Sequel to A Matter of Time I & II

Jory Harcourt doesn't have to go looking for trouble. Wherever he goes, it seems to find him—particularly when his partner, Sam Kage, is working undercover on a federal task force.

After the recession forces him to close his business, Jory goes to work as a matchmaker and event planner. From there, it's only a matter of time before his big mouth and up-front attitude make him the rope in a tug-of-war between a trust fund baby and a drug-smuggling criminal. Then, as if that situation weren't delicate enough, Jory's undercover lover shows up working for the smuggler.

Between the men who want him and the men who just want him dead, Chicago is getting a little crowded for Jory, so on the advice of his brother, his boyfriend, and the FBI task force, he heads for Hawaii... where a serious accident threatens his quality of life. Can Sam and Jory keep the faith and prove that their relationship really is bulletproof?

~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Life has been changing drastically for Jory Harcourt. But then again, Jory’s life has always been less than normal. He is constantly finding himself stumbling into trouble, but this time he finds himself caught between a lovesick ex and a drug smuggling, gun running criminal all while Sam is undercover. Jory is one of those characters that you cannot help but love. Like all the side characters in the story, you find his personality magnetic and charming. Sometimes, I find myself asking WWJD – what would Jory do in certain situations because he always manages to weasel his way out of even the worst situations. It’s why he is such a good match for Sam. Because even though a gun is being pointed Sam’s head and Jory is placed between the criminal who lusts after him, Jory doesn’t let the facade drop. He singlehandedly keeps the operation alive and that means, he keeps his lover alive too. Countless times in this series, Jory manages to do things that the police in this series cannot. Sometimes, you have to suspend belief but it doesn’t make it less of an entertaining ride. When things get too hot to handle though, Jory is forced to head over to Hawaii. I love the details that Calmes incorporated in what little scenes they had about the Hawaiian culture. But for me, the most interesting bits dealt with Aaron Sutter. Man, this guy just makes me want to break into song –*sings* He’s got it, he’s got it baddd. While Dr. Nick Sullivan had it just as bad, he got over it and married some chick. For Sutter though, I wonder if it will ever be that easy. He seems so caught up in the idea of loving Jory, that he doesn’t even see another person in his current lover. I know he gets a book and I am so glad that he does. Sutter deserves his own HEA after what he went through. I only have one Sam and Jory book left. I think I may cry after this. I don’t even want to jump into the next book because I don’t want to reach the end. The ride, however, has been emotional and riveting. I know for sure that this series will be etched in my mind and I will be returning back for more rereads. I simply cannot get enough of Sam and Jory. They are perfect.

There really isn't much for me to say here. If you have enjoyed the other books in this series, then Bulletproof will not disappoint. Jory is still his same old self - for better or for worst. At this point, I believe it is safe to say that readers have to really enjoy Jory's character or understand his thought process in order to get into this book/series in general. After all, Bulletproof (like the other books in this series) are told from Jory's perspective. However, there were a few things/character flaws I did NOT enjoy. As much as I love Jory's overall character, there were just some things I disliked. For one, he's married to Sam Kage, yet his doubts/trust issues feel more like someone who has just started a relationship with a stranger. It frustrated me to no end how these doubts have played over this novel, including the previous installment. At this point, Jory should have complete faith in Sam - if nothing else, it's just unfair for Sam to be scrutinized in such suspicions. These doubts also seem to take time away from the actual plot, in my opinion. Furthermore, many of the conflicts that occur seemed to be brought on by Jory's bad decision making. This is a second character flaw - despite reasoning from both others and himself, Jory just seems to just do what he wants. And this is what starts a series of bad things to happen. I could understand this from the earlier novels, but at this point, I feel that Jory shouldn't be making the same mistakes he was in the past. It shows a lack of character development on his part. In terms of strengths for this novel, the emotions are definitely there. You KNOW when Jory misses Sam, his feelings for his friends and family, and some of the development/maturation that DOES occur with him. You start to see how Jory is becoming more of an adult, despite his character flaws. As for the life-threatening conflicts that do occur, all I can say is that nothing is breath-taking or will make you hang from the edge of your seat. If anything, Bulletproof is more emotion than action.

The characters are so great. The last book to the series keeps the characters and Mary Calmes doesn't short change us as a writer. I hope to see them again.
