Here it is. The review for the last book in the Cole McGinnis series. To celebrate this last book and because Rhys was kind enough to give me an ARC-copy, there is a giveaway at the end of this review!
Dirty Heart is the 6th and final book in the critically acclaimed mystery/suspense Cole McGinnis series. It’s a wicked conclusion to an awesome journey.
Over the course of six books we got to know Cole and Jae and their motley crew of friends, saw them change and grow, get into scrapes, get hurt (Cole more than others; from being chased by dogs to bitten and stabbed and shot), find love and grow into their relationship along with a number of adventures. It was truly an amazing series to read. With Dirty Heart we go back one last time.
To be honest, I was a little afraid to read this book. It was the last book, of course. So I was curious how things were going to be wrapped up, but also a little nervous going to be one big stereotype! And we finally finally get to know what drove Ben. But I needn’t have worried. Like the other books, Dirty Heart was a good, fun, sweet, scary, sad, hilarious read. There is only one Cole McGinnis after all.
I’m not going to tell you much about the plot, because that is something you have to find out on your own. I can tell you that a lot of things happen. There’s a new bad guy. Well, not so new, but it all ties in with the story in the series as a whole. Cole is, in some regards, one unlucky bastard.
On the whole, I thought it was well done. The writing is flowing and balanced and the pace of the story is not too fast, but not too slow either. Cole is up to his witty standards and a lot happens in the story, but not so as to overwhelm the reader or so that you get lost in all that is going on.
The ending was perfect for the story and the series. It fit.
There are a whole lot of things I could say about this story, but if you have read the previous books and enjoyed them as much as I did, then all you need to do is read this story.
