Is there anything better than a TV show or book series that mashes up genres? One of my personal favourites to binge is the legal romantic drama. Think Ally McBeal, Suits or The Good Fight. Each episode following a new high-drama case, but mashed up with intoxicating romantic tensions and inter-office dynamics. Perfection.
Lisa Child’s Legal Lovers series is the perfect mix of these genres, a four-part book series following the exploits of friends and colleagues at a law firm, each with their own romantic misadventure. However, throughout all four books the firm is stalked by a mole attempting to ruin their winning streak in the courtroom. It is VERY sexy, filled with spicy drama and scandals galore.
