Disclaimer: I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Comes out January 31st, 2018
When Candice’s brother Marshall, dies in the war, her life is thrown through a whirlpool of hurt.
Blake Laine- A confident prick from hell that could eat sex for breakfast but is also a drafter UN PeaceKeeping troop who works for his father's company in South Sudan.
Candice Embers- A grieving sister who is mourning the loss of her navy brother tries to move on but still finds sadness behind every turn. Working at a medical centre, Candice comes into work one day but doesn’t think any less or any more than the man seated before her.
Candices life is turned upside down when she crosses paths with Blake when he is injured in combat and nothing for the both of them will ever be the same.
Living in a corrupted world when the rebels turn against the government in a quest for revenge, this love story prevails into something more than just any other book. In this fast paced book, you follow the trying times of two opposites that attract during a war fought between two battles, love and actual war.
“He’s just like any other patient, another warrior hurt in the fight for good.”
This romance story turns into a thriller story that you can’t put down. I loved how the love story grew as the story continued, you watched both Candice and Blake mature not only in their own lives but the lives of others as well. I loved the timeline and how and when the characters were introduced in a smooth way. I also love how raw Candice’s and Blake’s characters come across. Candice is the loss type of girl who knows what she wants but not how she wants it. She is misunderstood but is full of heart and truth. Blake is the typical man, horny and overly confident but has a soft spot of Candice and she changes his perspective of girls.
I loved the twists that Candice and Blake were thrown into as this romance turned into the thriller of a lifetime. Small town terrorist movements, a parents love and death. This war book just keeps getting better with every chapter. I love how Candice and Blake don’t automatically click like the typical love story and that made me follow more closely because I loved the envy and lust they craved but didn’t dive into right away.
“I will not risk losing another child to this war, so whatever had gone on with the pair of you, it’s not in the past. Do you understand?”
This book was definitely a winner in my books. I loved the author's voice through Candice and Blake as the duel perspective really made the book spark and explain so many things through the two different perspectives. I will definitely read this book again and I recommend it to lovers of romance, thriller and war-related books.
“I can’t watch the army destroy our girl.”
