Coworkers, acquaintances and former lovers know Rourke Kilpatrick as a dashing district attorney who doesn’t let emotions get in his way. If he breaks a heart or bends the law to prosecute a criminal, he does so without apology. That’s why he is the first person 24-year-old Rebecca Cullen calls for advice when the younger brother she’s been forced to raise by herself gets arrested on trumped-up drug charges.
To her surprise, Rourke returns her call, and displays a sympathy that seems totally at odds with his reputation. One night, their lips finally meet, and all Rebecca wants is to feel Rourke’s arms around her - forever. But is she the one woman to break through Rourke’s protective barriers, or is the man she’s falling in love with just using her to investigate a crime? Does Rebecca dare trust someone who has the power to destroy her family…and break her heart?

She has potential! :)
In the beginning the story and the narrators tone was a little over dramatic in everyday things - The narrator could have fixed it in her tone, and thankfully she did did later in the story. Despite the over dramatics, the story was enough to keep me reading.
The middle of this book was pretty good, the female lead Becky was soft, sweet, and hard working. The male lead Rourke was appealing in that hard to get way. There was tons of potential and the story had me really interested...
The last half of the story Becky was angry and Rourke lost all his appeal by turning into a lapdog... That was a bummer. The author also used the word "taut" too much.
Diana has talent as a writer, and potential to really become more. A different direction with the lead characters attitudes through the last half of the book could have made this a favorite.
I read so I can write
Way too much lecturing in the dialog between the DA and the girl to be romance and way to much background in the rest like all about the Baptist church etc, etc. Fiction should be fiction and non fiction should be non fiction
This book sounds like some of her other books which I enjoyed but I think the character development fell short on this one.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
This is clasic Diana Palmer but all of her books these days are starting to sound the same. He big scary intemidating man, she naive lil virgin who needs to be saved and taught about passion......okay have we done this enough allready. It was still a pleasent book but the story has been done to death now.
