Thick & Thin by Charlie Cochet

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.

Even though this was a very short book, it was jammed packed with story. Things are changing, everything is changing, and we all know that not everyone likes change. At times throughout this entire series I have mentioned that there is sometimes not enough dialogue and too much detail, and this book, at times, has that again, but I overlook that because everything else is sooo good. Dex and Sloane just make my heart melt, and Ash is fast becoming a favorite of mine. This little teaser book was great and I can’t wait for the next installment to see what happens next.

Characters: Well written

Religious: No

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
Dex is starting to realize that there is a lot of adjustment that needs to be done now that he has different abilities. He is trying to make everyone around him happy, but also trying to hide his abilities from his teammates too – he's nervous how they will react.

Then you have Sloane. He loves Dex with all that he is. Without hesitation, he follows Dex down what they both know to be a rabbit hole. The twist is that the team has to hear that Dex and Sloane are jumping ship accidentally – or at least without intention to tell them when it all came crashing out.

This was a short book and, while it was packed with a lot, there are still a lot of unanswered questions. The chemistry between Dex and Sloane is still hot and I can't wait to see what will come next.

Huh? I was so excited for this story after the revelation at the end of book seven but I kinda thought my Kindle was broken when I hit the end of this very short story without anything actually really happening.

This series has become an autobuy for me, so I will admit that I didn’t read the blurb or check the page count before requesting it. However, this really should have been part of book seven or marketed obviously as a stop-gap 7.5. There was clarification of the revelation/choice made at the end of book seven, but the series doesn’t really move forward here.

I’ve been a fan from the start, but I’m growing a little bit weary of Dex and Sloane. Each of the last few books has brought hints of new couples (I seriously want to read Seb’s book!) but keeps revisiting the same characters. Book nine will really need to impress me with something exciting and new if I’m going to remain loyal to a series that I absolutely loved for the first few books.

I know that fans like me will blindly autobuy this book, but it can definitely be skipped. I am really hoping that the next story delivers and actually introduces something new into the series. The author has opened up many new possibilities for the THIRDS books and I’m hoping for a return to the magical combination of humour, violence, suspense, and sex that drew me to this series in the beginning.

Bringing you stories with heroes, humor, and heart.

Charlie Cochet is an author by day and artist by night. Always quick to succumb to the whispers of her wayward muse, no star is out of reach when following her passion. From adventurous agents and sexy shifters, to society gentlemen and hardboiled detectives, there’s bound to be plenty of mischief for her heroes to find themselves in, and plenty of romance, too!
