Product Description

Product Description

War almost destroyed them, but they survived thanks to their brother in arms Declan.

Coming home wasn't as sweet as they'd hoped, lives had moved on without them. For one it was all too much.

United by grief and angered by injustice the Wounded Heroes vow to always be there for each other.

Little do they know that's going to come sooner rather than later.

HASH(0xa0fe89e4) out of 5 stars A second chance at life, while still haunted by mistakes of the past. April 19 2015
By Alice's Book Wonderland- Alice Smith and Diana Hutchinson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ava Manello is one of my all time favorite authors. Her writing is unpredictable, full of risks, and always an emotional roller coaster of action and love. Declan, the first book in her new Wounded Heroes series has all of the great characteristics of her other books, and as a result is an absolutely fabulous read. Although this is a standalone book, it is a spin off series from the Severed MC Series that she co-writes with K. T. Fisher, one of my all time favorite reads!

Declan has seen more tragedy than anyone should have to see. He bravely served his country overseas. When he returns home, he is searching for direction and a way to start life over. Buying a bar and moving away from the only family he has left, leads him to Severed, Australia.

Holly has been staying with the Severed MC since the untimely deaths of her brother and best friend. She wants to gain her independence, and when she hears the new bar in town is hiring, she applies for a job. When sparks start to fly between her and the new owner, she is unsure how to handle it.

This book is a definite must read and is extremely HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

HASH(0xa0b91cfc) out of 5 stars One brilliant new series you must one click March 27 2015

Declan, book 1 in the Wounded Heroes series by Ava Manello, follows ex Australian Special Air Regiment Corporal Declan Delaney. You may recall this character from Carnal Persuasion the 4th book by Ava and K T Fisher and I for one was ecstatic to get this book about this illusive, mysterious character. He is a damaged man, his time served for his country may have ended but his mind is still battling the demons left within as he struggles with life out of the service along with his fellow comrades.

He and his men faced horrendous ordeals whilst in service and each find their own way of coping. But, when events unfold beyond his control, as their Corporal he takes it as a failing and Declan realises he needs to take a road trip to decide what to do next with his life. He ends up in Severed and this is where the time frames overlap with Carnal Persuasion but are told from Declan's pov where he is trying to get a fresh start by running his own bar and renovating it. In Declan's life though danger and chaos follow him at every turn. When Severed MC problems land at his door he decides to help, his need to protect is inbuilt and engrained, so with his 'contacts' and background knowledge from the military he's the perfect man to help. The question is will it cost him more than he thought as he has the beginnings of something forming with Holly; The Prez's niece from Severed MC who knows full well about loss and the dangers of getting embroiled in MC issues.

Can Declan get the fresh start he needs to bring him back to himself after months of fighting his inner torment or will helping the Severed and Carnal MC with his brothers in arms be a step too close into familiar territory and cost them all dearly again??

This book handles the topic of PTSD brilliantly, it was clearly researched and illustrates how it's not just the servicemen who are effected but their family's too. I always enjoy reading the Severed series with hot bikers and their exploits in Australia and now Ava has brought in Army men to add to the mix via Declan and his backstory which had me hooked from the truly gripping first page and I hope we get plenty more from Declan and his Wounded Heroes.

HASH(0xa17d8b28) out of 5 stars LOVE IT March 30 2015

WOW cant I just say that I love the way how Ava writes her story, I have read all the Severed MC books and the Strip teaser and strip back and I love them. But this book I love it even more, I am so glad that this is Declan and Holly story, this book made me cried in some part, and made me go AWW in other parts, I am gone keep this short since I don't want to give anything away.

If you had read the Severed series than you already met Holly, she is the Pres nice also Justice sister, also if you read Cowboy and Lucy story than you met Declan who is Lucy boss and the owner of the bar. I love it cause when I read of him in the Severed books I wanted to know what his story is, and let me tell you I am so happy that we get to get in his head and know whats going on.

The story begging with Declan when his having one of his nightmares, and now his back home but he is feeling lost, and don't know what to do or how to feel, he think that he has fail his team and the guilt for don't let him move on, after one of his friend die, his best friend Cam find him and tell him to go on a trip with him to Severed to see an old friend of his, Declan agree to with him, but what he was not expecting was for him to feel right at home, and decide to buy the bar, that's when he get to see how things are, and that's when he get to meet Holly and have feeling for her, that's when he decide to give it a chance.

I love the way Declan is Love it how he is always their for his friends, and love how hi is with Holly, I really love and enjoy reading this book, Author Ava Manello THANK YOU for introducing me again to some awesome characters and this wonderful book love it and cant wait to read more of this series.

HASH(0xa0ac95e8) out of 5 stars Great start to a new series March 29 2015
By Fiona Wilson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first book by the author I have read. Although it features characters previously written about in the Severed MC series I honestly didn't feel I was missing anything having not read that series. The author adds in enough back story that I could follow it quite easily.

Declan is a very proud serviceman. He has helped protect his country to the best of his abilities, leading his men into dangerous situations. Unfortunately one particular incident leaves one of his best friends injured, and Declan suffering nightmares.

Following another tragedy Declan decides he needs a break. Another friend suggests a road trip to Severed. They head off, unaware of what lies ahead. What Declan finds in this small town will change his life more than he first realises, in more ways than one.

Is Severed the place for Declan to settle down, or could the underlying troubles be the end of him, and his friends?

One of the overwhelming themes in this story is friendship. Declan has friends he can count on to help him as soon as he asks, and I would hope everyone experiences that kind of friendship at least once in their lives.

Declan comes over as a very loyal person, but someone who has problems which need solving before he can move on. Will he find that, or are his problems too deep rooted?

As soon as I finished this story I bought the Severed MC series. I look forward to reading them, and can't wait for the next book in this new series.

HASH(0xa17d6504) out of 5 stars Fantastic start to a new series March 28 2015
By Lisa - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Declan's story is one most of us can't even begin to comprehend. Coming home from a war with deep psychological scars and not knowing how to deal with life in the real world would have a profound effect anyone. It is a story of recovery and the path to healing. There is no quick fix but it takes the events of this story to put him on the right path. It is difficult to know what Declan is thinking or feeling most of the time because he plays his cards very closely to his chest.

With Declan ending up in Severed, we get to see some old favourites and how, despite all it's problems, Severed is a great place with a closeness and a healing nature about it.

The guys have escaped the horrors of battle but not unscathed. Ava Manello has given us a whole new set of heroes to get to know, to understand and to fall in love with. I salute Ava Manello for bringing us these wounded heroes with their unique complexities.
