Blurb : Vonnie Davis welcomes readers to Wounded Warrior Falls!

 

In this sizzling contemporary series, broken heroes meet women worth fighting for—and discover the healing power of love.

 

Navy SEAL Dustin Frank can handle physical pain; it’s his soul that needs mending. After losing part of his leg in an explosion, the panic triggered by his PTSD nearly drives him over the edge. So Dustin retreats to the Eagle Ridge Ranch, a charming hideaway tucked into the Hill Country of Texas. There he finds solace in the arms of a shy beauty who reawakens desires he thought he’d lost forever—and who makes him want to lose control, just when he needs it most.

 

Kelcee Todd sees beyond Dustin’s scars to the real man beneath: fiercely protective, strong yet tender. She wants nothing more than to feel his battle-hardened hands on her body. However, Kelcee is not the ordinary small-town girl she appears to be. Her brother is a killer with ties to the Russian mob, and after her testimony put him in prison, he’s out and eager for revenge. Now Dustin is her best defense, even if it could cost him everything. Kelcee could never ask him to make that sacrifice . . . but she can’t stop him, either.

 

Review : If you expect a sweet small town romance with flowers and people whispering sweet nothings … Ahm you should probably find another book.

 

Well not exactly but you know the way those romance series are … you read one book and most definitely know the rest by heart. Not that that is a bad thing – no – its just not for me.

 

So when I saw the Blurb of “Her Survivor” (A Black Eagle Ops Novel #1) by Vonnie Davis I was struggling because it had everything I liked especially the strong wounded soldier but it also suggested in its opening those “flowers” and sweet nothings so I was unsure if I should choose to read it or not.

 

Looking back I am glad I did because those lines suggesting this to be the first book in a small town romance series – well they are not actually wrong but they only tell half the story.

 

I was surprised by how detailed and deep the characters were. And especially how much actual suspense there was in this book.

 

The secondary characters make me long to read their stories and I just loved how it all played out. There is so much depth in this story but also fun and serious moments.

 

It was such a great read that I can hardly wait to get the next book.
