Toryn Paine just found the man of his dreams in Mickey Thornton. He’s gentle and sweet, seductive and mysterious. Also just as mentally wrecked as he is. Besides the fact that he wears that body of his like a freaking Baltic God, he’s Toryn’s idea of perfection poured into skin and painted in ink. However just as things start getting good with Mickey, an unwanted blast from the past shows up and everything Toryn has ever wanted seems to be just out of reach.
He goes on the run to Kaiden and Holt’s lakefront cabin in the hopes of once again hiding from the man who nearly ruined him. But what fun is a secluded lake without someone to share it with? And will he ever be able to leave his past behind and start fresh with the most delicious man he’s ever seen?

My View:

This is the third book in the Invicta series. Retribution picks up immediately where Sanctuary, book 2, left off and continues with the story of Toryn and Mickey. You may find yourself needing a refresher though as 2 years have passed between these books being published. I had really enjoyed the first two books but I am declining to rate this book as I didn’t finish reading it.

I mentioned in my review of book 1 in the series that there were some editing issues and sadly they are even more prevalent in this latest release. Normally I can overlook the odd wrong or missing word but when it happens too frequently and keeps pulling me from the story it becomes an issue. For me the writing just didn’t flow and with the errors added on I found myself struggling to make progress. I made the decision at around the 40% mark to stop reading – maybe at a later date I will return to Toryn and Mickey’s story but for the moment Retribution is not a story I feel I can finish.
