The Mystic Caravan crew have arrived in Ohio. It’s not the most loved stop on their tour as nothing ever happens in Ohio. That is, until their first night is plagued with a murder of one of their own. Team that with Luke not being able to wake himself up out of a strange dream and Poet is worried. They soon find that there is more happening than what meets the eye. This leads them to check out a local bar just through the woods that is home to a bunch of bikers, and Luke meeting a good looking guy who seems to be hiding some secrets of his own. This time the men of Mystic Caravan are protecting the women, and possibly Luke as they uncover what it is they’re dealing with. It’s going to be a bumpy ride, but they’re ready.

I have to say, this series has fast become one of my favourites. I wasn’t too sure how much I like it in the beginning book or two, but it didn’t take long. Now I’m jumping for joy every time I see that there’s a new release for the series. It was exactly that way for this one, even though it’s just a short story, I still got stupidly excited. Team that with the fact that it’s written from Luke’s point of view (Poet’s best friend), and I was even more keen to get my little hands on it.

Luke has a tendency to annoy me a bit in the main series, as he’s whiny and needy and clingy and shitty that Poet is now dating security stud muffin Kade. Kade annoys the absolute tripe out of me with his macho ‘I need to protect you because I’m the man’ shtick he’s got going on, but that’s a rant for another time. So being able to read a story from Luke’s point of view had me intrigued. Was he going to piss me off to no end even though I was privy to his thought patterns and such? The answer is…no, he didn’t. I think I actually will continue through the rest of this series understanding Luke that little bit more now that I’ve read this. Tune in to my review of the next full length novel in the series to see if that’s the case. It was nice being privy to the inner monologues and workings of Luke for a change, I think it made him way less annoying knowing where his outbursts and whiny nature was coming from. To be honest, I also saw Poet as a totally different character NOT being in her head…she annoyed me a little less as well. As for Kade, he was just as annoying and I don’t think I’ll ever be that fond of him to be honest. He has his perks, but for the most part he’s mister “I’ll protect you” even though NO-ONE was asking him to.

The story itself was interesting and I enjoyed the little caper that we got to follow the crew on. The synopsis on here tells you what the gang are dealing with, but I’ve been trying to avoid going THAT much into detail as I didn’t even remember the synopsis so got to work it out for myself as I read.

I’m incredibly interested in a new character that we meet, that being Cole. And I’m super intrigued to see where the story goes from here. I’m hoping that Cole is a recurring character because I think he’ll add something to the continuing story and I’m keen to see this other dimension.

That’s all I’m going to say about this one as it’s so short. I don’t want to go into too much detail. Oh and as always, Nellie is an absolutely freaking delight and he’s up there as one of my fav’s in this series for sure.
