In the Crossfire is the fourth book in the Circle of Justice series but can be read as a standalone if you haven't already enjoyed the previous novels. The book follows Bryce Chandler as he goes undercover in the Corsino family in order to eliminate one of his targets. But in doing so, he also gets close to Layla and has a major change of plans.

Bryce and Layla's story was one crazy ride. I was left guessing almost the entire time and was not su

This book kept me on my toes for the most part. It has its ups and downs and the ups definitely kept me interested. FBI agent falling for his Mafia mark's daughter, who would of thought? Their love for each other is genuine and pure and they both would do anything to protect each other. I loved how the author's writing made it so easy for me to picture everything I was reading. The attention to detail was on point.

I hope to be able to read more about Bryce and Layla in the future and

In the Crossfire is the fourth book in the Circle of Justice series. Each book can be read as standalone in the series. I started from the beginning and have enjoyed each of them. If you read the previous books then you know Bryce Chandler. And now he is Bryce Collman. A killer. A man part of one of the most feared Mafia families from the past.

Bryce was New York to take out his mark, Anthony Corsino. Mafia boss and a man who is high on the FBI list who need to be taken out. He though

WOWSIE. I can’t believe I haven’t read any of the others. I love Romantic Suspense and this fulfilled my suspense loving heart. This is not my first LP Dover book...more like my 9th or 10th. She never disappoints and always leaves me wanting even more.

He's an FBI agent and a trained assassin for the Circle of Justice.
Bryce Chandler is the biggest mystery out of the Chandler family. He has been undercover in NYC for over a year. Why you ask, for two reasons. 3 members of the Corsino family are on th Circle's kill list. The other reason is because the FBI wants to take the family down. Bryce is really good at his job and he has figured out a way in to the inner circle...What he didn't figure on was Layla Corsino. She beautiful and she's Anthon

Bryce’s book was definitely worth the wait. I was hooked from the beginning and I couldn’t put it down. I love L.P. Dover’s books and I can’t wait for the next one. This book is a must read.

Bryce Chandler is a member of the Circle of Justice, a cover organization of the FBI, who deals with criminals who seem able to get away with crimes that the justice system can't get them for. Basically, they're like really cool snipers as their lists only contain the really bad guys who can get off on loopholes or pay off people. He's been deep undercover for a cool minute to do bad things to catch the eye of Anthony Corsino, a name that no one can seem to cross off, as he's a super baddie in t ...more

Holy Firecracker! In The Crossfire was one suspenseful read. I go through my phases where I really want a book that keeps me on the edge of my seat, one that is dark and dangerous, and this one had all the above. I have read L.P. Dover before, but nothing from this series or nothing pertaining to anything close to this trope. L.P. Dover has some dope skills. The writing is flawless and done with such great detail, that it made it easy for me to start and not stop until the words ' The End ' were ...more

This was such a great book with lots of twists and turns that kept me flipping pages as fast as I could!

I loved Bryce and was eager for his book after glimpses of him in previous books. I knew he was deep undercover and I couldn’t wait to get his side of his story. I loved his job and was curious how he would do undercover as you know right from the beginning that something will happen between him and Layla.

I really liked Layla and you could tell that she knew certain things about her dad’s bus

Deep dark family secrets, lies, hidden plans, power struggles, lots of steam, this book has it all! Between Anthony and his power trip to soar to the top at whatever cost, even his daughter, to Bryce and his secret life, this book is action packed from beginning to end. While this is book four in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.

Layla has been kept in the dark from her family secrets. She'd always been surrounded by  bodyguards her whole life and now they were disappearing. Her one a

This is the fourth installment in the Circle of Justice series, with characters from the other books weaved in, but the series is a standalone series and you don’t have to read the others to keep up with what’s going on. After reading this story though, if you haven’t read the others (Trigger, Target, and Aim) you’ll want to.
Bryce Chandler’s good at what he does. He’s one of the top men in the Circle of Justice, the clandestine FBI branch known for taking out those people who have done horrendo

WOW! Another amazing story from this incredible series! I have always been someone who isn't really that into the mafia romance trope, but LP Dover's Circle of Justice series is so very much more than that and I absolutely love it!!! Her writing style just draws me in and no matter what she writes and I know I am going to be entertained. I would love to see this series made into movies! This 4th book in the series is about the very sexy, very intense Bryce Chandler, who has been a bit of a myste ...more

Layla saw something she liked and she knew just how to get it. That woman has some serious tenacity! I have always enjoyed a smart heroine and Layla is that and so much more.
Her father and brother have always kept her somewhat 'protected' , oh she knew deep down the truth of her family business. When push came to shove she wasn't about to be put on a shelf. Claws extended she would get the truth and a little something for her pleasure while she was at it.

“Mob Princess and the Assassin, 5 stars”

Bryce knew going undercover into the mob was going to be difficult only he didn’t realize how hard it really would be. He didn’t expect Layla. Layla is nothing like her father. Will he be able to keep his distance from her and get the job done? Or will his heart get in the way?
Layla knows she doesn’t know what goes on behind the scenes where her father and his business is concerned. When Bryce brings the truth forward, she wants

This is the fourth book in the Circle of Justice series. It is a standalone and you won't be lost if this is where you start. Bryce's brothers don't play a huge role in this story and neither do their stories. You won't be lost by starting here. But you will want to go back and read the rest of the books.

Bryce is pretending to be from an old prominent mafia family that disappeared a long time ago. They haven't been heard from since, so it's easy for him to pretend and get others to believe him.

YES!! The entire series has been great but all the little kernels left about Bryce made me dying to read his story. Finally we get to see what happened to him when he was undercover. Great suspense with just the right amount of romance in this one.

Bryce should not want Layla. She is his charge to protect and daughter of the man he intends to take down. But the heart being such a fickle organ, doesn't get the message. They are both drawn to each other and when Layla needs to go into h
