Five Stars- It has heat and sweetness, danger and anger

This is a series ive read at least once before, and i keep coming back to it. It has heat and sweetness, danger and anger, and a bad guy you can really scowl at. Hard. And mean. And then simper with joy at the lovebirds he detests. Ha!
This is the type of series that has you backtalking the characters. Out loud. And only being embarassed that they ignored you. It fills you up until you're bubbly with the feels it pulls from within you.

Five Stars-Sexy times with two well-built men having lots of adventures and an HEA!

The first book in the SHATTERPROOF BOX SET was AS YOU WISH (SHATTERPROOF BOND # 1.) It was light-hearted, whimsical, and very hot! I adored it!

I was eager to read the next two books (ILLUMINATE THE SHADOWS # 2 and RETURN TO ZERO # 3.) Unfortunately, spy stories turn me off so I didn't enjoy them as much. The good thing is though, Isabel Starling is a fantastic author and I am very invested in her characters, Sam and Declan. I can't get enough of them so I will definitely be picking up the next books COUNTERBLOW # 3.5 and POWDER BURNS # 4.) I need to find out how their love story continues.

I also need to find out if Sir James gets his comeuppance. He is a piece of work! He's most likely a psychopath. He has no empathy for anyone even when his son is affected. What a great villain - the kind you love to hate!

Ms. Starling's descriptions of the scenery are very vivid and I could picture the beauty of the highlands, Declan's apartment and James' mansion in London, and the castle in Scotland. I appreciate the detail she depicts in her characters and their surroundings. She's a gifted wordsmith!

Throughout the three books, the love scenes are plentiful and detailed - just the way I like them! There was some cursing when it was warranted but it wasn't overwhelming. If you don't enjoy hearing about sexy times with two well-built men having lots of adventures and an HEA, pick another book.

Five Stars

At first you think it's just another typical GFY story but by the end of book one you know it's anything but typical. There's sexual exploration, secrets and of course hot mm sex wrapped up in one hot box set. Once I started it couldn't put it down.

About the Author

Isobel Starling spent most of her twenty-year professional career making art in Ireland.  She relocated to the UK and, faced with the dreaded artist’s creative block, Isobel started to write and found she loved writing more than making art.

Isobel is currently working on her seventeenth book.  The Shatterproof Bond series is an Amazon Gay Romance bestseller and is being translated into French with Juno Publications, German with Deadsoft Verlag, and Italian with Quixote Edizioni.  The series is also available as audiobooks, narrated by Gary Furlong.

“Fall Together” and “Sweet Thing” will be translated into French by Reines- Beaux Publishing.

Already in audio, narrated by Gomez Pugh, “Silken” is available in German, and will also come out in Italian, and French during 2018.
