Title: Chasing Justice
Series: Piper Anderson, #1
Author: Danielle Stewart
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Piper Anderson has been given a fresh start in the picturesque town of Edenville, North Carolina. But her plans of settling into a normal life are derailed when she witnesses a prominent judge in her community committing a violent assault. Running from her own past and fueled by a passion to make the judge answer for his crimes, Piper is forced to decide if she’ll play by the rules or achieve justice in her own way.
Complicating things further, Piper finds herself fighting a powerful attraction to rookie cop, Bobby Wright. Although she’s increasingly enamored with Bobby, his staunch belief in the justice system is in stark contrast to her own. She may not share his opinions about the effectiveness of the law, but she certainly can’t deny how safe she feels when she’s in his arms or how every kiss leaves her desperate for more. 
For Piper, the idea of finally living an ordinary life with a man to love is tempting. However, fate keeps placing the judge, quite literally, in her path. Will she decide the only way to win is to be as wicked as the judge, but with righteous intentions? And more importantly, will Bobby choose to let her go, or follow her as she crosses the line and takes justice into her own hands?

Chasing Justice was a very fun read. I enjoyed it a lot, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series. 
It starts with Piper deciding she's going to take justice into her own hands, because she knows the law system fails people very easily. But she seems to have bitten off more than she can chew, so her comes Bobby to help her out with things, but Bobby isn't all cracked up about her idea of justice, since he's a law abiding COP. Things take a not so great turn in their relationship because of this until Piper learns so information that could possible hurt the people Bobby cares about the most. 

The book has romance, drama, and suspense which made it all the more enjoyable. Piper is an extremely damaged individual for good reason too, so she's not great when it comes to relationships of any kind because anything good that has ever happened to her has turned bad pretty quickly. And Bobby hasn't had a whole lot of bad things happen to him, but he knows he can help Piper, or well he wants to try to help Piper if she will let him. 

Now there are two main things I didn't like about the book. 

One, it seemed like Bobby and Piper kept putting off their relationship for everything else going on yet the other two people who were building a relationship didn't, so to me it didn't make a lot of sense that they couldn't be there for each other in that way as well during the hard times. 
Two, I didn't like how Piper was the one who got ALL of the information about the judge, and everything else. She set everything up, yet Bobby and Micheal were the ones acting like they did everything when they only did a little bit compared to what Piper did. It really got on my nerves! 
And overall I just felt something was missing in the book. I can't be sure what it was, but I just didn't feel a deep connection with it, and sometimes the dialogue got on my nerves because it seemed way to corny. But other wise I enjoyed the book, and I do recommend it!
