Review: "Devour" (Unbreakable Bonds, #4) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Devour - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

I’ve been looking forward to my sweet little Ian’s story ever since the first book in this series, "Shiver". And man, am I happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed. Not in the least.

 

 

I’m glad that there was no kind of relationship angst or any other self-doubts between Ian and Harris' attraction towards each other. They (FINALLY!) got together pretty early in the story, and let’s be real: anything else would have felt forced because these two have been pining for each other over the course of three books at this point.

 

So with Ian and Harris’ romance (again: FINALLY!!!) being dealt with from the get-go, the authors were able to focus on the overarching Jagger storyline and bring it to a closure. And they did a pretty good job IMO, with a great and suspenseful final showdown (I will forever remember and cherish this series for those HILARIOUS code names alone).

 

So yeah, what can I say?

 

 

 

~ 5 STARS ~

Book Review: Noble Hops by Layla Reyne (Trouble Brewing #3)
Noble Hops (Trouble Brewing, #3)Noble Hops by Layla Reyne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The final chapter of Trouble Brewing is everything I could have hoped for!

I have to admit, I have a soft spot for Layla Reyne's Agents Irish and Whiskey, and this spin off series with Dominic Price and Cameron Byrne. I kinda heart the whole universe she created as well as her writing prowess. The world she's created is believable, the people flawed and wonderful, the action almost as good as one of my beloved Marvel movies and her wordsmithing - concise and slick.

In the culmination of the three book arc, Dominic Price and Cameron Byrne have finally stopped hiding from everyone. They're living together and in love, working at building a life, when it all comes crashing down around them. The threat against Dominic comes to fruition. His father is dead and he's left to deal with the gangster who's been threatening everyone and everything he loves. And Nic isn't going down without a fight. But if there's one thing fighting Irish Cameron Byrne knows how to do, it's fight for those he loves, and he'll be damned if Nic is going this alone.

But will a ghost from Nic's past prove to be too much for Cameron and Nic to take? Will they be able to hold on to everything - and everyone - they hold dear? And when Cameron's specialized skill set of kidnap and rescue becomes needed, will Nic trust his lover to do what he's trained in while Nic does what he's meant to - defend the innocent against those intent on breaking the law?

This was everything I wanted in the final chapter of Nic and Cam's story and it definitely left me with the warm fuzzies. I can't wait to see what Layla comes up with next!

Stay Hidden by Paul Doiron
Stay Hidden - Paul Doiron

After reading Stay Hidden I've finally caught up to the complete series, that is until July 2nd of 2019, and after reading straight thru the series, I think I can go 5 months until I read another Mike Bowditch book.

 

In Stay Hidden, we find Mike Bowditch no longer a Warden, but a Warden Investigator, a Warden that investigates hunting accidents incidents (In law enforcement there are no longer accidents, ie car crashes) and sitting alone in his office being a 4 month rookie without the qualifications to investigate any incidents or murders while everyone else is at a shooting investigation.

 

Mike receives a phone call from an island off Maine about a death that could be hunting incident and is told by his superior to go investigate with another warden, that has the flu, and a Maine State Police Detective.  The detective is there to take over if the hunting incident turns to homicide.

 

Mike, being Mike has never played well with others so when the warden leaves with the body and the detective leaves for a court appearance Mike finds himself alone, with that chip on his shoulder that he must solve it before law enforcement returns.

 

Maquoit Island is run by the harbormaster, a mean tough man that will not allow his authority, which he really has none be usurped, even by the elected constable. Most of the people that live there year-round are lobstermen and feel they are outlaws kindred to the old west where the law is dealt out by the people themselves with no outside involvement.

 

With only a few hours before his superiors come to take over the investigation and Mike already in trouble with his Captain for the way he has run his first investigation, Mike works every angle to solve the crime.  Can he do it?

 

Paul Dorion has written a neat series and shows he is really capable of writing a best selling series.  I really suggest this series to anyone that enjoys law enforcement books and books about outdoor investigations.

Knife Creek by Paul Doiron
Knife Creek - Paul Doiron

I've gotten through 8 of the 9 books Doiron has written to date in the Mike Bowditch series.  Knife Creek is not the best book in the series but definitely not the worst I've read.

 

Mike is on temporary assignment in an area that has been recently been overtaken by feral pigs. While stalking out a group of pigs, called sounders Mike and his girlfriend Stacey come across a sow rooting in the mud.  Stacey takes the sow down but another sow attacks her and that sow is taken down after mildly goring Stacey.  Shortly after that, the 250-pound male is taken out.  While investigating they find what the pigs had been rooting in the mud at.  The corpse of a week old baby.

 

Mike, being the man of intrigue that he starts knocking on doors with the pretense of looking for more wild pigs.  Then he comes to THE house.  Two women and one is familiar but he can't put the face to what is in the back of his mind.

 

This starts out the 8th book of the series and it is pretty good.  Doiron really is good when it comes to putting down 'pen to paper' but he can be caught dragging a little every now and then.  Knife Creek is the start of a new way of life for Warden Mike Bowditch and tomorrow I start the 9th in his series, Stay Hidden.

 

I rate this a solid 3 stars

Widowmaker by Paul Doiron
Widowmaker: A Novel (Mike Bowditch Mysteries) - Paul Doiron

I think Paul Doiron has it down now.  This is his 7th book of his Mike Bowditch Series and now each book is getting better and better.  It appears Mike is growing up at the age of 28.

 

The book starts with a Mike Bowditch pulling over a suspicious woman that keeps asking Mike to take him back to his residence so they can talk.  Naturally, this being a book and also the curiosity of what she might want wins MIke over to the idea of taking her home, but Mike is very cautious. The woman explains that her son is a young man that just got out of prison on a couple of crimes of a sexual nature after being caught being 18 and sleeping with his underage girlfriend from an affluent family. She also tells Mike that her son and mike are step-brothers. Queue the soap opera organ music. She asks Warden Mike Bowditch too help find his long lost brother, which Mike reluctantly does.

 

The book follows Mike going to the area that the woman, Amber Langston lives and the resort she works at, named Widowmaker.  Between a near death arrest, he has to make at the beginning to this book and a near-death experience his girlfriend Stacey has, the book follows Mike through his investigation of his missing brother.

 

I still suggest that Paul Doiron's Mike Bowditch series is worth the read.  The past couple of books are books hard to put down.
