The Boys are back in town – Blaze really ramps up the heat down in Oklahoma

BlazeBlaze by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This review should be accompanied by a soundtrack of Thin Lizzy’s The Boys Are Back In Town, Gary Moore & Phil Lynott’s Out In The Fields, add a dash of Donna Summer’s Love To Love You Baby, and round it off with a final encore of Pull Up To The Bumper from Grace Jones and Etta James’ classic I Just Want To Make Love To You.

Yes, Lucas, Snow, Rowe, Ian and the rest of the gang are back in the book we’ve all been waiting for – the wedding of the decade – minus a couple of hiccups on the way.

I also have to say the authors’ note at the end of this #ARC made me ridiculously happy and completely brightened up my day.

So, onto Blaze, a title so appropriate for what lies between the pages that it really couldn’t be more perfect. Andrei and Lucas tear up the sheets in this one and it’s even hotter than their origin story! Nothing like the thought of a lifetime together to get the juices flowing and oh boy do they.

The opening to this book is bloody genius and had me almost snorting my cup of tea, so thanks for that ladies 🙂 The pace only continues as we dive back into the dreadful childhood that Lucas and Snow left behind when they signed up for the Army and got out of their home town.

Great plotting once again drives the suspense element of this book as it examines the dodgy practices that can come along with a company’s desire for profit over all else.

I won’t go into details as it works best when the narrative slowly reveals itself throughout as things aren’t what they seem when the book first starts.

This series, and its accompanying spin off Ward Security, is absolutely in my top five favourite reads of any genre.

The world these two authors have crafted is as real to me as the one outside my front door (although mine’s sadly lacking as many hot men 😉 ) and I have loved journeying in it.

So you can imagine my delight with this unexpected gift of a love story – and a side order of kick ass-ery – which pulls together all the elements which have made them my favourites.

Family, friendship, loyalty, brotherhood, courage, honesty, acceptance, justice, sacrifice, humour and, of course, love (and the hot hot hot sex), are all found in the hearts of the four men at the centre of this world and this book holds that tradition high.

Read it and try not to tear up at the end as “Forever” really does hold true.
