Summary:

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.

Story Review:

I think I am rating this one lower because of the narration, but I did not connect with the relationship between Tristan and Harry. Both Tristan and Harry were bit players in the previous two books. I never really made a connection to either man so this story already started at a disadvantage. After listening to the book, I did not really understand the relationship between Tristan and Harry at all. I could see the attraction, but I never followed the progression to love. Especially since the love seemed to come out of the blue. The chemistry between these men felt forced just so that this series could continue.

As far as the plot, I enjoyed it. I love a good tension filled suspense and this one had it all. There were creepy drug dealers and a mystery over who the bad cop was. It was interesting and kept me on my toes as I followed along with the unfolding action. This part of the story was what upped my rating because I did not care for the romance aspect at all.

I am assuming that Kevin will be getting his story next. Though I am not really sure who his partner will be, I have my suspicions and I enjoyed the first two books enough that I will probably pick up Kevin’s story when it is released.

Narration Review:

John Solo did an OK job on this narration. For the most part his voice was clear and easy to listen to. He did a good job with the emotions. But I had a hard time with his portrayal of Tristan. To me, Tristan came across as stupid and that made this story hard to connect with.
