Publisher's Summary

Kathleen Turner has goals. She moved to Indianapolis to start seeing to them, but things aren’t going quite as well as she’d hoped. She’s a runner for a high-powered law firm in town, not the most prestigious of positions, but it and her part-time bartender gig at least pays the bills. And one of the senior partners is a dreamboat in that obscenely rich, disturbingly good looking, slightly snobbish sort of way.
It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from her neighbor Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood.
Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend. It’s the opening gambit in a web of murder, deceit, conspiracy, and fraud that stretches to the law firm for which Kathleen works. Maybe to the very office that Blane Kirk commands.
And Kathleen Turner, law office runner, can trust no one if she wants to survive.

I wish Kathleen was a bit tougher

These books have promise, but I don't know if I'm 100% sold. The mystery was interesting enough, but I just wasn't sold on our heroine, Kathleen Turner. I know she's supposed to be young, but how anyone can be that naive, I have no idea. She blindly trusted everyone from the many men trying to get into her pants to her random neighborhood. And she was so hell bent on getting justice for her murder neighbor. I know she's your friend and all, but seriously, you are going to risk your life to find out who killed her? That type of loyalty is usually reserved for someone you know more than a couple of months and had a few cups of coffee with. She just made so many dumb mistakes and most of what she accomplished was from blind luck as opposed to any real intelligence or skill. And she was constantly being saved by someone else. I mean, constantly. I like my heroes (men or women) to be a little more self-sufficient. I had high hopes for this cop's daughter, but overall, she disappointed me, and after a while, the book started to feel a little long with her repeated antics.

I think I'll read one more book in the series to see if things improve, because they do have potential. But if the next one is anything like the first, then I think it'll be the last.

Audiobook review: The narrator's voice was semi-robotic. It was weird because her reading of the dialogue was pretty decent. With the exception of the men's voices, I thought she did a pretty good job. But reading everything else, oh my...

Good Listening Book At @ $7.34 Bargain Price

Great Romantic Suspense! Plenty of wonderful action to keep you on your toes. This is the first book in the series and it does a nice job of setting up the main characters.

Kathleen Turner really quirky and fun to read. The whole book is from her POV, which makes all the relationships really one sided. I generally like to know what the guy is thinking as well. Kathleen is like a younger less hardened Stephanie Plum. She falls into trouble, definitely has a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time. While not wholly street savvy, she did have a cop for a father, which puts her ahead of most gals in the self defense department. Although, I did get annoyed at her TSTL moves, there is a big difference between independent woman and murder bait!

Blane is yummy and over-protective at times, then there is the dark and delicious Kade, how is a girl to choose? Sadly this is mainstream, which makes a wicked menage very unlikely. I am spoiled by my erotic romances, they don't make me choose! Either guy is great on his own but together they would be epic!

The steam factor is very yummy. You get a few smexy scenes but not as detailed as an erotic. Still yummy and temperature altering!!

The suspense portion of the story was terrific, exciting and engaging throughout. Lots going on, many nefarious players in action. There did seem to be a touch more exposition going on at times, which caused the book to lag every now and again. In the end, it was a very enjoyable read and I am eager to see what is in store for the series.

Angela Dawe was fantastic with the delivery of the story.
