In a matter of days, Dex has been kidnapped, tortured, killed, revived, become half Therian, offered the chance to become a spy, and accepted a proposal to marry his jaguar Therian boyfriend, Sloane Brodie. It’s been a lot to take in, and although Dex is still trying to wrap his head around everything that’s happened, he knows he has to move forward.
After the events of Smoke & Mirrors, Dex and Sloane find themselves in one of the most frightening situations of all: revealing the truth to their Destructive Delta family. When the dust settles, nothing will ever be the same, and it’s up to Dex to prove that in the face of change, the one thing that will always remain the same is family.
Well…well…well… sigh THIRDS! I said it all, right?! There are no more words needed but if this is the first time hearing about this awsomeness of series called THIRDS lemme give you some introduction.
The storyline is placed in a world, where Therians, are common knowledge. Therians are shifters. They are very strong. But the shifting back let them be vulnerable and weak. Therian-Human Intelligence, Recon, Defense, Squadron -or- the aka THIRDS. And this series is about them…
Thick & Thin is book 8 of the series, the sequel to Smoke and Mirrors.
Dex was kidnaped, died and came back as half Therian. Tony, his father, got shot in his chest but he’s recovering. Dex fears every moment of telling his family that he and Sloan are going to join TIN, the Therian secret intelligence. He wasn’t wrong, Cael wants to kill Sloan after he finds out that his brother, Dex died and now, Cael is going to lose him. Tony is outraged, he doesn’t want to hear a word about it. Seems that the mention of Dex and Sloan getting married eases the tension, just a bit.
While Dex talks to his family, Sloan does the same with his family, Ash. Well, he wanted to tell all, but Ash just opens up to him about his feelings, scary feelings, toward Cael. Even though they are together, the love Ash feels toward the cheetah Therian makes him feel vulnerable. Sloan let the other man talk, but he accidentally let it slip out about his and Dex’s engagement. I’m not going to tell you about Ash’s reaction! No Sir…but oh man!!! Well, I see Ash differently now wink, wink.
Dex plans to tell everything to the team, but things, as always with Dex, don’t happen smoothly. They get called for an emergency situation, where Dex is forced to show his fangs and claws, literally. The team is shocked, and more shocked when they find out that they join Tin and they are more shocked that Dex and Sloan are getting married. Hobbs, the sweet Therian tiger, reacts as Dex feared.
Through finding out the name of Letty’s Dimple’s, facing his family and team, they got a message, quite an original one, from Wolf, to keep Hudson alive.
I can’t wait for the next of the series, Darkest Hour Before Dawn, where, finally, we’ll get Seb and Hudson’s story. At the end of Thick & Thin, we get to read the first chapter of the next book.
