Cooper (Corps Security #4) by Harper Sloan
Cooper was great but it lack something. It was a little unexpected though. I didn't understand how Harper Sloan was going to write the book since Coop had died in the previous book. However, I was glad Ash got his story and Coop was still very much apart of it. Cooper is told from multiple points of views. I liked how many different people's perspectives the story was told from. It helped make the story a better book. I was a little sad that Maddox wasn't in the book that much. He is my favorite character in the series and I seriously can't wait for the next book LOCKE. I have been dying for his story since the series began.
Ash was super sexy in a dark way. He is still very much dealing with his brother's death. It has always been the two of them against the world and now its just him. He didn't know how to handle it. He drinks and has sex with random women. He really only wants one woman but for some unknown reason they both keep pushing each other away.
Chelcie is the sunshine and Ash's reason to live. She makes everything better. She makes the darkest go away. Chelcie had a one night stand with Ash's brother Coop right before he died and got pregnant. She wants to tell Ash but is afraid he won't understand what was going on between Coop and her. She's afraid Ash will reject her and she doesn't want to deal with that. She is a hormonal pregnant lady that cries more in the book than she actually talks. Everything leads to her crying. She went of some horrible dates in an attempt to get her mind off of Ash but she just ends up comparing the men to Ash every single time. And Dee was purposely setting up those horrible dates so she would realized she wanted Ash and no one could compared to him.
I loved the energy he had with Chelcie. He loved her before he even really knew her. She made him want to live again and be the man he always was. She is the good that he knew existed in the world. He was super protective of her and the baby once he got his head out of his butt and realized Chelcie was his. Chelcie understood Ash and his darkness.
Chelcie eventually tells Ash everything and they finally get together. Ash wants to be there for the baby and Chelcie. He wants her as his woman. After they finally get together the story moves really fast and a lot of stuff start happening. They move in together, get engaged and start planning their future together. I was a little thrown off by the Sarah Jane situation. Ash had talked a little bit about her but he never mentioned she was crazy. I felt like the Sarah Jane stuff was thrown in to make the story. The book would have been pointless if there wasn't some kind of drama in it.
Cooper was still a little sad and heartbreaking for me. I hate how Coop died and I wish didn't. I hate when characters get knock off but I understand why Harper Sloan did it. This book and the story wouldn't have been possible without someone dying.
