Calvin Summers and Ethan Hobbs have been best friends since childhood, but somewhere along the line, their friendship evolved into something more. With the Therian Youth Center bombing, Calvin realizes just how short life can be and no longer keeps his feelings for his best friend a secret. Unfortunately, change is difficult for Ethan; most days he does well to deal with his Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety. Calvin’s confession adds a new struggle for Ethan, one he fears might cost him the friendship that’s been his whole world for as long as he can remember.
As partners and Defense Agents at the THIRDS, being on Destructive Delta is tough at the best of times, but between call-outs and life-threatening situations, Calvin and Ethan not only face traversing the challenges of their job, but also working toward a future as more than friends
The THIRDS gang is back! This time it’s Cobbs’ story.
Calvin and Ethan are more than best friends now, but they’re not exactly boyfriends. Calvin doesn’t want to push Ethan because of his struggles with Selective Mutism and Social Anxiety, so they’re taking things very slow. However, if they want to move forward in their relationship, Ethan has to stop running from problems and Calvin needs to quit shutting his friend down.
As long as they were together, they’d make it through anything. Them against the world.
I was delighted to finally read Calvin and Hobbs’ POV and I enjoyed getting to know them better overall. These guys are full of surprises. They’re both sweet, quiet and, as it turns out, they’re also kinky. I would love to see them perform Shibari rope bondage.
As always, it was a lot of fun to spend time with the crazy Destructive Delta team. Their frolicking and bickering puts a smile on my face every time. In this book they’re going through a hard training that’s supposed to prepare them for what they’ll have to face soon.
The ending is a cliffhanger. It pains me, because the waiting is torture, but at the same time it makes me even more excited for the seventh installment. I really can’t wait see what’s going to happen next.
