Justified Misfortune: Brotherhood Protectors World
Hudson Riggs has returned to his family’s ranch after years spent traveling the world. The former Navy SEAL accepted a position as a Personal Security Specialist, a job that didn’t leave much free time. He never expected his visit to his hometown to turn into another job. His former High School flame has been arrested for murder but Hudson’s gut instinct is she didn’t do it. All he has to do now is prove it.
For Sunny Travers, being back in Canyon Springs is bittersweet. She desperately misses her life in California but her grandmother needs her. Sunny’s world flips upside down when she’s arrested for killing the local hero. Now the citizens of Canyon Springs have turned against her and she’s forced to accept help from the man who broke her heart all those years ago.
Hudson knows Sunny hasn’t forgiven him. Hell, he hasn’t forgiven himself for how he left things but all his emotions take a back seat when someone tries to kill Sunny. Can Hudson protect Sunny long enough to apologize to her and right old wrongs or will the killer get to her first?

Now, I’m a sucker for a second chance, and the fact that this theme is at the heart of this book made me instantly warm to it. But add to that, the Brotherhood Protectors World and a tie-in to the author’s Callahan Security series, and there was no way I could resist. The chemistry between Sunny and Hudson is compelling to watch. I was so glad to see them air out their past grievances and hurts. This is a book that felt like it went by in the blink of an eye. It pulled me into the mystery, the story, and the whole thing went by in blur of action, suspense, and misdirection. At no point in the story was I able to outthink the plot. All the necessary clues were there, but I was successfully distracted by everything else that was going on and never managed to put them together before the book was over. Before I even started reading this, I was already a fan of the author’s work. Now I can’t wait to see what she gives us next.

I love Lori’s work and her Callahan Security world is one of my favourites series then throw in that this book is set in the Brotherhood Protectors world and it was a no brainer I had to read and I was so glad that I did This is a wonderful story of second chance love and how a town can turn against it’s own There is plenty of angst and drama and a whole lot of suspense to keep you turning the pages like all of Lori’s books

An amazing second chance romance with danger, suspense, mystery and amazing chemistry. I couldn’t stop reading and this is my first time reading this author. Sunny and Hudson had a lot of hurt to get through but being in danger helps them see that they can still trust each other. What a great story!
