Blog Tour Stop & Giveaway ~ Redeeming Justice by Suzanne Halliday


Redeeming Justice
Justice Brothers #3
Published July 9th 2014


~Synopsis~

Sometimes …Happily Ever After comes with a price

Alex Marquez wears many hats. Sometimes he’s the slightly patrician Don of a family with deep Spanish roots. Other times he’s a brilliant tech-God and CEO of an exclusive security agency. He’s also a boss, a musician, and a fierce friend. At the core though he’s a former Special Forces Commander, wounded in action, haunted by the heavy burdens of regret and what ifs that linger to this day. For him, personal redemption would never come. Too much darkness, not enough light.

And then Meghan O’Brien swoops into his life. She’s a ball busting curvy goddess who instantly pushes all Alex’s buttons.

When ghosts from the past threaten to destroy their relationship, Alex pushes her away. Meghan has a promising life ahead while his was blown to bits in a war zone. Hurt and bewildered, she comes to realize that loving Alex as she did was not a guarantee of an easy future. He had demons and if she took him on, those nightmares and the emotional aftermath were going to be coming along for the ride.

Was the redemption Alex sought to be found in her arms? Would finding his soul through the love of another finally send the demons packing and lay the past to rest?

So. What do you think? How soon will it take Big Daddy to screw things up? After all, we've both been there, done that with these Justice Brothers.”
Hmmm. You have a good point,” Tori replied. “Draegyn was the Crown Prince of Denial and like you've said, Cameron was a runner. I wonder what fuckery Alex has up his sleeve.”

~If there is one thing I have learned to expect from the Justice Brothers, it's to buckle in for a bumpy ride. Sexy as hell, Yes; but chock full of emotion and heartbreak. This installment did not disappoint~

~Alex 'Big Daddy' Marquez is a man of many faces; Boss man, Family man, Tech guru, and Genius. But buried underneath it all is a man haunted by his past, living with self-imposed guilt over the lives lost under his command while serving in the Special Forces and dealing everyday with the painful reminders of his time in Afghanistan. Watching his fellow Justice Brothers find the loves of their lives and start families is a heavy reminder of all that is missing from his life, and all that he feels he doesn't deserve. But he's learning to make peace with it, as best he can, til a fiery Irish Goddess comes crashing into his life completely upending it and throwing him off his perfectly controlled balance.

He's brilliant, in a scary, are you fucking kidding me way. You'd be amazed at the well known people and high powered organizations that come around begging for his expertise.”
But the man's an island unto himself,” Lacey added. “It's like he knows something the rest of us mere mortals don't. Everyone that is except our husbands.”

~Meghan 'Irish' O'Brien is a self-proclaimed BBBB (Ball Busting Boston Bitch). An Irish beauty with a take no bull attitude who has no problem calling people out on their shit. A former teacher with a thirst for knowledge and adventure on a cross-country road trip. When she makes her way through Arizona, she decides to drop in on an old acquaintance; someone who helped her through a dark time in her life, though she has never met him face to face. Nothing could have prepared her for what would happen when she dropped in on Major Alex Marquez, or how swiftly and irrecoverably her life would change after that fateful day.

There is no denying the intense attraction between the two, or the connection they form right from the start; but nothing is ever easy when falling for a Justice Brother. Demons and guilt block their path at every turn, Alex masters the art of the push/pull tug-of-war, and control is something he needs in every aspect of his life. Loving Alex will never be easy, he comes with a closet-full of emotional baggage he may never be able to get rid of, and he will push her away at every turn thinking she deserves better; is she strong enough to take all that on, does she love him enough to be able to help him through his darkness, and most importantly-will he let her?

From the second you walked through my door I've thought of nothing but being inside you, Meghan. I want to fuck you so hard that you won't be able to walk afterward. Be so deep that you'll feel the imprint of my cock forever. Watching you come has become like an obsession and I don't know what to do about it.”

I very quickly became addicted to this series and all of it's characters. These guys are one of a kind; they are sexy, dominate, loyal....and kinda dumb when it comes to love. I mean really, they wear the asshat badge so very well but at least they eventually come to realize it and go above and beyond to fix what they broke. They are a family and stand by each other through anything, even if they are the bringers of their own problems. I knew right from the get go that Alex's struggles would most likely be the worst, just because of his severe inner struggles with guilt. I was not wrong. The only difference was, this one snuck up on me; the author had me feeling pretty damn comfortable before it all epically blew up in my face. Even with his bright shining moment of douchdom, I fell in love with Big Daddy in a big way. I just wanted him to find the happiness he thought he didn't deserve, and FYI-dude was smokin friggin hott in the bedroom...or wherever ;) Once again insta-love was thick in the air, which generally drives me batshit crazy, but it was buried behind so much denial and fear that it was easy for me to look past it. I loved getting back into the lives off all of the characters, seeing where the other brothers and their wives were was amazing and the way they immediately took to Meghan, especially the wives, fed my hope for their futures. I was EXSTATIC to learn that there would be at least one more book in this series, I am far from ready to say goodbye to this crew. Suzanne Halliday has most definitely landed herself a permanent spot on my 'One-Click Addiction' list and I don't see that ever changing.

He was overcome with the deluge of feelings her presence in his life invited. It was heart-pounding, kiss-me-till-I'm-dying passion wrapped in a perfect cloud of love. He couldn't breathe without her in his life. It sounded so simple when he put it like that.
