The Law of Attraction by Jay Northcote was a delicious surprise. I adored Ed and Alec, and will no doubt read their story over and over again.
At the beginning of this book, I made a quick judgment about who Alec was and how he would behave in this book and I was so wrong. I loved his hidden depths. I expected him to be stuffy but, really, he was just terrified.
Okay, so my very favoritest part of this book was how much Ed respected himself. When Alec tries to suggest some shadiness, Ed refused to compromise himself. I looooved that. I ‘whoop’ed out loud.
Considering how dirty their first interaction is (*wink wink*), there’s a surprising amount of tenderness between these two. It was absolutely lovely.
I don’t know that any of the secondary characters are really fully fleshed out, but you barely even notice them because of how dynamic Alec and Ed are.
The Law of Attraction was the perfect combination of angst, hot sex, and feeeelings. I adored Ed immediately, but Alec is the one who crept in and stole the show for me. Great job, Jay.

Both men strive to maintain a professional relationship, but tempers fray, passions ignite, and soon they’re both falling hard and fast. If they’re ever going to find a way to be together, Alec needs to be honest about who he really is because Ed won’t go back in the closet for anyone.
