The Last Execution, By Jerrie Alexander 1


To survive, she must put the past behind her. To love, she must learn to trust.
Homicide detective Leigh McBride’s first assignment with the FBI brings her face-to-face with a past she’s tried hard  to forget. And when her temporary partner, a cynical ex-marine, lights a fire in her she thought long-extinguished, her darkest secret is threatened.
Scarred both physically and emotionally, Special Agent J. T. Noble is a man of few words. He prefers to keep people at a distance—until he meets Leigh. He’s attracted to her strength and drawn in by her secrecy. But in their line of work, secrets can be deadly.
When the killer they are hunting aims his vigilante justice at Leigh’s past assailant, the fine line between right and wrong blurs. To heal the past—and find their future together—Leigh and J. T. must learn that only through trust and forgiveness can love grow.

My Review:

                Who doesn’t love the vigilante who does justice when the police can’t do anything?  Well I for one do, so I was really excited when I started reading this book. The blurb drew me in and I couldn’t wait to start reading it.
                Overall, the characters were extremely well written.  You could tell who was who just by the way they were talking.  Being able to write an innocent woman and then switch to a sociopath is an amazing skill.  One that Jerrie was able to complete without any issues.
                My only complaint about this book was the switching of characters.  There were 4 main speaking characters  of this book, and there was constant switching between the 4 of them.  Although it was interesting to a degree, it was also kind of annoying as well.
                The story line though, I couldn’t put it down once I started it.  It was almost as if I HAD to keep reading in
order to find out what was going to happen next.  Watching the agents trying to figure out what was going on, and trying to catch the bad man, it was amazing.  Then being able to watch as Leigh was able to find her inner strength and move past what had happened to her.  Seeing both Leigh and J.T. learning to open their hearts, it was great.
                There were parts of this book were I couldn’t figure out what was going to happen next, and some parts were it made complete sense what was going on.
                I would recommend this to many of my friends.

An excerpt:
The six-year-old missile launched himself into the air, giving J.T. two
choices. Catch the kid, or let him fall to the ground like a deflated football.
J.T. grabbed him and held Ethan out in front, as he would a wet, smelly dog.
Leigh jogged down the sidewalk, sparks flashing from her eyes. She
pulled her son out of J.T.’s grasp and plopped the kid down at her feet. She
knelt and got right in his face. J.T. made a mental note to not piss her off.
“What have I told you about running out the door?”
Ethan’s head bowed. “Don’t even think about it.” He stared at the tops
of his bare feet.
“Obviously, you didn’t listen.” She tugged the knot at the back of her
head tighter before she looked up. “Sorry about the attack.”
“Kid’s a natural born high jumper.” J.T. stuffed his hands in his
pockets. She’d wadded her hair in the old-lady-school-teacher-bun-thing she
wore at work. Probably just as well. If she’d left all that blond silk loose
and sexy, he might’ve thought this was a date or something, which it wasn’t.
Him being here was entirely the fault of his own big mouth.
“Please.” She waved a hand toward the wide-open front door. “We were
about to come and get you.”
“You knew I was here?”
“A black Corvette rumbling around in our neighborhood doesn’t go
unnoticed.”
Dressed in blue jean shorts and a thin-strapped top exactly the same
blue as her eyes, Leigh looked more like a model than a mom. J.T. was glad he’d
worn a T-shirt and Wranglers.
His chest double-clutched and pulled a weird stutter step when a small
hand gripped two of his fingers and two small feet shuffled hurriedly to keep
up with him. Tonight was a mistake.

 

 

Let’s Meet The Author!!!

 

A student of creative writing in her youth,
Jerrie set aside her passion when life presented her with a John Wayne husband,
and two wonderful children. A career in logistics offered her the opportunity
to travel to many beautiful locations in America, and she revisits them in her
romantic suspense novels.

 

 

 

 

But the characters went with her, talked to her,
and insisted she share their dark, sexy stories with others. She writes alpha
males and kick-ass women who weave their way through death and fear to emerge
stronger because of, and on occasion in spite of, their love for each other.
She likes to torture people, make them suffer, and if they’re strong enough,
they live happily ever after.

 

 

 

 

The author of THE GREEN-EYED DOLL, THE LAST
