Oh my, this book... it's amazing. I know when I read a Susan Stoker book, I'm going to fall in love but with Justice for Erin, I fell in hero worship!
Erin is a successful professor and part-time bartender who has her life together, on the outside. To look at her, you'd never know that inside she's haunted by a demon that more than 75% of Americans struggle with. She's smart, beautiful, outgoing, funny, etc and all the patrons at her bar like her immensely, oblivious to her insecurities. Completely blind to men hitting on her and people offering friendship, she's lives a rather solitary existence. Her father disappearing from her life at a young age, being stuck with a dreadful mother, and without many friends due to intense bullying, she's used to it. Erin is now independent, resourceful and outdoorsy, preferring to spend her time in nature than with many people.
Conor Paxton, a gorgeous game warden with a bevy of friends, has had a thing for Erin for ages. She's got a rocking body, a smart ass mouth and an innate sweetness about her that's intoxicating. She's also completely naive to the fact that he flirts with her every chance he can get. There's something that holds her back from completely embracing life and Conor longs to break down that door and show her the world. When she offers him a seat on a weekend camping trip with she and some of her students, he jumps at the chance to get close to her. Growing closer to her reveals what's eating away at her happiness and Conor sets his mind, and heart, on helping her slay her dragon.
I always know when I read a Stoker book, I'm going to see her champion a cause and I ❤ her for it!! In JFE, Susan Stoker tackles a subject that has been largely taboo for years and does so fearlessly! Reading this book was a bit of an emotional journey for me as I immediately connected and understood Erin and her struggles, as many women around the world will. The hope for us all is that one day we'll find our Conor, the almost too-good-to-be-true hero that sees past the standards of the world to the beauty we possess! Don't despair girls, I've seen it happen outside of romance novels!
Thank you Mrs. Stoker for sharing this book and your dream for a better, kinder, more accepting world with us!!
