This is book number four in this series and I loved ❤ ever single one of them !!

This time it’s Jessie and Aiden’s turn…and I’ve been waiting for their story anxiously. 😀

                              

Jessie was Hunter’s assistant (book 2) and Aiden the grouchy detective is Hunters best friend and Ty’s brother (book 3)


These two have been sniffing around each other for ages, so the time has finally come for them to get together.
The hardest part for me to read in this book was the reason they finally do come together. There is a major tragedy that happens and I was balling my eyes out within the first pages !!

Jessie was such a strong and sweet character, my heart broke for him on more than one occasion, but he really earned my respect with his strength and positivity !!

Aiden was a harder nut to crack. He was Jessie’s rock, but he has his own demons to fight and Aiden’s demons won’t give up so easily. Even though Aiden is Mr. tough detective, Jessie is the real hero in this book to me.

He never gave up on Aiden and his love for the man was admirable !!

I really enjoyed this book, but I have to agree with my friend Susan on this one. I think Jessie’s tragedy and suffering was a bit brushed over. It seemed like he got the short end of the stick on this one. Everything is mostly about Aiden and his struggles. What happened to him was awful, but I just didn’t understand why he wouldn’t talk to Jessie. Jessie bared his freaking soul to him and I just wanted Aiden to wake up and smell the coffee !!

I really loved this one, but I would have loved to read more about Jessie and what he was going through.

Now this book deals with some heavy topics, such as (sexual) abuse, torture, and violence, but it also has a lot of love and fun times. I loved Jessie’s obsession with balls !!!! The steam level in this one is a bit lower than in the previous one, but that is to be expected. 

There was still some hotness though….don’t worry. 😛

I will leave my review with an Aidenism.  😀

Now I will stay and wait (im)patiently for book 5!  😉 😀
