My Review:

This story is such a great read! Jessie McBride was involved in a RTA which resulted in her breaking her femur in three places. At the scene Asher Chapman helped save her life but they never got to introduce themselves to each other. However, when they next meet she’s belligerent, objecting to him trying to help by holding the door open as she was going in to have PT. He’s actually a former Green Beret, an amputee who was going to have a new prosthesis fitted. Despite this poor start, the two connect and so begins a heartwarming romance, packed with problems and love.

I really enjoyed reading this story. The characters are well developed and many appeared in an earlier book I’d recently read, Lone Star Reunion by Justine Davis. I’m always impressed by the way the different authors in series like this integrate their storylines and characters and that was particularly evident as I read – and thoroughly enjoyed- these two book so closely together.

This story shares aspects of the impact of PTSD on people, how dogs and other animals can help and what a struggle it can be for them all. It is a heartwarming story, a fascinating read where honesty and  learning to both trust and love again is key to future happiness. I can’t praise this book highly enough!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.

Synopsis:

A match made in heaven…

When strong, independent cowgirl Jessie McBride meets former Green Beret Asher Chapman while doing PT for her broken leg, the two share an instant bond. Jessie rescues and raises mustangs, while Asher established and runs a foundation that matches veterans with shelter animals. The immediate, fiery physical connection between them is even stronger.

A conflict born in hell

Unlike the girlfriend who left him after discovering the full extent of his injuries, Asher knows Jessie can handle his physical wounds. But he doesn’t believe any woman could handle the secret he can’t even face himself. Much as he wants her…and is becoming convinced he loves her, he can’t risk disclosing what haunts him.

Jessie can’t understand why Asher emotionally pulls her close only to push her away again. Can this wounded warrior learn to trust Jessie to love all of him before he drives her away for good?
