This novella series box set includes:


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.


His role on an anti-counterfeiting task force earned NYPD Sergeant Gabe Townsend the catch of a lifetime--tough as nails but sexy as hell Jo Pomeroy. The woman has a body that drives him wild and a way of attracting danger that's making him crazy. And her relentless pursuit of an elusive criminal has his protective instincts in overdrive.

Jo didn't get to be a hotshot attorney by giving up easily. Her high-end clients count on her to keep knockoffs of their luxury goods off the streets. Distractions are the last thing she needs. Especially six-foot-three, hard body calendar-worthy distractions.

She failed once, letting a smuggler slip through her grasp. Next time, he'll have nowhere to run. A lead takes Jo and Gabe to a small town where not everything--or anyone--is as innocent as it seems. Making this bust could be the biggest break of her career...but at what risk to her newfound love?


Sun, fun, and Jo Pomeroy, the sexiest, most-driven attorney around, await NYPD Sergeant Gabe Townsend in Los Angeles. A trip to the West Coast is the perfect vacation--he won't have to hide his relationship with Jo from the New York anti-counterfeiting task force, and he can finally enjoy some overdue time-off with the woman of his dreams.

Jo makes undercover deals for fake merchandise, but her feelings for Gabe are all too real. Unfortunately, she isn't the one on vacation, and while she can't wait to get her heartthrob alone, she also can't say no when the mayor of Los Angeles asks for her help in ridding the city of illegal knockoffs.

Being too dedicated for her own good backfires when Jo ends up on a killer's hit list. Gabe wants Jo to back down; she's not about to. As the danger escalates, so do their feelings for each other. All Jo's ever wanted is to expand her task force nationwide. Now, with her life on the line, Jo must decide if heading the taskforce is worth sacrificing it all, including a future with the man she loves.

Justifiable Cause is an exciting romantic suspense series comprised of three books. Jo Pomeroy is an attorney who is working with a task force to stop knock-offs. Gabe Townsend is an NYPD Sergeant who is carrying out the raids. These two may be on the same side but the butt heads regularly. Both are stubborn and determined. Will they ever play nice? Jo is such a feisty woman. I admired her. She finds Gabe sexy and trusts him, but she won't let him push her around. Gabe is attracted to Jo. He wants to keep her safe. How can he get her to realize that she's putting herself in danger? It was enjoyable to watch these two bicker and it was even more fun to see them become lovers. I liked these two. These characters are interesting and they won't back down. The setting adds to the excitement with its dangerous and risky situations. The action is non-stop and the unexpected twists add to these highly intriguing stories. I was hooked and couldn't put this book down. The ending wrapped things up with a bang. I loved how Jo and Gabe dealt with their relationship and the kingpin behind the knock-offs. Adrienne Giordano had me on the edge of my seat with her interesting characters, their passionate romance and the non-stop action. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

Justifiable Cause Romantic Suspense Series Box Set by Adrienne Giordano Three action-packed novellas starring a lawyer and a cop…Gabe and Jo are perfectly matched and a whole lot of fun to read about as they work out who is selling high end counterfeit merchandise, deal with a murderer and fall in love with one another. THE CHASE: Jo and Gabe have been working together for several months before this story begins. Jo is intelligent but impatient and this can get her into trouble. Gabe is a more by the book sort of guy and wanting to keep her safe is not easy. They locate the main importer of the fakes and then he disappears so… THE EVASION: The story picks up six weeks later with a tip that leads Jo and Gabe to North Carolina in search of the importer that got away from them in New York. With threats, a bomb and growth of their relationship before they head home victorious this is another fun read. And, at the end of this story Jo is asked to go to Los Angeles to help them set up a team like the one in New York so… THE CAPTURE: 3 weeks later Gabe is on his way to spend a bit of vacation time with Jo. Jo, being Jo, has managed to get herself put in the crosshairs again by being the only witness able to identify a murderer. With a vacation interrupted, a bad guy to apprehend and bikers to deal with the couple are kept busy throughout the story. There is a HEA ending that might lead to more in the series or not but it does lead to Jo and Gabe heading on together as a couple. Thank you to the author for the copy of this work. This is my honest review. 4 Stars

Jo demands to be on all the busts, the hunt and the catcher only to find the counterfeits have her in their sites leaving Gabe pulling his hair out and talking to his self.

At times this was full of suspense that held you on the edge as these two go head to head matching passion as well as tempters. It was very entertain keeping me glued to the pages to see what would happen next. When I hit chapter nine the author turned on the humor. I have to admit I totally lost as laughed myself silly. At one point my husband gave me that look that said CAN YOU TURN IT DOWN. Humm I guess not when the next sentences kept me rolling with tear almost in my eyes. I have learned a woman should never leave home without her shoes! The Capture This is the end to a three part series that is full of action you are going to love it.

The Chase: Jo is driven and so is Gabe. They have been working together for months and they have had such a stormy relationship. Now, however, everything has changed. Someone has targeted Jo, which isn't surprising since she charges in to every situation without thinking first. Gabe is trying to be protective, but Jo doesn't want anyone to protect her. Sparks fly constantly. The Evasion: Jo and Gabe are at it again. They go to South Carolina to find the bad guy and end up in trouble again. Jo gets strapped to a bomb and they nearly blow up a small town. Will she ever learn? The Capture: Jo is in LA trying to set up a program for counterfeit goods.

The Chase: Gabe and Joanna are on a task force to track down counterfeit merchandise for one of Jo’s clients (she is an attorney). They are both determined, driven, and want things to run their way. Problem is, neither of them will back down. The story was very interesting to me because it isn’t a common plot that I have run across, so I was engrossed in the story from the beginning. When you throw in two strong personalities, a few bad guys and a lot of great dialogue between the main characters, you have an entertaining story that is hard to put down. Adrienne does a really good job of setting up this series. I look forward to reading more about Gabe 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! The Evasion: As the follow up to The Chase, I can tell you that The Evasion had me even more engaged. I love following the same main characters in a series and getting to know Jo and Gabe even more was quite the treat. Watching them work together since they have acknowledged their attraction for one another was icing on the cake! While I recommend reading The Chase first, you could still pick this one up and enjoy it. The Capture: After reading an early copy of this, I have to say, it is the best of the series! I absolutely loved watching Jo and Gabe's relationship continue to move forward in this one. I also enjoyed the suspense aspect and wrap up of the series. It all ended great in my opinion! If you like romantic suspense, give this series a try.

Fun, sexy, fast moving set of short stories by a great author. The 3 part series kept me interested & engaged & I really enjoyed it. The interaction between Jo & Gabe is feisty & loving, & I love that they are both strong individuals that give & take to make the relationship work. Interesting story topic too. I'm usually not a fan of short stories but this one being three parts that I read all at once made it seem like a book so it didn't bother me. Love Adrienne Giordano & look forward to whatever her next book might be. Given a free copy for an honest review by author
