When bad love feels so good, just how far would you go to defend it?
This book had more depth than you would think. A great read with very interesting characters. Proving you have to look deeper to see the true person inside.
Chelsea is an associate of Sydney’s top law firm and she has just been given the case of a lifetime if she has any hope of getting Pacer Fratelli a member of the infamous Legano family off a murder charge – whether he is guilty or not. She is the best at what she does, a very observant, strong willed, level headed women. Until the moment Pacer walks into her office that is and turns her whole world upside down.
Pacer previous lawyer has decided to no longer defend his family or his case so he has been passed over to a new firm where he is waiting for his new ‘hotshot’ lawyer to make an appearance. Twenty minutes late and he is starting to get a bit annoyed, that is until he see’s who he thinks is the hotshot’s sexy secretary. He is beyond surprised to find out that she is in fact the hotshot barrister that he has a meeting with. Once he gets a good look at his barrister he knows he wants her. With what she wears he thinks of her as his honeybee and all he can think about is getting a taste of how sweet she will be.
The murder charge doesn’t seem to bother Pacer, he knows it won’t stick; all he can think about is getting closer to Chelsea. The more time that they spend together to harder it is for Chelsea to deny the sexy chemistry between them. She has never wanted someone so bad in her life and when he wears those leather gloves it takes a great effort to not jump him. She wasn’t looking for love and being involved with a client is a very bad thing. But when being bad feels this good she ceases to care.
With a murder charge hanging over Pacer’s head, danger lurking from corrupt cops and their families on the wrong side of each other it will take a lot to get them to where they want to be – in each others arms from here on out for good.
Those damn leather gloves, I blame them.
I run my fingers through my hair to blow out at the wet strands that have stuck around my lips, and I grab my glass and gulp the remainder of my week old wine, before flopping back against the couch to collect my thoughts.
Seriously though, what the hell was that?
Pacer Fratelli is my client! A dangerous client. A client who I know is a murderer.
I can’t feel like this, but I do.
His smile flashes before my eyes again. Oh my god, would you just leave me the hell alone? I punch my fists down onto the chair, either side of me.
I strip down as I head to the shower, peeling off each layer like I’m shedding skin and discarding the clothes on the floor with an angry slap. My body is still abuzz with my post-assault, but at the same time, I am pissed off. These thoughts have no place in my mind. They can fuck right off.
A after a good talking to myself in the stream of the cold shower, I throw on my old university sweats, ready to see my night out in front of the coffee table … and all things Pacer Fratelli.
Dangerously hot, Pacer Fratelli.
