After a frightening scare, Charlotte meets dark, brooding man named Marcus. Even though he was part of the group of men that were harassing her, she can't help but be fascinated by Marcus. "He was one hundred percent purely, terrifyingly male." (28)
Against her own will, Charlotte, a lawyer, is forced to defend a man accused of killing his fiancé.
Story had a bit of a slow start and kept consistent in its drawling pace. While the writing was pretty good, I couldn't help but feel that the story was saturated with complexity and a few too many characters. I guess the story was divided into two parts―one focusing on Charlotte's dark intrigue with Marcus and one involving the sinister side of the judicial system. Although each contained a mild level of interest, the two just didn't coincide into a well-uniformed plot.
All in all, I just wasn't pleased with it.
