Reasonable Doubts by Cara Bristol

Reasonable Doubts by Cara Bristol

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t typically like to jump into a series this far along without reading the previous books, but I was assured that Reasonable Doubts could be read as a standalone, so I took a chance on it. Boy am I glad I did because I loved this book. While I may have known a bit more about Liz had I read the previous books, not doing so did not affect my enjoyment of this book at all. I never felt lost when previous incidents were mentioned – at least no more than you would when two of your friends are talking about a situation you weren’t a part of. In all actuality, Ms. Bristol does a great job of providing the pertinent details about past events so that I felt I had an adequate understanding of the events and how they affected Liz and Grant.

Liz is a successful attorney with her own practice. She has a great group of friends and enjoys her life. But as a widow, she misses the Domestic Discipline relationship she had with her husband and his firm hand when she needed it. While it’s been a couple of years since her husband passed, she’s hesitant to enter the dating scene because she needs a partner who is ready to take on the responsibilities of an HoH and not someone she has to train. And yet she finds herself drawn to a man who is clearly not a spanker. Against her better judgment, she agrees to go out with Grant and finds herself willing to help introduce him to the world of DD so that they can spend more time together. Hallelujah!

I loved the interactions and chemistry between Liz and Grant. The two definitely feed off of one another’s energy and attraction and they complement each other immensely. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Grant learn about DD and how his opinions regarding the lifestyle changed as his relationship with Liz progressed. His self-acknowledgement of his inner caveman tendencies proved to both amusing and sexy. Reasonable Doubts was a great book and while it was absolutely enjoyable as a standalone, I do plan to go back and read the earlier books in the series so that I can find out the stories from the motley crew of misfits that made up Liz’s girl posse.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
