As a brother-in-law of one of the Powertools crew and a soon-to-be sister-in-law of one of the Hot Rods crew, Gavyn and Amber are somewhat thrown together by virtue of the fact that they are the only unattached people in attendance at the joint weddings Amber has been planning for the Hot Rods crew, and the pull is only enflamed further by their instant and intense attraction to each other. Unfortunately Gavyn is still struggling with sobriety and the uncertainties regarding the direction of their relationship only test him further, while Amber is dealing with insecurities of her own. The psychological complexity of this story was so great, really delving into Gavyn’s addiction and its implications for a fledging relationship. Despite the rest of the series containing lots of ménage action, this book is strictly about a traditional relationship between Gavyn and Amber (no group extracurriculars here), and I thought that separateness from the rest of the group was part of what made this story interesting. Great story and I’m looking forward to the last book in the series, Long Time Coming!
