About this ebook

Mission: Accept is a 2021 Readers Favorite Award Winner: Gold Award in the Military Fiction Genre

Mission: Accept is the second story in the Rise Again Warrior series but can be read as a standalone novel.

Dana Donahue might be Shane Logan’s cousin, but she’s nothing like him—she’s quite the opposite of him. Her thoughts focus on what money and people can do for her. She never approved of Shane joining the military and knows little about the world he has lived in for most of his life. All that will change when she has to ask him for a job after her father cuts her off.

Derek Stall lives on the streets by choice—not circumstance. Memories of what he did under order sometimes haunt him, other times give him the strength to move through one more day until he can finish the mission he started.

A chance meeting between Dana and Derek will lead to an unlikely friendship that might just save his life, but the drastic differences between them could be the dividing wedge that keeps them apart.

When Derek feels he has to leave Rise Again Warrior to complete his mission, he begins to realize that he could be leaving behind more than just a few friends. Could he be leaving behind the possibility of a healthy future before he finally accepts his past?

The next book in the Rise Again Warrior series, Mission: Repair, will be released in November 2020 for Veteran's Day.

Mission: Accept is the second book in Stacy Eaton’s Rise Again Warrior series and another fast-paced, action packed and profoundly emotional story that delves deeply into the lives of those who protect and serve their country and the ramifications of that service and the physical and psychological fall out when they return home. It’s important to read these stories in order as each flows into the next and the continuity of the foundation is paramount for full understanding. Dana and Derek are from completely different walks of life and at first, it’s hard to fathom they could possibly have a future, but as Dana interacts with the veterans she finally realises that not everyone is born with a silver spoon and the men and women who serve their countries are far too often disguarded and treated with contempt. Ms Eaton writes powerful and exceedingly raw stories that highlight the failings of those who shun the needy and the veterans who have given everything for our way of life. Many tissues are needed when reading these stories, but they have important messages that we all should acknowledge. As much as these books rip apart my heart and soul, I’m eager to read the next in the series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is book two in The Rise Again Warrior Series and it is Dana and Derek's story and omg what an emotional ride this book will take you on. Derek used to be a navy seal but when a mission went wrong he decided to leave and that has left him on the streets trying to make amends for what happened and that is where he meets the women that he can't stop thinking about even though he knows that nothing will ever come of it. Dana was from high society, she is a snob, spoilt, vain and took life for granted so when her parents cut all her money off and told her to get a job she was outraged as she had never worked in her life but she decided to go and ask her cousin Shane for a job as he owned and ran The Rise Again Warrior or RAW as.it was known as which helped veterans get help and improve there lives. Dana and Derek meet in the park where he is sleeping and Dana starts taking food to Derek who then surprises her by giving some of it to other homeless people and this forms a friendship between them but it is a very difficult one as Derek doesn't think that he deserves anything in life after what he had done but as Dana gets more into her job she realised that she wants to help more than she already has. When Derek goes to Dana's and when she is attacked he is stabbed so she takes him to RAW so he can be taken care of but he doesn't stay as he has a final mission to do. I can't wait to read the next book in this amazing series as Stacy Eaton certainly knows how to keep her reader's attention as this book grabs you right from the first page and to the last and I couldn't put it down as it was so addictive and I had to keep turning the pages to see what would happen and and there are many twists and turns along with emotional situations that you will not see coming. I definitely recommend you read this book, series and other books by Stacy and you will definitely not be disappointed.

Beautifully Written & Told🎧📚🎧 Gripping & Heartfelt! ~📚~Stacy Eaton delivers another awesome novel in her “Rise Again Warrior” series, a series I am loving, not only are the stories and characters amazing but the books contain so much heart and brings out my patriotic pride and respect for those who served and sacrificed so much for our beloved country. I recommend starting with the first book in the series “Mission: Believe” it sets the foundation for the concept of “Rise Again Warrior” a non-profit organization and program to help returning soldiers acclimate back to civilian life. This book is Derek Stall and Dana Donahues story, Derek, a former Navy Seal, has not had the easiest of times, he deals with memories of a mission gone wrong and haunting guilt. He lives on the streets, surviving day by day. Dana Donahue is a spoiled, prima donna who lives off of her families’ wealth, she has no responsibilities, that is until her parents cut her off to teach her a lesson. She is on the phone with her father while sitting on a park bench trying to change his mind, Derek was asleep under the bench and heard the whole conversation. Two people living two very different lives meet and start talking, it was an eye opener for her but there was something about Derek that go to her, she just did not know it at the time. She goes to to see her cousin Shane Logan about a job and gets hired to work along side, Nate. This book is raw and real, the story is brilliantly plotted and I loved how it all plays out. I also loved how clueless Dana was at first and how much she grew as a person by the end. The same for Derek, with the help of others he learns to live again and see things in a different light, copes with his PTSD and survivor’s guilt. Stacy Eaton, thank you for another amazing novel, it is a story I can not praise or recommend enough. ~🎧~I listened to the audiobook version, Ryan Clark is the perfect narrator to bring Stacey Eaton’s characters and story to life. You could hear how much heart he puts into his work as he captures the character emotions and projects them into his performance. His portrayal of the characters is spot on as he truly grasps each of their personas and makes the role his own. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. I loved touching performance at the end too. Thank you for another awesome listen 🎧
