“This is easily my favorite series I’ve discovered this year.”
~ Under the Covers

Yup. Still obsessed. RACK & RUIN is another book for Dex and Sloane but this book opens up a lot of possibilities for the other guys to get together. But before I get into that, the romance between Dex and Sloane continues to build. They are far from perfect but the both of them are trying very hard to make this thing between them work. This is where I think the angst increases from the last book. We get a lot of details from Sloane’s past, which is probably my favorite part of the book. The twists and surprises are gut wrenching and now we know why Sloane acts the way he is. We also see his bond with Ash and how their friendship started in the first place. This is one of my favorite things of this book. Cochet creates such a good balance of brotherhood and romance in this book that you can’t help but love Dex and Sloane, but all the other guys.

Speaking of the other guys, as I mentioned before, things have progressed between a lot of the other guys. Calvin and Hobbs have some shit to deal with but I think the worst of the bunch is poor Ash and Cael. These two have a long way to go if they want to end up together. There’s even mention of another couple, Seb and Hudson, that I’m looking forward to seeing if Cochet will try to make amends between the two and give them a happily ever after. Obviously, I want a HEA for all of them and that’s a rare thing for me to love every character in the series.

Probably one of them that I love but doesn’t get enough attention is Maddock, Dex and Cael’s father. He’s a strong force in the series but doesn’t get enough love I don’t think. That’s why I had to give him a mention here, because without him, I don’t think Dex or Cael would be what they are today.

In terms of the THIRDS storyline, I think this is the best book of the series. So much happens and at the end, it’s a very rewarding experience. The way the guys work together in this book is touching and you can really tell that they love each other and have each other’s back. This reminds me a lot of Sidewinder series from Abigail Roux. So if you like that brotherly camaraderie between characters, you’re going to want to try this series. This is easily my favorite series I’ve discovered this year.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
