COMBATIVE (BOOK 1) ON SALE FOR 99c
Oh man where do I even start with this review?! I picked up this book right after finishing Combative and figured that it was gonna pick up where Combative left off. Well I was wrong Jay McLean took a leap and went backwards with this and instead we get to know Nate Deluca, let’s say for all intents and purposes he was the villain in Combative. We meet him six years before Kyler does in Combative. We see where he crosses paths with people Ky knows but we’re getting his story as well as Bailey’s. This confused me at first but I caught on and thought oh my god this is brilliant! I give kudos to Jay for going this route, she almost created more questions than she answered but this story was so compelling. That even though it didn’t pick up right where I thought it was going to, I had to read this book either way. I had to, no needed to get to know Nate and Bailey. I needed to see where these characters lives were headed and what set them on the paths that they were on! Jay again made me fall in love with ALL her characters! Every single one she writes in all her books always play such a pivotal role in her books, even if you think they’re just a side characters. I’m actually just in awe and shock! I NEED more!!! It can’t have ended the way that it did, I just gah!!!!! #cliffhangers!!!!!
P.s again I had one issue with the book and it has to do with the order of how things work with diabetics. I’ve been taking care of people with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes for years and 1) you test their blood sugar before you administer their insulin, as well as calculate the carbs they’re gonna eat because that determines the amount of insulin they will either inject or tell their pump to give them.
2) unopened vials of insulin are stored in the fridge, once open they need to be in a temperature controlled environment. My issue is that her meds were kept in the bathroom. It confuses me because they make it sound like she’s getting injections but if she’s using a pen to administer her meds than it’s not as strict about needing to be in the fridge. So maybe just some clarification as to what exactly she’s using.
