Camilla Sweeten is serious about her job in the County Attorney’s office. She’s even working up the courage to ask her boss to consider her for promotion to deputy.
Then, into court walks the gorgeous Zane Holyoake, and disaster strikes—in the form of a total brain fog right in the middle of her closing arguments. In front of both her boss and the meanest bear of a judge in the county, Camilla hears herself saying, “Like, I totally made my point,” as though she’d flown in from 1980s California in a time machine airplane.
Now her boss will never consider her for deputy—especially since Zane turns out to be a new lawyer, possibly brought in to steal her dream job.
But when a notorious criminal is caught in their county, Camilla must focus on getting the thief convicted and not on Zane, who smells heavenly and is bent on distracting her with lunch offers and wacky Boy Scout stories that may melt her many resolves.
It’s going to take incredible willpower to ignore this attractive nuisance.
Attractive Nuisance is the first book in the Legally in Love Series by best-selling romantic comedy author Jennifer Griffith.
Camilla is a complete perfectionist, eager to impress her boss into earning the new position that just opened up. She spends too much time working, going over every detail over and over, aiming to be the best she can be. She is on the right track until she messes up the closing argument during a hearing due to the wonderful Zane Holyoake.
She does not need any distractions right now, certainly not Zane, the gorgeous and ambitious attorney also out to get the position of Deputy County Attorney.
Yet she finds herself struggling to resist his charm and great looks. Slowly she starts to question her own relationship reservations, and wonders if Zane is worth taking a chance on.
This book was the perfect romantic comedy, that kept me turning the pages, eager to find out where it would lead. I found myself laughing out loud several times throughout the book due to the witty dialogue between Zane and Camilla.
The supporting charaters are very entertaining, and make for a great extra dimension to this read. Each carather is portrayed in such a way you get a vivid image of them, and you find yourself connecting to them immidately. I could feel along with Camilla due to the great naration skills of Ms Griffith.
I really enjoyed this read, and look forward to reading more of her work.
