ER nurse Lindsey Helm used to be strong. Then a late-night attack at the hospital nearly killed her and left two close colleagues dead. Now Lindsey has retreated from the world. She knows she needs to move on, but every hint of danger seems threatening—including a certain sexy fly boy who’s determined to show Lindsey what she’s missing. But falling for F-18 pilot Maverick Armstrong is a risk she can’t afford…
Maverick knows that fear can eat away at the soul, and he won’t leave Lindsey to that fate. She needs someone to reach her and to remind her of the exhilaration and unbelievable passion of being touched. He’ll help her heal, and then he’ll walk away. He has to walk away. Because Maverick swore he would never fall in love and never marry. But this is a rescue operation, and Maverick will stay the course—even if things get hazardous. Even if saving Lindsey means surrendering his heart in the process…This book never really connected for me. The beginning was interesting and compelling, the attack Lindsey suffered and the recovery after the things that would have changed, and the way she fought back after the attack had a lot of interesting potential.
Maverick is a fighter pilot, so he should be cocky and self assured, able to take care of himself, to go after what he wants.
There was a lot of potential...and it went nowhere. These people could have been anyone. There was nothing about either of them to set them apart from anyone else. He could have been an accountant for all his job played into the story. She could have been one as well...and heck, if they had both been accountants in the same office, this would have been more interesting.
The pacing and the characterization also suffered for this...it was hard to really invest in the story as it plodded along and there was nothing about either character who kept me reading. I wanted more of them in the story, not more of the one dimensional people I spent the book with.
I did finish this book, but I am not able to recommend it.
Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!
