Perfect Fling by Carly Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've found that I usually enjoy Carly Phillips' books and this was no different. I especially enjoyed the hero in this story--he has a tortured backstory that makes him emotionally vulnerable in many ways, but he's also a tough bad boy who's brave, kind, and honorable.
The heroine is a lawyer, sensible and smart, but strong due to having to stand up to her cop brothers and father, which makes her fun to read about. Her chemistry with the hero is sizzling and fun.
The story dragged a bit in the middle portion--I felt there were some things rehashed a bit too much, they became repetitive. Also, the villain was a bit psychologically disjointed to me. The villain did some things (and didn't do some things) that seemed unrealistic, maybe a bit contrived, even and especially considering the villain's motives and emotional state.
However, all things considered, it was an entertaining book with a great ending.
Thanks to Penguin and NetGalley for the e-ARC of this book.
