Travis Rhodes

Title: Travis Rhodes

Genre: {M/M}, Paranormal, Series

Literary Nymph Reviewer: Critter Nymph 

While Travis loves being a warrior, he’s lonely and can’t wait till he meets his mate.  He’s surprised when the doorbell rings and his mate is standing there looking for someone else.  Emmett can’t stay with his pimp any longer and hopes Damian is still willing to help him.  When he gets to the address he was given, he’s surprised to find out that not only is Damian not there, but the sexist man he’s ever seen is standing before him. 

Travis Rhodes is the fourth book in the Beyond the Marius Brothers series and tells the story of two characters that have shown up before.   I liked this pairing and the way that Travis was able to overlook Emmett’s occupation.  There is the instant connection between the men that fans of Ms. Flynn have come to expect in her books.  The chemistry between them is strong and the way that Emmett reveals that he knows about vampires really sets things off.  While the men may have hit it off from the beginning, they have a lot to overcome.   The obstacles the author throws in the men’s way are intense with many surprising turns.   The difficulties they face don’t always bring out the good in Travis and Emmett and, while I could understand their actions at times, I wanted to smack both of them, especially Travis.   

I really liked this story and enjoyed the way the author has brought various Marius’ into this series as secondary characters.  Since both series share a plot line, I would strongly suggest that you read both the Marius Brothers and Beyond the Marius Brothers in order to keep from getting lost.
