military ops He s not gorgeous he s downright scary scarred and tattooed, shaved head, etc The heroine is also scarred damaged, and though attractive, has some issues to work out Honestly, there s not much of a huge plot beyond the love story, but that s okay It was enough to round the story out, without overshadowing the slow building romance Oh, and an eentsy beentsy bit of paranormal ish in the guise of some psychic shit I liked liked the story, and would give it a solid 3.5 stars If you like Tara Janzen, you would probably like this, too So just a few days ago I was thinking that I haven t

wrapped up in the characters that I was sad to see the percentage of my kindle going higher and higher Thorne is a genius and she sees and knows things before they happen so when she see s a girl

love with Grace and Dagger Jack but it wasn t just them I loved everyone in this book The side characters were so great and I loved them so much that I hope we getbooks in the future with their stories It s obvious that Rhea Rhodan loves the characters in this book they were so full and rich and real And Jack was one of the best heroes I have ever read he he loved Grace with everything he had and would do anything for her as long as they could be together she healed him and he healed her He was possessive and crazy in love and would kill for Grace if he needed to without a second thought Ok so this is one of the hardest reviews I have written because there s so much I don t want to spoil and yet I want to tell you it all because it was SO great this was the best book I have read in months I love Rhea Rhodan she is a genius with words and story telling I can t wait till I have the privilege of readingfrom her This is a book worth taking a chance on in was moving and powerful and beautiful I did not want to put this book down, which is perhaps the biggest compliment I can make about a book I started it in the afternoon and finished somewhere around 2 30 in the morning Luckily I didn t have to make dinner The main characters, Thorne Grace and Dagger Jack Daggery are two broken people, one bearing literal and figurative scars, the other, a scary hulk of a man

the two, the barriers that are worn down, with a whole lot of action in between I didn t know where the action was going to take me, so I went along for the ride, and it didn t disappoint Two thumbs

friend I loved watching him struggle with coming to care for Thorne, especially believing Thorne a little gay man Just really cute when it wasn t mean to be cute Maybe that should have been my first clue I commented recently to someone that I ve had some really good books just fizzle pffft Rather like a balloon you lost hold of when it was almost blown up, it just makes that awful raspberry sound as it sails in the air and everyone laughs This book was that, but I wasn t laughing I hated it, because I really warmed to the characters Just when you were comfortable with their grittiness, the author lost it She just lost it Like a sneeze that didn t happen Just goneYou may like this one better than I did I am seriously disappointed because I loved Dagger and Thorne and I loved them together until it just fizzled.Happy Reading maybe Two haunted souls seeking peace, find each other insteadKidnapped by human monsters, Grace Thorne was ripped from her quiet intellectual life and left deeply scarred She s hidden herself for five years, but there s no escape from the nightmares of the past, or visions of the future When one foretells tragedy, she gambles her fragile defenses on a haunted man to prevent it only to discover love is the biggest risk of allJack Daggery doesn t need a mirror to know why people avoid him, but he doesn t really care After years working deep undercover, immersed in betrayal and death, all he wants is some peace and the quiet security company he co ownsDagger has no idea why the foul mouthed little server of questionable gender bothers him But he does know that living with the ghosts of his past was hard enough without being tormented by the mysterious thorn in his side or finding how much he needs her I really enjoyed Finding Grace Grace Thorne was so funny that in the beginning I had to table the book while hubby was sick next to me Nothing says uncaring like a person enjoying themselves while you are moaning in pain SighI like

were off to a new one There were several.But what the book did well it did so well The dialogue was realistic and Grace was hilarious She made me laugh so much that I loved when she had to speak I believed in her and even when she became somewhat of a pollyanna I still liked her I really enjoyed the book and I liked Jack s transition Favorite quotes Oh, you noticed, did you That leotard doesn t hide much besides her skin, does it Not like those rags she runs around in I was so disappointed the first time I saw her in it But it appears my loss is your gain And oh my, what a gain Mm mmm

polished, gentleman and they ended up like a cartoon characters to me Our hero Dagger though is presented in a you get what you see kind of way He is big, scary, can back his swagger, socially challenged, and deadly And I am glad he is presented that way because it made his several demons, flaws, and shortcomings NOT an overkill like other books, thus made the story and character believable A real modern alpha hero who loved the h with a single mindedness of the bigger they are the harder they fall man as one character pointed out Mostly, I love the hero because his love for the heroine does not exclude the world around him, instead it made his heart bigger for his heroine, his friends, and his estranged brother although in my way of thinking the bro can just get his high and mighty behind out and good riddance.The heroine Thorne Grace is one hell of a character She has many faces, many sides, and many quirks that just plain shocking, hilarious, scary, and heartbreaking You first meet her and she makes you laugh just from what came out of her mouth, then she made you frown in puzzlement on who what she is, and then will break your heart just from reading how much she has to overcome and by this time you will keep on reading just to see her succeed and then she goes on to show the readers the heart of a loving woman inside all those outer contradiction I love this character not just because she s not a generic cartoonish heroine but also because the author did well by presenting her trials just right not too angsty for angst s sake and not too rigidly clean just the meat and the bone All I can say is I hope it will be a while yet before I read another well presented heartbreaking character like her.Their romance as a whole is just as believable I love that most of their conflicts as one recommendation said are resolved as they arise without being stretched too thin just for conflict s sake Story was plotted not like most romance I like that their love is not inclusive to just the two of them but it was strong enough to grow with their family and friends approval and disapproval Lol, I know I am gushing but their coming together is not that common lust at first meeting because it developed in a believable logical way that made me believe that their HEA stands on solid foundation and will truly last long.Great cast of secondary character as well They will make you laugh, mad, annoyed, frustrated and laugh someI love the created world as well and even the twists and turns that I did not like particularly concerning the H s bro made for a world I do not mind visiting again.4.5 star just because of a personal preference differences Like I said I would be happier just to show the H s brother the door But mostly because the H obeying the h s request that is so against his possessive and protective nature where the main villain is concern is off character Spoiler When the h asked H not to kill Major D which the bloodthirsty in me thinks hethan deserves and when he agreed readily Ithan raised my eyebrows because that is so against his nature Spoiler Ends Other than the mentioned issued, this is one great read to me and yes, recommended with two thumbs up Note Read thru a friend s generosity
