This is a Romantic Suspense, and this is the 5th book in the Justice Seekers series. The beginning of this book did not pull me into this story, and It took me a while to get into this story. I loved parts of this book so much, but on the other hand there was parts of this book I really did not enjoyed. I felt it took me a long time to really care about the characters in this book. I love having a judge as the main characters because we did not get a Judge as the main characters a lot. I love seeing the story from a Judge's point of view. The suspense/mystery was slow to get me into it, but the twists and turns in the mystery was so good. I received an ARC of this book. This review is my own honest opinion about the book like all my reviews are.
Sidney is a judge in the process of adopting her 6 month foster child, but someone is trying to get her to stop a trial or else. Its the or else bit that's causing a commotion because now she and the baby's lives are in danger but hopefully US Deputy Marshal Tanner can keep them safe. This book was a trip and a half from the beginning. It was hard to to know who can Sidney trust because clearly there is someone out to get her and with a possible mole theres that question if they are really safe with those who are supposed to keep them safe. Thankfully she can trust Tanner and hope he can keep her safe before everything gets worse. I loved that there was so much going on with this book I just couldn't put it down. If you like a fast paced book that'll keep you on your toes then check this book out.
Laura Scott’s Rocky Mountain Standoff gives readers a suspenseful ride. Judge Sidney Logan is being targeted because of her upcoming trial, and the criminals will do anything to stop the trial. Sidney goes on the run with the help of the US Marshals. Tanner Wilcox pulls out all the stops to keep Sidney safe, but he comes to care about the judge and her almost-adopted baby. This story is action-packed. Explosions, shootouts, and plenty of plot twists kept me turning pages. Despite the constant threat of danger, readers really get to know the characters. Sidney isn’t the tough as nails rule oriented judge as she first appears. Tanner makes the perfect hero, putting his life on the line several times to save Sidney and Lily. And the banter between Tanner and his partner Colt keeps things light-hearted in the midst of the drama. I enjoyed both Hiding His Holiday Witness and Rocky Mountain Standoff (Books 4 & 5 in the Justice Seekers series.) I hope the series continues because I’d love to read a story about Colt. Overall Rating: 5 stars (I loved it, couldn’t put it down) Suspense Rating: 5 stars (Non-stop edge-of-your-seat suspense from start to finish) I received an ebook review copy of this book through NetGalley. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

"Rocky Mountain Standoff" is a romantic suspense novel. It's the fifth book in a series but works as a stand alone. The suspense was high throughout due to the danger to Sidney and her foster baby. Some parts didn't make sense, though, like why the deputies responsible for the courthouse security kept letting things come through without checking them. Or why the defendant kept threatening the people Sidney loved so she would find him not guilty when he knew only the jury could do that. Not to mention that his thugs kept shooting at her like she was the target. Or why another victim of this guy didn't go after the criminal (who was nearby) in revenge rather than threaten to kill Sidney, who was a victim like him. Anyway. The romance didn't work for me. I understand why Sidney was attracted to this handsome guy who made her feel safe and who was great with her foster baby. But in the last book, Tanner was complaining about how difficult she was to protect because she wanted to do her job so this trial could be completed. She's still "difficult" that way, just like he's stubborn about refusing to get needed medical help. He's charmed by the baby. Then he's suddenly passionately kissing her. Panicked she'll leave him. Declaring that "love was all that mattered" no matter their differences and she and the baby made his life worth living. Um. Where did this come from? Later, he kept pushing her to say they'll adopt a lot more children even though they both have intense jobs and she feels rather old to raise children. Personally, I felt like they weren't a good match for a long term relationship. There was no sex or bad language. I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
