Rosa, really

The first book, Unspeakable Words, had some faults but was quite enjoyable. The second book, Walk a Mile, made me pissy as fuck. But this book?

I'm going to put the majority of my review under a spoiler--it was just way too hard reviewing the second book without spoiling the first one and I don't have the energy to even attempt it with this one. But anyway, I do want to say one thing to people who haven't started this series yet: do NOT get attached the serial killer plot in the first book. I lov

I am having some difficulties rating this book. I liked some things about it, but for the most part, I was really frustrated. Okay, I think I should go ahead with the ‘negative’ comments first, so I can close this opinion on a more positive note.

I was frustrated with the communication issue between Lee and John – for the majority of the book (at least until around 70%), I felt like we were back to where it started. It was one of my main problems with this couple. I thought t

I said "Wow" at the end of book two, and the feeling hasn't stopped. Jerry, after having been beaned pretty hard in the head with a baseball bat, now has no memory of the past six months, and sketchy ones of his life before that. They're returning but not in the orderly fashion he would prefer. *grins* For a guy who essentially has an eidetic memory, this is beyond frustrating. So basically, he doesn't remember John, he doesn't remember the artifacts, and that means he doesn't remember that John ...more

Another wonderful book in this series!

I love Jerry Lee, John, Jean, Oliver and Phoenix! It's going to be so hard waiting on the next book! This series is so addictive.

This book finds us back with our two favorite FBI agents, this time in Lee's POV. After waking from his recent attack with some significant amnesia, Lee has no recollection of his relationship with John Flynn, or the nature of the mysterious relic involved in their case. It's interesting to watch Jerry/Lee reinventing himself, while not knowing how John can hear and anticipate him. The relationship between the guys is stripped down and rebuilt on a slightly different foundation.

So, so good. The guys finally began communicating, Jerry shed all his fears and worries, and the soundproof booth is gone, finally.

Can't wait for the next book.

This is my favourite paranormal/FBI series in the m/m genre, and my favourite book of the three so far.

I have to declare a mild bias as Sarah and I are members of the same crit group. (view spoiler)
This is book three in a series I’ve followed since the first book was published in 2010 – and loved ever since – and I’d strongly advise against reading it as a standalone. Aside from missing out on two really great books, you’d also miss half the story since it’s virtually impossible to incorporate all the plot twists and turns I loved so much in the first two books. Plus, getting into this series at this point you’d also miss out on half the joy of seeing hermit crab Jerry out of his shell, mo ...more

I was so glad to see another book in this series and it looks like there will be more! [review hidden as it may contain spoilers for some readers]

We pick up book 3 pretty much right where book 2 left off. Jerry, who has an eidetic memory, has amnesia, and has to rely on John Flynn for information about their most recent cases AND their relationship.

Waking up with amnesia to find out you have a seriously hot boyfriend? WHERE DO I SIGN UP??

What can I say about this book other then it was just so good!!!

These two characters Jerry and Flynn go through so much in this book!
Between the memory loss Jerry has and then the secrets Flynn keeps from Jerry. You get to watch these two grow so much stronger as a couple too. Of course you get your mystery and the bad guys who come after them. On top of that you really get to see more of Jerry's character and can I just say I really do love his character!

4.5 stars
I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

This is the third book and I must say that I think that Flynn and Jerry's relationship grows by leaps and bounds. Because of Jerry's memory loss, you get to see a much more honest Jerry. He is no longer guarded - he let's it all hang out in this book.

I still was slightly upset with Flynn, but understand his reasons behind his actions.
Finally, we get a little more insight into the origin of the puzzle box artifacts, and at least one antagonist searching to claim them. Also, more development of the primary romance between the main characters, Parker's amnesia redefining their relationship from the perspective of an outsider, as well as their secondary family ties as they begin to develop a support network. An enjoyable step forward in the story.

This is such a wonderful series. And, I cannot express how much I am enjoying the two main characters, Flynn and Lee. But what caught my imagination and wanted more of was Flynn's mother, Jean and her book club. That was just a great part of this story. Can't wait for the next book.

4 Heart Review by Vicki

I’ve been “friends” with Sarah Madison on Facebook for some time, and I’ve been wanting to read one of her books. I saw Truth and Consequences on our list for review and decided it was time to give her a try. Since this is the third in a series, I grabbed the first and second books so I would be all up to date.

This review WILL contain spoilers for the first two books. There is no way I can talk about the plot of this book without mentioning things that occurred in the othe
I wish I wasn't so rigid.

Unlike the first two books this one is written in 1st person pov. Why I do not know, but I just can't get into the book as a result. Who changes from writing books 1-2 in 3rd person pov to 1st pov in the third book of a series? I don't understand.

3.5 stars round up.

I must admit, I didn't quite recalled Jerry's voice as clearly to make a sound judgement. But I will say that I like Lee's voice over Jerry's. Lee seems lighter and more playful, as if he no longer carried the weight of the world. It was fun reading from Lee's POV as he went through his recuperation processes with his dry sense of humour and his observations.

Mrs. Flynn, Jean, was a delight to read. She came far from being an absentee, alcoholic mother by turning into a strong,

of the 3 books, i liked this one the best because we get to see some emotion from john and find out that he's not the complete a$$hole i thought he was in books 1 & 2. there is absolutely nothing about the original serial killer until the very end which essentially lends to the cliffy-ish ending. i'm not sure how much i can say here without spoiling too much of the other books or this story but the ending with the bad guy was a bit anticlimactic after a huge build up that was actual

I enjoyed this book a little more than the others but it still had problems for me. I just could not get into calling Jerry, Lee. It made me think we had a new character but I knew there wasn’t. However, there was still basically no reference to the unsolved serial killer case that brought Flynn into the book. I really think the author needs to address this issue. That being said I enjoyed the basics of this book but am still confused by the name of it. I also enjoyed the author writing style an ...more
I think I might like this book even better than the first two. Because Lee couldn't work, we get to see the guys in a more relaxed setting and dealing with John's mom, her bookclub, and her lover Charles. But there is still plenty of suspense regarding the strange artifacts, including info about their origin and other people who may know about them.

Yes, there ARE consequences once Lee gets his memories back and discovers John has been able to read him all this time. I thought that both the truth

I didn't enjoy 50% of this book. AND it ended in the middle of a scene -

I am so completely done with books that do that. You don't see major authors doing that-why do these MM authors think that is good marketing? (thanks Riptide)

These authors should keep in mind if people get sick of paying for books that end in the middle of a scene they won't be paying for the next book.

Just saying...

Let me preface this by saying that this will be more of a review of the series and the impression I've gotten of it so far than of this particular book. Having said that, least begin.

When I first read the blurb for the first novel I was intrigued but I honestly didn't think I'd like it quite as much as I did. It was fast paced and had more romance than actual mystery but it still had me absolutely hooked. I think what most got to me was the narrative style, which was incredibly consistent throug
Well. wow! I simply loved this. Yes, yes, for a while, there, I was really angry with John, even when I could understand his motives it seemed really unfair for Jer... er, Lee :P But I can't stay mad at him too long. And I get it, I really do. He was afraid, and fear is never a good advisor.

They are getting a little tiny bit better at communication, there is hope for them! And when Jerry decides that the soundproof booth must go for good? That's the moment when I wanted to hug him and tell him:
