This bad-ass band of sisters plays for keeps.

She’s ready to start a war
Justice Parish takes down bad guys. Rescued from the streets by the world-renowned Parish family, she joined their covert sisterhood of vigilante assassins. Her next target: a sex-trafficking ring in the war-torn Middle East. She just needs to get close enough to take them down…

He just wants peace
Sandesh Ross left Special Forces to found a humanitarian group to aid war-torn countries. But saving the world isn’t cheap. Enter Parish Industries and limitless funding, with one catch— their hot, prickly PR specialist’, Justice Parish. Their chemistry is instant and off-the-charts. But when Justice is injured and her cover blown, Sandesh has to figure out if he can reconcile their missions. With danger dogging their every move, their white-hot passion can change the world— if it doesn’t destroy them first.

My Rating:  4 stars

I Am Justice is an intense, emotional Romantic Suspense romance that will have you flipping pages quickly.  Action packed, yes, but this story is more than it appears on the surface.  There are reasons why Justice and Sandesh act as they do and that underlying story is full of pain, the kind that can last a lifetime or change a life.  As one of the adopted daughters in the influential, wealthy Parish family Justice has an intense and important job, again on the surface.  What she and her siblings do beyond their jobs is vitally important, if not totally lawful.  Justice will pit herself against very dangerous men in order to protect others.  Sandesh will do all he can to help those who are victims in the war torn Middle East, and other countries where war has destroyed lives.  At times their missions coincide, at other times they are at opposite ends of the spectrum.  Through it all they will be drawn closer to each other, in a world where falling in love can be deadly.

I was quickly drawn into this vivid and deadly world.  There may be some triggers in this story as rape, torture are mentioned.  The sex traffic trade is alive and flourishing all over the world, that is a known fact.  In this Romantic Suspense we’ll get a first hand look at the damage done to the victims, and discover outsiders who have the compassion, the will, the money… and the need for revenge to make a difference.  It is a painful, emotional story at times but it is also a romance between perhaps unlikely people that fit right and works well together.  If you enjoy Romantic Suspense in a fast paced, action filled romance then you’ll want to pick up this first story in the Band of Sisters series.  I Am Justice will leave you with a satisfactory reading experience and a lot to think about.
