Book Review: Desperate Girls

Defense attorney Brynn Holloran is right at home among cops, criminals, and tough-as-nails prosecutors. With her sharp wit and pointed words, she has a tendency to intimidate, and she likes it that way. She’s a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom, but in her personal life, she’s a mess.

When a vicious murderer she once helped prosecute resurfaces and starts a killing spree to wipeout those who put him behind bars, one thing becomes clear: Brynn needs to run for her life.

With no help from the police, Brynn is forced to take matters into her own hands, turning to a private security firm for protection. But when Brynn defies advice and gets involved in the investigation, even the former Secret Service agent assigned to protect her may not be able to keep her safe. With every new clue she discovers, Brynn is pulled back into the vortex of a disturbing case from her past.

As the clock ticks down on a manhunt, Brynn’s desperate search for the truth unearths long-buried secrets and reignites a killer’s fury.

I have to admit that I am a sucker for a well written romantic suspense and that I can't believe that it has taken this long to discover Ms. Griffin.  DESPERATE GIRLS has everything needed to keep you glued to the pages and holding on tight through all the twists and turns.

I just love Brynn!  She is a tough as nails defense attorney with her low-cut shirts and high heels.  And she's not a bit happy with being assigned a bodyguard team by her boss.  Erik is an utter professional.  His job is to be alert at all times to anything that might endanger his client.  He just didn't plan on Brynn who refuses to be cooperative unless he talks everything out with her first especially as she doesn't feel that she is in any real danger.

DESPERATE GIRLS is one of those books that I just couldn't put down.  There was danger coming from a new direction every time they turned around.  And the heat between Brynn and Erik was combustable.  The tension continues to build up until the shocking conclusion.  I highly recommend this book to any of my readers who enjoy the romantic suspense genre.  It's well worth the read!!
