Felicity Hart has one goal: Completing her masters in art. Falling in love isn’t part of the plan. She reluctantly agrees to attend a Halloween party with her best friend. After sneaking away from the party and falling asleep in an unoccupied room, she wakes to the sexiest pair of eyes she’s ever seen. Eyes that belong to the one man who could turn her well organized world upside down. When he flashes that wicked, panty-melting smile at her the vow to not fall in love seems impossible… 



EVERY PRINCE IS LOOKING FOR HIS SLEEPING BEAUTY TO KISS… 



Jared Redmond used to be the ultimate bad boy. But now his legal career is taking off and the partners of his firm are trusting him with high-dollar real estate transactions. Jared’s king-size bed is empty. But when he arrives home on Halloween to find a princess sleeping in his bed – his all work and no play attitude goes out the window. There’s nothing he wants more than to explore the hidden desires of this mysterious beauty and show her just how much of a bad boy he really is by fulfilling her every fantasy. 



WHEN MIDNIGHT STRIKES AND COACHES TURN TO PUMPKINS… 

Underneath the glitter of this fairy tale romance, Felicity and Jared might have found true love. But the mounting pressure of their real lives takes hold again and Jared and Felicity are pulled further and further apart. Can they find their fairy tale ending or will they be left with the dying embers of what could have been? 

My Review

I'm always happy when there is a new Lauren Smith book out, as you probably know, I'm a big fan of her work. Getting my hands on a copy of Legally Charming before it came out, so that I could review it, was fantastic. This is a new contemporary romance and the first in the Ever After series.

This is a lovely story and a nice, quick read. Our hero, Jared isn't sure that he has time for romance, but once he meets Felicity, he soon changes his mind and decides that she's for him. She isn't quite so sure, she's drawn to Jared and finds herself falling for him. With the end of her university course rapidly approaching and her plans to move for her job, Felicity isn't sure that they can have a future together.

The only slight issue I had with this story, was Felicity. She appears to be much younger than she actually is at times and the way that she deals with thing seems a little silly and unfair. I'd have liked to shake her. 

This is  great read and I'd recommend it.
