Conflict of Interest was a great book, so I was really looking forward to the sequel. Unfortunately I was destined for disappointment. This book was overly long, and not much happens.

This books suffers from a few problems, the main couple from the original story aren't given enough to do (in fact this book doesn't really advance their relationship much at all, Dawn spends more time with Evan and Kade than with Aiden)

There's the infuriating trope where the other secondary characters all pair up i

Interesting but forced sequel. Jae always creates nice characters, gives them space to develop and slowly progress the romance. However, the stalker plot line didn't sit well (other than a device to allow the romantic protagonists to spend time together) and the pay off was like a bad episode of an 80's cop drama.

Truly amazing story. I wanted to know about the other people in their lives and I finally got to find out. The sister was mind blowing but as the story went on I kind of figured. I think it's really funny because they are just alike, whether they want to admit it or not. Of course there was the element of danger thrown in, a question of rape, a question of sexuality and a question of how far will someone go to get what they want? I couldn't put this book down. I highly recommend it.
Another intricate and entertaining story with fascinating characters and very hot sex scenes.

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.
