    This is everything you expect from a Radclyffe book. Great chemistry between the main characters. I particularly enjoyed the Jason/Jasmine character. I haven't read her Trust or Justice series, now I can't wait. This is everything you expect from a Radclyffe book. Great chemistry between the main characters.

    Beautiful. BEAUTIFUL!! Radclyffe just knows how to write a marvelous book. All the romances in all the books are simply breathtaking and deep and so enticing. It’s just a mix that makes it all perfect. I’m in awe of all the stories and I just know imma LOVE this whole series just like I love the Honor series. 100% recommend.

I felt that the conflict was resolved too quickly and that perhaps it would've been more exciting if we got to see the process of how Sloan discovered who was behind everything.

    This book left me disappointed and sad...first thing since its from Justice series I thought it will have lot of action, suspense with a touch of romance. However, it turned into primarily a romance novel. When it comes to romance element, this book in my view failed to develop emotions between main characters, mostly filled with pity and lust there are couple of caring scenes but they weren't enough to touch my sole.

However, it turned into primarily a romance novel. When it comes to romance element, this book in my view failed to develop emotions between main characters, mostly filled with pity and lust there are couple of caring scenes but they weren't enough to touch my sole. Sloan and Michael meant to be madly in love with each other but I don't see enough development between them which lead how they connected and fell in love. Also, instead of showing strong friendship between Sloan and Jasmine author chose to show the chemistry between them that too in front of her date and a person she is already falling for... Sloan arouses by Jasmine's touch! how can it be possible ? Does it shows that Sloan is in love/falling hard for Michael? How can any person who is supposedly in love or deeply attracted to one person and can get aroused by another person's touch ? I get it the author wants to show Sloan accepting Jason for who he is but she could have been shown it through friendship and care! Their past history is enough why to repeat that that again in front of their dates? It sounded like Sloan loves Jasmine and can't resist her at all but due to the constraints she can't overcome she is looking for someone else and the replacement is Michael! Also, I don't know why Sarah is so much around ? doesn't she have her own life/work at all? I get it they are friends but still.... The relationship development between Jason, Jasmine and Sarah was good. All about tolerance, acceptance and love was portrayed well enough but I have no idea how far its true in real life. This book is definitely doesn't suit my taste.. I may sound naive but I like to see two persons who suppose to fall for each other should never get attracted to other person even for a split second. These are purely my feelings!

I love the tight friendship that developed between them and I enjoy the acceptance and loyalty Sloan gives to Jasmine. The relationship between Sarah, Jason, and Jasmine is sweet to watch. I loved the discovery of Sarah’s desire not only for Jason but for Jasmine as well and the dropping of Jason’s walls to let Sarah in to love him and Jasmine. I absolutely love Michael. She is such an innocent in many ways. It’s beautiful to watch her fall for Sloan, to discover the feelings and emotions she’s not felt before. I hate her husband, who betrayed not only their marriage, but also tried to take the company away from Michael. Michael is just the woman needed to hold Sloan’s fragile heart and Sloan is just the woman to cherish Michael. Their love is beautiful.

    I am three books into the Justice series, so I thought I would go back and read how Michael and JT became a couple as well as Sarah and Jason. I thought the read was enjoyable with little angst and fine character development. Definitely provides insight as I continue to read the series.

    3.5 Stars When you're looking for well-written lesfic romantic fluff then Radclyffe is where you go. And she didn't disappoint! I've had some free time post Christmas and so, of course, I turned to something that had the predictable formula of a fluffy romance (meet, angst, something coming between them, resolution, happily ever after). Is the writing good? This book is smart (as in well researched and you learn a thing or two), sensitive (as in broken people believably written), and sweet (as 3.5 Stars When you're looking for well-written lesfic romantic fluff then Radclyffe is where you go.

