Desperate Girls by Laura Griffin


Desperate Girls is a tightly wound, fast-paced romantic thriller that follows a desperate woman on the run as she hides from a killer’s symbolic revenge spree.

Defense attorney Brynn Holloran is right at home among cops, criminals, and tough-as-nails prosecutors. With her sharp wit and pointed words, she has a tendency to intimidate, and she likes it that way. She’s a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom, but in her personal life, she’s a mess.

When a vicious murderer she once helped prosecute resurfaces and starts a killing spree to wipeout those who put him behind bars, one thing becomes clear: Brynn needs to run for her life.

When the police come up empty-handed, Brynn turns to a private security firm for protection. But when she defies advice and gets involved in the investigation, even the former Secret Service agent assigned to protect her may not be able to keep her safe. With every new clue she discovers, Brynn is pulled back into the vortex of a disturbing case from her past.

As the clock ticks down on a manhunt, Brynn’s desperate search for the truth unearths long-buried secrets and reignites a killer’s fury.

I could not put this book down. It is fast paced, well developed, and has a lot going on. Brynn is a tough woman who is amazing at her job. She understands that when she doesn't do her job well, someone else's life may be disrupted. When a big case from her past comes back around, she finds herself being the hunted rather than the one to put a monster behind bars.

Brynn's mentor has been killed and now other people from a previous big case seem to be dropping like flies. Brynn isn't sure what to think or why. When her now boss hires private security, Brynn is less than thrilled. She hates to be told what to do – she wants to plan and continue on with her job and her life.

Erik is with the private security firm that has been hired to protect Brynn and her co-worker. Erik isn't sure what to think about Brynn. She is tough and doesn't take crap from anyone. He finds himself liking her. She is also very easy on the eyes.

Erik has to make sure that despite the distraction of having to protect Brynn, that he isn't so distracted that he misses the bad guy. Brynn has to look again at the case that helped make her career and with fresh eyes, things are just not lining up.

I can't wait to see what happens next and hope that there are a lot more from Griffin.
