Sequel to Upside Down
Bronco’s Boys: Book Three
Club owner Harry Klinger has had his eye on Tristan Martin for months, but never had the nerve to approach him. He’s watched as Tristan dated Eddie and then reluctantly sat on the sidelines during the emotional breakup when Tristan discovered Eddie was dealing drugs. Now that Tristan seems to be healing, Harry hopes to get his chance.
When Eddie sends his men into Harry’s club to harass Tristan, Harry steps in to help. Tristan is reluctant at first since he admittedly has terrible taste in men, but Harry seems genuine, and Tristan can’t help but think Harry’s sexy as well and begins to hope for happiness for both of them.
Unfortunately, Eddie isn’t behaving rationally, sampling too much of his own product. With his determination to take Tristan back, it’ll take more than Harry’s help to keep Tristan safe as Eddie ratchets up his attempts to get what he wants.
Backward is the third book in Andrew Grey’s Bronco Boys series, which so far consists of Inside Out and Upside Down. The first two in the series involve former mercenaries going straight (so to speak). Backward is a bit different in that both main characters are rather normal. Well, except for that drug dealer ex-boyfriend thing.
Harry is Bull’s partner in Bronco club ownership. Tristan is part of the group of friends that hang out regularly at Bronco’s along with Zach and Jeremy, who found their life partners in books 1 and 2 respectively and Kevin, who I am assuming will find love in book 4. Harry has had his eye on Tristan for a while, apparently. Tristan, however, is gun-shy following his last disastrous relationship. Unfortunately, that last relationship isn’t done with him.
The overarching theme in the Bronco’s boys series is over-the-top themes. However, I respect that Grey has finally brought the conflict directly to the characters and onto the page. It isn’t pretty. It isn’t the Pollyanna world I have come to associate with many of Grey’s titles. Tristan deals head on with the baddy and his friends band together to handle the problem and keep him safe. The fact that he finds love along the way is a bonus.
I don’t know that this is a story that I needed. I was actually more interested in Kevin’s story (oh please say he will be with Perry… or that we will see Perry in an upcoming series… ). I did, however, fall a little in love with Tristan along the way. Harry I never really got. Harry I never really cared about.
If you are a fan of Andrew Grey, and I know many of you are, you won’t want to miss this installment in the Bronco’s Boys series.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
