Publisher's Summary

Sex crimes Detective Aiden Carlisle is slowly getting used to being in a committed relationship with Dawn Kinsley - a relationship that isn't always easy since Dawn is not only a psychologist but also a former victim in one of Aiden's cases. Aiden's private and professional lives collide when Dawn's newest patient gets in trouble with the law. Will she be able to stay objective enough to solve the case without pushing Dawn away? 

The same case also throws Deputy District Attorney Kade Matheson's well-ordered life into chaos. In the last few years, Kade has taken case files and law books, not lovers, to bed. She has been focused on her career, but now the case forces her to finally face her attraction to women. She suddenly finds herself with two secret admirers, but which one is more dangerous - the threat to her life or to her heart? 

Contains mature themes.

Great sequel

If you enjoyed the first book you will probably enjoy this one too. Kade got the focus that Dawn got in the previous book. My only issue with the story was the relationships seemed a bit too forced like they were trying to meet a quota, the Kade and Del relationship seemed rush but believable, but as a whole it conveyed this every woman on earth is a lesbian or bi vibe. Despite that it was great I kind of wish it became a long running series but I will settle for replaying it.

Worth it if you liked the first.

Why a 4/5? Eh. Because as much as I admired the story telling and Narrative performance, I simply wasn't overwhelmed by it as a whole. Also I spend a good period of time mildly frustrated with a certain part of the plot in the beginning. But overall it was still a really good book and made for a pleasant sequel.

Between Jae's writing and Abby Craden's narration, this is a must hear winner. I would certainly listen to another with this amazing cast of characters.

Delightful sequel

Can't wait the more stories about these folks. This book was very easy to listen to. Abby Craden brings these characters, richly developed by Jae, to life with her narration.
I highly recommend this Audible book.

This series was so captivating. I was hoping Book 3 at the end of Book 2 was a teaser of more to come...please continue.

Love these characters

I'm a new fan of Jae, and an old fan of Abby Craden! The other characters from Conflict of Interest get more attention in Next of Kin. Plus a bonus: the last 6 chapters are the novella that was written by Jae, focusing more on Cade and her mother, Sophie.
Highly recommend! Abby Craden is the best!

Family is often chosen, always a work of love.

I loved this story full of intrigue, growing emotions and coming into oneself. The characters dealt with life issues as they grew to understand themselves and love each other. It tackles the difficult topic of unconditional on so many levels. So artfully written, I loved this 2nd book and seeing characters develop. I love Abby Craden brought the characters to life in this magnificent audible listen.

Great package

I enjoyed this sequel (and novella) as much as the original and I’m now going on to more of Jae’s books as if they are as good as this I’m going to love them.

The characters are developed in a way that makes you care and there are some lovely laugh out loud moments mixed in with the mystery and romance - this is a great package of all my favourites.

Loved it.

Easy to listen too and delivered with passion. Characters believable and interesting. Can't wait to here more of the books by JAE.
