She was his student.  Now he's her boss.Sometimes the best-laid plans are so much better when they go astray... Kay Rawley has plans. She might be the second child of an earl, but she wants to break away from her father's estate in New Durma. Intending to build a life apart from her family's name, becoming a lawyer was a bright, shiny object she just couldn't resist grabbing. Her classes are complete, and all she has to do is pass the bar to turn her internship at a Dallas Law firm into permanent employment. Kay's been on Audrick Van Buren's radar since the day she walked into his classroom two years ago. That admiration only grew when she came to work for his firm. But if there's anything he recognizes, it's a woman who's driven--and Kay is definitely one. It's all he can do to keep his distance and allow her the chance to come into her own. What Van doesn't know is that someone else is watching Kay, too, and if he doesn't step between them, that person might not only derail her career but threaten her very life. 

Meet the Rawleys.  A series of stand-alone romances, each following a different couple in this saga of life, love, family, and friends...

About the Author

When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.

Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning.  She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.

A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.

Justice For All is an entertaining read by Olivia Hardin. Ms. Hardin has delivered a well-written book. The characters are fabulous and lovable. Kay and Van were former student and professor, now they are coworkers at a law firm. When they develop a romance, Kay's friend Thomas turns stalker. Their story is loaded with drama, action, sexy bits, humor and suspense. I enjoyed reading Justice For All and look forward to reading more from Olivia Hardin in the future. Justice For All is book 2 of the Rawley Family Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

JUSTICE FOR ALL is the second book in Olivia Hardin's Rawley Family series. Justice For All's timeline seems to run concurrently with All For Hope which is the first book in the series. Both books are stand-alones and either can be read first without too much confusion with the overlapping stories. Justice For All focuses on Kay Rawley who is the daughter and second child of the Earl of Arrington, in Durma (a small European country) and her life in Colorado as a law student and an intern at a prestigious law firm. She happily finds her admiration for Audrick Van Buren, her once professor and now her boss (one of the partners in the law firm) is wholeheartedly returned. They begin their love affair slowly and tentatively, but it rapidly builds into something more. Despite their somewhat secretive plans for discretion to protect their professional relationship, they are found out as someone who is not at all pleased and Kay finds herself in grave danger. The romance in this story is well-written and the two main characters likeable. I liked the overlapping with All For Hope. My only criticism is I didn't feel any true danger because the "stalker" and the way he tracked Kay were easy to spot right from the beginning making the plot predictable which killed any suspense. 3.5 stars

Reviewed for Candid Book Reviews I have been getting into suspense romance more and more recently. Usually I am wary about them and have to be really sure, but something about this book just caught my attention. Olivia Hardin is a new discovery for me. Strong chemistry, great characters and unexpected surprises made Justice for All an enjoyable read for me. My one issue is that sometimes I felt Kay came across as naive. Her actions lead to some sticky situations. I understand her trying to prove herself. Outside of family connections but sometimes she drove me crazy.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I had high hopes for the second. My biggest disappointment was that I feel like I had just started reading it and it was already over. I liked the story line and the way the relationship between the characters grew, but I feel like everything seemed to happen really fast. Despite being a little stubborn in the first book, I really enjoyed Kay's character so I was excited to get to know her better. I liked that we got to go back to Christmas time from the first book and get to experience things from her point of view. There were multiple times throughout the book that I wanted to shake her for not seeing the signs with Thomas What to say about Van... I love the relationship that he has with not just with Mother but with his whole family. You can tell how important family is to him. I also respected the fact that he kept his feelings/attraction in check through being her teacher and boss. I was a little sad that we didn't get to see more of the rest of the Rawley family, but I'm hoping that they will show their faces again. I received a complimentary copy of Justice for All in exchange for my honest review. All opinions shared are 100% my own.

What can I say about Justice For All? This book has everything I want in a romance. The chemistry between Van & Kay was unbelievable! Perhaps it was partly due to the forbidden factor (first Teacher/Student, then Boss/Intern) but when things were finally on the table - whew! Watch out and keep your fans handy! The author certainly takes us for a ride on this one - so many emotions to go thru as we feel them right along with the characters! Skin crawling creepy stalkers for the win to make this just enough suspense but not take away from the romance factor. :sigh: I <3 this book. I could go on and on but I'm trying my hardest not to give too many spoilers! Check it out for yourself! Justice For All is the second installment in the Rawley Family series. Although it follows "Hope for All", it actually happens at much the same time. This is one of those books that you could definitely read as a standalone and there is absolutely no problem. If you choose to do that, you will be getting some spoilers should you decide to go back and read "Hope for All", so why not just read them in order? lol! *I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I was looking forward to this next book in the Rawley Family series by Olivia Hardin. I first got hooked by All for Hope, and Justice for All is a great continuation! I've read several of Hardin's book, and she always makes me care about her characters. For me, that is the key ingredient for a good read. Right from the start, I fell in love with Kay and Van. They are complex, sensual, funny, believable, likeable characters. This author writes description in such a way that I feel like I'm watching a movie. I love that about her writing style. Kay and Van are lawyers, and Hardin's explanation of the legal aspects of this plot are realistic without bogging down the tempo of the story. I honestly didn't want to put Justice for All down until I reached the satisfying conclusion.
