Seek the truth and you will find justice.
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.
Unlawful Justice by K.C. Lynn and K. Langston is one of those books that has a hold on you from the first page to the last. It’s been days since I finished the book and it’s still in the forefront of my mind as if I was reading it.
Going into it, I knew mostly what the subject matter was going to be about, just not the actual story. I have to admit that part of me wasn’t ready to read what I did. I was appalled at the behavior of many of the characters, but at the same time, I could see how hate and indoctrination could force a person into acting and thinking as some did. At the same time, it was so refreshing to see the other characters hold on to their idealism and hope without ever thinking of letting it go.
Who would prevail in this story? Hope or hate, happiness or anger. I kept thinking this is 2015, people don’t really feel this way anymore. But, then I thought back to some of the events over the past few years that had to do with color, hate, ignorance, etc and I realized that it is still prevalent in our society. Maybe I’ve been living in a bubble and not wanting to face the real world. But, reading Unlawful Justice will make you face those things that are scary and make you examine yourself for what your beliefs really are.
In my opinion, Unlawful Justice is a book everyone should read, no matter what race, religion, or nationality you are. You will come away a better person for doing so.
Now, as to the story, I loved their characters in it. Grayson and Olivia were perfectly matched and I could see the chemistry between them at the first meeting even though it was a tragic one. And I loved that they noticed each other in high school…it just wasn’t their time then, but fate made sure they found their way back to each other.
In addition, I loved Tania. She reminded me of a friend that I had throughout elementary school through high school. Because of UJ, we recently had an awesome reunion and though it has nothing to do with the review, I’m grateful. Also, who couldn’t help but love Terrell, Jay, Pap, etc. Poor Jay, Tania really put him through the ringer lol…I would love to read their story.
I have nothing but good to say about Unlawful Justice. If you are either a K.C. Lynn or K. Langston fan or both, then this story is definitely for you. Their character development and story line was amazing. And I didn’t stop from the first page to the last. I stayed up all night, even though I needed to sleep, because this book is just that good. No, actually, it’s great…good doesn’t even come close to describing it.
I give Unlawful Justice 5 very highly recommended stars. Trust me, this is a book that you want to one-click and it will also be one you keep on your kindle for rereading. Be prepared to ugly cry, but at the same time, be prepared to smile. There is so much hope, love, and forgiveness in this book. It’s a wonderful lesson to us all.
Congratulations K.C. Lynn and K. Langston…y’all are a fabulous team!

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.
