Gunner: An Eidolon Black Ops Novel by Maddie Wade – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

Gunner (Eidolon Black Ops #6)Gunner by Maddie Wade
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gunner is the sixth book in Maddie Wade’s Eidolon Black Ops series. It picks up on established characters and gives them a chance to take centre stage. Gunner and Lacey first met when Lacey was kidnapped by her ex and the Eidolon team rescued her. Since then, Gunner has left Eidolon and the relationship between him and his former brothers is strained. But there’s a chance he could repair the broken trust, and with Lacey moving to England to be closer to Skye and Nate he has plenty of reasons to try.
This is a fast-paced and emotional book. Gunner and Lacey have both been hurt by past experiences and, as the trust between them grows, are able to open up and start to heal. They also have present threats to face, getting tangled up in each other’s dangerous lives.
As well as all the danger and action, this book is very romantic. At times it verges on over-the-top but it works well to balance the darker aspects of the book. There’s a scene early on where Gunner is playing the piano and hears Lacey joining in playing the same piece on a different piano which particularly got me feeling a bit emotional!
Wade does a good job of filling in the backstory for any readers who start with this book, but it really makes more sense to start at the beginning of the series and read the books in order so you can see the characters developing and the larger plotlines develop.
For me, this is a five-star read. If you like an action-packed romance with complex, interesting characters this series should definitely go on your tbr list!
