One and done. It was supposed to be one night. I knew his type. You don’t fall in love with a man like Reese Summer, but I did. He swept me off my feet, seduced me, refused to take no for an answer. We became a power couple. The syndicated crime reporter. One of the country’s top criminal attorneys. The fantasy became happily ever after until the next big trial of the century. Reese is defending a woman accused of killing her father for billions. I’m reporting on the case. And then the world around us explodes. The trial turns to danger right as a secret from Reese’s past shocks me. Someone who wants to destroy our happily ever after. Someone wants to end me.
I love Reese and Cat, the way that their relationship started carries through to where they are now. It’s clear that they have a strong relationship that was based on attraction first but intense mutual respect as a secondary. There’s no question that they are a match well made and the challenges that they face in their second book together reminds us that it’s never easy even when you feel like you are solid.
In addition to the case that Reese is working, and we know that he never defends someone who is guilty, there’s so much more going on. Cat has a secret of her own that she’s afraid to tell Reese because it’s something that they hadn’t talked about and something that’s being taken away as a result of a stalker reappearing in Reese’s life. threatening all that they have together and putting questions in everyone’s mind about what’s real.
One of the really wonderful things about this series – and these attorney’s cases specifically is that we all know that they won’t represent someone who’s guilty. so it’s partially about proving the prosecution wrong, but it’s also about putting to the forefront who actually committed each crime. this story does exactly that – gives us an opportunity to find out who killed this heiresses father – when we know it wasn’t her.
this stalker actually has really big role in the story – there are threats against Reese sure, but she comes after Cat and tries to break everything that they built up together, and the way that our author writes this makes us feel the stability in the relationship but also makes us wonder what the breaking point is for everyone.
The thread that’s always pulled through though is the heat and romance, the trust and love that’s shared between them and Lisa Renee Jones manages to give us a story with so much depth and intrigue that you find yourself reading it faster than imagined. I’m not going to lie, i hope this isn’t the last installment in the Cat and Reese saga.
I will warn you though – while this book is noted as number 7, you will get a spoiler of things if you read book 6 (The Bastard) which i read a while back – since there are scenes that cross over….just a warning! Enjoy!
