#Review Balancing Act by Jill Blake

Title: Balancing Act
Author: Jill Blake
Rating: 3 stars

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

This is the first book I've read by Jill Blake. It's the third book in a series, however for the most part it can be read as a standalone. I say for the most part because there were a few times, when in the heroine's point of view, where she would talk about certain characters like the reader was familiar with them. I went back and looked at the other two books and they were the main characters in those books. Being that I hadn't read the other two books, however, it left me scratching my head a little.

Aside from that, I did enjoy Zach and Angie's story. I'm not sure if the author has a background in law or just did her research, but the legal aspects of the book were very believable. The attraction between the two main characters was also believable. They had a history...a family connection.

I did feel that there were parts of the book that moved too fast and could have been developed more. While Zach and Angie had a history, it would have been nice to see some of the interactions between them during their day together rather than a brief description of what happened. Also, I felt this book really should have had an epilogue. It would have given a bit more closure to the story.

Overall, it was a good read. Will I check out the rest of the series? Maybe. While I liked the book, it didn't leave me craving more.

I would recommend this book to readers looking for a romance with a side of courtroom drama.
