The army taught me discipline. Order. Control.

None of that matters the day I walk into her classroom.

Or her bedroom.

What's more important than my grade?

Not failing her.

My Thoughts:

Trent Milner has decided to join his friend in keeping us safe.  Danika “Dani” Anderson changes like the wind – you never know what she’ll do.  These two couldn’t be more opposite but that doesn’t stop them from being friends.  They share a sadness that seems to be hard to break through.

Our author has made Dani out to be one stubborn woman.  And I thought my mother was bad – now it’s a toss up.  Makes you feel sorry for Trent – he has his work cut out for him.  This is the point that really caught my attention because you want to see what he’s going to come up with in order to bust down her walls.  It’s a story that shows how we all handle grief differently.  I then come to a point where it seems to be a tug of war between our couple.  He’d try to pull her in and she would push him away – back and forth, back and forth.

Soldiers are good at only showing what they want us to see.  They keep a lot inside but sometimes things trigger a memory and it shows itself.  It must have been hard for the author to write about the pain that these people who protect us must endure even after they come home.  But then she surprised me – once you read this you just might be surprised too.  Then she brings tears to my eyes when I expected to have a smile on my face so just make sure that you have some tissue near by.  But fear not what once started as tears did end in a smile.

Author Bio:

Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
