Start your review of Justice For Abby (The Bodyguards Of L.A. County #6)
The sixth book in The Bodyguards Of L.A. County series by Cate Beauman. Abigail Harris was kidnapped and forced to work for a man she trusted in a sex-ring organization. She was rescued but now is hiding until the court date when she can testify with her bodyguard, Jerrod Quinn. Meanwhile, baddies are after her to shut her up and get revenge.

Another one of those books that just didn't quite do it for me. I didn't hate it but didn't love it either. It is part of a series and I have not read the o

I love this series. This book is not a stand alone. You should read (Forever Alexa: Book Four In The Bodyguards Of L.A. County Series) before you read this one.

I was amazed by Abby's strength, and courage. Abby was kidnapped, and was thrust into the world of sex trafficking, and prostitution. She was saved at the end of book 4. In this book we got to see Abby slowly healing from her nightmare. She had panic attacks, and nightmares, that seemed so real. They caught a few of the people behind the

Justice for Abby by Cate Beauman is Book VI of the Bodyguards of LA County Series and I have been eating these romantic suspense novels up, like the M&Ms I love so much. This may be the best one yet.

Abby is taken from the rest area parking lot, right in front of her sister, Alexa, and her daughter, Livy. With the threat of harm to her family, Abby is forced to work for them, but her eye is always on escape.

After her rescue, she has lingering affects, flashbacks and panic attacks, and fears that

After I read ‘Falling For Sarah’ and ‘Saving Sophie’ I just knew I needed to read more books in the Bodyguards of L.A. County series. So when I was approached to read the sixth book in the series called ‘Justice For Abby’, I was super excited and started reading as fast as possible. I love that these books are standalones but still have the same characters. And I definitely plan to read all of them.

This is the second book I am reading from this series and had my expectations piqued by the covers I had seen of the books that belonged to this series. The cover conveyed as less as as possible, but managed to be eye catching. The first line of the summary should have given enough clue that this book is a sequel that continues a story from a previous book.

In Book #4 of the Bodyguards of LA County series, Forever Alexa, two sisters, Abigail and Alexa Harris, were driving on their way home from vacation along with Alexa’s sleeping three year old Olivia when the younger sister, Abby, was abducted. That book, Book #4, was Alexa’s search for Abby. This book, #6 Justice for Abby, is Abby’s story. (Definitely, you will want to read Forever Alexa first but it isn’t necessary.

Once you start reading this book you realize right away it wasn't going to be easy to get though due to the story line which revolves about sex, rape and international sex ring in which Abby is the only witness.

Jerrod is the bodyguard, who is assigned to keep her alive until the trial. Abby is an up an coming fashion designer and keeping her identity a secret is no small task.

First book I read in this series and it was good. Well written with enough angst to hold you. Could have don't without some things but karma is a wicked bitch...although we never found out if anything happened to that LA bitch journalist we can't say the same for Shelby....she had a hard lesson there. Liked the heroine taking a brave although somewhat sad approach to recovery....nice job.

Gritty, heart-rending, and ultimately sweet and rewarding.

Abby was sex-trafficked by a man she thought was her friend and has to be protected by Jerrod Quinn, a no-nonsense by-the-book bodyguard. She is running from monsters who relish violence, rape, and torture, and the point is made when her young friend, 15 year old Margret is ... and ...

While Abby fights off panic attacks and tries to get under Jerrod's skin, betrayal and exposure cause them to go on the run together. The story is hot, fast

I was excited to start this book. After her ordeal (through Alexa) in book #4, I' been waiting on the "epilogue" to that story for some time. I must admit, though, that it felt like somewhat of a slow start. I wasn't as in to it as I'd hope.

But I'm glad I stuck with it. Because as the climax approached - wow. There were twists and turns I didn't see coming. Even knowing there would be a happy ending, I still found myself dropping my jaw at certain parts and getting teary at another part.

I loved the fast paced action in this book. This book was exciting and kept me up all night reading it. The story of how determined Abby was to work through all the nightmares, panic attacks was impressive. The positive influences in her life are her sister and niece and her personal bodyguard. Jerrod Quinn became not only her bodyguard but her confidant. The plot is very fast moving and has you sitting on the edge of your seat. I high

Such a great story but...

