My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have reached the point in this series where I need resolution for the ongoing issue started in the first book. The good news is that’s going to be in the next book the bad news is that doesn’t come out until next year.
Nothing get’s resolved in this one as far as the brothers being able to stop the clock on the ticking bomb so to say, but Nate and Audrey are finally able to put their history to past so to speak and try for a future. Audrey is the daughter of the Dr that had experimented on all the brothers their whole lives. She even became part of an experiment herself when her mother forced her to be friends with Nate many years ago. But that friendship grew to love and both of them made huge sacrifices in what they hoped would save the other. Since neither knew what the other had done Nate felt betrayed by Audrey and has been holding a very big grudge against her until he finally confronts her and finds out the truth.
As I stated at the beginning we really don’t learn anything new in this one except that Jory is alive and I don’t think that’s a spoiler as the next book is his. There was plenty of action and the initial scene where Nate and Audrey meet again for the first time was intense but so much of this book felt like a rehash on the same stuff from the other books. I’m glad that Nate didn’t have to sacrifice himself which he was totally willing to do to save his brothers and happy that he and Audrey finally were able to get the happiness they deserved and that she finally stood up to her whacked out mother and chose love over family loyalty but I guess I was expecting a little more. I’m all in for the 4th and final book in the series and hope that the 4 brothers finally get what they’ve always wanted – a happy family.
