Rendahl has taken serious situations; divorce, infidelity, crime, and self-worth, and put a bittersweet twist on them. The situations are sad and has you shaking your head and saying, "been there, done that." Alissa seems like she could be your sister, or your friend. The could be you feeling of the story brings it close to home, and close to your heart. After Rendahl's last book I couldn't wait for this one. What worked for me was that the author wrote great characters I could relate to, and it was hard for me to put down. Also, the author had me rooting for the Butterfly Brigade. It was a great read and I liked how each chapter starts with a page from the Anger Management workbook.

Definitely a light beach read. Alissa Lindley takes her anger out on a fax machine when she finds out her husband is leaving her. The story is about starting over, in life and love, with lots of bumps and bruises along the way. ( )

Just the fax, ma'am.

Alissa Lindley didn't mean to take it out on the fax machine. But when your not-yet-ex-husband knocks up his girlfriend and your divorce is going worse than the next World War -- well, something's got to give. Unfortunately, Alissa's employers at the L.A. Public Defender's office take a dim view of the destruction of office equipment. Funny how that anti-workplace violence policy used to seem like a good idea, before she got fired. And the networking thing just isn't happening at her Anger Management class.

He was arrestingly handsome.

San Jose is the place for a fresh start -- it's home, and family and friends are eagerly waiting to welcome her. But her first job as a lawyer there has Alissa walking a high wire of complicated emotions. Her client is from the Butterfly Brigade, a group of justice-seeking (and interestingly tattooed) ladies who right wrongs as they see fit even if that means bending the law. The arresting officer, Detective Rodriguez, is so hot he should be illegal. But can Alissa trust her instincts again when it comes to love? Or will one wrong step send her new life crashing down?
