Justice by Rie Warren Blog Tour

Fight to win.
Fight to survive.
Fight for love?


Let’s face it. I’ve got a bad rep with the ladies. I’m a rough-talking, smooth-loving, international playboy—yeah right, whatever—and an X-Ops specialist. Sure, I’m hiding a secret or two. Who isn’t? That’s the least of my concerns when I’m called in to lead an infiltrate-and-retrieve mission.

I’ve got my head in the game—the one firmly attached to my shoulders. An American embassy overseas is under siege, and I’m expecting to rescue the ambassador and his daughter, a stereotypical geeky damsel in distress, Matilda Lawless.

Caught in the crossfire between explosive danger and wild desire, I’m in for the shock of my life.


I’m not looking for any man to save me. I’m pretty damn capable of taking care of myself, thank you very much. I have a successful career and was practically born and bred on a gun range, even if I can’t bake a perfect biscuit to save my life like a good southern woman should.

But there’s just something about that hardcore operative called Justice. He’s haunted and lonely, and I know that pain inside and out. It doesn’t hurt one little bit he’s been blessed with more than his fair share of good looks, plus a body that would make any red-blooded woman drool.

Barricaded inside the embassy, under my father’s shrewd eyes, I intend to have Justice no matter how many times he says he’s not good enough. I see the way he watches me. With dirty, sexy, hungry lust.

Fighting is what Justice does. Now I need him to fight for me.

Warning: Graphic sex, graphic action, graphic language. Triple X caution.

Four X-Ops alpha men. Four feisty wicked women. Four books you’ll want to sink your teeth into. Bad Boys of X-Ops.

“I think you’d best get some rest, Matilda.” My voice came out low but razor sharp, my words blunt and unmuffled.

If I had to be an asshole to her to maintain the necessary distance I would, because the suddenness of wanting her so damn much was painful.

And futile.

And stupid beyond belief.

Tsk.” She waltzed into the room all bare, tan legs and warm, soft scent.

Her fingers flicked at my forehead, and I reared back in surprise.

“Tilly, Ah told you. Only my grandmother has ever called me Matilda, and she’s so stiff I think she was molded into the apron she put on after she got married in 1948. I am not a Matilda.”

First of all, I couldn’t believe she’d flicked me. Me! A goddamn ex-marine and special operative.

And second, a grin crept up one side of my mouth, but I swallowed down the laugh that wanted to follow.

“What’s that?” Tilly pointed at the notebook resting in my lap.

Uh.” Fuck. I’d completely forgotten about the damn thing. “Nothing.” I quickly rolled it up and stashed it in my pocket. “Bullshit on pages. Gonna make a bonfire out of it later.”

I pulled out a throwing star I always flipped back and forth between my fingers. It flashed like lightning, throwing sparks of light across the room.

A much more manly pursuit.

Jesus. I am losing it.

Maybe I need some sleep after all.

I groaned.

Tilly plopped right down beside me with upraised legs, leaning the back of her head against the wall. “God, but it’s hot in here.”

Plucking at her shirt that ballooned before settling back against the firm round hills of her tits, she rolled her head toward me. “Justin, right?”

I met her eyes for a moment to see the twinkle in her irises.

“Justice.” I growled.

“Justice? Hmm. Justice what?”

“I’m not giving out that information.” I made my frown as formidable as ever, but I could tell she didn’t give a shit.

She leaned close enough her warm breath caressed my ear. “Who would I tell?”

“Chase...Justice Chase.” The words tumbled from my mouth.

She clapped a hand over her mouth to withhold a giggle. “Well, that’s not so bad, is it? Imagine if it was Chase Justice.”

“It’s not that.” Maybe a little. “No one’s supposed to know...who I really am.”

“Lawless and Justice, huh?” Her hand found my forearm, and her fingers squeezed the steel cable muscles. “Sounds like an outlaw movie. The next big blockbuster. I promise to keep your secret, Justice Chase.”

Spunky Tilly somehow lifted all the fatigue from my body, and I aimed a feral grin at her.

