“I was too exasperated with it to continue.”
~ Under the Covers

I was excited about starting this book, when I read the blurb I thought it was a new urban fantasy series that I was delving into. But, as I started to read, I realised it was actually romantic suspense. Which was fine, I don’t read much romantic suspense so I was pleased that a book in that genre intrigued me.

It quickly became apparent that the promise in the blurb of I Am Justice wasn’t fulfilled in the book. Which, was why I DNFed it. I’ll keep this fairly short as I didn’t get that far through it before I was too exasperated with it to continue.

The main issue I had with this was the writing. It was clumsy and distracting. For example, Justice refers to people as humans, in such a way that it seemed to imply that she is not human. I spent most my time reading fully expecting a paranormal element to be revealed to explain this extremely weird phrasing. Although, perhaps I am judging too early and beyond the point that I stopped reading something is revealed. But I doubt it.

Another point, is that the whole thing was so very cliché and cheesy. I felt like just from reading the first few chapters I could map out the entire story. Admittedly you could say that about virtually any romance book, however, there was nothing within I Am Justice that made me want to continue on anyway and enjoy the ride through well-travelled territory.

Despite having an interesting premise behind the book and I assume the series, unfortunately it wasn’t executed in such a way that I could complete the book.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

That stinks as this did sound promising.

No, you’re right. The ‘human’ thing was an affectation. I struggled with this one, too, and I got to the end. My big gripe was that the book told me Justice was this super skilled black ops like operator and yet half the time she was going off half-cocked and making poor decisions that someone trained like that would never do. And… instalove.
So, it had some neat parts, but you didn’t miss much.
