ARC received for an honest review

I have adored everything I have ready by Ms Fernando, and I am a big fan of her Conflict of Interest series.

I have been waiting for Hunter's story, and Ms Fernando certainly did not disappoint.  He is the hottie lawyer, hiding his tattoos under expensive suits.  However he does wear his heart on his sleeve, and he has been wearing it for Riley for a long time. 

I love the banter between our lovelies, and sparks sure do fly between them.

I love Riley's kick ass, I don't need your help attitude, even when it is to her detriment.  I also love that she will take the help - albeit reluctantly at first - when it is offered.

Hunter's name says it all.  He goes for what he wants-eventually! And oh my, how wouldn't want to  be hunted by Hunter?  I adore that he is so protective of his friends, would go to bat for any of them if they needed it.

I freaking love love love the banter between the guys an gals from the previous books. They are such a close knit group of friends, and they are full of bite and snark and taking the p!ss out of each other.

I don't want to say too much about the story, just know that I think it was my favourite in the whole series - so far.

I can't wait to see where Ms Fernando takes us next with these illegally hot lawyers.
