Except this new associate I've hired is unnaturally skilled at putting chinks in my well-constructed armor. Her brazen talk and fiery attitude make me want to take control of her and silence her - in ways that will keep both of us busy till dawn. She drives me absolutely 100% crazy, but I need her for this case. I need her in my bed. I need her to let loose the man within me who fights with rage and loves with scorching desire...
This was the best of the 3 books in the series.
Washington, Wash, and Caroline had amazing chemistry, from the beginning. The forbidden aspect of this story, the partner and associate relationship at a law firm, is possibly not that new, but it is done well.
Caroline was a little harsh and classless in places, but it worked as she was allowed to also be intelligent and attractive. Wash was interesting and appealing and his struggle to keep away from Caroline added heat to the story. The scene at the judge's house when he surprises Caroline...wow.
The story was well-written, the serial killer defendant subplot was engaging without being overwrought and too filled with legal terms. The dialog was realistic, the pacing was also good and the romance and the murder story lines were balanced well.
I recommend this book.
