Books #1 and #2 in the Silence series have been about
Oakley Benson, and now in Book #3 we meet
Oakley's brother Jasper. Jasper Dane has always
tried to live up to the expectation of protecting his family, more so with what
happened to his sister Oakley and as he grew older, he put away his playboy
ways. Jasper married his college sweetheart Abby Dane, though life wasn't always roses as she cheated on him in
college and slept with his best friend. Jasper decided to forgive Abby, and they went on to marry one another.
Life has been good or, so Jasper thought
with Abby getting her career on track. That is until he realizes that their relationship hasn't been as solid lately and
Abby is always working late or canceling
on them to go out with her work colleagues. Jasper starts to get worried and
suspicious that Abby is cheating on him.
One thing leads to another and on a whim Jasper plans a romantic surprise weekend away, though it will be him
who gets a surprise when he catches Abby with a co-worker. Needing time to
chill, Jasper goes and gets drunk and ends up sleeping with Holly - his
friend's sister. Next thing we know,
Abby is back saying she is pregnant. Will Jasper take Abby back now she
is pregnant? What will happen though when
his one-night stand ends with the same result? Is Jasper the father of both babies or
just one? Will this mean he will finally
get the family he has always wanted, but with which woman? As a fan of Cocktail Sausages, I thought that this book
would be like a romantic comedy due to the title - however it isn't. Players, Bumps,
and Cocktail Sausages is one big cluster of family and friendship drama with
the odd funny moment.
After reading Book #3,
though the Silence series can be read as standalone I am looking forward to reading
Books 1 and 2.
