Cheating Justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano is the second book in their Justice Team series but it can easily be read as a standalone. I won an Audible copy in a Justice Team Facebook contest. Caroline Foster is a Type A personality and the "perfect" FBI agent because she follows the rules without question. She is a strong and independent female but plays it safe always to keep her career at the FBI. Mitch is a Alpha male that doesn't flinch at crossing the line to bring justice to the bad guys. He's been on the run for a year after hitting his boss at the FBI and now his two best friends have been murdered. To make it worse for him, he is now being accused of one of those murders. This book had it all in my opinion. The pace of the book was fast. The twists and turns of the plot kept me guessing all the way to the end. Politics, corruption, gun running, and conspiracies abound. The research that was done to show the chain of command was evident as the story unfolded. I never knew what was coming next. The secondary characters were integral to the story every step of the way. I hope to see Brice, an ex-ATF agent now blogger, in a future book because he was so much a part of this story. The romance between Caroline and Mitch was sweet, honest and hot. Their banter made me smile often and their honesty with each other made me sigh with happiness as their relationship developed. The narrator did a good job for most of the story in distinguishing the different characters and there were a lot of characters who had dialogue in the story. I only got a little confused at the end when there were so many characters speaking. The bottom line is that I loved this book. If I could, I would give this book more than 5 stars. I have now purchased book one, Stealing Justice, so that I can get to know Greystone Justice better and find out how the team was created.

J: Just under 100 pages left and so far just not enough excitement or suspense, although there is some potential. This story needs to pick up pretty soon. I am trying to hang in there and give it a chance, but I don't know.

Fast Paced, Page Turning Suspense When I was offered an ARC of this book in exchanged for an honest review, I was thrilled. I loved Stealing Justice and could not wait for more of the characters. Cheating Justice did not disappoint. Mitch and Caroline were an excellent match for each other, both at work and in their personal life. The external plot was fast paced and kept us moving forward, a quick page turner. Mitch is on the hunt for his friend’s murder when another friend is killed. Now, Mitch is on the run from the people who want to cover up the first murder by accusing him of killing his other friend. Mitch is working with Justice Greystone on the sly but its not enough access. So he contacts an old girlfriend in the FBI, Caroline, to help him. Caroline plays by the book and has been burned by her relationship with Mitch in the past so she is understandably hesitant to get involved. But her innate sense of justice sees the coverup and the framing of Mitch and both of his friends for criminal activities and she can’t help but get involved. Being attracted to Mitch does not help her situation one bit. The external plot focuses on guns for sale to Mexican drug lords and the coverup at the highest levels of or government. It’s ripped from the headlines. The story moves quickly and keeps your interest from page to page, while the romance develops naturally and over the course of the book. I loved the pacing and the characters in this story. For me, Brice was a great addition and I hope to see him in future books too! Great read!

I loved the first book in the Justice Team Series (Stealing Justice) and I have been anxiously awaiting Cheating Justice. It was worth the wait! I was sucked in by the first chapter and I couldn't put it down. The chemistry between Mitch and Caroline was great! The suspense and plot twists kept me on the edge of my seat. In the back of my mind I keep wondering if similar things really do happen in the political realm. The story seemed very realistic. Great read!

This exciting, sizzling series is gaining momentum with book two. When Mitch's two government agents best friends are murdered, he knows a conspiracy is happening. The first, Tommy, was accused of being dirty during an ATF-FBI mission in New Mexico. His other friend, Kemp, was killed in a park right after meeting Mitch to discuss Tommy's case. Mitch doesn't know who to trust, but he starts with SWAT sharpshooter FBI agent Caroline, with whom he shared a hot night and a previous adventure. Caroline can't believe she is helping Mitch again, when the last time nearly cost her job, but she still has feelings for him, and as soon as she tries looking at the case files, she is in trouble. With the help of Justice Greystone and his secret agency from STEALING JUSTICE, as well former ATF agent turned blogger Brice, the group starts to uncover a web of illegal guns, cover ups and political schemes. Everyone they talk to is suspect.  Mitch and Caroline trust each other, though, and start to admit their feelings and chemistry are long term. Giordano and Evans return with more smart dialogue, strong heroines, and well paced romantic suspense. Readers will want to read the first one also, but it is not necessary to enjoy this strong second one. I received a copy of this book in advance in exchange for honest reviews, and it did not disappoint.

