Series:  Lawyers Behaving Badly #5


Despite the diamond on her finger, Maisie’s future has never looked so grim. Her arch-rival wants revenge, and she knows Maisie’s secret.

Ethan Brennbach, Trent Banno, and Raphael Lattimore aren’t just brilliant lawyers. They’re also complicated, dominant billionaires. If they find out what Maisie did…

The gorgeous, powerful men love her enough to lay down strict discipline.

They love her enough to marry her for her protection.

But what will happen when they realize she’s not worth the trouble?

My Thoughts

Well things are coming to a head with the lawyers, and with Maisie and with the case itself.  There’s so much uncertainty around what Maisie’s done and what that means for her future with the men, and if that weren’t enough, Byron is still on the loose and no one knows what he’s going to do.

Top that off with things moving forward with the search for Norman’s killer, and Heather and Jayne coming into the fold a bit more.  We know that Heather is a loose cannon and she’s got a vendetta against Maisie so it’s a matter of time before she takes an opening and talks to Ethan to put Maisie on blast.

If you remember from the last book, we know that Maisie has to marry one of the guys to protect her, but that’s not the only reason as we have learned that there are definite feelings among the group.  the question came down to which guy was going to be her husband legally and we learned that Ethan was the winner.  A great thing given that he seems to be the most alpha, but he’s also the most frightening.

True to Cleo Peitsche’s style, we get some of the hottest scenes between this foursome.  We know that they don’t just like it kinky and dirty but they like their toys and their dungeons.  That’s where we spend some time – both good and bad.  I think that Maisie uses it as a way to get things off her chest and that angers the men given that they want those types of games to be more of an enjoyable thing and not as a means to hide.

Regardless – we get a great ending and resolution to the story – and we see how things play out between all of the necessary players.  Finding out the killer took some time, but i think that it was the right person given where the story had taken us.  Seeing where Heather ended up as well was a nice bit of closure since we never wanted her to suffer, yet she was so vile to Maisie that you also didn’t want her to skate free.  All in all though, i’m really happy with how this series ran and i’m bummed that it’s over.  Have a great day all!
