Back cover blurb:

Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face to face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she’s stunned. More troubling to the beautiful Assistant U.S. Attorney is that she’s still wildly attracted to him.


Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn’t thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case — but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can’t say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won’t give up on something he wants — and what he wants is the one woman he’s never forgotten…

My review:
Julie James does it again! This series is such fun to read, and Ms James knows how to craft a story so the pacing, characterisation, humour and smoking hotness is just right. Kyle was one of my favourites from the previous book, and here we get to see him reunited with a woman he met nine years previously, who just turns out to be the prosecutor in his Twitter hacking case.

What I love so much about this series is that the scenarios don’t seem contrived, unlike with some other contemporary romances. There’s an old boyfriend on the fringes, but no silly love triangle developed, and despite my fear at one point, there was also no switcheroo with the courtroom drama coming back to bite them on the bum. We also get the added bonus of all the old characters featuring, too, like Cameron and Jack and Nick and Jordan. Next up in the series just might be the lovely Agent Wilkins and maybe Rae? I hope so! Cade Morgan should also be in line for a book if I had any say about it 🙂

I preordered this and am so glad I did. Julie James should be on everyone’s auto-buy list. Highly recommended.

My rating: 5/5
