“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.

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?
