Deadly Proof (Atlanta Justice #1) by Rachel Dylan

Deadly Proof

Deadly Proof (Atlanta Justice #1)

Riveting new series offers legal suspense with a romantic twist
In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.
Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.
Determined not to make the same mistakes, he’s intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything—even murder—to keep the case from going to trial.
This is a new genre for me, but I'm really enjoying it! Deadly Proof is definitely as suspenseful as described. The characters are interesting and developed and the reader will find it hard to put down this book once begun! Personally, I didn't care for the amount of romance included in the book; I think a little romance goes a long way in literature (and film!) and find that it is usually overdone in contemporary fiction. However, I know most readers will not agree with me concerning this topic and will find Deadly Proof the perfect suspenseful mystery/romance! 
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
