STORY-LINE THE OPPOSITION:
The Opposition is an intense legal drama in civil court, but also an excellent romance. Sophia Grant, up and coming lawyer with a large Chicago firm, finds herself presenting her best friend Michael in a five million dollar lawsuit. Michael, a talented engineer, accused of selling trade secrets, is beside himself. Brilliant, yet nerdy, Michael and Sam set out to prove his innocence.
Opposing counsel in the case, Sam Hayes, is handsome, quiet, smart, sincere, and just plain yummy. Sophia and Sam have an instant attraction which grows as they each work for their clients in this suit. Ethically they cannot be more than friends, yet, the lure steams in the background.
Grab a comfortable seat, my contemporary women’s fiction book reviews of The Opposition follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Firstly, let me say, I enjoyed this legal romance story. Following the case from start to finish was enlightening as the reader gets a close up look at the civil legal system. Character driven, the story’s unique and will appeal to anyone who enjoys a romance with substance.
Secondly, author Alicia Bryant included twists and turns in the plotting. I was not expecting the final unexpected twist and revelation. The pacing of the story was in line with the length of the story and did not lag or bog down.
Bryant gives the reader a look at lawyers as ordinary people rather than the poor image society has of them. Usually seen as just this side of legal and out for themselves, Bryant paints a different picture. One of principles, character, and giving. I enjoyed this interruption as I have many lawyer friends; they are great upstanding concerned citizens with values and beliefs.
Bryant included a variety of characters and developed their personalities to their fullest. The attraction between Sam and Sophia plays a large part in this novel. The secondary characters added much to this story, some you will love and others you will love to hate. Finally, in concluding my contemporary women’s fiction book reviews of The Opposition, I found a solid story-line which was refreshing and well-written. The Opposition is a clean book which did not rely on sex to sell the story. I would not hesitate to buy this book for my self or a friend.
THE OPPOSITION RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4
Also, I found The Opposition suitable for anyone who enjoys a well-written story. I look forward to more works by Alicia Bryant.
