Ng together and the truth comes out but is not to Put Her Heart On her heart on line again and forgive Seth should have her a chanceThe attraction between and Christy sure knows how to give us

blend of romance suspense and sizzling characters ARC received through Netgalley Sweet Justice by Christy ReeceLast Chance Rescue 7Published by Ballantine September 06 2011 Romantic Suspense4 StarsReview Sweet Justice by Christy Reece is a great addition to the Last Chance Rescue series This book focuses on Honor and Seth who have a history together They were a couple when Seth breaks Honor s heart and leaves her in order to complete his undercover assignment which Honor knew nothing about The bulk of this story takes place five years later when that meet again to work an assignment for Last Chance Rescue Seth has hired Last Chance Rescue to find his missing niece The sparks once again fly between Seth and Honor and Christy Reece weaves a story that is action packed Great reunited lovers story within Reece s Last Chance Rescue world The hero Sean s niece has gone missing from her college in Iowa and he seeks LCR s help to find her What he doesn t know is that Honor the woman whose love he sacrificed years ago for an undercover op now works for LCR and will be heading up the team looking for his niece The blurb read as if Honor spends the whole book in deep undercover inside a cult leader s compound which was thankfully not the case Instead there s a lot of investigative work and sexytimes leading up to the discovery of the compound and the high octane rescue Totally satisfying romance and an excellent glimpse inside the mind of a charismatic creepy cult leader Since this is the 7th book the the series but my first I ve got some delicious backlist to devour Which I plan to do ASAP The romance part of this rom suspense novel was excellent evenly balanced with the suspense all the way through As always Christy Reece solidly delivers in bk 7 of the LCR series Actually this is the start of her 3rd trilogy although I would think a new reader would be lost without starting at the beginning with Rescue Me Even though I knew Seth and Honor would get their HEA I found myself anxious for their relationship Every hero in this series is I want one heart thumping fantastic Seth goes down as one of my favorites His incredible commitment and self sacrificeLosing his family his love and a part of himself all for the sake of ustice Okay and the fact that he was OMG hot sexy giving and adorable doesn t hurt my admiration for him either The guy had skills His angst at wanting to go all alpha and protect Honor was heart melting The suspense while exciting and a non stop action thrill the villains were so disgustingly creepy it was hard to read I found myself cringing when having to read the parts about that evil Alden and that vile Tabitha This duo was off the charts offensive on so many levels What a mind screw for CR to even come up with this plot and then having to write it in detail Props CR for the extreme creepy Not sure I d re read this bk due to the suee factor however the love scenes between Seth and Honor deserve a re visit 4 stars Romantic SuspenseThis is another thrilling addition to Christy Reece s excellent Last Chance Rescue series With tortured survivor heroes and heroines creepy villains chilling plotlines intense action packed suspense and steamy romance LCR is one of my favorite romantic suspense series and it s still going strong after seven books I can t wait for Dylan s and Jamie s story Sweet Revenge nextI highly recommend this series for romantic suspense fans of authors like Roxanne St Claire Karen Rose Allison Brennan and Jami Alden Although the series is best read in order this particular story could work well as a standalone read Former Houston Detective Seth Cavanaugh has to suddenly and brutally sever his relationship with FBI Agent Honor Stone in order to protect her Now it s five years later and she s an LCR operative and he needs their help in finding his niece who s disappeared They re thrown together for the mission and both are struggling with their unresolved feelings I loved these two characters and how they dealt with each other when they were forced to reconnect Theirs was a mature relationship and neither shied away from being honest and forthright about their feelingsno silly drawn out dramajust two people struggling to cope and communicate while on the The Thermals of August job The case was unusual in that it focused on a delusional and dangerous cult leader unknown to anyone Finding the connections was problematic and the realities inside the commune were hideous The ending was exciting as always and Honor was particularly impressive I loved the romance and the suspense surrounding this investigation Everything worked 45 star. Le steering clear of the passion and need that’sust one touch away from explosion Seth knows he had all the right reasons for the wrong he did five years ago And from the moment he sees her and takes her in his arms again this former undercover man will risk everything for one chance with Honor.

