She's caught in her past until he showed her a future…
Some things can never be forgotten. A helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Capture. Torture. Now U.S. Navy nurse Skylar Pascal is struggling to regain control of her life after a trauma that nearly destroyed her. After losing so much, an ideal job at the Elk Horn Ranch in Wyoming offers Sky something she thought she'd never find again…hope.
Former SEAL Grayson McCoy has his own demons. But something about Elk Horn's lovely-yet-damaged new nurse breaks something loose. Compassion—and passion. And even as Gray works with Sky to piece her confidence back together, something deeper and more tender begins to unfurl between them. Something that could bring her back to life.
But not even the haven of Elk Horn Ranch is safe from dangers. And all of Sky's healing could be undone by the acts of one malicious man…
This one was good. Sky is trying to get on with her life and hopefully move past what what happened. She was in Afghanistan and went through a terror that will never be forgotten. Gray understands what Sky is going through, maybe not exactly but he has his own past so understands more than most. As they work together at healing and their jobs, forward progress may be undermined.
I liked Gray. He just pulled me in. He was not over what happened to him but he had figured out how to deal with it. Sky's issue were much more recent and his desire to help her was something you could feel. Of course his desire FOR her was the same way! I liked the way the author wrote their interactions. Neither was perfect but both had realistic missteps and they had to work through them.
It was a 4/5 for me. I'm going to have to go back and read the earlier books in this series.
