Part & Parcel (Sidewinder #3) by Abigail Roux

Nick O'Flaherty and Kelly Abbott had their happy ending in sight when a friend’s call for help almost ended with them losing it to the blade of a knife. Now, in the aftermath of near-disaster, both men are trying to heal and move on.

Moving on together, though, is harder than either of them realized it would be. Kelly struggles with simply being a lover instead of the Doc, while Nick is mired in his recovery. The distance between them inches along in stilted silence.

Desperately seeking solace, Nick finally gathers the courage to sort through the possessions his dear friend and fellow Sidewinder teammate Elias Sanchez left him when he died. Instead of comforting memories, Nick and Kelly find a stack of letters and strict instructions from Eli that prompt them to send out a call for assistance. With Eli’s letters in hand, Sidewinder sets out on one last mission together, seeking peace and absolution from beyond the grave—and from each other.

My review:
HOLY CATS! This book will twist you up and leave you gasping for breath.  This book unlike the others in the series has no bullets flying, nor knife fights, nor any of that type of action but it is as intense if not more so. Nick and Kelly are dealing with the past so they have an idea of their future. Kelly is struggling with Nicks close call with death and the lies he told to protect them all. Nick is dealing with his mortality and trying not to lose Kelly. While recuperating Nick runs across a letter from his deceased friend and fellow Sidewinder Elias Sanchez. The letter instructs him to get the Sidewinders together and follow his last requests. Doing so gets Owen, Digger, Kelly, Nick and Ty back together and Ty brings along Zane and 2 sweet little kittens. Elias’s instructions are cathartic – sometimes painful sometimes hilarious and in the end maybe just what these guys needed to go on without him.  This book had me at times crying and at others laughing out loud. I loved this book!
