This definitely was not what I was expecting. i was expecting the lead to fall for her side piece-not his bedroom skills. She fell in love with an opportunity to use some to remove a thorn in her side. The title implies she fell in love with her side piece….
The story was riddled with inconsistencies whether it be timeline, statements the characters made about themselves or in a reference to a situation. How can a character be in the hospital and at a hotel for you to bump into them at the same time. Are you a tough, educated, calculating criminal attorney or are you a low budget, neck swiveling “hood rat”? Are you the king of the streets or are you naïve as newcomer to the game that can’t spot a setup? The timeline was pretty fluid as well as the personality of the characters. The mentality of the leads in this book was very sophomoric in such a way that you immediately could not take the description of “high powered criminal lawyer and street king” seriously. These things couple with the grammatical errors and lack of structure made for a difficult read. I’m sure the author is talented. I think I will try one of her other works. This story didn’t “gel”.

Would you try another book from Racquel Williams and/or iiKane?
This book didn't make me want to listen to another book by this author. The story was interesting and I kept going back because I wanted to find out what happened in the end, but the language was too much for me to really enjoy the story.
Would you ever listen to anything by Racquel Williams again?
I'm not sure if I would listen to another book by Racquel Williams but I'm not totally against it.
What would have made this romance irresistible?
If the main character wasn't so grimy, I would have enjoyed the book more. The main character Malia was just tooooooo much.
Any additional comments?
It's okay to have sensual moments in a book, but the way they did it in this book was kinda extra.
