Choices Are Easy When You Have Nothing Left To Lose

Kennedy O’Connell had all the happiness she’d ever dreamed–until someone stole it away. Now on the run for her life, she has a choice to make–disappear forever or make those responsible pay. Her choice is easy. Two men want to help her, each with their own agenda. Detective Nick Gallagher is accustomed to pursuing killers within the law. Targeted for death, his life turned inside out, Nick vows to bring down those responsible, no matter the cost. But the beautiful and innocent Kennedy O’Connell brings out every protective instinct. Putting aside his own need for vengeance, he’ll do whatever is necessary to keep her safe and help her achieve her goals. Billionaire philanthropist Grey Justice has a mission, too. Dubbed the ‘White Knight’ of those in need of a champion, few people are aware of his dark side. Having seen and experienced injustice–Grey knows its bitter taste. Gaining justice for those who have been wronged is a small price to pay for a man’s humanity. With the help of a surprising accomplice, the three embark on a dangerous game of cat and mouse. The stage is set, the players are ready…the game is on. But someone is playing with another set of rules and survivors are not an option.

Married to Narcotics Detective Thomas O’Connell and expecting their first child, Kennedy O’Connell finally has her happiness after a rough upbringing. Then someone takes it all away. She decides to make those responsible pay. Her husband’s best friend, Detective Nick Gallagher, also wants them to pay but not at Kennedy expense. Billionaire philanthropist Grey Justice also has an agenda to make them pay but needs Kennedy’s help to take them down.

This is the first book in Christy Reece’s newest series. Action packed with well written characters and suspenseful storyline. Cannot wait for more books in this series and learning more about Grey Justice and Irelyn and what has led them onto to this path.

I’m a huge fan of Christy’s LCR series and I’m sure this series won’t disappoint.

Grey Justice Group

There’s more than one path to justice

Justice isn’t always swift or fair and only those who have felt the pain of denied justice can truly understand its bitter taste. But justice delayed doesn’t have to be justice denied. Enter the Grey Justice Group, ordinary citizens swept up in extraordinary circumstances. Led by billionaire philanthropist Grey Justice, this small group of operatives gains justice for victims when other paths have failed.

51CGp315+wL._SY200_ Growing up in a tiny Alabama community boasting only one stop sign and a gas station gave Christy ample opportunity to create daring adventures in her head. When she wasn’t thinking of her story characters, Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys kept her entertained and out of trouble. Later came the chills of Stephen King and the thrills of John Grisham, but the romance genre always held a strong place in her heart.

When she’s not writing or spending time with her wonderful family, she still loves to read. A suspenseful story full of drama, angst, suspense, mystery, and romance is still her favorite. Throw in a happy ever after and she is one happy camper.

Christy lives in Alabama with her husband and a menagerie of fur-kids.
