After being rescued by Ollie, Kade continues to suffer the aftermath of his ordeal, both physically and psychologically. Not knowing how else to clear his head, he pours his energy into Ollie—the love of his life—and Haven Investigations, but neither Ollie nor Kade can continue to ignore what they learned from their last case: Ollie’s brother, Nathan, might have betrayed Kade.
As they dig into Ollie’s past, secrets are revealed. Was Nathan’s death a suicide? Were Ollie’s parents much more than they seemed? Is someone out to kill Ollie, or is it Kade’s past coming back to haunt them again?
Amidst questions and uncertainties, one thing is clear: after everything they have been through together, Kade and Ollie have never been more in love and they want to get married. But first, they’ll have to deal with the continued threat of Kade’s past, the emotional wounds Kade fears are drowning him, and the possibility that everything Ollie believed about his family was a lie. A beautiful happily ever after awaits them—as long as they can survive long enough to make it to the altar.
Fabulous New Perspective!
This series has been one adventure after the next, with astounding revelations coming left and right, and the latest and greatest contains even more! Written from Kade’s perspective this time, it took me a while to get used to being in his head, but the way he looks at the world sheds an entirely new light on the lives he and Ollie are building together. This is most definitely NOT a standalone novel. There is so much background that any reader needs to start from the beginning or risk being hopelessly lost and disappointed with Model Exposure.
Building on the events of the previous three books, Kade and Oliver once again leap into the fray, despite all that they want to do is be together and run Haven Investigations. Unfortunately, there are many aspects to the story arc that are unresolved, and allowing them to do their own thing isn’t going to happen. The plot is just as convoluted as you would expect it to be at four books in, with subplots galore. The pacing is on point, with nothing dragging or being rushed. I especially appreciated that aspect in terms of the healing required from injuries. So many authors have characters just miraculously heal, but that is not the case here. Ollie’s injuries are affecting his daily life, and I appreciate the workarounds written into the book.
The character growth is far and away the largest in Model Exposure, and watching them work through their challenges was an emotional roller coaster. There is a lot of hurt/comfort here, and seeing the love for Oliver through Kade’s eyes really makes you appreciate the duo at another entire level.
The peripheral characters once again create the richness I’ve come to expect in this series, but do so without taking any of the focus off the main characters. You don’t get so caught up in them that you forget the purpose of the scene.
The revelations supplied in this book are, in a word, staggering! For all the ideas in my head to be completely off point is a rarity, and I ended up just going with the flow – but found myself turning the pages faster because I simply had to know. *grin*
While I loved the first three books, I’m rating this installment at five full stars for the sheer power it radiated. I cannot recommend this series high enough. Model Exposure is the apex, a brilliant end to an equally brilliant arc. I hope the author is going to expand from this couple to focus on other guards and delve into their lives, because I am not ready to see this series end!
