Blurb:Fish Out of Water: Book Three
A tomcat, a psychopath, and a psychic walk into the desert to rescue the men they love…. Can everybody make it out with their skin intact?
PI Jackson Rivers and Defense Attorney Ellery Cramer have barely recovered from last November, when stopping a serial killer nearly destroyed Jackson in both body and spirit.
But their previous investigation poked a new danger with a stick, forcing Jackson and Ellery to leave town so they can meet the snake in its den.
Jackson Rivers grew up with the mean streets as a classroom and he learned a long time ago not to give a damn about his own life. But he gets a whole new education when the enemy takes Ellery. The man who pulled his shattered pieces from darkness and stitched them back together again is in trouble, and Jackson’s only chance to save him rests in the hands of fragile allies he barely knows.
It’s going to take a little bit of luck to get these Few Good Fish out alive!
I have enjoyed this series, so much! It has just the right mix of suspense, romance, humor, and banter.
A Few Good Fish picks up a couple months, or so, after the end of book 2. Jackson, who has been shot, stabbed, beat all to hell all through this series is almost back on his game. Almost. The bad guy wasn't finished gunning for him and Ellery, though, so you know they both will be sent through the gauntlet in this book.
And boy are they ever! I tell you what, I'm glad I live a boring life. The sheer amount of near-death experiences that Ellery, and especially Jackson survive is mind-boggling. I may have had to suspend my disbelief just a touch, but I'm good with that. I like my suspense stories fast paced and action packed, and this book and series deliver that in spades.
I really loved watching Jackson and Ellery's relationship really hit its stride, too, as Ellery helped Jackson break down his walls. They're not alone, though, and - just like the other books in this series - family (both blood and chosen) plays a crucial role.
In fact, I only have a couple niggles with the story and they are of the personal preference variety and in no way take away from the story at large.
This series has been a joy to read and I'm glad Amy Lane decided to give romantic-suspense a shot! I definitely recommend this series.
