Love, life…death—a few seconds can change everything.
I’m a criminal defense lawyer determined to build my own firm from the ground up.
My ex, the new prosecutor, complicates things; especially when the animosity between us infects the whole courtroom.
Then I meet Callum—my brother’s friend, a bounty hunter, and the accused in my new case.
The charge—sexual battery.
The supposed victim—a bail jumper he’s been chasing halfway across the country.
My instincts tell me he’s innocent, which I set about proving, but I didn’t expect to fall for him in the process.
Our mutual attraction becomes a tempting complication neither of us can resist.
When a body turns up, Callum and I realize a war is raging around us; and one of us is the target. With an ex-husband eager to take me down, and a woman determined to ruin Callum, we need to figure out who the perpetrator is…before time runs out.
My ARC Review:
This was my first read by Freya, and what a stunner it was, a good story line that was captivating from the start, with two lead characters that were brilliant…
I loved Callum, a big male bounty hunter, a little rough around the edges, but older (45) and more mature, yet decidedly alpha, dominant and sexy, who thought he was going to be a bachelor until he met Reagan.
Reagan is a defence lawyer who has set up on her own to get away from her ex, a slimeball of a prosecutor, who just won’t let her be, and doesn’t like to lose. Reagan is a strong character who knows her stuff, yet is loving and caring to those who know her
Callum is in the office next door to Reagan, they have an instant attraction to each other, something that neither can deny, but then he is accused of a crime he did not commit and Reagan jumps in to help free him.
There are some great twists and turns in the plot that I did not see coming and some hot and steamy scenes between Callum and Reagan, so even though it was a relatively quick read, it was thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining. I am certainly looking forward to reading more from Freya.
