Against the Grain - Charlie Cochet

This is the 5th book in the THIRDS acclaimed series.  I recommend reading the books in order for full understanding of the story and enjoyment for the reader.  This book can be read as a standalone, but I caution the inside jokes and mystery taking place makes more sense reading as the author intended.


The long awaited story for Ash and Cael comes with several surprises.  The THIRDS team has been through a lot lately, and they are struggling at this point.  Cael wants to hope that his friendship with Ash can sustain the hits they keep taking, but he is not so sure.


Ash is still in denial until a tragedy wakes him up to the real possibility he could lose Cael before he ever really has him.  All our favorite agents are present and accounted for, making this a fun and exciting read.


Each installment in this series has me thinking the author cannot shock me anymore.  Well, I have been told.  She makes it happen in the best way possible and I enjoyed every single page.  I cannot wait for the next book in the THIRDS series!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
