The love of my life is dead.

Is there really a reason to live anymore?

I’m a war veteran who has suffered great tragedies overseas. Not only have I lost my right foot, but I have also lost my wife. Both at the hands of terrorists. Recurrent nightmares, a dead end job, and a painful limp are all I have left. Not much of a reason to wake up in the morning if you ask me. I’m struggling to carry on in this very lonely excuse of a life. The only reason I’m still swimming is because I have my best friend, Tucker, and my sister, Lizette, keeping me afloat.

Tucker has been my saving grace. I would not be here if it weren’t for him…literally. We have become practically inseparable since moving in together. And then, out of nowhere, there are these feelings and emotions. The kind that I haven’t felt in years; not since I lost the love of my life. The kind that I’m not sure I can handle, or even want to. But they have started wrapping around my broken and shattered heart, trying to mend it – whether I’m ready for it or not. Only they are not for a woman as you would expect, but for the man suddenly sharing my bed.

Am I ready to give love another go? I’m not so sure that I have it in me.

But then again, I’m tired of being at war.

This is the beginning of a Trilogy.

 

I have a soft spot for veterans of our military, and wounded vets have even more to deal with.  Meet Dennis a Marine, retired.  You just kind of fall for him, he is dealing with so much emotional baggage that it makes you just want to give him a hug.  He is losing the battle with PTSD, and the only one who can pull him out of his spiral to nothingness is another walking wounded, Tucker, his roommate and fellow vet.

 

Tucker is dealing with his own PTSD issues but appears to be doing better to people who are looking in front the outside.   Little do they know about the nightmares and how it is to live when all his brothers in arms didn’t come home.  Tucker and Dennis are helping each other make it through each day.

 

After 4 years everything changes they love each other as brothers, but suddenly they start seeing each other as more than just brothers.  It is new and scary but Dennis is open to trying with Tucker because it just feels right, when nothing else does.  Tucker just wants to be happy with Dennis.  This is new for both as neither are gay or bi, but it just feels right between them.

 

I really loved this book it is a wonderful, spellbinding story.  Very emotionally moving and heartbreaking at times, and at others you just want to smile.  I can’t wait for the next book in this trilogy to come out!
