Love Over Logic is the second book in the Desert Monsoon series by Diana Hicks, a suspenseful romance with great potential for entertainment. Meet Attorney Emilia Prado whose life has been reduced to fear and hiding after the murder of her father by a local mobster. Her life changes when her cousin seeks her help in leaving her husband, a drug lord. Emilia sees the most suitable moment for revenge and teams up Dom Moretti, an indefatigable lawyer who has had a powerful crush on her since law school and whose shady past haunts him. While Emilia is determined to get revenge on the man who killed her father, will Dom beat the lure of the darkness of his past and redeem himself? Follow this story of an irresistible attraction, of love and darkness, and a light that floods the heart of the reader.

Diana Hicks is a skilled writer and her gift for plot comes across powerfully through this narrative. While the plot is deftly structured, it is the strength of the conflict that makes the narrative irresistible. The reader is introduced to characters that are humanly flawed and existentially broken, and it is interesting to follow them as they navigate the psychological and emotional conflicts that drive the narrative. The characters are well developed and the backstory so ingeniously crafted that it spices up the narrative without distracting readers. The prose in Love Over Logic is crisp and enticing. This author is a mistress of her genre and she knows how to create the suspense that keeps the reader turning pages, with points of view that are clearly written and focused, and emotional scenes that grip the reader strongly and keep their attention.
