Max wraps up the Sierra View series with a cute romance

Code White (The Sierra View #4)Code White by Max Walker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a nice read with a little bit of angsty and a little bit of drama and two MCs who have an instant connection which develops into something stronger.

As with all of Max’s romances, there’s a lot of dialogue, a steamy interlude or two (or more), a sudden plot twist which comes from left field and a nicely tied up ending that brings everything together.

Crazy antics in the latest addition to this series

Code BlueCode Blue by Max Walker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5* Once again I want to rate this higher but there’s just a few niggling little things which stop it hitting the top mark. This time round it’s typos and editing mix ups on top of another stalker plot.

I actually mostly liked the stalker plot, it worked better than the one in Code Silver, but it seems this hospital and the people connected with it have a great talent for attracting the crazy!

Crow is Red’s former PA from book two and Ethan is another of the Sierra View doctors. I thought their initial meeting and attraction was well done and there was quite a slow burn before they became intimate.

I also loved how there was no relationship drama, these two opened up and talked honestly to each other which helped reduce the insta love feeling.

I’d guessed who the stalker was going to be and the reveal worked, even if the situation as a whole needs a bit of suspended belief.

Overall I still think book two has worked the best but i look forward to the fourth and finding out more about Spencer. And again the lovely cover helps.

Another good effort but could have been great

Code Red (The Sierra View #2)Code Red by Max Walker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

EDIT: Im uping my rating to 4 stars because I did actually enjoy this one and I think I was being a tad harsh knocking two stars off for a minor plot issue.

Argh Max Walker has done it again to me. I always love the ideas behind his books and, in the main, they’re always an enjoyable read. But there’s always something which just stops me from being able to rate them a max 5*.

This time round it’s a bizarre side plot which involves blackmail for no really justified reason – i.e. the reason given in the book plot just didn’t work at all for me – so all the tensions in what was a very fast instalove story came via something I couldn’t fully get onboard with.

Still, both Caleb and Red were lovely characters, I loved their banter and their emotional connection to each other which did feel like it was one of those – attraction at first sight – situations, they probably got to the declarations of love a bit quickly but other than that, their romance was super sweet.

I also absolutely loved the intro chapter, it was a clever way to introduce Red and it worked really well.
I also liked how the red herring of Red’s dad possibly being against their romance worked out and I liked that Red, once he decided he wasn’t going to stay in the closet and Caleb wasn’t going to be a secret, went all out to declare it.

And, once again, Max has two of the most beautiful men on his book cover!
