Legally Binding by Sophie Snow | Book Review

[AD/gifted: I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.]

Genre: 🌢️ Romance
Publication date: 13th Feb 2024
My rating: 5/5

Blurb:
She's half his age. He's her boss and everything she shouldn’t want. One night together to get it out of their systems can’t hurt... right?

After shocking her loved ones by ending her long-term relationship, Maggie Burlington is determined to prove that she can do it all on her own. But juggling a monster house renovation, her parents’ failing business, and her job as personal assistant to the illustrious Calahan Michaelson leaves Maggie with little time for a personal life, let alone romance—not that she’s looking for one.

Like his assistant, Cal couldn’t be less interested in romance. He’s been there, done that, and if Maggie’s face sometimes flashes through his head as he’s drifting off to sleep, then surely it’s just because they spend so much time together. Though, there is the matter of that accidental sex club meeting…

When a night stranded in the office due to bad weather brings Maggie and Cal closer, Maggie must decide if proving she can make it on her own is worth losing the one person who makes her feel less alone.

Review:
I absolutely ADORED The Rule Of Three by the same author, so imagine my excitement at being chosen to receive an ARC copy of Legally Binding! This book honestly felt like perfection.

Maggie Burlington is the 27-year-old assistant to lawyer Cal Michaelson who is 28 years her senior. She has always had a bit of a thing for him but that's all it was, a work crush.

After an unexpected meeting at a sex club, it feels like they have officially crossed a line even though nothing actually happened between them. They eventually agree on just one night to get it out of their systems but they both end up deeper than they ever expected.

I loved this book so much. Cal and Maggie both had so much depth to their characters and I just adored them. From Maggie's treatment by her family and ex-boyfriend to Cal's divorce and family, it was all developed so well. You really get a feel for both of their personalities and their character growth both separately and together was beautiful to read.

This isn't the first age gap romance novel I've read but it is probably one of my favourites. The romance was obviously a main part of the book but I really liked that the work aspects weren't glossed over and it added to my overall enjoyment of the novel.

I loved that any trial and tribulations or worries that they experienced felt real. I spent a lot of the book internally saying "aww! πŸ₯Ή" at Cal's actions. Men written by women πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

If you are looking for a spicy, age gap, boss/employee romance that has a great plot to boot, get this on your TBR!
