Stealing Justice (The Justice Team Series Book One): By Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano

    Stealing Justice is the first book in The Justice Team Series by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano and the only books I have read by these authors and was free on Amazon when I picked it up. To be honest, it's not very often that I am not 100% happy and totally in love with a book, but Stealing Justice let  me down.
    The story has a good plot, good characters and plenty of action, but as the chapters roll on it gets tiresome quickly. The whole thing is so predictable. I knew who the killer was long before the characters ever came to the same conclusion, and were still chasing the "red herring," And the"red herring" was not believable, even for a minute, making me doubt the investigative abilities of the hero, CIA Agent Justice "Grey" Greystone. On top of the predictability was the redundancy.  The scenes and terms where all so repetitive. Fight, angry sex, make up, stake out, cupcakes,  fight, angry sex, make up, stake out, cupcakes, over and over again.
   Stealing Justice and The Justice Team are classified as romantic suspense. My warnings for the book, other than the predictable redundancy,  fall in line with the genre. There is a ton of graphic violence in the book, which make sense, since they are hunting a serial killer rapist.  There is also frequent explicit language. The only thing not graphic in the book, is the sex. It's there, a lot, but it's not paragraphs of extremely descriptive dirty stuff. Truly, even the sex gets repetitive.  Overall, it's not the worst free download you can get, but it's not the best either.

The Justice Team:
Book One: Stealing Justice (Grey)
Book Two: Cheating Justice (Monroe)

This book was available as a free download on Amazon, it is back to $2.99 here.

The Lies That Save Us (The Broken Heart Series): By JL Redington

   The Lies That Save Us is the first JL Redington book that I have read, and now I am a fan. This was a great read. The novel keeps you guessing from beginning to end, Redington gives nothing away and the surprises keep coming. In The Lies That Save Us, Redington brings us a ton of action and conspiracy with a little romance thrown in to keep things spicy and the pages turning.
  The Lies That Save Us is the first book of The Broken Heart Series and was available as a free promotional download for Kindle on Amazon when I caught it. The series revolves around a FBI Agent Max Menetti and his team. The Lies That Save Us stars Max's daughter Alexa and his teammate Cayman in a whirlwind of confusion, chaos and conspiracy.
  The Broken Hearts series is "mystery- suspense romance," and my warnings fall in line with the genre. There is a lot of action and graphic violence in the portrayal of that action. However, there is no graphic sex. There are some steamy make out scenes, but the one and only sex scene in "The Lies" is not graphic.

The Broken Heart Series:
Book One: The Lies That Save Us  (Cayman)
Book Two: Solitary Tears (Patrick)
Book Three: Veiled Secrets  (Sam)
Book Four (Sequel to Book One) : Softly She Leaves (Max)
