Blog Tour: I Am Justice by Diana Munoz Stewart

Author: Diana Munoz Stewart
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Date of publication: May 2018

She’s ready to start a war
Justice Parish takes down bad guys. Rescued from the streets by the world renowned Parish family, she joined their covert sisterhood of vigilante assassins. Her next target: a sex-trafficking ring in the war-torn Middle East. She just needs to get close enough to take them down…

He just wants peace
Sandesh Ross left Special Forces to found a humanitarian group to aid war-torn countries. But saving the world isn’t cheap. Enter Parish Industriesand limitless funding, with one catch–their hot, prickly ‘PR specialist’, Justice Parish.

Their chemistry is instant and off-the-charts. But when Justice is injured and her cover blown, Sandesh has to figure out if he can reconcile their missions. With danger dogging their every move, their white-hot passion can change the world–if it doesn’t destroy them first.

I Am Justice is the first book in the Band of Sisters series.  It is also the debut book for this author.  The series involves a secret society of assassins who seek justice for young girls who are targets by drug and sex traffickers.  They are all adopted into the wealthy Parish family and teach and train in a school for girls.  This book focuses on Justice's story.  She is seeking revenge and redemption for the death of her sister Hope.  She is sent to Jordan (the country) undercover as a PR specialist for Sandesh's humanitarian group.  There she hopes to take out the men who killed her sister.

I was hoping for a good romantic suspense.  While there was a lot of action and some twists, the book fell a bit short for me. I liked it , I just didn't love it.  I felt like the pacing was off. The book would drag then speed up and then slow way down. There were probably parts that could have been taken out, such as the three sex scenes (one after another) in the hotel in Israel.  One would have been sufficient to get the attraction point across. While I liked Justice and Sandesh, I'm not sure I totally bought them together.  I was kind of hoping for a slow burn, but their relationship went way too fast for me.  

The story is told through the point of view of Justice and Sandesh as well as one of the bad guys.  I actually liked that last perspective as it added depth to the story.  The reality of what was happening to the girls gave the book a very dark feel.  I Am Justice isn't a bad start to the series.  I am curious to read the next book, I Am Grace.  I want to know more about the Band of Sisters.
