PART & PARCEL by Abigail Roux Blog Tour Review





About Part & Parcel


Nick O'Flaherty and Kelly Abbott had their happy ending in sight when a friend’s call for help almost ended with them losing it to the blade of a knife. Now, in the aftermath of near-disaster, both men are trying to heal and move on.


Moving on together, though, is harder than either of them realized it would be. Kelly struggles with simply being a lover instead of the Doc, while Nick is mired in his recovery. The distance between them inches along in stilted silence.


Desperately seeking solace, Nick finally gathers the courage to sort through the possessions his dear friend and fellow Sidewinder teammate Elias Sanchez left him when he died. Instead of comforting memories, Nick and Kelly find a stack of letters and strict instructions from Eli that prompt them to send out a call for assistance. With Eli’s letters in hand, Sidewinder sets out on one last mission together, seeking peace and absolution from beyond the grave—and from each other.

REVIEW

Part & Parcel (Sidewinder, #3)



This book has a different feel from the others set in Cut & Run/Sidewinder universe. We don't get the explosive atmosphere they're usually in, but we're given a deep insider look at our guys instead.

I loved taking this journey with them. I lost count of how many times I teared up. I chuckled at their silly antics plenty also. Part & Parcel is about the whole gang healing and finding their brotherhood again. It's also about Nick and Kelly getting right in their relationship.

I enjoyed every word. I loved and laughed and commiserated every step with them. I feel a bond with every member now including Eli. This book really helped to catch me up on the present and past of Sidewinder. It's like an emotional cleansing for the guys and the reader.

The bonus Brick & Mortar scene at the really pumped me up for what's to come. I'm so thankful the author is continuing to write stories about the men I love. Yes, I recommend this story.

4.5 stars

  1. I absolutely LOVED this book even though I cried my mascara off more than once while reading it! Very few authors can pull such strong emotions out of me like Abi Roux! It was great to learn more about Eli, he definitely knew his boys, and the emotional journey the guys went through was heartbreaking, funny at times, and beautiful. LOVE these characters!!

  4. Totally agree. And I LOVED the more emotional feel of this book, the deeper journey we get. I kind of compare it to T&G...without the need for copious amounts of vodka. Only Abi can make you laugh until you almost drop your Kindle, swipe the page and be in tears by the bottom.

  8. I fell in love with Eli the moment we read his first letter. I love all the guys and we get to fall even more in love with them as they take a road trip. Nick and Kelly have some hard times but also some fun times. I really hope we see more sidewinder. Nickels and Ty and Zane in more books.

  19. I love, love, love this whole universe. I started this ride with Ty and Zane, but I now I'm a big fan of every single member of Sidewinder. I wish we had gotten to know Eli while he was still with us, but this book paints a great picture of him and how well he knows and loves the whole team.
