4.5 Stars Another winner by Misty and Adrienne. I could hardly put it down because the book had me on the edge of my seat. The action and story had me flipping the pages. It's a book that you hate to see end. Jackie and Beck were great. I loved the banter between them. Their shared history plays into this one and adds so much to the story. There was a twist I didn't see coming and it made me gasp. Misty and Adrienne do such a phenomenal job with this series. They deliver on great stories and characters. I highly recommend this series.

With just the right blend of romance and suspense, the writing team of Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano once again delivers another fabulous read! Add the fact that this is a second chance romance and I knew I wouldn’t be able to put this one down. Beck and Jackie were both great characters and worked so well together. Their past hasn’t left them on the best of terms with each other, but the attraction that burned hot on their first meeting is something that neither of them can forget. I loved how strong and driven Jackie was. She didn’t think twice when it came to rushing to help Beck, despite their past. Beck was such an interesting character and I loved that he practiced holistic medicine and was very health-oriented – not something you normally see from a hero. And he’s the total package when it comes to a hero – hot, alpha, and skilled. Like the other books in this series, the authors take the reader on the journey with the characters, uncovering clues and information as the story progresses, really making you feel like you are along for the ride. I also loved that they were able to do that with the relationship between Beck and Jackie as well – since they have a shared past we get to learn about their meeting and events in between, and I loved how that worked. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Justice Team book without getting spend at least a little time with some of the characters from other books in the series. I just can’t imagine a book without getting to learn what crazy t-shirt Mitch is wearing or what crazy stuff might be coming out of his mouth! This was a fast-paced read that was easy to get into and stay with from start to finish. The writing between the two authors is seamless, and together they have such a wonderful writing style and voice that everything, from the plot, to the dialogue, to the pacing, blended perfectly. Another great read I would highly recommend to anyone!

Absolutely loved! I've really enjoyed so many (okay...all) of the books in this series, but seriously, Jackie and Beck's story tops them all--second chance romance at its best! (Plus, as a bonus, Mitch shows up several times, wearing his trademark smart-aleck t-shirts. I. Love. Mitch. Even though I'd probably want to smother him with a pillow IRL. IDK how Caroline puts up with him...he's so...Mitch.) Jackie and Beck had me from the very first page, and I honestly didn't want to put the book down until I was sure that they'd not only survive everything that Ms. Evans and Ms. Giordano threw at them but that they'd also manage to find their HEA in the end. And oh my goodness, did they ever get things thrown at them--just when you thought there couldn't possibly be one more disastrous thing added to their very full plate, you found out just how wrong you were! Fortunately, the authors made everything all right in the end--but whoa, it was pretty tense for a while there, like for about 281 pages... ;) Defending Justice would work just fine as a standalone--Beck and Jackie's story doesn't at all involve any of the other stories in the series. Several of the other series characters show up throughout, but you don't have to have read their stories to enjoy them here. Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Defending Justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano is a winner in my favorites list. Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone without any confusion. I confess that I love this series and these two authors are powerful together. Jackie and Beck are an amazing couple together. She is strong, determined and a shark in judicial circles. Beck has found a home in the FBI as part of a Missing Persons team. His family history has kept him on the straight and narrow most of his life. He's also into holistic healing, herbal teas and healthy foods. They are the flip-side of the typical romance suspense genre. I loved it because they compliment each other and that makes it work for me. The plot was fast paced and complex as they search for the killer. There were so many possibilities as to why the victim was killed as well as who did the deed. I made many guesses and they were all wrong. I loved seeing Mitch Monroe stop by a couple of times. His t-shirts always make me laugh, as well as his attitude. It was also good seeing Teeg and Grey who rock at cyber investigations. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. All of the above opinions are my own.

Just when you think you've dodged a bullet and avoided having sex with your boss' soon-to-be cougar ex-wife who bought you in a charity auction, you are arrested in the middle of the night for her murder. And who strolls in to defend you - unannounced, unrequested, and unwanted - but an old flame from a fabulous, never-to-be forgotten weekend fling in college. And that's not the only big surprise, but you'll need to read this latest Justice Series book, Defending Justice, to find out. Defending Justice, Book 7 in The Justice Team Series by Adrienne Giordano & Misty Evans, takes off running and never slows down. Beckett Pearson is a former model and football star, and an FBI Special Agent. Jackie DelRay is a former prosecutor turned defense attorney, known for her toughness. Beck and Jackie have history both professional and private, secrets and animosity between them. Beck doesn't want anything to do with Jackie, but his career, and possibly his life, are on the line and she might be his one hope at staying out of prison. She needs to see justice done and is determined to save him. As always, the Justice Team promises - and delivers - a thrilling story packed with action, passion, danger, romance, snappy dialogue and a lot of humor. The scene where Josh walks in while Beck and Jackie are "at" her desk had me laughing. And I really want to meet Mini-Beck. The story is set amidst the Washington, D.C. backdrop of political alliances, greed, corruption and murder. It's fast-paced with suspense and twists that you don't see coming but with a satisfying resolution. The characters are well-developed and believable. Jackie and Beck are stubborn and at times reckless but oh, so likeable, and the tension between them, sexual and otherwise, sizzles. I am a fan of the Justice Team and highly recommend this latest adventure. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review; my review is completely honest and voluntary. Go to the website and read all the books. You won't be sorry.

LOVED this book! I literally couldn't put it down. This starts with a bang and keeps the fast pace until the very last page. I loved the characters and Beck and Jackie's story. The authors made me feel invested in their story and care about the outcome. Don't start this one too late in the evening or you'll be awake all night until you finish it. This one is a must read for fans of the genre. While this is part of a series, this is a stand alone novel, however, it's so good that you really owe it to yourself to read the whole series. Both of the authors are on my must read authors' list.

What a fantastic read! The story line is a roller coaster of emotion, full of suspense, mystery and sexual chemistry. The characters are unique, full of regret but charging forward toward their happily ever after. This is another great book by a very talented author. Don't miss out!
