| Book Review |
I’m just going to address this with every single installment: I swear the sexiness jumps off the covers of the books in this serial, and I love them. They’re so damn hot, and that lanky frame just makes me salivate. I had planned to read the first two back to back, but alas. The intrusion of life happened. So, we’re back in Mosely with Jericho, and man did I miss him. I forgot just how laconic and sarcastic he is, and in these books that are fairly serious, it’s those parts of his personality that make me chuckle. Because there is really not a lot to smile about in this small, dysfunctional town. I love all the characters in this story, and there are a few surprises in this one that I didn’t see coming, one of which has inspired a theory that hasn’t been confirmed yet. But I’m anxious to read the final two installments to see if I’m right. The sexual tension between Jericho and Wade is taken up a notch. (Who knew that was even possible?) Their attraction is sizzling, and I love every scene they have together. But I’ll just say – the fact that Wade is always one step ahead of Jericho gets my goat, because I’m so far gone for Jericho, and since he’s so far gone for Wade (even though he’s fighting it,) I want him to have him! But Wade is going to have to take a few steps away from that dark side for that to happen. But Wade is still a mystery to us, and I think there’s a lot we don’t know, including Jericho. I like that they’re well matched. Wade may be slyer than Jericho (by Jericho’s own admission,) but Jericho is good at improvising and finds ways to hold his own. I think the suspense part of this series is so well done, and things are coming out at a molasses pace that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. I’m loving this serial, and Embers was a solid installment. I can’t wait to dive into the next installment!
