I cave in to no one. My hardass exterior is what makes me one of the hottest defense lawyers around. It’s why I’m the perfect guy to defend the notorious Bayou Butcher serial killer – and why I’ll come out on top.
Except this new associate I’ve hired is unnaturally skilled at putting chinks in my well-constructed armor. Her brazen talk and fiery attitude make me want to take control of her and silence her – in ways that will keep both of us busy till dawn. She drives me absolutely 100% crazy, but I need her for this case. I need her in my bed. I need her to let loose the man within me who fights with rage and loves with scorching desire…
I was asked to review this series but started with the second book because the reviews seemed to favor this one over the first book. This book/series was not for me. I had a hard time stomaching the characters and I don’t think I was the right audience for this book.
Caroline is a bit lose with her tongue, especially for being a lawyer. The opening scene has her arguing with her coworkers and not only does it scream unprofessional, she would be fired on the spot if this was real. Plus give a huge sexual harassment lawsuit while getting the door slammed on her way out.
I had a difficult time relating to Caroline’s character. Her mannerisms were extremely immature and like I mentioned, completely inappropriate. I felt like her character lacked a lot of class when it comes to being as educated as a lawyer is.
For example she says, “Yvonne giggled. I wanted to cunt-punt her.”
Wash is a strong alpha who has an immediate connection with Caroline. Despite workplace fraternizations, they have frequent sex. Wash’s character doesn’t have much of a strong personality and overall the emotional connection throughout the entire book was missing. Everything felt artificial.
The sex was hot, demanding and fun. But this plot has been done many times in the past and the book just didn’t stand up to expectations. I felt like character depth was missing as well as the plot being thought out. From the other reviews I have read, you either love this book or you hate it.