Her eyelashes fluttered. Her smile became a softer curve of her lips.

Her fingers traced all the way down to my wrist where a pulse pounded a heavy beat before she skimmed her hand to my thigh and down to the floor between us.

She made my body thump and my blood race. She made sensations fire like a network of heat to the center of my groin.

Maybe it was just the day, the night, the adrenaline rush that hadn't worn off and probably wouldn't. The same thing happened with every op—unleashed energy I usually slaked afterward by fucking. Fucking hard. Randomly. Anonymously.

Here there was no one to screw. Except Tilly.

There was no escaping her presence either, and, man, did I want to fuck the living daylights out of her.

I lifted one knee and casually—oh so casually—crossed a forearm over it so my hand nearly dangled in my lap, obscuring my growing hard-on from view.

“You should stay in your quarters, Matilda.” My voice sounded like gravel, and I shifted again.

“Is that a direct order, sir?”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Rie Warren is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors, I LOVE this series! Walker, book one, was my favorite book of the year and I think Justice might be #2.

Justice Chase is an X-Op’s computer genius playboy. He’s just been assigned lead for the first time with his new team, their task is to rescue the ambassador and his daughter who are trapped in the American embassy, which is under siege. They’re able to infiltrate the bunker that the ambassador and his daughter are in, but once inside they’re trapped, and when Justice realizes that the ambassador’s little girl isn’t so little, the attraction is immediate. Matilda aka Tilly, is the ambassador’s daughter and also a photography art teacher at a University back in the states. The two know that the situation isn’t exactly the best for a relationship of any kind, but when being trapped in close confines becomes too much, the two can’t resist one another.

This is such a fast-paced read, you won’t be able to put it down once you begin reading. I love that we get a touch of the other men on the team as well as Justice’s story. This can be read as a stand-alone, but I definitely recommend you read Walker as well because it’s also incredible. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

Justice and his team are tasked with rescuing an ambassador and his daughter, who are holed up in the American Embassy in Yemen. Justice is surprised to find the daughter, Tilly, is not a teenager but a beautiful 20 something woman. One he is instantly attracted to.

Tilly wants Justice and she is a strong woman and isn't afraid to go after what she wants until she gets it. Justice wants Tilly, but acting on it while they are stuck in the embassy while people outside are trying to get in and kill them is not the place.

The action this story provides is heart pumping, on the edge of your seat stuff. I loved it, reading as quickly as I could to see what would happen next. Reading Justice is like watching your favourite action flick only with lots of hot sex and a dash of romance – a total thrill ride.

When the dust settles after the almost disaster that was the last mission, the guys are back together to regroup and move on to the next assignment. They find out they are going to Yemen, the American Embassy, to retrieve Ambassador Lawless and his daughter, Tilly, from the wreckage. Justice was to take the lead, his plan was an in and out attack, that was far from what happened. Somewhere in the tunnels of the Embassy, Justice fell for the one he was supposed to be protecting. The bad boy womanizer lost his focus.

I loved Justice. He was the typical bad boy. He wanted Tilly without excuse, but he knew he wasn't good for her. She pushed and pushed and he tried fighting her off. He tried to do the "right" thing by her, until he couldn't, and the chemistry between the two was explosive.

I am loving this world Ms. Warren created. I love the heart racing suspense and thrill of the missions the guys go on. I can't wait to see where Storm's book takes them.

I loved the first book in the series, and as I started reading this one, it all came back to me, so I was very happy to read on about this band of under the wire warriors. They live life at one heck of a pace, and we are along for the ride. The mission is front and centre of the story, and some of the dangers they face are very vividly described. Mindful of how Walker and Jade fell for each other in book 1, Justice is determined to remain single, but Ms. Warren had other plans, and as we watch them unfold, we can only watch and wait for the situation to be resolved. The heat between Justice and Tilly is undeniable; yet he is one stubborn, and to be honest, selfish man. When I thought about Walker and what he went through for the love of Jade, this is a very different story. I am curious to see how things will turn out for the next member of X-Ops to fall.
