There’s a devil on my shoulder, and every Monday morning she announces herself. She’s this delicious flame in my chest, a flurry of whispered suggestions in my ear. Suggestions I ignore…because every single one of them is about Ben Tate.
Ben—Stealer of Clients, Evicter of Homeless Women, Nemesis. Sitting across from me every damn Monday with his lovely, smug smile and his too-perfect teeth, the living symbol of everything I hate.
It’s been my policy to avoid him, but when a case comes into the firm—one that could change his career and mine—I make an exception. It means weekends and evenings by his side. It means enduring his smirk and his smart mouth and never taking the bait.
Until the night Ben says, “Beg.”
And that devil on my shoulder decides to make a few demands of her own.
I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This book was an absolute pleasant surprise! I honestly didn’t know what to expect with this book, but I surely didn’t expect to love Ben and Gemma as much as I do. I’ve read the other books in this series and I don’t know what this author did with this story, but it was on a completely different level than the other two books. The writing, plot, characters, and chemistry was amazing! It felt so real and was incredibly easy to connect with Ben and Gemma. When I started this book I figured I was gonna probably end up giving it four stars, because I knew how this author wrote the other books in this series. Yet, even before the 50% mark, I knew that I was going to rate it five stars. If I was actually able to sit down and read it in one setting I totally would have! This book is on my list of favorite reads from this year. It was such a steller story! I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a realistic story with main characters who aren’t perfect but will win you over with their wit, charm and steamy chemistry.
I also had the pleasure of listening to this book on audio and Samantha Brentmoor did such a great job as Gemma!
