*[Blog Tour Review & Tour Wide Giveaway] Justice (Galilee Falls Trilogy #1) by Jennifer Harlow

Justice (Book One of the Galilee Falls Trilogy)
It’s hard being a regular police officer in Galilee Falls, a city with the highest concentration of superheroes and villains in the country. It’s even harder watching your best friend, the man you’re secretly in love with your whole life, planning to marry another woman. Detective Joanna Fallon has to contend with both. When the vilest supervillain in the city’s history, Alkaline, the former crime boss who can shoot acid from his wrists, escapes from the maximum security prison, the whole city is gripped by panic. Leading the pursuit is Captain Harry O’Hara, Joanna’s boss and secret lover, and the city’s champion superhero Justice, who caught the villain last time, much to Joanna’s chagrin. Before her father was murdered in a mugging twenty years earlier, Joanna worshiped the hero, but when he disappeared and failed to save her father, that adoration turned to contempt for all supers. After Alkaline attacks too close to home and targets Joanna as his next victim, tough-as-nail Joanna has to contend with her increasing fear while struggling to choose between her life-long crush and her new-found love.

At turns vulnerable and fierce, equally mordant and winsome, Joanna is an earnest yet emotionally damaged heroine, who despite the tough breaks of her childhood sees the good in people and vow to protect her beloved city at all costs. An ass-kicking petite firecracker with no superpowers of her own, she charges after supervillains unflinchingly, never losing her wit even when facing her toughest fight. With a coy blend of whimsy and vivid imagination, she delivers both humor and thrills in an action-packed and edgy blend of comic book cool, fantasy-noir, and bitter-sweet romance.

Justice is the second book that I've had the pleasure of  reading by Jennifer Harlow and the first in her new Galilee Falls trilogy and what a way to debut a new series it was.
Jennifer Harlow has a very unique writing style and her own unique sense of humour really does shine through in her writing and I think that is one of the best parts of reading one of her books. I expect to laugh my pants off and I always seem to end one of her books with a huge grin on my face excited to see what awesome stuff she'll come out with in her next book which is why I had to sign up for this tour.
I loved our heroine Joanna in this story. She was really complex and I loved that while she was vulnerable she wore it like an armour to protect herself at the same time. She was hilarious for some points but still made a serious character who was more than capable of kicking ass and taking names. I loved her determination and spirit. I'm really loving how many authors are now writing books from a strong female character's point of view. It's such a nice change to have books like this where the characters despite magic or in this case being superheroes still are pretty realistic.  
The superheroes and supervillians were handled awesomely and I loved how the whole them really went together. I've never been a mega fan of the superhero genre but I really loved this one and though that the way that the whole world and the characters were written were very well done and showed off just how talented the author really is because of her ability to diversify and break into a genre that is traditionally written about by male authors.
With lots of action, humour balanced with the perfect amount of seriousness and fast paced, engrossing writing it's no surprised that I absolutely love Justice by Jennifer Harlow and can't wait for her to come out with the next book in the trilogy. Until then I do believe I will content myself with reading her other books.
I would highly recommend this novel to any one and everyone. It's one of those books that can be read by both ladies and gents and still offer each of them a lot. If you haven't tried Jennifer's books before Justice is the absolute perfect place to start.
