My Review

*****5 Unforgettable Family Justice Stars*****

When I sit down to read a book by Suzanne Halliday, there are many things I know that I am going to get within that book’s phenomenal pages. I know I will get a story that is well written, thoughtfully crafted, and that will sweep me up into its grasp from page one with Suzanne’s extraordinary writing magic. I know that I will get dynamic characters that are so wonderfully distinctive and easy to connect to. I also know that I won’t just be reading this story, I’ll be experiencing every word of it. I’ll feel everything these characters do, I will live through that book with them, and in the end I will close that book with the biggest smile on my face because of what I got to experience within its pages.

When I sat down to read Unchained, the fourth book in her Family Justice Saga, I knew that I would get all of that and more, and boy did this book blow me away with everything it had.

Unchained is a story full of family and friends, loyalty and connection, heat and passion, so many memorable moments that are so distinctive to these characters and their world, and more emotion and feels than you can shake a stick at. From the moment I started this book I could not put it down, and I could not stop experiencing every ounce of this book with these characters. Told through multiple points of view, Unchained gives you the fantastic opportunity to jump into the heads of everyone that makes up Family Justice, and I am telling you, you will not be disappointed one bit by what you get with all of them.

To say I have loved and enjoyed reading all of Suzanne Halliday’s books is putting it mildly. To say that I have loved the Justice Brothers is the understatement of the century because let me tell you, once those Justice Brothers, their fierce special lady friends, and their loyal and charming as all get out friends that make up the rest of the family get ahold of you, you will never want to say goodbye to them. Ever. Seriously, I don’t think I will ever get enough of them, their journeys together, and how special and memorable this family, these characters, and their respective intertwining stories are.

Over the course of this series I have gotten to meet and fall in love with each and every one of these characters and the people who fill in the Justice Family puzzle, and I have since become wholly invested in every way possible with all of them. I love these characters. I feel for them. I hope for them. I root for them with all I have. The more I get with them, the more I love them with every piece of my heart, and the more that I just bask in every second I get to spend with them.

Suzanne Halliday gives you the phenomenal opportunity to not only fall in love with these characters, she allows you to see them through so much. She allows you to see them at their highest and lowest. She lets you feel their struggles, and she lets you be there in their moments of glorious triumph. She puts you with them all, heart first, living and breathing and feeling it all, and that leads to an undeniable level of connection and investment to this world and its unforgettable characters.

I have to say that the level of investment I feel with these characters and this world is probably one of my favorite aspects of reading this series. It’s also what has made me love this series so immensely. From the start I have been with these characters through everything that came their way, and then as their stories continued in the Family Justice Series, I became even more whole heartedly invested in everything that they shared together. This series gives you the unique opportunity to not only fall in love with these characters and their respective stories, it also allows you to see how all of those extraordinary stories weave together to create a saga unlike any other.

I am telling you, you will love these characters, you will love how much fight and loyalty and love they have bursting from them, and you will love every single distinctive and unforgettable piece they add to the puzzle that is this story and this exceptional series.

The events of Unchained pick up a bit after we left the Justice Family gang in Sanctuary, and takes you from the desert to the city to everywhere in between with everyone in tow. In this book, everyone is back, and every couple in this series has some new things to face and figure out, along with some new characters and faces that you will love getting to know. Now I won’t tell you too much about this story because I wouldn’t want to ruin the true magic that it gives you with all of these characters, but what I will tell you is be prepared for some twists and turns, some seriously unforgettable moments, and tons more Justice Family wonderfulness that will have you wanting to live out in the desert with them all in no time flat.

This chapter in the Justice Family Saga brings about a lot of changes for almost every single character and person who makes up this fantastic family. You have new jobs, new places to live, new feelings, new relationships, and new questions all woven together seamlessly with the love stories between these characters that I have come to know and love. Suzanne Halliday does an exceptional job of balancing all of these storylines, bringing them together, and creating such a sense of family and connection and love through every page. And though it isn’t always easy for those in the Justice Family, and many of these characters face some trying times in this book and with each other and with their own journeys, it is all highly worth it to get everything you do with them in this book.

Unchained will allow you once again to jump right into the thick of it with Meghan and Alex, Cam and Lacey, Drae and Tori, Calder and Stephanie, Parker and Angelina, Brody and Heather, and will give you a wonderful dose of Finn and Remy too, and through it all you will feel like one of the gang.

I have to say that I loved getting to know those new faces, just as much as I loved being around the ones I’ve already come to know and love. Finn and Remy definitely have some fire to them, and there’s definitely something there between those two that bursts from the page every time they’re together. And while the two of them might not always get along, every moment with them is interesting, memorable, and full of that spark…and I honestly can’t wait to get more of them as their story continues.

Not to be outdone by the new kids on the block, all the rest of the gang of Family Justice will remind you over and over again why you love them all so much. You will fall back in love with their distinctive charm, how much they love and feel for one another, and just how far they are willing to go for those they love. Every moment you get with this family will pull at your heart in more ways than one, and I honestly can’t tell you enough how much I loved and felt this chapter of their story with all of them.

You will laugh and smile right along with these characters and the shenanigans that they get into. You will cry and have a heavy heart with them as they face what comes their way too. You will feel the absolute joy and love that they experience as new things come their way and as they continue to share moments full of love, laughter, and life with each other. You will jump for joy at times with them, and want to hug them harder at others, and through it all you will be with them as they show what family, love, and undying friendship are all about. (And just wait until you figure out how that cover connects into it all…cue heart melting.)

If you have loved this series and getting to know these characters, then I am telling you that you will love and enjoy every word of this book with them. Your love for these characters will deepen, your excitement for what’s to come will exponentially grow, and in the end you will realize how literally amazing this series, its characters, and their journeys within it, truly are.

Unchained was a phenomenal addition to the Family Justice Saga, and through it all I was reminded over and over again why I LOVE this series, its characters, and Suzanne Halliday’s writing so much. This series also continues to remind me again and again why I love series so much in the first place. The level of investment and connection you get with every single character in this series puts these books in a league of their own, and I truly can’t say enough how much I have loved reading every word of them. This book continued that love, and I have no doubt that any more books in this series will have that love growing even more.

If you love an extraordinary story full of love, family, and friendship, and the life changing, heart melting, and all-feeling things that can happen when you have all three, then you need this book and this series in your life. As I sit here writing this review, all I can think about is how much I love these characters with all that I have, and how much Suzanne Halliday has continued to give me unforgettable reading experiences with her amazing characters within this series, along with her other books. I can’t wait for where this series will take these characters, and I have no doubt that Suzanne Halliday will rock my world with whatever comes next for all of them!

Unchained is the whole package, and it is a book you will love. Trust me. There is no way you can read this book and experience what you do with these characters, and not love it, so get to reading it this very instant because the Justice Family is the best and they’re waiting for you.
