Then Came You (Laws of Attraction #3) by Kate Meader
Publication date: 7th May 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
In the courtroom, they’re rivals. In the bedroom, they’re . . . divorced. But could the road trip from hell lead to a second chance at love?
Aubrey Gates is the hottest divorce lawyer in Chicago, a barb-tongued stiletto with legs that go on for miles. When her cool gray eyes meet mine across the battlefield, I want her like I’ve never wanted anyone or anything. Then I remember who she is: the woman who brought me to my knees. The woman who destroyed my faith in relationships.
The woman I used to call . . . wife.
And she needs a favor from me, Grant Lincoln.
It seems my ex forgot to mention the demise of our marriage to her dear old grammie, and now we’re both expected to attend her ninetieth birthday party. In Boston. And because it isn’t already awkward enough, Aubrey and I are driving there together from Chicago. That’s more than a thousand miles of tension, heartbreak, and barely concealed lust.
A little piece of paper might say we’re over, but this road trip is the true test. I intend to get my wife back . . . and I won’t stop until “I do.”
I haven’t read anything by this author before, but the synopsis was intriguing. And now, I’m kicking myself, because I’ve clearly been missing out!
I found myself really enjoying this book. There were humorous elements to the tale, but they were interspersed with a strongly emotional narrative which gave the book added depth and heart.
And as for this couple? OK, Aubrey is a far more frustrating character than I expected her to be, and yet, in the context of the story, it works.
I’ll definitely be looking out for more books from this author.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Originally from Ireland, USA Today bestselling author Kate Meader cut her romance reader teeth on Maeve Binchy and Jilly Cooper novels, with some Harlequins thrown in for variety. Give her tales about brooding mill owners, oversexed equestrians, and men who can rock an apron or a fire hose, and she’s there. Now based in Chicago, she writes sexy contemporary romance with alpha heroes and strong heroines – and heroes – who can match their men quip for quip.
