THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn are as much in love now as they were nearly seven years ago when a tragic event on the job destroyed their relationship. The two drift together only to be pulled apart time and time again. When Hudson draws the interest of dangerous enemies, both within and outside the organization, Seb wants nothing more than to protect the man who still means everything to him.
As life and death events, an uncertain future, and startling truths draw Hudson and Seb to each other yet again, they must make a choice: trust their love and take strength from what they share, or lose what matters most for good this time.
Darkest Hour Before Dawn, the ninth book in Charlie Cochet’s THIRDS series, is a male/male science fiction romance. THIRDS Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs and Chief Medical Examiner Hudson Colbourn have had an on again off again relationship for years. When the stakes are high, they’ll need to decide how much their love is worth fighting for.
I love a good second (or third) chance romance. Characters with history usually draw me in. Seb and Hudson had such potential, but the intricacies of their relationship was lost in Cochet’s alternate universe. Despite the good writing the plot often felt contrived, at least for my tastes – which leads me to my other issue. This is the first of the THIRDS books that I have read, so I’m positive that readers who have followed the series from the beginning will get more enjoyment out of Darkest Hour Before Dawn than I did. That being said the author has a clear, interesting writing style, and I would imagine loyal fans who will love this book. It just wasn’t for me.
