It was SO FREAKING GOOD!!!! Nothing like her other books IMO, although Conrad did remind me a little of Dane Harcourt (Matter of Time series). That deadpan sense of humour, protectiveness, devotion and continual exasperation with Trev (I experienced nostalgic moments of Dane and Jory's banter).
I loved it... the pace never faltered. The story twisted and turned and kept me at the edge of my seat.
I have to admit... even until the very last page, when there should have been calm and serenity, there was concern that anything could happen... it was like walking on the edge of a cliff.
Highly recommend this book to others!
But despite that drawback, this was definitely a book I couldn't put down, with an especially effective portrayal of an intense relationship between a dangerous and highly possessive man and his deliciously high strung, sexy mate.
For one, the relationship between Landry and Trevan is not exactly traditional. Landry is dangerously close to a psychopath and is, in fact, believed to be bipolar because of his attitude and the actions he does. Trevan on the other hand, is probably more messed up than Landry but he tends to keep that fact quite. As long as they rely on each other, though, their lives are perfect because that is all they ever need... the love and security of one another. But it is very sweet, in a way. What is actually the best part of this book is the way these two grow throughout the story. They start out as needing constant attention from one another but then grow to the point where knowing the other is safe makes them content.
The conflicts within the story are a bit chaotic in that there are so many situations they get themselves into and have to find solutions to. From Trevan's job as a runner, murder and then kidnapping, not to mention Landry's family, it is a bit hard to follow the conflicts without getting confused a time or two. It is very entertaining but possibly the worst thing with so many conflicts is the fact that it doesn't exactly add up and a ton of questions are wondered and not all of them are answered. More than that, my biggest problem (and the reason I couldn't love this story) was I felt like the flashbacks were very jolty. With Calmes, I normally don't mind her flashbacks but in this story, they grated on my nerves. Maybe because there were a lot of flashbacks of just sex between Trevan and Landry that got on my nerves (which I felt like added nothing to the story) or the fact that the flashbacks didn't really relate to whatever was happening in the present. Either way, I didn't appreciate them and they made the story drag for me.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. I had my problems but I can't deny that Calmes has a unique 'voice' in her writing that always draws me into the story and into the characters. I adore her characters especially Landry and Trevan because they were so dysfunctional. I wished there had been more elaboration on certain parts (like Landry's family and Trevan's job) but it is still a very entertaining read. Now if we could only get Conrad's story next...
I love books that have an intensity and a willingness to just commit, and these characters certainly have that. I know that I would never want to have to carry Landry with all his issues, but Trevan was hot, I could date him :) and he and Landry really had something special. The whole kidnapping was just a plot extension for me, I wasn't really interested in or surprised by it, but it just showcased how the boys were connected and how much they loved each other.
I rate this a keeper and a reread.
