Elena Jackson is the envisionment of every guy's perfect girl. She's strong, independent, and very stubborn. When she gets moved from the Sex Crimes Unit to Cold Case Unit with her TV star father's associates for a boss, she is asked to investigate the murder of Mary Lynn Warner-Elliot, who was the wife of Adam Elliot, a famous football player who played for the Phoenix Scorpions. How was she to know that she'd end up meeting her match in Adam's Attorney, Reardon North.
Reardon knows that his friend, Adam, didn't kill his wife by choking her with her own wedding veil. He just passed the Bar and uses his rookie attorney skills to prove Elena Jackson wrong. Who knew that he'd be fighting his feelings for her more than fighting her accusations against Adam.
More murders have happened since the murder of Mary Lynn and all of them have happened to new brides. Are the murders of the other women and Mary Lynn connected? Did Adam really kill his wife, and if he did, does that mean he killed the other women?
This is an awesome book! I had a hard time putting it down so I could go to class. It's wonderful. I'm so impressed with the talent these authors have of mixing the romantic tension between Elena and Reardon with the suspense-filled mystery of who killed Mary Lynn. The characters are so realistic, you could easily compare them to anyone you know and find that they're a lot a like them. Elena is the epitome of the independent woman. This book does have couple of sex scenes. They are tastefully done, but I do not recommend this book for anyone under 17. I definitely recommend this book.
