Will I continue this series? Yes
To be honest I've only had the experience of audiobook with this series, and I already have the next one, titled Ghost, on audio too. Tracy Marks does an exceptional job with the accents in this series, without going over the top and just making it so you can't understand what's being said.
All the players from Crow are back and the timeline for this is generally the same as the first book. The dream/nightmare sequences with Ronin are intense and tortuous to say the least, but they help paint a picture of who the Reaper is. For me, he makes this story worthwhile, despite not really liking mobster romance novels. Ashleigh Zavarelli, has so far, done a good job of making me rethink how I feel about them.
Sex Factor: Yes, very explicit…but somewhat unique because of Ronin's circumstances.
