The strength that Hope Shane shows is extraordinary, but is also able to show a tender, vulnerable side which makes the character extremely creditable.
The story flows well and kept me engaged throughout. Just when I thought I had this plot figured out, Easton throws in a twist or two or three I had not seen coming.
I would definitely recommend this book. You will not be disappointed. I am now once again waiting for Easton's next book.
Hope Shane gives the impression of being a total badass who can handle any situation. She loves being in the thick of things and is totally dedicated to the causes and few people she cares about. Some might call her cold but she's actually intensely devoted and focused on doing what's right to the exclusion of all else, including her own safety. Her work is the most important thing to her until she met, and secretly married, Colonel Michael Cedars in the middle of the war in Afghanistan. It's in a dark room where they plan for the future and enjoy quiet moments of happiness keeping the war at bay. Their dreams come crashing down as he's severely injured and tries to push her away and deny her existance out of fear. She's a strong-willed woman though who has no intention of giving him up and forces her way back into his life. Her strong outer shell hides her inner turmoil and flashes of PTSD from all the death she's witnessed. I ached to see her moments of weakness as they were so contradictory to how she presents herself. Her latest story puts her right in the thick of a battle at home involving human trafficking that puts her life in jeopardy as well as those around her. Once again Michael's in danger but thankfully they have each other to turn to as the danger is closer than they ever expected. Even though she struggles with survivor's guilt throughout the story she never lets things beat her. No matter how often she's knocked down, she gets right back up to stand by her man and her convictions.
Michael Cedars has always been a man in control, so his paralysis is especially frustrating as he now has little control of anything. As a quadriplegic myself I found his feelings believable and the cycle of emotions he goes through towards acceptance realistic. His own body has betrayed him through its weakness that mentally makes him feel like less than a man. He's used to taking care of others but now must be taken care of. At first he pushes Hope away as he wants her to have someone better than him. Through her support and presence though he realizes he's still the man he was, just a slightly different one, that she needs no matter what. He too can admit that he needs her and wants to fulfill those dreams they once made. He accepts her as she is even as others call her reckless. As they reunite in the home she planned for long ago their connection deepens and the hurts they've buried deep inside slowly heal. Love is a healing balm and leads to an immensely satisfying conclusion.
Hope and Michael are both flawed characters who sometimes hurt each other in their verbal battles. They love each other wholeheartedly and unconditionally. Their love was vital to them both and as the story progressed they realized how much they'd give up to be together. Their journey towards a HEA was heartbreaking at times but ultimately cheer-inducing. The life of a wheelchair user was presented vividly and accurately and pulled no punches in dealing with the physical, mental, and emotional issues of having a body that's no longer yours to control. The sexual aspects were also dealt with sensitively yet believably. The mystery Hope gets caught up in went on a bit too long but definitely kept me on the edge of my seat guessing whodunit due to its numerous twists and turns. The secondary characters were larger than life with each leaving a lasting impression. This story drew me in completely from page one and kept me immersed in its grittiness until the very satisfying end and I wholeheartedly recommend it to others. This was my first time reading a book from this author but her impressive storytelling has me wanting to come back for more and I look forward to her future releases.
Michael's injuries and PTSD cause him to try to push her away but Hope is determined. She also suffers from her own traumatic memories. It's a human trafficking story she's working on that ultimately brings them back together. But Hope's involvement jeopardizes everyone she loves.
This is an exciting, suspenseful book but at its core, it's a heart-wrenching love story. I highly recommend it.
