This was a fast paced action packed romantic thriller. Diane Munoz Stewart has spun a tale that was equal parts sizzle and suspense. Gracie was living a hard childhood until she was taken in by the Parish family. A family of badass vigilante assassin sisters. The family is full of secrets and Gracie knows it is her duty to hold onto them. Then Dusty enters the picture and he is determined to get to the bottom of this family’s secrets and missions. It isn’t long though before Dusty is caught up ...more

The Price Of Grace
By: Diana Munoz Stewart

*REVIEW*
Having not read the first book, I found The Price Of Grace confusing at times. It's a continuous story that will continue into a third book. I recommend reading in order. That being said, this story is suspenful, engaging and dramatic with some romance as well. Gracie is in a situation that is less than ideal. Dusty has

3.5 stars - I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

In the best possible way, this strange series gets even more odd with this second book. Gracie is another of the children adopted by Mukta Parish and trained to be a vigilante warrior fighting for oppressed women everywhere. Dusty is an FBI agent sent undercover to investigate the illegal aspects of Mukta’s vigilante empire. It’s a complicated relationship from the start and it’s further complicated when neither

The Price of Grace is the second book in Diana's Black Ops Confidential series and while it's being listed as a standalone, there is an underlying second plot that ties the books together so I highly recommend them reading in order. I did not read the first book and while it doesn't hurt the story of Gracie and Dusty, I did like I wasn't getting whole story and that hurt the overall vibe of the book for me.

This is a very fast-paced, action-packed story with LOTS going on. Again, if you did not

This one got really messy for Gracie and her family. Gracie it seemed was trying to break away from them a little bit, to just be Gracie, not Gracie with a mission, not Gracie with the big family. The thing though...by the end of the book it seems like Gracie is very thankful for them, that she got to see them all through a different light as she let Dusty in and saw them all through his eyes and how the family all came together to save what was precious to her.

While this threat is now gone to

Sometimes there’s justice, and sometimes there’s “just us”. This series is about a family that has decided where that line gets drawn, to be that “just us” for women all over the world who desperately need some of that justice. No matter who, or what, gets in the way.

This particular entry in the series is all about the price that gets paid, on both sides of the equation. The Price of Grace is the second book in the Black Ops Confidential series, after last

The Price of Grace just wasn’t the book for me. I just couldn’t get into this book. The author was new to me and the synopsis sounded good but I was very disappointed. Thanks to the publisher for my advance ebook. This is my unbiased review.

The description sounded good, but the execution was lacking. There was so much going on in this book, it was hard to get into. And it was confusing. I don't mind not being able follow along right away as long as it all intersects eventually with clarification. That didn't happen in this book. I made it to chapter 11 before I gave up. It just wasn't for me.

Disjointed storyline; couldn’t seem to make up its mind what it wanted to do. Mystery? Romance? Thrillers? Adventures? Tried to do too many things instead of one thing well. I received an advanced digital copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Black Ops Confidential #2, this was so worth waiting a year for especially since the next one comes out next month (11-26-19). I really enjoyed this, it was non stop action packed romance. There is quite a bit that goes on but it all comes together in the end. Third person POV that jumps from certain people. You don't need to read the first one to be able to follow this one but it might help just to get the established characters down and the whole idea of the Family's true business.

In a moment of doubt months earlier, she sent an anonymous email to the FBI telling them part of her story—how she came to be part of the group and her less-than-fond feelings about it at that moment, & it brought FBI agent Leif

THE PRICE OF GRACE is the second story in the intense Romantic Suspense series, Black Ops Confidential by Diana Munoz Stewart. There are so many layers, twists, and turns to Gracie’s and Dusty’s story that both provide a tense, fast-paced story, but also that the reader needs to be paying attention as things might fly past without giving them the attention due. (and that is as close as I’m going to come to a spoiler).

There is a lot going on in THE PRICE OF GRACE. I

The Price of Grace was a unique romantic suspense with tough characters. This is the second book in Black Ops Confidential series from Diana Munoz Stewart.

The story follows vigilante, Gracie Parish. She didn't grow up in with the best childhood memories but was taken in by the infamous Parish family. She was trained with others to become part of a vigilante sisterhood. No one must know about this so keeping this a secret is key.

