Into this chaos strode the largest, most handsome man she'd ever seen in her life! Ash Thorpe stepped into the courtroom and took charge, not just of her defense but of Mia's heart. He was funny, kind, intelligent and charming. He had but one flaw in Mia's eyes: he thought she was a murderer!
How could she have lost her heart to a man who didn't trust her? Her life had been so simple 24 hours ago. Now she was confused and lost in a sea of insanity that only got more crazy by the minute. And the only man who made sense, who helped her wade through the complicated judicial system, didn't believe in her.
Ash had a thorny problem. It wasn't enough that he was trying to navigate the dangerous waters of a murder trial, he was falling in love with his client! To give in to his urges would be an unforgivable breach of ethics, but so would be giving less than his best! Ash and his team were running a mile a minute trying to come up with a strong defense, but his concentration was suffering from the emotional and physical responses that Mia's presence created. He might be able to save her in court, but would he lose her from his life?

Any additional comments?
Don't listen to the three 1 and 2 star reviews on Amazon, listen to the fifty-five 4 and 5 star ones. This is a really cute short story. Loved Ash and Mia, the story, all the secondary characters, the sexual tension that, eventually, led to some great sex. Loved the brothers, Ryker, Zander and Axel, can't wait to read their stories. Very entertaining.
As to the narrator: She was just ok for me. She read with no emotion at all and when a man talked in a "deep commanding voice" or in a growl or a sneer, whatever, it was just a little to feminine for me. She did a terrible job of lowering her voice to sound manly. There are 3 more books in this series and I'll read them all without listening. I usually like to read along while I listen but not with this narrator.
I would also like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review is the narrator. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion. Is he or she doing nothing but reading the book? Not changing his or her voice for the male and female voices? Is the narrator sounding the same whether she or he is reading a whisper spoken?
Most of us on AUDIBLE don't really care what the book is about. We want to know about the narrator! IMO..

An entertaining story about a sweet kindergarten teacher accused of murder. Ash, a high priced lawyer, is determined to get her aquited. Being very used to powering his way through a case finds himself off balance when she doesn't always see it his way.
Viv Williams did a wonderful job overall. She mixed the voices a couple of times but otherwise great.
