Of the four books in the series, the quality is good, but as you might expect from my review title, there are ups & downs. The first book, "Harder" features Adam Stark as he struggles with his mother's death, the implosion of his family as his father battles Alzheimer's & a newfound love. While I felt the family drama was well handled, the relationship between Adam & Calla was glossed over.
Book Two is a story of regret & forgiveness as Dalton, brother number two, has to overcome his depression, alcoholism & reclaiming the woman whose love he had pushed away in a futile attempt to spare her the pain of watching his life spiral out of control.
Book Three is the least likeable as Ava, the youngest of the Stark children, runs amok through her post-high school year. She displays incredible immaturity & rather than turn to anyone to help her, she allows herself to get dragged into danger as a mule for the local motorcycle gang. The characters from West's great "Burnout" series ride to the rescue. But I spent a good portion of time wanting to slap Ava upside the head!
Book Four features Jonah, older than Ava & hopelessly in love with her best friend, Sienna. I find it annoying that the plot jumps back & forth, but that may just be my quirk, so I didn't factor that into my rating of four stars.
"Preacher" is next up in the Men of Rapid City books. I read it prior to finishing this series, but West is very good at weaving plots in & out. I'd actually recommend reading it before reading the last of the Stark Ink series, so you can understand some of the dialogue.
This is another hit for Dahlia West, a great wordsmith, who knows how to write intelligent dialogue & keep all her characters fresh & interesting! Enjoy reading this!
Now I'm off to read the Burnout series, then Preacher. I like this author's style and I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into an interesting story across the series.
