The desire to be loved isn’t my only secret.
My wife is missing.

She’s invading my thoughts and my heart, driving me insane with her beauty and vulnerability.
I want her.
She’s barely legal and my wife’s daughter.
Forbidden and morally wrong.
I can’t have her. I can’t.
My son, though, doesn’t live by the same code I do.

But not to love…to destroy.
I’ll risk everything to keep him from her.
Even if this tangle of awful costs me my reputation, my campaign, and my son.

Today’s offering is the last book in the Hughes set of books by Skye Warren. Three to Get Ready is the finale of Eva and Finn’s story. While they are their own story, they are also part of the Morelli world. You don’t have to have read the other Morelli books to know what’s going on with Eva and Finn, you just have to have read the other two books in this group. There are likely to be spoilers because each book picks up right where the last one ended up, so if you want to avoid spoilers, skip this post until you go read the book and then come back.
Eva and Finn are currently dealing with all of Finn’s secrets coming out. His dad showed up at the office at a very inopportune time. When he showed up, his dementia was in full force, so all of the C-suite people found out that he was not all there. That, of course, sent the business into a tailspin. At the same time, the information that Eva is pregnant leaked so they’re dealing with all kinds of crises at once.
The Morellis are in one place trying to deal with the fallout, their answer is basically tell everybody no comment and fuck them all. Finn is elsewhere trying to figure out what to do for his business, and he’s being pushed to do all kinds of PR about it. Frankly, I think that Eva has the better idea. She’s just going to brazen it all out. Luckily, Finn and Eva get together and have a discussion about what to do and they come to an agreement.
Of course, the second they come to the agreement other things happen. Those events change Finn’s perspective, and he decides he’s going to handle the rest of his life in a very different manner than his father did and in a different way than what his father made him promise to do.
I still really like Eva. I think that she is an incredibly strong character. She has been handed all of this stuff, and yet she manages to gracefully handle it. Of course it helps that she’s been managing Morelli scandals for years, and this is relatively minor compared to some of the other stuff, but it is still a big deal. I think that makes sense. At least, it made sense in my head. I think there are a few times where she is a little overly optimistic about what’s to come and what’s going to happen. But, I kind of don’t blame her for that, I think I would behave the same and think the same in her situation so there’s that.
Finn has frustrated me on and off through this whole series. His fatalistic attitude kind of made me want to smack him sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I understand where that fatalism is coming from, but it’s annoying. But, it does get better in this book and he’s not quite as fatalistic.
This was an interesting trio, and I really did like Eva and Finn. So, go check out the book. Happy reading!
There’s a ticking time bomb over Finn Hughes’s head. That means he has to prepare everyone. Eva. The baby. The company, which is in an uproar after the announcement. He needs to get them ready. Because when the curse hits, it will be too late to say goodbye.

Okay, so yeah, I said that I would update once a week at least, but I didn’t last week. That’s because I was doing special projects for work, and that took up all of my puny brain power. On the other hand, it meant I made more money, so you know, priorities. Then we had three storms in 6 days, which meant 20 plus inches of snow in those six days, and now we’re gearing up for some really cold weather for Friday and Saturday. Now, I live in the Great White North of the US, so I am used to cold weather, but my house is heated by a heat pump, which it doesn’t work as well when you get down to 10°, and we’re looking at -20 Fahrenheit which for you civilized people is -28. That’s not counting the wind chill, which is supposed to get down into the negative 50s, which again for civilized people, is- 45. So yeah, it’s going to be cold and I have chili that I’ll be making in the Crock-Pot and ham and beans that will be making in the other Crock-Pot, and stew at some point. But none of that is really pertinent to today’s book.
Today’s book is Capricorn, by E. J. Frost. Now this book has an interesting position. It is part of the Masters of the Zodiac series, which is a shared world series. It is also a spin-off/continuation/sequel/something, to the Teddy’s Boys books. I am not 100% sure on how to classify it. It does contain all the the main characters from the Teddy books, but they aren’t the main focus. The Mr Black, Evan Lord, from the book is, along with his baby girl Rachel. But, you know how Teddy and her boys are, they do push their way in quite well. There will be some possible spoilers for Teddy’s books in this, so be aware.
Capricorn starts 7 years after Quaternion. Evan is in wizarding jail, for something he may or may not have done. Evan was Rachel’s Daddy, but he released her when he was in prison. However, that hasn’t stopped her from writing him letters. On this particular day, Evan gets called into the warden’s office where a Fae prince is waiting for him. It turns out that Evan is now being released.
When Evan gets released, he ends up going to the Capricorns. It is a special club for those people who were born in the Capricorn star sign. The Capricorns are in charge of protecting the ley lines. Problem is, several members of the Capricorn have been murdered. When Evan gets there, it turns out he is now the leader of the Capricorns, and has to figure out who did the killing. So yeah he’s going to be busy. He ends up staying in fairy with Teddy, her three husbands, their children, and Rachel. And oh yeah, the king occasionally shows up, and for occasionally understand all the time. Evan tries to either forget that he was Rachel’s Daddy or try and become her Daddy again. While Rachel wants it, she is also now a fairy Knight, with a sword and all. She has also become a bit bratty.
So, Evan and Rachel go out to figure out what the problem is. They, of course, run into a lot of issues. And Evan gets to watch Rachel fight and enjoy how good she is at that. They also manage to work through their issues and get their relationship back on track.
This is as far as I’m going to go and describing the book, because if I go much further I will be getting into the meat of everything. There are so many things I like about this book though.
I like the place where Rachel is. She has undergone a lot of stuff since we met her at Bevington, and most of that she did, not quite on her own, but without the rock that Evan had become for her. She always had Teddy, they have become really sisters. But that is different from having her Daddy with her. But she has really grown, and become stronger, physically, emotionally, and mentally. She knows exactly what she wants and she will go out and get it.
I think that Evan starts out on the back foot. As far as I can tell the book takes place in current year. So he’s gone from let’s say 2015 to all of a sudden 2022. Imagine how much difference we’ve seen in 7 years, and all of a sudden he gets all of that. There are a few lines in the book about people wearing masks all the time, so you know, plague. But even without the plague, there have been a lot of changes going on, including Rachel transitioning from a young woman to a fully fledged and realized adult. It takes him a minute to figure out everything. And he’s got this new leadership of the Capricorns and all these murders that he has to figure out all at once. So, it’s no wonder why he’s a little confused sometimes.
But, even with saying all of that, he catches up to everything fairly quickly, and figures out what he needs to do. Of course, it does take some help from everyone, but he is more than willing to take that help.
The climax of the book really got to me. I was impressed with what happened, and saddened by it. And I think that I will carry parts of that along with me for a while.
Okay, that is all for this one. I recommend that you go check it out. You can probably enjoy it without having read Teddy’s Boys, but you will enjoy it better if you have. Happy reading!
