This is a fast-paced romantic thriller.

Justice belongs to a powerful organization that focuses on eliminating sex-trafficking rings. She is an undercover, trained assassin on a mission.

Sandesh is an ex-special forces devoted to advancing his charitable foundation. He starts working with the Justice's family organization and soon their lives become entangled.

The story is action packed. I found the characters to be likeable but too compulsive at times. The romance was developed too fast too soon.

This is different than the covers I’m usually drawn to. But she looks like a woman who can take care of herself and I can appreciate that. I love reading about strong women! At its heart, I Am Justice is a book about a strong woman.

Justice, the heroine, is a skilled fighter with unrivaled courage and determination. Her goals in life involve ridding the world of sex traffickers. Obviously, a noble cause to dedicate your life too. She meets Sandesh essentially as a means to an end – he is an ex-s

Justice Parish is one of the many adopted daughters of the very wealthy Parish family. A “sisterhood of vigilante assassins”. She and her siblings target those who oppress the weak and impoverished victims of war and other atrocities. Justice's next job is to kill the two brothers who are setting up a sex-trafficking operation in the Middle East. To fulfill her mission she needs a foolproof cover to get close enough to the brothers to complete her job. There is where Sandesh Ross come in. Sandes ...more

I would highlight this book as an Avengers meets the Expendables meets the legend of the Amazonians, in a no-holds-bar explosion celebrating female strength and conviction.

This book was such a surprise. Not only did it have a diverse cast of completely different and equally incredible women, it also conveyed the struggles of deep emotional pain and the pressure of psychological trauma and loss. It can be quite easy to ignore the emotional nuances with action-filled novels, but 'I Am Justice' doe

I chose to read this book based on the discription it's not my normal genre but I'm always willing to branch out. This book deals with sex trafficking of kids I like how Justice was tracking down some bad men who was the head of a sex trafficking ring. Finding out the league was betrayed by someone from within was both surprising but not I'm glad things worked out in the end and definitely will be looking forward to reading more books in this series and more books written by this author

I am Justice is a contemporary, dark, fast-paced action romance between a woman warrior heroine and a conflicted ex-soldier hero.

Justice is an adopted member of an enormous, almost exclusively female family/organization that covertly works to rescue women and children caught in human trafficking, and to assassinate the men involved.

I requested this book after noticing it was the first in a new series. I have never read this author before (unless she has an alias I don't know) which I thought it was great since I want to try new to me authors. Second, it was the description. Who doesn't want to read about assassins?

I think I was misled by the cover into thinking this was Urban Fantasy.

Justice is an operative for a secret group called the League which avenges abused women. The League is unusual in that it is also a family, of adopted children who have all suffered some form of abuse. Justice saw her own sister Hope murdered in front of her eyes and is determined to avenge her murder.

Whilst chasing the brothers who murdered her sister, who are now trafficking women in Syria, Justice discovers that

Book Worms, this is one that I wasn't sure about. I am still on the fence, I enjoyed it but I didn't. Justice Parrish is an assassin, a very good one at that. Undercover, she is out to get the killers that murdered her sister. Action packed. I think in the future I will revisit this world and re read it. I think my mood wasn't feeling the story, but I felt that It was written well. I didn't have a problem with that, and the characters were likable enough for me to continue to the end.

The rare combination of a breezy page turner read that is deep enough to stay with you after you are done. Great dialogue, fun characters, terrific action, perhaps a wee bit to steamy for my tastes.

If you are in the market for a romance with a definitely strong, bad ass, take no crap lead woman, THIS IS YOUR BOOK. If there was ever a fictional character I wouldn't want to piss off it would be Justice. She takes down sex-trafficking rings and rescues women (and girls) from a fate her sister couldn't avoid. She's rough around the edges, sexy, and independent to the max.

Then we have Sandesh, who is not at all as I pictured and in the best way possible. He's former Special Forces, built to th

This story reads like a Clive Cussler adventure aimed at a #metoo audience. It’s the start of a series about a wealthy and secretive family of female vigilantes. In this first book, the Parish family has their sights on a human trafficking organisation preying on refugee women in the Middle East.

The book hooked me from the start. It was an intriguing premise and the characters were interesting. It was a bit hard to keep everything straight at times, but I suppose that’s the danger in the first book of a series that encompasses as much as this one does. The relationship between the two main characters happened a little fast for me, and I wasn’t all that thrilled with the secret organization. It came off a bit sinister. But I was caught up in the story and liked the mix of suspense, dange ...more

There's just so much going on here I'm not sure where to start. Justice, the heroine of the title, is one member of a team of women fighting to right wrongs against women everywhere. All of them were ‘recruited’ after being rescued from abuse as children and adopted by their foundation's wealthy owner.

Chasing down a pair of human traffickers who killed her biological sister, Justice has to partner up with Sandesh, a former soldier now running a humanitarian mission helping rescue ISIS brides in

Justice Parish is not a woman who's bad side you want to be on. She is a tough as nails, what I would consider, black operative who knows what needs to be done and will complete her mission no matter the costs. She comes from a league of incredibly strong women who are all similar. Justice's sister was taken from her an

LeFemme Nikita meets Alias, Death Wish, The Avengers, every Blaxploitation movie starring Pan Grier, and Annie (X-rated without the singing) with a few traits from Amazons and Samurai thrown into the mix in this rollicking tale of vengeance and redemption. Questions about how warriors reintegrate into civilian life are explored with sensitivity and surprising depth.

The Band of Sisters series is off to a great start with the first book - I Am Justice.

Justice and Sandesh are strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers in to their story and ensure that readers want to get to know them, they have great chemistry and a relationship that is full of intense chemistry, sizzling attraction, smoldering passion and is a very turbulent one that is full of emotional turbulence that adds depth to the characters and also has readers empathizing with them.

I picked this for the cover. I liked it. Justice is an assassin. She is part of a family (all adopted children rescued from various situations) that is rich and has influence. Oh, and they take down human traffickers. Permanently. Sandesh is an ex soldier who runs a humanitarian group (all ex soldiers). Sandesh's group needs money and contracts with Parish Industries (Justice's family).
Based on the description, I shouldn't have been surprised at how dark this went. But I was. I also didn't like

Think of this story as a big message about paying it forward – backed up with bullets. Or as a 21st century league-of-extraordinary-but-not-in-the-least-bit-gentle women. Or perhaps as the story of a group of contemporary Amazons who specialize in giving people who abuse women and girls every single thing that they deserve – with extreme prejudice.

For a new series by a new author this one grabbed me right away. I probably should like what Justice and her family stands for, but I do. I like that they help those that need it and how some of those kids find a way into the family. It totally put me at odds with a character towards the end.

Justice is a bit of an odd fish at first. It was only when she let her guard down with Sandesh that she becomes a little more human. I liked that she fought her family on Sandesh and how she didn't want to

A dark and gritty, fast-paced romantic action thriller that keeps the reader on their toes.
Romantic suspense is my favorite genre and I read a lot of it, yet this story managed to bring something different, something unique to the table. The multi-cultural aspect is fascinating and intriguing, the 28 adopted siblings of a mega-rich family, Justice being one of them, who really is not the PR person for the school but a female assailant, who is ready and able to kick some serious ass.
