A one-night stand becomes a law librarian’s newest patron.
Foster Deacon has not returned home to Denver from New York City to settle down, as his mom thinks; he’s there in order to work at a new law firm, without any help from his dad, and then he's leaving again. He has mixed feelings about his move, but on his first night home, he receives a sign that he’s made the right decision—he meets a cute blonde in a bar looking for a fling and brings her home. When he goes to work on Monday, however, his fling is sitting behind the reference desk. The blonde turns out to be Becky Schrader, who thought the “dirty lumberjack” she picked up would be the perfect one-night stand, until he walked through the doors of her law library as her firm’s hotshot new associate. Foster was supposed to be a break from trying to find Mr. Right, not a second date, and in any event, she no longer dates lawyers. Even though the last thing either wants is an intraoffice romance, tortured by already knowing how good they are together, both find excuses to stay in touch, even sinking so low as to flirt through emails about legal journal subscriptions. The sparks between Foster and Becky from the start make their story a wee bit spicier than Title's (The Undateable, 2017, etc.) first two Librarians in Love books, and a hefty subplot gives it more heart than anyone would expect from a love story centered around a law firm. Title has completed her trilogy with yet another very funny romance that celebrates a headstrong librarian heroine, though, like the first two books, this entry can be read on its own and will attract new readers enticed by her alpha lawyer hero. In particular, fans of Jennifer Crusie who haven’t yet discovered Title’s knack for sparkling contemporary stories will take to this one before the end of the first chapter.
A charming finale to a contemporary romance series good enough to wipe out years of librarian stereotypes.
