Nick Murphy is a lone wolf. 

Personal tragedy taught him there are only two things he can count on — his family and their ability to exact vengeance when the law has failed. They’ve created a lucrative illegal empire with little more than strength, fury, and most of all, silence. 

Alexa Nash is no stranger to tragedy. 

As the victim of a hit and run accident when she was in college, Alexa has spent years hiding her scars, both figurative and literal. Putting herself through law school was a way to help improve the justice system that failed her, a way to expose the system’s failings, make it better. 

Then she’s assigned to a new case — an investigation involving the Murphy brothers, a group of vigilantes hiding behind what only appears to be a legitimate enterprise. 

The only problem: Nick Murphy is dangerously intriguing, not to mention utterly and ridiculously hot. 

The feeling is mutual, but can a criminal and a prosecutor find happily ever after when they’re on opposite sides of the same battle — or is their love doomed to become a casualty of war? 

My Review:

The Murphy brothers are back! This time we are following Nick Murphy, MIS’s CFO, and Alexa Nash, the Assistant Attorney General. Nick is one hell of a man. He is handsome, athletic, protective and an overall family man. I honestly thought Rowan was going to be my favorite Murphy brother but I think Nick is winning me over. Nick wants nothing but to help others and fix broken things. Alexa is broken, even after years of a horrific car accident she is still reminded every day of the scars that were left behind from that difficult time in her life. Sure she looks like she has things together, but under all that, is hurt and pain that hasn’t healed. The more digging they each do, the harder it is going to be when they have to pull away. I was almost screaming by the end of the book because I just knew it would end on a cliffhanger. Boy was I right!!! All I can say is that Alexa is playing with fire. She is going to end up regretting the things she has planned. I will probably say this about every single Michelle St. James book I read, this woman KNOWS how to write. I honestly get so sucked into her stories so quickly and finish them in record time. Highly recommend this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read to anyone!

Thank you to Michelle St. James for sending me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review! So looking forward to Fair Game next
