The peaceful town of Harmony Falls, Texas, has been rocked to its core by an unspeakable crime.
One that harbors revenge and injustice.
Schoolteacher Olivia Bradshaw can’t remember what happened that horrific night, but it’s easy to see the effect it’s had on those around her. All she wants is for peace to be restored to her beloved hometown, but Deputy Grayson Taylor is on a different mission. He seeks truth and justice, and he’ll do whatever it takes to find both for Olivia.
Lines will be crossed.
Can justice prevail, or will the citizens of Harmony Falls succumb to the corruption and hate that continues to plague their small town?
K.C. Lynn and K. Langston have teamed up to bring you a story about hate, race, corruption, injustice, and above all, love. A story that may change the way you view the world.
This is another one of those “Why haven’t I read these authors before?” types of books. It is a sad day when a book whore like me is just now discovering these two authors. Now I know they normally write separately but I must read both of their books as soon as possible. Until I do that I will be hanging my head in shame for slacking on my book whoring.
Unlawful Justice was moving, emotional and eye opening. Now I am a white girl who has friends of every race, color, religion and sexuality. I live just outside of Detroit but when I think about Detroit I don’t see black or white, what I see is a city that has suffered and is slowly healing and coming back to life. I know you are wondering why I would even put that in a review but just bare with me for a few more sentences. I don’t see color when I look at people, I see people. Unfortunately though not everyone in this world sees this this way. I have family that sees that sees a person’s color as who they are and I don’t agree with them but some people can’t see past what others do. We all bleed red. We all need air to breathe. We all deserve respect and understanding. Unlawful Justice sadly opens our eyes that not everyone believes the way I do and it made this even more of an emotional and powerful read for me.
I am sorry about that little tangent but this book moved me in ways I didn’t think it would. These authors used a topic that is just as prevalent today as it was twenty years ago, thirty years ago hell a hundred years ago. They took a chance and it worked for them. This is one of the most eye opening, moving, life impacting books I have ever read. It will stay with you even after you finish it. If you take anything away from this book, I hope that it is that a person’s color doesn’t define them, that they are a person who deserves to have happiness in a world filled with so much hate, that love doesn’t see race, and that there is no place for hate in our lives.

His gaze softens as he cups the side of my neck. “Jesus, you should never feel insecure. You’re fucking beautiful, Liv, bruises or not. Nothing in the world could ever change that.”
I watch him carefully, his sincerity tearing through my defenses. “You really mean that, don’t you?”
He rears back, the skin between his brows bunching together in deep valleys of confusion. “Of course I do. How could you not know that?”
I shrug. “I don’t know. I guess it’s…” I pause for a moment before deciding to bare it all. “It’s hard for me to believe you still think I’m beautiful despite finding me the way you did.”
Understanding dawns and he quickly shakes his head. “No, not ever. That didn’t change the way I look at you. Yes, it fucking gutted me to see you that way, but not once did I think any less of you.” He pulls me closer while his determined gaze bores into mine. His jaw flexes, the rhythm of his chest growing heavier. “It should have never happened. Nothing so hateful should have ever touched something so beautiful. But make no mistake, Liv, when I look at you, I don’t see the girl I found that day, I see the girl who survived it all. You’re fucking beautiful, inside and out, nothing or no one will ever change that.”
My breath hitches as tears blur my eyes, his words healing my wounded soul. “You make me feel beautiful,” I choke out softly.
“Good, baby, because you are, every inch of you, and don’t ever fucking forget it.” He closes the small space between our mouths, his lips claiming mine in a heated caress as his tongue sweeps in.
