In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits. Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer. Determined not to make the same mistakes, he’s intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything–even murder–to keep the case from going to trial.
Wow! I thought I would not like this book but I was totally wrong. Filled with mystery, suspense, and just the right amount of romance, Rachel Dylan had me holding my breath, when I was reading this book. When I started reading this book, I thought it was going to be filled with to much “lawyer talk” but I was able to read and understand all of it.
Kate was a great main character, who played her part very nicely. With her soft spoken ways and kind heart she ruled the courtroom. Landon, the private investigator/ex Army Ranger, was just what this book needed to keep those who like a little romance in the books (like me) interested in the book. Don’t get me wrong, I liked all the other aspects of the book too. I actually did not know who the “bad” guy was until it played out in the book. I just assumed it was the one Kate thought is was in the book, but no, Rachel Dylan surprised me.
After reading the book, I went and looked at the author bio and saw that Rachel Dylan is from Michigan. As a fellow Michigander, I am very happy that there is another good author from the Mitten state.
So, to conclude this review, I recommend this book. It was a great read and I am looking forward to reading more by this author.
