Legally Charming (Ever After #1) by Lauren Smith

My Rating: 5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Ever After #1.
Subject: Real life prince charming finds his princess.

Felicity Hart has one goal: Completing her masters in art. Falling in love isn’t part of the plan. She reluctantly agrees to attend a Halloween party with her best friend. After sneaking away from the party and falling asleep in an unoccupied room, she wakes to the sexiest pair of eyes she’s ever seen. Eyes that belong to the one man who could turn her well organized world upside down. When he flashes that wicked, panty-melting smile at her the vow to not fall in love seems impossible… 


Jared Redmond used to be the ultimate bad boy. But now his legal career is taking off and the partners of his firm are trusting him with high-dollar real estate transactions. Jared’s king-size bed is empty. But when he arrives home on Halloween to find a princess sleeping in his bed – his all work and no play attitude goes out the window. There’s nothing he wants more than to explore the hidden desires of this mysterious beauty and show her just how much of a bad boy he really is by fulfilling her every fantasy. 


Underneath the glitter of this fairy tale romance, Felicity and Jared might have found true love. But the mounting pressure of their real lives takes hold again and Jared and Felicity are pulled further and further apart. Can they find their fairy tale ending or will they be left with the dying embers of what could have been? 

My Review

Book given on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I usually know if I'm going to fall in love with a book when the characters meet, there's something magical about the way in which the author chooses to make that happen. This moment gives us an idea of how their entire relationship is gonna pan out. 

In this book, I couldn't help by feel butterflies in my stomach when Jared stood in the doorway watching this beautiful princess sleeping in his bed, a true fairy tale story.

Unfortunately, this is life, not a fairy tale, so they had a lot of problems to overcome before they could achieve that happily ever after. But if their feelings were real, they would find the way back to each other after each fight.

Felicity was scared, she has lived a calm, organised life until now, and letting go is not one of her favourite things to do. She has low self stem and that paired with her inexperience, makes this whole situation much more difficult. 
I have to say I was mad at her for running, because I wouldn't have done that in her place, she was not thinking clearly, but eventually she saw the light and I can forgive her for hurting Jared.

The author's point in the book was to make us see that sometimes people put work and success in the first place and forget about the important things in life, like love and family. If you have those, then the other things tend to work themselves out.

A beautiful story! Can't wait for the next one!
