About: She had long given up the desire to be loved. Now she only needed to be heard.
Jaime Nichols went to law school to find the voice she never had as a child, and her determination to protect girls and women in the path of harm drives her in ways both spoken and unspoken. As Jaime, now a criminal defense attorney, prepares to press charges against someone who wronged her long ago, she must face not only her demons but also the unimaginable forces that protect the powerful man who tore her childhood apart.
Chandler Bolton, a retired veteran, is tasked with helping a young victim who must testify in court—and along with his therapy dog, Aslan, he’s up for the task. When he first meets Jaime, all brains, beauty, and brashness, he can’t help but be intrigued. As Chandler works to break through the wall Jaime has built around herself, the two of them discover that they may have more to offer one another than they ever could have guessed—and that together, they may be able to help this endangered child.
This thrilling installment of the Hidden Justice series explores the healing power of resolution and the weight of words given voice. And as Jaime pursues delayed justice of her own, she unearths eternal truths that will change the course of her life.
My Rating: 3 and 1/2 stars since I felt that the pacing was too fast when it wasn’t very suspenseful until the end.
My Recommendation: 17/18 up because of the subjects mentioned in this book though it may be better that you skip this one if you are bothered by mentions of rape and abuse… If I didn’t have to review the book I may have skipped this one.
My Favorite Character/s: Aslan! He’s just so sweet and adorable and helpful!
My Thoughts: Well, this is one harsh book! I was sickened art most off the things that happened but that’s to be expected with the book being about what it is about. The healing for the characters was perfect though the ending was too fast and sudden for my liking. And as always I enjoyed seeing the characters from former books.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it.
