Beacon news reporter Lindsey Fox is on the verge of breaking a huge story of political corruption that will make her career and make her famous journalist parents proud—or she could be thrown in jail and fired. It really could go either way.
Her recent streak of bad luck continues when Lindsey finds herself facing a bogus contempt charge—and attorney Ben Gillespie is appointed to get her out of the slammer. They once had a bad date of epic proportions—stilted conversation, food poisoning, burglary, towed car. Then there was the incident with the pepper spray. Lindsey never believed she'd see the sexy lawyer again.
Ben can totally believe that Lindsey is behind bars. The woman is trouble. Now he has to get his new client out of jail, keep her out of the grasp of a crazed bike messenger and a shady P.I., help her save her job, and convince her to put down the pepper spray and give him another chance.
Ellie Ashe never disappoints!
I love anything Ellie Ashe writes, and this new series starring Lindsey Fox is no exception.The author has devised a great legal and financial plot and develops her characters with a great sense of humor, a lot of self-deprecating humor that is an ongoing internal monologue ---- and then throws in a ton of adventure. I'm into the adventure/suspense part more than the romance and this book really has a great balance. I also like that the guy isn't perfect and neither is the main character. I'm going to continue to follow both series --- this one with Lindsey Fox and as well as the Miranda Vaughn series. It never disappoints!
