Blurb: Just released from the military, wounded warrior Eric Tremaine is trying to put his life back together like the doctors reassembled his shattered leg. He’s a man with no home, since his Louisiana family rejected him, so Eric winds up in Texas with his old Army buddy, Adam Winchester, and his lover, Sage.
When Eric decides to stop sitting on his ass feeling sorry for himself, he is introduced to trainer Troy Daniels, who lost both his legs in a teenage accident. Troy knows what it’s like to feel as if your body is your enemy. While Eric and Troy have a bumpy start, they soon find enough common ground to make a friendship, if not more. But taking it to the next level means finding out what they have to offer each other, and the world, before they can trust that the love they find together won’t cause more pain than pleasure.
Review – Book: I previously reviewed this book here.
So – first, you don’t have to have read book one, but… it was a great book and really helps make this book mean even more. Sage and Adam are the MCs from book one and play an important role in this book. Sage has had two knees replaced and is doing PT with Troy, a double amputee who is both tough and a little crazy for adrenaline.
Eric is a recent ex-soldier, just out of the Army on disability. Eric and Adam were in service together and Eric is blessed that Adam offers him a place to recuperate when he’s out of options.
After a rocky first meet, Eric and Troy end up working out together and making a real connection.
Both men have their hurdles to overcome and Troy especially keeps running into trouble. But together – together they work just fine and with little to no trouble at all.
This is a very sweet book, full of endearments and easy, smooth lovin’.
We get to see a lot of Sage and Adam and that, too, is fun and really, really sweet.
Though there are some tough recoveries in store for these guys, the bulk of this book is pretty angst-free and a very, very nice love story. In my opinion, just the right amount of “sap” for a true sap-lover like myself.
I highly recommend this to: fans of the author, the first book, cowboys, soldiers, uniquely abled peoples and sappy romance.
Book – 5 of 5 stars.
Review – Audio Book: Robert Nieman is one of my favorite narrators… but I was a bit disappointed with this one. He does a nice job with the emotion and the pacing – and I love his general narrator’s voice. He’s easy to listen to and overall, I liked it. What I wanted though, was all the accents. This is a book full of interesting characters who’ve got Texan and other type accents – but Robert doesn’t do those. I still enjoyed listening to it – just a bit less than I think I would if we’d had some other accents. The characters tended to blur together, and I had to listen hard to know who was speaking.
Audio – 4 of 5 stars.
Overall – 4.5 of 5 stars.
Overall Impression: I loved it
