Series: Deep Six Book 4
POV: 3rd person alternating
This author and series was recommended to me by a bookish friend, and I am so happy she did. Granted this is a series the you need to read the whole way through, so start with book one because you will miss key relationship elements between this couple if you do not read it. It is not a standalone because of this reason, but the events that play out are focused on only this couple. I adore this group of guys and their relationship that they have. They have that natural instinct that goes with working together as long as they have, and they have their new goal of finding the Santa Cristina treasure. The story opens up with the trials of the crew of the Santa Cristina itself, and you get more of that story, but then we dive right into Wolf and Chrissy. These two have been dancing around each other for a while. There was an “incident” that occurred that has pushed a barrier between them that Wolf isn’t sure he will ever be able to climb. I adored his devotion to Chrissy even when he was being an idiot about things. There were some missteps between them that caused the slight rift the they have, but you finally get the whole story that had been teased in the previous book. This story goes along with the authors day break-down which I really enjoy. It is a quick timeline but it works well with the way the author rights. I really enjoyed this story and I wasn’t expecting the baddie to be who it ended up being. I read a LOT of romantic suspense and I love then I can’t figure out the story by the end. You do get a lot of dialogue from the next couple which is also typical of this author throughout this series, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
