After three agonizing years of surgeries and rehab. U.S. Army veteran Jason Donahue is ready to leave the Iraq War in the past and rejoin society. Yet, no matter the success he achieves at work, people wince every time they see him.
Everyone but Emily Riley. From the first, the beautiful redhead looks past his disfigurement and sees him. In return, Jason wants to buy her everything she deserves, starting with her dream home and going from there. Yet Emily has scars of her own, a past she’s not ready to reveal. Only when they both come clean, when they view each other through eyes of trust and love, will they know that, when a good man and a good woman give each other their heart, the two will always have more than enough.

“Well, that explains it, then,” Mr. Harrington said.
“Explains what, Mr. Harrington?” Jason was puzzled and didn’t even try to hide it.
“Why you’re so interested in Emily. She and that money of hers could go a long way toward helping you catch up financially, as you put it.”
Jason felt the blood drain from his head. Emily exchanged a frantic look with her sister. “I-I’m sorry, sir,” he stammered. “What did you say?”
“I said that Emily and that money of hers could go a long way.”
Jason just stared at the old man for a minute. “What money, Mr. Harrington?”
“Oh, don’t be ridiculous, young man. The trust fund. The Harrington trust fund. She’s bound to have told you about it.”
He lifted his chin and looked the old man in the eye. “I didn’t know Emily had a trust fund. She’s never mentioned it to me.” He looked at Emily across the table. “You’ve never said a word, Emily. Have you?”
MY PERSONAL REVIEW
This is the first book I have read of Emily’s and almost from the start I was hooked. As an Army Veteran myself I immediately connected with Jason. I have an unending love for our soldiers for our wounded warriors and Jason and what he went through just went straight to my heart. Emily, oh spunky, heart of gold Emily – it takes a strong woman to fall for a man who has been through what Jason has been through and Emily is that woman.
But…… what would a story be without secrets, without issues, without a past… And both of them have them. Can they overcome them… Well I certainly am not going to spoil it for you. LOL you have to read the book to find out.
I will tell you that this is one amazing story. I am a huge supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project and this story has not one, not two, but three wounded warriors in it. Each with varying degree’s of injuries or PTSD and there are scenes in here that will have you running for your tissue box. It shows their struggles after the war, how they see themselves, how others see them.
The story is mainly about Jason and Emily and their budding and struggling relationship. The insecurities they have about themselves and with each other. And of course a big secret that one of them has and an obsession that the other has. It all comes to a really big head and as we all know that usually means trouble. But, this story does have a happy ending.
No wait this story has a FABULOUS ending……….
