Talk about an embarrassing introduction. On her first day of law school, Kailyn ran – quite literally – into the actor she crushed on as a teenager, ending with him sprawled on top of her. Mortified to discover the Daxton Hughes was also a student in her class, her embarrassment over their meet-cute quickly turned into a friendship she never expected. Of course, she never saw his betrayal coming either…
Now, eight years later, Dax is in her office asking for legal advice. Despite her anger, Kailyn can’t help feeling sorry for the devastated man who just became sole guardian to his thirteen-year-old sister. But when her boss gets wind of Kailyn’s new celebrity client, there’s even more at stake than Dax’s custody issues: if she gets Dax to work at their firm, she’ll be promoted to partner.
The more time Kailyn spends with Dax and his sister, the more she starts to feel like a family, and the more she realizes the chemistry they had all those years ago is as fresh as ever. But will they be able to forgive the mistakes of the past, or will one betrayal lead to another?
*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
Kailyn and Dax meet after the most embarrassing moment of Kailyn’s life, one minute she was walking to her law class and the next minute she’s tangled up in Dax who just happens to be the actor she had a major crush on during her teens. Turns out he is also a law student. She never thought their meet-cute would turn into a friendship that would also lead to betrayal. Fast forward 8 years and Kailyn is on the verge of making partner when Dax shows up needing legal advice.
This story was a little bit more serious then I was expecting, it airs on the side of drama rather than comedy, it’s still great though and then are some light moments.
I loved Kailyn, she is a badass I’d definitely want her as my lawyer, she’s a real tough cookie but has a soft centre. She is fiercely protective of the people she cares about.
Dax was ok – I don’t want to be negative but I didn’t feel that strong of a connection with him. I enjoyed reading the chapters from his POV but yeah he was ok as a love interest, he’s pretty moody sometimes but he was great with Kailyn and they really worked well together. I loved their banter.
My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
