4 Stars (Re-read 12/20/2016)
Overall Opinion: This was an engaging, fun, and sexy book! I remembered some things, but other things I had forgotten. Once I got to the cliffy, I completely remembered my feelings of shock! It's a doozy! At the time I read it the first time it was just released and I didn't realize it was so short or to be part of a series, so I was pretty ticked that it ended the way it did. Thankfully the other two books are out now so I can binge read them (yes, that's a thing ;D) as if they are one book! On to the next book Reasonable Doubt: Volume 2...
**See Goodreads.com/NMmomof4 for my full review with spoilers**
Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Aubrey and Andrew's story. I'm going to keep this brief so I don't ruin it. They've been in communication through a lawyer chat type of thing for over 6 months, and they're taking their friendship past the chat room with daily texts and phone calls. They have a flirty banter and some good sexual tension between them, but overall they have established a strong friendship. They meet for the first time in a coincidental way, and all things get messed up. There is some drama and some sexy times... and we're left in a cliffy for the next book.
POV: This alternated between Aubrey and Andrew's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Good. It's not a secret that I'm not a fan of the short book/novella because it doesn't have enough time to develop a proper connection between the h and H without it feeling too instalove for me (or my own connection to the story). With this being continued with 2 other books I didn't feel that way here. It flowed well and I never skimmed.
Instalove: No. Stronger feelings aren't in play yet.
H rating: 3.5 stars. Andrew. He was a jerk, but I have a feeling that there is something else there that makes him that way. So...I guess he is a likable jerk, and the dirty talking doesn't hurt ;)
h rating: 3.5 stars. Aubrey. I liked her, but I did want her to be a little more honest with the H at times.
Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed.
Heat level: Moderate. They have some hot chemistry and scenes, but not so much it took away from the story.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: No
Sex scene with OW or OM: Yes
Separation: No, but they aren't even officially "together" at this point
Closure: This ends on a major cliffhanger, but the other 2 books are already released.
How I got it: I paid $0.99 for it back in 2014 on Amazon.
This is a book that I credit my Goodreads friends for enticing me to read. I had noticed that this book had been getting stellar reviews, and couldn't resist to give it a try at only $0.99 for the first installment. Boy can my Goodreads friends pick good books! If you love dirty talking, alpha males, then you will not want to miss Reasonable Doubt! I'm hooked! At only 78 pages, this is a book that you will read in a sitting, especially once you become mesmerized by Andrew's unique allure.
Andrew is a high profile lawyer, who doesn't believe in relationships. He finds his women online and is only interested in one thing: casual sex, and he never goes back for seconds.
Then he meets "Alyssa" on a lawyers only website. Intending only to get some legal advice, to help her get through her pre-law classes, she uses her mother's information to gain access to the site and passes herself off as a 27 year-old lawyer and completely unattractive.
"Alyssa" and Andrew become "friends" over their online and phone chats over a number of months, and Andrew is hooked. He has to find a way convince her to bed him. Then he finds out she lied to him, and if there is one thing he hates, it's lies.
He's determined to teach her a lesson, but who will actually be the one to learn a lesson in this highly volatile, sexual tension filled relationship?
This book is hot with a capital "H"! Andrew is my favorite type of hero, and I love romances where the bad boy hero is tamed. The book ends in a huge cliffhanger, and I can't wait to read the second installment of Reasonable Doubt to see which direction this story takes next.
Aside from me being pissed at the release schedule & the author delaying part 2 (for this reason I try to stay away from serial novellas), I loved this section. I'm not sure if it's fair to review just one part, because it is only a section of the book. BUT, I will and it's great. It is a pretty unique story, kind of like you've got mail, but dirty, haha. Andrew is a total jerk, but it cracks me up and I love it, and I think thats a testament to the author, for making such an a-hole likable. The relationship and banter b/t Andrew and Alyssa is hilarious and and they have major chemistry. Super hot.
there is a cliffhanger ending, which is annoying, but that's to be expected w/ these serials
side note: I don't really get how Aubrey is 22 and just starting her junior year of college, most people graduate college at 21-22. And it is unlikely that she's been held back or is late in credits b/c her parents are crazy about education and would make sure she was on track.
[if i were the author, however, I probably would've made all of part one purely phone/internet relationship and ended it w/ her intern interview w/ him finding out about her. This way would allow for more development of the stories/characters and would allow for more of the creative writing that we get glimpses of plus I just wish there was more of the phone/email banter. It would've still been super enjoyable and sexy, and I think readers would be dying for part 2 even more than they are now. Anyway, just my opinion.]
