Review: Laying Down the Law by Delilah Devlin

Laying Down the Law by Delilah DevlinI’m going to judge this book solely for what it is – 100 pages of a dirty good time between two people who were once in love when they were teenagers. It’s 100 pages, does it need to be complicated? Does it need some big twisty-turny plot? Of course not. So I’m throwing all my nitpicking to the side and saying simply that in the end I enjoyed this hot little read.

Zuri and Colt (extra points for the name) were once teenagers in love. Zuri came from the wrong side of the tracks and Colt’s family wasn’t exactly approving of their relationship. They graduated high school and Zuri took off after a misunderstanding by both Zuri and Colt. Colt never forgot Zuri. Colt’s now the Sheriff and Zuri’s on the run from something. Can she be trusted? Colt’s not sure but that doesn’t stop him from making her sleep in his bed and doing smutty dirty things to her. Things both Zuri and I very much enjoyed, if I do say so myself.

This story obviously wouldn’t have worked if Zuri and Colt didn’t already have a previous relationship with each other. So that was smart of Delilah Devlin to have that be the premise. It’s 100 pages and there’s lots of sex, someone’s trying to kill Zuri, Colt has some overprotective brothers to deal with (and I can’t wait to read about in the future) , and we need a HEA.

It all gets tied up nice and neat and at the end I found myself  thinking it was a nice little sexy escape for a few hours.

    I like smutty, dirty things all wrapped up in a sexy, fast read. I’ll have to add to my ever growing TBR list.
