Open Case by Mickie B. Ashling


Seth Wilder and Bryce McFarland deal with the aftermath of Owen Lightfoot’s destructive rampage. Once again, the insurance company denies the life insurance benefit despite the compelling evidence regarding the underlying cause of Mark’s death. However, they acknowledge their former employee’s complicity in the multiple crimes that have blindsided Seth and Bryce. They settle to keep their name out of the news, offering the couple a million dollars apiece, which they accept.

Owen learns of the big payoff and is determined to get his cut. Just when Bryce and Seth think it is all over, Owen reappears, and what follows tests the very limits of their endurance. Through the help of friends and relatives, Seth and Bryce find the strength to keep their relationship intact while seeking out the best way to stop Owen once and for all.

Seth and Bryce are trying to recover from the storm who is Owen. While their relationship is stronger than ever, there are still questions about their future that need to be answered.

The insurance company is very interested in making this whole fiasco go away and in doing so, it enrages Owen, who has been on the run since the last story.

While I think that Seth and Bryce have a great relationship, they have kind of wonky chemistry. It's not bad, just a different kind of chemistry.

Owen is problematic at best. Malicious, dangerous, and terribly unbalanced. He believes that since he is on the run and figures out that Seth and Bryce were paid by the insurance company, he becomes even more unbalanced.

This was a good resolution to this issue. I like how the story concludes. Seth and Bryce are stronger than ever and know that there is really nothing that can break them apart.

MICKIE B. ASHLING is the pseudonym of a multifaceted woman who is a product of her upbringing in multiple cultures, having lived in Japan, the Philippines, Spain, and the Middle East. Fluent in three languages, she’s a citizen of the world and an interesting mixture of East and West. A little bit of this and a lot of that have brought a unique touch to her literary voice she could never learn from textbooks.

By the time Mickie discovered her talent for writing, real life got in the way, and the business of raising four sons took priority. With the advent of e-publishing—and the inevitable emptying nest—dreams of becoming a published writer were resurrected and she’s never looked back.

She stumbled into the world of men who love men in 2002 and continues to draw inspiration from their ongoing struggle to find equality and happiness in this oftentimes skewed and intolerant world. Her award-winning novels have been called “gut-wrenching, daring, and thought provoking.” She admits to being an angst queen and making her men work damn hard for their happy endings.
