I preferred Red Dog before she became a kickass, stone-cold shooter. For that matter, I preferred Travis before HE became a kickass, stone-cold shooter. But the action of this story moves along briskly. Red Dog and Travis are good together and manage some healing. And Smith and his "Cupcake" were an amusing secondary couple.
I did like this book. Probably not quite as much as all the others. I do miss Travis as he was in the first books. It's a little hard to believe someone as compassionate, sensitive and giving as Travis can turn into a cold blooded killer at the drop of a hat. I did enjoy the chapters about C.Smith Rydell. He doesn't seem quite as "love 'em and leave 'em" as the chop-shop boys were (B4 they met their soul mates!) I think these books would make a killer weekly series. But it definitely COULD NOT be shown on network TV!
This is a great series that holds your interest. I love the way each book builds on the characters you met in the book before.
If possible read the books in the order they were written. Each book stands on its own. But once you've read one your going to want to read the rest and it spoils things if you already know what's going to happen.
