This very quick story tells the tale of Aled, a botanist student who is tormented by drug runners due to mistaken identity. Wyatt is part of the team that rescues Aled, though Aled suffers terribly from PTSD and actually needs months and months of 'rescue.' Wyatt is an infinitely patient man, being a friend above all else. This is a love story that unfolds over months and years. As they grow closer, they grow funnier with each other (so funny!) but the barrier to physical love takes much longer to fall.
If you have not read any of these books, I highly recommend them. They can all be read as stand-alones but so much better when read in order. They are all very different from each other, as well.
Navy SEALS are on a training exercise with their British counterparts when they identify a small boat in their designated combat zone, an area where there should be no boat. Wyatt, SEAL team leader has been thinking about leaving the Navy and time to move on to other parts of his life, partially due to DADT restrictions. When his ‘spidey’ sense tingled as they drew closer to the out-of-place boat, he had no way to know that this would change his life forever.
Young botanist Aled, on sabbatical from his studies, has been kidnapped and tortured by sea pirates who mistakenly believe he is their drug mule. His physical and emotional scars from the terrible events of his torture and resulting PTSD combine to make him a captive in his own home.
This story is wonderfully written, perfectly paced and deals with a relationship at its most intimate level without sexual intimacy! I don’t remember a more beautiful love story involving the basic themes of hurt and recovery or a more patiently developed relationship. Wyatt’s overwhelming feeling is that Aled is “his botanist” no matter how long it takes, how many years, and that of “good fortune that no one else ever realized how amazing Aled is before they met”.
I do recommend reading all of the Sin Bin Series, in the proper order, so that you can fully appreciate these interesting men, an international and diverse cast of characters!
Navy SEAL, Wyatt Earp saved Aled from drug runners, but now Aled has to deal with the after effects from the traumatic experience. Thankfully, Wyatt is there to help him through that as well.
I loved this book. Like with most books by Dahlia Donovan, the book is high in emotion and the relationships are the focus, but I think with this one it is so much more than any other book I've read by this author. I also have to applaud her on this story. So many times in military romances, I read about PTSD and it is thrown into the background or mentioned as an afterthought, but not in this book. While it was not the main focus, the way it was portrayed was perfect and was not some parting thought. While this book is not as heavy on the steam as previous books, I think it works perfectly for this book. It is about the relationship, healing, and overcoming. A quick read that pulls at the heartstrings, puts a smile on your face, and a tear in your eye. I recommend everyone one click this 5 star read today!
