One day a year Will MacIntyre lets himself remember the woman who left him after he enlisted. But seven years later, on the anniversary of that fateful day, Will is defusing a bomb in Afghanistan—and it explodes.
Dr. Oliva Eklund can barely find the boy she loved inside the hard, chiseled body of the man Will is now—a Marine who knows just how to tempt her, just how to seduce her. Olivia is well aware that Will plans to return to his unit after he recovers, but she can't resist trying to heal him. Even if it means sending him back into a war zone. And breaking them apart forever.
The main characters in this novel are fantastically well developed. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them as individuals. Their combined histories were revealing and also allows readers to understand the context of the story itself. I appreciated how they were both determined to be true to themselves but in the end, willing to compromise. The supporting cast in this novel wasn’t overly developed, but they all suited their roles in the story.
As a whole, this was a shockingly raw & real novel that I thoroughly enjoyed. I would definitely recommend it to others, and will be reading more of this author’s work in the future.
