About JUSTIFIED: 

The New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series delivers a romance about a rugged Texas sheriff who must protect the woman who was once his sworn enemy…

Case Lawton comes from a family of criminals. So as the sheriff of Loveless, Texas, he’s determined to do everything by the book–until he’s called to Aspen Barlow’s office after a so-called break-in. The last thing he wants to do is help the woman who cost him custody of his son. But Aspen isn’t the heartless lawyer Case remembers, and he starts to question his long-held grudge…

Aspen is scared for her life, and Case is her last hope for protection. But to get him on her side, she’ll have to reveal the painful truth from all those years ago. Now, as they work together to track down a dangerous criminal, Case and Aspen learn to trust each other. And as the threats escalate, it becomes clear there’s a thin line between love and hate… because there’s nothing Case wouldn’t do to keep her safe.

Excerpt:

This is a terrible idea. I can’t stay here.” I wished there was more force behind my voice, more sound, but all I could get out was a squeak of protest.

Between arguing with David, answering a million questions about the shooting, and even more from the hospital staff to determine whether my head had been damaged further, what little voice I had was shot. It had been a long, arduous morning. The shock from being shot at was still buzzing underneath my skin, but it was now secondary to the utter disbelief that the place Case believed I would be safest was under his roof.

When he told me he was placing me in protective police custody and taking me to a safe house, never in a million years would I have guessed he meant his house. I was wondering if maybe he was the one who hurt his head when he took me to the ground.

“What about Hayes? Someone shot at me today. You took a bullet for me this morning. You can’t put your son in the line of fire. I won’t allow it.” All of the things I wanted to do to emphasize my point, I couldn’t.

There was no crossing my arms over my chest thanks to my jacked-up elbow. There was no stomping my foot in aggravation thanks to the soft splint holding my ankle in one position. There would be no yelling, since my voice could barely be heard, so all I was left with was a glare. Unfortunately, Case ignored my dirty look and continued to usher me inside the house. 

His morning had been even longer than mine, and he looked as haggard as I felt. After making sure I was secured inside the hospital with an armed guard, he’d had to deal with the crime scene and the slew of reporters who showed up on the scene. Since a shooting in a high traffic and very public place like the hospital was bound to make national news, Case mentioned it was more than likely the Texas Rangers were going to get called in to help investigate.

He didn’t sound thrilled at the prospect, he also didn’t seem too concerned by the fact he was shot. He still had a red stain and a hole in his tan uniform shirt from where the bullet, which was meant for me, skimmed his shoulder. The wound required ten stitches and now was dressed in a stark white bandage much like the one wrapped around my injured hand.

We were quite a pair.

review-blog

*** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. ***

I appreciated the Lawtons since I’ve read about Crew in Unbroken. His older brother Crew had to face his nemesis, the woman who managed to destroy his life, by losing his son’s custody so many years ago.

I was intrigued to see how these two would make amends and met in the middle with such history. 

Case was never up to challenge, pushing Aspen’s buttons and lashing his anger in any way he could. The sheriff of Loveless had a case on his hand when Aspen was threatened and injured. 

Now he was to investigate and seeing the woman in a new light, without the fog of hate he was trapped into. In spite of a shitty childhood with a father who was never in the picture, a dirty cop who ruled the town, until he decided to put things to an end and trying to be a better man and a better father, protecting his family fiercely. This tight knit family, who knew how to survive and fight back when needed. And yes he was such a jerk in the beginning but I guess I would have been too. But sometimes appearances are deceiving.

Aspen was at a turning point in her life, filling for a divorce and trying to keep her business out of the water by defending people who needed someone to fight for their family and to protect the good in children. She was this woman who felt like she never belonged to a place or someone even if she was married. The only moment she felt like something more, it was Case who managed to put this feeling, and they were supposed to hate each other. 

Case and Aspen knew how to put a high level of angst. There’s never been a moment when they didn’t argue or fight. Their dynamic was filled with anger and hate but also with so much sexual tension.  And the passion… so smoking hot!

I appreciated reading about another couple from this series. A great enemies to lovers story.

I can’t wait to read for more.
