Life has not always been kind to Shannon Dupree. On the outside he’s carefree and fun loving, but when it comes to his past he’s evasive and secretive. Running away from emotionally bereft parents at just fifteen, Shannon escapes life with them but steps into the waiting arms of the devil.
Rory Landers is a rising star at the Bureau. His personal life, however, is nothing to write home about. He hopes to take his limited relationship with Frank Moore to the next level when they finally solve the Langford murder case, but that doesn’t turn out as planned. On the plus side, he meets free-spirited college senior Shannon Dupree.
Rand Davis finds himself fortysomething and single when his partner of more than a decade is unfaithful. Taking over the Cold Case Squad frees up some of his time, and Rand welcomes newfound friendships within the Langford-Moore family circle. He thinks relationships are not in the cards for him until he meets an agent with an attitude and a vivacious blond that make him want so much more.
Past, present, pain, and suffering collide, ushering in the possibility of a life and love worth fighting for. Although their personalities couldn't be more different, their three hearts beat the same. Shannon, Rory, and Rand learn the definition of love, commitment, and strength and if they allow themselves, the trio will find all that and more—in each other.
TM Smith’s follow-up to Survivor, Lover was a wonderful addition to the trilogy. Shannon, Rory, and Rand were electric not only in the sexual department, but everyday life.
The veil of secrecy following the main characters from their persona of book one came to a forefront. Now that as readers, we know who all the players are, the story was able to take off and drive itself through Ms. Smith’s careful pen.
I adored Shannon and his survival attitude. Rand and Rory were stoic men and brought forth a stability to the story. Together, the three men united and were stronger in the end.
The drama was well written and the story flowed. I’m loving this series and can’t wait for the next book. Ms. Smith’s style of writing draws the reader in and captivates. I couldn’t get enough!
