Wills & Trust (A Legally in Love Romance)
by Jennifer Griffith
Length: about 330 pages
Genre: clean romance
She's been named in a stranger's will. He's her only option for a lawyer. Can he earn back her trust?
Town beauty queen Brooke Chadwick knows Dane Rockwell will never take a second look at his best friend’s younger sister, no matter how much she’s longed for him. She’s a kid nuisance. A pity case he played catch with after her parents died in an accident.
Dane Rockwell is a Rockwell—of the felons, frauds, and cheats Rockwells in town. How can he possibly ask Brooke Chadwick—of the upstanding, reputable Chadwicks in town—to consider him worthy?
Now Dane is back in town with three things: a ring in his pocket, a kiss burning on his mouth for her, and a law degree to prove his worthiness. Brooke is about to say yes to a proposal, but not Dane’s. Disappointment looms.
My Review: 5 Stars
Brooke has always had a crush on her brother's best friend, but he's always been off-limits. When Dane steps in for her missing boyfriend at a charity event, sparks FLY right off the pages. And a scandalous kiss right in church doesn't help the gossip.
I hate bullies and Brooke has to deal with a big one when she's named in a stranger's will. I cannot believe the lengths some people will go to in order to get their way. At the risk of his career, Dane once again comes to the rescue--this time as her lawyer.
There are so many little threads to this story, but baseball and Little League is a central one that really ties the story together. I love what Dane is willing to go through to earn Brooke's trust, especially because the events of her recent past. Together, they are able to navigate a dangerous and confusing legal threat, all while learning to recognize their true desires and feelings.
I really loved the characters, as well as the setting and plot. But the sparks? Holy swoon!! Those fun moments of chemistry were definitely my favorites.
Content: mild romance (kissing, cheating); very mild religious elements.
