Review: King Hunt by Layla Reyne (Perfect Play #3)
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
After eight months of waiting (im)patiently, the third and final Perfect Play is out in the wild, and Layla Reyne did NOT disappoint, what with striking that precarious yet oh-so-perfect balance of romance and suspense and wrapping everything quite nicely. King Hunt picks up where Bad Bishop left off, and for anyone out there who has yet to read this trilogy, you do need to read the books in order--Dead Draw, Bad Bishop, and King Hunt--since it features a continuing story line and the same main characters throughout.
Time is ticking away as Agents (and husbands) Emmitt Marshall and Levi Bishop try to stay several steps ahead of the criminal enterprise they've been intent on shutting down for what feels like forever. There's a lot at risk, but they know there isn't room to second guess each move they make. Too much is at stake, and at the end of it all, Marsh and Levi simply want to return to their son and their home. In order to do that, sacrifices must be made, but will it cost much more than Marsh and Levi were prepared to put on the line?
Don't you just love it when a trilogy remains consistent from start to finish, not suffering from the typical dip in the middle? Layla Reyne does justice to both her story and main characters with strong writing and intense storytelling and development. Marsh and Levi are passionate men, both when it comes to the job they've dedicated themselves to and to the family they've built in a short amount of time. The cameos from well-loved characters was a bonus, but this series truly was all about Marsh and Levi. Five stars for King Hunt.
