Review Dray (Custom Culture #3) By Tess Oliver

Title: Dray
Series: Custom Culture
Author: Tess Oliver
Pages: 264

When Cassie, the woman he loves, leaves him for a job in New York, Dray Warner finds his life falling apart. With nothing else to lose he takes up his friend, Barrett Mason’s, offer to head down to Mexico for some surfing and good times. But Dray’s conscience, hot temper and extreme fighting skills hurl him into a world of danger . . . a danger that could cost him his life.

Cassie Carlton was sure she was making the right decision accepting her dream job in New York. She and Dray had parted ways and while she remains heartbroken by the break up, she needs to move on with her life. But when Cassie learns that Dray is in trouble, she realizes she will sacrifice anything to save him.


Let me first say that if you've read Freefall and didn't like it that much or it wasn't your cup of tea don't give up on the series because Dray's story is much much better. 

Dray has lived a hard life. With an abusive father and and a neglectful mother, he was raised in his bestfriends', Nix and Clutch's homesteads. He is an amateur mma fighter who has a really short fuse which usually means he ends up in trouble. 

Cassie fell in love with Dray the first moment she met him at Freefall. She's spent years pining after him and finally Dray comes to his senses and notices Cassie. These two were in love but Cassie was offered a very good photography job all the way in NY while the Freefall gang live in California. Dray decides to let Cassie go and not stand in the way of her dream. Little does he know, he is all she wants. So with a bitter heart and broken love Cassie goes off NY and leaves Dray behind. Dray then starts hanging around with Rett, Clutch's playboy brother and the two find themselves in an awful predicament in Mexico. Cassie soon finds out Dray is in trouble and rushes to his aid. 

So here it goes, the story is full of action, drama and angst. I love Dray, he is this guy who had a really crappy upbringing yet, he is very honorable, decent and loyal to a fault when it comes to his friends. He doesn't take sh*t from anyone and he doesn't have to.. he just end up knocking them out. ;) The problem is he never lets anyone in..except for Cassie but when it came time to admit to himself and her that he couldn't live without her, his pride wins. Cassie has had enough, she's not asking much, she just wants Dray to let her in. I also must say, Rett is hilarious he's such a playboy you wanna hate him, but yes, he is very much like a lost puppy dog. :)) I can't wait for his book to be out. :) The only thing I didn't enjoy about this book was their reunion, I found it very anticlimactic, for me it wasn't a big point in the book. But, overall I will say Dray is my favorite in the Custom Culture series. I am very much looking forward to Rett's book I think that would be very interesting.;)
