“I love that Cochet can write smokin’ hot M/M sex scenes, but she can go the other side as well and write sweet, touching fatherly moments with his kids as well.”

I went through the THIRDS series in a frantic fury and then, when it was all done, I found myself lost. That’s the only bad thing about becoming obsessed with a series and binge reading them. When the end comes, you don’t really know what to do with yourself. Thankfully, there are at least two more books —one for Seb and Hudson and one last one for Dex and Sloane —before Cochet dives into the THIRDS universe novels, but she has treated readers with these Beyond the Books type reads.
These aren’t novellas or full-length stories by any means, but they are little snippets or what I like to call ‘Slices of Life’ stories that give you brief glimpse of a specific time in a character’s life that we don’t see in the regular books. A lot of these ones are usually written in the past, where the guys are considerably younger. My favorite thing about this book is the fact that we get more of Tony Maddock. Maddock is such a great guy and it’s even more evident in the pages of this book. We see a lot of him with baby Cael and Dex and stuff like this just warms my heart because in the regular books, we only see him as the tough sergeant and occasionally, that protective fatherly side of him emerges. Here, however, we see it in all its glory and I love that Cochet can write smokin’ hot M/M sex scenes, but she can go the other side as well and write sweet, touching fatherly moments with his kids as well.
So I think if you’re a rabid fan of this series like I am, this series one worth checking out. It’s not that long, but maybe, just maybe, it will tide you over until the next release.

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!
