Justified (Loveless, Texas #1) by Jay Crownover


4 Stars

Aspen Keating Barlow is a woman on a mission to start fresh. From her impending divorce to opening her own law practice, everything is finally starting to fall into place in her new and improved life. Until someone vandalizes her office, and her fresh start suddenly starts to look like someone is out to get her…

Sheriff Case Lawton despises Aspen Barlow. After all, she is the lawyer who worked hard to ruin his life. But, when someone in the Loveless community needs his help, Case will do his best to provide it… no matter how much he may hate being around her.


Justified was a suspenseful, animosity filled treat of a read! There is no love lost in the relationship between Aspen and Case. With their past constantly getting in the way of their true feelings for each other, these two will only be able to keep their lust at bay for so long while they’re forced to share their closest proximity yet…

Aspen may be the outcast of Loveless, but underneath her tough lawyer façade lies a woman who works hard to help the people who need her law expertise the most. With her former crush on Case turning into a mutual disdain, she is hesitant to ask him for help… until he steps in and refuses to take no for an answer.

Case has hated Aspen since she represented his ex-wife in their divorce. But once he starts to remember the Aspen he knew in high school, all of Case’s reasons for disliking her start to seem like less of a deal breaker than they once were. His job pushes him to do the right thing to protect her when she needs it most, but his heart might be pushing for something a whole lot bigger…

This was a great read! With it’s suspenseful plot and fabulous characters, I fall more and more in love with everyone associated with the Lawton family. Aspen and Case’s relationship was complicated and filled with past hurts and secrets that resulted in a rocky path towards understanding each other, but when they finally give in to that age old attraction, prepare yourself for the fireworks!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
