Dark Justice: Hunt
Dark Justice #2
By Jenna Ryan
Releasing March 26th, 2018
Entangled Publishing

Dr. Melia Rose and ex-Marine Johnny Hunt had it all. Until one night in Atlantic City changed everything. She’s left shocked, confused, and alone, unable to come to terms with what happened.

Hell, she doesn’t even know what happened; she just knows her life has taken a one-eighty.

Now, Melia’s started over—again—in her secluded, boring life in the swamps of Florida. The people are great, she has a housekeeper who may or may not be Bette Davis reincarnated, and it’s quiet. But when her ex-husband shows up, dropping a bomb of epic proportions, her new life is a whole lot more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.

There’s nothing Johnny wants more than to undo the damage from the past. The secrets he’s been carrying have been eating away at him, but protecting Melia was more important than anything else. Even his own life. He managed to save her last time, but the danger is close—too close. In order to save her once more from his demons, Johnny will have to come clean…about everything.

In Dark Justice: Hunt (Dark Justice #2) by Jenna Ryan, ex-Marine Johnny Hunt did what he thought best to keep his wife safe, but now it seems his past is coming back to haunt him, and again he has to do everything in his power to protect her. However, keeping his secret is no longer an option and when Melia learns the truth, will she ever be able to trust Johnny again or will their second chance at happy ever after never happen?

What an enthralling, fast-paced, wild ride Ms. Ryan takes readers on in this second book of her Dark Justice series where the storyline was filled with suspenseful moments and had me worried for Johnny and Melia; the main characters had me loving their past history and their growing relationship on their way to hopefully getting a second chance at forever; and the dialogue was compelling, as it wasn't only told from the hero and heroine's points-of-view, but also the bad guys. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time after things went awry between them in the past and I could understand Melia's reaction, especially once she discovers what Johnny did to keep her safe. Will Melia allow Johnny back into her life? 

Both the main characters are compelling and I loved their history and the fight Johnny has on his hands to keep Melia safe and win her back. Moreover, the heroine is resiient, courageous and I liked her friendship with her housekeeper, as the woman is protective of Melia and loves to tease. I also loved the challenge the heroine provided the hero because it's palpable she wants nothing to do with him, especially once she learns of what Johnny did in the past. And really, who could blame Melia if she ended up loathing the hero for what he did? Then again, she doesn't really have a choice but to have Johnny shadowing her every move. While the hero, he's confident in his skills to keep the heroine safe and I liked all the obstacles this pair had to overcome to be together including whether Melia can forgive Johnny and whether the hero can take down those responsible for coming after them. Will Johnny be able to eliminate the threats?

Overall, Ms. Ryan has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was strong, if not stronger than it was in the past; the romance was wonderful; and the ending had me on the edge-of-my-seat with worry for the main characters, but had me liking how everything worked out for the best for the pair. I would recommend Dark Justice: Hunt by Jenna Ryan, if you enjoy romantic suspense, the second chance romance trope, or books by authors Rya Stone, Claudia Shelton, Sheryl Nantus and Pamela Clare.
