I am so excited to bring to you this awesome review by my blogmate, Candy. If you have not read any books in the Justice Team Series, by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano, you must start. They are stand alone books so why not start with Protecting Justice? See what Candy has to say about it…
Fallyn Pasche fixes problems for a living as one of the best spin doctors in the U.S. She’s used to handling other people’s problems and solving the vast majority of them. When her twin sister, Senator Heather Pasche is found dead in her D.C home, Fallyn immediately goes into fix it mode. When she discovers an encrypted tablet in Heather’s safe, Fallyn begins to wonder if there is more to her sister’s death and she calls the Justice Team for help. Tony Gerard isn’t sure he still wants to be a cop after the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, a man Tony saw as a second father, was murdered on his watch. Taking a hiatus from his cop job, he accepts a temporary assignment with the Justice Team and finds himself neck deep in political intrigue as he helps Fallyn investigate her sister’s death. Will they solve the mystery behind Heather’s death? Can Tony and Fallyn mix business with pleasure?
This was my first time reading a Justice Team book. I sat down on my day off and intended to read just a few chapters. The next thing I know it’s dinner time and I have spent the entire afternoon reading. Then because I didn’t want to waste valuable reading time cooking something, I actually ordered a pizza and kept reading until I finished. That’s how good this book is.
What I loved most about this book was all the political intrigue. I am a current events junkie and this was right up my alley. While I hope what happened in the book never occurs, it is a plausible scenario that was well thought out by the authors.
Tony and Fallyn were a hoot to read about. Two type A personalities falling for each other is bound to create some serious sparks. These two generated enough steam to make any reader sweat. I also really enjoyed how Fallyn helped Tony see that the Chief Justice’s death was not his fault.
Protecting Justice is the fourth book in the Justice Team series but it can be read as a standalone. Evans and Giordano weave a masterful tale of suspense with two strong leading characters that drive the story. Any reader who enjoys a great romantic suspense should read this book.

As the premier political spin-doctor in the U.S., Fallyn Pasche can fix any problem–except her own. Her twin sister, Heather, a United States Senator, has been murdered, her father is barely speaking to her, and someone is after coded files Heather hid in a private safe. In order to decode the files and figure out what happened to her twin, Fallyn turns to the Justice Team. What she doesn’t expect is the sexy bodyguard who shows up needing a little personal fixing of his own.
Tony Gerard sees failure every time he looks in the mirror. The former Supreme Court police officer lives with the knowledge that the Chief Justice—a man who was like a father to him—died on his watch. Now he’s sure he can’t protect anyone. When his first assignment for the Justice Team lands him in the media spotlight, working side-by-side with the country’s foremost political fixer, Tony wants to run the other way. But Fallyn’s devil-may-care attitude and tantalizing beauty bring out all of his protective instincts.
As Fallyn and Tony peel back the layers of a government scandal that threatens to bring down the most powerful man in the world, sparks fly along with the intoxicating danger. Desire and passion escalate with their perilous search for the truth as they find relief in each other’s arms from their respective demons. When an unexpected enemy puts Fallyn’s life on the line, Tony is forced to face his own failures in order to help her conquer hers. But will he once again fail to protect someone he loves?
