Title: Enticing the Enemy
Jules Court, author of Hot in the City, returns with a brand-new contemporary romance novella full of sparkling wit and personality
Defense attorney Erin Rafferty has to be tougher than her male colleagues to prove herself in the courtroom. A pit bull in a teacup-poodle package, her hard-earned hard-ass persona isn't easily undone. But one man has proved himself capable.
Rugged, tattooed Detective Cruz is honest, solid—and his testimony on a past case devastated Erin’s career. When a blind date has their paths crossing again, she has no intention of consorting with the enemy, even if her loss wasn't entirely his fault. Then she gets close enough to him to feel the sparks, and even Erin can't bring herself to object.
Undercover cop Daniel Cruz never dreamed he’d see that sexy lawyer ever again. She’s just the shot of adrenaline he needs after being lost and alone too long in a job that's beginning to get the best of him. However, getting the cautious Erin to trust in something more than a series of hot trysts isn’t easy. And with a new case threatening to put them right back where they started, this time their future together could be on trial, too.

Enticing the Enemy is a rather quick read about two “enemies” undeniable attraction to one another and ultimately finding love. Erin is a defense attorney and Danny is a cop and both are under the gun at their jobs. Erin is working herself to death to make partner but she’s so under appreciated. Danny is just trying to fit in after a long stint in deep under cover. They were at odds with each other through work connections. How they started running into each other outside of work, was totally believable.
When these two clash- fireworks! It was very unexpected to them both and it literally felt like the earth moved for them. So caught up in their own crap, they both forgot to actually live-or at least try! I liked how they were spicy with each other and how being around one another opened their eyes to everything they were missing. The enemies to lovers was a premise I liked, but it didn’t flow real well in parts. The ending really didn’t feel resolved in my eyes. I think an epilogue would’ve worked well here. Seeing them even six months later would’ve cemented everything for me.
