I love this story of two would be “broken” people putting each other back together, to become even better than they were before. It is a wonderful journey to go on with them. The way they learn to lean on each other in a time of crisis is beyond wonderful to watch as the reader. ~ KcLu, Guilty Pleasures
Attraction, fear, danger—an unlikely recipe for healing scars.
In the year since Ellie escaped The Scientist’s ghastly dungeon, she still can’t stop looking over her shoulder. Or stop feeling guilty over the man who sacrificed so much to save her.
He lost everything. His career, his aspirations—even part of his body. It’s no wonder he wants nothing to do with her. Too bad he’s the only man she can think about.
Lucas has vowed to stay away from Ellie, but not for the reason she thinks. The woman he craves doesn’t need to waste her life taking care of a man with a missing leg, not when she needs to focus on her own healing.
Despite the best matchmaking attempts of the Men in Blue—and their wives—the emotional and physical gap between them seems uncrossable. Until Ellie is threatened again, and the only choice is to work together until she’s safe.
But to stay in the land of the living, they’ll both have to fight through their pain—and relive a few nightmares—to guarantee their demons won’t destroy her future.
Contains an alpha male with a broken body, but whose best bits are in fine working order. And a woman who survived hell, and is determined to fit enough of their jagged edges together to make a whole. Vivid PTSD flashbacks of sexual violence could be disturbing for some readers.
Review copy provided for an honest review
There are some series that stay with you long after you finish each book. For me Men in Blue is that series. From the first moments in Night is Darkest I have been hooked big time. This book lives up to that love and more. These characters have had my heart for a while now, but seeing them lean on each other to mend their hearts and minds is truly a work of art. Romantic Suspense is not my genre of choice, but there are a small handful of authors that can make me automatically dive into one. Jayne is at the top of that list.
Ellie is one of those female characters that you can just look up to. Her fierce determination to not let the past beat, makes you just route for her all the more. I love the feistiness that Lucas brings out in her, and how it surprises him to see those parts of her personality. The things that were done to her didn’t break her, and being with him makes even her see it.
Lucas is a man that needs to see that he didn’t loose himself, when he lost that chunk of his leg. While his body may have healed, his emotional state is what needs the work now. It is hard for him to get past either of their issues from the past, but I think Ellie is hardheaded enough to make him see that neither of them is truly broken.
I love this story of two would be “broken” people putting each other back together, to become even better than they were before. It is a wonderful journey to go on with them. The way they learn to lean on each other in a time of crisis is beyond wonderful to watch as the reader. I can’t recommend this book and series enough!!! I could continue telling all the greatness that I find wonderful about it, but I don’t want to spoil this greatness for you!! I hope you love it as much as I have.
