Summary

Deputy US Marshal Miro Jones finally has everything he ever wanted. He's head-over-heels in love and married to the man of his dreams, his partner Ian Doyle, he's doing well at work, and all his friends are in good places as well. Things are all tied up nicely...until they're not.

Change has never been easy for Miro, and when situations at work force the team he's come to depend on to break apart, and worst of all, his and Ian's individual strengths put them on two separate paths, he's pretty certain everything just went up in smoke.

But before he can even worry about the future, his past comes for a visit, shaking his world up even more. It's hard to tell what road he should truly be on, but as he learns some paths are forged and others are discovered, it might be that where he's going is the right course after all. If he can navigate all the twists and turns, he and Ian might just get their happily ever after.

A good finale to the series....

There were far too many silly errors in Tristan's narration...such as Marshals/parents/employees with an added 'es' on the end seemingly every single time he said them, the usual 'langoriously' instead of languorously [is that really so difficult to say properly?? 🤔] and 'calvary' instead of cavalry to name but a few...so only 2.5 stars rounded up for the narration, which obviously wasn't checked...AGAIN!! Overall a good finale to the series.

**Book Review***

5 stars for the series as a whole. All the loose ends seemed to come together, and thank heaven Dr Hartley finally met his maker...he really gave me the willies 😨, and Miro's reaction to him also gave me shivers. Great ending to a really good series.

Great series

Very enjoyable story with likeable characters. This is a spin off from the matter of time series.

An ok latest instalment to a series.

I've started this series so I keep buying the books, but I honestly cannot remember much about this book, it was ok but it has taken me ages to finish it as I found it a bit boring.

Perfect Mary Calmes and Tristan James!

I have loved this series from the beginning and this 4th book is perfect. Tristan James' voice IS Miro Jones! I love the way that Mary Calmes' books mention the day to day things so you feel like you really know your character. I love the fact the books are long, not just 2 or 3 hours. Some books fit the shorter length (that works for some books) but not this series.
SPOILER ALRET:
I really want to know: 1.) How the 16 year old died? 2.) What happened to the 2 new Marshals that just transferred in to Chicago? 3.) Does Ned and his mother get what they deserve? 4.) What happens to Miro and Ian in the future (PLEASE-no getting old and passing!) If I don't find out that is ok, they will forever stay at this age in my mind. 5.) Do they like their jobs now? 6.) What is in the safe? 7.) I have loved Miro and Ian also Jory and Sam, can I have a new series?
Thank you Ms. Calmes and Ms. James for the hours of enjoyment I have gotten from this series.

Seems like mostly flashbacks

This was extremely short despite being almost 9hrs long. There's a lot of flashbacks in it and the actual story is more like a novella. Great story, but just when it feels like its actually just starting it ends. So 4/5 for this one unfortunately.

I'm torn between recommending this book and not recommending this book. I hate having an incomplete series, so I'd recommend it just based on that, and there's a lot of important details in this book that (if there's another) you'll miss out on if you don't get this one. But is it really worth it? Well, honestly, if Mary Calmes doesn't publish another in the series, then I'd say no and leave book three as the ending.

A rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.75
Performance: 5.0
Story: 4.5

I've made it no secret from book #1 that I've loved this series. I *think* this is the final book in the series (although I'm seriously hoping for a spinoff series). As such, it ended on a seriously high note, too. This series from book one and throughout has just been phenomenal. And I've read it going back and forth between the audiobook and prints books (that are ALL on my keeper/reread shelf because I love this series). The books are so riveting, I almost always reach a point in the audio where I need to devour the story faster and switch to the print book, but the audiobooks (with Tristan James' narration) are just so perfect, I don't want to stop listening to them either. So, I end up going back and forth.

This is a series that follows one couple...Miro and Ian, who are both US Marshals. As such, it's a series that you need to read from the very beginning. These are not standalone reads. But with that being said, this is easily one of my top ten series that I've EVER read, so I HIGHLY recommend you read it ASAP!!

This book ended the series beautifully. It tied up story lines that have flowed through out the entire four book series and gave a beautiful glimpse into how perfect every aspect of Miro and Ian's lives will continue to work and flow together.

I loved it so, so much. LOVED IT!

I'd give this one 10 stars if I could!

I have to say I was worried when I read the synopsis for this one. Miro has been through SO much, I just wanted to him to have five solid minutes of happiness and peace. The way things roll out in the story though, I shouldn't have been worried. It's an action packed, non stop roller coaster that twists and turns and hurls you sideways then drops you on your ass. But it's so damn good!!! The book literally hits the ground running and it doesn't stop until the very end. I was beyond engrossed with this story, I was listening in the car via my Zune which I don't normally do.

After listening to the entire book, the path Calmes put these characters on made perfect sense. I mean, seriously, if you know Ian and Miro you know that life is never going to be home by five, dinner at the table with an aged red wine, feeding each other strawberries and making love by candlelight. With these two it's more like spaghetti that doesn't drip it's so thick at damn near midnight after dropping a sociopath of at the nuthouse. Followed up with hot, rough, sweaty sex in the pantry before falling into bed exhausted and sticky then waking up with thoughts of beating the shit out of the ringing cell phone with a very big gun.

Tristan James, goddamn I love this man. There is nothing he can't do with his voice. What I love is that each and every book in this story flows seemlesly with each and every character clearly conveyed with the same tones, nuances and vocal ticks from one book to the next. I could probably spend a weekend listening to this series back to back and be perfectly content.

If you like stories with two strong willed gentleman that can't get enough of each other and like to chase crazy people into burning buildings or run toward a spray of bullets instead of away from them. You'll love this one! You have to start with book 1 though, they must be read or listened to in order.

Fantastic!

So many emotions, and all of them good!

I love this series so much I cannot adequately convey how much. I'm sad this is the last time we'll get a story from Miro's POV, but all the ends have been tied up and I'm looking forward to what Calmes does with a new POV in the next book.

Tristan James is phenomenal - buy this (and all the Marshal books) audio!! ❤

Recommended!!

Worthy of repeated listens

Mary's characters are sweet, funny, and just a joy to root for. Tristan's lovely, husky voice gives each character its own personality. The story is full of all the good romance tropes but somehow avoids being dull or predictable. I would love to see this story line turned into a series of movies or a tv show.

5-Star Entertainment

One of the best series in this genera. The characters are authentic and consistent. in word and deed throughout the series. Tristin James is the best and makes the characters real and unforgettable. I'd love to have more books in this series and to know what Craig Hartley left in his safe, and the material for new stories of Miro Jones in his new job would be enormous. The new marshals would provide multiple opportunities for new characters. Book 5 +++ would be huge hits!

Okay but...

Nice story but too much “I need you” “will you always be mine” “don’t let there be anyone but me in your life” etc.

Ian and Miro ♥️

This series is beyond enjoyable, action packed, well written and hot. By the time I got to this fourth book I was so worried, how was this story going to tie up all it’s ends? How can there possibly be a HEA????

The answer is there isn’t.
You will end this book with questions and no glimpse of the future. The story ends with contentment, and love. A perfect moment for our boys. It was simultaneously perfect and infuriating!

So should you buy this fourth installment??

Hell yes!!