Is the writing good? This book is smart (as in well researched and you learn a thing or two), sensitive (as in broken people believably written), and sweet (as in two people who deserve love finding each other in a satisfyingly cute story). My only thing is that sometimes I found things got a little bit too flowery and "beautifully prose like". I appreciate beautiful words and sentences (and am guilty of the very same thing in my own writing), but sometimes they don't belong. Were there grammar issues? A few, nothing too awful.   Are the lead characters likeable? I loved them both. JT is just this side of butch, and I sure do love me a beautiful butch lady. She's sensitive and caring and all the drool-worthy things. And Michael is... the perfect foil I suppose is the way I'd describe her. She's beautiful, incredibly smart, tough in her own way and in need of saving. The perfect damsel in other words. However I really really want to know the story behind her choice of name. Because I found my wondering about it distracting me often!! Is the supporting cast good? I want to know more about Jason and Jasmin because they intrigue me on every level, and I'm halfway in love with Sarah. That should answer your question. Is there a suitably nasty villain? There's a villain, and he is nasty but he isn't truly important except as being the reason Michael comes to JT in the first place. Is this story believable? It is....mostly. Is there anything I would change? A little less uhhh... words that are meant to move with their sweeping poeticness. Not that I didn't enjoy them, but they felt a little too much in some places.

    I loved this book. When I read the Justice Series, two of my favorite characters were Sloan and Michael. With this book, so much that remained unexplained has been revealed. There had been hints of their past throughout the series, but it was never fully told. It was also wonderful to explore Jasmine (Jason) and Sarah’s beginnings. Now I almost feel obligated to revisit the Justice Series, and I just may, but not right away. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Radclyffe’s wri I loved this book.

    This was probably the second book I read by Radclyffe and it left such an impression on me. Sloan is probably one of the more unique characters by Rad. She's not like any of the other characters Rad has brought to life, even now. From her background and personality to her career. I still can't figure out if Rad has experience with cyber security or just did a lot of awesome research but everything about Sloan's abilities felt so authentic to me.

    Good, not great. Read it in less than a day. Haven't read any of the other Justice novels - tend to read Rad's medical dramas instead of the cop ones. But this made me interested in checking out the Justice series more. Good, not great. Read it in less than a day.

    Simple and digestible afternoon read. I love the vanilla-ness of this novel. I however wish that more tension can be present. I.e the conflict between Jeremy, Michael and Sloane. I expected more of a stand off and a sweeping declaration by Sloane . It was just way too easy .

    Good story. Keeps you guessing. Spends a lot of time on the strangeness of some LGBTQ lifestyles, but it helps makes the story interesting. Some might find that part a bit confusing.

    Ok I kinda read this book back to front. What I mean is, is that this is the prequel to the Justice Series which I read and enjoyed immensely. However, saying that, you don't have to read this first. It's a book which can be read as an individual story but it does explain some questions you may have had without reading this first. I hope I'm making sense. Anyway it's just another example of the wonderful talent that is Radclyffe. Excellent book, excellent story and characters.

But I thought the emotional process wasn't explored enough. There really wasn't any detail in how being with a woman for the first time made Michael feel about herself. Or what it all means. None of that internal struggle. For Sloan, a bit more was explored with her emotional process but wanted more. I do like the Justice Series in general and will continue reading.

    DNF at 75% I'll just give up on the Radclyffe books I guess. My gripe with this one was the same as with the others: Too much narration/description. I would just skim over the narration and read the dialogues. The attraction is not relatable. I don't understand it. The sex scenes are akwardly written. The women (many of them) have males names. If I wanted to read a story about dudes called Michael and Sloan, I'd pick an m/m romance. DNF at 75% I'll just give up on the Radclyffe books I guess.

    This is the prequel to Radclyffe's Justice series and the first book I've read by her. It's a lesbian romance tale and I enjoyed reading it. It had a decent plot and character development, albeit the characters seem to be perfect people. But that's why we read romance. These are quick reads and would make good beach/vacation reading.

    What can I say.... I am a sucker for a 'happy ending' love story. Its my secret vice. Radclyffe does have another story running through the love story. So it's not all entirely chick lit. I like the Justice series from Radclyffe.. Short, easy to read without the need to think much and nicely written. What can I say.... I am a sucker for a 'happy ending' love story. Its my secret vice.

    The two woman in this story are very well developed. I love the characters. The story is exciting. The way the two woman has to go, till they trust the love they feel for each other is a beautful story in itself.
