Book Review: Best Practice by Carsen Taite
I have really enjoyed this series about a group of friends that start a small law practice together, thinking they would be able to set the rules and create a nice work/life balance. But starting any business is hard work and they have found themselves busier than ever.
This is the 3rd book in then ‘Legal Affairs’ lineup. Grace Maldonado is the protagonist this time. She ends up volunteering to travel to another country to get Campbell’s sister out of a jam. Grace remembers Perry as the younger sister who was always trying to tag along with them. But it is hard for her to reconcile that little girl with the attractive and opinionated woman she confronts.
I didn’t click with this installment as much as I did with the others. To be honest, I didn’t really like Perry all that much. She was way too holier than thou about all the usual things people try to preach to others who aren’t interested. Just when I would think that Perry and Grace were getting closer, there was some stupid disagreement that would take me right out of it. It wasn’t that cute type of argument that you feel like there is fire between the two characters. They were situations where I just felt like Grace should walk away and say good riddance.
I did think the premise was interesting. I love forbidden romance. Getting involved with your best friend’s little sister seems super taboo to me. Grace coming to terms with her attraction and feelings for Perry was entertaining.
Overall, I liked it. I wish that I liked Perry more and I was a bit disappointed when things finally got revealed. I was hoping for something more climactic.
I recommend this to people who like to read about romance, lawyers, opinionated women, travel, friend’s little sisters you should stay away from, and crazy ladies on the street.
I received an ARC from Bold Strokes Books for an honest review
