    3.5 Stars. Not one of my favorite Taite books, but I did enjoy the read. I?m a fan of Taite?s books. The way she writes is comfortable and I like her subject matter. Most of her books are court dramas that have a little excitement and romance. This book fits that bill and the only ...

    Love?s Verdict is a decent courtroom/mystery drama slash romance. Carsen Taite knows her subject matter and the legal part of the story runs like a well-oiled machine, however, the ?mystery? part was anything but. I spotted the bad guy early on so the twists where not that shocki...

    This book develops a good judicial plot, with a side conflict between the two protagonists, who must be both partners in the defense of a man accused of murder and competitors for a position of partnership in the law firm for which they work. They do not go from hatred to love, as ...

    Love?s Verdict is a really good legal drama with mystery, suspense and romance all rolled into one. Carly is a fifth year associate with one of the most prestigious criminal law firms in Dallas. She?s meticulous, hard-working and ridiculously smart but isn?t particularly outgoing...

    Carsen Taite always delivers a great read. She is consistent in giving you a lot of legal drama with characters who are insightful, well thought out and noteworthy chemistry. You know when you pick up one of her books you are getting your money's worth time and time again. Love?s Ver...

    Personally, I'm a fan of not only legal romances, but especially rivals to lovers novels. This one was a no-brainer for me to pick up. Unfortunately, I found it to be a tad predictable, but still a great read! It's obvious that Taite knows and understands the legal system in her nov...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review I am a huge fan of legal dramas, be it in the form of TV shows, books or movies. I find the way the lawyers go about their job so diligently is truly impressive. And when I got to know that this boo...

    This was a very entertaining read. I?m a fan of Carsen Taite?s books because she always delivers a good thriller and law scenes and terminology. Both Landon and Carly are very likable characters and both of them have their own quirks for which you?ll like them or dislike them - I...

    This was an educational legal thriller with an intriguing plot. Pretty much every time I read a story by this author, I learn something about the law. Which in my opinion, is a good thing. To some extent the story was predictable which was okay because the characters were fascinating w...

    Carsen Taite has done it again. She has given us a book that once I got started I hated to put down. We have defense attorneys Carly Pachett who had to work hard to get where she is. She?s smart but likes to stay in the background doing the research necessary to give her clients the ...

    This is my favorite book by Carsen Taite. I loved the two characters Landon and Carly who complimented each other perfectly. I do love a romance based on opposites attract. Landon being the sociable and likable character compared to Carly who struggled socially and focused on data and ...

    From the first page to the last page, Carsen Taite provided the reader with an intriguing plot and characters to match. Her latest novel, Love?s Verdict, highlighted a high profile court case which featured a star Dallas football player accused of murder. Lawyers Landon and Carly, wh...

    As always, I enjoyed the characters and story. Carsen Taite is one of my favorite authors for a reason. :) ...

    I found this book very interesting because of its balance between romance and the judicial part. Even if the judicial part is a bit bland and predictable the romance between Landon and Carly is, especially at the beginning, full of truculent dialogues. Carsen Taite is the mistress in t...

    The plot was pretty dry, despite being a book that follows a murder as a subplot. It even has one of my favourite tropes: the I Realised I Was Bi Because of You. It was way too slow, and I easily lost interest in it unfortunately. Definitely not for me ...

    I liked this, but sadly the last 20% or so didn?t live up to what came before. There was an attempt at mystery here, but it seemed pretty obvious ?who done it,? and why. I was hoping there was more to it that would surprise me, but there wasn?t. That led to a pretty anticlimact...

    Carly and Landon are both lawyers in their fifth year, both hoping to become partner in the next year. Quiet Carly is from the Dallas firm and sociable Landon is from the Austin firm. Their boss puts them on a case together, defending an NFL player accused of murder, and promises only ...

    This is my favorite of Taite?s books so far. Though I should mention that I listened to it and the narrator was clearly trying to do her best American accent but struggled the whole way through. The characters were believable and I could see how they change one another slightly, but ...

    Really enjoyed this, and the audiobook performer, Nicola Victorica Vincent, is magic as always. More thorough review to come... ...

    A nicely paced and accomplished romance. It was easy to spot whodunnit early on, but that didn?t detract from the story due to the quality of the writing. The legal details were absorbing and balanced well with the burgeoning love affair between the two main characters. A good holida...

