This was taut, suspenseful, dark and sexy AF, and I feared for Levi’s and Dom’s relationship the entire book. It showed a different side to their relationship as they coped with their breakup. The journey was so worth it in the end. There was angst and pain, and mistakes were made, but their experiences helped them realize what really mattered, what was worth fighting for, and why the other man was everything in the world and the one for them. There was also joy and romance that paid off in the end.
I enjoyed everything about this, from all the plot twists to all the emotional ups and downs. This book eliminated one particular suspect but introduced a new one, and keeps you guessing as always. This entire series is just the best m/m romantic suspense I’ve ever read, while Levi is the most compelling law enforcement hero I’ve ever encountered in m/m.
The Seven of Spades has met his match and shows exactly what kind of man and hero Levi is. And I can’t wait for Levi to bring him down. I’m excited for the fifth and final book in the series, though I wish the series didn’t have to end.
