About the Author
JR Bryce has been writing since she could read, with varying levels of success. She lives in her office corner with a man-eating Chihuahua draped across her lap, her real live Evil Muse mind-controlling her via electronic communication, and writing like a crazy person while her all too precocious spawnlings plot each others' murders and her husband runs away in a vain attempt to save his sanity. Fortunately, the Oregon Coast has lots of things to distract him so she can get the words on paper... She loves to hear from her readers! You can reach her online in any of these places, but email or Facebook are your best bets. Twitter: @JessR_Bryce Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AuthorJRBryce E-mail: authorJRBryce@gmail.com

The story itself was enjoyable; however, there were moments in which I struggled with it. The first quarter part of the book, there was various third persons POV. I understand the essential to introduce all the characters, or set the ground for possible future books, but in the infancy of a story, taking the focus away from the main characters distracts you for the story itself. It was difficult to connect with the main character when everyone else is having a perceptive within the story. This was a huge struggle for me. Some of those POV could have been omitted because it did nothing for the story. A small inconvenience was some of the military acronyms. When writing a military story, please don't assume your readers know what some of those terms means. Abbreviate after you state what it is.
The other part I struggled with was the heroine. The author introduced her a little passed a quarter in, and unfortunately her POV was only alternating half of the time. For me, this where the story actually begins. It's an insta-love romance between two broken people, piecing themselves together. Their coupling was sexy, however, it could have used a little more spice in detailing. I was hoping (expecting) for a little more fire between them.
As stated in the beginning this is about a man who is a hero. A man overcoming his past, getting a grip of his present, and paving a way for his future. In overall, the story itself was good for someone debuting in writing. It could use some assistance in the area of content, where it has a better flow, less fluff. Some areas were overly elaborated making it longer to get to the point. The characters get their HEA which is great, but the story itself ends in somewhat of a cliffhanger. But the next book is in progress.
