Fantastic start to Nicole Flockton's new series featuring the leaders of a Freemasons Lodge on a private mission. Loved the air of mystery she sets. This first book sets the stage for the ongoing storyline regarding this mysterious cause the Freemasons are privately pursuing, under the cover of publicly supporting a charity for homeless and runaway teens. However, in THE VICTOR, this mystery takes a back seat to the love story of Cole Jacobs and his estranged wife, Ava Vaughn. Each successive book will focus on a love match for each of the four leaders and friends. Cole and Ava have been estranged since the beginning of their marriage when a tragedy comes between them. Each remains in love with the other, but both have their troubles with communication and doubts so they've remained separated. The Freemasons charity event becomes a welcome excuse to attempt a second chance. Ms. Flockton weaves a tale of ups and downs with moments of real connection and passion, but then plenty of miscommunication that made me wonder to the very end if these two would work it out or not. I'm looking forward to reading Dominic's story in The Hunter, the second book in the Freemasons series. 4 stars
This was a great start to The Freemasons series! The series is about four friends who are members of the Freemasons, though it's not the main focus. Just enough is mentioned about the organization to be intriguing without taking away from this second chance romance. Cole and Ava's marriage is floundering after a tragic event just days after their wedding. After living apart for six months, they work together on a charity benefit and learn how to open their hearts to each other again. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series!
Alpha males, second chances, and an organization with secrets Nicole Flockton has written another good romance, a second chances one this time, with characters that are so real, they jump off the page for you. She handles a hard subject well—the aftermath of a couple who has lost a baby and is struggling to overcome the grief and changes to their marriage and themselves. The hero and heroine have separated. The story begins with our heroine, Ava, making the decision to demand a divorce from her estranged husband, Cole. She’s started her own business—event planner—and just wants to get on with her life. While she was wildly in love with the hero, she never felt like she belonged in his world. Cole, a seriously alpha, alpha male hasn’t had time to deal with the state of his marriage due to the death of his father and inheriting the helm of his father’s business—a major corporation. And on top of that, he is very busy with his Freemason lodge and their main charity efforts. Cole’s character was written so well, I just wanted to smack him several times for being such a jackass. I have to say Ava is a much better person than I am because I would have decked Cole several times for his high-handed behavior. However I do think she gave in a little too quickly, but I am a stronger personality type than she is. I really enjoy having both hero and heroine’s POV; otherwise I would have hated Cole. I’m the first to admit I know nothing about the Freemasons other than the “no women allowed” thing, but I do not think I would deal well with the insistence of secrecy, even with their wives. But Ava only chafed a little, and I give her kudos for it. There are several instances where Nicole Flockton’s Aussie roots show—since the story takes place in Australia, it is to be expected. Biscuits vs. cookies *snicker* The story ended a little abruptly for me, and I felt some things were glossed over a bit too much, but this didn’t overshadow my overall enjoyment of the story. This is a quick read; I finished in two sittings. Nicole Flockton remains on my “must read” authors list.
