A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing—with his southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he’s a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him.
Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan.
Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved ten-year-old daughter. Jenny is getting married—to someone who isn’t him.
That’s definitely not part of the plan.
Sofia Santos is a city-raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions.
But when Stanton, her “friend with mind-blowing benefits,” begs her for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi, to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves. Her head tells her she’s crazy…and her heart says something else entirely.
What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-toting Nana?
The Bourbon flows, passions rise, and even the best-laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.
Review by: Gina
Sometimes, you just find that book that sucks you in and never lets go until the very last page, yeah, this book did that to me! It was such an emotional rollercoaster! Hold on because you are in for one crazy ride! Overruled had everything you could ask in a book...several steamy scenes, humor, passion, angst, heartbreak, love, and so much more!
I have a love/hate relationship with Stanton. During the beginning I was Team Stanton, all the way, but then he got me so frustrated. I just wanted to grab him by the shoulders, shake him, and tell him "What is wrong with you?!? Do you not see what is right in front of you?!?". So that frustration brought me to Team Sofia! I love a strong female heroine and Sofia is just that. She's strong, passionate, and independent. I can completely relate to Sofia and what she goes through with Stanton, so I felt really connected with her.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, fantastic story line, it was well written, and I thought the pace of the story was perfect. There weren't any slow parts to the story. I highly recommend Overruled, I don't think you will be disappointed!
