Soon Alissa found out that San Jose really had changed while she was gone. But, there was no way she'd be heading back to LA. Especially now that her ex-husband and new wife had a baby. No. What she needed was a job and maybe a social life. What she got instead was a slow to start list of clients working as a public defender. Not what she was hoping for, but it did help to pay the bills.
But all that changed when the Butterfly Brigade formed. Alissa had her hands full keeping her clients out of trouble, and from being accused of crimes that were happening across the whole city by copycats. It seemed that every which way she turned there was a story of the Butterfly Brigade taking action and righting wrong-doing-rude-
thoughtless citizens. And in return, it landed her face to face with Officer Detective Rodriguez.
Trying to clear her client's name should have been easy for her. She was a lawyer after all, but Detective Rodriguez made her feel weak at the knees. And he was starting to hint that he wanted a relationship with her. But they were on opposite sides. So that would never happen, and should never happen. But she finds him irresistible and ignores the rules. Rules were made to bend sometimes.
But those same rules she not only ended up bending, but almost breaking when she stepped over the line to help a client.
Would Detective Rodriguez forget what she had done? Taking the law into her hands and acting on it was still wrong, committing a crime was against the law. Was what Alissa did worth risking not only her freedom, but her career and relationship with the detective, too? And just when things couldn't be any worse, Alissa has to bail her mother out of jail!
