Blurb: Rudy and Clay are deeply in love and expecting the birth of their boys thanks to Clay’s twin sister, Clarice. Tragedy strikes, and Rudy and Clay suddenly become parents to not just their twins, but Clarice and Patrick’s three little girls as well.
They desperately need help with the five kids so Rudy hires a ‘manny’, Jackson Frost. But Frost comes with a horrible past. Guilty of betrayal and for almost killing Clay while they were in the military, he is freshly released from prison and desperate for work. The man is definitely not Clay’s first choice as a caregiver for his children.
Strange things begin to happen, leading them to think that Patrick and Clarice were not just randomly attacked. Then Rudy is suddenly kidnapped.
The clock is ticking and despite their past, Jackson and Clay must join forces to find Rudy before he is killed, or worse…
Review: Rudy Klaus-Barnet is more than happy in his new life with his husband, Clay. They’re having a fun time watching their three nieces, April, Jillian and Lizzie, but Rudy and Clay both know they are about to have their hands full with their twin boys. To prepare for the new additions to their family, Rudy has hired Jackson Frost as their manny. Jackson was recommended by Rudy’s lawyer and best friend, but there’s trouble with Clay, as he has reason to dislike Jackson.
When tragedy strikes, Clay is overwhelmed by the loss of his twin, and it causes emotional issues between him and Rudy. A devastating murder investigation becomes more complex, and Rudy is made aware he could very well have some major evidence. Along with the chaos of family, new additions, and funerals, Rudy is kidnapped and falls into the hands of shifter/human traffickers. Rudy has secrets that only a few people know about—if his secrets are ever revealed to the wrong entities, he’s not the only one who will be in danger.
Rudy Two opens with a heartbreaking tragedy and a trafficking ring. There’s all sorts of surprises and secrets, not all of them shared only between Rudy and Clay. There are a lot of heartwarming moments, too, as family comes together to grieve and support one another. I liked the addition of Jackson Frost to the storyline, and I wonder if there will be another installment, as Jackson finds himself with two admirers.
Rudy, the first novel in this series, is full of surprises, and this book is even more creative, with interesting secrets. Terry Poole not only made this entertaining, but she created an interesting mystery with plenty of danger. For those who like shifter stories, I encourage you to give this a novel a try.
