Homeless, plagued by nightmares from an abusive childhood, nineteen-year-old Tyler Bishop does whatever he can to escape his pain. Drugs, alcohol, everything’s game—at least until handsome Dean Henderson struts into his life and shows him a better way. For two years, Dean’s love and friendship give Tyler the strength to face his demons instead of running.Then tragedy strikes.
When a drunk driver kills his parents and severely injures his eleven-year-old sister, Emily, Dean panics. With Emily facing years of extensive—not to mention expensive—rehabilitation, he needs health insurance fast. Forcing himself back into the closet, Dean drops out of college and enlists in the Army. For two years, he plays the perfect soldier, but the pressure of pretending to be someone he’s not is suffocating.
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repealed.
Out on walkabout after a painful emotional setback, Tyler isn’t prepared for the backlash of seeing Dean again. Face to face for the first time in five years, sparks—and tempers!—fly. Before sanity catches up with them, they’re locked in a fierce kiss. But with Dean about to deploy and Tyler wrestling new demons is a reconciliation possible? Or is their
reunion doomed before it even begins?
Overall, I thought this was a pretty decent read. This is the first book by this author I think I have read, and I would read something from them again in the future. But with this story, it left me wanting quite a bit.
The story was very predictable, but it was a good predictable. It was more of a sweet romance with a little bit of drama, nothing over the top at all. I felt like the characters were very well written and perfect for each other as well.
To me personally it felt like something was missing from the story. I can’t really put my finger on it, but I didn’t enjoy the story enough to give it a 5 star rating. I would recommend this book to anyone who is just looking for a good sweet romance.
