Jody is big, broody and intimidating to be around. You’d never guess that in his free time, he volunteers down at the children’s center and has a soft spot for his little sister, Kady.
Just when we thought he could never redeem himself, for a mistake that he made between his brother Kingsley and his boyfriend, Morgan; we get to see a whole other side to Jody Mars that makes us think twice.
Cameron is a nurse at the hospital where Morgan had surgery; that’s how he met this big group of tattoo artists.
One of them caught his eye. Unfortunately, Cameron is in a situation and see’s no way out. Not ever.
What would a guy like Jody want with a small, makeup wearing twink with his own secrets? He wouldn’t…
Or would he?
If one thing is clear from every story in my arsenal; I’ll take you on an emotional ride before I give you the happiest of happily ever after’s. It might take a while, but we always get there.
Emotional wedding vows, included, in this one. 🙂
There are some triggers here that might make some of you uncomfortable. Strong language, domestic abuse and sexual situations.
Yay! I was so excited to see another installment in this series! Jody is a very compelling character whom we met in books 1 and 2 and who seemed like kind of a jerk, but his heart was in a good place.
Well, we find out more about what makes him tick and I have to say that his story is really, really sad. Sadder than Kingsley and Kayson’s. But, he had those boys as his “brothers” and he built himself a new family. Now he’s paying it forward and extending that family to include Cameron and a new kid, Jase.
First, I wanted to give a huge basket of kudos to the author – the editing and grammar and spelling seems to have improved 100% in this book. Woot!
Second, I also wanted to hand out more kudos on how she portrayed Cameron. He never felt like a victim – per se – but she explained just how easy it was for him to fall into unhealthy patterns with his abusive partner.
While I didn’t think the ex always acted in ways that fit his profile – rich, powerful, lawyer – he clearly isn’t “typical” or he wouldn’t be acting the way he did toward Cameron in the first place.
In any case, this was a bit more slow burn than the other books – but it’s still a short story so you don’t have long to wait!
I loved the side piece with Jase and am really looking to his story next!
Highly recommended to fans of the author, the series and fans of hurt/comfort/bad boy romance. Though these can be read as stand alones I recommend reading them in order.
