Review: The Capture (Justifiable Cause #3) by Adrienne Giordano

Book Blurb:
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 NY 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 oneon vacation, and while she can’t wait to get her heartthrob alone, she also can’t say no when the mayor of L.A. 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.

My Review:

I really liked reading about the circumstances Jo finds herself in while she is in LA expanding the counterfeiting task force she helped initiate. When her not so secret boyfriend Gabe joins her there - a vacation for him - they soon both find themselves in deeper and more danger than either of them anticipated.

As the Justifiable Cause series has progressed, I've enjoyed seeing the evolution of Jo and Gabe's relationship. Where it started to where it is now and seeing it get there has been an exciting journey. I like how they are together, professionally and personally. It seems to just keep getting better! The challenge now is a long distance relationship for how ever long Jo will be in LA...can their relationship withstand it? I liked the little glimpses of jealously that Gabe exhibited. I could really feel the attachment between the two of them, but it was little moments like that that made them realistic and a believable couple.

The unexpected danger that Jo and Gabe find them selves facing in the counterfeiting criminal world brings an adrenaline rush and the suspense keeps the excitement level up. I was interested to know how things would work out professionally and personally for Jo and Gabe...they have come this far, would they take it even farther? Or will the danger be too much?

A good mix of romance and suspense, The Capture (and the whole Justifiable Cause series) is a story I'd recommend to any romantic suspense reader!

4/5 stars
