Nine months ago, Rowan Ward thought he had it all. Now he’s fighting to pull his shredded life together, buried in work and battling the kind of grief that destroys a man’s soul. When fires spring up around Cincinnati threatening Rowe’s friends and clients, he’s thrilled to find his old Army buddy, Noah Keegan in town. They were a hell of a team when they served together, so in-sync, it was rumored they could read each other’s minds.
Noah thought devoting his life to the Army would be enough. Then he realized he had no family and only one friend he cared about. When his enlistment was up, he found himself standing on Rowe’s doorstep, looking only for friendship but secretly hoping for more. He needs to know if their one unbelievable night together years ago wasn’t a mistake.
Caught in a dangerous game of fire and bullets, neither expects the inferno of emotion that ignites between them. One Rowe isn’t prepared to accept. One that could break Noah.
Book #3 is the Unbreakable Bonds series is another stellar achievement by Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott. This is Rowe’s story.
It has been 9 months since Rowe’s wife Melissa’s death and he is knee-deep in grief. A former Army buddy, Noah, winds up on his doorstep and the sizzle begins! There is lots of comfort, dirty talk and the kind of sex you’ve come to expect from this series.
A few notes:
1. This really cannot be read as a stand alone. All of the guys are in here and you are going to need to know their relationships and back story. Start Shiver and Shatter now if you haven’t already.
2. Noah and Rowe were smoking hot, but Snow and Jude from Shatter still have the top spot in my heart. I was as giddy as schoolgirl every time they were on page.
This is another great book in this series and it looks like Ian’s story is gonna be glorious! Most people thought Ian’s story would be book #3, but there is a little twist with Ian’s story and it helps explain why his book wasn’t the third in the series.
