HE’S PLAYING GAMES
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.
BUT SHE’S MAKING THE RULES
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. . .
I love when a hero and heroine have a "history"... :) In this case, it was only about 30 minutes of history (albeit including one really great kiss), but it was memorable enough that when Rylann and Kyle meet again 9 years later, both of them remember. (SUPER CUTE!)
Anyway, Rylann Pierce is an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) who has just transferred to Chicago (working under Cameron from Book 1). And day 1, she has to step in for another AUSA who's busy... The case? The one Jordan was promised in Book 2: Getting her twin brother, Kyle Rhodes, off with time served. And when their eyes meet across the courtroom... haha! Well. They both remember.
And then Rylann gets another case where Kyle is a possible witness... (Conveniently enough...) So they keep getting thrown into each others' paths. And they're definitely still attracted to each other. But she CAN'T get involved with a witness on a case! (The conversation she has about this with her best friend Rae is hilarious, btw! Loved that!)
And then, when the case is over, and things start to *cough* pick up, she's really worried about being an AUSA who's dating an ex-con (even though his crime was like... SOOOOO not that big a deal (at least in my eyes!!)). So they have this secret underground relationship...
My only complaint was, again, with the f-bombs. Not sexy. Just coarse. Seriously.
Anyway, other than that, it was SO CUTE! I stayed up until nearly 6 AM reading it. OOPS!!!!read more
