Treat yourself to a sizzling romance with Liz Ellyn's Overruling Judgment. Sasha Smirnova is an ambitious attorney at one of Chicago's most eminent law firms. After being put to work on a case with Ian O'Malley, someone with whom Sasha had a passionate one-night stand months ago, they were determined to keep things professional, as both have ambitions to become partners at the firm. Meanwhile, Sasha begins a romance with her ruggedly handsome art teacher JD, an ex-hockey player whose career ended abruptly. However, unbeknownst to Sasha, Ian and JD are brothers. Things get complicated when the two brothers realize they have feelings for the same woman. They come up with an unconventional solution that just might make everyone happy, but will it work?

Laced with erotic thrills, romance, humor, and drama, Overruling Judgment is the book for anyone looking for a blazing contemporary romance novel. Liz Ellyn weaves an engaging tale centered on a love triangle where all three participants are charming and compelling in their distinct ways. Ellyn maintains a brisk pace with the plot, which makes the book a breeze to read. Sasha, Ian, and JD have palpable chemistry, and their relationship dynamic provides the narrative thrust for the story. Each intimate scene involving the three is permeated with sexual tension and intrigue, and you can't help rooting for them to end up together. I was also pleasantly surprised by the humor-infused dialogue that made the reading experience all the more enjoyable. Recommended to contemporary romance readers.
