Darkest Hour Before The Dawn (THIRDS Book 9) By Charlie Cochet

Dreamspinner Presents


Sequel to Thick & Thin
THIRDS: Book Nine
THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn are as much in love now as they were nearly seven years ago when a tragic event on the job destroyed their relationship. The two drift together only to be pulled apart time and time again. When Hudson draws the interest of dangerous enemies, both within and outside the organization, Seb wants nothing more than to protect the man who still means everything to him.
As life-and-death events, an uncertain future, and startling truths draw Hudson and Seb to each other yet again, they must make a choice: trust their love and take strength from what they share, or lose what matters most… for good this time.


I think this has become my favorite book in the series. I just liked how Seb and Hudson couldn’t be together but couldn’t move on. Both men knew that no one else would be what they had with each other but with so many issues to deal with they just seemed to dance around each other.
The story has several threads running through it, all involving Seb and/or Hudson, with Hudson seeming to have the most focus on him. Hudson’s relationship with his coworker Nina, then there is Hudson’s relationship with Seb’s parents. Hudson trying to date someone else, and much more. When Seb and Hudson finally get together their time in bed is sweet, hot and explosive.

The story grabs you from the start and keeps you engrossed and reading to the last page, as you want to see what happens next. A surprise revelation will have all the loyal followers of the series waiting impatiently for the next book to come out to see where the story goes from here.

5 of 5 stars!