Special Agent Leif "Dusty" McAllister is determined to be the

First of all, I absolutely adore this series and that's weird for me because I didn't think I would. It's about the daughters in a family of vigilantes and that's not usually my thing. But mix in some sad backstories and some good ol' fashion sexiness and you've got me hooked.

I'd sort of forgotten what happened in the first book in the series, I Am Justice, but Diana Munoz Stewart does a great job of refreshing the memories of those that read the first book while also explaining things for those

So... I read the first one and I liked it even though I didn't like the main character, Justice. She was almost too alpha for me. In this one we have Gracie and Dusty, and I liked Gracie here... thought Dusty was kind of an asshole? I mean, I came around and I liked them together and their chemistry but it took me a good chunk of the book to get there.

I will say this one is hard to put down because SO MUCH happens in this book and it almost feels like you're constantly bombarded with new

The Price of Grace is the second book in a series that although it can be read as a stand alone it has a lot of overarching plots connected to the first book that its best to read this series in chronological order. But the series itself is really great to read especially if you have a lot of anger about societal issues with regards to women and children being abused. This is one vigilante family you really want on your side. There is a lot of violence and sex but there is a strong plot and ...more

The Price of Grace is the second book in the Black Ops Confidential series. This is Gracie and Dusty's story. I have to say that I did enjoy this one a bit more than the first book. I liked Gracie and Dusty together. Their relationship was more believable. The book has a lot packed into it and is full of action. I'm not sure if I would say that this could be read as a stand alone. It has been over a year since I read the first book and it took me a while to reorient myself to the series. I would ...more

The Price of Grace is a fast paced, thrill ride of a romance novel!


Gracie Parish, adopted by a family of vigilantes, has been living a life of extremes, when in walks a smoldering FBI agent who turns all she used to know upside down!


Add into the mix her estranged son, a young orphan girl with something to prove, and a politician with an enormous secret and you’ve got an epic story filled with action movie sequences and romance novel fire.

I’ve never read anything by this author before so I didn’t know what to expect. The book starts out promising but just fell short for me. Grace is a club owner and a member of a vigilante family. She has lots of secrets and someone is trying to harm her. Dusty is a FBI agent investigating her family.He is drawn to her. There is a lot going on sometimes to much. I didn’t love this book but I didn’t hate it. I’m just somewhere in the middle.

Great read that keeps you on the edge of your seat through to the very end. So much action and mystery it leaves you guessing as to how it all comes together and admittedly I didn’t have it all figured out and I really enjoyed that.

The only issue I had was that the book seemed to jump all over at times and I’d have to go back to make sure I was following right so it took me a little longer to read than normal.

Great book! This book was about Grace and Dusty. You can read it as a stand alone. Grace is the owner of a club. On the side she rescues abused women. She is part of an intriguing family by the name of Parrish. Dusty is an FBI agent sent to investigate the Parrish family and their extracurricular activities. Can Grace and Dusty get past her family and what the do to find a love of their own?

I read this book as an arc from NetGalley

Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This was a decent undercover romance with a spunky heroine determined to save innocent people and finding her way back to her son. The hero is a hot, undercover cowboy who becomes protective and attracted to Dusty but the secrets between makes it hard to trust each other. Action packed and hot.

This is the second book in the series . I liked it as much as the first . I like that the central characters are women . Grace is torn between what her family does and what she believes is right. In the course of this story both her and Dusty come to the realization that it is not black and white.
The romance is instant and hot . It also keeps the story moving .

It’s hard to review this one without spoilers. There are so many fantastic twists and turns, emotion, sizzle. When you think you know where it’s going...it’s not! I Am Justice fans will NOT be disappointed. IMO, The Price Of Grace is even better. And I almost just accidentally included a spoiler. Delete! Find out for yourself.

I purchased the audiobook and it was fantastic. I was sucked into the story right away, and didn’t want to stop listening. I love the premise of a family of women vigilantes and it’s a great romantic suspense that will keep you guessing. The reader on the audiobook was very good. Enjoy the read!