4.7 Star Review - Cheating Justice Mitch has been hiding out for a year as he is wanted by the FBI. After one of his friends is murdered and framed (or so he believes) he meets with another friend late one night to discuss what could have happened. When that friend then shows up murdered also Mitch is sure someone is trying to cover something up. When later Mitch is listed as the prime suspect in the second murder he knows someone is out to get him. Mitch contacts his old friend Special Agent Caroline Foster to help him solve the murders of his two close friends. The agency is saying the first guy that was gunned down was dirty. Mitch knew him well and knows that is not the case. In order to help Mitch solve the murders she will be risking her career. Is solving this case worth the risk? Is it fair of Mitch to expect Caroline to risk her career? Can Caroline help Mitch solve the murders? Even if they solve the murders will that clear Mitch as he was wanted by the FBI to begin with? Or are they both in over there head? Is Mitch even worth the trouble? Lots of twists and turns in this story. You never know really who to trust. Keeps you turning the pages until the very end!! Mitch and Caroline have great chemistry and are both very strong characters. At times I was pretty sure Caroline would have hit Mitch if she could have!! Can't wait for the next book in this series.

I loved the first book in the Justice Series by this writing duo, but WOW for book two! The chemistry between characters Mitch Monroe and Caroline Foster was so tangible I could practically feel the heat jumping off the pages. Add in the intense plot line and this book had me quickly turning pages well into the night. This is a must read! Can't wait for the next book in this series!

Cheating justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano had me hooked from page one. It had a well-developed plot with Mitch being framed for murder. At times Mitch and Caroline acted haphazardly. But their actions led to a lot of thrills and excitement as they sought answers. The progression of the story just kept me on the edge of my seat as I waited to find out who was behind the government cover up and the reasons behind it. The corruption within the agency was obvious and the pieces of the puzzle were constantly joined together. However, early on, there wasn't enough information for a predictable ending. The story was paced well. It started out slow but steady. And the pace along with the intensity of the action increased as time went on until the shocking conclusion. Overall, Cheating Justice was a thrilling read that I would recommend it to fans of romantic suspense novels. Rating 4.5/5 I received an e-arc from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

In Cheating Justice (Justice Team #2) by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano, former FBI agent Mitch is now a fugitive trying to clear his name after being framed for a murder he didn't commit. When two of Mitch's long time friends and fellow agents are killed, Mitch knows something big is going on and he is determined to find out what. Now he has not only his name to clear, but murder's to solve and a conspiracy surrounding his friends death to uncover. Caroline is an FBI agent, and a sniper for the SWAT team. She is also a former friend and colleague of Mitch's. After a hot one night stand with him that she's determined to pretend never happened, everything started to go wrong and Mitch disappeared. Caroline still dreams of him, and remembers his touch. When he takes the risk to approach her for help, Caroline is very cautious. But Caroline wants to do what's right...even if it means risking her career. Suddenly on the run with Mitch, they race against time to uncover a huge governmental conspiracy, seeking to redeem not only Mitch, but his friends. Can they do it though? With danger surrounding them and time against them, the chemistry they felt in the past is still sizzling. Mitch will be happy when it is all over and he has Caroline. He wants her back, as much as he wants redemption. Can he have it all though? Or is it too late? Cheating Justice is a fast paced, suspenseful romance. Misty and Adrienne kept me on edge, never knowing what would happen next, and who to trust. Caroline and Mitch are both strong characters in Cheating Justice. I really like how they had a strong past connection that was never truly severed, and I liked how they come back to each other with more than one purpose even as Caroline resists. They are different, yet their goals are the same and their sense of justice strong. Not to mention the powerful chemistry between them that heats up the pages! Their interactions are realistic and at times quite entertaining. Misty and Adrienne give us a host of secondary characters in Cheating Justice who all play important roles in pulling the story together. Brice, a conspiracy theorist blogger, is a strong secondary character who will spend a lot of time with Caroline and Mitch. I really liked his character and the way he takes part in Cheating Justice with Caroline and Mitch. Misty and Adrienne have obviously done a lot of research to write Cheating Justice, and their writing, plot, and explanations have an incredible sense of reality to them. The pace of Cheating Justice flows smooth and is easy to get pulled in to. With serious suspense, a great chemistry and connection between the main characters, and some humor interspersed throughout, I would recommend Cheating Justice to any romantic suspense reader.

