Judge Stephanie Marks wants only one thing in her courtroom besides order: the powerful and irresistible defense attorney, Clayton Jennings. She would give almost anything for him to approach her bench and directly examine every wanting inch of her. Will fantasy alone be enough to get Judge Marks through the trial of the century, or will their desires consume them, forcing them both “out of order”?
Tempting and sweet, Behind the Bench gives us a glance into the naughty side of the legal profession. This book brings to life a fantasy as the reader watches the heated yet covert lust between a judge and the smokin’ hot defense attorney as he passionately tries a case in her courtroom. Giving into their fantasy, these two explore a completely new concept of professional consideration as they let their lust drive them to new heights.
While absolutely tantalizing this short story would be even better if it was expanded to double the length or even novella size. Even though the sex was great, it did seem a little rushed. This supposed to be pure fantasy; I wish the author would have explored her hedonistic side a little more. Allowing the characters to immerse themselves in each other’s bodies more completely would have made the seduction go from slightly hotter than sweet to completely explosive.
Seductive, sweet, tantalizing, and mouthwatering are just a few ways to describe Behind the Bench. Rebecca Leigh wraps the reader into the courtroom atmosphere and entices the reader to trade places with the sultry judge, giving into their every carnal desire. She expertly portrays the “sex on a stick” defense attorney as a mouthwatering example of how naughty and fun the law can really be. This tease of a story is not only sexy but fun as well and well worth the short time it takes to indulge.
