Synopsis

A THIRDS Novella

THIRDS agent Dexter J. Daley can’t wait to marry his fiancĂ©, Team Leader Sloane Brodie, but first he’s looking forward to celebrating his bachelor party—which he intends to be a shenanigans-free evening of getting his groove on with family and friends.

Of course events don’t work out as planned, but for Dex that’s nothing new. One thing is for sure, dodging drug dealers and hired thugs amid booze, dancing—and even a bear costume—will guarantee it’s a night Dex will never forget. Now he just needs to survive all the fun.

Enjoy this bonus story from the THIRDS universe. These events occur between Darkest Hour Before Dawn and Tried & True in the series timeline. While reading this story would enhance your experience of the THIRDS series, it is not essential to read before Tried & True.

 

Debra’s Review

This novella is a fun story to keep you occupied for a while as you wait for Tried & True to come out later this year. With everything about to change, it’s great seeing the team and their friends get together to just have some fun and let loose at Dex’s bachelor party. That’s the intent anyway. Of course things don’t go quite as planned, but there is plenty of dancing, wisecracking, drinking and shenanigans before things kind of fall apart. This is Dex’s bachelor party, so of course Sloane isn’t invited, as much as Dex wants him to be there. Just so Sloane wouldn’t be all alone Dex has made a date for him to have dinner with Tony.

That’s the basic premise of the book. It’s short and sweet and mostly fun. It doesn’t advance the overall plotline in any major way so you won’t be lost if you don’t read it before the next book, but it does give us a bit of a taste of what the guys will be up against. Austen isn’t pulling any punches about how things will be for Dex and Sloane in TIN and not long after that conversation things get interesting. I’m not sure if I’m in the minority, but I am incredibly intrigued by Wolf and enjoy when he slinks out of the shadows. You never know if he’s going to be friend or foe.

Just because Sloane’s not invited to the party doesn’t mean he and Dex don’t share any page time together. There’s plenty of both sweet and steamy page time for these two. There’s also the Sloane-Tony get together. Although they’ve known each other for so long their dynamic is changing just a bit and Sloane’s not really sure how to deal with it.

There’s a little bit of everything that’s enjoyable about the series in this little treat. If you’re a fan, you know you’re going to want to read this (and if you haven’t started this series, what are you waiting for). Who would want to pass up a night out with the whole gang that includes a drunk Hudson, Dex pushing Austen and Zachary together with uncomfortable dance floor moves, gummy bears big and small, a sexy stripper, plenty of mayhem and a bit of murder? In other words, business as usual.
