I’m totally in love with this series. I admit I anxiously await the next book like a love-crazed groupie at a rock concert. There is something very special about the way Ms. Cooper really gets to the heart of her characters and yet still continues the move the story and the series smoothly throughout each book. Each book in this series is unique and a very fresh read for me and I love revisiting these characters in these books, over and over.
Since the blurb does an excellent job describing the book, I won’t rehash it. I do want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the other characters from the previous books relationships continue to evolve as the series continues. I liked the dynamics between the two heroes, Radan and Andrew, and thought they were very well matched together. There is a sizzling connection between them that stands out among my other favorite heroes in the series and I adored watching the push-pull they went through to get together.
The world building in this series is also interesting and unique. It’s easy to follow and highly addictive to read. I like that each character in each book really brings something special into the series, and they’re still able to make their own mark in the story/series and in my heart as well. Although I do believe that Fang Tango could probably be read as a stand-alone book, I do not recommend it. To fully understand and enjoy all of the wonderful cast of characters in this book, I would read these books in series order. You won’t be sorry if you do. Highly Recommended!
