About the Author
Jack L. Pyke blames her dark writing influences on living close to one of England’s finest forests. Having grown up hearing a history of kidnappings, murders, strange sightings, and sexual exploits her neck of the woods is renowned for, Jack takes that into her writing, having also learned that human coping strategies for intense situations can sometimes make the best of people have disastrously bad moments. Redeeming those flaws is Jack’s drive, and if that drive just happens to lead to sexual tension between two or more guys in a D/s relationship, Jack’s the first to let nature take its course.

WOW! OMG! AWESOME! Gut-wrenching, dark, gritty, and beautiful!!!!!! Don't get me wrong I love a good romance with a gloss over feel, some good angst and plot followed by a perfect happy ever after. If that is what you are looking for, then put this set of books on your TBR list. Also if you looking for pages and pages of steamy sex scenes, especially ones centered around a BDSM theme, then don't read these.
This set of books are real life. They make you love, cry, scream, tear your hair out, bite your nails, groan with arousal, hurt, love, cry and love some more. There are no pretty bows, no perfect love and romance. Yes there is sex, there is BDSM, there is a threesome full of extremely HOT men. There is angst, a LOT of angst, but it isn't fixed with some magically romantic gesture of love and happy ever after. These three men, and you could say a fourth (but that is spoiling), love fiercely, even when most would have jumped shipped and run screaming. They love unconditionally, even when life shows us everyday that the slightest fall or slip-up is a reason for divorce. Their love is beautiful and terrible. Their love has seen the depths of hell that would leave even the strongest person whimpering in fear and locked in box of terror, but yet they persevere and hold tight to each other. A person's love is hardest on the ones they love, The ones who love us are the ones that can do the most damage to our hearts, Yet these three men still hold on. I so can't wait for their "happy ever after" but I FEAR it the most because it will mean the end to the story for these three wounded men who are at their strongest together. Don't....fear the end!
If after all of that and you are still interested then PLEASE read these books. But hold on tight, grab tissues, make sure your Kindle is in a waterproof and shatterproof case (because trust me you will want to throw it and often) and hold on for the ride of your life. Oh and if you aren't British and aren't familiar with British colloquialism then make sure to have a tablet or computer handy to look up some of the phrases.
I could say a lot more about these books, but that would be spoiling and I think once you are spoiled too much about these books then you will miss the impact they can have. Besides there are plenty of reviews that can give you a blow by blow description for each book. Book three was the hardest one for me and I do agree with some that it doesn't really advance the story line. However to get the true impact of the story then you need to read book 3. Just know if you feel the need to re read them (and I can't wait because I know I missed a lot the first time through) then you could probably skip book 3 then.
If you are a person that has trigger problems: especially with rape, emotional and psychological trauma and disorders, then don't read these books.
Following the aftermath of the events in book two, Jack, Jan and Gray have a lot to deal with as they all try to deal with the fallout from Jack & Jan’s kidnapping. As you can imagine this is a rather traumatic as Jack adopts an ostrich attitude and thinks that throwing himself back into his work will block out what happened and keep him sane. BIG MISTAKE.
As hard as he tries to escape the events, they are there, pulling at the fringes of what little sanity he still has. It’s not just him that is suffering though, we get to see how this affects Jan, Gray and his father. Jan’s pain is almost as unbearable as Jack’s as he also is carrying the guilt of not being able to stop what happened to them both. He is forced to keep his distance, physically due to the fact his scent acts as a regressive trigger for Jack, but emotionally he is always there no matter what.
We learn a lot in this book, getting a look at how Gray operates professionally and that man makes the Sahara look like the Polar ice cap, I have no idea how he manages to stay so detached. He even manages to stay seemingly detached when things fall apart with his relationship with Jack. Now that scene as one I didn’t see it coming and it shocked me, and made me want to comfort him.
There are flashbacks to the kidnap and abuse suffered and these are although tough scenes, they were handled well, as was Jack’s inevitable and unstoppable breakdown. The detail woven into the scenes was clearly very well researched and thought out. My heart broke for him, but also for those left behind as he got the help he so desperately needed.
‘Martin’ making himself known and getting to see the other side of the coin (so to speak) was interesting, to see the personality that takes over when Jack either can’t or won’t face things. As much as I should dislike him, he is one hell of an interesting character.
The story flowed easily and I was upset when it ended, I am now officially suffering from a book hangover and missing these three. At least I don’t have too long to wait until Gray’s book is out.
This is one author I am adding to my ‘must read’ list as this series has given me one hell of a book hangover – but one I would happily experience again and again.
