Defense attorney Brynn Holloran is right at home among cops, criminals, and tough-as-nails prosecutors. With her sharp wit and pointed words, she has a tendency to intimidate, and she likes it that way. She’s a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom, but in her personal life, she’s a mess.

When a vicious murderer she once helped prosecute resurfaces and starts a killing spree to wipeout those who put him behind bars, one thing becomes clear: Brynn needs to run for her life.

With no help from the police, Brynn is forced to take matters into her own hands, turning to a private security firm for protection. But when Brynn defies advice and gets involved in the investigation, even the former Secret Service agent assigned to protect her may not be able to keep her safe. With every new clue she discovers, Brynn is pulled back into the vortex of a disturbing case from her past.

As the clock ticks down on a manhunt, Brynn’s desperate search for the truth unearths long-buried secrets and reignites a killer’s fury.

I am not a fan of spoilers, and while you find it out quickly, the hero's name, and role in the story, are not in the blurb. so I am going to be careful with this review.

Laura Griffin always tells an interesting story, and one that you believe.  The trick, I think, to writing romantic suspense is having characters that believe their situation...and acknowledge that making out in the elevator after being chased through the streets of (insert city) and, in this book, they get it, they resist the attraction, and then when they act on it, you believe it.

This book, as you find out in the blurb, is about a woman who is on the top of her game professionally and who really doesn't believe the threat against her is real and that the security is necessary.  As it becomes more clear that the threat is real, Brynn becomes more determined to be a part of figuring out what is happening, and of figuring out how to get herself out of the situation...which causes more issues than it solves.

The romance in this is real, and I loved the ending.  I love it when a romance works with the characters, and the lives they lead, and figures out a way to still make it work.  It works in this one, I enjoyed it, and I recommend it.
