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.
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'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.
There is trouble with the PD. Cleaning house seems to be a never ending process. Danny and Steve lend support. I love when they are around!
I fun, fast paced, and steamy story.. I loved how Taylor's type of PTSD was addressed. Though his his story is fictional, it is still inspiring and gives hope. Having grown up with an Uncle who lived with it, when it was still termed shell shock or battle fatigue, it's a subject I am very familiar with and sensitive to. He has passed on, years of smoking and drinking, his coping strategy's, took their toll. We have come a long way in recognizing and treating, but still have a long way to go. I hope his story inspires greater understanding and compassion for those who live with PTSD and other mental health issues.
