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.
This is my first read from author Christy Reece and all I can say is; Wow, it will not be my last!
Five years ago Seth Cavanaugh gave up the only woman he has ever loved to protect her from the dangers in his life. When his niece goes missing though, him and ex-F.B.I. agent Honor Stone are thrown together again when he turns to Last Chance Rescue for help locating her.
Finding Seth’s niece and the other missing young women across the country is a priority, but can this also be a second chance at love for Seth and Honor? When Honor finds out that Seth was on a deadly undercover mission and left her to protect her, she might understand it but forgiving it is another matter.
Sweet Justice was a thrilling ride into the lives of men and women of both honor and strength, who rescue those around the world who seemly have no chance. The 7th book in the LCR series is about Seth and Honor, two people who are determined to let the past rest but are unable to more forward from it. Being so far into the series I was surprised at the ease I was able to pick up this story, as I have never read anything by Christy Reece before. The story was absolutely gripping with a perfect balance of both romance and suspense.
Both Honor and Seth were captivating MC’s; Honor is a strong, independent and sensitive woman while Seth is a tough, honorable and sexy alpha male determined to protect those he cares for. He has sacrificed his life, family and love for justice and doesn’t think that anyone could love the man he has had to become because of it. But Honor shows him that he is not only a man worthy of love but so much more then what he was. The romance and re-connection between these two was heart pounding and sizzling, wrought with not only sexual tension but emotional tension as well.
Christy Reece delivers an intriguing plot with chilling villains that gave me goose bumps. This pair has cultivated an intricate, and sickening, plot to rule a cult-like community and end up being probably the vilest villains I have ever read about. The plot was well paced and the suspense intense.
All together Sweet Justice was an incredibly stirring novel and I’m curious about the rest of the Last Chance Rescue gang now!
