The Inconvenient Laws of Attraction - Trish Wylie (HR #4302 - Mar 2012)

Laying down the law... Lawyer Olivia Brannigan has faced down some cool customers in her time. But latest client Blake Clayton takes emotional control to a whole new level. The man didn’t even bat an eyelid when he discovered he’d inherited a fortune from his estranged father! Blake doesn’t want guilt money – the only thing piquing his interest is the tough-talking, sweet-looking lawyer that comes with his new property portfolio. Dating on the job isn’t in Olivia’s ‘Guide to Good Client-Lawyer Relationships’, and it certainly doesn’t sit easily with her ‘no strings’ attitude… But aren’t rules always made to be broken?

Good book.  Blake really didn't want anything to do with his father's money or businesses.   He was very attracted to Olivia, and had no problem pursuing her, despite their professional relationship.  But he was just after sex -- he kept his emotions tightly bottled up.  Olivia wanted to do what was right for Blake, but was just as strongly attracted to him.  She also kept her emotions bottled up, due to an event from when she was a cop.  She thought she could keep their relationship to just sex, but found that she couldn't.  I really enjoyed the confrontation at the end -- it was a real wake-up call for Blake.