This book had everything that I love in it – tons of action and suspense, lots of plot twists and turns, and a hero and heroine that had the sparks flying off the page. The story pulled me in from the first page and had me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. Add in the great cast of supporting characters, and this book really did have everything that belongs in a romantic suspense novel! Mitch and Caroline were such a great pair. Knowing she can’t refuse him, Mitch enlists Caroline’s help to uncover the truth behind the murder of his childhood friend who was killed while working undercover as part of a joint task force. Their investigation leads them through a web of lies, half-truths and cover-ups that point to the top levels of multiple governmental agencies – and ultimately stirs up a hornet’s nest of trouble which puts their own lives at risk. I really loved the mystery in this story. There were so many interwoven parts that it kept me guessing and second-guessing for the entire book just who was involved and the motivation behind their involvement. With a plot laced with such intricacies, I was impressed with the authors’ ability to go into the level of detail required to keep the story realistic, but at the same time not overwhelm me.  I loved Mitch and Caroline together. Their verbal sparring had me laughing and their chemistry was off the charts. I loved watching their relationship take form and was really rooting for them to find their way to each other without losing themselves in the journey, and I was not disappointed with how things turned out. The supporting characters were great - I just loved Brice and how he interacted with Mitch and Caroline. Grey and Teeg were awesome, and I can’t wait to go back and read the first book so I can get more on their story. I loved everything about this book and can’t wait to go back and read the first book, Stealing Justice, and look forward to reading the next book in the series. I was given a copy of this book from the authors for an honest review.

The second book in the Justice Team series (book one: Stealing Justice) definitely did not disappoint. Mitch and Caroline made an awesome team (a renegade fugitive from justice and a type-A, by-the-book FBI sniper) and their banter was fantastic. Somehow Caroline’s threatening to shoot Mitch just never got old. ;) Caroline and Mitch have a past–they worked together for the FBI, before Mitch and Grey (the hero of book one) got themselves in trouble and Mitch became a federal fugitive. That earlier Mitch and Caroline even shared one unforgettable night–a night each is convinced that the other did indeed somehow forget–the night Mitch has referred to as “the-night-that-never-happened” ever since. Now Mitch’s two best friends are dead–one set up for a crime Mitch knows he didn’t commit–and Mitch himself is wanted for the murder of the other. He needs Caroline to help him clear their former coworker and friend’s name and to help him get a life back. No pressure, right? Fortunately, Caroline is totally the woman for the job, and the woman for Mitch…even though she attempts to fight it for the two-thirds of the book. The world needed a Mitch Monroe support group. A program. Somewhere women like Caroline could go to save themselves because she wasn’t just about to fall of the wagon. She was about to dive off head first. Twelve stories. Onto cement. Fortunately, they manage to actually communicate through all the snarkiness and misunderstandings and wow, they’re a team–and couple–to be reckoned with. They also find an awesome sidekick in a former ATF agent-turned-government whistleblower and blogger. With his help they uncover a massive conspiracy that reaches into the highest levels of the U.S. This book has it all–action, suspense, drama, romance–did I mention I’m loving this series? Can’t wait for book three! Rating: 4 stars / A- I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

AWESOME BOOK! This is the second in the "Justice Team series". I highly recommend both Stealing Justice (book1) and Cheating Justice. They are great FBI/Private Sector books with lots of suspense, action and of course romantic interests. The books are written in a way that keeps you on your toes with twist yet make you laugh and smile at the same time. In Cheating Justice we get to catchup on the team from Book 1 (Stealing Justice) and that is always a plus. The women in the series are strong and can hold their own against the tough FBI/Investigator males they work with and love. In Book 2 our hero is on the run fighting to clear his name and return to the real world. When his closest friends are killed he has to get help from the one gal he can't get out of his head after a mind blowing one night stand. (What he doesn't know is she has never gotten him out of her head as well). Trouble is, she is still 100% FBI and he's a former FBI guy that's on the run. Helping him just might cost her the job of her dreams or possibly gain her the love of her life. Highly recommend!

