Series: The Naked Trilogy #3
The thrilling conclusion to the Naked Trilogy. He came into my life. He took me off guard, consumed me. Claimed me. But there is more to Jax North than meets the eye. There is more to this man than the way he makes me tremble, sigh, and even smile when I didn’t believe I still could smile. And as it turns out the two of us together are far more than fire and passion. The two of us together threaten to expose a secret about Jax, and our families, that not even we know. A secret that someone doesn’t want exposed. A secret that someone will do anything to hide.
This story is one that is so full of twists and turns that i’m never quite sure what i’m going to get as this final installment takes us on it’s journey. We’ve left off in a complicated space with Jax and Emma. They were brought together by less than savory motives, but they seem to continue to have forces outside of them trying to tear them apart. They are no closer to finding out what happened to Hunter and who was behind it. They don’t know the motivations behind what Chance and Randall are doing, and we know that there’s going to be massive amounts of loss before this book is done.
We pick things back up during the Harvest, when Echo (the long time caretaker of the castle) has gone missing, without a trace. Emma has received a letter that discloses that Hunter is actually her half brother, meaning that he’s not Jax’s full brother but his half brother as well, so there’s even more complexity in their family back story.
We see Jill and Brody continuing to go after Emma, and we see that Chance wants her back home at all costs. This gives the opportunity of success for romance barely a fighting chance. The good thing is that Jax and Emma are true to themselves and true to each other and are willing to be open minded as they see what’s constantly thrown at them.
There’s darkness in this book. We see struggles with addiction, and what that turns into as a result of festering jealousy and hatred. We see excessive measures being taken in the form of kidnapping and where it leads is a very perplexing place. We’re challenged to understand why, who’s behind it and why the drop off location. Whomever is behind it isn’t who we thought.
The struggle is real here and what comes of it is a story of proving out what family truly is. That it’s not necessarily blood since they are the ones who will let you down, but those who chose to be in your life for the right motivations. Secrets on both sides of the coin are revealed and Chance clearly knows more about things than he let on.
Savage continues to play a great role and that’s something that i really love about all series that include a touch of Walker Security. He’s the man that i’ve wanted to see have his own story and a happy ending for a lONG time and based on what i’ve read in the closing notes by Ms Renee Jones here, i’m going to get my wish next week! book 1 of his series i think comes out on December 17th!
I also love that we got to see more of Grayson and Eric – they were favorites of mine from their own series and i’m glad to see that Grayson seems to be getting more to his story as well. So i’m going to sit tight knowing that while Jax and Emma have their closure, we get to see more of the characters that we love the most. on that note, enjoy!
