New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns to her latest, steamy Conflict of Interest series with this electrifying tale of murder, justice, and intense attraction.

Jaxon Bentley is a hardnosed criminal lawyer whose entire life revolves around his work. He’s been asked to represent Scarlett Reyes, a woman accused of murdering her police officer husband in cold blood. All the evidence points to Scarlett being guilty and Jaxon is sure it’s an open and shut case.

But when he meets his client, he can’t help but feel that she’s innocent and that there’s more to the story than meets the eye. With a bit of digging, he uncovers a connection to the notorious Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club and realizes that Scarlett’s case is a complicated and difficult one. It certainly doesn’t help that the two share an immediate and passionate attraction. Will Jaxon be able to prove Scarlett’s innocence or are the two doomed to fail both in court and as a couple?

Jaxon Bentley, lawyer extraordinaire, is my new hero! His compassion, his whole demeanor is a credit to himself! I so loved this story where Jaxson defends Scarlett when she is accused of killing her husband! Jaxon is a very thorough lawyer, doing his utmost to support his clients! His friendships with his co workers and his best friend is wonderful!
What I enjoyed about this story was the suspense, the tension, the words that flowed and the emotional moments too!
I had tears, I laughed, I sympathized with the characters and just immersed myself into the story!
This book is a credit to the author for writing such an enjoyable read!!


This is book two in the conflict of Interest Series but even though we met Jaxon Bentley in book one I  think you could read these books as standalones.
Jaxon Bentley a hot criminal lawyer is defending the aloof Scarlett Reyes who has been accused of murdering her police officer husband, all the evidence is saying she did it can Jaxon prove her innocence and why did he take this case  because on the face of it he will lose and Jaxon Bentley is not a loser. 
The attraction is instant but will their pasts get in the way of their love for each other after all one is broken and one is abused. 
This book had my emotions all over the place, it’s sweet yet heartbreaking and it has some unexpected twists.  I loved how the author bought the Wind Dragon MC  into the story without them taking it over and I loved the strength and depth of her characters, I can’t wait for book three and I really hope it’s Hunter’s story. Great read.
