Gabrielle and Braden have fallen in love and face a bright future together if they can just survive all of the crazy people they encounter, like anonymous napkin droppers, UFO enthusiasts, crooked businessmen, nude drunk drivers, and a woman who tries to break into jail. When the gavel falls will the verdict be happily ever after?
Come join the fun as the sexiest couple in the Philadelphia Criminal Court System shares more witty banter and red hot lovin’ with a dash of mystery thrown in. The story that began with The Law of Attraction concludes with lots of love and laughter in The Home Court Advantage.
I liked The Home Court Advantage, for me it was missing something. I love Silber's writing style and the humor she incorporates into her books. I think that it just felt forced in some parts, and don't get me wrong, I love a good smexy scene, but not when they are there to fill up space. In The Law of Attraction there was a good amount of back and forth, some angst, swoony moments and a whole lot of snark. I think my hopes were just too high. I love the idea of Lawyers in love, and the fact that Silber keeps the topic light and funny.
Gabi is still receiving threatening letters and feels someone is watching her. Braden was still sexy and charming. The supporting characters were there to lend a hand when needed. The mystery of the stalker is solved and that was it overall. I would have liked a bit more in the story.
I will say that, though this book fell a bit sort of my expectations, I am still a fan of Silber's writing, and plan on/can't wait for Adam and Lily's story!!

Once upon a time … N.M. Silber was a criminal defense attorney who got up each morning, donned her power suit and sensible pumps, downed a gallon of coffee and set out to “fight the good fight” while trying to not go insane. Having a dark sense of humor and a sarcastic wit helped — a lot. Another thing that helped was reading. As escapism was the goal, she liked to read romance novels, especially really funny ones and really sexy ones. Then one day something beautiful happened — she read one that was both funny and sexy at the same time. She hung up her power suit, put away her sensible pumps and moved her coffee mug to her computer. Now she writes funny and smutty romance novels herself and she lives happily ever after.
