Defending Justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano is the newest book of the Justice Team series, but can be read as a stand alone. Evans and Giordano are magical when they collaborate and the Justice Series is a must read for any romantic suspense fan. Each book has its own plot, new main characters, but past characters usually make an appearance!
Defending Justice is all about Jackie and Beck. They met a dozen years ago in college, had an amazingly hot spring break fling, and now defense attorney, Jackie, is trying to keep FBI agent, Beck, out of prison for murder. Quite the predicament they find themselves in. What I love about this story is how Evans and Giordano walk us through the process along with the characters. I always enjoy the mystery of solving a case, especially when a character is wrongly accused. The writing is so easy to read and it had me flipping pages almost faster than I could read them.
The romance between Jackie and Beck is sometimes a little awkward given their current attorney-client relationship, but was one that was rekindling and I couldn’t wait until the case was over. Beck was much more in tune with himself and his feelings while Jackie struggled to be tough all the time – it was a role reversal in my opinion and a fresh change from typical romance books. The ending scenes were some of my favorite because they happened once the case was over and just tied the book up nicely.
If you are looking for an entertaining romantic suspense, give Defending Justice a read. You will be thoroughly entertained from beginning to end!
