Bad to the bone…in all the right ways
A brilliant civil lawyer, David Hennings has always been the outsider—at odds with his wealthy family, shunning relationships, defying convention as a sexy leather-jacketed biker. Which is why sculptor Amanda LeBlanc agrees to his request to reconstruct a skull from a cold case murder. The instant heat between them is scorching.
But once Amanda takes the job and gets too close to the rebellious attorney, her carefully balanced life is upended by a series of methodical attacks. Someone doesn't want her to finish the job. Now David will risk everything not to lose the woman he unknowingly put in jeopardy.
David and Amanda find themselves thrown together by David's mother to try and solve a cold case involving the buried skull of a young woman. Amanda is hesitant to do a reconstruction on the skull as she is it brings back memories of her mother who did that for a living before taking her life. But she can't help but want to do whatever she can do find out who the victim is and bring her family peace. However, someone doesn't want Amanda to do the reconstruction and causes a series of events that they hope will lead Amanda to quit. David feels the need to protect her and in the process falls in love with her. These two are attracted to each other from the instant they talk on the phone and I could feel the chemistry increase as the story progressed. I also loved David's mom and how she pretty much manipulated the pair. Recommended if you enjoy romantic suspense that is heavy on the romance and a bit lighter with the suspense.
