Jerrie Alexander is one of my auto read authors so you should know that upfront. She can't write her books fast enough and I was thrilled to find out she was writing another series. This first book doesn't disappoint!

Quick summary
FBI Agent Rafe Sirilli returns home to Texas to settle his recently deceased father's affairs. He runs smack into a doozy of a situation involving Erin Brady, a high school counselor and adopted daughter of his father's former partner

3.5 Stars. Good story, but not the best I've read from Alexander. Rafe, an FBI agent, has come home to settle his late father's estate. He sticks around to help a high school friend named Erin, who has been accused of murder and then later is the victim of a sexual predator stalker.

Nice read, but Jerrie Alexander's best book so far, imo, remains her wonderful debut effort 'The Green-Eyed Doll'; which was chilling and creepy.

Till Justice is Served by Jerrie Alexander is a 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have enjoyed all of Jerrie Alexander's novels I have read so far, and this one is no exception. A blend of mystery and suspense with a hot and spicy love affair is not always the easiest thing to pull off. The storyline often leans too heavy in one direction or the other. But, the author does a great job of building tension both in the crime elements and the ro

A romantic suspense with plenty of sexy Agents and a creepy stalker who thinks nothing of murdering those wronging his obsession no matter their age.

FBI Agent Rafe Sirilli has taken a leave of absence to come back to his hometown to take care of his father’s estate after his death. He hasn’t been back in a long time due to bad memories. He is not back long before one his father best friends ask him if he could help his adopted daughter who has just been accused of killing one of her students..
I am a huge fan of romantic suspense and Till Justice Is Served had just the right mix of everything I love to make this a 5 star read for me. The characters were well developed and multi-faceted, the romance was filled with tension and sparks and some very hot scenes, and the plot was laid out masterfully to build up to the reveal and subsequent resolution, all done with a heavy dose of realism that made the characters come to life.

I just loved every character that was introduced in this book.

Jerrie Alexander brings us a romantic suspense story about second chances. Twelve years have passed since Rafe Sirilli last saw Erin Brady. During that time they have both changed but their attraction to each other is still strong.

The story is very believable and full of suspense. There are multiple subplots in the mystery itself that kept me reading, waiting for the next solution or twist, something I found very attractive in the story. There were a few red herrings to throw me off, always appr

TILL JUSTICE IS SERVED, the first of Jerrie Alexander’s newest Killer Affections series, starts on a high and hardly slows down. No one writes bad guys quite as well as Ms. Alexander, and this guy is really nuts! The great thing is Ms. Alexander writes him so the reader gets why he is the way he is.
Being a retired elementary school principal, I found the setting of TILL JUSTICE IS SERVED, especially interesting, and I had no quarrel with the author about the picture she painted. The situation sh

What makes a great suspense is a good mystery, with supporting subplots to keep the story moving. Add in a few twists and turns here or there, and you've got yourself a story. What I loved about this particular book, is that it had all of these elements woven together with an intriguing love story that feeds off of the drama presented in the story line.

The author has phenomenal talent when it comes to writing characters - particularly when it comes to writing the villain. Wow. The "bad guy" in

Great book and the romance part was spot on. I liked that they didn't rush into bed (well, actually, since the book took place during a single week, they didn't wait that long, but still, they didn't just fall into bed). The suspense was good as well, I still guessed at some point who was the creep, but that was just because there weren't so many options to choose from, not that it was obvious. All in all, I will surely read the second book in the series. ...more

Great story!! Loved all the new chacaters... I hope this becomes a series. Would like to know what happens to Linc, Luke, and Colton. Disappointed there was no epilogue..:( kinda just left you hanging. Maybe more will revealed in the next one...

There were some parts of Till Justice Is Served that I liked but overall I just don't think it was the book for me. It boils down to personal taste and style so I'll forgo a long, drawn out review demonstrating that.

InD'tale Magazine
From the opening line, Ms. Alexander grabs the reader’s attention by setting the scene with a psychotic vigilante.

Read full review in the 2015 March issue of InD’tale Magazine.

Rating: 3.5/5

I've read and loved all books written by Jerrie Alexander. She's one of my go-to authors when I need a romantic suspense fix. This first book in her new series just didn't grab me as much as any of her other works. While the main characters didn't keep me captivated, I was definitely interested in the side characters, Colton and Luke.

I love that the author often starts of her stories with a glimpse into the villain's mind and his or her grizzly deeds. It accomplishes two things: it

This book combines thrilling suspense scenes, smoldering sex scenes and hot and sexy DEA and FBI Agents…what more could you ask for?

Chapter 1 really set the benchmark for the remainder of the book and was such a thrilling start to the story.

And with the opening chapter I was hooked into this suspense filled cleverly written thriller.

Erin is the prime suspect for the murder of a student in her class, whom she found with narcotics previously and had in turn reported Erin for inappropriate behaviour. Erin is lost in a world of media frenzy, with everyone watching her every move.

No one writes complicated stalkers better than Jerrie!!

When Erin finds drugs in a students bag and reports her to the Principal, the girl and her friends start a smear campaign, one that could lose Erin her job as counsellor. She's looking down a deep dark hole before her adoptive father ropes in some mighty fine, muscled help.

Rafe knows Erin from school but she crushed him when he went out on a limb to ask her to prom and she rebuffed him strongly and publicly. After being away from home worki

Thank you to Jerrie Alexander for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was a gripping tale full of twists and turns and unexpected events. Chapter 1 and you dive straight into the action. There is no slow run up and I was fully on board for the ride in front of me.

4.5 stars so rounding up to 5 stars

one of my favorite authors is JD Robb (Nora Roberts) - i love her 'in death' series.

this book reminds me of that series without being a copy/clone. it has the perfect mix of suspense and romance with a little (or a lot) alpha male thrown in.

i really liked all the characters in this book. erin was strong and independent while still able to lean on rafe when she needed to. i love her career and passion for helping others after suffering through what she did.

So when I got this book for review the blurb was all about someone ought to get Erin. WRONG. This book had all I look for to be a 10 moon recommended. Passion, Action, Suspense, Romance and most of characters that come to life. Right away I could see Rafe and his turmoil in this whole situation. Here is a guy who blames himself of what happened in the past with his family and still trying to move on. Now Erin is one woman you don’t want to mess. She’s not a dam

I hope this is the beginning of a good series. FBI agent Rafe Sirilli has been undercover for too many years. When his father passes away from a sudden heart attack, Rafe goes home to make the necessary arrangements. He finds out that an old school friend that he liked very much has become the object of a smear campaign. Erin has become a school counselor and is being victimized by some of the students. This is one of two plot threads in the story.

FIVE STARS for Til Justice is Served!

Ms Alexander has done it again, she's delivered a suspenseful thrillfest that takes the reader deep inside a killer's mind. I absolutely love the way she inserts his or her ;) point of view in this dark, gritty romantic suspense novel. There's a hero (Rafe) who is swoon worthy and a strong heroine who needs a partner, not a savior. Erin is a doll with her sassy attitude:

A great opening for a new series! I enjoyed the cast of characters. They are fun, loyal, and trustworthy, charismatic and caring, making them a very attractive and likeable cast.
Rafe and Erin have several murder mysteries, senseless acts of violence, to solve, while battling against their feelings for each other. At the same time there is a problem with drugs on the high school, and everything seems to be connected to Erin somehow. The mystery is layered, with many aspects that needs to be figur

A career in logistics offered me the opportunity to travel to many beautiful locations in America, and I revisit them in my romantic novels.

I write alpha males and kick-ass women who weave their way through life and its pitfalls.
