Sequel to Darkest Hour Before Dawn
When THIRDS agent Dexter J. Daley met Team Leader Sloane Brodie, he couldn’t have imagined how slamming into his new partner—literally—would shake both their worlds. Now four years later, they’ve faced dangers, fought battles both personal and professional… and fallen deeply in love. Now their big moment is finally in sight, and they’re ready to stand up together and make it official. Unfortunately, as the countdown to their big day begins, an enemy declares war on the THIRDS….
With their family in danger, Dex and Sloane are put to the test on how far into darkness they’ll walk to save those they love. As secrets are unearthed, a deadly betrayal is revealed, and Dex and Sloane must call on their Destructive Delta family for one last hurrah to put an end to the secret organization responsible for so much devastation.
Dex and Sloane will have plenty of bullets to dodge on the way to the altar, but with happiness within their grasp, they are determined to get there come hell or high water…. (less)
Well damn. These guys blew in like a hurricane, upended my life and rendered me speechless and emotionally drained when they left! Writing this review is bittersweet. I absolutely adore Dex, Sloane and the gang, it’s tough coming to terms with the fact that this is the last book but Charlie Cochet gave Destructive Delta a hell of a send-off.
If you have never read this series you are so late… and so lucky! You don’t have to go through the torture of biting your finger nails to oblivion, waiting for next release in this series. This story cannot be read alone so please take my word: If you’re looking for a super fun read that will make you laugh, cry, cuss up a storm and cry again: Read. This. Series. As for the rest of you who are Thirds fanatics lets dish on this book.
Here we are, the moment of truth, the big day for Dex and Sloan is on the horizon and right on its heels there’s danger and shocking twists and turns most of us never saw coming. Evil never takes a day off and true to form Dex and Sloane (with help from a few unlikely sources) must do everything in their power to protect their family at all costs.
There were quite a few twists that were spine-tingling and oh so good! I won’t spoil it for you but be prepared to be bowled over when Wolf and Sparks significant connection is revealed. If you haven’t guessed the ultimate bad guy, some of you are in for the shock of your lives and of course, the series ends with a satisfying bang worthy of our beloved team.
While I’m sad this leg of our journey is over for Destructive Delta, I am very excited and eager to embark on Cochet’s new journey with her Tin series spin-off. I have no doubt Tin will be chock full of bigger surprises and danger. Just how deep does the rabbit hole go? How high up is the corruption? I for one am dying to find out!
