Out of Sight by Melissa Klein is the second book in the author's Out of Uniform series. I haven't read the first book and was read this story as a stand alone without any problems. It's also my first book by the author and I'll be anxious to read the rest of the series.
Mia Jones and Hank Taggart grew up in the foster care system and are just like the family they never had. She is a fantastic ADA lawyer who goes for conviction whenever she's in court but one of her cases has struck back with a violent attack putting her in a coma. Mia is now learning everything again and dealing with TBI will be hard but with her fiance and Hank by her side she hopes to battle back to her new normal life. But there is something sinister out there trying to make sure she doesn't remember. Hank is very suspicious of her fiance Tripp but he had his own worries to deal with plus what he feels for Mia is more than brotherly love. Luckily, she tells Tripp to take a hike because now that she knows how Hank feels she'll do whatever she can to convince him that what they feel is forever.
Hank Taggart is a Navy aviator who had to ditch his F-18 into the ocean when he couldn't see the catch wire. Now he's grounded and waiting for doctors to determine if he'll be able to fly again. But as soon as he's told of Mia's attack he'll do whatever it takes to get her better again. But will he be able to deny that he feels more than brotherly love for her? As the doctor's tell him the news that he has a genetic eye disease, he'll also learn that Mia has something the attacker doesn't want known and who they are will surprise you. Can Hank and Mia find the love they didn't have as children? Will Mia be able to escape a second time from someone who wants her dead?
I loved how the author researched TBI and also RP as it brings so much to the reader to understand how it changes the patients lives.
By: Author Melissa Klein
Let me begin by saying this was my first read from this author but definitely not my last.
Mia and Hank have known each other since they were living as foster siblings. Mia was badly beaten on a bike trail near her home, and left for dead. She was luckily found by a good samaritan and rushed to the local hospital for treatment. She fought to recover her her mobiilty, her speech and her memory. She learns that her home was set on fire just as she is released from the hospital. Hank is trying to come to grips with losing his site (a genetic disorder passed from his father). What will it take for these to, too be together? Mia knows that she has always loved Hank, but fear that he does not feel the same holds her back. Mia was engaged to a controlling man that believes money gave him rights he doesn't have with Mia. She breaks the engagement off with Tripp after remembering he was a cheater. Tripp though keeps turning up at the worst times in the sotry. The reader is lead to beave that Tripp has something to do with Mia's attack.
The author did an amazing and descriptive job with this book. She has you rooting for Mia and Hank to get together from the beginning. You know these two broken people with huge hearts could be amazing together. It'll break your heart, you'll want to scream with frustration and it'll let you discover that love just might conquer all. The chemistry is sweet and oh so romantic.You'll just have to go through the angst and torment to get to the HEA. I highly recommend this book and plan to read other books in the series.
Thanks you Netgally for letting me read and review.
Hank is her foster brother and after his plane crash he must face the fact that he may not be able to fly again but that pales in comparison to learning that Mia was attacked.
As they both try to deal and heal from their recent experiences feelings develop between them which are far from brother and sister and when it looks like the people who hurt Mia aren’t finished will he be able to keep her safe?
I loved both these characters as they showed incredible strength and resilience as they deal with life altering situations and their connection to each other is deep and powerful. The storyline has suspense and twists that keep you entertained. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
I enjoyed reading this story about foster siblings becoming lovers. This is not among my favorite tropes, but I thought it was well crafted: “He couldn’t recall when exactly his feelings for her began to change. Rather than a seismic shift that resulted in an earthquake, the change came subtly like spring slipping slowly into summer.” (Loc. 894).
Mia and Hank are both strong and likeable characters. Hank sometimes acts like a jerk, but I guess I even liked those imperfections, he seemed more real. I just felt that he was so obsessed with resisting and fighting the attraction that when he finally gave in it seemed too sudden. But he was so protective and tender with Mia…
Both main characters are dealing with life-altering medical issues in this story and I liked how the author, Melissa Klein, dramatized them, specially Mia’s traumatic brain injury (no spoilers here, the blurb is explicit about that) – I thought it was very well handled, realistically and showing knowledge and research about its implications and effects. The hero’s diagnosis is understandably not as developed and takes a back seat to Mia’s problems. And maybe his character is overdone when Klein gives him an additional serious problem.
I would love to read more about these two people because, in the end, their story and their issues felt a bit incomplete. I was also very curious about some delightful secondary characters: Bash, the SEAL/writer, and Hank’s biological brothers, dealing with the same medical issues.
