Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

I am enjoying Rebecca Brooke writing style. Yes, she draws you into the story makes everything so real like you are their fighting their battles with them and wanting to shake the ever-loving crap out of some of them at times. I was laughing at times, cried others, my heart sunk and at times it found its way to my throat. The drama and battles on the battlefield and at home were so real and frustrating at times.

Colin is a Ranger in the Army. It’s what he is and will always be. He knows nothing else and wants to be nothing else. He watched his best friend die doing what they loved and now he is left to deal with everything on his own knowing if he talks to anyone about the nightmares his career will be over. One night he meet a woman whit beautiful blue eyes but knowing he will be leaving on tour he walks away because making her wait 3 months before seeing her again is not fair, until he sees her at the camp when he arrives.

Joey is a pilot for the Army. She loves what she does and has the spirit to go with it. She is tired of putting her heart out there only to have guys walk away when they find out her job. Until she meets Colin they spend time together and then the unthinkable happens and their black hawk does down now they have to fight for what they want to get back to their jobs and each other. Is it possible or will it be too much.

The support system they have when they are dealing with everything is amazing. I love Daniele, tanner and Greg as much as Colin and Joey. When Colin hits rock bottom and boy does he hit rock bottom in a big way, who will be there to help him climb to the top again. He has pushed everyone away not only Joey but Danielle, Greg and Tanner. Can he overcome the destruction in his path or will he prevail and who will be left standing by his side?

I am a sucker for the real life tell it like it is military book. Joey is a strong tell it as she sees it kind of woman. I absolutely loved watching Joey and Colin’s friendship grow and my heart broke for Joey each time Colin pushed her away. The way all of them came together more as a family than friends showed the true life of a military family. Great story line, excellent drama, and I need more. I just found our Rebecca has a cook about Daniele, Nate and Tanner story you better believe I will be checking that out.
