Protecting Justice by Adrienne Giordano, Misty Evans

As the premier political spin-doctor in the U.S., Fallyn Pasche can fix any problem--except her own. Her twin sister, Heather, a United States Senator, has been murdered, her father is barely speaking to her, and someone is after coded files Heather hid in a private safe. In order to decode the files and figure out what happened to her twin, Fallyn turns to the Justice Team. What she doesn't expect is the sexy bodyguard who shows up needing a little personal fixing of his own.

Tony Gerard sees failure every time he looks in the mirror. The former Supreme Court police officer lives with the knowledge that the Chief Justice--a man who was like a father to him--died on his watch. Now he's sure he can't protect anyone. When his first assignment for the Justice Team lands him in the media spotlight, working side-by-side with the country's foremost political fixer, Tony wants to run the other way. But Fallyn's devil-may-care attitude and tantalizing beauty bring out all of his protective instincts.

As Fallyn and Tony peel back the layers of a government scandal that threatens to bring down the most powerful man in the world, sparks fly along with the intoxicating danger. Desire and passion escalate with their perilous search for the truth as they find relief in each other's arms from their respective demons. When an unexpected enemy puts Fallyn's life on the line, Tony is forced to face his own failures in order to help her conquer hers. But will he once again fail to protect someone he loves?

In Protecting Justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano, spin doctor Fallyn has not been extremely close with her twin sister Heather, nor her father. But when Heather, a US Senator dies unexpectedly, it is Fallyn who is picking up the pieces of a life cut short way too soon. In a short time, Fallyn becomes convinced Heather was actually murdered as more and more secrets come to light - some of them very dangerous...secrets someone doesn't want exposed. Tony is a (for now) temporary member of the justice team, on leave from his job as a supreme court police officer. He has issues and guilt of his own, but when he's called on to protect Fallyn from the press, his duties become much more serious as something sinister is simmering. Soon he is not only protecting her, but Tony and other members of the Justice Team are helping Fallyn untangle a web of secrets in a hunt for the truth about Heather's death. What they are discovering soon starts becoming political, involving much more than anyone would have guessed. As all this is moving forward, at the same time Tony and Fallyn are finding themselves becoming more and more personally involved as an attraction between them heats up... Tony is determined to keep Fallyn safe. They are both determined to find out the truth. Will this determination also help them find peace and future with each other, or will it be too late? Protecting Justice pulled me in from the start. I had as much doubt about Heather's death as Fallyn did immediately. The whirlwind adventure of fact finding, fear (of truths and unknowns), the frightening jeopardy Fallyn just might find herself in, and an unexpected chemistry between her and Tony really made for a book than entranced me and had me glued to the pages! I really liked Fallyn. She is a strong heroine, and her development through Protecting Justice is powerful and motivating. She is determined, brace, loyal, and very smart. She has a unique perspective that makes her stand out. She definitely has her own regrets and sorrows, but this seems to have worked to push her forward rather than hold her back. I think it takes a very strong person to do this, and she's someone I'd like to have not only on my side but as a friend. I really liked her determination and her ability to stand up to anyone and not be scared enough to back down (but have no fear inside I think she was scared...but she was mad enough that she carried on). I liked Tony a lot also. He is definitely not perfect, and he carries a weigh on his shoulders. Whether or not that weight is his fault, it is still there, affecting him, making him doubt himself. Working with Fallyn, and then being with Fallyn made me feel like he was in the right place at the right time. I felt like I could trust him to have my back for sure! Both of these characters are worth getting to know, and seeing them work together was great! Not only is the political world that we see and the underworld we don't see explored (and really opened my eyes, because you just never really know! The writing, the plot and the well developed characters made the plot very plausible). Sometimes book like this really open my eyes and I think wow, that could really happen, and this was one of them. Not only was the suspenseful plot, but romance can creep up on you when you least expect it and not always at at the best time! Filled with government cover ups, secrets, and threats, Protecting Justice has many layers to it that are slowly peeled awa

Another action based mystery to solve with the help of The Justice Team! There is never a dull moment when this team is brought in. Lots of suspicion is cast about as they try to figure out who murdered the Senator and what the ultimate reason was. It'll keep you guessing! High-end political fixer, Fallyn Pasche is devastated when she's called home to DC when her twin sister, US Senator Heather Pasche is found dead in her home. Fallyn finds it strange that her young, healthy sister is suddenly dead and starts a little investigating of her own. As turmoil swirls around her, she calls a friend for a favor and The Justice Team arrives to support her. Tony Gerard is at a bit of a turning point in his life. He's blaming himself for the death of the Chief Justice who was killed on his watch, and he's not sure what to do with his life at this point. He's filling in temporarily with The Justice Team, and is sent out as a bodyguard/security for Fallyn. As Fallyn's investigation starts turning up info that someone is willing to repeatedly break in to try to get, they turn up the heat to get to the bottom of this mystery. Will they discover who murdered her sister and why? And will this hot, sexy attraction between Fallyn & Tony lead to a future for the two of them?

Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano have done it again! Protecting Justice is a thrilling story full of danger and intrigue, with a fascinating cast of characters. Fallyn and Tony are two very stubborn individuals, and they both love to be in control. Naturally, when the two of them are around each other, there are a lot of fireworks. I was on the edge of my seat and holding my breath every time they were in danger, which was often. The exciting story is made even better with the fun characters, and how well they all fit together. They are perfect as a team and as friends, and I can't get enough of them.

I just love this series! This book keeps you on the edge of your seat and just grabs you to the point where you can't put the book down. The twists and turns in this one take you for a ride. I was pretty proud of myself because I figured out who the bad guy was. Go me! I absolutely adored Fallyn and Tony together. Fallyn is dealing with the death of her twin and her life she as knew it is now spiraling out of control. Lucky for her she has good friends because they bring Tony into her life. Tony is that big badass bodyguard that has a huge protective streak. Fallyn is no shrinking violet though she's pretty badass herself. She keeps Tony on his toes. As these two unravel the mystery revolving around her sister's death it brings the danger to their doorstep. Can they solve it before another death is added to the list? I love when the Justice Team get together because I always find myself laughing at their bickering and antics. I highly recommend this one you won't be disappointed.

Protecting Justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano is the fourth book in their Justice Team series. I love it when these two authors join forces. Their writing is seamless and I can never figure out which writer wrote which scene. They’re that good. Protecting Justice pulled me in from the start. The plot quickly unfolded and I found myself quickly flipping the pages trying to figure out who was behind Fallyn’s twin sister’s death. I was shocked to discover the role the President’s son played in the entire storyline. I loved Tony and understood his mixed emotions and lack of self-confidence when dealing with the situation. He dealt with a loss of his own and didn’t want to see Fallyn end up being hurt or even killed. Protecting Justice was full of suspense. Ms Evans and Ms. Giordano kept me guessing all the way up until the end. I can’t wait for their next book in the series. I’d like to disclose that I received a copy of Protecting Justice in exchange for a fair and honest review.

LOVED this book! Another winner by this talented author duo. In this book, Tony Gerard, who we met in a prior book, is called in to provide security for the surviving sister of a deceased congresswoman. Tony has his own demons and an overwhelming sense of failure, but he jumps in to help and quickly is smitten by the sister. What follows is a fast paced story as they investigate the congresswoman's death and start feeling threatened themselves. Add in a sexy romance and you have a must read novel for romantic suspense fans. While this book is part of a series, it is a stand alone novel, however, it is so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all.

An incredible read!! Fast paced full of action, suspense, sexual tension. What's not to love. Tony and Fallyn are great together as they work together to find exactly what happened to Fallyn's sister Heather. Sparks definitely fly between these two and their passion can't be contained but they won't lose focus. The more they dig the more danger they find themselves in. Tony is dealing with a lack of confidence about protecting people but he's determined to put that aside and protect Fallyn no matter what. You don't want to miss this one. I highly recommend it.

Fallyn just lost her twin sister. Heather was a United States Senator. Now she's dead and Fallyn's life is in danger as unknown adversaries are searching for her sister's tablet . What's on there? Who can Fallyn trust? Thank goodness the Justice Team is on the job. Tony is her bodyguard. He's good a what he does even though he's struggling to come to terms with the death of the Chief Justice who was under his protection when he was killed. Fallyn won't stop. She needs to find out who killed her sister. She's a strong, confident woman who understands all the political maneuvering and can play the game. Tony will do what is necessary to protect Fallyn. He's attracted to her. He will work with her and the rest of the Justice Team to find the truth. These two are a great together. I love watching their interaction. It's both sexy and romantic. I enjoyed seeing Grey and other members of the Justice Team back in action. This story is filled with suspense and political intrigue. The unexpected twists and turns kept me reading. I was pulled into the story by the amazing characters, the intense dialogue and the nonstop action. Protecting Justice is a great addition to this series.
