From Publishers Weekly
Levine's second light legal thriller to feature by-the-book Florida attorney Victoria Lord and her partner/lover, bypass-the-book Steve Solomon, isn't quite up to the level of its predecessor, Solomon vs. Lord (2005), but it's still a smart, enjoyable page-turner. Hal Griffin, an entrepreneur and onetime business partner of Victoria's late father, stands accused of murdering an EPA official with a speargun. There's plenty of evidence pointing to Griffin's guilt, and it's up to Victoria to prove his innocence. Spurning Steve's help, she begins an investigation that leads her to uncover long hidden family secrets. Meanwhile, Steve delves into his own family history as he attempts to discover the truth behind his father's scandalous suspension from the Florida judicial bench. Levine once again supplies plenty of quirky characters and witty banter between Steve and Victoria. (Jan. 31)

I almost gave up on this book because Steve Solomon was acting like Lassiter’s twin. Fortunately, Levine saved it by having Solomon grow up. And throughout most of the book Solomon and his partner, Victoria Lord, acted like bickering siblings than adult lawyers.
Levine also wasted too many words on women’s boobs and men’s penises.
Offsetting the frat boy writing is a complex, twisty mystery and two great characters in Steve Solomon and Victoria Lord.
I won’t give up on this series just yet but if Levine continues writing at this level, I will.
This book kept me laughing though and I got to read about another potential love triangle as Victoria entertains the possibility of reuniting with the boy that gave her her first kiss as a teenager. To Steve’s utter dismay, the boy is very much a handsome, rich, talented, and tanned (and definitely well endowed - as you'll read) man named Junior. It was funny to see how Steve reacted to Junior as he and Victoria attempt to prove Junior’s father innocent of a murder. Not only is that going on, but Victoria is also dabbling in the possibility of being a solo lawyer and moving away from having Steve as a partner. This is the reason why I wasn’t as enthralled with this book as I was with the first. It seemed that Victoria is never happy with whatever situation she’s in; like she’s wanting/expecting more. Levine rationalizes it but I found it a bit annoying at times. I would have expected Steve to behave that way. Instead, he was the love-sick guy who could never do anything right in Victoria's eyes. Now, with that said, I really could not put the book down. It was action packed and it had a lot of laugh out loud moments, which is hard to get me to do. I can’t wait to see what happens next with these two.
I have rated this book 4.5 stars.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
I understand the author is successful and I'm happy for him - clearly I'm in the minority.
Almost beset with self-doubts, which is carried into court (even that is virtually insignificant), this is more about resolving a host of emotional issues for both lawyers.
At times rather convoluted. There is a lack of crispness which makes for a tedious read. Very little humor, except for Bobby, a precocious kid who is far more intelligent than appears.
