ARC received for an honest review

It has been forever since we have had a new TJ Hamilton book - well, just over 6 months but it feel like forever.

And Defending Pacer was well worth the wait.

Lawyer Chelsea Tanner and career criminal Paciano "Pacer" Fratelli could not be on more opposite sides of the legal fine line.

But what makes them so bad for each other is what makes them so good together.

"The feeling I have for a woman I've just met is beyond my control.  I don't know what to do with it.  All Iknow is I want her."  ~~ Pacer

From the moment they meet, they are consumed by each other - but what lengths will they go to to be together?  To defend their feelings for each other.

"Pacer Fratelli is so bad, but the fantasy of him is sublime.  I would never, could never be with someone like hin, but the very thought of him..." ~~ Chelsea

While there is plenty attraction and hot sexy action, there is also a lot of funny, sweet moments.  I loved seeing the playful, fun side of Pacer.  He was great before, but when those moments come out, he is absolutely amazing.

And what that man can do with a leather glove!
There was a secondary character that I just love love loved!  Logan - they (yes they, you will get it when you read) are just amazing.  I want a Logan in my life.

As with Ms Hamilton's other works, Defending Pacer has a darker undercurrent, showing us the seedier side of Sydney, and it has drawn me right in.  It was a rollercoaster of a ride, and I didn't want to get off.

Can't wait for what Ms Hamilton brings us next.


Those damn leather gloves, I blame them.

I run my fingers through my hair to blow out at the wet strands that have stuck around my lips, and I grab my glass and gulp the remainder of my week old wine, before flopping back against the couch to collect my thoughts.

Seriously though, what the hell was that?

Pacer Fratelli is my client! A dangerous client. A client who I know is a murderer.

I can’t feel like this, but I do.

His smile flashes before my eyes again. Oh my god, would you just leave me the hell alone? I punch my fists down onto the chair, either side of me.

I strip down as I head to the shower, peeling off each layer like I’m shedding skin and discarding the clothes on the floor with an angry slap. My body is still abuzz with my post-assault, but at the same time, I am pissed off. These thoughts have no place in my mind. They can fuck right off.

A after a good talking to myself in the stream of the cold shower, I throw on my old university sweats, ready to see my night out in front of the coffee table … and all things Pacer Fratelli.

Dangerously hot, Pacer Fratelli.
