gritty,intense sexually-charged read! 4.5 stars!
on 3 October 2013
this is the 5th book in Shannon McKenna's 'McCloud Brothers' series.i have read this series in order and can say that it is a good one.in my opinion the series has got better as it has go on,with the author providing us with colourful characters and great action-packed plots.
this book for me is no exception.it had her usual fast pace and intricate plot.in fact i will say that it was a surprise and if i'm honest quite the standout book so far.Nick's character was nothing like i thought he would be,which for once in a series wasn't a disappointment.this book is gritty,intense and full of action.the romance side of things i found a bit different in this book.this was no slow building love affair.this was more of a lust crazed somewhat volatile relationship,with plenty of sex.for me this was brilliant as it made the characters standout from those in the other books.
i will say that this is NOT a light read.its edgy,unpredictable and not all will enjoy the plot in this book,where a group are taking children,abusing them and trying to harvest their organs for profit.further,the use of prostitutes and level of violence in this book will also put some off.for me it was a great read.
i have read all the books in order so i had a good background knowledge, which for me in this series you need.i suppose this could be read as a stand-alone as necessary points are made,but i think it would be more appreciated if the other books were read first.this for me anyway has not been a waste as i have loved this series so far.
i would highly recommend this book and series so far.if your into edgy,intense, fast-paced romance that grips you from the first page,you'll love this!the next book is 'Ultimate Weapon' which is Tam's much awaited story.
