My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jumped into first place as my favourite in this series and a really good narrative which covers a number of delicate issues with sensitivity.
My only criticism was that Reyes’ big secret drove his I internal monologues perhaps just a tad too much. I had an idea of what it might be and I was half right but I think, for me at any rate, the impact of it was lessened by a feeling of “finally it’s out there” when his past caught up with him.
That was the only thing I didn’t enjoy about this story though. Both Miles and Reyes have been well-developed characters in this series and I fell for the strong, silent firefighter turned cowboy just as hard as Miles did.
I also appreciated the care AM gave to having Miles recover from his abusive and manipulative ex-boyfriend. No sudden cure just because he found Reyes attractive and a lot of patience and consideration was given to their developing sexual relationship.
I’m looking forward to seeing who will be up next.
