My Review:
I really, really enjoyed this one. The suspense story line is way above average from what I expect when going into a romantic suspense novel. I never knew who/how/why throughout the entire book and when it was revealed, it was a brilliant plot! Seriously, kudos to these two authors for that aspect of the story. There's a lot to the story politically and within all the different federal and state agencies that impact the story. It would have taken TONS of research to get it all right an
They were friends once, former FBI agent Mitch Monroe and Special agent Caroline Foster. That was until one night it became something more and Caroline realized she was just a temporary satisfaction and Mitch was truly the jerk he was rumored to be. A year later Mitch is a wanted man and he needs help, he reaches out to Caroline who is not interested in ever interacting with him again. Curiosity is not Caroline's friend though and as she begins to look into the mystery surrounding Mitch, she fin ...more

Cheating Justice by Adrienne Giordano and Misty Evans

The second in the Justice series is a political thriller romance. Mitch is on the run, fingered for his best friends murder. With the help of his Justice team friends and sexy Caroline Foster, they unravel the threads of the mystery on gun running, murder, and espionage.

Mitch and Caroline have a romantic history and this story forces them together in tight quarters and situations.

I "read" this via Audible and it was narrated by Michael Rahhal.

I was a happy camper to say the least when I got to read the next one in this series. I met the two characters in the previous one but in this one they continue on with a hum dinger of a case. Mitch is on the run trying to clear the name of a good friend and former undercover agent. Even though he is framed he is more concerned with getting to cover up that has been used as a scapegoat. He then turns to Caroline a FBI special agent for help. She has already helped him once that jeopardized her c ...more

Wow is the first word that comes to mind. Cheating Justice begins with Mitch Monroe meeting with one of the few people in the world whom he knows he can trust. But when that person ends up dead and Mitch’s face is plastered all over the news as wanted for his murder, he knows he has to step up his game and figure out what is going on and why they are involving him. He makes the hard decision to go to the one person who can help him. Or, break his heart…………….

This book took excitement to the next level! Mitch Monroe is on the run. He's lost his job, and now he has lost his friends. Both were murdered, and he is the main suspect for one of them. He gets help from his former co-worker, and one night fling, Caroline to figure out what is going on. They had no idea the situation was going to be so complex that they would be going up against some very powerful people.

Right from the beginning, this book screams exciting! The mention of Executive Privilege

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. This story drew me right in, I loved the plot, and the suspense.

Mitch, Tommy, and Kemp had been best friends throughout high school. After graduation they joined the FBI. The instructors had called the three friends, The Three Musketeers.

Tommy had been working undercover when he was killed. The FBI, and ATF, and people high up in the government is trying to cover up the murder by saying Tommy went rouge. Mitch is determined to

I enjoyed this story, with its many levels of deception and secrets, the 'all for one' loyalty in friendships - not to mention the sweet romance!
I liked Mitch in the previous book of the series, and was looking forward to read his story. And it didn't disappoint.
The suspense in the story is intense, even though there's not that much action in itself. But the constant fear of getting caught, and the possible conspiracy theori

When I was offered an ARC of this book in exchanged for an honest review, I was thrilled. I loved Stealing Justice and could not wait for more of the characters. Cheating Justice did not disappoint. Mitch and Caroline were an excellent match for each other, both at work and in their personal life. The external plot was fast paced and kept us moving forward, a quick page turner.

4.7 Star Review - Cheating Justice

Mitch has been hiding out for a year as he is wanted by the FBI.

After one of his friends is murdered and framed (or so he believes) he meets with another friend late one night to discuss what could have happened. When that friend then shows up murdered also Mitch is sure someone is trying to cover something up. When later Mitch is listed as the prime suspect in the second murder he knows someone is out to get him.

AWESOME BOOK! This is the second in the "Justice Team series". I highly recommend both Stealing Justice (book1) and Cheating Justice. They are great FBI/Private Sector books with lots of suspense, action and of course romantic interests. The books are written in a way that keeps you on your toes with twist yet make you laugh and smile at the same time.

