I'm delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for The Law of Attraction by Roxie Cooper. Today you can catch my review for this fun and gorgeous story. There is also a fab giveaway to enter but first of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
Amanda Bentley has always dreamed of being a barrister…
But as a platinum blonde bombshell from the wrong side of town, with a perfect tan and sleek high heels, she doesn’t exactly look the part – or fit in with the brash public school boys and cold posh girls of Newcastle Crown Court’s robing room. Amanda’s never been one to back down from a challenge, and so when she wins a prestigious pupillage following law school, she’s determined to make the most of her chance – and make all her dreams come true.
Only three things stand in her way: Sid Ryder – the sexy, irresistible barrister who she absolutely cannot, under any circumstances, sleep with. At all. Marty Gregg – her smarmy law school nemesis, who she's in direct competition with for the top job. And her big, dark secret that could jeopardise everything she's worked so hard for.
Who said that following the laws of attraction was going to be easy…?
Perfects for fans of Legally Blonde, Lindsey Kelk and Joanna Bolouri
The Law of Attraction just came across as effortless it's such an engaging story and Amanda's character is well written with a wonderful down to earth personality. I got so attached to Amanda and the journey she was on, I was willing everything to go well for her and cursing Marty every step of the way. I really hoped he would get his comeuppance. Amanda is a fabulous role model as she tries to stay true to herself even when antagonised I really don't think I could have been so calm. Then one other important thing is that she is a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer need I say more! I was laughing on multiple occasions I loved Amanda's one liners some of the most entertaining parts in this book were when Amanda goes about her day to day life as she begins her pupillage. With her feisty ways and intelligence that blows away the stereotypes regarding her looks she is just so entertaining.
With some serious chemistry between Sid and Amanda that was ever so flirty, I really loved their interactions. I have to say some of my favourite parts in this story were the scenes with Skylar I loved their talks and even though he sometimes said the wrong thing you could tell he is in Amanda's corner. Even though there is romance it doesn't overpower the story it just enhanced the overall storyline. It really wasn't the main theme as you get to see Amanda develop as a character in her own right through all the mistakes, successes and difficulties that she experiences.
It's a story that shows us that even if you don't necessarily have things like money or come from the right family sheer determination will hopefully set you on the right path. We all want to follow our dreams and who knows everything might just slot into place. There is also depth to the story with some emotional parts which balances perfectly with all fun and light hearted parts. I always think that a truly engaging book is one where you literally don't want any interruptions and this book is a perfect example of this. I literally got myself a cuppa and some chocolate and then finished The Law of Attraction in one evening, I just couldn't put it down!
There is drama, laughs and a seriously warm hearted vibe all packaged together to make such a charming and engaging story.
Five gorgeous stars for this story!
With thanks to Jenny at Neverland Blog Tours & Netgalley for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
Roxie was born and bred in Middlesbrough. After studying Classics at University, she became a dancer in a nightclub for a few years, before going travelling and living in Australia. When she returned, she swapped dancing on a bar, to practising at the Bar, and became a barrister for 7 years.
It was after being constantly told “Ooh! You don’t look like a barrister!” by absolutely everyone she met, that the idea for her debut novel was born.
Roxie lives in Yarm, a pretty little market town in the North-East. She’s a bit (lot) obsessed with Prince and spends far too much time watching him on YouTube. Her hobbies include watching musicals, making her hair as big (and blonde) as possible, and wishing she was Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
