Shrapnel from an explosion tore up Jackson’s leg and ended his career as a Navy SEAL. Being forced into the civilian world was bad enough, but being told he’s crazy is intolerable. No matter what the doctors or anyone else tells him, he knows a supposed ally was responsible for his injury, and that same man is determined to shut Jackson up for good.

When Jackson sees a kayaker clinging to his boat from the balcony of his beach house, his instincts tell him something dire is about to happen. Jackson rescues the injured man and insists on hiding him until a former SEAL teammate arrives. As Jackson struggles with separating reality from soul-shattering flashbacks, the injured man’s compassion and growing trust tear down his barriers, and Jackson begins to wonder if his heart is as dead as he’d assumed.

My View:

What happens when you are a dedicated Seal whose team is compromised on a mission? That deceit leads to watching your friend die in front of you and leaves so injured the doctors only just manage to save your leg. Your body will never work the same and your career as a Seal is over. The pain of your injury is crippling, but worse everybody you need to trust you thinks you are crazy. Nobody believes your story; they blame amnesia, drugs and PTSD. You are now out there alone, still getting death threats, still fearing for your life.

This is Jacksons current life. Just as he thinks he has found somewhere safe he spies a man that looks suspiciously like him, shot and clinging to a Kayak in a dangerous current. Summoning up all the strength he has he manages to rescue the man and after telling him his story whilst trying to convince him it is not safe to notify the authorities, Addy may just end up thinking he is as crazy as everyone else.

Jackson is determined to keep Addy safe, blaming himself for the other mans injuries. Calling for backup from an old Seal friend Jackson finds himself telling Addy more about his past and how he feels than he has ever told anyone, including his shrink. A bond develops between the two men just as the first gun is fired.
Jackson is a mess of a man. Injured, hurt that no one believes him, missing his old life with no idea how to live as a civilian and suffering from PTSD. Addy is the first person he has felt a connection with since ‘The Incident’. With the bad guys captured Jackson is going to have to man up and believe he can have what he actually fears the most.

Looking forward to Book 2!
