Book of the Week: The Law of Attraction by Jay Northcote #Review

Author: Jay Northcote
Publisher: Jaybird Press
Publication date: February 5, 2016
Length: 173 pages


When a professional relationship turns personal, it’s impossible to resist the law of attraction.

Alec Rowland is a high-flying lawyer in a London firm whose career is his life. He doesn’t have time for relationships and his sexuality is a closely guarded secret. After picking up a cute guy on a Friday night, Alec’s world is rocked to its foundations when his one night stand shows up in the office on Monday morning—as the new temp on his team.

Ed Piper is desperate to prove himself in his new job. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by a crush on his boss. It’s hard to ignore the attraction he feels, even though Alec’s a difficult bastard to work for.

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.


When you read the first chapter of a book and want to cry because you know it’s going to be everything you have been craving, it’s a win for the week! I truly adored this book. It’s one of my most favorite tropes. Alec is a lawyer in a very prestigious firm, Ed is his temp. They sleep together before meeting and then DO meet and… yeah. It’s so freaking awesome!
Alec, he projects some jerkiness, but his upbringing, his past, and yeah a bit of a life of his own making has made him what he is today. Fear is a great motivator as they say and his whole life he feared coming out. Only when he’s faced with losing something or should I say someone does the fear change.
Ed, is FANTASTIC!! He of course had a different upbringing than Alec and he is proud of who he is. He’s the best thing to ever happen to Alec.
This story had me teary and excited. I never wanted it to end and wish there was like a million more pages of these two.
Jay Northcote has written a wonderful story. A love story. Every facet of Ed and Alec was emotional and poetic and you just get lost in them
This is a refreshing and breathtaking tale!
