Mr. Match is the final book, the only book that you need to have read all 4 of the previous books before getting to this one. Oliver Shrike. I have been waiting not so patiently to get his story. I first met Oliver in Happily Ever After: A Day in the Life of the HEA when he was just five years old. The only boy of Spencer and Veronica Shrike, living with five sisters. I couldn't wait to find out what he was going to be when he grew up, where his life would take him.
Reading the first 4 books has filled us in pretty well on how drastically Oliver's life changed when he was just a freshman in college when he and four of his friends were accused of rape. Now, ten years later, he is still running Hook Me Up, an online dating service he started with his sister Ariel when he was just a teenager.
Katya Kalashova kept me guessing throughout this book. She's suddenly back in Fort Collins after four years of being away. Why is she back now? Now, when each of the Misters have once again been put through the wringer, still dealing with fallout from the "fateful night" ten years ago? Is she involved with one or possibly more, of the outside forces who seem bound and determined to destroy the Misters?
I love how we are taken into Oliver and Katya's heads with the chapters being told in alternating points of view. The flashbacks to the six months Oliver and Katya spent together were some of my favorite moments in the book. Ms. Huss writes steamy sex scenes yes, but she writes the "feels" even better. As she mentions in the EOBS, sometimes sex isn't about the sex, it's about the feels and let me tell you, she nails the feels perfectly.
This book kept me on the edge of my seat, had me guessing at every page what was going to happen next. The twists and turns in this story left me spinning. Who is really behind The Silver Society? How do the Russians and Lucio Gori Senior fit into the whole scheme of things? Are the Misters finally going to find some peace and get their happily ever afters?
I am so impressed with how Ms. Huss kept all the details straight, and let me tell you, there's a lot of details to remember over the course of 5 books. Once again I pictured a big white board with each of the Misters on it, with lines crisscrossing it tying each clue and scenario together. There were several characters I was glad to see big red X's over their faces, and others I still had a question mark on until the very end.
I am anxiously looking forward to Five Aston's book, which will come out later next year. His story is going to be one heck of a ride, I just know it!
Brilliant conclusion to the Mister series, Julie!!
Oliver Shrike takes after his father, Spencer. He is seriously chiseled, good looking, and inked up. This man also has a romantic soul like Spencer Shrike, and he is fiercely devoted to and protective of the women in his life.
“I will throw everything away to keep her.” –Oliver
Ms. Huss artfully shows Oliver’s vulnerability and loneliness through a poem tattooed on his chiseled abs. Song of the Open Road reflects Oliver as trapped and yearning to be free and understood.
Katya Kalashova mysteriously reappears at a significant point in Oliver’s life. He doesn’t see the connection because he has been smitten with the young blonde from the moment he laid eyes on her. She is scarred, scared and leads a life filled with lies. She’s one of these delicious characters who are not easily pegged in the protagonist or antagonist column until the end.
The secrets of the nefarious Silver Society are laid open as Mr. Match’s story unfolds. Through the dual narration of Katya and Oliver, readers learn of the vast number of secrets each is keeping as well as the long-reaching forces influencing and controlling their lives. Huss’ masterful story telling allows her to create epic, suspenseful conspiracy thrillers that are artfully woven together. She has included many secondary characters from all the books in the series in the explosive zenith of Mr. Match. She has also included little tidbits from her Rook & Ronin series and spin-offs that will delight her long-time fans.
“Don’t look at what you lost, look at what you have left.” –Oliver
Throughout most of this book, I felt the deep sadness of the characters. The sense of dread didn’t tie me in knots as much as it made me feel some of the characters’ sense of hopelessness, but those Mrs.’ to the misters gave me hope. Behind every good mister is a great mistress (or sister) nudging him in the right direction.
Each book of this series has a unique flavor and flow, but Ms. Huss maintained the overall arc of the story going by revealing a little more with each new book. Mr. Match is a wonderfully satisfying series finale.
