Jordan Erichsohn suspects something is rotten about his boss, Judge Crawford. Unfortunately he has nowhere to turn and doubts anyone will believe his claims—least of all the handsome deputy, Pierre Ravelle, who has been assigned to protect the judge, as he’s been receiving the threatening letters. The judge has a long reach, and if he finds out Jordan’s turned on him, he might impede Jordan adopting his son, Jeremiah.
When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally… and maybe more. Pierre vows to do what it takes to protect Jordan and Jeremiah and see justice done. He’s willing to fight for the man he’s growing to love and the family he’s starting to think of as his own. But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself….
What an incredible read. It has mystery. It has dirty judges. It has cops. It has a small amount of danger. And it has love. So basically what is not to like? Andrew Grey has another winner on his hands. And to think this is only book one in the Carlisle Deputies series. That means more cops are to come…Yay!!!!
Jordan is an amazing man that just does not see how amazing he truly is. He met a little boy named Jeremiah while he was receiving treatment for cancer in the hospital. Jeremiah was all alone and a ward of the state so Jordan decided to become a foster parent and is now in the process of adopting him. Jordan also works for Judge Crawford as an assistant to him. The problem there lies in the fact that Jordan stumbled upon information that did not paint Judge Crawford in very good light. Now the more that Jordan knows the more concerned he is.
When Judge Crawford starts receiving threatening letters from an anonymous source, a police officer is called in to protect and watch over the Judge and try to figure out who is behind the threats. The man called in is Pierre. From the moment Pierre met Jordan he knew this man was special.
When he runs into Jordan out not long after meeting him and a family emergency arises with Jeremiah, Pierre is there to help Jordan out and support him through the crisis. This is what turns out to be the beginning of something amazing.
The only problem is Jordan still has the info in the Judge and is now ready to trust someone else with his information. Once more and more information starts to come to light, that is when the danger really begins. Can Pierre protect Jordan and Jeremiah while trying to get all the information that is NEEDED against the Judge?
Andrew Grey is one of the authors that knows how to twist a story together in order to make a fabulous read with both danger and mystery along with love. I always love reading Andrew’s books. I look forward to the next book in this series.
