A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don't call him the Jury Charmer for nothing - with his Southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he's a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross-examined by him.

I wanted to like the protagonist Stanton Shaw, but in the end I just found him frustratingly dense. He has absolutely no emotional IQ. He is a spoiled stubborn self centered male. Sophia is likable but I yearned for her to stand up for herself.
By the end I found myself yelling at the characters. In all it was not worth the read.