    I'd not read any of Taite's books before, but I do love a good queer lawyers story, so I was excited to jump into this one. And I was happy with how central the legal elements of the story were. Landon and Carly are working a case together, and they are genuinely working on that case. ...

    I love Carsen Taite?s work. Her latest is no exception. This is a entertaining story with strong characters. Great read. ...

    Solid story but totally predictable. I liked both characters though (especially Landon) and I was rooting for them since the beginning. What surprised me positively is that this book was not like most of Carsen's books (legal drama with a small part of romance). This time she dedicated...

    Two attorneys, one partnership slot, and a manipulative boss who claims they will make a decision after a high-profile case. Landon and Carly both want the promotion, both know they deserve it, but desperately don?t want to work together in some forced test to see who is best. A roma...

    3.5 stars. This is an easy to read lesbian romance with a lot of lawyering and a bit of mystery. The law side of things was very detailed and complex, the plot and the romance a little less so, but I still enjoyed it. However, I really didn?t like Landon at first. I?m not ent...

    Carsen Taite?s latest legal romance/drama, ?Love?s Verdict,? is one of her best, really. Definitely one of me favourites of hers. Great premise, the case was engaging ? sports related (reminds me of OJ!). I love the back-and-forth between the 2 MCs, Carly and Landon, the form...

    3.5 Stars. Not one of my favorite Taite books, but I did enjoy the read. I?m a fan of Taite?s books. The way she writes is comfortable and I like her subject matter. Most of her books are court dramas that have a little excitement and romance. This book fits that bill and the only ...

    Love?s Verdict is a decent courtroom/mystery drama slash romance. Carsen Taite knows her subject matter and the legal part of the story runs like a well-oiled machine, however, the ?mystery? part was anything but. I spotted the bad guy early on so the twists where not that shocki...

    This book develops a good judicial plot, with a side conflict between the two protagonists, who must be both partners in the defense of a man accused of murder and competitors for a position of partnership in the law firm for which they work. They do not go from hatred to love, as ...

    Love?s Verdict is a really good legal drama with mystery, suspense and romance all rolled into one. Carly is a fifth year associate with one of the most prestigious criminal law firms in Dallas. She?s meticulous, hard-working and ridiculously smart but isn?t particularly outgoing...

    Carsen Taite has done it again. She has given us a book that once I got started I hated to put down. We have defense attorneys Carly Pachett who had to work hard to get where she is. She?s smart but likes to stay in the background doing the research necessary to give her clients the ...

    This is my favorite book by Carsen Taite. I loved the two characters Landon and Carly who complimented each other perfectly. I do love a romance based on opposites attract. Landon being the sociable and likable character compared to Carly who struggled socially and focused on data and ...

    From the first page to the last page, Carsen Taite provided the reader with an intriguing plot and characters to match. Her latest novel, Love?s Verdict, highlighted a high profile court case which featured a star Dallas football player accused of murder. Lawyers Landon and Carly, wh...

    The plot was pretty dry, despite being a book that follows a murder as a subplot. It even has one of my favourite tropes: the I Realised I Was Bi Because of You. It was way too slow, and I easily lost interest in it unfortunately. Definitely not for me ...

    I liked this, but sadly the last 20% or so didn?t live up to what came before. There was an attempt at mystery here, but it seemed pretty obvious ?who done it,? and why. I was hoping there was more to it that would surprise me, but there wasn?t. That led to a pretty anticlimact...

    Carly and Landon are both lawyers in their fifth year, both hoping to become partner in the next year. Quiet Carly is from the Dallas firm and sociable Landon is from the Austin firm. Their boss puts them on a case together, defending an NFL player accused of murder, and promises only ...

    This is my favorite of Taite?s books so far. Though I should mention that I listened to it and the narrator was clearly trying to do her best American accent but struggled the whole way through. The characters were believable and I could see how they change one another slightly, but ...

    A nicely paced and accomplished romance. It was easy to spot whodunnit early on, but that didn?t detract from the story due to the quality of the writing. The legal details were absorbing and balanced well with the burgeoning love affair between the two main characters. A good holida...

    I'd not read any of Taite's books before, but I do love a good queer lawyers story, so I was excited to jump into this one. And I was happy with how central the legal elements of the story were. Landon and Carly are working a case together, and they are genuinely working on that case. ...

    I love Carsen Taite?s work. Her latest is no exception. This is a entertaining story with strong characters. Great read. ...

