Review: Justice Prevails (Sin City Uniforms #3) by Morticia Knight

Never judge a sexy man by his cover.

Detective Beau Williams is hardworking, dedicated and professional. He enjoys the finer things in life, but with his heavy caseload that includes what Beau suspects is a new serial killer, he has no time to enjoy much of anything. What the tall redhead needs is someone to shake him up a little.

Investigative Technician Austin Kent never met a snarky joke he didn’t like—or a set of stairs that couldn’t trip him up. One night after a devastating episode at work, Austin sees something else he likes—the handsome detective he’s seen around the station whom he’s always wondered about. But after he makes a drunken fool of himself in front of Detective Williams, he’s sure there’s no hope.

Beau and Austin’s worlds collide when Austin is sent to pick up some evidence at the station. Amidst a myriad of twists and turns in the troubling serial killer-style murders of Vegas conventioneers, Austin and Beau discover that there’s more to the other than they’d originally thought. There might even be more they’d like to give—unless the killer has the final say.

Sexy ginger with a beard? IN!

Beau wants someone in his life. He's looking for a mature and refined boyfriend (<- totally can't relate to this), but the more he hangs out with Austin, the more he thinks the snarky klutz is right for him.

So, I really wanted to really like both these guys. And I did, mostly. 

Beau. I don't understand why he's only looking for someone more refined. I get having a 'type', but waiting for exactly that type of guy to come along doesn't make sense to me. Expand your horizons, dude! Especially when there's Austin right in front of you. It was a little snobbish to me. Luckily, it didn't take him too long to wisen up. He did end up winning me over, though. Austin was pretty insecure and I liked how Beau handled this. He wouldn't stand for Austin to put himself down and tried to put some confidence in the guy. Also... Ginger's gotta diiiirrrrrrrrrty mouth on him. There's this shower scene and, yeah... he likes to tell his dirty boy to do some stuff. Some stuff that I like to read about.

Austin was super cute. I loved his snarky sense of humor and, even though he was insecure, he was fun to read about. Austin is obviously going through some tough heartache, but it was kind of thrown out there and then not really mentioned again. I wish there was more to this part of the story, I think it would have added more depth to Austin's character.

In this book the mystery/serial killer was more of a sub-plot. No matter how ridiculous it was, this was fine with me. It added a bit of suspense, but the case didn't overtake the romance, which is what I prefer.

I didn't like this one as much as the last two in the series, but it's still got me curious to know whose story is next!

  1. Still got "All Fired up" waiting to be read on my kindle, bit disappointed with seeing only 3* for this book, but as you said that you preferred the first two books, I'm still hopeful.
