We actually already know both Connor and Josh from book one (which was Indy and Noah’s story), but this is their story. Josh suffers from PTSD, and it affects him quite badly, and due to this he comes across as withdrawn when outside the house. However at home, he loves nothing more than looking after his family, which is Indy and Noah.
When Connor decides to try and act on his feelings for Josh, things don’t quite go according to plan, but then again I think Connor is uncertain of himself, and if Josh would actually be interested in someone like him. It is then Josh who makes the first move, and more importantly the two actually begin to talk – not that Connor really had a choice, as Josh stated there are no secrets, we talk about everything.
I loved this part of the story, Josh was attracted to Connor, but he also had in the back of his mind why would someone want him, the person whose life is dictated by his PTSD, but then Connor had his own demons to conquer and he wasn’t sure that Josh would be able to accept him as he is, as nobody else had.
Connor and Josh seem to grow closer, and the submissive in Josh really comes out more, but Connor seems to be in his element being the dominant one. The journey between the two of them was intensive, but at the same time you could tell how much Josh has come to mean to Connor, and the gentleness that Connor shows Josh was as important as being the dominant one.
However, Connor does still hold a big secret from his past and when this is revealed, it seems that Connor may well lose Josh, as he would stay with Indy and Noah, and not remain with Connor. But Connor knows in his heart that Josh is the very special person he has been searching for, and he will do almost anything that Josh, Indy or Noah want him to, so that he can stay in their family.
It takes a crisis to hit the house before Josh, Indy and Noah realise how much Connor wants to be part of their misfit family, but is he actually up to the task??
The last few chapters of the book have set up the background for the next book, and I have to admit I really can’t wait to read this book. This series has kept me gripped since the first book, and I hope that the next book, or should I say the next two books will keep me just as enthralled - I had to go and check how many were in this series, and was over the moon to find there are still another two books to look forward to :)
