Trapped by Irene Hannon

 The second book in The Guardians of Justice series was AWESOME!! This book features Phoenix Inc. former ATF associate James "Dev" Devlin. Dev is the perfect hero for this story and I enjoyed every bit of his story. 


 Darcy and Laura have not gotten along since Darcy moved in with Laura after her father died. Laura's rules are too strict for 16 year old Darcy and she feels that they would both be better off if she leaves. Planning to start a new life away from Laura, Darcy leaves during the worst storm of the year. With all bus travel cancelled Darcy refuses to go home to Laura. Meeting up with another girl on the streets who helps her learn the ropes of the homeless shelters Darcy is just about ready to go home when they meet someone that offers them shelter in a better place. Believing that with the two of them sticking together they will be safe they take up the offer. Thus begins Darcy's nightmare.

When Laura Griffith hires the Phoenix Inc. group to find her missing run-away half-sister Darcy neither she nor Dev are looking for romance. All Laura can think about is what could have happened to Darcy. And Dev knows that dating the client is against company policy. There is something about Laura though that causes Dev to trust her, even with his most intimate secret. For Laura, Dev quickly becomes a man she can trust.


The first book in the series VANISHED kept me turning pages and wanting more of this group of detectives. TRAPPED did not disappoint.  From the very beginning TRAPPED had me hooked. The suspense was intense and the romance was sweet. Now that I have read Cal and Dev's story I am looking forward to seeing what the author has in store for Connor the last partner in Phoenix Inc. There is a teaser chapter at the end of TRAPPED for DECEIVED coming out in 2014. I enjoyed the teasing that the group of friends have with each other along with Nikki their office manager. They were pretty relentless in teasing Dev about their new client Laura so I can  only imagine what is going to happen when Connor has his turn. If you read VANISHED I don't think you will be disappointed in TRAPPED...I wasn't!

I received my copy from NetGalley. This is my honest review. TRAPPED will be available for purchase September 1, 2013.