This book hooked me in from the beginning. Mitch is an FBI agent on the run he has been framed for the murder of his friend while he is trying to figure out who killed his other friend. He contacts a friend in the FBI and is able to get her to help him, even though she is furious with him for not contacting her for almost a year. Mitch and Caroline have a history a hot and steamy history. Caroline knows that by helping Mitch this time it would mean the end of her career. She knows he is not a murderer and needs to know who is framing Mitch for murder and who killed their mutual friend. The corruption runs all the way to the top, can Mitch and Caroline get the evidence that they need before they are arrested or worse murdered? Snatch it up if you love an action packed read.

Former FBI agent Mitch Monroe is off the grid. He's a hunted man. Two of his close friends are dead and he's being framed for their murder. He hears rumors of a government cover-up. He needs inside help so he contacts Caroline Foster, his former FBI partner and lover. If anyone can help him find the truth it's her. I loved Cheating Justice. The tension and passion are off the charts in this well told suspense novel. Mitch and Caroline are a powerful couple who compliment each other. They will face any obstacle to protect each other and their country. The secondary characters are just as commanding. Would our government institute a cover up to protect the powerful and the greedy? Don't miss Cheating Justice. I was blown away by this amazing story. This was a roller coaster ride filled with danger and intrigue. Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano outdid themselves.

Awesome Series!! Misty and Adrienne have done it again! This is book two in the Justice Team series, and it is just as good as the first book! This book can be read as a standalone; however, I recommend that you read both books in the series because they are both awesome! Mitch is a former FBI agent who has been hiding, since he punched his former boss who is pressing charges. Mitch learns that his friends have been murdered and he is now being framed for their murder. He asks FBI agent Caroline for help. But last time he asked for Caroline’s help he almost ruined her career. They must work together to find out why his friends were killed and fight the passion they still have. This book has romance, humor, mystery, and kick ass females. I can’t get enough of this series. I can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out.  A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Fantastic writing makes this suspense romance an action packed page turner!!  I just loved the sparks and chemistry between Mitch and Caroline.  They had a rocky past that makes it hard for either of them to be free with their feelings this time around. Not to mention they are running for their lives and dealing with government cover-ups and all the danger that comes with that territory! The romance was very well done and the perfect steaminess to go with the danger and suspense! So suspenseful (have I said that enough?! LOL) and engaging that you will be on the edge of your seat, looking over your shoulder, waiting for the next surprise to come at you.  I just can’t praise this enough, it was a nail biter of a story.  These two authors know how to banter and interact well! They perfectly throw humor in just the right spots that you smile and laugh with the characters. Then they throw you down a roller coaster ride of emotions with them as the characters deal with the betrayal and danger.  I have to agree with the other reviewers – Brice was a fun addition, a great secondary character! Grey, from the first Justice Team Book, is back and in perfect form along with the government higher ups that you meet in the first book.  I wish there was a way to give this one 10 stars! I love exciting stories filled with intriguing characters.  I received this book for an honest review.

If you haven't started the Justice Team series you better get to it because the books rock. I love the suspense in this one. Watching the characters piece the puzzle together. Some twists they didn't see coming. In this one we get to see Mitch's story and see if he can bring justice to his friends murder and clear his own name, but in order to do that he needs the help of the feisty Caroline. He almost ruined her career once now she has to decide if he's worth it the second time around. While trying to find the truth the passion that once flared comes roaring back. Can these two make it work with Mitch on the run and someone out to get them wanting to keep the truth buried.

