Review & Giveaway: STEALING JUSTICE by Misty Evans & Adrienne Giordano

I really enjoyed this book.  The main characters Justice and Sydney were very believable in terms of their emotions and how they reacted to situations.  The sparks they struck off each other seemed plausible and real.,  Justice Greystone, a former FBI agent who is now persona non grata with the FBI, is the kind of tough, strong character that appeals to anyone reading romantic suspense. The secrets he has to hide make for an interesting story line as they are revealed.   He is not perfect, yet has the qualities that still make him a hero in the eyes of the reader.  Sydney, a woman who has secrets of her own, is the kind of heroine that appeals as well since she too is strong but not perfect.  Her generous heart when it comes to the lives of battered women will draw the reader to her character and allow them to forgive her illegal activities.

MistyEvans_StealingJustice_800pxWhat I found most appealing about the story is that for most of the book I believed the who done it revelation and I am hard to fool as most of the time I figure that out early on and just enjoy seeing how the author’s clues will reveal it.  However, in this case I was hooked for about 3/4 of the story until subtle clues led me to determine what the authors were after.

The sex and romance in the book were well done without too much detail and just enough sex to keep it interesting.  I liked some of the play on names used such as the Smoking Gun Escort Service, Front Range Security, Fresh Start Social Service Agency and the Polka Dot Confections bakery.  The names seemed to reveal the authors have a good sense of humor. I would like to read the next book that will come out revolving around one of the minor characters in the book, Monroe.  I hope it will prove to be as engaging and enjoyable as this book was.
