The book starts really well with Lucy imagining a dream-scene in which she's being interviewed for Marie Claire and I was immediately drawn into the book. In only takes a few chapters for Mark to be introduced into the book and I loved how quickly Lucy and Mark's romance began. It was like a whirlwind of a romance and I was surprised to see Mark introduced so quickly. Of course, the early introduction of Mark lent itself to a lot of troubles to arise and arise they did; particularly when Lucy is given the chance to work on the case of a lifetime: a high-profile divorce. There were some very clever plot-twists throughout the book and I truly didn't know how it was going to end.
There's a lot of law-type-stuff throughout the book but I found it all easy to follow and quite enjoyable to read about. Spencer must have really done her research on the subject as it really is the focal point to the book. The plot was very unique, using law as a backdrop and I thoroughly enjoyed all of the scenes when the characters were all talking law. There was also a sub-plot running throughout the book in which someone within the law firm where Hez works and the barristers where Lucy works is leaking confidential documents to the press about the high profile divorce case. I thought I had one of the characters pegged for the leaks but I was proved wrong, as is usually the case.
Tug of Love is a very enjoyable read and Allie Spencer is a very talented writer. The book was very absorbing and I found it very difficult to put down. My only fault with the book was the fact the main character was called Lucy. There are so many Lucy's in chick lit books it's unreal and they all seem to be morphing together to form one big massive Lucy! Bar that, though, it's an outstanding read and Spencer is a fab writer. I can't wait for her next book!
