A Matter of Time, Volume 2 by Mary Calmes

2nd Edition

Books Three and Four
Vol. 2

Three years ago, Jory Harcourt changed his name and shut the door on a past full of pain, only to emerge stronger on the other side. He has a new career, a great working partner, and a satisfying life—except for the hole in his chest left behind when police Detective Sam Kage walked out with his heart.

Now Sam's back and he knows what he wants... and what he wants is Jory. Jory, who doesn't know if he can survive another break up or losing Sam to his dangerous job, resists returning to the arms of the only man he has ever truly loved. But when a serial killer with a score to settle targets Jory, he will have to decide if love is worth the danger as he tries to solve the case and keep Sam safe.

I really like Mary Calmes books and I know what I'm signing up for when I read them. But perhaps this one was not meant to be read as one long novel. Between Jory and Sam constantly landing themselves in the hospital and Jory repeatedly flip flopping between being terrified and pulling stupid stunts it just got kind of exhausting. And then the final part was like a flash through random relationship issues without any real satisfaction of seeing people work things out. Volume one was better paced and planned out. Though I wanted to see the conclusion, I would have liked some better planning and some more follow up on the stressors. For example when Jory sees his attacker glaring at him in a truly horrifying way and Jory claims he might never get the image out of his head we never hear of it again. Instantly he recovers and apparently adjusts just fine to this three year threat on his life. There were just quite a few inconsistencies that would have made the story better if they were planned out more carefully.

Loved reading more about Sam and Jory. Hated that the first book didn't give them their HEA and had to read more. I just knew there was so much more to their story and this book delivered. While there were some minor flaws and aspects that I didn't like, I fell in love with the characters in the first book enough to not care about minor details. Well worth the read. 800+ pgs.

Perhaps soap opera is the best way to describe this- the world is populated only by people who know each other and they see each other almost daily, no matter where they live or what their occupation is, and everyone is at least good-looking, if not downright hot. So the bad- It was killing me that Jory ran into people the way he did everywhere he went. I've never lived there, so I can't say from experience, but I thought Chicago was bigger than that. I don't see my neighbors out in their yards half as much as he saw the same exes over and over. When I picked up the first book in the series, I too had difficulties with the uneven writing. I also was irritated that Jory drifted off in his thoughts in a way that made it obvious to everyone. You can think that much without having your other functions shut down. Also, the way the author would give a quick sysopsis of what had occurred in the previous "book" gave me the feeling this was written online first as a WIP and I was feeling a little ripped off. So now it sounds like I am complaining about the series, but I am definitely NOT. Despite all those annoying things, I ended up loving the first book and having to quickly purchase the 2nd volume (and then the third when it came out- yay!). None of those people could ever be real, but that's what made it so great a read. Who hasn't had the fantasy (at least as a teenager- come on)of being desired in some way by everyone in the room (and of course they are all good looking and rich, dammmit!)Although at some point in the third book Jory's psychology of what good looking is is explained, so you have to understand you are totally in Jory's mind. Think of it as living in rose colored glasses. Anyway, it's fun, with loony escapades, hot m/m interaction and the kind of dialogue and relationships no woman would stand reading about if it happened between a woman and a man, but I am a full on fan of this series and many of the author's other books. No, it's not a perfect read, but it IS a really, really good one.
