Book & Author Details:
Evidence of Desire by Lexi Blake
A Courting Justice Novel
Publication date: January 8th 2019
Genres: Romantic Suspense
Isla Shayne knows she’s in over her head. As former all-star linebacker Trey Adams’s personal lawyer, she’s used to handling his business dealings and private financial matters, not murder charges. She needs to find an experienced criminal attorney who speaks her client’s language. David Cormack of Garrison, Cormack and Lawless is exactly what she needs in the courtroom–and the only man she wants in the bedroom.
For David, taking on the Adams case means diving back into a world he thought he’d left behind and colliding head on with tragic possibilities he’s in no mood to face. There’s a reason professional football is in his past and no matter how close Isla gets to the truth he intends to leave it there.
But long days working on the case together lead to hot nights in each other’s arms. As their feelings grow, the case takes a deadly twist that could change the game between the two lovers forever.
For me, this was definitely a stronger story than book 1. Don’t get me wrong, book 1 was most definitely an enjoyable read. But I was able to connect with this one from the outset. Maybe because I knew some of the characters already, I don’t know. But what I can tell you is that these two protagonists are three dimensional, likeable characters who play well off each other.
Add into that a decent suspense plot line, an appropriate amount of misdirection, emotion and a not insignificant dollop of chemistry, and you have another engrossing read from Lexi Blake.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
