This series continues to impress! I know they can be read as stand alone book, but really you get the best impact reading them in order. The characters from the previous books still play a key role in the next books, so you not only get the development and context for those characters, but the introduction to the new characters the next book is about.
I loved Oz and Jake's story. They were so good together once they got past their initial hangups. And once we got the full details of Jake's past, and why he was on the run, it all made sense and I completely understood his hesitance to get involved with Oz, despite feeling the chemistry from their first meeting. Jake showed his kind, nurturing side more in this book - something we didn't see behind his standoffish behaviour in the earlier novels.
Oz was such an amazing and colourful character. His happy-go-lucky attitude rubbed off on those around him, and he couldn't help but befriend people with his friendly and outgoing demeanor. That wasn't to say he didn't have his downs or need a confidence boost here and there, but Jake was a huge part of bringing the real Oz to the surface through his love and unequivocal support. He saw Oz for who he truly was, rather than just being the pretty face.
The storyline played out well, and I loved how the book wrapped up. I desperately want there to be more in this series - specifically a book for Lucky! He needs a HEA after what he's been through in his life.
Definitely a series I would recommend, either as standalone reads, or in the series order as I've read them.
