REVIEW – DESTRUCTIVE (Combative, #3) by Jay McLean


Some villains are made.
Some villains are born.
And some villains aren’t villains at all.

Nate DeLuca was born into a life he didn’t want.
Forced to walk a path that was already chosen for him.
Grandson to a mob boss, he’s forever torn between his duty, his honor, his legacy, and the truth.
But the truth is never simple, and it’s not at all what it seems.

In a world full of secrets, heartache, and betrayals, Nate only has one thing on his mind: redemption.
But with redemption comes destruction.
And that destruction might cost him his heart.
Three Lives.
Two Loves.
One ticking time bomb…
Tick tock.

I walk away, fighting against my craving to be near her. Because my mind knows it as much as my heart does…that I’d rather die a thousand deaths beside her than live a single day without.




”DESTRUCTIVE”, the third and final installment of Jay McLean’s ”Combative” series, was gut-wrenchingly angsty, and at times I wanted to step away from it for fear of having my heart shattered into a million pieces. What I can say to those of you who have waited three years to find out what happened after the huge cliffhanger ending of ”REDEMPTIVE” is that you will not be disappointed. I am once again in awe of this amazingly gifted author. I never thought I would enjoy a mafia themed story but this one was absolutely phenomenal and Nate DeLuca is up there as one of my most treasured Jay McLean Heroes. If you haven’t picked up this series yet—now is the time!



All my questions were answered and then some. There’s so much going on in this last installment that you have to pay close attention or you could end up missing some important clues.




Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5+++++++
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5+++++++
Angst: 5+++++
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

”DESTRUCTIVE” releases on January 6th! This is yet another Jay McLean series that is sure to be a hit with all of her loyal fans.
