Sentinels of Babylon, Book 1
Lucy Simmons comes from a rough family, but she’s a damn good public defender. Even though she hates to see criminals walk due to sloppy police work, the law’s there to make sure everyone gets a fair trial, and Lucy certainly doesn’t believe in the kind of justice meted out by the leather-clad ex-cop they call “Evil.” He’s stubborn, cynical, and out of control—but he plays her body like no man ever has. For once, both Lucy’s boss and her brother agree: The biker is trouble.
Evan Villiers took a sacred vow to let no killer, rapist, or pedophile go unpunished. When scumbags fall through the system, the Sentinels of Babylon clean up the garbage. Although the SOBs and their methods may not be to Lucy’s liking, the beautiful lawyer has become Evan’s light in the dark. But his next hit is Lucy’s own brother—a murderer who got off on a technicality. Now, with his loyalties split, Evan must turn his back on his sworn duties . . . or lose the woman who has claimed his reckless heart.
This may be my new favorite MC series! I have never read anything by this author and what an introduction to her work this was! I was blown away by her characters and the plot. It kept me truly guessing until near the very end. I hated having to put this book down for anything. The characters were highly dynamic and extremly magnetizing. Lucy has a great balance of being a strong female as well as knowing when she needs help and accepting it. Evan is the epitome of hard as nails bad boy biker. He has background, charisma, looks and so much more going for him. When he finally gives in and goes after what he wants, look out because it gets HOT!!
The suspense ratchets up and keeps the reader on edge. Keeps us guessing. This book has been phenomenal. I can not wait until the second book Sentinal's Kiss comes out! I highly recommend Necessary Evil.