But there is at least THREE explicit and very descriptive rape scenes in this book that were AWFUL to have to read and one was a rape and brutal murder of a 15 year old girl. I always want to rate a book less for this. My imagination is bad enough, the descriptive scenes are disgusting. But, maybe this problem lies only with me.

Intense from start to finish

This book was harder to read than the others due to the serious subject matter and the glimpse into the depth of hopelessness and sadness Abby has to overcome. It was fascinating, intriguing and full of highs and lows. Good read.

Another great read by Cate Beauman. This series is definitely one to check out as it has so much going for it. Great characters and great storylines that will have you hooked right from the start. Intrigue, danger, suspense and romance all rolled into one.

Abby has had a brush with danger that she doesn’t want repeating after being kidnapped and kept in a sex ring. You don’t find out everything that happened to her straight away, only through moments of flashbacks that occur when something trigge

Did not finish, barely started.

I looked at the reviews for this book prior to reading and was ready for a good story. The premise of the book sounds interesting - girl is kidnapped by an underground sex slave operation, she later escapes and is a key witness to a court case, she needs protection and hijinks ensue.

Chapter one; she is kidnapped. She discovers her kidnapper is someone she knows. Kidnapper says she will make outfits for the girls he's selling into slavery and that she'll be his play

We had the honour to meet Abby in Forever Alexa . She is Alexa's sister who got kidnapped by traffickers.

Abby is now rescued and trying to pick-up the pieces of her life. I admire Abby so much and I think she is my favourite heroine to date. She has been through so much but she still manages to remain passionate and kind. While she still has panic attacks and nightmares, she remains remarkably strong and courageous and doesn't let what happened to her define her.

Once rescued, she agrees to testify against the monsters responsible. As a result, her life is in danger and she requires protection. Jarrod admires and respects Abby. She was a survivor and it was his job to keep her safe until she testifies in court. Splendid 24/7 together, they become close friends. When they are f ...more

Cate Beauman has made herself in my favorite author's list. I have written in my review for Falling for Sarah that she has proper command over her words and her writing is simple yet striking. This is my second book from bodyguards of LA. country series and now I want to read the rest books of this series. This book starts with the protagonist, Abby getting kidnapped and taken away to a sex ring. If you want to avoid such things, then you might skip this book. Otherwise this book is worth readin

Justice For Abby

This book begins with a flashback to Abby's abduction. I liked this beginning because it demonstrates Abby's life prior to her abduction and then the rest of the book explains some of her struggles to overcome that awful time. This is s great topic. We all know it happens but don't realize that it could happen to anyone or the fact that it does happen all the time. But aside from the seriousness of the topic, this book has great strong characters. The hero protector and the heroi
​I kept my fingers crossed for Abby all the way through this story. Abby was such a kind and generous person and she had been through hell and was trying to get herself back to what she considered normal. Abby had been kidnapped and forced into a brothel. She had been tormented by someone she had considered her friend. The fact that she could even consider trusting again was so amazing to read about.
Jerrod would do anything to keep Abby safe, even deny them both the love and happiness they dese

I really thought this would be a routine bodyguard/subject book, boy was I wrong. Cate Beauman's characters popped! By the end of this book (which I read in one sitting) I was exhausted but replete. Jerrod Quinn is an ex- marshal with lots of experience in witness protection, and he knows that an emotional involvement with his subject will cause distractions that can have deadly consequences. The heart and libido don't necessarily care about facts. With Abby's anonymity falling apart, the pressu ...more

I really loved the romance aspect of this novel. There wasn't a whole lot of suspense in this. Every thing that they did for her protection was really just cautionary, which is what they're supposed to do (duh, he's a bodyguard). But that really just didn't make me feel.. I don't know what the word I'm looking for is but it just didn't really feel all that suspenseful to me.
It was really nice to see Abby's story get wrapped up and with the sweet, hunky Jerrod. Lucky girl!
