Attorney Hope Finch worked hard to get where she is as an attorney with a top law firm in New York and hopes to make partner within a few years. Hope had a very rough upbringing that she used to not only help her work through the tough rigors of academia and work, but also she built a wall around her heart for protection. The wall was due to an ex-boyfriend who betrayed her trust and therefore Hope decided she would be married to her job so she keeps other people out of her life. Of course that was before she met Gabe. The way she meets him doesn’t exactly instill the number one trait she looks for in a person and that is trust.
When Hope travels to a small town for a case, Hope figures her work long hours have finally paid off. However, that all goes south when people start coming after her to do her physical harm in order to find out what she knows about a computer chip in her possession or is it?
With tense moments, some well-placed humorous scenes, Rachel keep readers such as myself entertained all the way till the end of the book. The twists and turns in the plot kept me guessing as to who the powerful antagonists were and how Gabe was going to keep Hope alive. Hope doesn’t rely on anyone but herself in all areas of her life and her facing danger head on makes protecting her rather daunting. The next installment is titled, Devoted Defender with a third and final book to be added to the series in the near future. So watch for Rachel’s novels and then enjoy the well-crafted high suspense tales within the covers of her books!
She caught my attention just a few pages in with an initial shock and kept it until the very end. I really enjoyed the legal theme to the book. I haven't read very many books written from a lawyer's viewpoint in the Inspirational or Christian genre and especially liked knowing that Rachel is a lawyer herself. It made the story more believable - at least from the office and courtroom aspects.
I really liked Gabe and how persistent he was on watching out for Hope. But there were a few aspects of his character that were a little hard for me to believe. I won't go into details and spoil the book for anyone though.
Hope is one of the more determined characters I've read about in a while and I loved her tenacity! I especially loved how she did whatever she wanted to in spite of what Gabe said or did!
I really related with Hope throughout the story because I am a city girl through and through. I have never been to NYC but think it would be awesome to live close enough to work to walk everyday!
I really enjoyed the organized crime, FBI, courtroom parts of this story. They made for an intriguing storyline. And the romance between Gabe and Hope was a great addition to the story without adding any filth. I loved how clean this story was. In my opinion the romance moved fast but I know Dylan had a limited number of pages and it moved slower than a mainstream story would have.
I can't wait to read more from Dylan.
I have already ordered book 2
