Opening Arguments by Jacqueline Wade/ Review

Opening Argument

Jacqueline Wade

Romantic Suspense

Assistant state’s attorney Kate Campbell believes in truth, justice, and hard work. The youngest attorney in Cook County’s felony review division, she’s determined to make a difference—even if it means occasionally bending the rules. When a case forces her to work with the man she rejected five years earlier, she can’t help but wonder what might have been.

Ethan Bradfield spent the past five years rebuilding his life. Devastated by Kate’s rejection, he walked away from a promising legal career and the life he expected to lead. When an assassination attempt on his boss, Congressman Owen Brown, brings Ethan face-to-face with Kate, he’s not about to give up his second chance—regardless of the cost. 
Criminal defense attorney Blake Edwards battles with Kate inside the courtroom, but outside of it, he’s looking for a more intimate relationship. A rising star in Chicago, Blake gets what he wants—and he wants Kate. 

One dedicated female attorney, two tenacious men, one volatile case…Opening arguments are just the beginning. 

My Review: 

First let me confess I was given a copy of Opening Arguments by the author's representatives in exchange for a fair and honest review. Then I bought the kindle version so I could read it on my KINDLE and get away from my overly possessive computer who I call Hank. I am not as young as I once was.

That being said,I'll get on with my review. I rated the book as three stars. It was a fast and easy read, I enjoyed the plot and the main character, Kate. I liked the fast pace of the book. However, I am not much of a fan of love triangles, especially undecided love triangles. And in my humble opinion, the books ending left much to be desired. It was a very abrupt ending. Knowing it was volume one of a series, I should have been more prepared for that.

For a debut tale, first in a series, it's good and well written; it certainly leaves you begging for more and for answers! I am certainly anxious to see how the author continues with series. 


3 winks!
