From Goodreads: Security Consultant Vic Andrews lives by his Man Laws: 

Never mess with your best friend’s sister
Never get caught
Never get attached

But he can’t deny his irresistible attraction to Gina Delgado, a young widow with three kids and plenty of strings attached. Even so, having a physical relationship doesn’t mean they’re “in a relationship.”
Gina lost her husband to tragedy; she is not getting emotionally involved with another man in a dangerous profession. Sleeping with Vic is just stress relief. 

Until one of Vic’s assignments goes wrong and the target selects Gina and her kids for revenge. There’s nothing Vic won’t do to protect Gina and the children—the family he realizes, too late, he wants. He’ll accomplish his mission but will he have lost his only chance at true love?

NOTE: I work with a bunch a guys who have man laws, guy rules, and dude guidelines so this book had me in stitches most of the way through. There is one very powerful emotional punch the story throws at you too! A very worthy read!

What I Loved: This book is just an action packed, heart warming, amazingly fun time that is perfect for a summer read. I was laughing so hard every time a man law was “invoked” because you just knew it was going to fall. The fact that Vic was so determined, then not sure, then frustrated, then like “oh what the heck”, and then melted was the perfect arch for a character like him. Gina and her children, specifically Lily, were a great reflection of the struggles that single moms go through while trying to move forward in their lives.

What I Liked: The characters in Man Law where are all very likeable though I kept thinking I missed the first book in the series (there wasn’t one but I think Micheal’s story-Gina’s brother-would have made an excellent book). There was an emotional curve ball thrown that really made me grab for the hankies but it added to the story in a way that was genuine. I really like all the guys and can’t wait to learn more about them.

Complaints: None

Why I gave it a 3.75: This was a very good read that will make you laugh and cry. I look forward to the rest of the series!
