Never cheat. But if you must, cheat death.

Veteran Army Medic Garrett Wright narrowly escaped death more than once. Through the horrors of war, he witnessed the darkness and ugliness of humanity, and let it consume him from the inside out.

Stefanie Banks knows all too well how dark and ugly the world can be. She lives her life determined to make every moment better than the last.

In a dive bar in the middle of nowhere, Stefanie and Garrett’s worlds collide. Sunshine and darkness face off, and sparks fly.

Can a war-torn soul and one who never felt loved trust one another enough to cheat the curveballs life throws at them and hold on to love enough to make it last the distance?

**CHEAT does not have any cheating of any kind and can be
read as a standalone.**

My Thoughts:

Garrett Wright has come to realize that some of his choices may not have been wise ones.  Stefanie Banks is one of those people that will help those that can’t help themselves.  She has a man in her life that may not be related to her by blood but that doesn’t stop him from really caring about her.  Kip may be a secondary character but he’s very important to the flow of the story.

There’s a scene toward the beginning where Garrett divulges something – it made me feel so sorry for him.  The scene felt so real you’ll have no trouble feeling his emotions.  Then Stefanie reveals some things from her past and that just made me sad all over again.  But on the whole this is a feel good story.  There are ups and downs but some relationships go through that.  There might have been a time or two when I wanted to get mad at Garrett – I might have gotten a little protective of Stefanie.  If I had to pick something to compare him to it would be a steamroller – watch out when he picks up speed.  That’s the point where you won’t want to put the book down.

I have not read this author before and I think this was the perfect book to start my love affair.  You want a book that’s going to pull at your heartstrings and this is one that will do that.  She’s either very good in her research or she’s had some personal experience.  This is a book that could be read as a standalone.  But if you’re like me, you already have one, or maybe even both, of the other titles in this series either in your library or on your TBR list.  Our author leaves us with a teaser – one more book to add to my ever-growing library.  Sad news is that I have to wait until next year.
