Can bridges be mended in the name of love, or are they better left in ashes?
Four months after a life altering decision, Ellie is trying to keep her head above water. She takes it day by day, trying not to lean too much on her friends and family. Fighting her demons from the past, is she strong enough or ready to love again?
Bobby isn't proud of the way he left Wakefield, and Ellie, behind, but he’s trying to make himself a better man. The desert and his security detail hold a lot of twists and turns for Timmons, but he never goes a day without thinking about the feisty woman who has his heart. When he makes it back to Wakefield, will there be enough left between them to mend the broken hearts?
This fourth installment in this loved military romance series brings us some bumps in the road for Chad and Rhea as well. Because, as we all know, no one in the little town of Wakefield, Virginia has it easy in love. Be ready to travel with the characters on a path filled with physical, mental and spiritual healing, along with more than a few HOT tumbles in the hay and one ending that might make your heart melt.
Review by Brittany
Ever since Theresa asked me to review her series, I’ve been hooked. From the prologue of the very first book, I was pulled in, desperate to read more and more about the Wakefield SEALs. Book 4 was no exception; I was drawn in, reading until one o’clock in the morning, craving sleep, but craving more about the Wakefield SEALs and their families.
In the previous book, I Never Asked You to Save Me, Bobby Timmons was coping with losing his leg after an explosion during a tour in Iraq caused it to be blown off. Bobby meets Rhea’s cousin, Ellie Griggs, and starts to fall for her. He believes with all his might that she can never love him, so after an accident that left Ellie in the hospital, he leaves her and everyone else in Wakefield, taking a private security job in Afghanistan.
When this private security job turns out to be a scam, Chad and his NCIS team literally swoop in and bring him home. Afraid to see Ellie again, but desperate to see her and hold her, he tries to avoid her. When that doesn’t work, he goes all in, dead set on loving her forever.
This book is just phenomenal. A great way to conclude Bobby and Ellie’s story. I loved that I also got to get looks into Chad and Rhea’s lives, as well, since I love them the most and can’t take not spending time with them.
The characters in this story are great. They suffer from real life struggles which makes this book more awesome. When an author writes about things that can happen to you, it’s pretty cool. I hate always reading about these things that’d probably never happen, and that’s why I love Theresa.
Five stars, once again, for this novel, book four in my favorite military romance series. Five stars for love finding its way, five stars for new romances budding, and five stars for family. Great job Theresa!
About Theresa Marguerite Hewitt
I'm a small town girl<originally from Madison, NY> stuck in the south side of Buffalo for now. Even though I know my writing is not perfect, I hold my head high knowing that I am one in a million and that I have had the guts to put my stuff out there for people to read. I have learned and am learning every day that I can not, and maybe don't want to be, everyone's cup of tea.
