In this tender military romance from the bestselling author of Hold on Tight—perfect for fans of of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery—a war-shattered veteran gets a second chance at love with the one that got away.
No girl can resist a man in uniform—especially if that man is Nate Riordan. But after an injury in the line of duty leaves Nate broken, body and soul, the soldier finds himself addicted to his pain meds, with no place to call home. Desperate for an escape, Nate reluctantly accepts a friend’s invitation to a new veterans’ retreat. Expecting a little R&R, Nate is shocked when the sight of his physical therapist opens up another old wound: heartbreak.
Years ago, Alia Drake fell hard for Nate, but never made her move. Instead, she set up her sister with the sexy, confident military man, a foolish decision that continues to haunt all three of them. Now, with Nate as her patient, she can make things right—even if it means getting too close for comfort. A healing touch and a little honesty work wonders, fueling a physical intimacy that crosses professional boundaries. This time, with desire in the air once more, Alia won’t hold anything back.
When Alia met Nate she thought he would never be interested in her so she set him up with her sister and ended up regretting it. When he comes back from war he is full of pain and anger and guilt. Alia can help with the pain. It's what she does and she is good at it. She also enjoys being needed. He doesn't want her help but agrees to let her try. They have some things to work through that make it difficult for them to be together no matter how much they might want to. I love this series. Great characters, lots of emotion. They stand alone but it's fun getting to see familiar characters.