    Solid story but totally predictable. I liked both characters though (especially Landon) and I was rooting for them since the beginning. What surprised me positively is that this book was not like most of Carsen's books (legal drama with a small part of romance). This time she dedicated...

    Two attorneys, one partnership slot, and a manipulative boss who claims they will make a decision after a high-profile case. Landon and Carly both want the promotion, both know they deserve it, but desperately don?t want to work together in some forced test to see who is best. A roma...

    Personally, I'm a fan of not only legal romances, but especially rivals to lovers novels. This one was a no-brainer for me to pick up. Unfortunately, I found it to be a tad predictable, but still a great read! It's obvious that Taite knows and understands the legal system in her nov...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review I am a huge fan of legal dramas, be it in the form of TV shows, books or movies. I find the way the lawyers go about their job so diligently is truly impressive. And when I got to know that this boo...

    This was a very entertaining read. I?m a fan of Carsen Taite?s books because she always delivers a good thriller and law scenes and terminology. Both Landon and Carly are very likable characters and both of them have their own quirks for which you?ll like them or dislike them - I...

    This was an educational legal thriller with an intriguing plot. Pretty much every time I read a story by this author, I learn something about the law. Which in my opinion, is a good thing. To some extent the story was predictable which was okay because the characters were fascinating w...

    Carsen Taite has done it again. She has given us a book that once I got started I hated to put down. We have defense attorneys Carly Pachett who had to work hard to get where she is. She?s smart but likes to stay in the background doing the research necessary to give her clients the ...

    This is my favorite book by Carsen Taite. I loved the two characters Landon and Carly who complimented each other perfectly. I do love a romance based on opposites attract. Landon being the sociable and likable character compared to Carly who struggled socially and focused on data and ...

    From the first page to the last page, Carsen Taite provided the reader with an intriguing plot and characters to match. Her latest novel, Love?s Verdict, highlighted a high profile court case which featured a star Dallas football player accused of murder. Lawyers Landon and Carly, wh...

    As always, I enjoyed the characters and story. Carsen Taite is one of my favorite authors for a reason. :) ...

    I found this book very interesting because of its balance between romance and the judicial part. Even if the judicial part is a bit bland and predictable the romance between Landon and Carly is, especially at the beginning, full of truculent dialogues. Carsen Taite is the mistress in t...

    The plot was pretty dry, despite being a book that follows a murder as a subplot. It even has one of my favourite tropes: the I Realised I Was Bi Because of You. It was way too slow, and I easily lost interest in it unfortunately. Definitely not for me ...

    Personally, I'm a fan of not only legal romances, but especially rivals to lovers novels. This one was a no-brainer for me to pick up. Unfortunately, I found it to be a tad predictable, but still a great read! It's obvious that Taite knows and understands the legal system in her nov...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review I am a huge fan of legal dramas, be it in the form of TV shows, books or movies. I find the way the lawyers go about their job so diligently is truly impressive. And when I got to know that this boo...

    This was a very entertaining read. I?m a fan of Carsen Taite?s books because she always delivers a good thriller and law scenes and terminology. Both Landon and Carly are very likable characters and both of them have their own quirks for which you?ll like them or dislike them - I...

    This was an educational legal thriller with an intriguing plot. Pretty much every time I read a story by this author, I learn something about the law. Which in my opinion, is a good thing. To some extent the story was predictable which was okay because the characters were fascinating w...

    Carsen Taite has done it again. She has given us a book that once I got started I hated to put down. We have defense attorneys Carly Pachett who had to work hard to get where she is. She?s smart but likes to stay in the background doing the research necessary to give her clients the ...

    This is my favorite book by Carsen Taite. I loved the two characters Landon and Carly who complimented each other perfectly. I do love a romance based on opposites attract. Landon being the sociable and likable character compared to Carly who struggled socially and focused on data and ...

    From the first page to the last page, Carsen Taite provided the reader with an intriguing plot and characters to match. Her latest novel, Love?s Verdict, highlighted a high profile court case which featured a star Dallas football player accused of murder. Lawyers Landon and Carly, wh...

    Carsen Taite?s latest legal romance/drama, ?Love?s Verdict,? is one of her best, really. Definitely one of me favourites of hers. Great premise, the case was engaging ? sports related (reminds me of OJ!). I love the back-and-forth between the 2 MCs, Carly and Landon, the form...
