#WOTR22 #NewRelease #Military #FriendsToLovers #2ndChance – Thistle Tattoo by Tricia Andersen

Can Morgan’s love save Rhett from himself?
Death seems like the only answer for Rhett. The nightmares of a war he left behind keeps him from sleeping and pushes him closer to the edge. Moments before he can take his own life, however, his high school best friend, Morgan, shows up at his motel door in all her purple haired glory. She offers him a place to live in her apartment, a job at her tattoo parlor and a new chance at life. Can he put aside the feelings that he’s had for her since they were teenagers, or will his PTSD push her away like everyone else?
Morgan would do anything to keep Rhett safe. She brings him into her home, takes care of him and hires him to work for her in her shop. While she tells herself that it’s because he’s her best friend, she knows that it is more than that. She has loved him from the beginning., from the moment she began tutoring him in the school library. Can she hang on to him through the violent mood swings, the sneaky ex-finance who tries to win him back, everything else that tries to pull them apart or will she lose him forever?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

I read this book when it was in an anthology.  I was excited when Tricia said she was expanding the story of Rhett and Morgan.  The anthology short story was good but the expansion was even better.

Rhett and Morgan were high school “friends”.  She was the nerd hired to tutor the high school jock.  They didn’t realize how in love they had fallen but high school being high school neither would face the music of friends for being with the other so they stayed silent with their longing.

Fast forward to Morgan saving Rhett from the darkest place he could imagine being after the War.  Rhett has serious PTSD and Morgan is all in for saving her friend and the man of her dreams.

Rhett and Morgan have a lot to deal with between her admirers and his ex-fiancée. Plus, they have to deal with his mental health from the war. The scars he carries are traumatic.  They have some blurring of boundaries and looking at what they want.

When Rhett and Morgan finally admit what they want they story is amazing and then another twist I didn’t see coming.  I was so invested in the couple and loved every chapter of the book,  I would have loved even a few more…..
