Review: Missing Justice (Justice Team #5) by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano

Book Blurb:
A one-night stand and a missing child put these two on opposite sides of solving a murder.

A rising star at the FBI, Taylor Sinclair has a perfect close rate on cold cases. When the bones of a senator’s murdered wife turn up eight years after her kidnapping, the case lands on Taylor’s desk, putting her in the crosshairs of the media—and the killer. Success will solidify her career at the Bureau, but a provocative one-night stand with cocky PI Matt “Mad Dog” Stephens could ruin it.

Matt’s on the hunt for the killer as well, along with the senator’s still-missing child, and believes joining forces with Taylor will get them both the answers they need. He’s determined to get the sexy agent to work with him—in and out of the bedroom—but Taylor is convinced the senator is a murderer. Matt is just as certain he’s innocent.

With a child’s life on the line, Matt and Taylor must plunge into the world of undercover ops and a dangerous attraction that could prove fatal to them both.

My Review:
In Missing Justice by Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano, Taylor is where she wants to be in the FBI working cold cases.  Her most recent case challenges her both professionally and personally.  Not only is the case a political hot bed, but it brings her in close contact with Private Investigator Matt...  Someone Taylor has a personal and professional history with.  The connection and attraction between them is palpable to the reader from the start, but with them on apparent opposite sides of the case Taylor is working on, she is trying very hard to maintain a distance from Matt and not cross any lines. 
When the unexpected happens and Matt and Taylor end up working together to solve a case and find answers, as they become closer to each other so does the danger.
Missing Justice is a fast paced, suspenseful romance that pulled me in and held my interest.  There are unexpected twists, multi layered characters, and lots of emotion in Missing Justice.  Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano pull it all together smoothly and for the most part believably.  I really liked Taylor and Matt.  They are mature dynamic characters with backgrounds that have really shaped who they are today.  I liked how they were together both professionally and personally, and I felt part of the journey they were on!
The suspense is edgy, the mystery kept me guessing, and the romance felt real in Missing Justice.  I really liked the secondary characters with their contributions to the plot, they really made this story unique!  I loved getting to know some of them a bit too!
There are some surprises in the conclusion of Missing Justice, and for me some of it happened a bit too fast, felt a bit unrealistic, and left me with too many questions.  That piece of the plot left me a little less satisfied, but overall I really enjoyed Missing Justice and would recommend it to any romantic suspense reader.
4/5 stars
