SWEET Justice - Christy Reece

Book Blurb:
Honor Stone is a young, idealistic FBI agent when her path collides with Seth Cavanaugh. For a girl who has never walked on the wild side, the dark and dangerous Seth is a temptation she can’t refuse. But then Seth walks out the door and out of her life. Five years later, Honor is an operative with the elite Last Chance Rescue organization and Seth is a desperate ex-cop searching for his missing niece—one of many young women who have mysteriously vanished from college campuses. Going undercover, Honor will attract the maniacal cult leader behind the kidnappings and find a way to work with Seth—while steering clear of the passion and need that’s just one touch away from explosion. Seth knows he had all the right reasons for the wrong he did five years ago. And from the moment he sees her—and takes her in his arms again—this former undercover man will risk everything for one more chance with Honor.

In My Own Words:
After a bad break up and a boyfriend that ended up on the wrong side of the law, her heart broken, Honor decided to dive in to her job with the FBI missing persons, head first.  After a case almost cost her her life, she decided it was time to make a change.  After working with the LCR team on several cases, her decision was a pretty easy one and found herself in Paris working for Noah McCall.  When Noah approached her about taking her first lead, she jumped at the chance, until she knew she would be coming face to face with the one man that she could never forget, Seth Cavanaugh.  Seth's niece had been taken several weeks back and with no where else to turn, he comes looking to LCR to help him, but he wanted permission to be on the team as well, which meant working very closely with Honor.  While Seth and Honor delve in to the motivation of missing college students all over the country, their passion is just below the surface.  How long before they explode?  It has been 5 years since they have spoken, and in the span of a few weeks, will they find themselves in each others arms or will the evil past and present win?

Notable Quote:
"I'm a prick."...... "Well they say the first step is admitting the problem."

I have been a fan of the LCR (Last Chance Rescue) series since it first arrived on the book shelves.  All of Christy's books are filled with hope, love and loss and Sweet Justice was no different.  I loved getting to know Seth and Honor and also getting to revisit some of our past friends from LCR as well as becoming better acquainted with some of the newer members.  Christy promised a sick and twisted villain and she totally delivered.  I don't know if I was more disgusted by him or his slimy daughter and then there was his son...sheesh, it was a family of madness.  This was a book I had a hard time putting down!!!

The heat between the couple was right on, the suspense was edge of your seat and the ending, was happy.  What more can you ask for from one of your favorite authors?  Oh yeah, don't end the series??  Yes you heard me right, these are the final 3 LCR books...that is enough to make one cry.  I am looking forward to  Dylan & Jamie's story which hits book stores on October 4, 2011.
