A beautiful and emotionally gripping story, Powerless by Lauren Cooper, is the first book in the new series Power.
With an alcoholic/absentee mother, Amelia grew up determined to make her life into something worth living for, and definitely better than the one she was given. Her hard work has finally paid off, and she is now one of the best barristers available and the owner of one of the most reputable law firms.
The story starts off the point where the two law firms of our main characters are on the verge of merging. Our two main characters, Amelia and Liam, both have endured a troubled past and gives their all to their respective law firms.
Both of them stubborn beyond words, they start their new relationship as business partners, hating each other, and making assumptions of one another.
Since I love ‘hate-to-love’ romances, I genuinely enjoyed the banter between the two, and how they unknowingly grew fast feelings for one another especially once they realized how far off they had been with their assumptions of the other. Liam was an ass during the first few chapters, but even then I fell fast and hard for him.
I loved the writing and the overall plot of the story, along with the beautiful connection that grows between Liam and Amelia. Towards the end of the book, I was holding my breath, desperately wanting to know what happens next. It killed me to know that the book ended on such an agonizing cliffhanger. I. Need. To. Know. What. Happens. Next. ASAP!
I really enjoyed the Liam and Amelia’s story and gave it 4/5 stars.
If you are not easily triggered by mentions of rape and abuse, then I highly recommend you pick up Powerless.
