Am I falling for my client? I plead the fifth.
The moment Lucy James walks into my office, I know beyond a reasonable doubt that I’m in big trouble.
Exhibit A: The way my heart kicks up a notch every time she looks at me.
Exhibit B: The fierce need I have to help her and her neurodivergent teen brother, even though I’m already swamped and shouldn’t take on another case.
Exhibit C: The fact that I can’t seem to get her off my mind long after she leaves.
Once we sign on the dotted line, a relationship between us could get me disbarred. So even though she appears to be everything I’ve ever wanted in a woman, I know I need to stay far, far away.
But helping Lucy means spending time in each other’s worlds. And now I have a feeling mine will never be the same.
