Hatch Day Review | Thick & Thin

Thick & Thin.jpg

About the Book: In a matter of days, Dex has been kidnapped, tortured, killed, revived, become half Therian, offered the chance to become a spy, and accepted a proposal to marry his jaguar Therian boyfriend, Sloane Brodie. It’s been a lot to take in, and although Dex is still trying to wrap his head around everything that’s happened, he knows he has to move forward.

After the events of Smoke & Mirrors, Dex and Sloane find themselves in one of the most frightening situations of all: revealing the truth to their Destructive Delta family. When the dust settles, nothing will ever be the same, and it’s up to Dex to prove that in the face of change, the one thing that will always remain the same is family.

Thick & Thin was clearly an ‘in between’ book. Charlie Cochet says she initially planned for Thick & Thin to be a novella, but realized as she was writing that it contained information people should read before we move toward Destructive Delta’s new future.  Even though this book was a lot of filler information, without it’s own real plot, I can absolutely see why Charlie wants us all to read it.

Let’s go back a step to Smoke & Mirrors…  That book was a major game changer.  The events that unfolded in book 7 will alter the course of the THIRDS world forever.  Heavy stuff.  I loved Smoke & Mirrors, I love everything about Dexter J Daley, however even I could see there was some information we didn’t get.  Thick & Thin bridges the gap between Smoke & Mirrors and Darkest Hour Before Dawn.

So, not only do we get some more insight into what’s happening with Dex and Sloane, we also learn more about why they made certain decisions.  It’s very valuable information to have before moving on.  If you’re a THIRDS reader, don’t skip this one.

BUT, that’s not why I’ve given Thick & Thin four beautiful feathers.

One feather represents the adorable moments between Sloane and Dex.  Those two are soothing to my soul.  I love how Dex tames Sloane’s inner Broody Bear.  I love how Sloane protects and cherish’s my hunny bunny Dex.  They are an adorable couple and I’d read a story about them sleeping.

Another feather goes to the sweet scenes between Dex, Cael and Tony, because I love familial relationships and Dex’s family gets me right in the feels every single time.

The third feather goes to Ash and his waxing poetic about how much he loves his chirpy cheetah therian, Cael.  That entire scene had me grinning and giggling like a school girl.  I love that grouchy lion and how tender he gets with Dex’s baby brother.

And the final feather goes to the rest of Destructive Delta, because now no matter what gets tossed their way the fight to stay a family first.  I love each of them like they were my own.

In my heart they are.

Thank you to Dreamspinner Press for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.


About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.
