Review by Veronica

“She looks happy. Content. Alluring. Watching her could become a new guilty pleasure of mine. Who am I kidding; it already has.”

The Law of Attraction is a fabulous and different rom-com that I found myself really enjoying.

A Hotshot Manhattan Attorney.

Drew Harrington knows exactly who he is—a legal shark with a love ‘em and leave ‘em attitude that works just fine in his cutthroat world. He’s on the cusp of being named a partner in his firm, but only if he can prove to his colleagues that he has a more human side.

A Sweetheart of a British Patisserie Chef.

Becky Fletcher is running from her past, so the last thing she’s looking for is love. What she does want is a friendly face in a cold city. Her sunny outlook is the perfect opposite to Drew’s hard exterior, but can she afford to let down her guard?

One fateful meeting at a bagel cart.

They sound like a match made in heaven—or is it a car crash?

Ok, this is one of those books that bookworms will love or hate. I love it, but some readers might have a problem with its structure. Most of the story is told from the hero’s POV, creating a different reading experience. We are only in Becky’s head through a couple of flashback chapters. I loved the fact that Laura decided to do something different. Usually, the hero is the mysterious character in a romance book, and romance readers often try to guess what is happening in his head and what happened in his past. This time we have no idea who Becky really is. We get small glimpses of her past, but nothing big is revealed until the end. I loved how this created this different reading experience and enjoyed being in Drew’s head. I think some readers might not enjoy spending the entire book with Drew because he’s that typical bachelor guy, and his world reflects it. He is a guy’s guy. I didn’t mind it, but I think that is because I work and hang out with a lot of guys. So, I am used to their sense of humour, way of thinking and acting. But I realize that diving into that world can be jarring for some. 

Drew’s character has plenty of growth. I love that he didn’t have to give up his career goal to get his happy ending. Laura does an excellent job showing readers that finding that balance between work and personal life is key to a happy life, something I completely agree with. I also adored Drew’s relationship with his family; it was great seeing this softer and more embarrassed side of him. It made him more human and relatable. I also loved Becky’s character. I enjoyed the fact that she was this mystery to me. I wanted to know more about this bubbly chef. 

I love a good grumpy sunshine romance, and this book did a fabulous job incorporating that trope into the story. I adored the meet-cute between Drew and Becky. I loved that her actions bewitched Drew, and he couldn’t get her out of his head. Drew and Becky are wonderful together. The chemistry is there right from the between, and I ate up every cute and spicy moment between these two. 

The Law of Attraction is a fun and unique rom-com.
