A KISS GONE BAD - Jeff Abbott

I really like this author, but I LOVE this title! I am a sucker for a fab title and this one did it for me. Even more groovy, the smart dialogue, intriguing characters and steamy storyline is fab, too.

Whit Mosley is my kinda guy. He's trying to redeem himself with the career path his father chose for him. Whit is a judge in Port Leo, Texas. Under the robes he dresses like a beach bum. He can be found reading court law documents and books to help him become a better justice of the peace and investigator. He really is trying hard to make the right choices and it really comes home when the son of a state senator is found dead of apparent suicide and Whit finds himself on the path to discover the truth. He also finds more than he bargained for...drug traffic, pornography, con jobs.
My favorite character is Gooch....you'll have to read the book to meet him, but he is someone you'd want on your side in any kind of altercation. I have a crush....
Four gritty Texan beans...

Is this a stand alone book or part of a series?

Joy: I picked it up thinking it was part of another of his series set in Texas. Glad I found it, though.

Mary: It's the first book in a series. It's very good.
