Sequel to Smoke & Mirrors

In a matter of days, Dex has been kidnapped, tortured, killed, revived, become half Therian, offered the chance to become a spy, and accepted a proposal to marry his jaguar Therian boyfriend, Sloane Brodie. It’s been a lot to take in, and although Dex is still trying to wrap his head around everything that’s happened, he knows he has to move forward.

After the events of Smoke & Mirrors, Dex and Sloane find themselves in one of the most frightening situations of all: revealing the truth to their Destructive Delta family. When the dust settles, nothing will ever be the same, and it’s up to Dex to prove that in the face of change, the one thing that will always remain the same is family.

I love Mark Westfield’s narration for this series! I have yet to be disappointed by his narration of one of the THIRDS books. It’s got great character voices and good pacing…I just pop in my ear buds and then sit back, relax, and enjoy.

Taking place immediately following the events of Smoke & Mirrors, this story follows Dex and Sloane telling the team about the changes in Dex and, ultimately, about the changes to come to Destructive Delta.

“I know we’re the ones pushing this change, but we’re in this together. We always have been, and we always will be. Whatever happens, whatever you need, Sloane and I will be there for you.”

This series just keeps getting better. I had quite a few questions at the end of Smoke & Mirrors, particularly regarding Dex’s motives and was really happy they are looked at more in depth in this short, but action packed, installment.

It’s a short novella, but it’s got a lot packed in it, and it’s all done with cohesion, setting up the series for what’s still to come.

Their future might be uncertain, but one thing wasn’t— no matter what happened or what they faced, they had a family to come back to, one that grew stronger with every passing day. Destructive Delta wasn’t just a team. It wasn’t a badge or a patch on their sleeve. It was home.

I look forward to more THIRDS action – especially on audio!

Note: For the sticklers be warned – Westfield doesn’t give Hudson an English accent for some reason and his voice for Cael is different than in the rest of the series. He also has audible intakes of breath before speaking – often.

Review Copy

Audio copy of Thick & Thin provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:
