ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, I just CAN'T rate this amazing book high enough! First off, I want to start by saying that I've never read anything by this author before so I was excited to start this book just based on the fact that I love finding new authors (well new to me anyways). After reading the blurb, I was really intrigued. A bad boy known by his link to a crime family and a lawyer, I wasn't sure the author could pull it off because other story-line's I have read close to this just end up leaving me bored and rolling my eyes at the unrealness of it all. I'm so happy to say that did NOT happen with this book! I just loved this story so much but instead of rambling, maybe I should try to say why I liked it..

Things I LOVED:
-the sexual chemistry between Chelsea and Pacer
-Pacer's descriptive inner monologue (SO HOT)
-their playful banter (it made me smile so much!)
-how well put together this story was, it was definitely a page turner and the story just flowed so well
-Did I mention Pacer? ;)

I could go on and on about what a great book this is but instead of reading my rambling review you could be reading this amazing book!! I cannot recommend it highly enough and it has definitely made it's way onto my Top Favorite Reads of 2015.

☆☆☆3.5 Hooked Stars☆☆☆

Pacer is accused of murder. And he did it. He even told that to his hotshot lawyer. But she's determined to get him off. Maybe in more ways then one. But they have to get over the families hatred of each other.

I wanted to like this book. I really did. And I liked all the elements of it. Pacer is funny in a twisted way, Chelsea is smart and determined and even the secondary cast is intriguing. Even the story is there. But after about 50% it felt rushed, like everything happened off page and you just heard about it. And the ending was perdictable. If you're a fan of star crossed lover fan then this will be the book for you. Sadly I just wasn't a huge fan.

My BWBFF absolutely nagged me to read TJ Hamilton's Thyme series. she told me how wonderful the stories were and how Hamilton's engaging writing style and brilliant characters had her hooked and crying for then in big snivelling gasp. I dutifully took my BFF's emotional and passionate critique with due notice. Flash forward, and whilst Defending Pacer *spoiler alert* has no moments to induce snivelling sobs, I find myself ADDICTED to TJ Hamilton. Hamilton writes about my home city of Sydney Australia as the setting for her story. Her characters are enigmatic, polar opposites and I was not sure if I loved or hated Pacer Fratelli in the beginning, but by the end of the story it was clear - what's nt to love about him.
Hamilton weaves her tale with clever plot twists, and some hot and intimate scenes. I found Pacer's scoping out of his "Honeybee's" unit very alpha, possessive and well written. I note that notion of finding forgiveness and redemption and it was captivating and compelling to read how she explored these themes with the main and peripheral characters in the book.
I found Hamilton's writing style left me captivated and compelled to binge read on the story and I completed it in record time, but left feeling satisfied, rather than experiencing a book hangover. Hamilton covered a lot of ground in Defending Pacer and I feel she concluded appropriately giving the story justice and leaving the reader satisfied. Love! Love! Love it.

* Gifted for an honest Review*

So this read was a difficult one as at first, as I really did not like Pacer one bit... TJ has written Pacer as a gritty no holds barred gangster, with no hint of remorse to what he does... and some of his actions were at my limit of 'OK'.

He want's what he wants's and he gets it his way, and at first his way really - I mean REALLY freaked me out! I have notes on my kindle saying...??? ... omg did he really just think that!!! ... OMG he didnt just do that did he!!!!

BUT I know TJ has a gritty side, she tells it how it is, and because I loved her other series I continued... SO PLEASE if you buy and start reading... and get to that point too, my advise is Carry On, you will be glad to push through the initial 'OMG' moments.

Now Chelsea POV was much easier on the moral compass - shes a woman that has lived and breathed Law all her life, the only daughter of a Supreme Court Judge, her Mother an Editor... she is focused, determined and wins in court, But Defending Pacer is going to turn out to be her most difficult decision she will ever make. I mean she is going to have to either follow her heart or her family's ways, and its a big choice to make.

By 39% I was getting hooked and did not want to put the book down..Ms Hamilton Blew my Panties off!!!

As Chelsea delves into the details of the case against Pacer, we begin to see that there is more to this case than a Gangster murder, Yes Pacer is a 'What you see is what you get, Full on Mafia Killer', but above all he is an Italian Gangster... Loyalty , Familia, these are the True Beliefs that Pacer lives by. He is the head of the 'Family Business', but if you cross him - its the last thing you will do, and you will regret it...
