When someone asks what I do for a living, I answer it plain and simple . . . I’m a hunter. I hunt the dregs of society and I’m very damn good at it.
I’m Ian Chandler, FBI agent and a member of the Circle of Justice, an organization of justice seeking vigilantes. My mission is to solve a string of ‘accidental’ hiking deaths occurring around my Wyoming town. When Grace Myers –a woman who’s been missing for days –shows up on my land, it turns out she’s the key to it all. Someone is hunting her, and I make it my duty to keep her safe.
However, the deeper I get into the case, the more dangerous it becomes; especially, now that I’ve fallen for the woman I have to protect. If hunting is the game, I won’t fail. I always hit my mark.
My phone rang and I thought it’d be Bryce, but it wasn’t. “What can I do for you, Chief?”
Colton Myers was the chief of police back in Wyoming. His call wasn’t unusual, because they often called me and my brothers when there were cases the local PD couldn’t solve. “I need your help,” he replied, his voice shaking.
The cab driver pulled up to the airport entrance and I passed him a wad of bills before getting out. “What’s going on? I’m about to get on a flight to head home.”
“Good. I’ll drop these files off with Reed, so you can see them when you get back.”
The din of the bustling city made it hard to hear him, but I could tell he was distraught. “Files for what?”
He sighed heavily. “You know how there’ve been missing hikers in Montana?”
“Yeah, I saw something about it before I left for New York.” It wasn’t uncommon for tourists to sway from the hiking trails or test their limits by doing stupid shit. Most of those people found themselves dead. I liked to climb the cliffs, but I was good at it.
“We’re missing people here too,” Colton confessed.
“It happens every year. Why does this case shock you?” I’d been gone for three weeks, so I hadn’t even paid attention to what was going on in Wyoming.
He huffed angrily. “About three weeks ago, eight men supposedly went missing in our mountains. Just this morning, I couldn’t get a hold of Grace. Her boss also called me and said she never showed up at their meeting last night. Her car is still at the hotel. It’s like she disappeared.”
“You’ve got to be shitting me,” I growled low.
Grace was his daughter and a good friend of mine. Hell, I’d wanted to be more than that for quite some time. I only held back from pursuing her out of respect for her father. She was one of the most beautiful women I’d ever known.
“Please, Ian. I have to find her.”
Hurrying through the doors, impatience flooded through my veins. “We’ll find her, if it’s the last thing I do . . . I swear.”

I loved the Circle of Justice series from the first book and each new book makes me love it that much more! And while I didn't love Aim as much as I loved Target, I still enjoyed reading it. Aim was fantastic and I can't wait to read the next book!
I really like Grace - she's just got one of those personalities where you can't help like and love her. She's very kind, she works hard, she's strong and brave and she can hold her own. Grace does have her insecurities, but she doesn't waste time being negative or undecided. She takes risks and chances and I thought she was a wonderful heroine.
There wasn't anything that I didn't love about Ian. He's protective, sweet, playful, and funny. He's quick to smile and tell a joke, but he does have a serious, cautious side too. Ian is willing to do anything to keep and make sure Grace stays safe and you never have to doubt his feelings for her either. It's obvious that he loves and cares about her - Ian is truly a standup guy and I couldn't love him any more than I do.
While Aim might not be favorite in the Circle of Justice series, I read it practically in one sitting. It was intriguing, suspenseful, exciting, and there were times when I just had to keep reading because I had to know what was going to happen next. I absolutely flew through this book, it was everything I loved from the danger and action to the love and heartwarming, sweet moments. I'm so excited for whatever's going to come next!
Aim can be read as a standalone, it's told from Ian and Grace's POV, and they do get their HEA.
