Elliot McKenzie is the king of reinvention. Five years after losing his job and his lover and almost going to prison, his self-help program, Charmed Life, is more successful than he’d ever dreamed. He thinks he’s put his sordid past firmly behind him, until he starts receiving cryptic threats . . . and realizes it might not be as over as he’d hoped.

Security expert Lennox West has been lost since a deadly skirmish in Afghanistan led to his forced retirement from the Army. His PTSD makes helping his ex raise their daughter a challenge. When his ex’s sister asks him to set her boss up with a security system, Lennox isn’t expecting anyone like Elliot McKenzie—a man who captures his attention and makes him feel relaxed for the first time since leaving the service.

But Elliott is dangerously stubborn. Even as the threats against him escalate, he refuses to involve the police, and Lennox fears that stubbornness could kill him. A battle of wills ensues that brings them closer to each other than either man expected. But if the threats turn real, they might not live long enough to get their future together.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14April's Showering Words

I always have soft spot military men.

Lennox is dealing with PTSD and survivors guilt.  Whit these things going on it makes it hard to live a normal life.  While he deals with these things he also has to manage his young teenage daughter.

Through work he meets Elliot a man who sparks a desire for a more personal friendship.   But Elliot has his own background that doesn’t want to stay there.

I really like that Lennox is dealing with his problems in a real manner, he is trying to get his life back and be a good father.  Lennox is also a tried and true soldier, he will strive to protect the innocent from harm where ever he is.

The only thing I thought was not realistic was his symptoms were so bad yet they were hardly mentioned after the first time.
