Charlie Cochet on Against The Grain (THIRDS #5) ~ Cover Reveal, Excerpt, Rafflecopter Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Charlie Cochet for stopping by today.


Title: Against The Grain (THIRDS #5)

Author: Charlie Cochet

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Cover Artist: L.C. Chase

Genre: Gay Fiction, M/M Romance, Mystery, Paranormal, Science Fiction


As the fiercest Defense Agent at the THIRDS, Destructive Delta’s Ash Keeler is foul-mouthed and foul-tempered. But his hard-lined approach always yields results, evident by his recent infiltration of the Coalition. Thanks to Ash’s skills and the help of his team, they finally put an end to the murdering extremist group for good, though not before Ash takes a bullet to save teammate Cael Maddock. As a result, Ash’s secrets start to surface, and he can no longer ignore what’s in his heart.

Cael Maddock is no stranger to heartache. As a Recon Agent for Destructive Delta, he has successfully maneuvered through the urban jungle that is New York City, picking up his own scars along the way. Yet nothing he’s ever faced has been more of a challenge than the heart of Ash Keeler, his supposedly straight teammate. Being in love isn’t the only danger he and Ash face as wounds reopen and new secrets emerge, forcing them to question old loyalties.


Ash had called the doctor while Sloane was at his therapy appointment for his leg, and they’d been in luck. The guy was home and invited them over for a chat.

“Ash, how wonderful to see you.” He held his hand out, and Ash reluctantly shook it. With a bright smile, Shultzon turned to Dex. “Agent Daley, what an absolute pleasure to meet you. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about you.”

Dex shook the man’s hand, his jaw clenched so tight Ash was afraid he might break something. “Thank you.”

“Please, come in.”

Shultzon motioned for them to enter, and Dex did. Ash followed. The doctor led them into a neat and elegant living room and showed them over to a large couch.

“Can I get you both some coffee?”

Before Ash could answer, Dex answered for them. “No, thank you. This won’t take long.”

Daley sporting an attitude and refusing coffee? That was weird. Dex was usually all smiles and charm, even when dealing with someone he didn’t trust, especially when dealing with someone he didn’t trust. He knew how to get under their skin, gather intel without them knowing what he was doing. Ash was always able to spot the intensity behind the pale blue eyes, despite the smile. It wasn’t the same smile Dex had for Sloane, his family, or even his friends. Ash had seen it enough to know the difference. Dex was a complicated man with many faces. He was an expert at playing oblivious and a master of evasive tactics. Ash was starting to see through the class clown façade hiding a potentially dangerous man.

  1. I love the cover but honestly it could have been plain black with just the title & author listed & I would have bought it 🙂

  2. I love the cover, the uniform for Thirds is so great, and I like it incorporated into the cover. I love this series, and can’t wait to read Ash and Cael’s story. After getting to know them in the first four, it will be nice for their story to be revealed.

  3. I want to reach through those bars and peel that Thirds uniform off of Ash’s body!

  4. Congratulations Charlie on the newest release. The cover is great and I love the uniform. Have to agree with the above though, just peel it off. 😉 Thanks for a chance in the giveaway.
