Complicating things further, Piper finds herself fighting a powerful attraction to rookie cop, Bobby Wright. Although she's increasingly enamored with Bobby, his staunch belief in the justice system is in stark contrast to her own. She may not share his opinions about the effectiveness of the law, but she certainly can't deny how safe she feels when she's in his arms or how every kiss leaves her desperate for more.
For Piper, the idea of finally living an ordinary life with a man to love is tempting. However, fate keeps placing the judge, quite literally, in her path. Will she decide the only way to win is to be as wicked as the judge, but with righteous intentions? And more importantly, will Bobby choose to let her go, or follow her as she crosses the line and takes justice into her own hands?

Book 1 in a fighting for justice story
Piper Anderson, a recently relocated newcomer, accidentally witnesses an acclaimed public figure commit an assault on a underage girl and decides taking the matter in her own hands will be the only way to have justice served. Having been disillusioned during her second year of criminal justice classes, Piper is wary of the entire court system and most people in general. She is befriended by a wonderful older character, Betty, who gives her friendship and the warm caring she has never had before. Betty, in turn, introduces her to the rest of the key players.
The cast of characters definitely enhances this story:
Bobby, a rookie cop, will melt your hearts: "I want to hold you until I can't figure out where I end and you begin."
Michael, a prosecuting attorney, is sweet on Piper and always there for her to lean on: "He had done exactly what she needed, been there for her without needing to be everything to her."
Betty and her daughter Jules are the epitome of southern hospitality, right down to the wonderful porch swing and endearing phrases: "Trying to get her to understand is like trying to nail jelly to a tree."
And finally, Piper, a troubled loner hiding from her past, will tear at your hearts when the truth is known: "There had to be a place in this world for my idea of justice, and if there wasn't I was damn sure going to do everything I could to make room for it."
Robin Rowan's narration definitely brings each character to life.
This is the first in a series and the relationship between Bobby and Piper promises to be developed throughout the series. The more I learned about Piper's past, the more I was fighting for her to get the justice she was looking for. There were parts of the book that slowed down my pace, but by the end, I wanted to move on to the second book - now just waiting for the audiobook do to so.
