There was/is such great potential here that I have simply got to write about my experience reading Ms. Ryan's book. I especially feel the need once I learned that Ms. Ryan is a Best Selling author. As I was reading this book, I really thought she was a newbie.

Perhaps our readers have become less critical of the things discerning readers have fought against for years: the 5-minute conversation, over-the-top coincidences, or plot-driven stories. But whatever the reason for allowing these things to be in a story, all three were in this one, and for me, that's why I gave this book 2 stars.

Five-minute conversation: the talk that Jack should have had with Chad. The discussion of feelings that Jack and Kelly should have had several times. All the times when a potential disaster could have been averted if the characters had just talked for a few minutes is NOT what an author should use as a plot device.

Over-the-top contrivances: Giving Jennie a job in security after she blatantly spied on her boss. Nope. Not going to believe it. Neither will many, many discriminating readers.

*************MAJOR SPOILER ALERT******************

Plot-driven stories: First, Jennie, the spy. Not developed. Then, got to marry. Not developed. Next, convince Aunt that marriage is real. Not developed. Then, Jack and Kelly's relationship, TOLD, not SHOWN, therefore, not developed. And finally, human trafficking? Really? Also, undeveloped.

*************END MAJOR SPOILER ALERT**************

Why are they all underdeveloped or not developed? Because in each instance these plot devices were merely used to complete a story, move the characters toward the end of the book, to their HEA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming Couple and Stunning Plot Twists October 3, 2013
By Lori
Format:Kindle Edition
Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews!

If you are a lover of forced seduction romances, like I am, you will be completely captivated by Lori Ryan's Legal Ease, the first installment of the Sutton capital series.

Jack Sutton, CEO of Sutton Capital, finds himself in a predicament--find a bride before the end of the week or lose controlling interest in his company. Kelly Bradley, after learning about Jack's situation from his spying secretary, hatches a plan, one year of marriage in exchange for tuition for law school. No one is more surprised than Jack when Kelly walks into a meeting and announces that she is his fiancée since they've never met before. Struck by her boldness and poor negotiating strategy, Jack, who is always in charge, decides to go along with the scheme. Kelly can't help but notice Jack's stunning good looks and his commanding presence and wonders if she has made a huge mistake. Jack, a ball-breaker at work, shows his softer side with Kelly, which I found adorable. Similarly, Kelly can be tough as nails and yet still vulnerable, which I really liked about her. Against her better judgment, Kelly falls for Jack, but knowing he has dated supermodels leaves her feeling like she just can't compete. When Jack learns of Kelly's insecurities, he comes up with a foolproof romantic plan to show Kelly his true feelings, which makes Jack the best kind of leading man. The chemistry between the two slowly simmers until they both acknowledge their attraction to each other. Their bedroom play is romantic and electrifying. I really enjoyed seeing Jack and Kelly go from being just friends to falling totally in love with each other.

With a charming couple and stunning plot twists, Legal Ease is the splendid launch to a new series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put my kindle down... April 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Captivating from beginning to end. This is not one of those books that takes 50 pages to engage you. The story takes off right from page one with gripping detail and a VERY creative plot that keep you turning the pages way into the night. Just when you think the story is told Ms. Ryan whips out an exciting new twist toward the end making this much more than just another romance novel (although the romance part is definitely a hot focus, you shall see!). The only reason I give this four stars instead of five is because the twist at the end could have been developed a little more, that part of the tale ended a touch too quickly for me. I am known as a tough critic but this is overall an excellent read!

3.0 out of 5 stars A harlequin type romance.... October 22, 2013
By Ann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3.5 stars. New author for me. This is a cute story with a Harlequin type feel. Fun to watch the "fake marriage" between 2 strangers (Jack/Kelly) evolve quickly into friendship and love. Good group of side characters that are sure to get their HEA's (happily ever after) in later bks. This was a quick, easy and enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next book! April 22, 2013
By Linds
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Awesome book! I received a prerelease copy and loved it! It's a quick and fun read. Initially I wished there had been a little more character development of Kelly before she heard about Jack's predicament, but the plot rolled out so quickly afterward that it wasn't long before I felt like I knew Kelly. I loved the characters and loved the plot twists. I'm looking forward to the next book, now!