I loved this book. Get ready for an edge of your seat adventure. Cheating Justice is written to keep you guessing to the very end, with twist and turns that make it fun as you try to solve the crime with characters who will either end up dead or heroes of the nation. After a friend was killed while on a case and labeled a dirty agent, our hero and heroine risk their jobs and their lives to prove his innocence, no matter how high in the government the trail leads. But are they willing to trust enough to risk their hearts too? As bullets fly and chemistry flairs to a burn, it was hard to put the book down. Suspense. Romance. Intrigue. Mystery. Government cover-up. It has it all. Get ready for a long night of reading.

A collaboration by two great authors have produced another well written story with plenty of intrigue and suspense as well as an ongoing sexual attraction. Jobs and lives are on the line as a government cover-up starts to unravel. Mitch and Caroline search for information as this mystery comes to light. Interesting characters in an exciting storyline that was hard to put down and keeps you guessing from beginning to end. Well worth reading! Received copy for review

LOVED IT! Cheating Justice is an amazing, fast paced adventure featuring two of the minor characters from Stealing Justice. Ex-FBI agent and on the lam crime-fighter Mitch Monroe wants to find out how his best friend ended up dead with rumors that he had gone rogue.  Knowing that the rumors can’t be true, he turns to his other best friend Kemp who still has a position in the White House only to discover that the White House already has a plan to call Executive Privilege!  How can a border issue in New Mexico demand Executive Privilege.  Before Kemp even gets out of the area, he is murdered and of course Mitch is the chief suspect. Turning to Justice Greystone for help, he forms a team with a former AFT agent who is now a watchdog blogger and the woman he walked away from, FBI agent Caroline Foster.  Their desire for justice is barely exceeded by their desire for one another. The pair push through unbelievable odds aided by the ex-AFT agent. This mismatched group leap full force into a dangerous search for the truth.

This book took excitement to the next level! Mitch Monroe is on the run. He's lost his job, and now he has lost his friends. Both were murdered, and he is the main suspect for one of them. He gets help from his former co-worker, and one night fling, Caroline to figure out what is going on. They had no idea the situation was going to be so complex that they would be going up against some very powerful people. Right from the beginning, this book screams exciting! The mention of Executive Privilege had me intrigued immediately, and Mitch, Kemp, and Tommy were so close, you know they had a big story already, and this was going to make it bigger. Caroline and Mitch are so much fun to watch. I love how entertaining they are, and the little games they play with each other. However, one of my favorite parts in the book is when they are completely honest with each other. You know it isn't easy for either one of them, so that scene packs an emotional punch. Caroline kicks serious butt! I absolutely love that she is awesome with a gun. I have no knowledge of any kind of gun, but the way the book is written, I was kind of sucked into Caroline's passion for it. Great writing with that!  I did read book one in this series, so it was terrific to see Grey in action again, and to get a peek of him and Sydney. The couples in this series are nothing short of amazing. Once again, so much thrilling adventure and action is fit into just a few days, so the book is non-stop adventure! Towards the end, there is a lot of discussion about the Justice Team, and I think it perfectly describes what makes these books so great. They are tackling very unusual problems that no one else can handle, and they do it while working outside the lines. It's unpredictable, and fresh, and I love it! You never know what the Justice Team is going to do next, and that's why I can't wait until book three comes out!

Cheating Justice is the second book in the Justice Team series. This was a fabulous read and I absolutely loved it! I have to say it had me from the moment I picked it up. I love any book that deals with the Military, FBI, CIA… Mitch Monroe was running from so much and Caroline Foster was someone he wanted to run to. Mitch and Caroline launch into a mission to discover who killed his childhood friends. They deal with all levels of the Government as they try to solve the murders. This was a fast paced action-filled romantic suspense novel that had enough twists and turns to make me want to know what happened next. Each scene flowed flawlessly into the next. I loved the interaction between all of the characters… It kept me on the edge of my seat and I can’t wait for the next installment. I would like to disclose that I received a copy of Cheating Justice in exchange for a fair and honest review.
