Review: Nine-Tenths of the Law by L.A. Witt

Nine-Tenths of the Law by L.A. Witt

Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Alternative Romance

Heat Rating: 3



Without trust, common ground can get pretty shaky…

“I believe you have something of mine, Zach.”

Zach Owens doesn’t even know who this angry stranger is, let alone what the man is talking about—until he learns what they have in common. Their boyfriend, Jake. Once Jake’s out of the picture, Zach’s apology to Nathan Forrester leads to a long conversation, a kiss, and a chemistry that goes far beyond revenge sex.
Nathan can’t help but fall for the sexy movie theater owner, but it’s a long way from sheet-tearing sex to mutual trust. And a series of “coincidences” that throws Zach into Jake’s company leaves him unconvinced Zach was the complete innocent in their previous love triangle.

Zach can’t seem to make Nathan believe that Jake is up to something. But protesting his innocence isn’t working, and Jake’s carefully orchestrated campaign to destroy their love could leave them both with nothing…

Warning: Contains explicit male/male revenge sex, sweet sex, angry sex, and make-up sex. Author is not responsible for clothing damage that may result from reading this book.

Clare C's Review

Angry revenge sex has never been more erotic than in the hands of L.A. Witt. Zach and Nathan are two guys who have both been betrayed by the same man. It’s not the best circumstances under which to begin a relationship, but given the sparks that explode between them, it’s not a bad way to meet someone wonderful.

The conflict is simple, but not simplistic. Nathan has trust issues. After what he’s been through, it seems natural he wouldn’t come through it without some serious scarring. It’s this conflict that lends intensity and emotionality to every romantic scene.

I like the way Witt doesn’t shy away from the subtleties of homophobia Zach encounters in his everyday life, from both is business partner and his employees. It’s a very realistic portrayal of something most people ignore, and it enhances the character development, making us love Zach all the more.

Witt’s writing style is friendly and as captivating as the characters she creates. I highly recommend this novel, and l look forward to more from this amazing author.
