Home from their unexpected deployment, the former members of Marine Force Recon team Sidewinder rejoin their loved ones and try to pick up the pieces of the lives they were forced to leave behind. Ty Grady comes home to Zane Garrett, only to find that everything around him has changed—even the men he went to war with. He barely has time to adjust before his brother, Deuce, asks Ty to be his best man. But that isn’t all Deuce asks Ty to do, and Ty must call for backup to deal with the business issues of Deuce’s future father-in-law.
Nick O’Flaherty and Kelly Abbott join Ty and Zane at the wedding on an island in Scotland, thinking they’re there to assuage Deuce’s paranoia. But when bodies start dropping and boats start sinking, the four men get more involved with the festivities than they’d ever planned to.
With the clock ticking and the killer just as stuck on the isolated island as they are, Ty and Zane must navigate a veritable minefield of family, friends, and foes to stop the whole island from being destroyed.
"I just mean..." Ty held a pent-up breath as he met Zane's eyes again. Zane's face was so sincere, looking at Ty in that way that always made Ty feel warm and loved. "I mean that all the experiences I've ever heard of in life...I want to have them with you."
Yeah,i'm addicted to this,because this story is full of surprises:it makes you laugh,it makes you smile ,it makes you mad and ,of course,it makes you wish you could shake some sense into someone.But,the most important part?It was abso-freaking-lutely hilarious and amazing.I swear that i've tried reading this book without laughing too much,but i couldn't.And there were times when i couldn't believe what i was reading,because when it comes to Ty and Zane ..Well,in every single book they surprised me with their actions,with everything they did and how they handled every situation.But,my god,every single thing they did it was serious and dangerous,and yet i knew that somehow they'll transform that into something hilarious.And that's why i love them so much.
In this book,Ty and Zane finally got reunited after Ty was forced to go back to the Marines.But that's not the whole story.Ty receives a call from his brother,Deuce,asking him to be his best man at his wedding,also to ask him a huge favor:they needed someone to protect them and Deuce's daughter,Amelia.Plus,Deuce wants someone from the Sidewind to go with Ty and Zane.But nobody imagined what could happen.What the odds are for a normal wedding,mainly when Ty and Zane are ivolved?
All those times when Nick thought he'll die in Scotland:
1.Nick found his feet and gave the island his own once-over, looking grim. “I’m going to die in Scotland,” he muttered.
2.“I’m going to die in Scotland,” Nick said under his breath. “In a kilt.”
Ty shook his head. “You’re not going to die in Scotland.”
3.They sat and stared at it as Deuce and Livi clambered out of the cart. Kelly leaned forward to peer up at the structure, then turned to Nick grimly. “You’re going to die in Scotland.”
Nick just nodded, his mouth gaping open.
4."Is this shit poisonous? Am I going to die?” Nick fumbled on the bedside table for his water bottle, gulped it down and wiped at his face frantically with a pillow.
5.“The theory of anyone who didn’t believe in curses was rogue waves. Ninety, sometimes a hundred-feet high or more, just sweeping in out of the blue and taking everything on the island with it.”
“Nick,” Ty said a little more forcefully. “You’re not going to die in Scotland.”
6.Nick glanced at Zane, then stared out at the cliffs again. “Nobody’s safe on this island as long we’re out of touch with the mainland. Everyone’s going to die in Scotland if we don’t stop this.”
7."Be careful! Think like Nick!”
Ty groaned. “Think like Nick. I’m going to fucking die in Scotland.”
Once again i am a little speechles and still trying to process everything.This book was a roller coaster of crazy events,from the moment until the end of book.I can say that i'm a little shocked,because once again Ty and Zane manage to turn an usual day into something crazy,even if it wasn't their faults.But at least in this book i got the chance to read and learn more about Nick and Ty's relationship,but i got to admit that the whole thing ''I'm going to day in Scotland'',made me laugh so much.I mean,c'mon,Nick!He was repeating that like a crazy person and ,yeah,it was funny like hell.Everything that involves Ty,Zane,Nick and Kelly is hilarious and that would never change.
When Deuce asked Ty to bring a Marine with him he told him that that guy could bring a date,so Nick brought Kelly...And it was something-That was the part that shocked me the most ,because i never thought about Nick and Kelly like that!Not at all.But,me likes that.And very much.
Zane sighed. “I was so hoping this would be a normal vacation.”
Ty smacked him on the side of the head. “Don’t use bad words.”
Despite all the drama of what was happening,something was happening between Ty and Nick.I admit that i never thought too much about the friendship between them,because i never got the chance to read more about it,but now that i've got the chance to get a glimpse of that,i hated what was happening and how they were fighting.It was obvsious that they were best friends and that needed to stay like that forever.That fight between them made me really sad and i wanted to punch someone,but now i can say that i understand everything and i gotta agree with Nick.Ty was always too stubborn for his own good and that's something that will never change.And once again the secrets threaten to destroy a good friendship between two stubborn and loyal people.
“I love you, Nick,” Kelly whispered. “No matter what those words meant before, we know what they mean now. They’re ours now. Just ours.”
Right now i'm glad that i got the chance to learn more about Nick and Kelly.Two amazing characters whom where always there for Ty ,helping him and respecting him,even if Ty kept so many secrets.Strange or not,i always believed that there was more to Nick and Kelly and i hoped that i will get the chance to read more about them,about who they were and what happened to both of them.And now that i got a piece i want more!
Nick,well,i could say he is like Ty.Always alert and ready for something bad to happen.Very loyal and stubborn,but also funny.The fun part?The cranky attitude and the way he reacts when he is teased by someone,especially by Ty.In this book,Nick's past haunts him ,making his life harder and pushing him to take some decisions.His dad,the one who beated him when he was little ,is dying and the only one who can save him is Nick.Going in Scotland with Ty,Zane and Kelly,gives Nick a reason to think better about what he should do.
Kelly?Still don't know much about the guy,but in this book i started to like him .He was fun to rad about,especially when he was trying really hard to calm down Nick and Ty.But he was sweet and charming,mainly loyal and capable of a lot of things.And ,of course, like everyone else:funny.
For that matter, who would have expected dead bodies at a wedding? Ty and Zane, that’s fucking who.
Ty and Zane?They changed a little.Ty was more serious and a little strange,but i think that was because something happened to him when he returned from the Marines after six months.Zane?Relaxed and exactly the same,but he was acting like the weight of the world finally dissapeard from his shoulders.And that was the best thing.
I admit ,i admit!I laughed so much that i started to think that i will never find another series that could make me laugh so much.I love the combination between dangerous ,funny and sexy as hell that happened in this book.A lot of:intense,funny and sexy moments,but also dangerous,especially when Ty's claustrophobia was involved,or Nick's flashbacks.
But,i hated a little the fact that Zane waited soo much to accepted Ty proposal.All those moments when Ty proposed where romantic and beautiful,but knowing everything that they've been through ,and even if i hate it,i knew very well why Zane refused the first times.But when he accepted?It was abso-freaking-lutely amazing!Especially,when i know that someone else proposed to someone else,and it was kind of beautiful.Heck,beautiful?That's just a word,my list is too damn long.
This book was all about family.This book was a way of showing how Ty,Zane,Nick and Kelly work together when people who they love are in dangerous and what they are capable to do in order for those poeple to be safe again.Ty and Zane proved that they can save each other.And now another couple showed me what they were capable to do for each other ,and ,of course,for Ty and Zane..Cray,but amazing!And it was pretty much my kind of book ,because it was a roller coaster of funny,crazy and dangerous events.Loved it!
