Review – Slippery when Wet Bk4 – I’d Die For You –Jude Mason

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Back Of The Book.

Snake Thompson is out of Corcoran and looking for revenge. He meets and falls for Abel, a lusty blond guy who winds up quitting his job and tagging along. Can the two of them find the truth and clear Snake's name, or will drugs and money send them both to the grave?

 

 

“Nice,” the man said in a jovial tone. “Here I offer to stay open so you can drink more beer and all you can do is growl at me.” He continued loading the glass washer and clearing minor debris off the work surface behind the well polished bar.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, cry me a river,” Snake teased enjoying the man’s easy banter. It had been too long since he’d had the chance to flirt.
“You going to continue ragging on me or would you rather give me a hand so we can get out of here? I do have beer at my place.” Abel came around from behind the bar, this time stopping in front of Snake and placing his hands on his hips. He thrust his middle toward Snake, as if consciously drawing attention to the bulge in the front of his jeans.
Snake’s gaze automatically lowered to that bulge and his mouth went dry. The man’s cock was outlined, the pale blue material stretched almost to the tearing point by its length and girth. Snake’s mouth filled with saliva and it took all of his willpower to keep his hands from reaching out.

Review

The fourth and final book in the Slippery When Wet series and I am loving it – for a whole lot of reasons. Firstly I have followed this series from book one and I was not only pleased by the fact that Ms. Mason and Ms. Byrnes was quick off the mark in giving them to us – so no waiting a whole year for anther book, they also kept the story line tight – it wasn’t all over the place, you basically knew what you were getting by about book two.

In I’D DIE FOR YOU - Snake and Abel are great, they were  easy, nothing seems to phase them – there were a few angsty moment that was dealt with in typical male bravado way and life went on.

This book is a  really short read and a little over half the book deals with Snake and Abel getting alot of their itch out of their system and you know me – always one to highlight the smut, I WAS LOVING IT. It was down right, loud, dirty and a whole lot of it.

The story itself played out over a relatively short period and literally went according to plan for Snake. The only deviation from getting the guy who set him up is meeting Abel along the way. Lucky for him Abel was not opposed to pulling up stakes and tagging along. The journey and subsequent events were uneventful to say the least and I kinda went along with the flow of the book .

By the time the action started it over before I could get a handle on it. I can’t say I was disappointed in that, as  I knew what was going to happen – so it worked.

My only let down was probably expecting to hear more about Felix – that evil thing from Corcoran prison – I so wanted him to get his comeuppance ( Is that the blood thirsty devil in me – so be it) I wanted him to pay and feel like he’s paying.

Bottom Line

An easy read that doesn’t feel like the end to a series, but does show Ms. Mason doing what she does best – gelling men together in a setting that is easy on the imagination while using language that is meant to bring out a wide range of emotion in the reader. It ties in with the other three books in the series – yet fell short at meeting out justice to some much deserved characters. I am going to miss the array of men Ms. Mason and Ms Byrnes introduces us to every few months, but all goods things must come to an end and it was a pleasure to share in the ride of this series with these ladies.

EH,

So, the dreaded Felix wasn't dealt with to your satisfaction. Hmm, we may have to do something about that. Interesting, you picked up on this, and to be really honest, I thought of him as a minor character. You're right though, he's the one who got all four of our guys into trouble. He needs to be horsewhipped or dragged behind Snake's bike for a mile to two.

A wonderful review. Thank you. I love it when a reader finds something I miss. Very thought provoking.

Hugs

Hey Jude

It's the devil in me, I wanted to see him get it and get it good.
I know he was a bit part support cast, but his influence was so grave that I was looking for him to be neatly and nicely tied up... (Literally)

Horsewhipped and dragged is too good for him....

I am going to miss this series...

congrats on the release...
