Description

Lucky

Two years ago I humiliated myself by declaring my love to an older man who clearly didn’t share my feelings. And that’s fine. One day Zach will come around. Meanwhile, I’ve built a life for myself in northern Montana, pursuing my college degree while working hard toward certification in high-risk alpine search and rescue on the side. And perhaps I’ve kept the danger part a secret from my two dads. After all, what they don’t know won’t hurt them...

Everything’s going exactly as planned until my dads send Zach to check on me just as I’m dealing with an ex who doesn’t understand the meaning of the word no. It’s bad enough Zach still thinks of me as a child; now he also thinks I’m incapable of looking out for myself. I need to get him off my back before he finds out I’m not heading to Wyoming for summer break like everyone thinks. I’m going to Glacier National Park to learn how to rappel from helicopters...

Zach

Two years ago I wanted something I couldn't have, so I threw myself back into my job as an Army Ranger and wound up scarred in more ways than one. When the army dumps my sorry self back into the real world, it’s time to start over. I accept a summer job teaching high-risk search and rescue. On the way there, all I have to do is peek in on little Lucky Reed and make sure he’s okay.

He’s not. Someone has it out for him, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let him get hurt on my watch. My plan is to keep him safe until he heads south for his summer job playing trail guide to tourists. Once he’s gone, I’ll be free to head to Glacier where my biggest challenge will be keeping a handful of alpine search and rescue students safe as they learn how to dangle from helicopters high above the Rocky Mountains.

It’s all fine. Until it’s not. Danger follows us to Glacier, and by the time I finally start seeing Lucky as more than the awkward teenager he used to be, I wonder if it’s too late to convince him that this scarred soldier sees him as anything but little anymore.

Disappointed

Listened to Audio Book twice and read the Kindle version once. Didn't like the pairing. Thought phrasing was repetitive. Lucky was one of my favorite characters in the series, but think that he was short changed in this one. Having PTSD, and having been married to a guy who was 11 years younger, I just plain don't think that it was realistic. Michael saved the book in the Audible version, but overall it was a letdown.

Another amazing book

This was another amazing book from to amazing authors. Sloane Kennedy and Lucy Lennox have did it again. I've been interested in Lucky's story since he was kissed by Calvin in book 1. to see how much Lucky has grown and the pain that Zach has inside. on the flip side I have never wanted to strangle a character as much as I wanted to strangle Zach sometimes I love him, but I just wanted to strangle him and yell at him to pull his head out of his ass. after just recently reading all of the other books I can honestly say I think this one's my favorite. and of course the book wouldn't be complete without some awkward nudity with Aunt Lolly.

A disappointment...

I have been a big fan of this series until this book. I’m sorry to say that I did not finish it-I gave up with three and a half hours left. The main characters aggravated me and I couldn’t listen anymore.

How many times does someone have to treat you like garbage before you finally say enough? Evidently, another 3+ hours worth. I wish that I could return the audio, but I don’t feel that it would be fair since I listened to over half.

Michael Dean did a fabulous job on the narration, as always, but the story itself left something to be desired!

It's only OK

3 Blue Roses
4 Blue Flames

Narrator Michael Dean gave another sensationally entertaining performance of the popular Twist of Fate series. His talented delivery will impress new listeners and old fans alike. His passionate portrayal of a broken man was truly an admirable effort.

Zack was so deeply hurt by another man and he has buckets full of unresolved issues. He was asked to keep an eye on Lucky, but soon it turned into more, of cause it did…

This was one hell of an irritating book, I felt like screaming at Zack a few times. In my eyes he is an asshole. He played yo-yo with Lucky, and Lucky is like an abused puppy, who continuously comes back for more.

If I was Lucky, I would have told him to fuck off a long time ago.

While I’m irritated; what was up with the spray painted car, the notes and cut rope. It’s a big deal! I feel the authors cut the story short or had it going too wide. Then just as a by-thought said it was a jealous co-worker. Yes right? WTF??

I don’t recommend this audiobook. The plot did not make sense to me. If you can overlook that and if you are inquisitive. Then go ahead, I warned you…

Happy Listening

I really liked this one!

I really liked this one! It was nice to see how Lucky grew up and watch him come into his own. I also liked revisiting everyone from the first three books. While there was angst, it was usually resolved quickly; not a big fan of when it drags out or lots of time elapses. While Lost and Found is my favorite, this is a close second. I would like to see if Calvin finds his HEA.

Oh Lucky!

I feel like I've been waiting just as long as Zack for him to grow up! And boy oh boy did he! Drunk Lucky might be my actual favorite thing ever! I love this series so much and each one just gets better! Dean definitely does it justice.

Review

I so enjoyed Above and Beyond and I am so glad that I purchased it. The narrator was excellent and more than accomplished the Herculean task of being the voices for these characters. I loved the storylines, and knew that this book would be great, whenever there is a Kennedy / Lennox pairing! I will be reading this again!

Loved the narration

It’s been a while since the last book in this series. This time we follow Lucky, the foster kid we meet in the first book (though you don’t have to have read any of the previous ones follow this one).

Lucky is in college in northern Montana, busy living his life. But having not come home to his family for more than the major holidays, his fathers ask their friend Zach to check up on Lucky. Something Zach is very reluctant to do considering the heat smouldering between them two years ago. Fate kept throwing them together, and it’s not long the heat between them consumes them both.

I was hooked by this book by the start. I was fascinated by both Lucky and Zach. Zach just a little bit more, his issues spoke to me, touched me. But what really surprised me was that this shine didn’t last that long for me. When we’ve reached the middle of the book I was fed up with all things Zach and his woe me personality. It wasn’t about his injuries, mental or otherwise, those I didn’t mind, they added to who he was, to his history. However, past hurts is not a green card for treating others badly, and he really treated Lucky badly. Almost to the point where I wanted Lucky to find someone else.

There was one other thing that didn’t make sense to me and that was the vandalism. Well, the vandalism made sense (well in romance novels), but the reactions to it didn’t. There were mentions of past notes, some spray-paint and I can maybe understand ignoring that. But when the vandalism turns dangerous and possibly even life threatening? How was I the only one worried about it? Lucky and Zach was too busy with their relationship drama to really worry or think about it. It didn’t make sense to me.

Above and Beyond was beautifully performed by Michael Dean. There’s one particular scene early in the book that stuck with me, can’t really explain as it didn’t really have a major impact on the story. But drunk Lucky was hilarious and Dean really captured the feel of the bar, the swaying Lucky and the slurred speech – and faulty logic. It was fun and made me smile. In general terms, this is also true. Dean captures the moments and the feelings in them. He made you balance on that ledge, run from the fire and feel the longing that was so strong between Lucky and Zack.

I do believe me not loving this book is a classic case of the classic line of “It’s not you, it’s me”. Looking around, most readers and listeners have loved the story of these guys. So if you are a fan of this series and these authors and narrator ignore me and enjoy the story to the fullest.

Awesome series 💜

I really enjoyed this book. It was longer and really delved into the life of the two MC’s. The story just kept building and we got such well rounded characters. We still got to have the past characters in the series too....so good. These two authors can weave a story that just leaves you feeling so many emotions. Don’t miss this series!!!
