My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A word to the wise, don’t start reading this at 10.30pm otherwise you won’t get to sleep until 2.45am like I did last night.
This book is everything I’d hoped it would be and is a brilliant follow on from Shiver and Shatter. Rowe is still reeling from the murder of his wife Mel nine months ago when his old Ranger buddy Noah arrives having finally left the service.
Noah is the only man Rowe has ever had an emotional connection to outside of his friendships with Lucas, Snow, Ian and the men they love, but he ran after one steamy night in Prague years before Mel.
Now that Noah’s back in his life, Rowe is wondering whether running was a huge mistake although the guilt he feels with Mel’s death, and the looming threat from Boris Jagger, is still holding him back.
But one night a little bit of green-eyed jealousy and a touch of booze lets the walls down and Noah back in.
What follows then is the usual emotionally gripping and scorching hot ride you’d expect from these two wonderful writers.
The suspense and mystery in this book is cleverly paced and, unlike the first two, there is a sudden twist I didn’t see coming. It also makes it clear why Ian couldn’t be the subject of book three and neatly sets everything up for both his story with Hollis and the conclusion to the criminal activity which had threaded through all the Unbreakable Bonds books so far.
Having to wait now until spring next year for Ian’s story to round up this tale of four incredible men and the ones they fall in love with is torture!
