Reviews for Izzy's Law
Smoldering, sexy and sensual, Izzy's Law is a tale of love, loyalty and acceptance.
Meet Izzy, a single mother with a grownup son in his early 20s. Strong, sensible, smart and sexy, as well as completely independent. Daughter of an Irish cop but also part of the Italian mafia from Brooklyn, Izzy is still the princess of the family, dotted on and adored by everyone. It could be because of her courage to brave the world and have her baby at 15, without a husband at her side. But most probably because of her loving and nature and big kind heart.
Happy on her own, Izzy hadn't met a man who really interested her for years. Until the day a kindness done for her future daughter in law sets Izzy face to face with not one but 3 hot young men who somehow manage to wiggle under her skin and completely turn her life upside down.
Within a single week's time, Izzy had three younger men who drove her wild, fighting over her like dogs over a bone. And to her dismay, she finds herself not only enjoying their attention but also craving it. After not even dating for more than a year, let alone having sex, she is downright shocked at her own reaction to not one but three a lot younger men. Totally inappropriate for a woman her age as well as her social and professional status! Especially since their age is closer to that of her own son, while one of them is the brother of her future daughter in law. Completely unacceptable, as far as Izzy's concerned! But then, why does it feel so right?!
When the men themselves suggest sharing and seem set on proving how good it can get, Izzy's resolve slowly crumbles, alongside her doubts and self-judgement. Because their relationship is based on gentleness, caring, respect and love. Any woman's dream and Izzy is getting that times 3! So she starts falling and falls hard for the three hot hunks who make her happier than she had ever been. But she is older and they are young ... and what will the world say?!
Will Izzy's family agree? And how about her son? Or the daughter-in-law when she finds out her brother is dating her fiance's 'mama'?! Judgement and resentment are bound to arise.
How Izzy and her men will stand through it all, I'll leave that for you to find out. But know that stand they will. And their happy ever after is so damn hot and sweet!!! I absolutely loved it!
This book is a steamy hot contemporary reverse harem that will appeal to all reverse harem fans out there. And yet, it is also a heartwarming tale with a strong message.
'You are the heroes of your own stories. Be a light to those who don't yet dare to follow you and give them courage by your example.'
Izzy's Law is a book for women who dare to be different and follow their heart, no matter what. The women stand up for their own happiness and dare to do what makes them happy without regard to what others think of them. It is for those souls who dare to love, even if their love seems inappropriate to others.
Fast-flowing and fun at times, while sizzling at others, Izzy's Law manages to beautifully combine wit and sensuality with steamy hot scenes. And that particular combination turns it into a downright addictive read.
I highly recommend it to all romance lovers out there.
It's sexy, sensual and hot!!
Happy reading everyone
and always remember:
'Dare to be different. But most of all, dare to be happy.'

This book tells a story of love. It doesn't matter how old you are as long as there is caring, protection and deep affection there can be love. Izzy has the unconditional love from her family. They want her to be happy and Manu, Yann and Dante do that for her.

I wasn't sure what a revers Harem was when I picked up the book, but I'm glad I found out. Izzy is living her dream...in the form of hot nights with three amazing men who treat her how every woman wants to be treated. With love, respect and care during the day hours, and as a sex goddess in the evening. I think I read this in one night! I was addicted. I look forward to the next book!

Once again, this author does not disappoint. If you're looking for a sexy hot read, just pick up any one of Tirza's books.
Izzy is a character many of us can identify with and once you read her story, you may wish you had her luck!
Enjoyable story and great characters!
I love it!
I absolutely love this book. It's been long overdue to find a romance novel that combines true storytelling and real love with the milf/cougar trope. Before I only found badly written books with barely legal lovers, which is absolutely not my thing in any constellation, whether the young part is male or female.
I want to read about a real relationship between real adults and Izzy didn't merely provide this, this book ticked all my boxes. It's hot and steamy, real love with a happily ever after for all 4 parties involved, as this is a contemporary reverse harem (yummy!) and the emotional side doesn't come too short, either. There are family issues addressed characters' backgrounds and development are done very well and it is exciting and adventurous without losing its grip on reality. 5 stars all the way! Read it, you won't be disappointed!

Young men and a hot milf? Yes, please.
I liked it! Lots of sexy time, perfect for what it was meant to be.

I couldn’t stop reading this book. The author’s pacing was fantastic. I loved the anticipation and build up. The characters were thrilling and well developed. All in all a great enjoyable read.

Only to find true love, in a manner not quite the norm for most, and thus she had to face family querying and unapproving, standing for what made her happy, for once. She understood who she was, her strength and also what she lacked and wanted. She had to give herself a break and allow herself to experience that which she always created for everyone else-Happiness. Her family had no choice, but to agree that she deserved a share of that, being the gift she was to all of them, in whichever way it came, as long as she was happy.
This was beautiful, encouraging, and clearly intriguing to the end. I cannot wait to start on Tank, her next read in my hands. I am glad that the first of its genre that I read, turned out to be a masterpiece.

Wow! Tirza Schaefer is really coming into her own. Starting with Tank and now this feature novel, she is definitely upping the scales! She dares to write more. More explicit, more emotion, more of everything and it works. This book shows a few prejudices and stereotypes (timely when considering, this novel was released shortly before the "Black Lives Matter" movement was big in the media, also touching on the subject of police brutality but in this novel, the author shows how it can be done differently and how it is possible to heal wounds, make friends and create a new family with the most unlikely members.
This starts with Izzy herself who is a mix of Italian mafia and Irish cop. After an early teenage pregnancy, she raised a son all by herself and then takes in that said son's girfriend's brother who is fresh out of prison. Being the pragmatic and nurturing type, she finds him a job and has her son's old room renovated for her new house guest.
This act of love for her almost-daughter-in-law spins out of control into a series of events that combine heart, love, family loyalty (I'm personally really big on that myself) and lots of steam! But it's not only lots of steam, but it's LOTS of it and it's really loving at the same time. I'd say it's too emotional for me if it didn't work so perfectly that even a hardened guy like me can admit (at least with an incognito alias) can once in a while feel all mushy. Not that I'll ever admit to it in real life. But yeah, Izzy and her men, as well as her amazing friends and loving family grabbed my heart, wrung it out and left me panting in my seat. Okay, under the shower...
Anyway, the book is great from start to finish. And I actually didn't want it to finish, which is why I grabbed Book 2, Ria, of The Milf Diaries right after. And omg... But that'll go in Ria's review...

What a fabulous read! Tirza has done it yet again, with beautifully written characters that make you really care for them! The story is based in New York, Brooklyn, and joins two strong families, Italian American and Irish American.
In a passionate love story, where Izzy, finds her true loves, Dante, Manu, and Yann, despite all the difficulties on their paths to happiness.
A truly uplifting read! Many thanks!
