Charlie Cochet is an exceptional author. She is always bringing some amazing book to the table and this is one that I really enjoyed. I like that Charlie took this book and made into a short story with snippets of everyone’s life that we as readers have wondered about and made it a reality. I liked being able to read about how Dex and Cael became a family. I liked being able to read about Dex’s mom and dad and maybe was able to get some insight on why they was killed. I also enjoyed being able to read about how some of the thirds couples met, first dates, thanksgiving and Christmas’s together and even times that was not the most pleasant if memories for some of them.

Charlie has an amazing way of capturing the readers attention and holding it till the very end of the book. She makes you want to read the next book in her serieses and making the reading wish the next book in a series will hurry up and come out. That is the mark of a true author and that is what Charlie is and has proved that with each book in the Thirds series. I am impatiently waiting for thirds book 7 to be out. I cannot wait to see what Charlie has in store for us all once again.

I will say that I absolutely adored these little insights to the characters outside of the novels. It was fun to read about special times in each person’s life in little snippets since they wouldn’t have fit into the normal books.
The only reason it isn’t a full five star rating to me was that I do enjoy the full stories where I can really sink into story and I couldn’t to that so much since each story was pretty short.
All in all, I really enjoyed the stories and can’t wait for more from Charlie Cochet.

I really liked the concept of this story.  I, however, have not read this series, so it was somewhat of a challenge to truly understand what was going on and what the fans were requesting.  However, despite that fact, I really liked how this book was laid out.

Cochet was able to almost bring me up to speed within these snippets.  I felt that I was getting to know the characters as I was reading these snapshots of the book.

The writing was great and getting to see “behind the scenes” of the scenes was so fun and a great way to intrigue me in to this story line.

This authors definitely gained a fan by writing these too – I wish more authors would do that.

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!

Currently residing in Central Florida, Charlie is at the beck and call of a rascally Doxiepoo bent on world domination. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found reading, drawing, or watching movies. She runs on coffee, thrives on music, and loves to hear from readers.
