I’ve read most of RJ Nolan books and with this, all of the LA Metro series. Even though the book is well written and edited, I didn’t like it as much as the previous two in the series. The characters were well developed and the issues of veterans and body image were handled with respect and knowledge. However, the characters angst and issues seemed to drag for too long and then, suddenly solved in a short time. In my opinion, the main characters chemistry didn’t work so well as the story didn’t flow smoothly.
It was good to see the appearance (though minimal) of some of the characters from the previous books of the series. Also, the introduction of the Great Dane dog as a secondary (that sometimes felt like main) character gives a break to the story angst and introduces some humour and cuteness (and I’m not a dog person!). RJ Nolan’s love for Great Danes transpires in this novel.
Overall, 4 stars. I liked this book and would recommend it but, even though this novel stands by itself, I suggest to read the series in order. I’ll definitely read a new instalment of the series.
