My Review:
Leather Pants is a fantastic rom-com written in the inimitable style of the wonderful Ms Pamfiloff. I had a stomach ache reading this book because I was laughing so hard. There are some wonderful authors writing in this genre and Mimi is definitely at the top of that list. This is the third book I’ve read of hers and she is an expert at penning uproariously funny stories with witty banter and plenty of hysterical scenes. My husband pretty much hates it when I read one of her books because I can’t hold a proper conversation with him while I’m reading it – I’m snorting with laughter the entire time.

Judge Alma is quite prim and proper until she crosses paths with rocker Colt Young. It was actually quite poetic that both of them were almost the opposite of how they appeared and I wondered if they would be able to find a happy medium that would work for them as a couple.

Initially, I struggled to find Colt sexy because the long-haired leather pant wearing visual just wasn’t doing it for me, and it was a bit too cliche. However, his personality totally won me over and I just pictured him completely differently in my head and it worked! I could kind-of relate to Judge Alma, in a way, and I loved seeing her throw caution to the wind and just going with her gut, although she did end up in a world full of trouble.

The chemistry was electric between our couple even if I did wish there were more sexy times.

Mimi has a fascinating mind and I’m always impressed with the creative aspects of her world building, character and plot development. I loved the idea of the Happy Pants Cafe and Luci was a howl. I also enjoyed the other secondary characters and they were decently developed too.

The writing and pacing are bang on and it was a thoroughly entertaining read. Highly recommended. Go check it out.

As an aside, I haven’t read the first book although I have it on my kindle but you can completely read this as a standalone and not miss a thing.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC as supplied by the author’s assistant. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
