I just love my âbrokenâ Heroâs â I can not help it â¦ that is how I stumbled across âTrue Blue SEALs: Zakâ by Sharon Hamilton.
I had this author on my radar for quite a while now as I also love Seals but I love so many different genres that its sometimes hard to follow up my TBR pile.
Anyway when I read the blurb to that book â I knew I had to read that one because the plotline really appealed to me.
And I was right. Just as I had imagined Zakâs story will definitely NOT be my last book by this author.
The book is easy to read as a standalone even if it is obviously part of a series. I might recommend to read the novella I heard about before reading this book as it is supposed to explain somewhat more about the background of the leads – but as I said it also will work without that. (I would love to tell you the right name but the series and books have real confusing names on Goodreads if you are not so familiar with the author – which I am not obviously â it is very hard to see).
The bookâs plot is written from the interesting perspective that the couple was already in love with each other before Zak was injured during his assignment. This was a refreshing view because usually most of the Military books I read start out with fresh new meet and fall in love couples (I like those clearly) â or broken marriages (there might be exceptions but -no- I do not like those very much) â So this was interesting.
Its clear that their love has to be strong â as it can not be easy to marry a seal â with the ever present knowledge of how dangerous his work is.
Amy is a strong woman that already endured a lot. She loves Zak but life is throwing so much at her that the reader has to ask himself when she will reach her breaking point.
And naturally it is not helpful at all that Zak can not come to terms with what happened to him and his way of protecting Amy is actually hurting her more than anything else.
The question is if their love will overcome the obstacles in the end. Or will Amy reach her breaking point before Zak is able to understand that Amyâs love is stronger than his doubts.
