THIRDS: Book One

When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences—and the media frenzy—aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed. Instead, his adoptive father—a sergeant at the Therian-Human Intelligence Recon Defense Squadron otherwise known as the THIRDS—pulls a few strings, and Dex gets recruited as a Defense Agent.

Dex is determined to get his life back on track and eager to get started in his new job. But his first meeting with Team Leader Sloane Brodie, who also happens to be his new jaguar Therian partner, turns disastrous. When the team is called to investigate the murders of three HumaniTherian activists, it soon becomes clear to Dex that getting his partner and the rest of the tightknit team to accept him will be a lot harder than catching the killer—and every bit as dangerous.

Customer Reviews

3.5-4 Stars

This was actually pretty good. I liked the storyline and the characters. Some parts were a little too descriptive to me and I skimmed a little but I loved Dex and Sloane. Dex really made the story for me. I also really liked Cael/Ash and Calvin/Hobbs. I really want to read their stories but I know there are a lot of books in between. I'll probably read this set randomly when I feel like it. Good read though.

sci-fi shifter M/M action & comedy

I love these characters. They're all so different, and so interesting. Of course I love Dex, the life of the party, and Sloane, Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome. But I also find myself drawn to Hobbs and Cael and others. This is definitely an Allstar cast. The storyline is an excellent mix of action and comedy. The ideas of friendship and family play heavy roles, and everything becomes lighter with Dex's amazing personality.

I can't wait to read more.

This was my favorite quote—"It's like half of me is missing, but it's not, it's inside me. But no matter what form I'm in, I'll never be able to get the two halves together."
