That said, I have to review each story individually because my reactions to them are so different.
I unreservedly loved 'Rerouted.' Five stars. The author used all three points of view to great effect. The issue they're confronting is common in polyamory and illustrates the trickiness of communication we all face in every relationship, made worse for there being more than two, among other complications. I've always loved the handling of Mace's and Aiden's sometimes conflicting mental and emotional issues throughout the series, and how Chris's personality compliments them so well, when Chris isn't causing the problems.
Worth the price of the book, for me. Good thing.
'Gridlocked' didn't have a conflict that an adult conversation couldn't have resolved, and the single point of view left me distanced from Meredith. Tanya's a cool character, but Mere's the one with the greater overall character arc and you get none of that in this story, which is a shame. It could've used another edit pass for repetition of meanings, too. Don't tell me what the dialogue means, I can see what it means, they just SAID that. Weak story.
I was annoyed most of the way through 'Derailed' because Steph is a jerk and I hate this trope. Two stars. I only hope this resolution means I can finally start to like her in subsequent stories.
For the story elements, I'm glad to have read these, and others liked those last two better than I did, so YMMV as always.
The blackout setting is awesome as well as the coverage of the topic of doxing. You will get more out of this story if you have read all the books. Chris gets a great HEA.
Gridlocked is everything. An excellent romance about two very different people who are drawn to each other. I adore that the sexy times are off the hook and so owned by T and Meredith. I felt the conflict between these two guarded women was on point. Great characters. Great love story.
Derailed. This story of Angel and Steph did not work for me. The writing is still good but Steph's issues and her way of coping are so painful to read in terms of being irrated that she needs to grow up, get therapy and be emotionially brave. I loved Angel trying to do right by himself.
I think it isn't that I wouldn't have been into this story I just wish I didn't have to watch the hot, cold, crazy and had the romance centered more after Steph committed to trying to give it a go.
It seems like FF is NOT my cup of tea.
Angel and Steph were just OK. The writing was great, the sex scenes were super hot, as always, but I had a big problem with Steph's insecurities and well she did hurt Angel too much.
Overall it was a great anthology and I was glad to revisit Ray, Oli, Caleb and the whole team.
Looking forward to the next books in this series.
I read Third Rail, too. Thank you for that.
I can't stand Meredith, period. So I wasn't so into what was up with her.
Maybe I'll come back to it.
I just think this author is genius and everything he writes transcends the genre while simultaneously hitting the notes we expect. Often subverting them.
