For all of us that wanted more of Burt and Ernie from the Fish Out of Water series, this is a gift! This 4th story runs simultaneously along with the events of book 3- A Few Good Fish.
From the perspective of Burt and Ernie, the reader gets to see their love story develop, as well as their unique perspectives on the fantastic adventures of Ellery and Rivers. Ernie is special, psychic, yes, but also a really special human being. The only thing bigger than his powers, is his heart, and that heart decides that a slightly stubborn special ops soldier is his. Burton is the one that has to navigate his special ops duties, being undercover with some truly vile human beings, and figuring out that he needs Ernie as much as he needs to breathe.
The cast of characters around these two are the same fantastic men we have grown to love in previous books. Ace and Sonny, Jai, Ellery and Rivers. This book weaves together the brittle edges, the jagged pieces, the poetry, and the fragility of love to make a crazy quilt of a family. None of these men are simple. They are complicated souls doing the best they can in the gray areas.
Even knowing the outcome, Amy Lane still brings the reader in and gets you so invested in these characters. I wanted to reach through the story so many times and hug these broken boys. This whole series is amazing, and this book is the cherry on top!
