THE FISHER MEN ON THE X is book 3 in the series and is listed as a stand-alone. I really recommend reading the first two books in the series before this one. I read books 1 and 2 a bit ago and it took me until about 50% through to not feel unsettled and like I was only seeing parts of the story. Don’t get me wrong, the story in Book 3 is fantastic, it was just all the other characters and back stories that kept me on my toes. It is told in a dual POV with minimum flashbacks to set the stage. The story moves at a pretty good pace and I love that the roles are reversed and supported as much as if they were gender normative.
This is Zach Fisher’s story and as I was reading, it felt like I’d read his character before. Something about the way he tattoos with his tongue out. Well of course I’d read this before because his twin was in Book 1 and describes the motion. THAT’S I mean about how it was a little tough to piece together for a while.
The healing that takes place in this story is breathtaking. The respect given to the entire process. These are my favorite quotes in the story:
“There is value in every person who graces your life, even if it’s for the briefest of moments.”
“I survived before I could live, so this is nothing.”
This book was so movingly beautiful in certain scenes – I cried; Other times I chuckled.
Xander was book 1
Connor was book 2
Zach was book 3
Morgan is going to be book 4
I will go back and at least peruse the first 3 before I pick up book 4.
