About Ms. Lawyer:
She’s the new public defender in town. He’s running for sheriff.
Emma Ryan vows never to live in a small town again. Then her boss transfers her to Chestertown on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
On opposite sides of the law, Emma quickly clashes with police officer Luke Hudson.
But when Emma is threatened, she’ll need to work with Luke to determine who’s responsible.
Stubborn, cocky and ambitious, Luke will stop at nothing to get what he wants. When his association with a criminal defense attorney puts his bid for sheriff in jeopardy, he’ll need to choose between his dream job and taking a chance on love.
Emma has been transferred to the small town of Chestertown. She is a public defender on loan from the city to cover for the one out on maternity leave. Emma hates small towns. She is a loaner who tends to keep to herself. She doesn’t like everyone knowing her business and she doesn’t like to be social. She is much happier with her nose in a book.
When Emma starts to settle in she makes friends. Something she has never had before. They push her to be social. When the hot cop Luke starts to flirt with her, she feels it is a mistake. But when his advances become stronger and he lets her know he wants her, things start to fall in place and she feels like she belongs for the first time in her life. But when she gets attacked she cannot figure out who would want to hurt her. Can Luke find out who is after her before it is too late?
Overall this book was a pretty good read. I did kind of find Emma to be a bit withdrawn and introverted. I liked her character. Luke on the other hand was a pain in the butt throughout the story. I had a hard time falling in love with his character. To me he felt self absorbed and let others influence his decisions. His back and forth with his feelings gave me whiplash.
This book had some steamy and hot moments mixed with thrilling suspense. This helped to keep the story interesting and fun. The other characters were fun and energetic. I loved the girls. They were fun. I do wish that Samantha would have had more of a backbone. But I did find it cool that she did not have a bad thing to say about anyone. So refreshing.
If you like a good suspense romance, then this book will be enjoyable to you. It has thrills, chills and fun.
