These brothers had me so captivated I couldn't wait to start this book after reading the first, Craving Justice. Following Heath Justice, the cop of the family, this book takes us on a journey surrounding a murder and the sexy mystery writer accused of the crime.

Heath was enamored by the fiery red head the second he caught her trying to break into her parents' house and he knew there was no way he was letting her go without a promise for a date. He and London

The Justice brothers are back.

I enjoyed reading Tempting Justice. I like to see siblings bonding with their teasing, sarcasm and humour bringing them together. Mostly having fun, but more times than not there’s an opportunity to poke fun instead. No brother or sister is going to let you live it down when you stumble but what makes a great family is they’re laughing…as they help you up.

I’ve met the Justice family before and I know they have each other’s backs. Now, I know they’ll have the backs

The Justice Brothers are back and still trying to unravel the mystery that was Stanton Fox’s secret life and solve his murder. My obsession with the Sons of Sydney series started within the first few pages of Craving Justice, book 1, it has doubled from reading Tempting Justice, book 2.

Heath Justice is a Seattle Police Officer; he’s all about order and following the rules. He’s also incredibly hot, extremely Alpha and feels he isn’t worthy of love because of guilt from his past. Heath’s par

After trying to find an Australian slang phrase to express my emotions on this book I've decided to go back to me good old English slang and say that this book is the dog's bollocks. I would post a drawing don't think that it would go down well though.

OMG! I was so THRILLED to dive back into the world of the SONS OF SYDNEY! Fiona Archer will make you SWOON HARD for her Aussie hunks! Heath Justice is the next brother up, and oh my hell was he an INSTANT FAVORITE of mine! I fell HARD for him in the first book, Craving Justice, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on his story!

In Tempting Justice, the Justice Brothers are back and still trying to unravel the huge mystery that was Stanton Fox’s secret life and at the same time, solve his murder. Heath Justice is a Seattle Police Officer; he is for law and order, rules and justice. He is definitely a hot alpha male. London Shaw is Heath’s partner younger sister. She is also an author and someone who walks to the beat of her own drum gladly and proudly. She is so sassy and very sweet. The chemistry between London and Hea ...more

It has been a bit of a wait for Tempting Justice to hit my kindle, but all the best things are worth waiting for.

Now I am trying to find the words to give these Justice boys the justice they deserve.

5 Star Review of Tempting (Sons of Sydney #2) by Fiona Archer

This is the second book in the exciting Sons of Sydney series by Australian author Fiona Archer and is Heath and London’s story, Heath is one of four brothers (not by blood, but by choice) rescued from the streets of Sydney and adopted and whisked away as teenagers to live in Seattle by Aurora Justice and her son Dillon.

This is one of the best series by an Australian author I have read. There is mystery, intrigue, romance, and most ce

Heath is our guy in this release. Heading to Derek's house for breakfast (his partner) -- Heath's world is flipped upside down when he catches someone breaking into another section of the house while visiting. Cuffing the intruder and dragging her to the front Heath is surprised to have just met Derek's little sister London.
From here the story takes a nice little twist. London is a YA writer taking on a new genre. Her family is supporting her

I devoured this book. I recommend reading Craving Justice first, however it is not necessary. Do not resist the temptation of Tempting Justice! This series of Australian brothers that Fiona Archer has created is amazing. The brothers all had hard lives growing up. As adults, they are still united as brothers especially when they or their woman find themselves in crisis situations. I mean who wouldn't want this group helping them?!

I must say, I love the Justice brothers.
In book one, the author had a twist at the end that I just did not see coming. This book picks up about a month after the end of book one, and from the very start of this book, I was hooked. I absolutely love London and Heath together. Not only does this book have plenty of heat but it also has suspense. And like book one, there was a twist at the end that I certainly wasn't predicting. In fact, I was predicting something totally different.

This is book two in the Sons of Sydney series. Heath & London's story.

This book has intrigue, mystery and romance. I really enjoyed the fast pace of the story.

I love Heath and London together. Heath is an alpha male with a softer side. London has spunk and determination whilst also being very cute. My favourite scene in the whole book is when they meet for the first time. It's hilarious. They just click straight away and I like that there is no angst in their relationship.

This is Book #2 in Fiona's Sons of Sydney series and boy was it good! This book kept me on the edge of my seat while laughing throughout the entire book. Hehe.

Heath is seriously an alpha but with a heart of gold. London is full of sass and definitely keeps Heath on his toes throughout the entire book.
I loved reading their story and what was even better was that London is an author herself. So you get to see things from a different perspective.

