Jackson Rivers has always bucked the rules—and bucking the rules of recovery is no exception. Now that he and Ellery are starting their own law firm, there’s no reason he can’t rush into trouble and take the same risks as always, right?

Maybe not. Their first case is a doozy, involving porn stars, drug empires, and daddy issues, and their client, Henry Worrall, wants to be an active participant in his own defense. As Henry and Jackson fight the bad guys and each other to find out who dumped the porn star in the trash can, Jackson must reexamine his assumptions that four months of rest and a few good conversations have made him all better inside.

Jackson keeps crashing his bicycle of self-care and a successful relationship, and Ellery wonders what’s going to give out first—Jackson’s health or Ellery’s patience. Jackson’s body hasn’t forgiven him for past crimes. Can Ellery forgive him for his current sins? And can they keep Henry from going to jail for sleeping with the wrong guy at the wrong time?

Being a fish out of water is tough—but if you give a fish a bicycle, how’s he going to swim?

Jackson and Ellery have a huge place in my heart. Like, it’s massive. And every time Amy Lane writes more about them and their many insane adventures, that piece of my grows and now it’s taken over. But, this is true of many of Amy Lane’s characters. So. Much. Love.

If you haven’t read this series yet, go right now and read it. I won’t wait for you, though. This book was just everything from the others added together for a Jackson/Ellery extravaganza of mystery, intrigue, hilarity, and fun. And yes, Billy Bob is just as perfect in this addition.

Without giving away spoilers, we get to cross paths with some old friends from yet another amazing series by Amy Lane. How great is that?!

With the new business starting up, things are busy for the pair. And when they end up taking a case that takes them for a ride, it ends up being quite the adventure.

If you couldn’t tell, I LOVED this book. I can honestly say that it exceeded my expectations and I’m so happy I was able to read it. Amy Lane is a brilliant writer and she let her talent out all over this book!!

Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
