The Blurb:

Dr. Melia Rose and ex-Marine Johnny Hunt had it all. Until one night in Atlantic City changed everything. She’s left shocked, confused, and alone, unable to come to terms with what happened.

Hell, she doesn’t even know what happened; she just knows her life has taken a one-eighty.

Now, Melia’s started over—again—in her secluded, boring life in the swamps of Florida. The people are great, she has a housekeeper who may or may not be Bette Davis reincarnated, and it’s quiet. But when her ex-husband shows up, dropping a bomb of epic proportions, her new life is a whole lot more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.

There’s nothing Johnny wants more than to undo the damage from the past. The secrets he’s been carrying have been eating away at him, but protecting Melia was more important than anything else. Even his own life. He managed to save her last time, but the danger is close—too close. In order to save her once more from his demons, Johnny will have to come clean…about everything.

My Review

3 It was okay Stars

Some Spoilers

Dark Justice was the first book By Jenna Ryan that I have read. It was an okay read. I will be honest the synopsis sounded so good and I was excited to get started. I am a sucker for second chance romances, but this book fell flat for me. When I first started reading I really got into it. I felt it had real potential. By the 3rd or 4th chapter in, it just flat lined and never really lived up to my expectations. The story never felt deep to me. I never felt like I really knew the main couple. Their relationship felt superficial as well. There was something else that didn't sit right with me either. I felt the hero and heroine both handled the whole "The bad guy is coming to kill me and has already tried many times" thing oddly. They both treated the threat like it was an pimple. Nothing to see here, just a small annoying bump, then they went about their normal life. Even while they were shot at and almost blown up a number of times. So I never felt the fear or drama. Overall the whole read kinda felt like a Harlequin romance, okay to read, but no real depth.
