CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Firstly, let me say, I enjoyed this legal romance story. Following the case from start to finish was enlightening as the reader gets a close up look at the civil legal system. Character driven, the story’s unique and will appeal to anyone who enjoys a romance with substance.
Secondly, author Alicia Bryant included twists and turns in the plotting. I was not expecting the final unexpected twist and revelation. The pacing of the story was in line with the length of the story and did not lag or bog down.
