The Psy/Changeling world has undergone a staggering transformation and now stands at a crossroads. The Trinity Accord promises a new era of cooperation between disparate races and groups. It is a beacon of hope held together by many hands: old enemies, new allies, and wary loners. But a century of distrust and suspicion can't be so easily forgotten and threatens to shatter Trinity from within at any moment.

I loved that we were able to catch up with all the mates & the kids. Oh and we have pupcubs, no I will not tell you how many or the sex of them, you will just have to read the story for yourself. This book sets up the next chapter of the series perfectly and I can't wait to see where this goes.

Bowen Knight has come back from the dead. But there's a ticking time bomb in his head: a chip implanted to block telepathic interference that could fail at any moment - taking his brain along with it. With no time to waste, he should be back on land helping the Human Alliance. Instead, he's at the bottom of the ocean, consumed with an enigmatic changeling... Kaia Luna may have traded in science for being a chef, but she won't hide the facts of Bo's condition from him or herself. She's suffered too much loss in her life to fall prey to the charm of a human who is a dead man walking.

I don't know how Ms. SIngh does it but these stories just keep getting better. I loved Bowen & hated that he was going through the pain due to the break down of the chip in his head. I would have liked a little more suffering from the final injection. I did figure out who some of the bad guys were but not all. We don't find out what Kaia's other form is until the end but if you pay attention to her & how she acts, you will have it figured out. I loved her. She had her own demons but she was also strong & when she wants something, she goes get it. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

The man on Locke's arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new "it" model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell us the men met on the set of Locke's upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that "they only have eyes for each other." This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.

It was weird not seeing Logan & Tate not married. This was a perfect ending, except for Brenda. I wished that portion would have been taken out of the book or at the very least, putting that her in her place. God I hated her!!! That epilogue brought me to tears!!!

3.5 stars. Overall I did enjoy the story. We have two broken men, one more so then the other, who find love with each other & what that comes the healing of their souls and they learn that the things that went on in there past was not of their doing. There were three things about this story that stopped me from rating this higher. The first being that Jordan's hatred of Ash was so over the top you would have thought that Ash had done him wrong. They never even hooked up. Yes Ash pursued him but nothing ever happened. It would have been one thing if Jordan was one of Ash's prior conquests but that never happened. Yes he was a man whore but that hatred was not deserved. I could see him trying to warn Drew off by telling him what he had heard about him but the level of animosity was just too much IMO. The second thing was after Drew & Ash finally come together, they split up right away & Drew runs off & gets himself a girlfriend, we do find out that he never slept with her; seriously? And the final thing was what happens towards the end, who did Drew think he was? He was going to take on these two thugs, who were only kids really, all by himself. What an idiot. I loved Nana, she was just a lovely soul. I will be reading the next book in the series, even though I didn't like Jordan at all.

Maybe if it was longer, I would have liked it better. Or maybe it was the narrator, I didn't like him at all. He had the same voice for all the characters so you really didn't know who was talking. Plus he mispronounced words and that took away from the story.

OMG I loved this so much & can't wait for the next book in the series. Ace & Colton were so hot together & I want more. I loved the secondary characters & can't wait for everyone to find their significant others.

Greg Boudreaux made this story so much better. I love how he brings the characters to life. Even knowing who the "players" are, nothing jumped out at me during this second reading that says "hey look at me I'm the bad guy".

Ace Locke is Hollywood's hottest action hero. Women across the globe fling their panties in his direction, but Ace isn't interested in those - he's more of a boxer briefs kind of guy. Specifically, those of the nearly naked male model on a billboard he drives past every day. Though he recently made headlines for his public coming out, Ace is wary about pursuing a relationship, fearing what the court of public opinion will do to his career. But there's something in the model's expression that intrigues him and has him wondering what if?

Overall I really enjoyed these two. At times they acted like a couple of 12 yr olds but they were fun. The only thing that left me from rating this a 5 star review was Ace. He had come out about a year before the story starts but still acts like he is in the closet. If he was in the closet & starting a relationship w/Dylan it would have been different but he wasn't. These two were scorching hot together & the scene at the hotel, holy hell that was so hot!!! If book two wouldn't have been out I would have been so mad because the ending was left on a little bit of a cliffhanger as Ace has to make a decision in a very short time. Off to the next.

When I read the book I gave it 3.5 stars. I did like this easy read. The whole arsonist issue was kind of lame and you don't really get an idea why they did what they did. I could actually see the mountains in my minds eye as seen through their eyes. I will be continuing on with this series.

With the amazing Greg Boudreaux narrating this book, I have to raise my review to 4 stars.

I loved this book. I wish there would be more as I would love watching them travel and maybe hunting ghosts together. Also maybe he isn’t as asexual as he thinks he is and something could unfold in that department. I loved that his family didn’t jump all over him looking for a handout.
