Now that Macen “Hammer” Hammerman shares the bond he’s long craved with Raine Kendall and his best friend, Liam O’Neill, he should be looking forward to a bright future. But recent trauma has exhumed the demons Hammer thought long buried. He must confront them while Raine fights to forget her past and Liam struggles to keep their new family intact.
When a shadowy figure emerges, determined to right old wrongs, he sets in motion a plot that threatens to tear the trio apart forever. With emotions running high and forces mounting against them, can they battle their foes and bury their ghosts so they can live happily ever after?
I love BDSM stories and this series is a great one.
This book is just a guilty pleasure crazy ride. The story goes in directions that really cannot be anticipated from the prior books and I loved it!
The trio is really challenged in this book as external forces threaten their happiness. Finally, we learn about Macen’s past and it is his past which threatens them. I thought this was the most emotional that we have seen Macen and I truly felt that with his emotional breakthrough in this book, the trio is on the best footing ever.
This book has a bit of a suspense/crime mystery involved as Macen is in danger of spending most of his life in jail. The question for the friendly characters is who is out to get him. This threat to Macen and the accompanying loss of control forces Macen to examine his life and make deep emotional changes. I loved his struggle in this book (he’s been my favorite in the series). I also loved how he has to lean on Liam and Raine (whereas previously he has been the steady one for them).
I loved the new characters that we got to meet. Liam’s parents come to visit and their arrival changes the dynamic of this book. There are some surprising twists that some readers might have to adjust their thinking for. I especially loved Liam’s dad. There is one scene toward the end that might be the biggest hoot in the series!
This book really shows the three developing a true equal relationship. Throughout the four books in this series, these characters and their relationship has changed and grown. The relationship between three people is deeply complex and I have really enjoyed the journey these characters have taken.
Of course there is a lot of hot sex, but it is really the emotional connection between these characters that is the most important.
The series is nicely wrapped up and there is a sweet epilogue.
