics. Each and every one of these characters pulls me in, all unique in their own way but equally interesting and funny as hell. I cannot wait to see where this series goes from here, the setup for Adam & Lilly's story has me in giddy anticipation- I never want to say good bye to these people, EVER! NM Silber has solidly landed on my 'must read' list and I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a good laugh and some smokin' hott steam.

You tell him stuff about our sex life?”
“Not details. Just general stuff.”
“What kind of general stuff?”
“I don't know. Like for example, if he said, 'Hey, Braden you're looking really cheerful, you must have gotten laid last night', I might point out that I get laid most nights, but I wouldn't mention that I spanked you and you liked it.” He laughed.
Well, that's okay, I guess.”
“And I've told him that you blow my mind in bed but I haven't mentioned that you've also blown it in the jury room.”

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.
