About HARD JUSTICE:
Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…
Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she’s sweet and intriguingly innocent. It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.
Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it’s not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that’s real, raw and absolutely against the rules…
“If anything happens to her, we will hold you and the agency personally responsible.”
Her father scowled. “Ms. Silver swears you’re capable.”
“That I am.” Though Justice spoke to her father, he didn’t look away from Fallon, and she shivered at the deepness of the voice that stroked over her skin like a warm caress.
“She also said you were a professional fighter,” her father continued.
“Was once,” Justice agreed. “I fought with the SBC, but I don’t compete anymore.”
“SBC?” her father asked.
“Supreme Battle Challenge. Best known fight organization there is.”
Ah, a fighter. Fallon gave him another quick glance. She supposed that explained the damaged ear, crook in his nose and the outrageous hairstyle. “Not a boxer,” she guessed.
“Mixed martial arts, so kicking, grappling, submissions, but yeah, I’m a pretty good boxer, too.” He jokingly threw a few shadow punches, then, with a glance at her dad, quickly sobered. “Not to brag or anything.”
With a critical eye, her father said, “Admittedly, you’re not what I expected.”
“You were looking for Rocky Balboa? The one in the later movies, not the first? He did get slick in the last few, huh? That’s not me, though. Never will be.”
Such an outpouring left her father stymied for a moment. “Well, my wife and Ms. Silver did suggest that you’d be able to blend in.”
Fallon remained on the last step—and still Justice towered over her. She smiled up at him. “That was my stipulation. That you be able to blend, I mean. I didn’t want a bodyguard to be super conspicuous. But seeing you now, I can’t imagine you blending in too easily.”
He crooked a brow. “Why not?”
“You’re rather large to blend.”
“Depends on where we go, right?” He took her elbow and very unnecessarily helped her down the last step. “Bar, club, steakhouse—no one will pay much attention to me. In this house?” He looked around as if a little put off by the grandeur. “Or a fancy party?” He rasped a big hand over his beard stubble. “I can shave, spiff up a little and force myself into a suit, but that still might not do the trick.”
I loved this book. I was so intrigued by Justice in the first book in this series. I couldn’t wait to see how his story unfolded. Justice is a former MMA fighter who has now joined his buddy Leese at Body Armor where he serves as a bodyguard. Justice is still pretty new to the business and has only just started his career. When he receives his newest client, a 24-year-old woman whose parents insist she needs protection every time she leaves the house, it wonder why but knows it is his job to just protect.
Fallon Wade has been sheltered her whole life but her parents really ramped it up after a tragedy in their family over five years ago. She puts up with it because she feels responsible for their pain. However, she has had enough and wants to experience life a little and convinces her parents to let her out. In walks Justice and Fallon is shocked. He doesn’t look like her normal bodyguards. She doesn’t understand how Justice can blend in anywhere, as he’s 6’5″, with crazy hair and insanely hot.
Justice is immediately drawn to Fallon because she is so kind and beautiful. She isn’t pretentious at all and she has such joy from the small things that normal people overlook. Fallon is extremely private and Justice wants to know more especially once he meets her ex-boyfriend who clearly has caused some of Fallon’s issues.
There is a suspense plot running in the background of their story and you are trying to guess who is responsible through the whole book. The best part of the suspense plot is all of our old favorites show up. It is great to catch up with Cannon, Armie, Denver, and Stack. It also looks like Miles will be joining the agency as well. Not to mention that Sahara Silver, the owner of the agency, needs a hero as well. I really enjoyed the second installment of this series and look forward to more from the Body Armor agency.
And don’t miss the first book in the Body Armor Series!