I am head-over-heels IN LOVE with this series! I read the first book, Craving Justice, and I was immediately hooked! How could I not be? BOTH Craving Justice and Tempting Justice suck you into a new world full of Aussie badasses finding love. It was awesome. And while Craving Justice piqued my interest, I fell in love with Tempting Justice. My mind, and body were blown away. I felt like my world would never be the same after this book.

Having read the blurb to this book I was immediately drawn to it and desperately wanted to read it. It was one of those blurbs that enticed you. Unfortunately, I didn't think the actual story was as good as the blurb portrayed. For me it was too slow, of course that is just my personal feelings.

I found this story to be really hard to get into; it took me a good while to start to enjoy it because I found there was just too much unnecessary story in the beginning, too much filling in and not enoug

Heat, humor, mystery and suspense along with great characters

Book 2 in the series, while enough details from book 1 are filled in to make sure you could read this one on its own, characters and storyline carry over from the previous book. I'd recommend reading the series in order for maximum enjoyment and because this book has spoilers for book 1.

I loved how Heath and London were opposites in so many ways: Heath is literally law and order, being a homicide detective, and order is important to

Another stunning read by Fiona Archer. Tempting Justice kept me riveted. Archer continued to build an enticing world as Heath and London’s worlds collided, murder cases needed solving, and the possibility of love was explored.

Once again, the daunting task of self-forgiveness was associated cleverly with moving forward with love. Heath Justice had lived with guilt for many years, and it had crippled him. London Shaw was a woman ready to face a problem head-on, until self-doubt thwarted

Well, Eff me! The Justice brothers strike again! Hello Heath! And yes, you do want to read these in order. There are a lot of people to keep track of, especially now with London and her brothers. There are at least 7 or 8 men to keep track of and 5 or 6 women. Honestly, it's a lot. And probably the only reason I didn't go 5 stars. It got really confusing a few times and slowed down the read a bit. Otherwise, this is a great series, great story, sexy, sweet, hot, suspenseful, and definitely keeps ...more

This book is another awesome book in the series! I am loving this series and I am hoping it carries on more than four books!

Heath is such a great character and a police officer who is sworn to protect but at the same time family comes first. He is put into protection mode the moment someone messes with London and that carries on through the book.

London was another awesome character and I loved her from start to finish. I hated what she went through in this book and I loved that she was an autho

London is a writer who gets caught up in a murder. Heath is an Australian, who was adopted and brought to America with his three brothers, a cop and her brother's partner. They fall in instant lust. When London is accused of killing a fellow writer and friend, she stays with Heath because the reporters are camped at her house.
Heath has a small case of OCD and London is the most disorganized person he's met. While the guys can't work on London's case, they are trying to figure out who kil

Holy hot Aussie alpha badass!
I like more romance and story line than sex with my books. I was a little worried after the first book because it was a bit more sex than I normally like. But this book was great. Lots of teasing and lead up to the sex scenes. They did not jump right into it.
The story line was great too. This is the second book in a series. I would not recommend reading this as a standalone. The plot lines of the 'mystery' do fold quite a bit into what happened in the first book. Ho

Heath Justice is one hot Aussie Alpha. I'm really having a hard time with which Justice brother I love best. They are all Alpha in their own right and boy will you be fanning yourself over these men. I love you get to know each of them a little more in each book so far. Tempting Justice is hot, sexy and filled with that added suspense that leaves you guessing how did it.

Excellent Read from beginning to end! Just hated to have to leave the Justice and Shaw men when the finally chapter arrived. Fiona Archer builds exciting suspense and gives her reader a workout with sexy dialogue and heat in the bedroom (or shower, kitchen, wall, doorway it really doesn't matter). Heath Justice is the kind of police officer every lady dreams of being frisked by, handcuffed, and taken for a ride.

The second book in the Sons of Sidney series and this focuses on Heath. The storyline that started in the first book continus and the plot thickens. More is revealed about the enemy.

In this book Heath meets London, writer and sister of his partner at work. London is a great character. I loved the fact that she is a writer, she is a bit quirky, but also very down to earth. A bit messy, so she is a total opposite of neatfreak Heath. I loved that the book showed her insecurities, but also her stren

I really enjoyed reading about Heath and London, there wasn’t any angst or drama in this relationship which meant we got to enjoy the story. I liked them as a couple. One thing I enjoyed the most about this book was that it was more of a suspense than a romance novel. The mystery was intriguing that it carried the book perfectly.
