They found themselves in idn t happen until later in the book And then it really was a page turner and I needed to know what was going to happen Overall I thought that this was a good read even though I had a few issues with it I No Place To Cry: The Hurt and Healing of Sexual Abuse definitely want to continue on with this series and see what happens next I would love to see if Kell and Leah are included in future books as it would be nice to get a peek at their relationship as it continues to grow I think that romance readers will probably enjoy this one Recommended with a few hesitationsBottom Line A good read and I will be reading by this authorDisclosure I received a copy of this book thanks to the publisher for a TLC book tour Thoughts are my own Oh the melodrama I ve not read a single book by this author where the heroine wasn t brutally raped at least once About a 35 star read for me At first this felt like some of the other Lindsay McKenna books I ve read lately but as I read on it began to grow on me Most of the book focuses on the two main characters Leah and Kell On a routine mission in Afghanistan Leah s helicopter is shotown She is the only survivor and is rescued by Kell Kell takes her to his cave yes cave and nurses her to health They are in constant All That Glitters (Alchemys Heirs danger of being found by the Taliban This was a fun book to read A little intense in the romance actually a bit Stockholm Syndrome for me in a way because of the circumstances Leah samaged goods because of a previous sham of a marriage She is skittish around men but finds herself attracted to Kell Kell realizes that Leah shows signs of abuse and allows her to lead the way I enjoyed watching these two fall in love and work together to get back to the campNice happy ever after too A perfect book to read by the pool beach or summer cottage Thank you to NetGalley and Harleuin for a review copy of this book McKenna has created another winning tale Her vivid action packed story kept me on pins and needles throughout I could easily picture myself in the Hindu Kush alongside the characters I could really feel the intensity of the battles and skirmishes McKenna paints the scenery like a 3D mural that readers can walk through You really get immersed in the African American English: A Linguistic Introduction dire situations that the characters find themselves in I like how McKenna uses acronyms and short form terms after firstefining them for the reader It really gives a feel for the characters and the action they live with in their Great Short Stories by African-American Writers daily lives But this is so much than simply a military romance McKenna s hard hitting emotionally infused tale takes you on a whole other journey McKenna tackles many forms of abuse in a very in your face yet tactful manner The contrast ofarkness and light good and evil friend and foe come from many corners in this multifaceted tale You really get to know the main characters on a physical mental and emotional level Leah s past is so Drunk On Chocolate deep that her strength to rise above made her even remarkable The gradual emotional recovery made it all the believable Kell was your typical navy seal with a kick Being in touch with his emotional side made him all theesirableAs a whole this was a fantastic read This novel is easily read as a standalone but also ties in well to the past novels in the series I wouldn t hesitate to recommend it to those who enjoy a good romantic suspensePlease note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in

herself and Kell proud by taking that chance risking her career and finally yes finally standing up to that bastard I cheered out loud for her bravery because it was a long time coming and I anxiously

trust in him wasn t misplaced that he earned the right to have it that he would protect it like he would her His freakishly accurate ability to read Leah helped his cause For all that he could see in
