Taking Out The Trash
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Length (Est.): 234 pages
In this steamy series opener from bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt—whose writing has been called “hot and sexy, with just the right amount of emotional punch,” by Lauren Layne—a vigilante biker takes the power of love into his own hands.
Lucy Simmons comes from a rough family, but she’s a damn good public defender. Even though she hates to see criminals walk due to sloppy police work, the law’s there to make sure everyone gets a fair trial, and Lucy certainly doesn’t believe in the kind of justice meted out by the leather-clad ex-cop they call “Evil.” He’s stubborn, cynical, and out of control—but he plays her body like no man ever has. For once, both Lucy’s boss and her brother agree: The biker is trouble.
Evan Villiers took a sacred vow to let no killer, rapist, or pedophile go unpunished. When scumbags fall through the system, the Sentinels of Babylon clean up the garbage. Although the SOBs and their methods may not be to Lucy’s liking, the beautiful lawyer has become Evan’s light in the dark. But his next hit is Lucy’s own brother—a murderer who got off on a technicality. Now, with his loyalties split, Evan must turn his back on his sworn duties . . . or lose the woman who has claimed his reckless heart.

Lucy Simmons is very good at her job being a public defender. She loves what she does even though sometimes she watches the bad guys walk away without any jail time. The cops in the area give her a hard time when she helps the bad guys walk.
Evan Villers is an ex police officer that retired so he could take an oath to let no killer, rapist or pedophile go unpunished. Being in the motorcycle club Sons of Babylon means cleaning up what justice left undone.
When Lucy and Evan are together they have a connection that is electric. When he starts to fall in love with her his loyalties are spit. The next mark that needs to be taken out is her brother.
This was a good read. Evan wants to keep the streets clean so no one else gets hurt but taking out his girlfriend’s brother just might blur the lines. When Lucy hears rumors about Evan she wants to find out the truth. But the truth could drive them apart.
