The Barrington Brothers are here! Meet Blake…
Trust doesn't come easily to senator's daughter Cadence Payne—especially after her disastrous engagement. Dating is no longer at the top of her to-do list, no matter how persistent fellow attorney Blake Barrington may be. Yet the sexy, notorious lawyer makes a very convincing argument. Cadence is almost tempted to give in…until Blake's implicated in a scandal and hires her to defend him!
Little by little, Blake is getting past Cadence's defenses and giving a whole new meaning to attorney-client privilege. But days and nights spent in close proximity prove dangerously distracting. If Blake loses this case, his career, Cadence's reputation and their romance will all be in jeopardy. Can he convince her to believe in him despite her fears—or is he gambling with his future and her heart?
Very well done!!
So... this was my first Nikki Night read and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The story was so very well written. The emotions were palpable and all over the place.
Take Blake Barrington, intelligent, good looking, wealthy, giving, and with just enough swagger and arrogance to make him bleed sexy. And Cadence Payne, intelligent, beautiful, and local royalty, with just enough self doubt, skittishness, and quietness to go unnoticed. Ironically, I really felt sorry for Blake and tended to side with him as I thought he was the underdog in all this. As smart as Cadence was and as an attorney she didn't practice first rule of a good attorney; innocent until proven guilty (when to hit close to home).
Blake, the Adonis that he was, didn't fare well when he was knocked from his proverbial pedestal legally and personally. Through Blake's persistence, at the end of the day he and Cadence were both convicted of their feelings for each other.
I cannot wait for Hunter's story!! Already preordered!!
