    Desperate Girls

    WOW! This was a page turner and I am surprised my kindle survived it. Actually when I set my kindle down I had my phone in my hand reading because I just could not stop! From the beginning with a murder then immediately setting up security for Brynn and her team and the elite team from Wolfe Security who are charged to keep her safe when in Dallas for a trial. This is a fast paced story that did not disappoint in any way. The suspense was perfect and the underlying romance was outstanding. This author never lets me down and this one is one of her best. I definitely recommend this one. It is a standalone but I hope there are more books in the future with some of these characters! **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

    Thrilling and Romantic-best of both worlds

    When a killer escapes from prison, he seems to be on a quest to get revenge on those who put him in prison. Brynne, now a defense attorney was an ADA on his case. When the judge and a police officer are murdered, her boss hires an elite security firm to guard her and her coworker, Ross (also formerly an ADA on the case). Brynne doesn’t take this threat as seriously as she should, frustrating Erik, the head of her detail. The revenge issue is much more complex than it first appears. It is interesting how the author adds romance to this riveting thriller. I have just heard that this is the beginning of a series and if this book is an example, I will be reading them all!

    great twist

    This book has me all over the place now that it's time for a review. I just feel that something was lacking. I mean the chemistry between the H and h just didn't do it for me. I don't care that there wasn't much spice to it, it just didn't click for me. I did enjoy the mystery and the twist which were placed very well and kept the book interesting. I have to say the writing was good and it did keep me turning the pages with all of the action I just was left lacking. This is my first read by this author and it really was good enough for me to try another read in hopes of connecting with her characters. I love suspense with some romance which is why I am surprised this didn't work for me. However since I am in the minority I will safely say it must be me.

    Intense!

    Desperate Girls is a romantic suspense novel that starts out a little slow but steadily climbs to a heart pounding, edge of your seat experience! I was very much engrossed into this story and these incredibly strong characters. There are multiple storylines going on that all lead back to Brynn. Her defense of a teenager against a murder charge, while being heavily guarded against an escaped convict who she helped convict. This man is on a revenge rampage and going after everyone who helped put him away. With this threat against Brynn, her boss hires a security firm to keep her safe as she goes to trial on her current case. This introduces us to Erik. Erik is the lead bodyguard helping to protect Brynn as well as trying to help track down the escaped convict and eliminate the threat. Erik is very big on rules for the sake of protection but Brynn is shattering his control every step of the way. Laura Griffin is fast becoming one of my favorite Romantic Suspense authors. While some of her books are heavier on the suspense and less romance than I prefer, I've learned that she's a very compelling writer and I've loved everything I have read by her so far. I look forward to more from this author. ARC provided by NetGalley.

    Great thriller!

    When a judge is murdered in her own home, the past rushes in to confront Brynn. The suspect is an escaped prisoner that Brynn helped convict and law enforcement has every reason to believe he may target her next. Now she’s got a team of bodyguards interfering in her daily routine and a trial that demands her undivided attention. Added into that stress is her attraction to Erik who refuses to act on his own desires due to his job to keep her safe. Brynn was one tough heroine who had definite ideas and plans and no one was going to stop her. There were times I was afraid her choices were going to land her in deep water but fortunately that never happened. She was a bit brash and outspoken, a tough, experienced lawyer who fought for justice for her clients. Erik struggled to keep his focus on the case, on keeping Brynn safe and not on what he wanted to do to her. He was intense and stoic, an alpha hero without the over the top alphaness. He knew that a break in his concentration could cost someone their life, possibly even Brynn. This was a fast paced romantic thriller filled with suspense and mystery as well as a twist that was absolutely shocking. The characters were all well developed and the steam was what I would consider a medium heat. When they finally came together later in the story, it was pretty hot but there wasn’t a lot of build up to get to that place Secondary characters were everywhere and were important to the story. I enjoyed this book and the thriller feel to it with plenty of chases and close calls. I did feel that this couple needed more time together to connect but that was almost impossible with a serial killer on the loose. It was missing a certain “humph” factor that made me know this couple would work out and would be together forever and I really, really wanted to feel they were a forever couple. Perhaps an epilogue a few years down the road would have eased my concerns. However, I would definitely recommend this for the suspense/thriller elements as these plot points kept me riveted to the story. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Pocket Books. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
