Sheriff’s Deputy Hayden Yates has worked hard to gain the respect and admiration of her fellow law enforcement officers. She’s succeeded so well, in fact, that she’s become just one of the guys. As her friends slowly begin to meet their soul mates, Hayden longs to be seen as a desirable woman, and not the tomboy she’s always been.

No slouch when it comes to attracting the opposite sex, cowboy Boone Hatcher might want to give it a rest for a while, especially after his last girlfriend accuses him of domestic abuse. Deputy Yates sees right through his ex’s ruse—and Boone sees right through Deputy Yates. Hayden might seem all business, but her need for justice comes from a heart that beats with pure passion.

A few dates turn into something more, and as the couple’s relationship deepens, so do the threats from his ex. It’s up to Hayden to convince Boone the danger is real…before jealous antics escalate to deadly obsession.

** Justice for Boone is the 6th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

For those that know me Contemporary Romance is not my top pick in genres to read, but I do pick them up every now and then. I have to say this is my favorite from Ms. Stoker that I’ve read so far.

Hayden is a Deputy Sheriff. Tuff, strong, and an independent women who is more like one of the guys then a women, but she still is feminine.

Boone is a cowboy, takes great care of his ranch, those that work for him, and has a strong moral code of not hitting a women for any reason.

Hayden and Boone were an interesting couple to fall in love with. Hayden meets Boone when she’s called out to his place for domestic violence, but he’s the victim although it takes her showing up to show the others that that is the case. Yes, men can be abused too.

The domestic violence and a female police offer just added to the story. There was a balance; between their pasts, what they do now, and what is happening around them. Hayden showed her femininity and Boone his masculinity. Their roles didn’t define them anymore then their gender. I liked this. Liked the role-reversal. Liked the story. Liked how everything played together and made this couple one of my favorites to enjoy. It was sweet and adorable.

Note: Can be read as a stand alone. Books in this series do not have to be read in order.

Rated: 4 Stars