The seventh book in the series Last Chance Rescue by Christy Reece A gripping and exciting romantic suspense that I would highly recommend to anyone who loves a good balance of romance and suspense Our hero Seth Cavanaugh and heroine Honor Stone have a past together but Seth broke it off when he realized the danger he was bringing to Honor Seth went undercover to bring down a really bad dude but couldn t reveal the truth to his family or the woman that he had already fallen in love with Okay fast forward about 5 years Seth is no longer undercover and has relocated himself away from his family to Florida when his brother calls Seth s niece is missing and the family is hoping that Seth will be able to find her since the police haven t Seth contacts LCR and the investigation begins Review posted Happily Ever After Reads 5 years earlier She d held out her hand and given him a small simple smile That s all it had taken for him to fall in love with her Silently he d pulled her out onto the postage sized dance floor and holding her close started to dance Instead of telling him to back off that he was going too fast holding her too tight Honor had put her head on his shoulder and glided with him around the small space Later he d asked her why she d gone into his arms so easily A mysterious smile had curved her beautiful lush mouth but she had never answered the uestion Seth had instantly forgotten what that uestion was When Honor smiledHe d trade an entire fortune if he had one for one of her smiles Sweet Justice starts out 5 years ago with Honor and Seth together in a relationship that has so much promise Honor thinks he s the one They re both in love but Seth s life is beyond complicated He s forced to push away his family his friends and Honor all to be able to bring down one man for life He has to lie to everyone that he loves and make sure that they believe the worst in him and they do He breaks Honor s heart breaking his own in the process but it s the only way he knows to protect her Honor has tried to move on for the past 5 years She worked for the FBI but after working with Last Chance Rescue on a few cases she finally caves to Noah s offer and oins LCR Even though she was crushed when Seth left her she s tried hard to move past him which makes her very career focused but she s never been able to connect with another guy and hasn t really tried With Seth s original reason for pushing his family and friends away over he s finding that their forgiveness for lying to them may never come He s isolated himself in Florida until his brother calls him frantic that Kelli Seth s niece has been missing for days Seth has the background to help find her and when all the leads he comes up with dead end he calls LCR For Their Help Our Favorite Match Maker Noah Puts for their help Our favorite match maker Noah puts as the lead on the case for finding Seth s niece Honor and Seth go from a sweet relationship with tons of potential to heartache and now they re thrown back together to find not only Kelli but other young women who ve gone missing For Seth he s never stopped loving Honor and when he comes clean about why he did what he did all those years ago she struggles at first with it and rightfully so I liked that while she understood why he did it she still had a lot issues with how he handled everything and it takes some time for them to work through it all Which is hard to do when you re trying to track down an unknown persons who s abducting women from all over the country I really enjoyed the relationship between Honor and Seth I like the setup of these two having had a strong connection in the past that was broken and watching them find their way back together Honor s very hesitant and initially only agrees to be with him through the duration of the case she ust can t risk her heart to him again I thought their relationship took a nice path through the book nothing is resolved easily and slowly things start to mend between them once the truth about what was going on comes out The softly vulnerable woman he d held in his arms the sweetly fragrant woman he d licked tasted and savored He d felt the delicacy of her satin skin knew the vulnerability and softness of her slender body To the rest of the world Honor might be a tough hard nosed no nonsense woman with a gun To Seth she was simply his heart Now the baddies of the story we have a man who s the leader or father of a commune type community named Tranuility I Guess The Best Way To Describe guess the best way to describe would be sleazy Over the years he s created his perfect world with followers who do what he says when he says and ask no uestions As far as an enemy goes he and his daughter fit the bill I did find myself pulling out of the story a bit when the scenes moved
to Tranuility for a few reasons the biggest being Alden and his daughter having an incredibly inappropriate relationship his daughter has been brainwashed along with the others for her entire life and has a vicious streak that s simply evil Their relationship was unsettling and the treatment of the new recruits women brought into their development against their will are slowly abused and trained to forget their life prior to Tranuility We get to see this world through the Honor Stone is a young idealistic FBI agent when her path collides with Seth Cavanaugh For a girl who has never walked on the wild side the dark and dangerous Seth is a temptation she can’t refuse But then Seth walks out the door and out of her life Five years later Honor is an operative with the. Yes of one of the new girls captured and brought here Anna While I loved getting some of the details from her I thought it was a little odd that we didn t get this information from Seth s niece Kelli who was also being held here Overall I enjoyed Seth and Honor and watching them reconnect and actually talk about things on their mind only brought them closer together and made me like them all the I love seeing LCR and all the agents in action The other agents always have nice supporting roles and it allows us to be introduced to the characters with stories still to come It was nice to reconnect with the LCR team and I m looking forward to the next book Sweet Revenge In the debut novel of her third trilogy Christy Reece churns out yet another fantastic opener I absolutely devoured this book It s my favorite kind of romance where the hero and heroine are reunited or share a past history Reece easily conveys their feelings the heartbreak and the love from both the past and present It is fantastic The two reminded me a little of Gabe and Skylar of No Chance and Sweet Justice truly gives that one a run for its spot as my favorite Reece book With no secondary storyline the book focuses solely on SethHonor and the mission to rescue the missing female college students As for the kidnapping I liked the type of villainenemy that she chose and how the story progressed in a believable wayI really enjoy how Reece has set up her LCR books in separate but connected trilogies The books retain the common thread of the organization its goals and habit of reuniting lovers Five years previously Seth and Honor had fallen in love at the worst possible time during the start of a deep cover sting that Seth knows will pretty much destroy his life if it doesn t end it completely Fearing for Honor s safety he ruthlessly broke it off with herNow Seth is out of the undercover operation but still not back to anything resembling normal life But when his college aged niece disappears apparently one in a series of missing young women Seth is forced to turn to Last Chance Rescue for help in finding her the organization where Honor now worksI enjoyed this as a reunion romance neither Seth nor Honor has ever gotten over the other but there s a lot of pain and mistrust they need to work through before they can truly be together Their feelings for each other are essential to the plot especially at one point when Honor is in terrible danger Though the room was dark Honor closed her eyes and thought about Seth Keeping him at the forefront she knew without a doubt she could survive whatever these monsters threw at her Seth would be her light in the darkness I also liked that despite a premise in which women are inherently victimized there are portrayals of strong women in the story and Honor is no helplessly waiting for rescue by SethThe rest of the strong women in the story and Honor is no helplessly waiting for rescue by SethThe rest of the didn t work as well for me The villains here are seriously upsetting incestuous sadistic murderers and rapists Their operation is not very plausible but importantly I didn t feel the story had enough emotional depth to balance out how truly sickening they are The details aren t graphic but still this is not for the sueamish Another downside was that several interesting threads ust peter out There was what seemed to be an interesting subplot in which one member of the lcr team which one member of the LCR team obsessed with one of the missing women a plain shy girl who no one had noticed missing for weeks This was then abruptly dropped We see one of the resourceful kidnapped girls escaping and follow her adventures for awhile Then this too is droppedThis is 7th in the overall series and the first in the 3rd three book set I haven t read any of the others but didn t feel at all lost I enjoyed it enough to give the author another try though if meglomaniac evil villains are a recurring theme she s probably not for meReviewed from e arc provided by netGalley Rating 35Sweet Justice is "The Start Of The " start of the Last Chance Trilogy and a brilliant start it is Honor is someone we have met before she works
