This is book 2 in the series. I didn’t read book 1 and jumped right into this one with no problems at all. Surprisingly for me, I didn’t have any problems in figuring this menage dynamic out, the author did a great job in this regard, I was eased in to the story and not forcibly dumped into this part of the saga. Good news for anyone contemplating this series, book one is free on ARe and the Publisher sites, see the links at the end of this post.
This book has it’s good points and some not so good. I feel that Lexi brought great life to the characters. I found their relationship believable and I felt a connection to the characters.
For me there was too much going on with the story, to many characters that I didn’t feel relevant and to many side stories. I truly believe that the story would have been so much stronger if the story were a bit more contained. Rely on the strength of Brock, AJ and Trent they are such wonderful characters. I totally understood the despair as Brock was taken but I wasn’t convinced on how the kidnapping took place. Brock was by far the strongest character here, his ability to think and evaluate his captive surroundings was well written. That is how I feel as the book stands as it is.
Now if the book was meant as a springboard for a continuation of the series it wet my appetite for more. I’m not so curious about the girlfriend but we were offered a glimpse into a character named Gent. He’s a bad boy with a story, I just know it. We also find a surprise brother.
The Book Description:
Several months after Trent Harte was drafted into the NFL, he, AJ Barnes, and Brock Everette are settling into their new home in Miami. Christmas is approaching and they are excited to share another holiday season with each other. Unbeknownst to them, William Harte, Trent’s estranged father double-crossed a deadly adversary and then disappeared. To draw William out of hiding, Trent becomes a target. In a horrible twist of fate, the kidnappers grab Brock instead leaving AJ and Trent scrambling to find a way get Brock back. Detectives believe Trent is responsible, and with each passing hour the likelihood of Brock returning home alive dwindles.
Brock traded his safety to ensure his lovers were out of harm’s way. He would do it again even knowing he’d end up captured and restrained in a part of town that no one in their right mind would willingly go. The kidnappers are terrifying, but Brock is a fighter, holding onto hope with both hands. He must decide to either wait to be rescued or find a way to escape. Stuck between the wills of a ruthless assassin and an insane mob thug, something needs to happen soon or he’ll never see Trent and AJ again.
