Publisher's Summary

Hiding from her ex is exhausting enough, but for Hope Drayden, putting her seven-year-old son through a life on the run and living on the streets has been mentally torturous. When a kind diner owner offers her a job, Hope begins to claw her way toward a new beginning for herself and Billy, one tip at a time. But since her son’s recent abduction, and with threats from her ex still fresh in her mind, she’s constantly looking over her shoulder. Then a surprising, and lucky, tip from a diner regular puts yet another target on their backs. 

At the request of a friend, medical examiner Calder Stonewall has been looking for Hope and Billy for weeks. When they unexpectedly show up at the scene of a crime, his interest soon becomes personal. He’s amazed by the beautiful, brave woman and her resilient son. He’s also surprised by his growing need to take care of them both, although winning Hope’s trust won’t be easy. But when a tragedy thrusts the couple together, Calder quickly proves he’s a man Hope can rely on. 

Which is a good thing…because she’ll need all his support, and love, to get through a threat they never saw coming. 

*Justice for Hope is the 12th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

LOVED CALDER AND BILLY, HOPE WAS EXASPERATING

Loved the male lead, and the little boy, the heroine not so much. Yes, I know I should take into consideration the state of mind of the heroine being homeless, and her awful past. But there are times when stupidity is passed as *pride* and the heroine is hellbent in not accepting help that would benefiT not only to her, but her 7 year old child. She was extremely exasperating to me. I always enjoy Erin Mallon's narration.

Since being first introduced to Hope & her son in Melina's story I have looked forward to this. I am not disappointed. It was even better than I imagined it would be. I do recommend reading/hearing Melina & Blythe's stories. Erin Mallon did another fantastic job.

Sappy Dialogue, Whiny Hope, Controlling Calder

Oy. Who has a son kidnapped and focuses on "When this is all over, I'm going to marry you. blah, blah, blah."? The only awesome character was Billy, the little boy. Who writes this stuff? The dialogue was so juvenile, the writing immature. The book started out with a hook, but then went south...quickly.

OMG, Listening to the Narrator was excruciating.

The story line would probably have been good, but I could not continue to listen to the book. Listening to Erin Mallon narrate a story is like hearing Nails on a Chalkboard. WHY does she have to end every sentence with a long drawn out, over emphasized dramatic breath ending in an upward "Ahh" ?? She may be a nice person & I hate to criticize, but she either should change this defective style or give up Narrating all to gether. I have to apologize to the Author, Susan Stoker, for giving a negative review, but make better choices as to who Performs your stories. 😞 Tammy, IN.

Love the stories with Kiddos!!

This one and the one with TJ are my favorites so far!!! I love love loooooove, the stories where kids are involved. This one though, a little one coming out of their shell. Amazing!! So darn good. I love that these stories portray what real love is. A true, pure, genuine love. A man who loves his woman and anything that comes along with that, no matter the baggage. Thats good stuff!! Erin Mallon the narrator.. i love her already. I'm 100+ books in with her as a narrator. Usually i like to have a dude as a decond POV but Erin can bring it on all levels!! She is hotter dude voice than most dudes 👌

Bravo Susan and Erin !!!!!

Loved the series. Hated the "spoiler alert" kidnapping parts but loved the narration, romance and Billy. He was adorable. Also liked how characters form earlier books in the series were included. Loved the strong family and friends support too. Crush on Calder...sorry Hope...lol. was good stuff!!!!!

Stoker Does It Again

I have read or listened to all of Stoker's books. This is a different bend for Stoker and it is wonderful. Hope is brave and a strong independent woman, Calder allows Hope her time to truly trust him with her and her son. Romance, action and believable dialogue with real full fledged characters. Also you get to hear about your old favorites. You can not go wrong with this author.

another great romantic suspense in the series!

I am yet to read a book in this series that does not grab and hold my attention! This is Hope and Calder's story...whom we caught a glimpse of at the end of Blythe and Sawyer's story. Calder has spent months searching for Hope and her 7yo son, Billy, ever since Blythe shared that they were homeless, but without success. Imagine his surprise when he arrives at a crime scene and the witnesses are non other than Hope and Billy. It was cute and hilarious to see how the 40 yo ME became a blithering idiot around the beautiful single mom. Calder learns that Hope is a waitress at a diner and has been living in a seedy motel. Calder also becomes a regular at the diner and soon wins over Billy, who has been mute since he had been kidnapped (in another story). Over time, Hope becomes comfortable with Calder and lets him into her life. We know that Hope is on the run from an abusive ex, who happens to be a cop, so that took some doing. She and Billy have found an ally in the elderly, widowed owner of the diner, Joe. Her coworkers though...not so much. There is so much going on in this book but I don't want to give spoilers so I will just say that we have a patient, sexy dude, his awesome supportive friends, bad guys and a good balance of sweet romance and suspense. Another great HEA to wrap up the story. Now I need Quinn and Driftwood's story...*tapping foot impatiently*

Justice for Hope

I love listening to Erin Mallon, always makes the audible experience a joy. Once a gain a brilliant story. I think this one is my favorite of this series. This story is about Calder, who is a single,40 year old Medical examiner. Hope is struggling in her life, running from her abusive ex, and supporting her 7 year old son. A wonderful love story and the journey and the connection between these two main characters, is just wonderful.
