Goodreads:  Breaking up is hard to do. At least the first few times. 

Even though Molly Grant has only a handful of relationships behind her, she’s already been through more divorces than she can count.

At the premier Manhattan law firm where she’s a matrimonial attorney, the hours are long, the bosses tyrannical, and the bonuses stratospheric. Her clients are rich, famous, and used to getting their way. Molly’s job—and primary concern in life—is to work as hard as possible to make sure they do. Until she meets the client who changes everything…. 

Fern Walker is the desperate former wife of a ruthless media mogul. Her powerful ex is slowly pushing her out of her young children’s lives, and she fears losing them forever. Molly—haunted by an incident from her own past—finds herself unable to walk away from Fern and sets out to help her. She just needs to do it without her bosses finding out.

Now, as complications both professional and personal stack up, Molly can only hope that her own wits, heart, and instincts are enough—both in and out of court.



Kritters Thoughts:  Molly Grant has been working hard climbing the ladder at a prestigious law firm in Manhattan when she decides to take a career turn and join the matrimonial group and become essentially a divorce lawyer.  She gets caught up in a case that isn't quite by the books and may jeopardize her full time job and career path; it was fun to read about her get excited about this case even though it may impact her future.

My favorite thing about this book was that it centered around her career and her love life took a back burner to the true plot line of the book.  Most chick lit books make the character's love life the center and I enjoyed this change of pace to have her professional life take center stage.  It was a nice change.

I absolutely devoured and loved this book.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
