Something to hold on to . . .
Not so long ago, Reese Lockhart was commanding a company of Marines. Now his life is spiraling out of control. The Bar C ranch outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming may be his last chance to save himself . . .
Shaylene Crawford, an Afghanistan veteran herself, knows all too well the demons of PTSD—that’s why she’s determined to turn her family’s cattle ranch into a place where wounded warriors can work, find a home, and rebuild their souls. Her embittered father nearly drank and gambled the place away, but with help from a small crew of vets—including the newest arrival, the quietly compelling Reese Lockhart—she intends to hold on to her dream. And when someone tries to destroy that dream, Reese will do whatever it takes to defend her . . .

I thought this was a wonderful story that was very well done. It's another look at the struggles our vets deal with on a daily basis and how just a little kindness from all of us can help them get their lives together. In this story Reese Lockhart is most definitely down on his luck. Homeless, jobless, and hungry he staggers into the feed depot in a town just outside Jackson Hole looking for work. The kindness of the owner is astounding and before Reese knows it his life is turned around. He's working on the Bar C, a ranch owned by Shaylene Crawford who is also a vet. She along with the help of a small handful of vets are trying to turn the ranch into a place other vets can come to work and deal with their demons. Someone is trying to keep that from happening and Reese is determined to keep both the woman and the dream safe.
An excellent read and I definitely recommend it.
Helping others leads to love
Shay is a veteran and had an abusive upbringing. She struggles to keep her ranch. Her principles include only hiring other vets with PTSD. Enter Reese. He has fallen on very hard times dealing with his illness. There is an instant spark between them, but they slowly get to know each other until the time is right. I enjoyed the interaction of Shay, Reese, the other veteran ranch hands, and the all the locals. I read the first in this series, and look forward to the next.
I received a copy of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.
