After surviving a bomb attack in Afghanistan, Tanner Merrill has returned to his hometown hailed as a hero yet he bares scars both inside and out. Believing no one would want him, he can't rely on his fortune when he meets Baylee Cameron, a woman with her own heartbreaking secret. One she's kept hidden since she was thirteen, but as soon as she meets Tanner, she can't help but share her burden if only he shares his with her.

Although this book is part of a series which I haven't read any of the previous stories, I thought this book was an incredible read. The plot was very interesting, and showcased how these two main characters overcome the burdens of their past to have a future together by sharing their encumbrances with each other via the onerous dialogue. Though there were no sex scenes, the chemistry between these two was there from the start. What I liked so much about the hero and heroine is how they could relate to each other through their own tragedies and how it made them closer once they shared their own burden of the past.

Overall, Ms. Manners has done an excellent job of penning this novel, and now that I've read this one I can't wait to go read the others of this series to see what I've missed out on when it comes to the secondary characters which happen to be Tanner's brothers.
