ARC Review! Necessary Evil by Jamie K. Schmidt

In this steamy series opener from bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt—whose writing has been called “hot and sexy, with just the right amount of emotional punch,” by Lauren Layne—a vigilante biker takes the power of love into his own hands.

Lucy Simmons comes from a rough family, but she’s a damn good public defender. Even though she hates to see criminals walk due to sloppy police work, the law’s there to make sure everyone gets a fair trial, and Lucy certainly doesn’t believe in the kind of justice meted out by the leather-clad ex-cop they call “Evil.” He’s stubborn, cynical, and out of control—but he plays her body like no man ever has. For once, both Lucy’s boss and her brother agree: The biker is trouble.

Evan Villiers took a sacred vow to let no killer, rapist, or pedophile go unpunished. When scumbags fall through the system, his motorcycle club cleans up the garbage. Although the Sons of Babylon and their methods may not be to Lucy’s liking, the beautiful lawyer has become Evan’s light in the dark. But his next hit is Lucy’s own brother—a murderer who got off on a technicality. Now, with his loyalties split, Evan must turn his back on his brothers . . . or lose the woman who has claimed his reckless heart.
Lucy and Evan were a compelling couple.  The attraction of a public defender and a police officer would be difficult to deal with, as they would meet in court...on opposite sides...often.  And then Evan retired.  All of a sudden, they were an option...but they resisted the attraction for 2 years.  And then they were on opposite sides of the law.  Of course, the attraction at that point was more than they could ignore.

The idea that they were again on opposite sides was appealing.  The strength of the attraction was believable and I was willing to accept that they each would have been willing to give things up for the other. Evan was tough, compelling, forceful and authorative.  And hot.  Lucy was strong.  She had grit and strength.  She is an excellent match for Evan.

The writing was strong, the dialog was realistic and the pacing was strong.  I enjoyed the book and I am looking forward to the next books in the series.
