“He’s the best fucked-up guy I’ve ever know.”
When I went into this book, I was not expecting for it to touch me in the way that it did. THIS BOOK was amazing, and I fell a little bit in love with the author for writing a story that had plenty of depth and emotion that will stay with me for a long time. The prologue alone was enough to prove to me that this book would be a winner.
Cade Walker is a Navy SEAL who is on a mission in Afghanistan when he stumbles across a fellow American, in the form of a beautiful woman called Faith who is working out there as a missionary. He spots her playing guitar and singing to a local boy called Aadil, who is risking his life by just being there.
Faith is the daughter of a minister, her father is a good man, but Cade would never in a million years see him that way, so it’s a good job that they will be only spending a few days together…
That is until something unthinkable happens, their lives are changed forever and Cade and his 2 best friends, and brothers in war, are forced to act.
From the heartbreaking prologue to the heart-warming epilogue, everything in between was well paced. The character development was spot on and I was never once bored. As soon as one plot-line was wrapped up, there was another to take it’s place. There was a lot going on, but not once did I feel that it was OTT. It was just right, for me.
I have so much love for FAITH, who was smart, sassy, innocent but not naive, and selfless. She was what I look for in a perfect heroine, I do not have a bad word to say about her, whatsoever.
Cade was a broken hero, with a HUGE heart and a dirty mouth. How much more perfect can you get?
Then there were the side characters, especially Christopher and his little sister Ruthie. Two wonderful children, one who was a boy trying to be a man to protect his sister, and a little girl with a speech impediment and no friends, who just wanted to be loved. I adored them. So much.
The steam was off the charts, the emotion was real and the depth of the story was superb, there were so many layers to this story.
I have not read the first two in this series, but I can tell you now that I will definitely be going back to read the first 2 at some stage because Jaxson and Sawyer were two characters I’d love to read about.
I LOVED THIS BOOK and I will be adding KC Lynn to my auto read list.
