Apart from reading a Christmas-themed (very awesome) book, this is my first Jay Northcote book and I’ll be sure to take a definite look at this author’s backlist. Though I have to say I never thought I’d like a story about two lawyers.
The Law of Attraction is a sweet, fleshed-out romance between two unlikely men. Although both lawyers, Alec and Ed are very much different. Alec is a 30 something established lawyer on the fast track to making partner. He’s calm and controlled and very much in the closet by his own design. Ed, on the other hand has just arrived on the lawyer scene, knows who he is and is comfortable in his skin. Yet from the first time they meet, their is a flame between the two that won’t be easily extinguished.
The Law of Attraction is a well written, balanced story. Not once does the story get boring even though it doesn’t have ‘great big drama’ or the well-used ‘miscommunication’ trope. The story is, in fact, very British and at the same time very engaging and blessedly normal for a romance.
All in all a very good story to pick up for a read on the beach or in the garden.
