Piper Anderson has been given a fresh start in the picturesque town of Edenville, North Carolina. But her plans of settling into a normal life are derailed when she witnesses a prominent judge in her community committing a violent assault. Running from her own past and fueled by a passion to make the judge answer for his crimes, Piper is forced to decide if she’ll play by the rules or achieve justice in her own way.
Complicating things further, Piper finds herself fighting a powerful attraction to rookie cop, Bobby Wright. Although she’s increasingly enamored with Bobby, his staunch belief in the justice system is in stark contrast to her own. She may not share his opinions about the effectiveness of the law, but she certainly can’t deny how safe she feels when she’s in his arms or how every kiss leaves her desperate for more.
For Piper, the idea of finally living an ordinary life with a man to love is tempting. However, fate keeps placing the judge, quite literally, in her path. Will she decide the only way to win is to be as wicked as the judge, but with righteous intentions? And more importantly, will Bobby choose to let her go, or follow her as she crosses the line and takes justice into her own hands?
Piper wanted to go into Criminal Justice after almost being the victim of a serial killer, and being put into witness protection. After realizing its not all black and white but a lot of gray areas she quits school and becomes kind of a detective. While sneaking around digging up dirt on a dirty judge she meets new friends and possible falls in love.
I love this book because we all want to do this at times!! How many times does the justice system fail? We have all disagreed with decisions made by judges. Or maybe even cops. Piper takes it into her own hands and tries to do something about it. Without the help of Michael and Bobby, I don’t think she would have gotten as far…
Hopefully she will be able to trust Bobby enough to let him fully into her heart and love him. I’m also hoping Michael and Jules stay together, they were an unexpected couple but great together!
Danielle Stewart is an incredible writer. I can’t wait to read book two in this series to see if the serial killer has found Piper and what happens with her and Bobby! I am currently on a book buying ban (the hubby thinks I have too many unread books) but as soon as I can this whole series will be mine!!! 🙂
