After sneaking away from the party and falling asleep in an unoccupied room, she wakes to the sexiest pair of eyes she’s ever seen.

Every prince is looking for his sleeping beauty to kiss…
Jared Redmond used to be the ultimate bad boy. But now his legal career is taking off and the partners of his firm are trusting him with high-dollar real estate transactions. Jared’s king-size bed is empty. But when he arrives home on Halloween to find a princess sleeping in his bed – his all work and no play attitude goes out the window. There’s nothing he wants more than to explore the hidden desires of this mysterious beauty and show her just how much of a bad boy he really is by fulfilling her every fantasy.
When midnight strikes and coaches turn to pumpkins…
Underneath the glitter of this fairy tale romance, Felicity and Jared might have found true love. But the mounting pressure of their real lives takes hold again and Jared and Felicity are pulled further and further apart. Can they find their fairy tale ending or will they be left with the dying embers of what could have been?
The cover of this book was my single reason for wanting to read this book. A guy in a white shirt does it for me EVERY TIME, so I was salivating over the cover and barely registered the synopsis. And it was a good way for me to sample Ms. Smith’s writing for the first time.
LEGALLY CHARMING is a cute, entertaining and sweet take on the classic fairy-tales and for me it was an easy read with little drama, not the kind that blow your socks off but more the kind that is intended to be uncomplicated and lighthearted.
Jared Redmond is a workaholic focused on becoming a partner at his law firm but one look at Felicity Hart sleeping in his bed and for the first time in while he finds himself fascinated by something other than work. Felicity is not his usual type of woman but the attraction between them is undeniable and Jared finds himself acting out of character in a bid to make her his.
Jared is the ultimate Prince Charming, willing to give his lady whatever her her desires, very supportive, very patient, very accommodating. Felicity is driven and ambitious, but also lacking in self-confidence and cannot believe that a man like Jared could ever want her and Jared faces a challenge convincing her otherwise.
Jared and Felicity are certainly not lacking in chemistry between them, but can they withstand the hard knocks from reality in the form of ambition and pressure and responsibilities?
I certainly had some issues with this story, especially with Felicity and her wishy-washy ways but overall, the story had its moments and also had lots of fun characters. This would be a good book to relax with for a lazy weekend.
