About this ebook


I stayed away.

Even though it crushed me.

Because that’s what he wanted.

I distanced myself from the man I love.

I moved on, or so I told the world.

Went through the motions, and smiled when I wanted to cry.

Then chaos flashes into my life, destroying everything in its path.

It’s time to face facts.

Lincoln Hayes is the only one I trust.

The only one who keeps the nightmares at bay.


I love her. 

Thoughts of her came with every bullet that flew past my head overseas.

Every night, I dream about her and what we could have had.

She’s the only reason I came home.

The reason I stay, even though the very sight of her is torture.

After my brother died in my arms, everything changed.

I’m damaged. Broken.

She deserves so much more than I could ever be.

I’ll forever want the life I can never have.

That doesn’t mean that I won’t watch her six.

Boots on the ground, active and ready.

I’ll take out any threat she faces.

No matter the cost… because I’m not strong enough to lose her again.

Finally Acknowledging Their Love - Kennedy was just starting to fully live her life, after living through a year of hell with her ex-fiancé, when he started tormenting her again. Link had been in love with Kennedy for years, but the events that occurred during his last deployment caused PTSD and made him push everyone away. However, when Kennedy was in trouble, Linc was always on hand to make it better. He soon realised he was deluding himself the more time he spent with her and acknowledged the chemistry between them. Unfortunately, Kennedy is keeping a giant secret, which has her running scared, but it takes her family, friends and Linc to give her the courage to divulge the secret. This book is not for the fainthearted, as the descriptions on some of the pages will churn your stomach. However, there are wonderful romantic moments, a cute know-it-all kid, a beautiful camaraderie between friends and family, engaging banter and an intense storyline that will keep you engrossed. I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read the next book in the series. I received an advanced copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

I have read several books by this author through ARC programs but not necessarily in order. Would recommend reading them in order so you would have a better idea of how all of the characters work together. The main families in this book are intertwined so at times it can be a little confusing. This is the story of Kennedy and Lincoln, who have known each other forever and were involved before Linc left for the Marines and to serve with her brother and other friends from Birch. With everything Linc has seen during his service he does not think he can be with anyone and therefore they part ways. Their feelings are still there but Kennedy tries to move on with a lawyer named Royal. There is some secrecy around why she breaks off that engagement and is now single. Both Kennedy and Linc need to heal from their past as they try to find their way back to each other. As with the other books in this series, there is plenty of action and suspense that keep you reading to see how Kennedy and Linc will get their second chance. **I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.***
