Overview

In this novella, hard-driving attorney Jo Pomeroy is as determined as she is sexy—in other words, a major pain in NYPD Sergeant Gabe Townsend’s butt. Working together on a high-profile task force charged with busting sales of counterfeit goods has been rocky from the start. And Jo’s penchant for trouble is as difficult to ignore as her spectacular legs.

The world of knock-offs isn’t as frivolous as it appears. The purses are fake, but the danger is all too real—and Jo seems hell-bent on putting herself in the middle of it. Her investigations have uncovered valuable leads for Gabe’s team, but they’ve also drawn the wrong kind of attention.

Now, she’s on the radar of a mysterious smuggler not afraid to use violence to evade the law. At the risk of their lives—and their hearts—Gabe and Jo must find him before he finds them.

Editorial Reviews

Fresh Fiction - Maria Munoz
"Adrienne Giordano has cemented her place on my list of must read authors."
Barnes & Noble - Lucie J
Review for A JUST DECEPTION

Ms. Giordano has done it again! Caught my attention and held it into the wee hours of the night. Monk and Izzy are fully developed characters that jumped off the page and into my, heart. They both have "issues" and work through them with the genuine ups and downs that happen in real life relationships. Giordano has an amazing ability to write true-to-life male characters warm my heart. The Private Protector series has a permanent place on my bookshelf.

    Gabe and Joanna are on a task force to track down counterfeit me

    Gabe and Joanna are on a task force to track down counterfeit merchandise for one of Jo's clients. They are both determined, driven, and want things to run their way. Problem is, neither of them will back down. The story idea was interesting because it isn't a common plot that I have run across, so I was engrossed in the story from the beginning. Throw in two strong personalities, a few bad guys and a lot of witty banter, and you have an entertaining story that is hard to put down.

    Gabe is referred to by Jo as "Mr. August" - the hottest month on the calendar. She and him have such intense chemistry that neither wants to act on because it could put an end to their spot on the task force. They try to ignore it but eventually give in. After they realize how good they can be together they try to maintain business as usual when they are on the job. Easier said than done. When Gabe has to save Jo's life he goes all ballistic and lets his emotions get the best of him by going after one of the people he felt was responsible. 

    Adrienne does a good job of setting up this series. I look forward to reading more about Gave and Jo and watching them navigate this relationship of theirs while they try to bring down the one of the biggest smuggling operations of counterfeit merchandise in New York. I highly recommend The Chase to anyone looking for a fun, witty, romantic suspense read!

    I got this in the "Mirth, Murder & Mystery" set. I tried to read it, but I just couldn't get into it. I finally was nice to myself and skipped it. If you want to read it get the "Mirth, Murder & Mystery" set, if you don't like this one at least you have other books to read.

    Just OK

    Despite the witty dialogue, the storyline was just lukewarm. Missing the suspense. Not really interested in next book. Bummer-- I really wanted to like it.
