There are a few times that a book is read that leaves me speechless at the end. This was one of those books. I was hooked from the beginning, trying to figure out what would happen next, what kind of turn was coming, and who really did it. To say I was on the edge of my seat is an understatement. The characters where so life like.
Henry was an a$$, but we have seen it before. The man fighting the love he obviously has for his woman. Win, a strong woman who know who she wants. sidelined by a little murder.. I loved how Henry gives in and the Monster of Manhattan does something he never does. Ask if his client did it. The end is oh so sweet, and also a very hard fought for HEA.
