En Prise, is the third book in the Chess Series by Sean Michael, in this book things are starting to settle after dealing with his feelings towards Rook and finally accepting that he can be special, very special to Rook spite the fact that he also loves two other men, sunk in Jason is finally relaxing. He’s still Knight’s shy baby boy, Rook’s honey and Bishop’s entrusted friend. I think for the first time since the series started you get to see that Bishop sees that he finally has someone who can take over the driver's seat for him from time to time so he can just be or break apart.
En Prise starts out with Christmas around the corner, with love in the air, with four men finding their happy in each other. It’s easy and all about feeling good, enjoying each other until what shouldn’t happen happens and Knight is in an accident and is severely hurt. Everyone panics, everyone is shell shocked besides Jason. He starts proving that he is the man who instead of freezing up in a time of need he gets active, to the relief of Bishop and Rook who needs someone to be strong for the both of them, the three of them really.
It is when this happens, Sean Michael, is in his best game. Where he can write his smutty novels and still bring a solid, warm, and yet angst filled story to the table. The characters are well developed and their own individual, and foremost there is a great story that brings them all together. Here it is not only the “drama” to have four men finding a mutual ground and showing whether or not four people can have a workable relationship, but it is about real life dramas things that can happen to either of us or the people that we love. The readers can easily relate to the idea of getting that phone call from the police or hospital telling them one of the people they love have been in an accident. It is isn’t something small and random it is something very real and heartbreaking.
Sean Michaels four Chess men are very real and very human, their story together just as real. You connect easily with them and personally I can sympathize with all the characters at one or another time. In En Prise, these four men’s love is tested and reading it the first time you become very aware of the fact that the test will continue on in the next book.

Saving Sean, the second book of the Caddo Norse Novels is far from due but for those of you who are waiting here's a teaser:
“Son wait we don’t know anything we can’t go out there blind.”
“I don’t care dad. I need to find him. He’s out there alone, probably scared. He needs me!” Reid growled tearing his arm away from his father’s grip.
He was ready to walk back out there, to shift and find him when Coleman stepped in front of him grabbing him by the shoulders keeping him from going. “Son I understand this hard for you. Being away from your mate.” His head snapped up looking at his father.
“I’m old but not that old. My sense of smell and eyesight is pretty damn fantastic still if I may say so myself.” He smiled, Reid staring at him, worry taking over his mind and body. He whimpered.
“Pops I have to find him. I can’t just stand here I need to go search.” His body trembling from the urge to shift, his wolf pushing him to go find their mate. He wanted to growl when no one reacted. What the hell was wrong with them.
“We should let him go pops. I’ll go with him.” He looked at his brother gratefully. Ha someone was at least on his side.
“If you are going I am going.” Haven stood up with Maya still in his arms clinging to him. “You are going no where without me.” Alex didn’t argue instead he nodded. It was easy to see they were communicating through their link. OK so could the go already. Reid was getting impatient, his wolf was already tearing a hole inside of him for his lack of action.
“I don’t know about this…” Coleman said with a deep frown. Reid roared out loud so damn frustrated he was about to rip someone’s throat out, the younger children whimper and hid behind the adults, afraid of him. But he didn’t care at that point. Sean was out there alone and they were standing here talking. He was done!
“Calm and easy brother.” Alex’s voice was smooth but demandingly clear for him to back down and take it easy before he scare the little ones to death. He forced himself to lowered his eyes baring his neck immediately giving him a silent apology. He didn’t need to start a struggle or fight with anyone now he just wanted to go. Sean was out there alone in the claws of a beast didn’t they fucking get it! Alone! His mate. If it had been Haven Alex would have torn up heaven and hell to find him. Asshole! He bared his teeth growling low, looking at his brother underneath his lashes not standing down this time.
