At the powerhouse law firm of Knight & Payne, winning comes first and ethics a distant second. Leary Michaels uses her female charms to daze opponents, and it’s always worked well—until now. On her most personal case yet, she finds herself going up against a defense attorney just as skilled, shameless, and seductive as she is.
Reeve Holloway has never met a woman as sure of her own sexuality, or as ruthless in wielding it, as Leary is. But he won’t be toyed with. What Leary starts, he’ll finish—in the courtroom, the bedroom, or any-damn-place he wants. The sex is uninhibited, electrifying, and absolutely against the rules. Reeve’s job is to ruin Leary’s case…even if it destroys her in the process and costs him the woman he’s come to love.

One Line: Another excellent book from one of my favorite authors.
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
I’ve enjoyed the series so far and Bennett has always been able to balance the legal aspect of the story with the romance and the drama. It’s very apparent in this book, though. The case that Leary and Reeve have to deal with is pretty big and I liked that Bennett was able to draw focus to it when needed, and not bore the reader in the process, yet also pull focus away just as seamlessly so the reader could connect with the characters and watch their budding romance blossom. I think I enjoyed this particular case a bit more because it’s a medical malpractice case, which, of course, isn’t fun, but it’s nice when you know what’s going on and can connect to the subject more.
I think I might just have a favorite in this series after reading this book. Cal and Matt both have their merits, but Reeve is just so amazing through and through, he really won me over in this book. I appreciated his level of maturity and how he handled his relationship with Leary. He is such a good guy overall and he has all the qualities that would make me fall head over heels for him, that’s for sure. Leary was also a great character and I admired her tenacity and passion. She’s one of those lawyers who fight for “the little person” and she does it well. While she did let her emotions get the best of her at times during the story, she shined overall.
With each book I read of Bennett’s, I fall more and more in love with her writing and her imagination. She never fails to create such amazing, entertaining, and often times, sinful stories. Pair that with characters that I’ve come to know and love, and you can see why she’s easily one of my favorite authors ever. The woman can do no wrong!
