Review: The Chase (Justifiable Cause #1) by Adrienne Giordano

Book Blurb:

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.

My Review:

In The Chase by Adrienne Giordano, two strong characters and some great action kept me intrigued and turning the pages!

Gabe is a police sergeant, Jo is a lawyer.  Together they are working on a counterfeit task force that is starting to become very dangerous.  As the heat between Jo and Gabe escalates, so does the danger.  Gabe is determined to keep Jo safe, and Jo is just as determined to be very involved in the investigation.  Will they get the job done safely?  If they do, what can come of their feelings for each other, and the passion between them?

I loved the passion between Jo and Gabe!  There is not only great chemistry between them, there is tension and conflict and it all works well together.  Jo and Gabe felt real, and their interactions were realistic to their circumstances.  They are both strong, determined, and dedicated to their jobs.  I couldn't wait to see if they'd be as dedicated to each other!  The play between them was perfect for this plot!

I enjoyed the suspenseful part of the plot.  It is a unique story line, and the action and danger are woven well with a romance.  I felt like it all blended together for a great read.

I'd recommend this well paced book to any romantic suspense reader!  I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, The Evasion.

5/5 stars
