I really liked the last installment of the BOIs. I'm so sad to see it end. What kept this from being a 5 was that even though reference was made to Joe being exhausted, he still seemed to recover if not all his strength & stamina, certainly far more than I found believable so quickly. Within a week of being rescued he was running around in the snow. It just seemed too quick for me.
Having said that, I absolutely loved his vulnerability. And thought Stephanie was a great heroine.
Gerard is an auto-buy for me, and this book is the perfect reason why. Strong, believable characters, fast-paced action, great camaraderie, and a hot romance to boot? Count me in. A lovely end to the series.
