Leading The Witness is a sexy, swoon worthy romance bursting with sweetness. Another fantastic addition to this series! I’ve been dying for this book since Hunter first walked into Riley’s pub in a previous book. These two have chemistry that is off the charts! That chemistry turns into something much deeper now that we finally get their story.
Hunter has intrigued me for quite some time now. The sexy bearded lawyer hiding tattoos under his suits. I mean, who could resist that? Add in his kind heart and the man is delicious! I adored him and Riley together. They fit together perfectly making a couple that I quickly fell in love with.
When not reading, writing or daydreaming she can be found enjoying life with her three sons and family.
Chantal loves to hear from readers.
