With bated breath I waited for Jaime Reese’s new The Men of Halfway House and she did not disappoint. A Chosen Man was everything I have come to love in a Reese book, especially with this series.
Wall, previously met in A Mended Man (and police partner to Aidan) was stoic and a man of few words. He hit all my buttons within his monosyllabic grunts and verbiage, but damn, was his character complex. His personification leapt off the pages as Ms. Reese crafted a man of few words, who worked hard, loved hard, and was fiercely loyal. His large demeanor was only second to his larger heart.
Dylan, new member of the halfway house, was hacker extraordinaire, and the antithesis to Wall’s quiet presence. Snarky, quick-witted, and colorful were just a few words to describe this force of nature. A man who desired to be someone’s chosen number one, and thank you Ms. Reese for placing Wall in his path.
Together the men tore up the sheets and steamed my e-reader. Action, comedic relief and of course our past favorites, Matt & Julian; A Chosen Man may have moved to the top of my list in this wonderful series. Or, better yet, all the books in this series are my favorite, as you cannot go wrong with a Jaime Reese creation- always worth waiting for.
