OMG!!! Rise and Fall continues where Rack and Ruin finished. With both Sloane and Ash injured, and the team in the crosshairs, Sparks takes them off the case. Of course, Dex is none too pleased with that, especially as it was Sloane who got injured. So, he decides that he can't sit back and do nothing, and goes maverick. Now, with the team being more than just a team, it doesn't quite work out the way he thought it would. Also, Sloane is no slouch in the old brain department and figures out what Dex is doing. With more crossing over than Dex realises, Ash is looking out for him and telling Sloane, Austen is reporting both to Seb and Sloane, whilst giving out information to Dex. You get the idea. There is so much going on in this book, and yet there is still time for the relationships. Cael and Ash, Calvin and Hobbs, and now Bradley and Lou too. What I love about these books is that the overall story arc continues, with plenty of action, twists and turns, and yet there is still 'time' for the couples. We learn more about Ash and Cael, Calvin, Hobbs, and ZZ Top (still laughing about that), and don't forget my favourite couple of all - Sloane and Dex. I really can't say how much I am loving this series, with plenty of moments to make me laugh out loud. I will drop two hints for those who know - white nurse's uniform and Tony and Old Betsy, not forgetting when Tony calls Dex 'Pocahontas'!!! Can't wait for the next book, and highly recommend this one! * Verified Purchase ~ April 2017 * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

So flipping fantastic! This is the first of the four books that had a healthy dose of angst. Anyone who knows me knows I hate angst. Thankfully, Ms. Cochet didn’t make it last long. This book goes so many places – and does it in such a short amount of time. Love, war, bad guys getting away, bad guys turning themselves in, good guys killing bad guys, Destructive Delta on leave – what can I say? This book has it all. And a lot of bad guys popping up. But the main bad guy in charge of the coalition? Well, he’s got a plan and he watches our heroes until he can put that plan into motion. With all the drama, we’ve got Dex keeping secrets from Sloane who knows what secrets he’s keeping, and Ash who is getting closer to letting Cael in but can’t quite get past his own reservations. So what does the main bad guy do? Kidnaps our favorite Cheetah Therian. Oh, no you don’t! There is so much in this story that I’m sure will be explained in future books, but I so want to know about the ‘permanent mark’ that made all of Seb’s feral Therians growl. There has to be an even deeper meaning than what we’ve been told so far. The next story, Against the Grain, will continue along the same timeline, but with Ash & Cael as the main characters and I can’t wait to read it. Except it’s not due out until July! *cries* I wonder if I got a super-duper-sized bag of Cheesy Doodles if Dex would help push the story forward quicker. Probably not. Maybe I’ll get them and then laugh when he can’t have any. What can I say? I’m a THIRDS addict and I need my next fix. And I REALLY wanna know what Dad said to Sloane and Ash and what the meaning is behind ‘Old Betsy’. *hops up and down* please! Please! I need my next fix… Reviewed by a-nony-mouse for Crystal’s Many Reviewers **Copy BOUGHT for review**

The team is back, even though the book tries to center around Dex and Sloan all the other characters play such an important and major roles it’s hard to say that this is just about them two. This story picks up right where we left the last one, with Sloan being blown up and Dex and Ash being shot at. And because of this, Sparks has decided to remove the team from any case work dealing with Hogan. This of course doesn’t sit well with Dex and he decides to start an investigation on his own. The team quickly gets involved ‘off the clock’ and mayhem ensues.  All the while, the other members are sorting their own lives and feelings out for each other.  So like the others its action packed and keeps you griped from beginning to end. What I enjoyed more about this one, is it’s chemistry, humor, companionship didn't feel forced and not just between Sloan and Dex but between all of the team mates. It wasn't full of one liner, cheesy remark to try and force a reader’s laugh. The humor when it appeared was more natural. This was a more serious book and the writing reflected that, unlike the previous books. We weren't left with a cliffy as such but we defiantly left open enough that we should expect another one or at the very least a novella to wrap everything up.  I was given this book in exchange for an honest review by Crystals Many Reviews
