Hard-driving attorney Jo Pomeroy is as determined as she is sexy—in other words, a major pain in NYPD Sergeant Gabe Townsend’s butt. Working together on a high-profile task force charged with busting sales of counterfeit goods has been rocky from the start. And Jo’s penchant for trouble is as difficult to ignore as her spectacular legs.
The world of knock-offs isn’t as frivolous as it appears. The purses are fake, but the danger is all too real—and Jo seems hell-bent on putting herself in the middle of it. Her investigations have uncovered valuable leads for Gabe’s team, but they’ve also drawn the wrong kind of attention.
Now, she’s on the radar of a mysterious smuggler not afraid to use violence to evade the law. At the risk of their lives—and their hearts—Gabe and Jo must find him before he finds them.
The Chase by Adrienne Giordano
First book in the Justifiable Cause series. Jo and Gabe have a good working relationship and lots of chemistry between them.
Adrienne Giordano has written a good suspenseful and romantic story. Good start to the series.
~I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.~
Jo Pomeroy is an attorney with a client who is tired of the knockoff making them loose money. She gets the NY mayor to create a task force to battle the knockoffs. NYPD Sergeant Gabe Townsend thinks she is a big pain who takes risks which could get her injured or killed. Sparks keep flying between them until things reach a boiling point in all manners.
Adrienne introduces two strong minded characters who keep the story moving along at a fast pace. Will be reading the rest of the series to see how Gabe and Jo handle their sparks as the work hard to crack the counterfeit items ring.
Grabs you from page one and doesn't let go! If you love crime/suspense novels, you're going to love this book. It has incredible descriptions, great characters, and an enjoyable storyline. Highly recommended.
