Über dieses Hörbuch

Workaholic Detective Aiden Carlisle isn't looking for love - and certainly not at the law-enforcement seminar she reluctantly agreed to attend. But the first lecturer is not at all what she expected.

Psychologist Dawn Kinsley has just found her place in life. After a failed relationship with a police officer, she has sworn never to get involved with another cop again, but she feels a connection to Aiden from the very first moment.

Can Aiden keep herself from crossing the line when a brutal crime threatens to keep them apart before they've even gotten together?

Contains mature themes.

Jae

Jae grew up amidst the vineyards of southern Germany. She spent her childhood with her nose buried in a book, earning her the nickname "professor." The writing bug bit her at the age of eleven. For the last seven years, she has been writing mostly in English.She works as a psychologist. When she's not writing, she likes to spend her time reading, indulging her ice cream and office supply addiction, and watching way too many crime shows.

    Abby Craden is a fabulous narrator as always. The book deals with some serious emotional aftermaths of a sexual attack and was written really good however I just feel it was a little too long and just kept going and going

    This book should have come with a trigger warning. NOTHING in the description prepares you for the almost immediate and very descriptive rape incident that takes place. I couldn’t make it past the first few chapters.

    I enjoyed this book just as much as, if not more than, I did the first time. The characters are strong yet vulnerable and Jae takes her time to develop the trust between them. Very well written. After reading her newest books right before my re-read of this one though, I think she's come a long way with more casual, natural English dialogue. Some of Conflict of Interest reads a little more formal than what one would expect. But it didn't take away from the story; just something I noticed.

    I cannot even express how much I wanted to love this book - and how much I expected to love this book. So giving it a two star rating feels wrong and disappointing on multiple levels, but I just can't justify anything higher. I normally love Jae's books, and I was so stoked about the premise here. Lesbian cop with a huge chip on her shoulder about her past! A hurt/comfort storyline! Big Issues discussed that normally never make an appearance in lesfic! And as soon as I started reading, I couldn't help but dig the threads of Law & Order: SVU, which I enjoyed (having always had a crush on Olivia). Aiden is a lot like Olivia (down to her backstory as being the product of rape), and Kade reminded me a lot of Alex Cabot. So I was pretty primed to love this story. And for the first third of the book, I kept expecting to love it. And then my interest waned and never returned.First off, this book gives an all new meaning to slow burn. I don't like instalove, but I also don't like it when it takes hundreds of pages for the characters to do anything except make maybe googly eyes at one another. I know that there was a lot going on in Dawn's life, but I just didn't feel a relationship building between the pair at all until almost two-thirds of the way into the book. And to get there, we had to slog through a lot of very intense legalese that really didn't interest me at all. When the relationship finally did happen, it didn't feel natural; it felt rather forced to me. I think that it would have felt much more organic and right if it had been allowed to develop more in the first two-thirds of the book, rather than keeping it on the back burner until after the trial was over, and then forcing it to the forefront.The writing that I am used to loving just wasn't there. I read that this was Jae's first book in English, so I am sure that definitely had a part to play, but I read the second edition, so I was expecting a lot more, well, Jaeness there. Instead, it just felt choppy to me, like a lot of different pieces had to be pulled together to form a not-so-good-looking crazy quilt. The trial timeline seemed really off to me. The jury delivered their verdict in like thirty minutes, which means that they barely had time to do anything except go back to the deliberating room, say "yep, he done it all," and then return to disclose the verdict. There wasn't one holdout on any of the charges? The defendant faced multiple charges, including some that might have required more than just a couple of seconds of thought to his guilt or not (three counts of rape, for example, except I don't even think that the other two testified? How does that even work?), so I found this to be very unrealistic. And what in the heck happened to the sentencing part of the trial? There was all of this buildup, and then nothing is mentioned about the perp afterwards. Aiden was just like, oh, well, if I know Kade she'll go for the max. And that's it. Did he get the max? How many years is he serving?There also felt like there was a lot of action packed in gratuitously toward the end, with little value. For example, Dawn's car is broken into and pretty much destroyed. Even the cop investigating it said it seemed "personal," like the person had been angry at Dawn and deliberately attempted to get at her. And nothing happened about this. Who did it? Why did they do it? Was it someone who was pissed about the trial? About the fact that Dawn was dating Aiden? No one knows. No one cares, either, because as soon as the car was in tip top shape, it was never mentioned again.Another example - the ex one night stand of Aiden's who approached Aiden and Dawn while they were shopping. What, exactly, was her purpose? She had two lines and pretty much served no purpose at all except to demonstrate that, yes, Aiden slept with women before Dawn was around. Which we already knew, sooooo...again, what was her purpose?I'll be reading the next book in the series, mainly because I already bought it. Plus it has Kade in it. <3 I just hope that it is a better read than this one was.
