Seducing the Defendant is a steamy romance between a lawyer and his client, with low angst and a surprisingly heartbreaking plot twist near the end. Just when you think things are going too smoothly, Ms. Fernando is right there to punch...

I enjoyed this one. It was one of those easy-peasy low angst types of reads. I thought the court case mystery would feature throughout the book, but it gets wrapped up in the first 30% and then we just get a lot of sex. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing but it also doesn't make for the most exc...

DNF @ 30%
The characters are one-dimensional and the romance is doing nothing for me. Every interaction is coming off flat and emotionless to me.
The court case comes off unrealistic and unbelievable, and I just can't get past the ridiculousness.

But that ending dropped...

The hero and heroine were a good match and it was articulated well in...

This is first book i have read by Chantal Fernando and I certainly enjoyed reading it. There was suspense in it which I very much enjoy, though I would have like a bit more suspense in it, there is romance and lots of sexiness and I loved reading it.

pretty good overall
I have read many of this author’s books. I have enjoyed them all too. So I was excited to break into this new book.
I was happy to see some familiar names, especially a tie into the Wind Dragons and the first book, in this new series. I really loved Jaxson. S...

ARC received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was an okay read. Plot was intersting, but I had some hard time connecting to the characters.
It had a lot of potential, but it just didn't really work for me.
Writing was on point, which is nothing new...
