About the Book:
For single mom, Bobbie Jo Weston, finding a husband is not on her to-do list. She's focused on turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. She agrees to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills, but she wasn’t counting on the super sexy Seth Landry being that guy.
Seth has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails. As a retired member of The Resistance—an elite group of ex-military soldiers—his dark, unsettling past haunts him. He needs a place to lay low, and an out-of-the-way B&B is nothing short of perfect. The blonde beauty doesn’t trust men, and he doesn't plan on sticking around long enough to change her mind.
The closer they get, the more they can't seem to keep their hands off each other. And while Bobbie holds on to her fear of watching another man walk out of their lives, Seth's mere presence has put them all in jeopardy. The only way to ever be free of his dangerous past is for him to accept one last mission...

My Review:Law of Attraction started off a little rough for me. It sort of dragged at the beginning and I was worried I wasn't going to end up liking it. Oh, how wrong I was. Law of Attraction was enjoyable and had a very interesting and unique-ish story.
Bobbie Jo had a one-night stand and ended up pregnant. The baby daddy? A piece of crap who wants nothing to do with Bobbie or his son. With Bobbie not growing up with a father, she wants to make sure her son has everything he could ever want. However, starting her own bed and breakfast is a lot harder to do on your own. When a friend needs his nephew to stay with her for the summer she agrees if he'll work around the house. No problem right? Except, the moment Bobbie sets eyes on her new housemate, sparks go flying.
I really liked Bobbie Jo and felt like she was always making decisions that were best not just for her but for her son. Sometimes children get put into books and they become a bit of a back burner in the story. That didn't happen in this story at all. I felt like the story really focused on the son's role in both Bobbie's and Seth's life.
I really enjoyed Seth and Bobbie's relationship. They started off with a quick attraction that turned into a lot more over the course of the book. Their relationship didn't feel rushed. I also like that the couple twists in this story didn't follow the usual predictive progression.
Overall, enjoyable story with a unique storyline and characters.
His piercing, impolite eyes flickered over my body before rising to meet my gaze head on. Wordlessly, he grinned again.
My face flushed and my inner muscles contracted at the highly erotic overtones his smile implied. My God, this guy is like a walking vibrator. Only better. He doesn’t require batteries to operate.
But after my unfortunate run-in with Jeremy, I wasn’t feeling particularly interested in doing anything too crazy—and probably totally hot—that I might later come to regret. God, why not? Tamping down my inner resistance, I strengthened my resolve by forcing the firm, unmistakable words out of my mouth. “I’m not going to sleep with you.” Damn. I could almost feel my vagina pouting.
Amusement lit his face. “I don’t recall asking you to.”
Oh. All right. “Sorry. I guess I just thought—”
“Don’t get me wrong. Say the words and I’ll have your panties around your ankles and my dick buried in you so fast, you won’t know if you’re coming or…” His golden eyes glinted, heat smoldering just below the surface. “No, never mind. You’d definitely be coming.”
Holy shit! I think I just did.
His sexually charged words effectively disarmed me, inflaming parts of my body that hadn’t been intimately touched by a man in five long, celibate years. I clenched my thighs together to ease the no longer familiar ache building between them and mentally whimpered. Hot and bothered didn’t even begin to describe it.
He slid my long blond hair gently off my right shoulder and allowed his fingertips to trace lightly across my collarbone before coming to rest on my neck. With the way his eyes darkened with intensity, I had no doubt he detected my erratic pulse pounding beneath my skin. His eyes probed mine thoroughly as if he were waiting for an invitation to take things one step further. “Struggling a bit with your decision? Why don’t I make it a little easier for you?”
“Easier?” I repeated.
“Just one kiss. What do you say?”
“One kiss?” I muttered, parroting him once again.
The amused expression he wore had me questioning his sanity. How the hell did his offer change from screwing me senseless to one simple kiss in the matter of a heartbeat? Not that I planned to accept his first official offer, but a girl does like to keep her options open.
