Until I Fall
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
I gave my heart to a Navy SEAL. He took it with him to his grave. Eleven years later, ignoring the yawning void is as automatic as breathing. Working brutal hours, dating a comfortably commitment-phobic guy, hanging with my best friends. Anything until exhaustion—or an extra glass of wine—claims my consciousness.
Then my neighbor’s handsome, enigmatic son invades my comfort zone. He says he’s a tattoo artist. But Anderson Hawkins’ piercing green eyes, mastery of the short answer, weird schedule, and military ink tell a different story. His touch ignites a long-dead flame inside me. A flame I’m afraid to examine too closely, even as I’m drawn to its heat.
I retired from Delta Force and went straight into private security, but undercover work isn’t the adrenaline rush it used to be. For one thing, my Mom’s illness shifted my priorities to finding a way to save her. For another, Dr. Aspen Zimmerman, whose prickly defenses belie the unflinchingly caring heart underneath, has slipped under my skin. Now my mission is to convince her it’s safe to unlock her heart. Because I’m ready to give her mine.
Note: This contemporary romance contains a wary, overworked doctor who’s a military widow in every way but name, an ex-military hero accustomed to treading dangerous ground, brought together by a few unexpected twists and turns—and maybe the machinations of a cute dog.
Heartbreaking story you will love
What a heartbreaking story of love and loss. My heart broke over and over for Aspen and the loss she has had during her life. Not only losing people in death, but those close to her that pull away as well. This story was about letting go of the past and learning to move on. Learning to live again. I loved Anderson and how he made Aspen want to fight to get past her issues. There is always something scary about loving so much that your world could fall apart if you lose them. Aspen is so afraid to feel and live because she has lost so much.
This book was definitely one you will need tissues for. I thought the story was a good one, I just got hung up on how much loss and sadness Aspen has gone through. It just seemed to drag a little bit for me, but the overall story I really enjoyed and I loved watching her take a chance with Anderson to really live again. Grab some tissues and read this one.
