I can only keep repeating myself. This is a great series ! This book highlights the utter destruction and devastation that is war - we can have no idea of the battles during and after, but can only wish they were unnecessary. Both in the world wide sense and those closer to home. Until us humans learn to live through the heart and think through a loving brain, too many men will continue to put their lives and their very sanity on the line to do their best to keep the rest of us as safe as possible to live full lives. Thank you to those who go to horrific wars for the rest of us - and to those who support them and love them as they journey back to themselves afterwards.
Book four in the Men from Halfway House see Detective Aiden Calloway and Jessie Vega get together. Holy smoke batman, I cried in this book, its was a long journey for these two men and started with a bang that I didn't expect. Who knew hiding under all that snark from Aiden Calloway was a heart of gold just beating in time to the Jessie Vega tune. This story was very well told, touched on many difficult issues and just made Ms. Reece my new go to author. With returning main characters in Matt and Julian and Sam, Cole and Ty, even Hunter and Cam, and a cameo mention of Dray and Vann this book dealt with everything almost including the kitchen sink. Everything about this book made me fall in love with all the guys from the series all over again. So glad I've read them all. I'm ready with Kleenex and chocolate for Vann and Dray, think I'll need them.
This series just keeps getting better. I have been waiting for Aiden and Jessie's story and wow was it all I was hoping for and more. This book was full of mystery, intrigue, drama, hope, love and faith. And then there was a little bit of Cole thrown in just so you wouldn't get dragged down too far into a pit of misery. On to the next book
This one stands out above all the others in the series for me. Can't tell you how many times I felt like Jamie had been checking out my story, or listening in on some of my encounters with clients. Jamie has a knack for reading the story inside a person's storyline that reveals not just understanding, but a well of compassion and even affection and respect. Jamie, you've pulled out from inside me responses of which I thought myself incapable. Wonder-filled and joyous stuff! Please keep it going. Bart W, Oz
