The chemistry between Felicity and Jared is both adorable and electrifying. Felicity is all kinds of innocent, whereas Jared is older than his age. Yet somehow they make the idea of falling in love with an opposite not only feel plausible, but idyllic.
I loved how the doubts and problems that the relationship faces are discussed every step of the way. At no time is the reader left asking whether that situation really would have worked in the real world, but on the flip side the story still does feel heady and romantic.
As always, my love for secondary characters must be addressed, and the author did a fabulous job developing not just characters for future books, but also characters that are clearly meant to support the main players as the series continues.
I can’t wait for the next book in this series. Well played!
“Sometimes a girl wants to know if a man will fight for her. So if you want her bad enough, fight for her.”
Lauren Smith is a new to me author and I was drawn to this book because of “Legal” being in the title. I do love books set in that domain and hot lawyers are definitely easy to read about. Legally Charming is a book I enjoyed, it was what I deem an “easy read,” everything was nice, sweet with a little angst and a lot of insta love.
Felicity Hart was a likeable character in so far as she was sweet, innocent and naïve, but for me the damsel in distress act did get a little old after a while. For someone extremely intelligent, I found her very flaky and she was just a little too wet for me to warm up to. Felicity was very insecure about herself, especially her curves, and she couldn’t see the beautiful woman underneath despite who and how many times people told her otherwise. Felicity was however extremely independent which was a fantastic trait, even if rather annoying at times when you just wanted her to accept help when she really needed it. Overall though, I liked her.
Jared Redmond was your typical red blooded, alpha lawyer. Jared worked all the hour’s god sends to further his career and hopefully make partner in the firm that is owned by his ex-girlfriend’s father (cue drama). He wasn’t a defender or prosecutor but worked in real estate law which is apparently just as demanding. Jared had no time for romance or relationships, his work ethic had only one track, focus, focus, focus. Jared was extremely good at his job and that is the way he wanted it to stay or at least did until he wandered in on a sleeping Felicity in his bed.
“…You don’t walk away from the chemistry we have. When I touch you? It makes my entire body burn. I’ve never felt that way about anyone else.”
Legally Charming was the proverbial player to love sick puppy story line and was predictable, the little plot twist I could see coming a mile away and the ex-girlfriend drama was a foregone conclusion, but for an easy read this was perfect. Personally, I would have liked a little more depth to the characters but Lauren Smith surprised me when my eyes were leaking at one point so the emotional connection I crave was there. I was curled up on my sofa reading away without a care in the world, this was a great lazy weekend read.
Legally Charming is the first book in the new adult contemporary romance Ever After series by Lauren Smith. This is my second book by Lauren, and I liked it more than I did the first book of hers. (Which was the first book in her British Stepbrother series.) Legally Charming was a very cute read. I enjoyed it. Since the series is called Ever After you can make some assumptions that they are going to be cute, slightly cheesy romances. And they are…but I dug that about this book. It was the kind of cheesy happy I was in the mood for.
Legally Charming is the story of Felicity and Jared, who are swept up in a whirlwind quick romance. So if insta love isn’t your thing, this might not be the book for you. (They didn’t fall in love at first sight, but they did fall in love within a week.) But, like I said, I really liked the story and sweet romance between Jared and Felicity. I loved how chivalrous Jared was. He really goes out of his way to make sure Felicity was taken care of. I don’t buy for one second that Jared used to be a bad boy.
I enjoyed Legally Charming. I love that the story was on the longer side (almost 400 pages), I really liked the characters, I loved their sweet romance, and the writing is great. I get a weird kick about reading stories where one of the characters is a lawyer. I like seeing what kind of legal stuff the author is going to work in. (I know, I know only other lawyers appreciate things like that, but I can always tell when the author is actually an attorney. Lauren is.)
But there were a couple of things that had me wavering between 3.5 and 4 stars. (I ended up rounding up to 4 stars.) One was just how quickly they fell in love. It seemed a little abrupt, even for me. And then there was the other thing. Now, I should put a disclaimer in. Most people would not be annoyed by this thing View Spoiler » but it is not my cup of tea. So that kind of had me groaning, because I knew it was going to take the story into a different direction. It still ended up being a good story. Even with that thing.
Bottom line: Legally Charming is a great read. If you are a fan of sweet romances, you will really enjoy this one. I can’t wait to read the next book in the Ever After series!
