And sometimes Fate and Destiny combine to make an eternal LOVE
By: Suzanne Halliday
A Family Justice Novel
Parker Sullivan: Lawyer, Part-time rebel, musician, Alex’s oldest friend
Angelina Marquez: Event Planner for lack of a better description, Full-time piece of work, Alex’s little sister
Home in Arizona after an extended absence, Angie Marquez lands smack in the middle of Family Justice. Crossing continents to take on the planning for Meghan and Alex’s upcoming wedding, her happy return to the home of her youth also has a hidden reason…to either scratch an old itch or put it to rest once and for all.
And the name of that itch? Parker Sullivan.
What’s one more Alpha at this point?
Self-styled badass with a guitar and plenty of brawn artfully disguised as a successful lawyer, Parker Sullivan comes to Family Justice as Alex’s boyhood friend and the keeper of quite a few tall tales from their youth.
He’s also been secretly in love with Angelina Marquez since he could remember.
The problem? She refuses to speak to him…and for good reason.
Angie’s unexpected return to Sedona brings her and Parker face-to-face for the first time since their clandestine relationship crashed and burned years earlier.
Older, wiser and still deeply attracted to the powerful lawyer, she hoped that they could be friends again. But they had a lot to resolve, it wasn’t that easy and their messy relationship was affecting everyone.
****4.5 Absolutely Wonderful Stars****
Suzanne Halliday’s books are hands down some of my favorites. Every time a new book of hers comes out, I cannot wait to get my hands on it, and that is especially true with her Justice Brothers books. I seriously cannot get enough of this series, and I loved every word that I got to read in Desert Angel, the newest addition to her Family Justice Series that follows all the Justice Brothers after the events of their own books.
I love this author’s books to pieces, and I love me some Justice Brothers something fierce! I have loved these characters since I met them, and it was beyond fantastic to get to spend more time with each and every one of them. There is just such a feeling of family to these books, such a feeling of love and loyalty that just emanates from their outstanding pages. The feeling and emotions and just experiences that Suzanne Halliday creates and lets you experience so fully in Desert Angel, along with her other books, is nothing short of wonderful and it just reminds me over and over again why I absolutely love her books.
Desert Angel tells the story of what happens when Parker, one of Alex Marquez’s oldest friends, is reunited with Angie Marquez, Alex’s sister. These two definitely have one heck of past together that you begin to learn more about as their story unfolds. I loved getting to know both of them over the course of this book, and I especially loved how Suzanne Halliday revealed their past over the course of Desert Angel. She did it in such a way that allowed you to feel everything Parker and Angie were sharing in the present tense of the book, while also giving you the background to what got them to where they were together.
You got the past and present weaving together in such an extraordinary way, giving you all of their feelings and desires and connection, all of their worries and doubts, and all of their hopes and wants, as they tried to figure out where they would go from the events of this book.
My favorite part of this book was getting to know Parker and Angie. They had one intense connection, and you could just feel the depth and strength of the pull and connection those two shared. It was heated, it was passionate, and it was bursting with so much glorious feeling. Experiencing Parker and Angie’s connection and draw to one another in Desert Angel just made me truly believe in everything they shared, everything they were trying to figure out, and everything they were fighting for.
Parker is one hot as all get out lawyer that instantly won me over. He was intense and stubborn as all get out, and it was so fantastic to learn all that I did about his character. He totally stole my heart while I was reading this book, and I loved getting to experience everything that happened with him in this book, especially with Angie. One of my favorite things about his character was that he wasn’t afraid to own up to the mistakes he had made in the past. He was honest, with his past and with his desire for Angie, and that completely warmed my heart and made me root for him from the get go.
Angie was such a fantastic female character to read!! She was fiery and sassy and wasn’t afraid to say what was exactly on her mind. She had some serious spunk, and I definitely connected and respected that immensely in her character. I also just found her to be so easy to relate to when I was reading. I felt so connected to her character and all that she goes through and experiences in this story, and I really felt like I got to feel and understand everything she did because of how phenomenally this author wrote and developed her character. Angie just felt so extremely real to me as I read this book, and I thought she was just an overall strong, well developed, and very engaging female character who I just loved to pieces.
The push and pull between these characters is fantastic and it just brings their characters to life in such an amazing way. The more you read, the more you get to know about them both and what happened in the past. As you read this book you also feel their connection and chemistry building and building, and let me tell you that when it all explodes, it is nothing short of mesmerizing. There were definitely some moments in this book that had me blushing like crazy in the best way. What I loved about feeling and experiencing Parker and Angie’s relationship was that you got to see such evolution in it, that really highlighted the depth of their feelings.
That’s something that continues to blow me away whenever I read one of Suzanne Halliday’s books. She gives you two phenomenal, thoughtfully crafted and dynamic characters, and she lets you get their full story and evolution over the course of their story. You see how they are in the beginning and you become enraptured in their journey as a character, as well as their journey in the relationship they are embarking on. You get to know them, you get to understand them so truly, and you fall seriously in love with their characters and all that they go through. You also get every brilliant thought, emotion, and feeling that goes along with that.
One of my favorite aspects of this book was getting to spend time with all of my favorite characters from this series, while falling in love with Angie and Parker. I loved all of the interaction that these characters had together, and like I said before, Suzanne Halliday just creates those interactions and bonds and friendships in a way that just leaves you feeling whole. You truly get everything from this family of characters, and my heart was so full of all of them as I read and enjoyed this book. Those interactions had me smiling like crazy and blushing like a fool more times than I could count. They also had me laughing hysterically more times than I could count because of what came out of those characters mouths. It also just warmed my heart to see and experience them all together once again. I basked in everything I got with these wonderfully distinctive characters, and I cannot wait for more from this set of unforgettable characters.
I simply love this author’s writing style, and how it pulls me right into the stories with these characters. It’s so easy to feel and experience everything that they do, and to just connect fully to these characters because of how she writes her books. You feel and think and experience everything that these characters do because of how outstandingly she writes her books. I loved how immersed I felt in this book, and it just made this story so enrapturing because I was so fully connected into it in every way.
Desert Angel was just a fantastic addition to this series. I loved getting to know Parker and Angie’s characters, and getting to experience the two of them try to figure out what in the world they were sharing, and where they could go with the feelings they shared. Parker and Angie’s story definitely has some ups and downs and twists and turns, and it is busting with the perfect amount of feeling, desire, and fight for that magic and connection they share. I completely believed in what Parker and Angie were fighting for (and sometimes against, cough cough Angie) in Desert Angel, and I adored every moment I got with them in this book.
Desert Angel gave me more time with the characters that I love, gave me the chance to fall in love with two new characters who I instantly loved and rooted for, and it allowed me to experience so many wonderful things with all of these unforgettable and seriously charming characters. This book gives you all the heat, some definite laughs, and more love and desire than you can shake a stick at. It gives you everything, and I for one loved every bit.
I seriously cannot wait for more from this phenomenal author, and this fantastic series in the future as they have both definitely become some of my favorites!
