Book Review: Broken Promises

At first I didn't like the main character. I kept wanting to smack him upside the head for being such a dumb man. I kept getting angry with him, being motivated by money and lust, not love.

When you read a novel, you really have to not so much like the main character, but understand why he's doing what he is doing. This is part of the reason why I tend to read mystery novels written by women. I just don't get men. I'm just sayin'!

 This is how I felt in the beginning. After things started falling apart, I got it. Then things began to get interesting. I like his writing style. He's obviously a lawyer, but he manages to create believable, unlikeable characters and a great plot!

Broken Promises (Fiction / Legal Thriller) 

Jack Adams is as disciplined as they come. And at age 35, he has earned the trust of his mentor and boss and been handed a delicate case for the daughter a major client. If he handles this right, his partnership is all but guaranteed. After he wins a big hearing, Jack sees the finish line in sight. But his case takes an unexpected turn when his client has other plans. Seduced and manipulated, Jack struggles to unravel the truth while he is forced to fight for his job, his law license, and even his freedom.

I actually prefer protagonists that are not too likable. It makes them more interesting for me

Sounds intriguing. I too like thriller/mysteries with legal&/or medical backgrounds. :)
