Theo Angelis definitely puts the "hot" in "hotshot lawyer." Or at least, that's attorney Sadie Oliver's opinion. Even a simple handshake has her weak in the knees. If only there was time to explore the barely contained chemistry simmering between them ... But there isn't. Because Sadie desperately needs Theo's help. Her brother lies in hospital facing a murder charge, and their sister is missing. And even Sadie herself is being followed by unsavory looking characters. But Sadie's not about to take it lying down (unless Theo asks, of course). Her solution? To play an active role in the case, disguised as a law student. To anyone looking, Sadie will simply be another of Theo's male interns. But the heat in Theo's eyes never lets her forget she's all woman ...

I enjoyed the way Summers broke down and spread out the mystery across the three books. Not sure which Angelis brother is my favorite, but this heroine (Sadie) is probably my favorite from among the ladies. She annoyed me when she went off to confront the two top suspects, but she redeemed herself in how she handled the final showdown. That is definitely something I appreciated in the series: the active roles each heroine played in their respective showdowns. The characters were engaging, but the star of the show is the mystery. The emotional development wasn't particularly subtle and the relationships felt more chemical than anything else. The sex scenes were pretty hot, and I liked the twist that androgyny played in this one.
