The Sixth Sense: Book Three
When FBI agent Jerry Lee Parker wakes from a coma after a murderous attack on his life, he has no memory of his immediate past. In the blink of an eye, he has gone from having a nearly photographic memory to recalling nothing of the last six months of his life, including his partner and lover, John Flynn. While Lee tries to reboot his past and reconnect with John, there are events at play around him he doesn’t understand. John is keeping secrets from him, secrets that could get them both killed.
Matters come to a head when Lee is hounded to turn over a mysterious artifact, of which he has no knowledge. The two men wind up in a fight for their lives as they risk everything to keep the powerful relic out of the hands of a ruthless killer. In order to protect those he loves, however, John may be forced to make a deal with the devil.
This is book three in a series I’ve followed since the first book was published in 2010 – and loved ever since – and I’d strongly advise against reading it as a standalone. Aside from missing out on two really great books, you’d also miss half the story since it’s virtually impossible to incorporate all the plot twists and turns I loved so much in the first two books.
Plus, getting into this series at this point you’d also miss out on half the joy of seeing hermit crab Jerry out of his shell, more outspoken than he’s ever been, almost vulnerable at times and yet perfectly able to put up a fight, armed with his sharp wit and dry humor.
God, Jerry. I fell for him all over again in this book, same as Flynn did. Their relationship really took a big step forward; while I almost despaired of them in most of Walk a Mile, I totally believed in their future as a couple this time. Not to mention that the sex between them was insanely hot, thanks to a little hint of a kinky twist that surprised me, yet in hindsight made a lot of sense.
Another major reason why I enjoy this series so much is Jerry’s deliciously authentic 1st Person POV narrative voice. It kept true from book one all the way through the twists and turns of the plot while STILL mirroring the changes Jerry’s character went through, which is amazing, as far as I’m concerned. AND he managed to keep both his inclination to ramble and his dry humor, which I found particularly endearing.
The secret hero of this book was a surprise too, a pleasant one, I must add. Talk about a force to recon with– that lady almost stole the show away from the boys.
This book answered many questions for me, although not all of them, drat it. It did not end on a cliffhanger (THANK YOU!) but there were enough loose ends fluttering around to keep me waiting impatiently for the next book. Which might be a good thing in general but is one of the reasons why I normally don’t read series. Sigh.
This series started out great and it just keeps getting better and better. I’m biting my fingernails waiting for the next (and hopefully final) instalment.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
