Blurb:

Chicago assistant state’s attorney Zac Hennings just got handed a political hot potato: keeping the convicted murderer in a high-profile case behind bars. He’s up against his most formidable–and alluring–adversary. First-year law student Emma Sinclair is passionately fighting to free her brother. But she needs the take-no-prisoners prosecutor’s help.

Caught between attraction and letting a killer go free, Zac walks a tightrope. Until evidence surfaces that the real culprit’s still out there. With his career and Emma’s life on the line, Zac races to right a terrible wrong. Refusing to back down, he’ll bring a cunning lawbreaker to justice–or die trying.

Review:

A thoroughly enjoyable read! It was fast-paced and hard to put down, with a nice blend of suspense and romance. I didn’t have a clue whodunnit until it was revealed, which was a nice change….

I loved the characters–not just Emma and Zac, but Zac’s sister/Emma’s lawyer Penny too–they were so much fun to read. The sibling dynamics were especially well-written between both sets of siblings, though Emma and Brian’s were understandably a bit more bittersweet throughout the book. The chemistry between Emma and Zac? Fantastic!

There was one thing the characters did that bothered me–there could have been major and far-reaching consequences. Zac did own up to it, though, which made me feel a bit better, but still…it was a huge risk. I felt it could have been fun, to draw it out more–though the timeline of the book wouldn’t have allowed such a scene later on, so I guess I can forgive them. This time. 😉

The ending felt a bit rushed, but not enough to affect my enjoyment of the book as a whole. I turned off the ereader with a smile on my face. How about a sequel? Penny needs her own story, I think 😉

Rating: B+ / 4 stars

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
