My Rating: 5 Stars!
Now that his best friend, Josh, has happily settled down with his true love on a Montana ranch, small-town lawyer Ty Sullivan starts thinking that maybe single life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And when Lauren Cunningham’s no-good ex-husband comes after her for an unexpected trust fund, Ty steps in to protect her. But soon he can’t help but think of her as more than a client. Lauren’s in no mood to jump into another relationship, so how can Ty convince her that her mistake wasn’t getting married, but marrying the wrong guy?
Oh, Ms. Proby... Are you sure I can't just stick you in my pocket and read what you write over your shoulder? Everything this lovely author writes is amazing. Seducing Lauren, however, hit it out of the ball park, Emotions hit higher and lower. The subject matter is a bit darker than previous Proby novels I've read, but it's written in a way that makes me connect with the characters on an even deeper level. I was taken to the brink of suspense and darkness only to be jerked back into the warm arms of the love between Ty and Lauren.
Lauren is trying to escape a horrible marriage. With the papers signed she thinks she can finally move on, until her ex comes knocking and tossing around threats verbal and physical. Lauren has no choice but to deal with this in a legal medium. She's hell bent that her ex will not receive a dime or scare her away from her town. Ty the resident lawyer at first pawns Lauren off on his associate. Why? Well conflict of interest of course. It seems our hunky lawyer has been pining after Lauren. But when he realizes the severity of the situation, Ty is stuck to her like glue. Sooner rather than later, Ty and Lauren have found they their mind-blowing chemistry just can't be denied. But being so close, and hanging out all the time leads Lauren to divulge her secret to Ty. A secret that may just cause her ex to come out fists swinging and up the ante. As their relationship becomes more serious, the danger draws closer. Close enough that it may tear Lauren and Ty up for good.
Ty is my kind of hero. He's sweet, dirty-mouthed, sexy and thoughtful. Lauren, well she can hold her own. Yet, while they're both extremely independent they soon come to rely on each other and I loved watching it happen. I got lost in their happiness and adventures. I was so wrapped up in them as a couple that when other recurring aspects popped up again I thought: "Oh yeahhh!". Not saying that the story line was boring, just that Ty and Lauren's love consumed me as a reader to the point where I was only focused on them. In true Proby fashion you can expect so very heated scenes and a book that will enrapture you. This book took my excitement level about this series up to a whole new level. And what am I SO looking forward to? Jillian's story. Can you see me bouncing up and down? Well, I am. I know fireworks are just going to explode in the next installment of this series. So considering me shoving Seducing Lauren onto the top of your TBR list and hop on this steamy, wonderful, amazing train!
