Time and miles separate the couples of this series but that doesn’t mean they and their families haven’t remained close. When Trace’s adult daughter, Harley, is kidnapped, the men rally together and they race to Indiana to participate in her search and rescue attempt. The rescue in the wilderness is harder and more dangerous than any of the men anticipate, but Kieran, Jubilee, Nicholas, Sean, Sam and Marco are determined to bring Harley home unharmed.  After Harley is rescued the strong bonds between the men have only deepened and yet another couple moves to Canada to start the next phase of their life.

Reunited in the newest release in the Texas Orgasmic Dawn series and it’s also the last. You need to have read a few of the other books or I’m afraid the close relationships will confuse you.

A few weeks ago when I realized Reunited would be the last book in the series, I wondered how the authors would end it. I couldn't imagine how they could convincingly pull the couples together when they were living in two different countries. Using the kidnapping of Trace’s daughter, a young woman they all considered family, is the perfect answer. A.J. Llewellyn & D.J. Manly nailed it and grabbed me with a plot I could care about.

The authors caught me by surprise in the beginning because it’s a scene of everyday life. It’s so normal. You have no idea that the bottom is about to drop out of their lives with Harley’s kidnapping, sending them scrambling back to the US to help their friends. It’s just one of many twists that bonds the couples closer together and propels the story forward as the danger mounts.

Kieran, Jubilee, Nicholas, Sean, Sam and Marco are all great, as usual, and we even get to learn a few new tidbits about them. So even here at the series end, their personalities and relationships are still growing and changing. The premise is believable, the imagery well defined and the villain a real nut-job. And even if the rescue is a bit abrupt, it still works. 

At the end, Harley’s safe, as we knew she would be. I can’t think of a single dangling thread and everyone is happy with their lives. Yes, you’ll find a few other surprises but that would be telling (and my lips are sealed), so read this entertaining series ending book for yourself. I hope you enjoy it. I bid this series a fond farewell.
