I give this book 4/5 glasses of wine!
My military career is over. Blue the hero, if he ever really existed, died in a blown-apart MRAP in Afghanistan. Blue the carefree college boy, the mellow music man, is all I want to be now. He’s all I can be. Blue the coward is all I have left.
I’ve been given a second chance. I just need to keep my mouth shut , my heart frozen, my secrets buried. All I have to do is wrestle my inner demons to the ground and never let them up.
Things get a lot more complicated, though, when Keegan shows up in my life. She thinks I’m her knight in shining armor, She thinks I’m a hero. She’s dead wrong. But I can’t tell her that.
Something about her sets my soul on fire. Something about her reminds me of the person I used to be. Something about her makes me willing to do anything to keep her safe.
Loving Keegan might be the one thing I’ve done right in my life. Loving her cannot possibly be wrong. Even if truly loving her means giving up my second chance and walking away from her for good. But I’m not sure I have the guts to do it…
Show me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy! Whew, where to begin?!
Have you ever done something that you didn’t want anyone to know about? Something that keeps entering your life when you wish it wouldn’t. What about escaping something that leaves you in a constant state of fear. Creeping up and forcing it’s way into everywhere you exist. Blue and Keegan sure do. The story kept me guessing, kept me wondering how things were going to play out.
Would recommend as a great YA romance. Was well written, has a great story line and lifelike characters you’ll love and hate!
