I've read this entire series, so I've been given the chance to watch the main character Taylor grow and evolve. And to see him suffer broke my heart. But L. Ann managed to show a way for him to heal and survive beautifully. You get to see his relationship with his family, friends, and his girl mature and you get to see how a little support, love and understanding can help the broken become whole again.
This is a wonderfully written book and will be on my must reread list for a long time to come.
Every time a brother finds a woman the MC finds themselves at war. Although there was lots of action in Sniper with the obligatory gunfights and kidnappings, the actual war fought was Taylor and his family fighting against his PTSD. With Beth, he had the added worry of possibly harming her during a flashback.
I loved Taylor. He was everything I adore in a book boyfriend. Alpha to his core, but a wounded warrior and unbelievably strong. He was loyal and heart meltingly loving towards his family, especially Mucimi, Brantley’s toddler son. Beth was the perfect heroine for Taylor. She had an open mind and was completely patient and understanding with everything he and his crazy family threw at her.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that Sniper didn’t make light of PTSD by making it seemingly miraculously easy for Taylor to overcome. Even with all the freaky healing abilities of his brothers and cousins, there was no simple fix for him. He had to make the decision to take the steps to learn how to deal with his triggers so he could lead a long, normal life. The importance of family and friends to the healing process was showcased as was the fact that so many of our military do not receive the assistance they deserve.
Although Taylor’s journey to overcome his PTSD is the main theme of the book, there is lots of action including gunfights and kidnapping attempts to keep things interesting. The antics of both the MC and Princes family kept me smiling, and Taylor and Beth had plenty of sexy times to keep the heat level where I like it – up high. There were some editing issues, but I expect these with L. Ann Marie’s books. Regardless of the editing problems, I read Sniper all the way through in one sitting.
I have been waiting for Taylor's book since Book 1 when he came home. Actually since Cloud and CJ's book, to tell the truth. L. Ann Marie once again did not disappoint. Though this was slightly different then her previous books (no war when Taylor and Beth got together), it showed an inner war in Taylor battling with something that all our military battle with PTSD. Growing up with family in the military, I have nothing but a deep respect for what our soldiers and families have to go through and this book really brought that out.
I couldn't put the book down and in fact finished it in about 5 hours. It was really thought out and flowed really well. The plot was strong and enjoyable. Don't worry Danny and Steve do still bring the crazy, though Jessie is starting to get there as well.
I would highly recommend this story. There is no cliffhanger and though standalone, I recommend reading the series from the beginning.
Wonderful books all of them please write more I don't want the story's to stop

I cannot read enough of this author's work. She just gets better and better.
I have just read the 22 books to date back to back in the order published on the author's website and decided to review them as a whole. I really don't think they stand well as stand alones as there are too many common threads, too much history and too much character crossover for that so it really is one (very) long story over a very long period of time with each series concentrating on a particular character group but including all of the others (except for the initial Baxter books which didn't have a lot of MC action but did set the scene for a lot of what is to come).
I loved every book although of course some more than others but i am giving an overall five star rating. My biggest issue was that sometimes (often) i found it difficult to be sure exactly who was talking and had to reread sections to try to work it out. I think that perhaps what the author is seeing in her head moves a bit too fast to translate well to the written word for some of us (something like the thoughts of some of her characters - you need to read the stories to understand my thought process here!!)
My other issue was keeping my head straight with the cast of thousands (and this is not an exaggeration) ... with each story building on to what has come before and what will come to be and with most characters continuing to play a place in each consecutive story I found myself constantly stopping to think - now who was that, whose child is that, whose partner is that???? but even amongst that confusion I loved the relationships and the strengths they provided.
The author has an amazing imagination and has brought to the table a fantastic story that i will continue to read and at some point will def read again. I have always loved and had an interest in native american philosophy and also in paranormal and psychic connections and love the way these are ingrained into the books as the stories unfold.
Although there were some things that caused me slight annoyances I cannot deny that as a whole this fits as one of the best series i have enjoyed. my thanks to the author for providing such a thoroughly engaging tale
