Theo Angelis definitely puts the "hot" in "hotshot lawyer." Or at least, that's attorney Sadie Oliver's opinion. Even a simple handshake has her weak in the knees. If only there was time to explore the barely contained chemistry simmering between them....

But there isn't. Because Sadie desperately needs Theo's help. Her brother lies in hospital facing a murder charge, and t

When I bought The Defender, I didn't know it was part of a trilogy that ran concurrently. In fact, I didn't realize that until I went and bought The Cop as well and then read both books at the same time, for some odd reason.

This worked out well, fortunately, and the stories flowed around each other smoothly. In my opinion, Cara Summers did a clever thing by making each brother have his own book but all three's stories happening simultaneously.

The Defender is the third book and the mystery is sol

I enjoyed the way Summers broke down and spread out the mystery across the three books. Not sure which Angelis brother is my favorite, but this heroine (Sadie) is probably my favorite from among the ladies. She annoyed me when she went off to confront the two top suspects, but she redeemed herself in how she handled the final showdown. That is definitely something I appreciated in the series: the active roles each heroine played in their respective showdowns. The characters were engaging, but th ...more
B342 Aug07 Tall, Dark...and dangerously hot! #3 I have enjoyed this series and #3 was the best. Theo Angelis and Sadie Oliver join forces to solve the case. Her sister is missing along with her bridegroom and her brother is in the hospital unconscious after falling from a balcony. Sadie really stands up for herself, she's trying to do the best she can to find out where her sister is and what happened in the church before Roman was pushed from the balcony. Theo is the one she goes to and his intu ...more

Part of a trio of books with the same synchronous storyline, each book focusing on a different brother (a cop, a defense attorney, a private investigator). Since I read The P.I. first, I felt like I was caught in a loop and I was not that interested in the plot at all. This is a shame, because now I don't feel very motivated to finish out the brothers' stories. The storytelling technique is neat, but unfortunately wasted on me.
I loved this series. The first two books, The Cop (Bk 1), and The P.I. (Bk 2) were so interesting, that i just had to fin out the ending!! XD
