**My review contains Lock & Key and Random & Rare spoilers**
Jill is now several months pregnant. She is carrying Grace and Miller's baby as a surrogate. A move that earned her massive loyalty and respect from Grace's bff, Boner. Jill didn't have the most welcome introduction to the club. She was saved by Dig many years ago but when she tried to pay her respects to Dig's widow, Grace, she was turned away by Boner at every attempt. I liked that we got a few of those scenes.
But Jill is no stranger to the life as an old lady. She was Catch's woman and he is Becca's father. But she got shot of him and moved to Meager to stay with his sister, Tania, and his mom, Rae. I loved how Boner was with Becca. Her calling him Bo-Bo was adorable. I also liked how Jill wasn't afraid to go after what she wanted. She wanted Boner and made sure he knew it. Of course, Boner is attracted to her but Jill isn't a 'hit it and quit it' kind of girl and he's not sure how to handle it.
We get quite a bit of Boner's background - his mom's death, his first love, his introduction to crime. But I really would have liked more scenes with Boner's stint in juvie. Particularly since that's where he met Dig. In fact, I would have liked more scenes in general of Boner's past with Dig. But I would like scenes with Dig all day, every page. That's just me. Lol.
A new thorn in the One-Eyed Jacks' side is introduced and concluded in this book. It actually had me questioning why Boner didn't deal with this sooner.
I also liked Butler's role. He's been clean for a year and I like his confident, take charge attitude. I'm looking forward to his book.
The epilogue was brilliant. Jill's gift to Grace and Miller is beyond words beautiful. I was so emotional. Iron & Bone didn't knock Random & Rare from the number one spot but it's definitely a worthy book in the series. Well done!
Love this series. Boner is so interesting. He has so many dimensions. He is the Enforcer for his MC. He is the loyal friend to his close circle. He has that knack for lightening tense situations. He has experienced such pain and loss in life. He is someone you'd want to know and have in your life. He deserves the sweetness of Jill.
Top things I liked about this book:
1 -- I think this will be reoccurring theme for me with this author and series -- the voice of this author. I think she has done an excellent job. Everything I look for in a book is here; well developed, multi-dimensional characters, an interesting plot line, just enough detail in the backstory, romance that builds and builds in a realistic way, length that goes with the story rather than too short or too long -- just right. All the elements.
2 -- The cover here is awesome. The title is perfect. You don't get it until you dive into the book, but it pulls you. Once you dive into the story, you get it. It really is perfection.
3 -- The intelligence in word artistry is amazing. This author has such a poetic, but at the same time gritty and precise, way of constructing her sentences, paragraphs, pages, chapters .. throughout this book and this whole series is really very impressive.
Were there items I didn't appreciate? Reflecting and I'm not sure any are really worth noting. I'm pretty happy with this book. I'm so happy I listed to Daniela and gave this author/series another try. Happy isn't really enough. I throw out a special thanks to her.

First sentence: RUNNING. We're always running from something.
Last sentence: Those eyes will feel and see and reflect out bright. Always.
Boner was so broken and Jill, who overcame her own nightmares, was perfect for him. We also get to see a beautiful moment shared with Lock & Grace. They get a gift that they have been wanting and it was like revisiting old friends. I was so happy for them!
I am excited for Butler and Tania to shake things up!!!!
Cat Porter is an auto buy for me!
Boner is tough, sexy but he's also smart. He's loving but brutal when he needs to be.
Jill is just trying to get her life together; taking care of her daughter while doing the ultimate favor for a friend.
Even though there is an instant attraction between these two, their story takes time and has a realistic feel for the way it unfolds. I love this authors writing and her attention to detail is spot on. The life with an MC is not just for background. She does her homework which makes her characters and storyline believable and a pleasure to read. I can't wait for her next one. If you love MCs this series is a must read.
