    My review can't do this book justice; I loved it.

    RJ Scott is trying to kill me – one book at a time – but I'm loving every minute of it. Deacon's Law is her newest release and I thought it was wonderful. I should know better than to start one of her books late at night; I found myself reading until 5 a.m. and only stopped then because I just couldn't keep my eyes open any more. Deacon's Law is the third book in the Heroes series and it's a heart-pounding, heart-breaking (at some points), suspenseful and thrilling story that I hated to see end. The story begins in 2013 and picks up again three years later. Deacon Shepherd is an undercover cop trying to gather enough information to bring down an evil family that deals drugs and is responsible for several deaths. Rafe Martinez' father and mother are dead. He is living with his Uncle Arlo's family; Arlo was his mother's brother. Before he died, Rafe's father told him of the evil things his uncle has done, including killing his own sister, Rafe's mother. Rafe hates living with his uncle and his sons but he's determined to gather evidence against the family so that they can be brought to justice for their crimes. Deacon has spent two years undercover, working his way up through the ranks in order to get close to Arlo. He doesn't think that Rafe is really part of the evil things his uncle does but he doesn't know for sure. He's in a quandary because he's attracted to Rafe but he can't let his attraction undermine his investigation; too many lives are at stake. RJ Scott gave her characters in this book such depth that I could "see" everything that was going on and feel everything that they felt. Deacon ends up feeling tortured by the things he was forced to do while undercover. When Rafe sees Deacon again after four years, he is stunned; he never again wanted to see the man who tried to kill him. When everything seems to be resolved at just over the half-way point in the book I knew that it couldn't be but I was still shocked at the devious plot that RJ Scott came up with and how the rest of the story played out. Rest assured that Deacon and Rafe get their HEA but not without some serious heart-pounding moments. The epilogue that RJ wrote for Deacon and Rafe was wonderful and a perfect way to end their story. You might want to keep some tissues on hand for this one – for the sad stuff and also for the happy things that happen; both brought on the tears for me. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

    Nail-biting and heartwarming story

    I don't know how RJ Scott does it all the time, but this was another wonderful book. The much-anticipated third book in the Heroes series tells the story of Deacon and Rafe. Right from the start, I was captivated by this story. I was sitting on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, heart beating at full speed. It is a story full of suspense and heart-stopping situations. It is a story full of love, friendship and heart-warming moments. I was pulled through the whole spectrum of emotions, from anger and fear right through to laughter and love. The heat level is low. There are more tender and gentle moments than super hot ones. The anxiety and tension are high. Written in a perfect combination. RJ Scott can create loveable characters like no other. Deacon is a hard man but with a heart as soft as butter. Especially when it comes to Rafe. He will defend and protect him no matter what. He stands for his principles and takes his work serious to the extreme. Rafe might be the younger man, but he has such a strong character. He has experienced so much emotional and physical pain it is hard to read. It takes times to forgive Deacon what he did but then it takes a strong man to be able to do that. It is always lovely to reconnect with the guys from earlier books, in this case, Mac and Sam. Even Kayden from the Sanctuary series makes an appearance. This is the third book in the series and can be read as a standalone. There are recurring characters so you might miss some references to their stories.

    Deacon's Law

    Deacon's Law is the third book in the Heroes series, and we get the story of someone who showed up in book two to help Mac out. Deacon was a quiet character in there, but someone who Mac trusted completely. In this book, we find out more about Deacon, and get an insight into the character he is. Rafe is the good guy, caught up in a mess that isn't of his making, but he is determined to see it through for reasons of his own. These two really go through the mill to begin with as Deacon is undercover. Once the story moves to present time, then things go more smoothly. As with all of R.J. Scotts' work, this is a smooth story, with one scene changing to the next very easily. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. Although Sam and Mac do make an appearance in here, there is nothing here that a new reader would find confusing. Although it could be read as a standalone, I would definitely recommend the series. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
