Book One in The Love and Law Series

Author: Blythe Rippon


It’s an open secret that the newest justice on the Supreme Court is a lesbian. So when the Court decides to hear a case about gay marriage, Justice Victoria Willoughby must navigate the press, sway at least one of her conservative colleagues, and confront her own fraught feelings about coming out. ­­

Just when she decides she’s up to the challenge,­­ she learns that the very brilliant, very out Genevieve Fornier will be lead counsel on the case.

Genevieve isn’t sure which is causing her more sleepless nights: the prospect of losing the case, or the thought of who will be sitting on the bench when she argues it.

    I read this whole book in one sitting because it was so amazing and thrilling that I couldn’t put it down. And I mean literally thrilling! The book was so fantastic that it sent real thrills and chills through me at so many moments. Victoria and Genevieve are such a wonderful characters, so real and funny and sometimes heartbreaking. I fell absolutely in love with them! The other main and minor characters were just perfect, and the whole plotline was so satisfying in a way I didn’t know I needed. I laughed aloud, teared up, and at one point screamed in happiness in reaction to events of the novel. After I read it in one morning, I reread it again that night, and then again two days later. I would reread Barring Complications every day if I had time. It’s one of those novels that I wish would go on forever and ever, and I recommend it to absolutely everyone.

    This was one of the first lesbian novels I ever read and was stunned by its quality. Yes I was naive and was totally unaware of the talent that had escaped me to date. The standard of writing is excellent, and the writing style is so fluid you can’t put it down. My dogs will swear under oath on this with their legs crossed. Bad image I know. I’ve reread this book because Blythe Rippon has a second book coming out and I wanted to re – acquaint myself with the characters.

    I was not disappointed. Back then I didn’t leave reviews because why would anyone care. Ok, I was wrong. This book is seriously good with one small exception, the end was kinda rushed. The two lead characters come together after twenty years apart. Just thought there would be more to their ultimate reunion. Also, if your into sex scenes this isn’t for you.

    The author captures you from the first to the last word. There are some remembering moments but they are more for information. They let you understand the two lead characters history. Oh and I loved Douglas and his wise sayings. The sibling banter brought a few good memories too.

    I gave it 5 stars despite being disappointed with the reunion because I felt the book in itself was excellent and really well written. I really enjoyed the book and even started to understand the justice system. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
