Shock & Awe ~ Review by Brandilyn

Shock & Awe (Sidewinder, #1)Shock & Awe by Abigail Roux

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After barely surviving a shootout in New Orleans, Sidewinder medic Kelly Abbott has to suffer through a month of recovery before he can return home to Colorado. He’s not surprised when fellow Sidewinder Nick O’Flaherty stays with him in New Orleans. Nor is he surprised when Nick travels home with him to help him get back on his feet—after all, years on the same Marine Force Recon team bonded the men in ways that only bleeding for a brother can. He’s very surprised, though, when Nick humors his moment of curiosity and kisses him.

Nick knows all of Kelly’s quirks and caprices, so the kiss was a low-risk move on his part . . . or so he thought. But what should’ve been a simple moment unleashes a flood of confusing emotions and urges that neither man is prepared to address.

Now, Kelly and Nick must figure out what they mean to each other—friends and brothers in arms, or something even deeper?—before the past can come back to ruin their tenuous future.

Speechless… I really wanted to write a review of this book, I really really did… but I have no clue what to say? I abso-freakin-lutely loved this book. Technically it is a new series, but it is tightly woven into the C&R universe, which you know I love.

Abi Roux has given depth to characters we had only seen as minor players until the 7th book of C&R. Then she (view spoiler). It makes you weep, it makes you think, it makes you want the next book!!!

Kelly and Nick, much like all the Sidewinder boys, have been closer that brothers for going on 20 years. What happens when one of them wakes up and wants to see if there is something more?
