The Love Wars

9780451416230_LoveWars_CV2.inddEven though Molly Grant has only a handful of relationships behind her, she’s already been through more divorces than she can count.  At the premier Manhattan law firm where she’s a matrimonial attorney, the hours are long, the bosses tyrannical, and the bonuses stratospheric. Her clients are rich, famous, and used to getting their way. Molly’s job—and primary concern in life—is to work as hard as possible to make sure they do. Until she meets the client who changes everything… 

The Love Wars by L. Alison Heller reminded me a little of The Devil Wears Prada – young professional juggling a prestigious job with long hours and an evil boss lady.  However, The Love Wars has more heart and less venom.  Looking for a change of pace without losing her 5-year bonus, Molly Grant transfers to Bacon Payne’s matrimonial department, but demanding clients and pampered bosses were not what she had in mind.  When Molly meets Fern, ex-wife of Bacon Payne’s number-one-must-get-client, Molly does the unthinkable and decides to secretly represent Fern.

A sweet story about a messy business, The Love Wars is an engaging tale of broken relationships, demanding jobs, and unexpected romance.
