I loved this book. You have a wounded man who would rather be alone and live life in darkness than be happy due to fear. Then you have a woman who is not even ready for another disappointed in a man.

Carey Heywood put these two characters together and it will just simply warm your heart and soul. These two characters are awesome to me.
I see a lot of her characteristics in me. Sick of men doing dumb *hit and telling us down but then we have to remember we also play a part in the raw hand too. Then she gives me...I mean us Mitch. All I can say is I would spend eternity trying to bring him back to life!

The concept behind this book is amazing and the fact that the author explain how and why she wrote this books gives me goosebumps. That is why I love to read and review books. The realness of life, of someone else's life. It is truly amazing.

Reading this books makes me what to go out and do something amazing, help save someone, or be a small piece of wonderful and touch someone's life.

So thank you Carey Heywood for emailing me this amazing read and letting me have a little piece of Mitch. I will take a little piece of him and carry him with me. Cheers to another fabulous story!!

Chasing Daylight is the third book in Carey Heywood’s Carolina Days series and can be read as a stand alone book.

Mitch is a disabled veteran suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). His PTSD is so bad, he has a therapy dog named Zeus who helps him get through the worst of it. Mitch meets McKenzie when Zeus needs emergency veterinarian care. Mitch feels a pull to McKenzie - the first person he’s felt any kind of connection with since his injury. McKenzie is facing her own demons and isn’t ready to jump back into a relationship. Fate has other ideas and Mitch and McKenzie are thrown together, despite their own reservations and intentions.

Sounds kind of formulaic, right? What makes Chasing Daylight different from other romance books is Mitch’s struggle with PTSD. Carey states in her note to the reader at the beginning of the book where she got the idea for Mitch and Zeus. She made Mitch an Airman because her own sister served in Iraq in the Air Force. This story was very personal for me. I am a 20 year Air Force veteran and am still on active duty. I spent 19 months in Iraq over two deployments and 12 months in Afghanistan over two deployments. I experienced a very similar situation as Mitch - I didn’t lose any limbs, but I lost a very close friend.

Carey’s gift as a writer is her ability to give depth to her characters. To make them real people with real problems. She nailed what PTSD is like - the anxiety, the anger, the sleeplessness, the inability to form and maintain close relationships… Even if Mitch is fictional, he is many of my friends.

Add to all that, Carey is able to tell a wonderful love story based on real emotions and struggles. It would be easy to see Chasing Daylight as another formulaic romance novel, but it isn’t. It’s a great story with great characters.

Another amazing book by Carey!

I love Mitch and Kenzie. This book is Carey's first attempt at throwing a little suspense into it, and she did a fantastic job. The plot is wonderful, and the characters are so lovable, you want to be friends with both of them.

The issues that each one face are so real, and sadly there will be women and men who can relate to Mitch and Kenzie, and what they struggle with. That is what sets Carey's books apart. She's able to bring a sense of reality to a work of fiction. It's truly a gift.

There are no graphic scenes, some mild violence, and some major hot lovin'! When I finished the book, I was sad because I didn't want to let Mitch and McKenzie go. That is the sign of a great read.

Oh y'all....there are so many things I love about this book (and the other books in the series) that its difficult to express it, but here we go...
1. The book is a love story in the truest since of the word. You experience the introduction, the build up, the emotions, the struggles, and then you are rewarded with love. Its so real and beautiful. I wish more books were written like this instead of writing about characters who use sex as an ice breaker.
2. The hero of the story is a wounded warrior. End of discussion. That is the baddest ass hero ever written!
3. Kenzie and Mitch's relationship is realistic. Its awkward, weird, confusing, endearing and more. When they have a disagreement, they talk about it! Its so normal! They both fight for each other instead of giving up. They don't allow the miscommunication trap to happen. Carey does a great job avoid all the cliche tropes of romance novels and I love it!
4. Zeus. Read the book and you will understand!
5. While both Mitch and Kenzie think about how hot the other is, it isn't so overly done that you feel the only thing attracting them is looks. Both appreciate each others looks with Carey being overly descriptive. I appreciate this because as a reader, you don't feel like you are unpretty because you don't look like that. When Kenzie is talking about Mitch, she discusses his hotness in general; same for Mitch when he talks of Kenzie. He isn't saying he loves her skinny stomach or other things. It allows you to not feel self conscious about what they find attractive in each other. Its beautifully written and doesn't make the book shallow like so many romance books today.

Mitch is funny and endearing even though he is still not fully emotionally recovered.
