Sex crimes Detective Aiden Carlisle is slowly getting used to being in a committed relationship with Dawn Kinsley—a relationship that isn’t always easy since Dawn is not only a psychologist but also a former victim in one of Aiden’s cases. Aiden’s private and professional lives collide when Dawn’s newest patient gets in trouble with the law. Will she be able to stay objective enough to solve the case without pushing Dawn away?

The same case also throws Deputy District Attorney Kade Matheson’s well-ordered life into chaos. In the last few years, Kade has taken case files and law books, not lovers, to bed. She has been focused on her career, but now the case forces her to finally face her attraction to women. She suddenly finds herself with two secret admirers, but which one is more dangerous—the threat to her life or to her heart?

My View:

Dawn and Aiden Part Two

While this is a follow up to Conflict of Interest it is also a perfect stand alone. Months have passed since the trial that put Dawn’s attacker away. She and Aiden are still getting used to being a couple. Aiden is having some serious self doubts. In the mean time Del has decided to pursue DDA Kade even though Kade has never been involved with a woman. Suddenly Kade has more than one admirer and this one wont play nice. To make matters worse Dawn’s new client has ties to Aiden and Dawn, ties that no one is sure what to do with.

I love a series where the main characters in the previous book play a part in the sequel. After reading Conflict I wondered what would happen to these women. I was so grateful to be reunited with them.

I liked the new twists in this book. There were three main storyline in this saga, separate yet intertwining. Each of them interesting and intriguing. I loved watching all three unfold and play out. I liked watching all of these amazing women struggle to overcome their insecurities and emotions.

Jae writes beautifully and it was not long before I was totally immersed into the book and reality slipped away. I was happily lost for hours without realizing it. She is so descriptive and writes on such an emotional level that you could not help but to become involved with the character’s lives and care deeply for them. There is a part three and I am so excited about it!
Thank you Jae.
