Series: Vested Interest #6
Author: Melanie Moreland
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2019
When love turns to hate—that’s where I come in.
I’m Halton Andrew Smithers, attorney. Hal to my clients and friends.
Messy divorces, deadbeat dads, runaway wives, cheating partners—I handle them all.
I know the seedy side of love, and it isn’t pretty. I avoid emotional attachments—I’ve seen all too often when hot passion turns to frozen tundra.
I satisfy myself with helping people behind the scenes. It gives me a sense of satisfaction that completes my life.
Until she enters it and everything I believe is turned upside down.
She fills a void I never knew existed, and I know without her, my life will never be the same again.
For the first time, I want to try.
But am I strong enough?
Absolutely FANTASTIC! I've devoured each book in this series and they've all been great, but this one is, emphatically, hands down, my favorite. I love it when a character who's so jaded against love is the most surprised to realize that they went and did the very thing they were so adamant against, and we get that with Hal.
There's no denying there's chemistry between Hal and Fee, and the fact that Hal is enemy number with Fee's soon-to-be dickbag ex makes the story just a bit sweeter, in the whole "in your face" way. Of course, since Hal isn't used to feelings, he's eight kinds of confused, but swears up, down, left and right that he's not a "forever" kind of guy. Maybe not previously, but that was before Fee!
As per usual with a Melanie Moreland Vested Interest story, there are a few twists thrown in just to keep everything flowing, but goodness, it's also plenty swoony and a bit emotional as well. I gotta say, this entire series is perfect for binge reading this summer, trust and believe that!
"Join Hal and Fiona on their journey towards finding love with one another in this beautifully written, emotionally charged addition to what is a fantastic series.” ~ The Book Whisperer "This book was amazing, Halton was everything. I think I started falling in love with him before the end of the first chapter.” ~ Carol’s Reviews Goodreads "Two cynical hearts are about to discover there is no logic, when it comes to falling in love. The heart is the deciding factor and we're all just along for the ride. Moreland has my heart on a string and I'll gladly continue to give her free rein.” ~ Isha Coleman Goodreads
