A fast-paced contemporary romance that sizzles from the New York Times bestselling author of Order of Protection where passion for the law isn't the only thing heating up the courtroom.
Isla Shayne knows she's in over her head. As former all-star linebacker Trey Adams's personal lawyer, she's used to handling his business dealings and private financial matters, not murder charges. She needs to find an experienced criminal attorney who speaks her client's language. David Cormack of Garrison, Cormack and Lawless is exactly what she needs in the courtroom--and the only man she wants in the bedroom.
For David, taking on the Adams case means diving back into a world he thought he'd left behind and colliding head on with tragic possibilities he's in no mood to face. There's a reason professional football is in his past and no matter how close Isla gets to the truth he intends to leave it there.
But long days working on the case together lead to hot nights in each other's arms. As their feelings grow, the case takes a deadly twist that could change the game between the two lovers forever.
Really awesome read. But if you have someone you care about who is struggling with memory issues, this book is hard to read.
Oh, I love a good mystery, a good legal drama, a wonderful love story, fascinating characters, snappy dialog, humor, and yes heat! This book has it all. Highly recommended. You can’t go wrong with Lexi Blake, she always delivers a good read. It’s great how she works in characters from other series (love those Taggarts!) It’s like keeping up with family.
I am hoping we get a story with Noah and Margarita next.
