New Series by one of my favorite authors. This first book in the new Wolfe Security Series is great! It was great seeing Liam and Mark Wolfe from the Tracers Series. Heart pounding, pulse racing, just when you think it's over - it's not. "Desperate Girls" raises the bar for everything that will come after. Hot romance - it delivers. Heart stopping suspense - it delivers. A twisted mystery - that too. There is nothing this book promises that it doesn't deliver.
Brynn Holloran, a defense attorney, is all set for the trial of a young man she is convinced is innocent. Nothing can change her focus, until the murder of a former associate, Jen Ballard. Now her boss, Reggie Gunn, insists that she and her co-council, Ross Foley, have protection and the man suspected in the murder, James Corby, is a escaped rapist and murderer bent on revenge on everyone who had a hand in convicting him and that included Brynn and Ross.
Erik Morgan, former Secret Service Agent, now a Wolfe Security Operative, has his hands full with the protective detail for Brynn. She is head-strong and doesn't follow orders - at all. But something about this smoking hot, auburn haired spitfire just does it for Erik. She is the total package - beauty, brains and a spine of steel. Keeping her alive may be easier than keeping out of her bed.
With no progress in catching the killer, Brynn and Erik take the search in a different direction. With the help of Lindsey Leary, While combing through her old case files, Brynn discovers some discrepancies in the original case work that could put her in the crosshairs of yet another killer.
Defense attorney Brynn Holloran is right at home among cops, criminals, and tough-as-nails prosecutors. With her sharp wit and pointed words, she has a tendency to intimidate, and she likes it that way. She’s a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom, but in her personal life, she’s a mess.
When a vicious murderer she once helped prosecute resurfaces and starts a killing spree to wipeout those who put him behind bars, one thing becomes clear: Brynn needs to run for her life.
With no help from the police, Brynn is forced to take matters into her own hands, turning to a private security firm for protection. But when Brynn defies advice and gets involved in the investigation, even the former Secret Service agent assigned to protect her may not be able to keep her safe. With every new clue she discovers, Brynn is pulled back into the vortex of a disturbing case from her past.
As the clock ticks down on a manhunt, Brynn’s desperate search for the truth unearths long-buried secrets and reignites a killer’s fury. (
