Here is a run down. Jada catches her finace having sex with her best friend on her desk. She dumps both of them and takes off to have some time to herself. Said fiance is found dead just a couple of days later. And who is the suspect? Yep, Jada. But she was three hours away. Doesn't matter.
In walks Jonathon. Jada didn't like him from the word go. He is pompous and stuck-up. But fate keeps throwing them together in chance meetings. Jonathon turns out to be the DA... The very DA that would try her case if charges are brought up.
So who does Jada's attorney end up being? This couldn't get better... Jonathon's father. That doesn't make things complicated, does it?
Secrets about her ex-fiance start to come out. He was not only banging her best friend... but others. He was also mixed up with some really bad people who he owed money too... Like any normal sleezebag, he was swindling money from Jada without her knowing.
Now it looks like whoever killed her ex may be after her. Plus the police are investigating her. At the same time, she and Jonathon try to deny their attraction to one another.. we know how well that always works out in these stories!
This book is well-written. It will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat for quite some time. My only reasoning for the 4 star instead of 5 star is I feel many parts were too drawn out and the monologues were jumpy. They didn't flow. It was almost like, She Jane. She Jane run. The dialogue parts were excellent though! Overall, this is a really great read!
This is one of those books that grasps your attention from the very first pages and keeps you hooked until you reach the end. The story starts off with every girls worst nightmare. Jada had been planning and waiting for her waiting day. She's about a week away, counting down every last moment and checking off the last few items on her to-do list. When she gets back to her condo she walks in something no woman should, her fiance having sex with her best friend and maid of honor. Unfortunately for Jada this just get worse from her.
She rents a house down in Lake Tahoe to get away from things. She decides to head out to brunch at a beautiful resort, and this is where she comes into contact with Johnathon ( READ BELOW FOR THE FIRST MEETING). He is pretentious, rude and full of himself. And also happens to San Francisco's newly appointed District Attorney. As the days go on, they get thrown in each others paths on several occasions, and even though she can't stand his audacity she can't help but realize how attractive he is.
As Jada is attempting to come to terms with her now called off wedding, she receives even worse news. Her ex-fiance Richard has been murdered and Jada herself, is the prime suspect. Her amazingly awesome and lawyer brother Bobby swoops in and gets her the best attorney around; Charles Kole. Who just happens to be Johnathon's father. But the kicker is as she starts allowing herself to fall for Johnathon, she realizes that if in fact the case goes to trial, Johnathon may be the one who can put her in jail.
Honestly, this short synopsis that I just summarized, is just the tip of the ice berg in the action of this story. So much happens, that even if I tried to create an itemized list, I would not be able to. But the true aspects of this story that grabs your attention and does not let go is the characters and boy there is a huge group of them and they are just so enjoyable to read and get to know.
Jada herself is just a marvel. She is thrown one bad thing after the other and she somehow she survives each and every thing with class and dignity. She is a successful business owner, but is also caring and compassionate and strong. But she also has her very vulnerable moments that are sweet and touching.
Johnathon's character is one that grows the most. He is pretentious ass at first, but the sacrifices he makes to protect his family and then eventually protect Jada is just plain hot and swoon worthy!)
The action in this book is what keeps you reading. Yes this book is on the longer side, but honestly, each page is refreshing and fun and keeps you reading. There was never one point where I was like, okay I hope this books wraps up. My own real flaw with this book, was that I felt too much happened. I just wanted Jada to catch one break. No one should have to endure everything that she did.
I caution you the ending takes a turn that I did not see coming, one which made me shed several tears, but all in all it added to this amazing, action-packed story.
It is here that she meets the arrogant District Attorney, Jonathan Kole, and sparks ensue as they clash and Jada puts him firmly in his place. Jonathan is drawn to Jada's fearlessness and independence and is determined to get closer, just as Jada is determined to keep him away whilst she licks her wounds.
Unfortunately for Jada her life is about to take a turn for the worse as her now ex-fiance, Richard, turns up dead with a bullet in his head. The police believe that Jada is responsible for his death and Jonathan and Jada could end up on opposite sides of the courtroom, with Jonathan's father defending her.
This is an action packed story, with Jada being set up to take the fall for Richard's murder and the plotters stopping at nothing to make this happen. In amongst this is the developing relationship between Jada and Jonathan. Sparks fly constantly as two strong, independent people try to find their feet in their new relationship. Jada and Jonathan are two fantastic, strong characters, who draw you into the story. It makes an interesting dynamic having both the characters so strong but it works so well here.
'Love, Lies & the D.A' is a perfect blend of romance and suspense, with lots of twists and turns. It kept me on the edge of my seat trying to work out what was going to happen next and who was behind the plot. There are frustrating moments when you sit screaming at the characters as they bumble their way through their relationship trying to protect each other and there are sad, poignant moments. This is a brilliant read and one you won't be able to put down once you start reading it until the last twist has been revealed.
