Four years ago, Mitch Lawson moved across the breezeway from Mara Hanover and she fell in love with the tall, good-looking police detective who had an uncanny ability to dress well even though he’s single. It was not a stalker kind of love; she knows she has no hope since Mitch is way out of her league. That doesn’t change the fact that he’s her dream man.
Then one day Mara’s faucet won’t turn off and she knows nothing about plumbing. Being a good guy, Mitch offers to help then he invites himself over for pizza. Mara gives it a go but finds herself running away from him (literally) on their first date, standing him up their second and then she runs into him (again literally) on her way to save her ne’er do well, criminal cousin’s kids who’d just run away from their ne’er do well, criminal Dad.
Suddenly, Mara finds she has on her hands the guardianship of two kids and a gorgeous police detective who’s willing to do anything to help out… including giving fabulous foot rubs.
But Mara knows who she is and where she came from and she knows Detective Mitch Lawson is better than her. Hot law man Mitch disagrees and his challenge is to convince Mara to let go of her past and he sets about building a family at the same time he finds he also needs to protect them all against known and unknown adversaries that would tear them apart.
Review: 4 Stars
Law Man is a great addition to the Dream Man Series! You can find drama, passion and family in this one. It captured my attention immediately and I loved it. I wanted to know more about Mitch in Mystery Man and I got that chance with this book.
First off, I have to share that I pictured the actor from Something Borrowed as Mitch. He is perfect for Mitch!
Mitch and Mara live in the same building. They have been attracted to one another for years but of course never acted on their feelings. Mara has issues from her past that she can't seem to escape. Low self esteem, trashy family, etc... Mitch is out of her league. Mitch is a perfect dream man. He falls in love with her and her baggage no questions asked.
Once again KA creates a story line that feels realistic. One of the best parts in these books is the epilogue. KA does a great job in wrapping up the characters' lives. Law Man is a great addition to the series!
