THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn are as much in love now as they were nearly seven years ago when a tragic event on the job destroyed their relationship. The two drift together only to be pulled apart time and time again. When Hudson draws the interest of dangerous enemies, both within and outside the organization, Seb wants nothing more than to protect the man who still means everything to him.

As life and death events, an uncertain future, and startling truths draw Hudson and Seb to each other yet again, they must make a choice: trust their love and take strength from what they share, or lose what matters most for good this time.
 

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.25
Story: 4.5

You know, after nine books in this series, there's really not a lot I can say for a review. You're either reading this series and loving it as much as me or not...LOL. 

This is NOT a series that you can just jump in and read. You need to read the whole series together. Every book feeds into the story of the next one. And even though this book is about a different main couple...Seb and Hudson...you still need to have read the whole series to understand what's going on. 

I loved that this story though is focused on Seb and Hudson. The bulk of their backstory happened before the series started. They're marked mates...something that's a rarity just because marked mates are looked down upon in this society. But even though they have this incredible bond to one another, they haven't been together the entire series because of a mission that went wrong. Guilt pulled them apart and the bittersweetness of the two of them has been present throughout the entire series. 

As a result, I couldn't wait for this book. It didn't disappoint. And even more...it brought up some interesting plot twists that I can't wait to see how they play out. Wow...so much I didn't see coming, but I loved it!
