Another great installment of Rhett and Kaden!!! Just like the last book, this one took me for a spin! There is a lot going on and secrets coming out of everywhere at times, but again the men rely upon each other to get through situations I hope no one else would have to live through (and there is quite a few of them). Part of me feels the same as they voice at one point about wanting things to not be so difficult, but the other part of me can’t wait to see what happens next.
Pops and Annabelle annoyed me a bit in this one because as usual they do whatever they feel is right and everyone else has to deal with it… But I suppose so do Rhett and Kaden so I’ll forgive the genetic stubbornness.
I absolutely can’t wait for the next book in this series as we are left with a bit of a cliff hanger.
This third installment of the series was well planned and  wonderfully written, maintaining the character growth and development that were set in motion during the first two books. Rhett and Kaden have really grown on me and the trials this couple manages to hold onto their relationship through makes it worth reading all on it’s own.
Added to these amazing main characters is a twisting, action-packed plot that grabs hold of your soul and attempts to wrench it right out of your chest. The equally alluring and developed cast of supporting characters does their part to add turmoil and depth to the book and they are just as easy to love (or in some cases want to slap silly) as the two main characters.
The storylines in this series just keep getting better and better and I honestly couldn’t put this one down until I’d finished it. A few minor grammar and spelling mistakes are honestly all that kept this book from being a full 5 stars and I look forward to more from this author in the future.

Rhett shook his head. With a deep breath, he logged onto the employee portal and typed Pop’s flight number into the tracking system. Rhett blinked at the screen.

“What the fuck?” Kaden whispered, peering over his shoulder.

Without answering his husband – because he couldn’t – Rhett dialed Jasper. One ring. Two rings. Please answer.

“Hey, Rhett,” he answered after the third ring. “Isn’t it early there?”

“About six a.m. Annabelle called, though, and I told her I’d try to get some information to help her relax,” Rhett said.

Silence. “About your grandfather.” Statement, not a question.

“She call you, too?”

“No, I’m not the person she goes to for comfort,” he answered with an unfamiliar edge to his voice that Rhett didn’t have time to explore. “But I’m waiting for him, too.”

Right… “Would you run a track on Trixie for me, please?”

“Can’t you?”

“Yeah, but I’d appreciate you confirming what I found. I think there might be a glitch on my end.” I hope.

Jasper typed on the other end. “Um, can you confirm the plane number?”

Rhett swallowed hard and his heart raced. “Why?”


He blew out a breath and recited the plane’s registered number.

More typing. “And he left on Friday morning at four-thirty?”

“Yes, why? What are you seeing?”

An unmeasurable moment of silence preceded Jasper’s sharp inhale. “Nothing.”

“What the hell do you mean, ‘nothing’?”

“After Lou cleared him for takeoff we have nothing. No tracking. No communication.”

Nothing. The word cleared every other thought from Rhett’s head and sucked the moisture from his mouth. If he could count on one thing with his grandfather, it was his adherence to safety. To get nothing meant his navigation system was disabled, which meant…

“I’m sorry, man.” Jasper’s voice yanked him from his thoughts. “Want me to call the FAA or Annabelle?”

“Definitely not Annabelle. Yes, I’m going to be an asshole and wait until we have some answers before talking to her.”

“No arguments there,” Jasper said. “FAA?”

Rhett leaned on Kaden, who had appeared at his side somewhere around the time he lost all the air from his lungs. “Let me ask the FBI. If they don’t know anything, we’ll start a full investigation. Can you send me a screen shot of the flight?”

“Um,” Jasper started, “sure, but why would the FBI track flights? I know he used to run missions for them, but he can’t anymore.”

“He and Stuart are friends, and I have to exhaust all possibilities before involving the FAA.”

More silence. “You know best.”

No, I don’t, but we’ll pretend.

“Keep me updated.”

“Will do. Thanks, Jasper.”
