Wahoo, last book in the awesome series that introduced me to Rebecca Zanetti. Awww, last book in the series. 😦
I’ve been absolutely itching to get my hands on this book since I read book 3 and realized I had to wait an ENTIRE YEAR to read this one. But let me say it was sooooo worth the wait. Jory was everything I wanted and more.
Piper and Jory were a great pairing. I liked how Piper was so suspicious and gradually got introduced to the nightmare that was Jory’s entire world as he grew up. And Jory, while he might not have the same drive for action/adventure that the other Gray brothers had, he definitely had the brains in the family.
The driving concern (the chips in their backs) definitely kept this story moving. The book starts with only days left before the chips explode and it’s a race to see whether Piper can find a way to recode / remove the chips in time. Toward the end, even KNOWING it’s a romance and there had to be a HEA ending, I began to doubt whether she’d actually solve the problem with Jory’s chip. It’s not exactly a spoiler to say she does, and thank heavens. Whew.
We get to see the other brothers that I fell in love with over the course of the series AND learn that they’re not the only “gray” brothers. It was nice to see a younger crop come along. I don’t necessarily see a series in the younger crowd, though it’s possible. It definitely wouldn’t be a rehash of this one though.
All in all, this was an incredibly satisfying conclusion to a phenomenal action/adventure/romance series from Ms. Zanetti.