In Cheating Justice we get to catchup on the team from Book 1 (Stealing Justice) and that is always a plus. The women in the series are strong an

Words really can't describe how much I adored this book. Cheating Justice is the second book in the Justice Team Series and I hate to say it but it may have overthrown my love for the first book. We were introduced to Mitch Monroe in the first books Stealing Justice and I knew that he was going to be one of those positively badass, Alpha Males. They did not disappoint. Mitch has been a wanted man and literally has no one else to turn to but Caroline, who after one very memorable night really doe ...more

This is the second book in the series.

The heroine is an FBI sniper. She really likes the hero but after their one time together, it really soured him for her after it risked her job and he lost his. Besides if it gets out they slept together, then everyone will try and take their shot at her and she’s tired of it because that’s just the way it was – you let one of the guys between your legs and they all feel they deserved a shot. When the hero tracks her down and convinces her to help him after
This is a story about government corruption and cover-up, which isn’t the usual plot I look for when selecting a romantic/suspense book. The clever dialogue and great chemistry between Mitch Monroe and Caroline is what I enjoyed most about this story. In the 1st book of this Series, I was into the mystery more than the romance, while this book for me was all about the crazy and hot affair between Mitch and Caroline. They are such a mismatched couple, which only adds to the fun. Mitch is “on the ...more

Political intrigue

This book is great with its corrupt government officials and one biding for power on the shirttails of a higher official. Thank goodness two FBI agents one current and one a fugitive from trumped up charges go looking for why two best friends are killed. There is sparks between these former partners that lead to chaos and crazy action both in the lake and while being hunted by authorities for the information they find.

I’m a fan of RS authors Adrienne Giordano and Misty Evans individually, so having them collaborate on a series is a treat. After thoroughly enjoying the first book in The Justice Team series, I jumped at the chance to read its follow-up, CHEATING JUSTICE. Who doesn’t love the pairing up of a renegade ex-FBI agent on the lam, a strait-laced FBI SWAT sniper on administrative leave, and an ex-ATF-agent-turned-government-watchdog-blogger on a miss

Misty Evans and Adrienne Giordano are back with the second instalment of the thrilling Justice Team series.
This time around we have Mitch Monroe; we had met Mitch in book one and I for one was very curious about the man who was a ghost and lived off the grid, so was thrilled to be getting his story. Within the first chapter we get a good feel for who Mitch is and how he’s living and then bam! by the end of that chapter…. Mitch is

All right, I finished reading Cheating Justice, and I'm not sure what to say. I guess I should just roll with whatever flies out. In the Stealing Justice, Mitch was around, but hiding after all he's a man on the run. Now he wants his name clear and find out who killed his friend. So, he decides to go to a friend who works for the FBI for help. Now Caroline could have said, "No way! Are you nuts?" Instead she helps Mitch, this could jeopardize her career.

I'm loving this series! The second book in the Justice Team series (book one: Stealing Justice) definitely did not disappoint. Mitch and Caroline made an awesome team (a renegade fugitive from justice and a type-A, by-the-book FBI sniper) and their banter was fantastic. Somehow Caroline's threatening to shoot Mitch just never got old. ;)

Caroline and Mitch have a past--they worked together for the FBI, before Mitch and Grey (the hero of book one) got themselves in trouble and Mitch became a feder
This book had everything that I love in it – tons of action and suspense, lots of plot twists and turns, and a hero and heroine that had the sparks flying off the page. The story pulled me in from the first page and had me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next. Add in the great cast of supporting characters, and this book really did have everything that belongs in a romantic suspense novel!

I loved this book. When you mix mystery, suspense, drama, and romance together you get an amazing combination! These authors are new to me and this will not be my last book by them! This book is full of mystery, suspense, steam, romance, drama, and two characters with enough chemistry to light a fire. And the best part about this book was that is was not predictable! It kept me on the edge of my seat, guessing until the end.
