Summary (cr: goodreads)

Behind closed doors, they're laying down the law.

When it comes to the laws of attraction...
Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson are lawyers who know the meaning of objection. A feminist to the bone, Payton has fought hard to succeed in a profession dominated by men. Born wealthy, privileged, and cocky, J.D. has fought hard to ignore her. Face-to-face, they're perfectly civil. They have to be. For eight years they have kept a safe distance and tolerated each other as coworkers for one reason: to make partner at the firm

There are no rules...
But all bets are off when they're asked to join forces on a major case. Though apprehensive at first, they begin to appreciate each other's dedication to the law—and the sparks between them quickly turn into attraction. But the increasingly hot connection does not last long when they discover that only one of them will be named partner. Now it's an all-out war. And the battle between the sexes is bound to make these lawyers hot under the collar.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

This is one of those stories where the protagonists retort and kind of banter all the time and that kind of scenario reels me in...especially if the words being thrown are witty and hilarious.

Payton Kendall and J.D Jameson are both lawyers in the running to be a partner in their firm. So...all hell breaks loose when the firm decided that they would only take in one partner this year and since the company's policy is "up or leave", one of them is destined to resign. Add in a bit of sexual tension and you have the hilarious competition between the protagonists. Though the ending is predictable (where they both had feelings for each other all this time and they've been hiding it perfectly + THE first misunderstanding...duh! so obvious) I did enjoy the story and I guess I'll try reading other books written by this author.

Till the next read...
