Serial: Timber Towers #5
Pub. Date: Aug. 25, 2015
Derek Block needs to protect those he cares about.
Frankie Jordan fears the loss of those she loves.
Darkness drives them.
But could it drive them apart?
This was a good culmination to the Unblocked serial. Frankie and Derek are finally "together together" in this episode so we don't have that hot and cold drama between them. Some of that is okay but I am always happy when its over and the couple can start building something. And I really like Derek and Frankie as a couple... I think he will be my favorite non-paranormal book boyfriend of the year. He was a man's man, wearing flannel and working with wood, taking charge in the bedroom and being supportive when Frankie needed him. You can't complain about any of that.
The secondary storyline with Randy White plays out in this episode and its great to see that scumball get his just desserts. There were some unexpected events that took place, and it was nice to see Derek and Frankie support one another through them. There was also a little nugget revealed about Will in this episode that I was not expecting. So it was nice to be surprised more than once in such a short story. And the few additional tidbits we got about Brea made me excited to read her spinoff story (coming soon!).
I received an advanced copy of this episode in exchange for an honest review.
