Life for Dexter J. Daley has never been easy, but he’s always found a way to pick himself back up with a smile on his face. Taken from his home, and the arms of his boyfriend and THIRDS partner, Sloane Brodie, Dex finds himself in a situation as mysterious and lethal as the Therian interrogating him. Dex learns what he’s secretly believed all along: his parents’ death wasn’t an accident.
Discovering the whole truth about John and Gina Daley’s homicide sets off a series of events that will change Dex and Sloane’s lives forever. As buried secrets rise to the surface and new truths are revealed, Dex and Sloane’s love for each other is put to the test, with more than their relationship on the line. If traversing the waters of murder and secret government agencies wasn’t enough, something inexplicable has been happening to Dex—and nothing will ever be the same.
In the seventh installment of the THIRDS series we get a lot of answers to a lot of question. There’s so many interesting informations and moments to talk about, but then again, it’s very easy to spoil anything. One thing’s for sure, there’s an exciting change coming.
When Dex is interrogated by a lethal Therian, he learns that his parents were deliberately killed. The truth hits him quite hard and, as if this wasn’t bad enough, there has been something inexplicable happening to him. Also, with all the crazy series of events going on, him and Sloane have to deal with some serious ups and downs in their relationship.
I’m your home.
This book feels way more domestic than all the previous ones, which I think is nice and sweet in a way. I loved the gritty beginning and I gobbled up the hurt/comfort as well as the hot sexy times. I enjoyed myself immensely with the interactions, closeness between Sloane, Dex and their family and teammates. More importantly, I adored the little plot twists through the whole story. I’m really happy with how things turned out and I certainly can’t wait for more.
Now excuse me while I go read this all over again because I already miss everyone.
