My Review

I read the first book years ago and immediately fell in love with Blake. And I was clamoring for the second book, which felt more like Beckett’s story. And here we are at the third.
This story also felt more like the Beckett story and I wish we would have had more time with Cole. And also more time with my man Blake, although there were plenty of sexy moments all around.
Mostly, I loved the theme of the story. Redemption. I love Beckett and the falls he’s taken to make everyone else okay, which was why Eve pissed me off several times throughout this story. But I should have had faith in her that I didn’t. Enough said.
I missed Cole’s story. I felt like this series became the Beckett series after book one. As much as I loved him, I thought each of the “brothers” brought something to the table. And although, we get larger glimpses of Blake and Cole in this book, it was largely about Beckett.
There were some other horrible things that happened in the book, I wished didn’t. But I’m glad the author wrapped up the story with other possibly for the future. Otherwise, I would have been pissed. Cryptic, I know. You have to read to understand.
This series is so worth the read. If you haven’t read, you are truly missing out. It’s one for the record books. Personally, I wish I had a signed copy of the books for my bookshelf. It would sit proudly next to the other select few that grace my shelves.
Now go forth and buy this one. You won’t regret.
