Publisher's Summary

Lawyers and art and kisses, oh my!

As a lawyer for A-list Hollywood actors, Jillian Price's job is soul-sucking, and she needs a way out. She may have found one - at a yard sale. Across a junk-strewn lawn, she spies a painting that makes her heart stop. It looks to be a lost masterpiece! With that painting she could have it all: the new job, her own gallery, and even the guy - gorgeous banker Aero Jantzen.

However, the last person she would expect to start throwing a wrench into her plans is the guy who inspired her to chase the painting in the first place. Keeping a grip on her acquisition might just require a merger.

Mergers & Acquisitions is the third book in Jennifer Griffith's Legally in Love series. Each book is a stand-alone clean romance with a guaranteed HEA, lots of swoony kisses, and a legal twist.

Art, love and blue eyes

4.5 stars. I love to listen to books while cleaning the house or driving but the one drawback is I can't highlight favorite lines or the super swoony parts.

Jillian Price studied art history and loves art, but she's an attorney at a top talent agency in Los Angeles. Jillian's good at her job and is on the fast track, but this job is sucking the life out of her. On the way to a meeting with one of her clients she finds a painting at a yard sale that could be a lost masterpiece. She can't wait to have it looked at by a professional.

One of her main clients, a teenage heartthrob named Ryker, calls for a meeting at an amusement park (it's Ryker's thing so you just have to go with it), where Jilly (that's what Ryker calls her) meets his new agent, the gorgeous Aero Jantzen, who has the bluest eyes she's ever seen. He happens to be an investment banker and gives her the inspiration to open an art gallery if her garage sale find is the real thing. Everytime Jillian mentions how blue Aero's eyes are (and she does that a lot) the chorus from the song Electric Blue by Icehouse, from the 80's, popped into my head.

Jillian realizes her dream of opening a gallery, then Aero suddenly wants the painting that's the main attraction, but he won't tell her why. Jillian doesn't understand but knows this could be the end of their blossoming relationship.

This is my first book by Jennifer Griffith, and I liked Jillian. She was willing to walk away from the security of a high paying job to live her dream. Aero sounded so dreamy and they were so good together. Ryker was hilarious. On the audiobook he sounded like total California surfer dude. Lol

Mergers & Acquisitions is part of the Legally in Love series but each book can read by itself.

I thought the narrator, Janine Granda, did a wonderful job with the different characters and loved her version of Ryker.

Match made by a teenager

This was an enjoyable story. Jullian had a lot going for her, but had a sense of going no where in her life. She went to a yard sale and made a priceless discovery. Jullian is a lawyer and meets up with her teenage client and his new agent, Aero. The sparks flew while floating down the tunnel of love and the kiss that Jullian and Aero were forced to make. Julian left the meeting and pursued her dreams of owning an art gallery. The story had a little mystery that added to the book. The chemistry between Jullian and Aero was electric. The narrator did an excellent job on this book. I enjoyed how she portrayed the characters and kept the plot moving. I recommend this book to those that enjoy romance, art and meddling teenagers.

Recommended

A clean standalone story with an excellent narrator. This story told in first person has a little too much description and thought process/inner dialog for my total enjoyment, hence the lower score. It makes it difficult to put myself in the place of the characters or get lost in the story itself. I think a few descriptive emotional words can convey more.

The overall story was good and the characters interesting.

Completely Enjoyable!

Excellent. Reminiscent of one of my favorite movies - You've Got Mail! Except, instead of our MC owning a children's book store, she opens an art gallery. Whaaaa? Yes! Sign me up.
