As an Air Force medic, Bree Marks saw the worst the War on Terror had to dish out. Now a physical therapist, she uses her experience to help other veterans heal from their physical wounds; while she battles her own emotional damage.
Blaming himself for his best friend’s suicide, former Army Ranger Jase Larken, retreated from life. To honor his best friend’s memory and assuage his guilt, he started an outdoor adventure company to help veterans with PTSD.
Bree had better things to do than catch her cheating fiance in bed with another woman. Jase is something better – for a night at least. For the first time in years, Jase wanted more. When he finds her again, he doesn’t give her another chance to run.
Jase’s protectiveness grates on Bree’s independent nature. She’s dealt with her fair share of alpha-male, door kickers and doesn’t need one telling her what to do now. But as a new danger emerges, Bree and Jase must face their pasts, before someone’s obsession with Bree destroys any chance they have of a future.
Can be read as a stand alone. No cliffhangers within the story.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased this audio book.
First up, I am a narration snob. I admit it. I am picky and picky and even picky about my voices. Ya’ll Hayden’s voice was THE BEST!! Seriously she brought the characters to life. She read the snide comments that were written with just the right attitude and sass. For real….In love I am with her narration.
I grabbed this book because I had audio credits to burn. I admit I was shallow when I saw the cover. Don’t judge we have all stopped for a pretty cover. Anywho, I then read the blub and was like hrmmmmm lets give it a whirl.
I am so dang glad I did. I was laughing so hard at scenes because Denise and Bree are totally me and my bestie. I was also fanning myself because ….. JASE….MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Its gonna take a lot for me to dump him as my book boyfriend……for this series at least. #BookWhore
I loved that fact this book was military but not so over my head military I was lost. I loved that the characters all understand what it is like to return home after service trying to find a new normal after all they saw and witnessed while in service. I loved the teasing of which branch you served in. I loved the comradery they all had.
Jase and Bree meet at a bar. Bree had just tossed her fiancé and his side piece out when she decided to drink her sorrows away with her bestie. After an amazing night with Mr. Walking Orgasm she slips out the door. Jase is not happy because he finally felt a connection. He is going crazy and then she just shows up in his life again. Mr. Super Alpha grabs her and won’t let her go. Literally he grabbed her and it was hysterical!
I thought the story of the two of them dealing with falling in love and falling so fast was freaking them out. I loved they knew what the other was dealing with. I loved that Bree kicks Jase’s ass but Jase also is there to hold Bree when she falls apart.
The mystery of the story is that someone is harming people for hurting Bree. I thought I knew the who and when we find out the why, it made my heart sad. Menta Health is a serious issue and I loved how respectfully this was dealt with throughout the book.
I am super pumped for Denise and Chris. This is going to be a crazy ride!
Tarina has spent her entire life in and around the military – first as a dependent and then as an enlisted Air Force member.
She writes contemporary and military romance about strong women and the men strong enough to love them. She draws heavily from her own military experience to create authentic characters who face real personal challenges.
Tarina is still active duty and a single mom of six-year-old twins. Her favorite hobby is sleep. She has delusions of retiring from the military and being a stay-at-home mom and full-time writer.
