In Stealing Justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano, Grey is a former FBI agent now masquerading as a security specialist. He is also covertly working for the FBI and he's out to catch a serial killer.
Sydney works with women looking for a new start, sometimes a new identity, at St. Agnes Fresh Start for women. She has made her way onto Grey's radar when he connects that some of the murdered women had been through her program. Grey thinks Sidney is up to something...
Both Grey and Sydney have their secrets and pasts they struggle with...guilt and sorrow. They are also both driven to do the right thing which in Stealing Justice means working together as Grey convinces Sydney to go undercover for him to help catch a killer. Grey wants to be in charge, but Sydney has her own ideas too, and as they hunt a killer Grey struggles between the mission and keeping Sydney safe - from herself and from the unknown danger.
Grey and Sydney discover a connection between them that extends beyond the mission, a sexual chemistry that can't be denied, but is it enough? Is whatever is developing between them strong enough to survive after all is said and done - if Grey can keep Sydney safe? As the chase draws closer, no one and nothing is always what it seems.
Stealing Justice was a riveting, action packed hot read!! I loved both Grey and Sydney. Between the action, Misty and Adrienne tell both of their stories so that we come to know Grey and Sydney very well...we see what drives them, we see what holds them back. I loved going way below the surface of Grey and Sidney. Grey is Wow!! All alpha, determined to do what's right, no matter the cost to him or his career. Sydney throws a bit of a wrench in his plans, but in the best way. She's independent and strong willed...somewhat of a challenge for Grey to figure out! She certainly goes after what she wants which I love, no beating around the bush for Sidney! I really liked these characters because they were so real. The interactions between them were at times funny and at times so serious, they really complemented each other.
Misty and Adrienne have started this series with a bang and I can't wait to see what comes next! Stealing Justice is a well paced, captivating romantic suspense with some unexpected twists! I'd recommend Stealing Justice to any romantic suspense reader - you won't be disappointed.
4/5 stars :)
