Book Review: Reasonable Doubt

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

A huge and very particular appetite: Blonde, curvy, and preferably not a fucking 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 fcking changed...

TeriLyn's thoughts: As a huge fan of Andrew Hamilton in books one and two of the series the anticipation of the secrets of his life being revealed in Reasonable Doubt Three was immense. Told from both Andrew and Aubrey’s points of view, those secrets reveal themselves showcasing unexpected sides of both characters. The writing flows easily across the pages giving the reader a fun and entertaining story. Andrew is a great hero, he comes full circle in the series with his wit, charm, and abrasive attitude making us melt on the spot. Aubrey as well really comes into her own in RD3 and her development made me proud of her character.

The story fell to three stars for me because the plot felt rushed and a bit forced. Certain aspects of events in the story were abruptly concluded. The plot travels through Andrews past off and on answering our questions while confirming and denying our theories however it felt perpetually stagnant and didn’t progress forward enough for what I’d hoped. When the dramatic arcs peaked the fall of the resolution didn’t feel natural to me but rather forced and fast. Circumstances with too much push/pull kept me from loving the story the way I loved the first two books.

Rating the story three stars doesn’t detract from overall opinion of the series and the characters or even this particular story itself. I loved moments in the story and adored the overall ending and full completion of the two characters. It’s a good book, entertaining and fun with drama and angst. It just didn’t have the wow factor the first two books did.
