GR's Summary:

In the second book in the Love Under the Big Sky series from this USA TODAY bestselling author of the With Me in Seattle series, life in Montana gets spicy when a woman and her divorce lawyer sign off the papers—and sign on to love. 

Now that his best friend, Josh, has happily settled down with his true love on a Montana ranch, small-town lawyer Ty Sullivan starts thinking that maybe single life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And when Lauren Cunningham’s no-good ex-husband comes after her for an unexpected trust fund, Ty steps in to protect her. But soon he can’t help but think of her as more than a client. Lauren’s in no mood to jump into another relationship, so how can Ty convince her that her mistake wasn’t getting married, but marrying the wrong guy?

My Review on Loving Cara Here

My Thoughts:

Seducing Lauren was a wonderful and romantic read.  It was such a pleasure, and I enjoyed it significantly more than, Loving Cara.  This story was really well-developed, fast-paced, swoon-worthy, and steamy!!!  Seducing Lauren was Josh's best friend, Ty's story, and the beautiful, well-off, and down to earth, Lauren (Lo).  Each of the stories in the series can be read as stand-alone's, but share core characters.

In Seducing Lauren, Lo is dealing with a difficult time is her life.  Her divorce from a gold-digging, manipulative, ruthless, and at times abusive man, has just been finalized.  However, he has found out about a trust fund that she came in to once her parents died.  He is suing her for what he feels is his rightful share of the money.  Lo would give him the money, but on principle she decides to fight him in court.  After all, she found out that he cheated on her throughout their whole marriage, never loved her, and just used her for her money.  Lauren tries to hire Ty for her lawsuit, because she feels that her current lawyer isn't doing a good enough job.  However, Ty let's her know that it would be a conflict of interest, because he has feelings for her.  He decides to help her lawyer with the case, and after he lets Lo know how he feels, he is determined to date her, and make her his!

I absolutely loved Ty and Lo.  Ty was a modern day, "Knight and Shinning Armor." He was loyal, protective, and such a sexy man!!!  These two had a scorching hot chemistry, and were a perfect match.  They always had a friendship, although they were more like aquaintances.  I loved watching their friendship and relationship develop and blossom in to a beautiful love.

It was great to be reunited with characters from Loving Cara.  Cara, Josh, Jillian, Zach, and Seth make for an entertaining and enjoyable cast of secondary characters.  I feel like I get to know characters on a much deeper level when they cross-over in to the various stories in a series!  It was fun watching Lo and Cara's friendship grow.  I cannot wait for, the next book in the series, Falling For Jillian, to come out!!!  Jillian is such a wonderful character, and she deserves a "Happily Ever After!"  I give Seducing Lauren 4 "Tylicious," Romantic, "Forever Kind of Love," Filled Stars!!!
