The story is fast paced and interesting. I would love to see more of the GAP men for sure.
Owen I felt for especially after Hannah did what she did. She really is a not nice person. What Owen went through in Iraq was gut wrenching. You can see why he had some issues afterwards with anger and sleeping. When he left his friends the Love’s so that he can start anew I was proud of him. He wanted to find himself and heal. He struggles with his anger but the IT job he gets helps him. He does let what Hannah did and say affect him though and not in a good way. He things others are around him because they want to see what it is like to be with the “gimp” so he has some anger and resentment.
When he meets Lainey, we see glimpses of Owen of old. He isn’t angry and grumpy all the time. At first he tries to stay away but suddenly that isn’t possible. Lainey is in her own troubled world. She is hiding and wanting to make it on her own. She is smart and strong but in trouble. Her and Owen are sizzling together. I felt for Owen when he learned her story and had that flashback moment. He wanted Lainey but didn’t want to hurt her and ended up doing just that. He saw himself as a monster and wasn’t sure he was good for her. In the end though Lainey shows him he is and he opens up his heart to her. He does save her as well from a dangerous situation and you see the true Owen at this moment. The Owen that loves and is genuine. The Owen who feels.
A story of romance and danger. Of healing and forgiving oneself. Of finding peace and love. Of letting others in and finding where you belong.
The story was initially a bit confusing. What a cast of characters! Do I need to remember all those names? After that initial confusion, the story builds slowly. There’s quite a bit of story before the two main characters even meet. I really enjoyed this as it gave the reader a good opportunity to become familiar with the main characters before they became enmeshed in their romance. I did find Owen’s story of going rogue beyond unbelievable; especially as it didn’t seem necessary to add this bit of unbelievability to advance the story.
I liked Lainey a lot. What I didn’t like was her male co-workers continuing to ogle her despite being in committed relationships. It objectified women and made it sound as if men cannot be in the presence of a beautiful woman without leering at her. That’s wrong in so many ways.
After some skids and bumps, the romance between Owen and Lainey progresses well enough until Owen contracts a spectacular case of Male Martyrdom and nearly ruins the whole thing. Will men never learn? The story then hits hyperspeed with the last few chapters rushing through to the conclusion. This speedy ending didn’t match the slow build-up at the start of the story.
Overall, a quick but at times hot read. Perfect for warming up on a cold Sunday afternoon this Fall (or any Fall for that matter).

The story has laughs, secrets, pain, and heartbreak.
This is Lainey and Owen’s story. These two are a little broken.Read more
