Being a divorce attorney for the rich and famous isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Julie Harrison has learned that love doesn’t last, and she’s sworn never to make the same mistakes as her mother, or her clients. She uses the games men play to keep them at a distance. The only man who managed to break down her walls was Luke Walker, a Navy SEAL who loved her and left her, and changed her forever.

When Luke arrives back in New York, running Walker Security with his brothers and having left his Navy SEAL days behind, he sets his sights on Julie, the woman he’s always wanted and couldn’t have. Except, she runs from him every time he gets close.

But now, one of Julie’s clients, a powerful judge, gets involved with a dangerous cartel, and his soon-to-be-ex-wife ends up dead. Julie’s next on the list, and she finds herself on the run from those who believe she knows too much, and counting on Luke to keep her alive. In the deepest, darkest moments of the night, passion will bring them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Can Julie and Luke trust each other and find their happy ending before they find … the end?

My Thoughts

I don’t know how i managed to forget to finish this series – it’s definitely one of my favs – especially since Ms Lisa Renee Jones is a favorite of mine.  So, here we are, back with the hot and sexy Walker brothers, and it’s nice to see that we get to have Luke’s bit of things.  The nice thing here as well is that there’s a history between Luke and Julie – and it’s a history that actually left the door open, so when they reunite again, on delayed flights in chicago, you know that it’s going to be hot.

Where this story takes us is on a roller coaster.  It’s not just wondering if Julie and Luke can make their 2nd chance work, but there’s also a life an death situation because of something that Julie’s been sucked into – through one of her clients.  She’s representing a judge for a divorce case, and things are getting dicey – the wife reveals that there’s something dark and dirty with the art that the judge collects, and then she’s found dead, and we see that there’s so much more to the story than what we originally thought.

A cartel is involved, some mysterious french guys are at the helm, and we don’t know how deep the judge is in, and why now Julie’s being targeted.

The bulk of the story that we have is determining whether Luke will allow Julie to help because she’s able and then of Julie allowing Luke to take control.  In true fashion of our author, we see that there’s some incredibly steamy control happening, both in and out of the bedroom and it’s hot.  i can’t help but get sucked in again and again, just like we did with Royce and Lauren as well as what we see in all her series.

Now i can’t wait to see what comes next with Blake’s 3rd installment since i feel like he’s the one that’s most troubled and finding a potentially happy place for him would bring this series to a great ending point.  So on that note, have a great day all!
