I enjoyed this book just as much as, if not more than, I did the first time. The characters are strong yet vulnerable and Jae takes her time to develop the trust between them. Very well written. After reading her newest books right before my re-read of this one though, I think she's come a long way with more casual, natural English dialogue. Some of Conflict of Interest reads a little more formal than what one would expect. But it didn't take away from the story; just something I noticed.

I think I've hit a niche of books that I like, cop dramas. I like the story line, the interaction between the 2 characters. Both are strong women, and as with most people they have their respective baggage. Very believable story, well developed characters, the dialogue is well written, and the author keeps me interested by a suspenseful storyline, and a budding romance. Great combination for me. Can't wait to get the sequel on my kindle.

When a chance encounter at a law enforcement seminar brings detective Aiden Carlisle and psychologist Dawn Kinsley into contact neither have any idea of how closely linked their futures will be.

Dawn comes from a long line of Irish cops so she is well aware of the demands and pressures placed upon them, but she steers away from getting involved with any more of them. Aiden works with the Sexual Assault Detail and faces vicious crimes as part of her everyday life, but like all

Dawn ist Psychologin und kümmert sich in ihrer Praxis hauptsächlich um (homosexuelle) Misshandlungs- und Vergewaltigungsopfer - oder sie hält Vorträge auf Fortbildungsseminaren für Polizisten, die auf sexuelle Verbrechen spezialisiert sind. Zu diesen gehört auch Aiden, die mit Leib und Seele Detective ist. Als sich die beiden Frauen auf dem Seminar kennen lernen, ahnt keine von ihnen, wie eng ihre Zukunft miteinander verknüpft ist - denn nur kurze Zeit später wird Dawn selbst Opfer einer Vergewa ...more
I only realize the book is over 400 pages when I've finished the book. It totally didn't feel so. I like the details of this book, the evidence, investigation, the court scene and of course I love Dawn and Aiden. I like that the book started with Aiden knowing Dawn before everything happened, it paints the baseline of who Dawn is for the readers and so we can see the recovery and progress which she has made. I love Aiden for her loyalty and patience.

I'm curious if we are going to get the next bo

loved this book, the journey of dawn after the crime towards her and healing process, (small steps). was sad and inspiring. the detective was understanding and complex. towards dawn but not herself. detectives logic regarding commitment was brilliant.

Love this story and author

I read the falling star book first but it didn't matter much for this book. I loved the story and the characters. Fantastic.
Cookie O'neill
Great story, very respectful and i can not wait to read the next one
Yep, still very much enjoy this book.
Another good read from Jae...
Whilst I loved her Historical Lesbian Fiction novels. I really do have a soft spot for lesbian cops with a big shiny gun! The story was good and interesting and the conflicts were both meaningful and sexy. Would love to read more of these!
Read in one evening, very well crafted and exciting. I went out and downloaded very book Jae has written!

Jae grew up amidst the vineyards of southern Germany. She spent her childhood with her nose buried in a book, earning her the nickname, “professor.” The writing bug bit her at the age of eleven. She works as a psychologist and likes to spend her time reading, cooking, and watching too many crime shows.
