A THIRDS Novella

THIRDS agent Dexter J. Daley can’t wait to marry his fiancé, Team Leader Sloane Brodie, but first he’s looking forward to celebrating his bachelor party—which he intends to be a shenanigans-free evening of getting his groove on with family and friends.

Of course events don’t work out as planned, but for Dex that’s nothing new. One thing is for sure, dodging drug dealers and hired thugs amid booze, dancing—and even a bear costume—will guarantee it’s a night Dex will never forget. Now he just needs to survive all the fun.

Enjoy this bonus story from the THIRDS universe. These events occur between Darkest Hour Before Dawn and Tried & True in the series timeline. While reading this story would enhance your experience of the THIRDS series, it is not essential to read before Tried & True.

I’m so glad this came out on audio!

I absolutely love Mark Westfield’s narration of this series and was so happy Dreamspinner Press decided to release an audio for this fun, funny, sexy, and action packed novella. This hit all the right notes. I loved the dual POV, getting to see Sloane spend one on one time with Tony, and all the bachelor party shenanigans that were so typical of Dex – and everything is terrifically narrated by Westfield.

I had a great time listening to this and am looking even more forward to getting the next book, Tried & True, on audio! ?

Review Copy

Audio copy of Gummy Bears & Grenades (THIRDS #9.5) 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.
