“Hardass” is a sizzling, sensational, series of courtroom twists, turns, highs and low regarding the murder case of a lifetime. “Hardass” is composed by the talented author Christina Saunders who dishes out a heart palpitating, riveting, erotic thriller among legal associates at Palmer and Granade law firm. This is a quick, sexy, intelligent read because it captivates the critical thinking processes of the reader.

Still waters run deep within Washington's stoic, no bull, and brilliant persona. This vibe entices every gender's mind and body. He is decadent.

This books theme and the author's writing style will have the reader's eyes glued to each and every line crafted by Ms. Saunders. She has a finely hone imagination. The flow of the story line, plot, resolution and various settings made me feel as if I was watching a TV series such as "Sandal". I enjoyed the undercurrents and challenges between associates, lead attorney's and the prosecutors.

The characters are well developed and exciting matches for BFF’s and lovers. Competition is often fierce and that energy maintains a wonderful dimension within the story elements.

Rowan Ellis’ high profile serial killer is the driving force that brings Wash and Caroline closer and perhaps, it may cause problems between other members of Palmer and Granade associates.
