I liked Derringer so much, I just wish he had been a little more capable of standing up for himself when he was with Andrew in his past. It's painful to think of all the terrible ways Andrew treated Derringer. Derringer was able to see that Nathan needed to be a little tougher with his family; too bad it takes Nathan so long to figure that out.
There is some pretty, poetic writing in this book and I just love that. A few examples:
"Please go away, and take your half-assed promises of hope with you when you leave, because I can't take another second of them sitting on my windpipe, choking the life from me every minute of the day."
"When I haven't heard from you in a while, I start feeling like I'm suffocating. Then you call, and it's like the first real breath of fresh air fills my lungs in forever."
"Your kisses fix everything. They're like magic."
And of course there's more like the above. :) This may not have been my favorite book of this series, but I enjoyed it immensely and I did shed a tear or two. I have already pre-ordered Luka's book, which is up next. Looking forward to it.
This book is a wonderful addition to the world(s) that the author has created! And there was a cross-over visit from my absolute favorite character and his outrageous husband!! Yay!! If you've enjoyed the world of the Hard Hit books, or really any of the books in this "world", you are going to really enjoy Defend!
**I purchased this book and will purchase the audio version when it's available. I received nothing at all in exchange for this review. All comments & opinions here are totally my own.**
Defend is the 8th book in Charity Parkerson’s Hard Hit series. I cannot stress enough the need to read these books in order! Each story builds on the next, and a reader could be lost or a bit confused if starting the series out of order.
Nathan has made it to the big show in hockey. His need to care for everyone around him has left him lonely and desperately wanting the love of a man he’s been friends with forever—tattoo artist, Derringer. The catch is, his love interest is involved with Nathan’s younger brother, Andrew. Derringer catches Andrew cheating on him, and goes to his longtime friend, Nathan. The love triangle twists and turns, and Nathan is left with a choice to either defend his need to support his family or move forward and offer his heart to the one person who loves him unconditionally.
This series is addictive!! Highly recommend!!
On a side note, if you haven't read the ugly eternity series, book three is Jamie and Hawke and that's my favorite book in that series so I highly recommend it.
