TALON (Uncompromising #1)
I pretend to smile.
Two years ago my life was perfect, until it wasn’t. I scattered my wife’s ashes then walked away from the Marines. I didn’t think I had anything left to lose.
I was wrong.
The blonde showed up on my doorstep beaten and stabbed. I did what I was trained to do—I stitched her up. I didn’t have a clue who she was and I told myself I didn’t care. Until they came looking for her.
I swore I’d take my last breath before I let anyone else hurt her, except I didn’t know she was keeping a deadly secret. Now I had two choices, her life or mine.
Marriage and combat taught me the same thing—I was no one’s hero. And I was about to prove it.

TALON is a 95,000 word standalone novel.
This book takes a bit to get used to. The main character Talon can be a jerk to most people and those are his friends. They give him room because his wife is dead and along with PTSD from being a combat medic he is drinking, and having one night stands. He also owns a surf shop and the women who is there is the one that actually runs it. That is at least how it feels in the story. Nichole is a wife to an ex-marine that they know and she shows up at his shop looking like she was in a boxing match. After finding a little part of the story he helps her to get fixed up. He wants to help her but she does not want his help, and that make him search for the reason. Once he finds out he now wants to help her more, but also his whole being is starting to change when he is with her. When his friends find out her problem as well they also come together to help him in assisting her with her problem. I will say that there is a lot of things going on in this story and at times it takes over from the characters. That I think is the one thing I did not like was the jumping around. I did get a handle on it by the end but it was still difficult at first. Not a bad book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
