Blurb : Ember strives to keep up her personae as the perfect military wife, nurse, and mother. She hosts cookouts, attends military events, and keeps an infectious smile on her face whenever she is around others. The secrets she keeps lie between the walls of her home, where her husband, Austin, drinks away his problems and asserts his dominance over Ember, physically. When Dalton Bates transfers to Austin’s unit, he wants nothing more than to rid Ember of her pain and to be with her. Dalton’s charm, compassion, and the undeniable way he makes Ember feel, sends her into a cloud of confliction. Dalton relentlessly pursues Ember, desperate to take her pain away and to make her happy, but when tragedy threatens to destroy Ember’s fragile heart even more, she is faced with an endless amount of uncertainty.Can Ember’s heart survive the overwhelming situations that consistently knock her down or will the pain send her crashing to the ground? All she wants is to feel again, to be whole, loved; but is a happily ever after written in the skies or will the dark clouds destroy her?

 

Review : This was my first book by this author and I think it will not be my last. Nicky Crawford has a really engaging writing style. So together with the background of this book it felt like very real and very possible scenario at times. It was easy to connect to the leading characters and I enjoyed the plot from beginning to end.
