Green Beret Dax Holloway crawled out of the Taliban prison, Hell Mountain, barely alive. His captors took more than his sight. They took his humanity.
Six years later, he’s carved out an existence back in Boston. One dependent on routines. On walking the same path. Day after day. Through shadows and pain.
Second Sight is his only refuge. The most elite investigative and security firm in the country—built out of the rubble of his former life—gives him purpose in a world he can no longer see. A world where he always feels out of place.
Dax thought he’d buried the past. But some ghosts don’t stay dead. And some wounds are forever.
Evianna Archer’s life makes sense. A brilliant coder, she’s poised to be the next darling of the tech world—heading up a project that will redefine home security. Until one moment changes everything.
Her life in chaos, she turns to Second Sight, where the unlikeliest of men becomes her guide. Dax is everything she shouldn’t want, shouldn’t need, shouldn't trust. But she's drawn to him, even if his darkness threatens to consume them both.
When they uncover a shocking secret, Dax must make a choice. Stay broken? Or risk his heart—and his life—for the one woman who can see past his scars and into his soul.
Second Sight is a slow burn military romantic thriller. All books in the Away From Keyboard Series are standalone romances featuring a different couple, but past couples and characters play active roles in future books.
4 Star Review by Ashley
Well hello there Patricia D. Eddy! Where have you been hiding the last few years? How is Second Sight the first thing I'm reading from you? This book was a different kind of addictive. It was smart and dangerous and sexy. And from the heart stopping opening sequence, I was invested.
I liked that both Dax and Evianna were strong and smart individuals. Both at the top of their respective games. Both with a lot to prove. Both with a lot of people depending on them. Both with a lot of pride. Both with a lot to lose. Their first meeting was tense to say the least. Not that they should've been happy to have to meet at all, since Evianna is seeking help from Dax's security firm.
With his team stretched thin, Dax has no choice but to step into Evianna's security detail. He wasn't looking forward to it, in fact, he was dreading it. But once they were spending time together, Dax couldn't deny that there was something about Evianna that just called to him. Part of it was how hard she worked to understand and help him without taking away his masculinity. How she saw the man behind the scars. The other part of it was her strength and tenacity.
As Evianna and Dax grew closer, the danger facing Evianna continued to mount. I could feel it building and it was only a matter of time when it all came to a head. And when the big reveal, the mastermind behind all the mayhem, happened, I was as blindsided as Evianna. Wowza, the finale to Second Sight was intense, my heart was racing and I was hanging on the edge of my kindle. Patricia D. Eddy has a new fan and I can't wait to go back and read more from her.
About the Author
Patricia D. Eddy lives in many worlds. Witches, vampires, and shifters inhabit one of them, military men and women fill another, with sexy Doms and strong subs carving out the final slice of her literary universe. She admits to eleven novels (though there are at least five unfinished drafts on her desk right now), all while working a full-time job, running half-marathons, and catering to the every whim of her three cats. Despite this whirlwind, she still finds time to binge watch Doctor Who all of the Netflix Marvel shows, and most recently, The Handmaid's Tale. Oh, and she hopes to one day be able to say that she plays the guitar. Right now, she mostly tortures the strings until they make noise.
