This is another riveting read by Lynette Eason. It is written in a way that draws me into the reality of each scene and has my brain turning with possible solutions to the intricately woven mystery. I enjoyed each of the characters very much—the main characters as much as the side characters.
It is a great suspense read. Lynette deals with some very sickening realities in the book, but in such a way that does not glorify it, but shows the reality of the depravity of some people’s minds.
The whole thread of PTSD was good—as in, it seemed realistic and definitely raised in me a better understanding for the individuals who go through it. I appreciate books that do things like that for me.
The romance was slow-moving and sweet. There were a few kisses mentioned, but nothing beyond that (a hint of someone accusing “middle of the night” activity, but basically in that way).
The spiritual content was woven throughout the entire book in a steady thread, which I appreciate.
This book has left me eager for the rest of the series to be here now!
*I received this book from the publisher and happily provided my honest review*
About the BookHonorably discharged from the Army after an explosion nearly killed her, former military psychiatrist Brooke Adams has set up shop to help others--but her days of helping military personnel are over. She's got her own battles to fight from her time overseas, and she's not equipped to take on more. Former Army Special Ops Sergeant First Class Asher James could handle anything that war sent his way--terrorists, bombs, bullets. The only thing that scares him now is sleep. As the shadows close in, the nightmares begin.
Finally convinced that he needs help, Asher makes an appointment with a counselor, and Brooke is pressed by her boss to take him on. When he arrives at her office she isn't there--but a dead body is. Brooke is devastated when she walks in, and Asher is a conveniently strong shoulder to cry on. But she can't take him on as a client after sharing such an intimate and unprofessional moment, can she? And he's not sure he can handle sharing his deepest fears with such a beautiful woman.
When it becomes clear that Brooke was the real target of the attack--and that her secrets go even deeper than his own--Asher vows to protect her no matter what.
