BLURB: 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 Sloane Brodie, his boyfriend and THIRDS partner, 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 life 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.



I’m in a dilemma…..I can’t decide whether Charlie Cochet is a book genius or a book devil?

The jury is still out for deliberation on that one but what I can tell you with 100% certainty, is that this is one of the best Paranormal Series that I have ever read, each book just gets better and better, is their no end to her talent?

The author has this most amazing ability of interweaving suspense with romance. Sloane and Dex’s relationship was wonderful and I loved the book even more because of those two.
I went in to reading this book with high expectations and got blown away, it was so much more than I expected. The author tortured us throughout.

Little sentences like “change is coming” left us thinking “what?”, “what does that mean?” – read it yourselves to find out exactly what that means.

This is Dex and Sloane’s story, but we do get a glimpse of Seb and Hudson. These are the MCs of the next book and I will tell you now, I WANT IT NOW!

 As always, the humour is still there, the bickering between Dex and Ash was hilarious – I love these two together.
From the book blurb, you know that Dex discovered that his parents death wasn’t an accident and something has been discovered that could change Dex and Sloane’s relationship.
Now I love Sloane but I lost how many times in the 230 pages of this book that I wanted to slap him – hard! He seemed to be wanting to sabotage his relationship but of course that wasn’t the case, far from it.  But of course we have Ash, the wonderful Ash, Dex’s worst enemy – yeah, right – It’s more a case of love and hate, with love winning, but he does help Sloane to see the truth.

Now I’m going to have to issue a warning here ***don’t start this book until you have time to read it because it’s a case of “I’ve started so I’ll finish” scenario**** oh and heart attacks, yep, be prepared for some heart attacks as well.

This wonderful book is part of a Series and it can not be read as a stand alone. We started this wonderful story with Hell and High Water, 2 years ago and I hope this journey never ends.
