M/M Urban Fantasy
Dreamspinner Press | November 24, 2017
I’m not sure how to start this review, because I don’t want anyone to think that I’m criticizing this series. I adore the THIRDS. My past reviews are a testament to how special this crew is to me. In no way does what I’m about to talk about next mean that I’m giving up or quitting this series. I love Destructive Delta.
Now, I think it’s probably good that the focus of the story is changing. I know some may say that the series is going on too long, and there’s a part of me that even agrees with them. However, what I really think it needs is a renovation. If this series is going to keep going, it definitely needs to be shaken up. The formula of the series so far has been stellar. Obviously, since Dex is an extremely charismatic lead character with a group of friends and family who are the best supporting cast. The dynamic between the group is fantastic. It’s just become a little predictable.
That’s not to say I didn’t get hooked on all the action in Tried & True, because I always do. I got choked up with Dex, and prayed the book would end on a happy note, because Dex and Sloane deserve a perfect happily ever after. I wasn’t bored at all, I just don’t think I was quite as excited as I used to be. (Also, and please don’t shoot me, I skimmed the wedding. I’m not a fan of actual real life weddings, so reading one wasn’t really good for me.) I don’t want the THIRDS world to end, but maybe it could do with a good face lift?
I’m sure I’m not the only one, but I’m excited for what’s coming next. I know we aren’t going to lose the men I love, but hopefully we get more. I’m looking forward to more about Wolf. I want to read about Taylor and Angel. I’m ready for Austin and Zach to finally be together. I loved the little glimpse we got of Dom and West. So, maybe this one wasn’t my favorite, doesn’t matter because I have a feeling there’s good coming.
