Argggh reading this series is like watching a top uality action adventure show and having to wait three months when they go on hiatus for the summer breakUsually cliff hangers drive me nuts but there's something about this load of books which means it's just a part of the reading experience each book slowly adding another layer to the overall story arcI totally love Sam and Declan and in this one they're now uietly married and seriously testing the boundaries of trust as Sam continues to recover from his devastating injuries and the events of book threeDeclan's hiding secrets of his own and I must admit to cheering just a wee bit when he has a talk with Sir James and gives Sam's father a taste of his own medicineThe plot is getting complex and I'm dying to know where it's going next and the blurb for book five really has me desperately waiting for release day#ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review

Set after Return to Zero Shatterproof Bond book #3After the devastating events in the Scottish Highlands Sam and Declan have moved on to a new deeper level in their romance Their commitment to each other is unuestionable; however there are plenty of uestions that need answering about other aspects of their lives and those who sought to end themSam is trying his best to deal with the. Picking up where Return to Zero left off Sam is recovering from injuries sustained by his nemesis and Declan wonderful supportive partner that he is is also working to expand his skill set Bonus the interesting collection of side characters continues to grow as the plot thickensI’m a sucker for established couple romances and the further we get into this series the sweeter and compelling Sam and Declan’s relationship becomes That scene where they're repeating their vows is stunning I’m also loving the way Isobel Starling is building the tension in the plot the scene with Sam interviewing Madsson is spectacularWhile the Shatterproof Bond series itself is fantastic I must give credit to narrator Gary Furlong Every aspect of this story between the increasing intimacy between Sam and Declan as well as the mounting intensity of the mystery is enhanced by Mr Furlong’s stunning performance His talent for accents and voices continues to amaze meIt’s been a little than a year since the release of the audiobook edition Counterblow Fingers crossed Ms Starling plans to issue the rest of the series in audio as well I’m just not sure I can wait to find out what happens in Powder Burns an audiobook copy of Counterblow was provided by the author for the purpose of my review
