“Does a girl ever really learn from her mistakes?
Detective Sergeant Megan Taylor thinks so. She once lost her heart to a man who was too charming and she isn’t about to make the same mistake again – especially not with sexy defence lawyer, Scott Armstrong. Aside from being far too sure of himself for his own good, Scott’s major flaw is that he defends the very people that she works so hard to imprison.
But when Scott wants something he goes for it. And he wants Megan. One day she’ll see him not as a lawyer, but as a man … and that’s when she’ll fall for him.
Yet just as Scott seems to be making inroads, a case presents itself that’s far too close to home, throwing his life into chaos.
As Megan helps him pick up the pieces, can he persuade her that he isn’t the careless charmer she thinks he is? Isn’t a man innocent until proven guilty?”
4 of 5 stars
I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Megan Taylor does not like how she reacts to Barrister Scott Armstrong. She finds him arrogant and too self – assured but can’t help finding him attractive. She has been hurt in the past so doesn’t want to fall for someone like him again, besides he works for the ‘other side’ defending the people she builds a case against as a police officer. She soon finds that Scott is not as he appears and begins to fall for him, but is he too charming?
I found myself racing through this book. I thought that there was lovely chemistry between Scott and Megan and the path of true love was strewn with the usual and not so usual obstacles. The relationship between the pair develops at a realistic pace which made it all the more pleasant to read. Being an ex criminal solicitor there were a couple of things that niggled me and which jumped out at me every time I read them, but that’s just an issue with me!
All in all a lovely, light romantic read and one I enjoyed.
