She’s through playing it safe…

Men in Blue, Book 4

Waiting. Watching.

Jambrea was patient long enough. After nearly ten years pining over a man with whom she’d spent a single night, her job set her on a collision course with two sexy cops who turned her head…and ignited her passion.

More agonizing. Debating.

When it became clear that Matt and Clint would never admit to the bisexual attraction making an equilateral relationship possible, she couldn’t choose a favorite. So she had to turn away and move her life forward—without them. Jambrea approaches Mistress Lily and Master Jeremy to arrange a wild night at their sex club—never expecting her friends would pull a bait and switch.

Time’s up.

Just when happily ever after dangles within reach, it becomes clear someone has Jambrea in their crosshairs. Is it one of her lovers’ old cases coming back to haunt them, or a ghost from her military past? One thing’s for certain. Now that they’ve made the leap, they’d better learn to soar…or they’ll all crash together.

Regret had no place in their bed.

Insecurities, sexual frustration and fear of change: recipe for disaster or simply hurdles to finding a forever kind of love? Only time, a match making Mistress, and the blessings of a first love can tell. In this latest edition to the Men in Blue series, Ms. Rylon pulls readers into another heart wrenching and poignant love story that left me grabbing for the tissue box.

Jambrea Jones, Jambi to her friends, Wild Thing to her lovers, was a truly lovable character. She’s a hero from page one and someone who I could easily cheer for. I loved her honesty with herself as well as others. She joined the military because she needed the money for school but she took her job of protecting the injured very seriously. It wasn’t simply a means to an end where she would look out for herself more than her charges. I admired that. When the time she committed to the military was up she took her experiences and made a new life but there was a thread to her past that she held onto: the thread that linked her to her first love, John David. He may not have been intended to be her forever love but the indelible mark they left on each other was so beautifully spelled out in the pages of this story.

I liked how Ms. Rylon backtracked ever so often to drop in information from Jambi’s past as explanation for the woman she had become. Her military training as a nurse and the man who first touched her heart were so splendidly and vividly displayed in her descriptive writing. Let me tell you, the part about the ‘super spy’ brought more than a few tears.

The men who were destined to give Jambrea the love that John couldn’t were different than him but no less heroes. Some readers might think that she settled for Clint and Matt when she finally gave up on John but they would be wrong. I loved how these guys are so passionate about Jambi and determined that she not only feel wooed, cherished, and not rushed. Bless their hearts, they really were trying to be gentlemen. It’s clear from the get go, Jambi doesn’t want gentle. However, she very much wants what these two guys bring separately and together to the relationship. Readers who don’t enjoy a little M/M action need not read this book. These guys may be new to that arena but they catch on fast and hot!

There’s an underlying story that serves as the basis for Jambrea, Clint and Matt meeting up with someone who provides closure for Jambrea and John’s history. It also sets up a future story for Ryan and Ben along with the tension generated between Lucas and Ellie. That’s one story I have no doubt will have me crying big ugly tears. It’s going to be so good when they find their HEA. They both deserve it so much!

Spread Your Wings works fine as a stand-alone but there is a lot of history from the prior stories sprinkled in. I’d forgotten that I’d read the first book in the series when it came out a few years ago. I will most definitely be going back to read the missed in between books. It sounds like this group of men and women have given up blood, sweat and tears to form the tight unit of Men in Blue. They are more than a unit, they’re a family anyone could be proud to be part of. If strong women and men who love them with their whole heart is what you’re in the mood for, check out the Men in Blue series
