Mariah Conrad has come home. Badly wounded on active duty in Afghanistan and finally released stateside, she has no family to call on and nowhere to go—until Quinn Walker arrives at her bedside. Quinn
her brother-in-arms, ex-lover and now maybe her future.Quinn brings Mariah to his log cabin in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky to rest and recuperate both physically and emotionally. While she's incredibly grateful, Mariah is also confused and frustrated. She's always stood on her own two feet, but now even that can literally be torture. She's having flashbacks and blackouts, hearing helicopter noises in the night. She wants to push Quinn away—and hold him closer than ever.
But will she get the chance? Those helicopters are more than just post-traumatic stress; they're real—and dangerous. Bad things are happening on the mountain. Suddenly there's a battle to be fought on the home front, and no guarantee of survival.
Wonderful! Mariah was hurt in Afghanistan and has come home but has no one to come home to. Quinn makes it where Mariah comes home to him. They have an intriguing past that leads to an even more interesting future. Mariah's recovery will take time and effort on both of their parts. Her flashbacks are so real but is something in real life triggering them or is she going crazy and just hearing things?
I'm so glad to see this family again! I love how close and great they are. Mariah and Quinn's relationship is wonderful to watch grown and unfold the whole time they are helping each other with coping. She fits well into his family and is even protective of them. Bear, helicopters and strange voices all lead you on a thrilling ride through this book.
I rate this a 5/5. I can't wait for more from this wonderful author!
