Book Review: Reasonable Doubt

Reasonable Doubt: Volume 1 (Reasonable Doubt #1) by Whitney Gracia Williams: My c*ck has an appetite.

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a f*cking liar... (Although, that's a story for another day.)

As a high profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online.

My rules are simple: One dinner. One night. No repeats.

This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less.

At least it was , until "Alyssa"...

She was supposed to be a 27 year old lawyer, a book hoarder, and completely unattractive. She was supposed to be someone I shared law advice with late at night, someone I could trust with details of my weekly escapades.

But then she came into my firm for an interview—a college-intern interview, and everything f*cking changed...

 SAYS:  Reasonable Doubt gives us the short and steamy story of Andrew and Aubrey. These two are a match made in heaven. Having been burned in the past by reasons we still don't know, Andrew has a rule one night rule with all women. He has very little personal relationships with anyone but the illustrious "Alyssa" with whom he's created a sexually fun friendship with only via the phone and internet. The curiosity this dynamic builds for the reader totally satisfies. There's a slow burn happening and the anticipation makes for a fun reading experience. And, "Alyssa" matches Andrew blow for blow in funny snark and charming banter. Her character has secrets that we are privileged to know but Andrew is not. She's a total spitfire with him and I adored the fight in her. Both characters are charismatic and engaging. When "Alyssa" commits the ultimate betrayal in Andrew's eyes, flaming hot sparks ignite from the slow burning fire they've been slowly stoking. Even though Reasonable Doubt is a novella and quite short, it packs a mean punch. I'm excited to read the next installment to get more of these characters especially after that ending. Gah!
