In this steamy series opener from bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt—whose writing has been called “hot and sexy, with just the right amount of emotional punch,” by Lauren Layne—a vigilante biker takes the power of love into his own hands.
Lucy Simmons comes from a rough family, but she’s a damn good public defender. Even though she hates to see criminals walk due to sloppy police work, the law’s there to make sure everyone gets a fair trial, and Lucy certainly doesn’t believe in the kind of justice meted out by the leather-clad ex-cop they call “Evil.” He’s stubborn, cynical, and out of control—but he plays her body like no man ever has. For once, both Lucy’s boss and her brother agree: The biker is trouble.
Evan Villiers took a sacred vow to let no killer, rapist, or pedophile go unpunished. When scumbags fall through the system, the Sentinels of Babylon clean up the garbage. Although the SOBs and their methods may not be to Lucy’s liking, the beautiful lawyer has become Evan’s light in the dark. But his next hit is Lucy’s own brother—a murderer who got off on a technicality. Now, with his loyalties split, Evan must turn his back on his sworn duties . . . or lose the woman who has claimed his reckless heart.
“Justice is blind, but it can see in the dark.” Who here ever watched the television show Dark Justice. I know I did and I loved that show, I was unhappy to see it cancelled. Well this book reminded me of that show.
Necessary Evil finds Lucy Simmons a tough as nail public defender, help those that can’t help themselves even though some of these criminals deserved death. And that is where Evan Villiers an ex-cop turned vigilante. He is all for justice, those people that pray on the weak and defenseless deserved the justice handed out by Evan and his crew.
But when Evan starts to fall in love with Lucy his loyalty is split. Will she understand will she approve or will she decided to end their relationship.
Like I said at the start of this review, I loved this book. It had all the elements of Dark Justice just with a different spin. It was nice to reminisce while enjoying a fantastic book.
Necessary Evil had a great plot and well develop set of characters. Can’t wait to see who is next to receive “Dark Justice.”
