Ian Pierce is the chef and part owner of the hottest restaurant in Cincinnati, his chosen family is full of happy relationships, and the scruffy, snarky cop who has been haunting his dreams is one step closer to being in his bed. But everything comes crashing down when the past he narrowly escaped nine years ago comes to a deadly head.
Hollis Banner was enamored of Ian at first sight. He’s kept his distance, knowing the gorgeous, self-confident man is out of his league. Yet there’s no standing aside when Boris Jagger escapes a raid. Jagger’s world has been nearly destroyed and this time, the crime boss is coming after Ian and his friends personally.
Hollis will do whatever it takes to keep Ian safe as they escape to a safe house with a couple of Ian’s overprotective friends. And Ian finds himself in a race to unlock painful memories—memories containing information that could take down the very last of Jagger’s illegal operations forever.
Trigger warning: Flashbacks to abuse could be possible triggers for some.
Devour is the last book in the Unbreakable Bonds series and is about Ian and Hollis. This book ties up the series perfectly and is filled with heart throbbing moments and heart warming emotions. Reading other books in the series is required to understand the story.
Ian and Hollis is familiar to all who have read the series and this book focus on them and how they finally take the step towards each other and find their happily ever after. All those who have read the series knows Ian as the man who is the glue that holds Lucas, Snow and Rowe together. This book shows the depth of Ian and his past and what he had to go through and what he had to overcome to reach where he was. My heart broke for Ian. What he had to go through was nothing short of heart breaking. But I loved that he found Hollis. Hollis is just amazing. He is understanding, patient and the kind of man Ian needs. Ian and Hollis and their love story captured my heart. Ian is such a strong person that the depth of his strength and courage is astounding. I loved that he was having so many layers than what I had expected. Hollis is equally amazing. His love for Ian and his unwavering support and acceptance of him, was heart warming. Their love story and the way authors gave them their happily ever after made this book truly special. Lucas, Andrei, Snow, Jude, Rowe and Noah plays an equally important part in this story and reading about them made me fall in love more. The bond shared by Lucas, Snow, Rowe and Ian plays an important part in the book and now their bond is enriched by their respective partners. I love this book because it celebrates the friendship/brotherhood of the four men and nothing gives more pleasure than reading about it.
There is action and suspense in this book like the previous books and also the conclusion of the story arc that started in Shiver. The ending is heart throbbing and all the loose ends are tied up in this book.
Devour is the beautifully and emotionally crafted conclusion to the Unbreakable Bonds Series. The book will take you on a journey that is gut wrenching, heart throbbing and soul stirring. You will fall in love with them all. Highly Recommended.
