Review: A Just Deception by Adrienne Gordano

Review: A Just Deception by Adrienne Gordano

Publisher: Carina Press
A Just DeceptionSource: Netgalley
Format: ebook
Genre: Mystery, Romance
Reading Level: Adult

Goodreads Synopsis:
The protector: Peter Jessup, former Navy SEAL, currently employed by Taylor Security. He likes being the hero—in charge and in control.
His client: Lawyer Isabelle DeRosa. The sexy brunette is the personification of Peter's fantasies. She's willing to get physical but nothing more serious.
The assignment: When Isabelle becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her cousin, Peter is there to protect her and help her find the real killer. Their investigation leads to a big-name charity that seems to draw cultlike followers. Isabelle manages to infiltrate the group and become close to their leader, leaving Peter both jealous and worried for her.
As their search leads to danger, Peter realizes he's falling in love with Isabelle. He wants all of her, but she's too used to guarding herself to let him in…

First Sentence:

From her crouched position filling the copy machine drawer, Isabelle spied her cousin Kendrick in the doorway and knew the next few minutes would be worse than a bad case of chicken pox.

My Thoughts:
Another book I couldn't put down! I love books with military or ex military characters so this was a must read for me! It's a quicky, easy read that will keep you enthralled from page one. Just a warning: there are some moments that are difficult to read that deal with sexual abuse.

My Rating: 4/5 stars
