As a combat photographer in Afghanistan, Tara Dalton saw things she won’t ever forget, as much as she would like to. And after returning Stateside, she can’t fight her way past the PTSD that’s haunted her ever since. Desperate to make a change, she joins her old friend Shay at the Bar C Ranch, where a group of ex-military vets are putting their lives back together one step at a time—including one strong, gentle bear of a man who makes her feel safer than she has in years.
Harper Sutton fell farther than he ever imagined after his tour of duty as a medic was up, and he’s not proud of it. But at the Bar C, he’s doing work that means something, and he’s training to be a professional paramedic. That’s enough to concentrate on, until Tara comes to share his place at the ranch. The shadows in her eyes are darker than simply memories of war, and every moment he spends with her opens up parts of himself he’d thought long dead. But as Tara’s troubled past threatens the present, it will take trust in each other to fight for a future together…
|The fifth book in the series takes you back the Bar C and once again you are introduced to a vet that has come has come home. Tara Dalton grew up in the valley and left at the age of eighteen, now after ten years as a combat photographer, her PTSD has caused her to look for a place to live other than her parents after causing them pain. Finding a place at the Bar C She becomes a roommate with Harper Sutton who was a medic and still dealing with his own PTSD issues and a divorce. The beginning of this book starts off good like the other books but then for some reason there is just a lot of words and repeating of conversation that I felt took away from the story. I got that part of the book was about PTSD, but it felt like that was brought up in every conversation. Also, most people in black ops don’t talk about being in black ops or saying because we were in black ops we know what we are doing, the two of them would have an understanding and very little would be spoken and only about what they were going to do, not the consent phase black ops. These and endless words or excessive in this book made for a very slow read and for a much different experience than the other books in the series. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 2 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
