Thick & Thin (THIRDS #8) by Charlie Cochet
Sequel to Smoke & Mirrors
This novella starts right after the ending of book 7,”Smoke and Mirrors”. To me, it kind of felt like an epilogue of the last book. All the things that were left wide open, get wrapped up in this little installment.
We get to know more about the changes that Dex went through and what gonna happen now that Dex and Sloane have decided to join TIN. It also shows us how the team responds to all of these changes and to the news that Sloane and Dex are about to be married.
This novella was informative and very sweet, to the point of even being a bit cheesy. Now there is nothing wrong with some cheesiness every now and then, but I have always enjoyed Sloane being a badass and he came off as a love-struck puppy in this book. I’m mostly ok with this because it’s an in-between novella, but I do hope we will get more of his old bad-assed self in the next books.
I’m also not sure about how I feel about Dex not being fully human anymore. I liked his character just fine the way he was…We will just have to see where this development will go.What I missed most though were the action and the fun. There wasn’t anything in this novella that made me laugh. Dex just wasn´t his funny self…
As an in-between novella, this was a nice read. I enjoyed it, just not as much as all the other books. I do hope we will get some more action and laughs and maybe Dekatria in the next books. I´m very curious about Seb and Hudson´s relationship. I have always loved Hudson, so I can´t wait for their story !!
