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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! I read these books right when they are published and I enjoy every one of them. This is how Sloane and Dex start out and it is both heartwrenching and hilarious. It was this book that made me a proud passenger of the Charlie Cochet bandwagon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What would you risk? This is the first book of the very well rated THIRDS series. In this book we get introduced to the main characters, the team, the family dynamics and the basics of how the story and Therians come about. We meet Dexter J Daley and his new partner Sloane Brodie. Dex starts out as a Human Police Force cop, who has to testify against his partner. Then he is basically kicked out and transferred over to a new division. There he meets the team of THIRDS agents that he will be working with. It is quite an adjustment. Sloan has not wanted a partner. He can never replace the one he lost. Since then he has been unfairly cruel to those who have tried to be his partner. Now, with Dex being basically his last chance - and a completely worthy choice - he finally has a partner. They both have been burned and had losses and pain from their past. Making a partnership work, while struggling with trust and attraction issues is not easy. Dex is so open and friendly, everyone just enjoys him right away. Everyone, that is, except for Sloane's own best friend and teammate. Sloane and Dex have an amazing friendship that in turn becomes a great and enviable partnership. The THIRDS series continues and since I love it more reviews are sure to come soon. I find this terrific story of characters and plot wonderful and hard to put down!
