Stryder by Maggie Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
STRYDER picks up right where Maddox left off with Stryder and Anson off to a slave auction to purchase Zoya. With her help, they hope to not only identify the other girls and their buyers, but to ultimately take down the man responsible for the annihilation of Adira's family... Vasily Poplov. With the help of Adira's grandfather, the Steele's were able to rescue many women and find them some justice. In the midst of it all, Stryder and Zoya fall in love and plan for a future together.
Once again, the characters and the plot were well-developed and intriguing. Although there was an underlying theme of D/s, it was subtly worked in and didn't take my focus away from the plot. It simply added texture to the relationship between Stryder and Zoya. I especially liked the way the authors created a lead-in for Anson's book and his quest to rescue Natalia.
