A traumatic past doesn’t have to mean not having a future.

When Jason Diovardi, military elite, is removed from active duty after failing too many psych evals, he has only one goal in mind: get back into the field. It’s all he knows and all he thinks he’s good for, which is why he grudgingly accepts two live-in AI Companions to help him begin to recover from his severe PTSD. Chase and Shade are a matched pair, and Jason hopes they’ll keep each other distracted enough to leave him alone so he can go through the motions and be cleared for fieldwork.

Jason doesn’t expect to actually get better, and the progress he makes with his patient and caring Companions sneaks up on him—and so do unexpected feelings between the three of them. Now Jason might even be able to admit to being happy. But has he healed enough to allow himself to accept what Chase and Shade are offering?

Hope. Love. A reason to live.

This was a good read. I enjoyed this book. It is more of a science fiction read and maybe a more futuristic book. I enjoyed how Aidan made the characters not only human and human android also.

This book takes place in the future or at least I would believe that it did because of the human androids. Jason has a severe case of PTSD. He also has a severe sensitivity to touch. After coming back from his last mission as the only survivor, he has not been he same.

He is recommended to get a companion from AI Delegate to help with his PTSD and hopefully help him to be able to get back into the field again soon. That is how he meets Chase and Shade.

Chase and Shade are a mated pair of human androids. Shade has difficulties of his own because his past companion messed with his motherboard. So whereever Chase goes Shade goes and vice versa. Because they are a mated pair, Jason believes that they will be easier to get on with because they have each other and he can be left to do his thing.

Boy was he wrong, Chase and Shade both realize that Jason is in need of help so they slowly work their way into getting Jason to not only open up to them but also to trust them. As time goes on Jason realizes that he is starting to more than like these two men.

Can Chase and Shade help Jason piece back together his life while at the same time Jason does the same for Shade and Chase? Will Jason return to the field as soon as he is cleared to do so?

This was a really good read. I enjoyed the slow build up that this book had. It was not only Chase and Shade healing Jason but it was Jason doing the same for them in his own way as well. Aidan did a really good job on this book. Definitely a book worth reading.

Galley copy of Ruke of Thirds provided by DSP Publications in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
