Around halfway through the book, my brain and heart put the figurative brakes on. Oh no. NO, NO, NO. What has Charity done, why has she done this?! We aren't going here, are we? NO. It's not going to fit with these guys...my romance alarm bells were going off like crazy. And honestly I read almost the entire rest of the book feeling like my brain was split into two very different camps: one side of me was continuing to protest unexpected plot twists and the other side of my brain kept wanting to see what would happen and how an author that I generally really enjoy was going to make this work for me.
And then....wow. Honestly, Charity Parkerson does have a gift. As I read, it felt like a fresh breeze blew in and banished all the sorrow and angst from these characters. And it felt so right. And I was questioning my own judgement and then telling myself to shut up. (This book. Oy, it got to me!) Beautifully written, nicely developed characters, sweet and satisfying dialogue, plus super hot sexy times. Actually I'd love to see these guys again in a future book.
There were a few problems with this book. First was my error, I didn't realize I hadn't read book 2 of this series. (Not a problem so much and I'll go back and read it. I think I overlooked it when it came out because I didn't much like book 1 of this series.) There were several times that the wrong characters names were used, for example: "Ryan and Malik wore identical exasperated grins. Their eyes were laughing at Ryan's confusion." (First Ryan was supposed to be Logan.) There were also multiple instances of either repeated words or missing words (mostly articles or prepositions) and that's annoying. However, it wasn't so problematic that I couldn't make sense of the book, nor did it change my overall positive impression of how much I enjoyed this book and the process of reading it.
The agony and heartbreak between Logan and Malik in the first part of the book is painful to rea. And I think it's the way that Ryan mends those wounds that makes their special relationship work.
