A Fine Balance-Reviewed

A Fine Balance: A Deputy Sheriff in Pot by Susan Johnson 


Ex-LAPD undercover
Now Jack Morgan, Deputy Sheriff, is back on his home turf. Life in Northern California used to be laid back.
Susan Johnson’s new hot thriller explores the tension between a long standing community pot culture and the criminal gangs moving in to exploit the lucrative drug market, between gung-ho federal outsiders and local law enforcement, between overwhelming sexual passion and emotional vulnerability.

Susan Johnson aka CC Gibbs

A New York Times Bestselling Author from the Midwest, Susan has  recently returned to writing under her own name after a few years writing under the pen name CC Gibbs for her billionaire erotica series (featuring Dominic Knight and Rafe Contini). Johnson favors “larger than life” characters. Her heroes, the real focus of her stories, are invariably rich. The heroines put up a good fight and manage to cure the hero of a little of his arrogance by the story’s end.

Susan Johnson has published over 50 novels during her writing career. They are available worldwide in more than 9 languages. These erotic novels are not for the faint of heart! If you don’t enjoy explicit sex scenes in your love stories you might want to try somewhere else… ; )

REVIEW posted to Amazon & Goodreads:

Since I’m relatively new to this author, I haven’t read any of her historical romances or erotic novels penned under C.C. Gibbs. This keeps me at a neutral and fun place to start reading this author, and I wasn’t disappointed. The story is steamy and action packed.

It’s hard not to get pulled into this read. I mean you have a good looking Deputy Sheriff that walks a fine line between right and wrong, law wise. This story starts off a little slow as you are introduced to Jack Morgan’s world, but picks right up after the first few chapters. In the midst of taking down some bad men, it seems that romance has found Jack even though he wasn’t looking. Jack has heart, but will get his hands dirty for the right reason or the right woman. <Insert Jullian Penrose here>

Jullian has her hands full with her son and fighting the bank for her home, but when Jack shows up to serve her eviction papers she drops her defenses. She soon realizes it’s not just because Jack offers to help that she’s interested. Jack tries to keep his head on straight for the sake of the investigation, but staying away from Jullian proves to be much harder than he thought. Taking down the drug cartel was first priority, but now…

You’ll have to snag a copy to find out what happens! I mean come on, who doesn’t like a guy who loves kids and dogs? I’m sending a big thank you to the author for sharing her story with us at The Color of Ink. Also, please note, I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
