Jada McLean is about to get married in nine days, when she walks in on her fiancé in a little more than a compromising position. Days later, she’s on a trip that she intends to be relaxing and a prelude to her fresh start, when she runs into the rude, obnoxious, but gorgeous Jonathan Kole.
Jonathan Kole is San Francisco’s newest District Attorney. When he finds himself deeply attracted to a stunning beauty, he has no idea that she’s about to get into BIG trouble with the law—and he’ll be the one presiding over her trial. To make matters worse, his father is the lawyer representing her in the high-profile case.
When a series of events force them together over New Year’s weekend, Jonathan’s feelings and ethics will come into question, while Jada comes to terms with the fact that she is falling for the man that will be responsible for attempting to put her behind bars… Little do they know, they're both about to fall into a whirlwind so deep, it will send both their lives spiraling out of control.
Rebecca Rohman is a wife and designer currently living in the Northeastern United States. She was a Sales Manager for a tourist magazine, and for many years prior, she was involved in marketing for a jewelry company, and later for a fine wine distributor.
About fifteen years ago, she started writing her first romance novel, Uncorked, just to purely entertain herself. It was not until early in 2012 when she decided to complete it and share it with the world. The story was published in February of 2013. Love, Lies & The D.A. is her second novel.
Jada and Jonathon.... This is one long story! So much happens that one cannot go into all of the details. You will be lost!
Here is a run down. Jada catches her finace having sex with her best friend on her desk. She dumps both of them and takes off to have some time to herself. Said fiance is found dead just a couple of days later. And who is the suspect? Yep, Jada. But she was three hours away. Doesn't matter.
In walks Jonathon. Jada didn't like him from the word go. He is pompous and stuck-up. But fate keeps throwing them together in chance meetings. Jonathon turns out to be the DA... The very DA that would try her case if charges are brought up.
So who does Jada's attorney end up being? This couldn't get better... Jonathon's father. That doesn't make things complicated, does it?
Secrets about her ex-fiance start to come out. He was not only banging her best friend... but others. He was also mixed up with some really bad people who he owed money too... Like any normal sleezebag, he was swindling money from Jada without her knowing.
Now it looks like whoever killed her ex may be after her. Plus the police are investigating her. At the same time, she and Jonathon try to deny their attraction to one another.. we know how well that always works out in these stories!
This book is well-written. It will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat for quite some time. My only reasoning for the 4 star instead of 5 star is I feel many parts were too drawn out and the monologues were jumpy. They didn't flow. It was almost like, She Jane. She Jane run. The dialogue parts were excellent though! Overall, this is a really great read!
