    Sexy, damaged S.E.A.L. + Feisty redhead= Hawt Read

    *I don't give spoilers~I bought my own copy of Her Survivor, and this is my honest review. Navy Seal Dustin Frank is an alpha hero that's beyond broken. After being involved in a firefight overseas, he's sent back to the U.S. with a lost leg--a former shell of himself. When his former commander calls on him to take some time and heal at his Texas ranch, run by his feisty mother June, Dusty decides maybe some R & R will do him good. When they get to town, however, the commander decides to do a bit of matchmaking, and he asks Dusty to help the local firebrand bookstore owner, Kelcee Todd, do some renovations on her store. At first, Dusty declines. But upon meeting the woman, he decides there's something more to Kelcee Todd than her bookish ways--she has a secret, and Dusty's insatiable curiosity prods him into helping--and protecting--her. In return, Kelcee helps heal his soul, both through friendship and the amazing healing properties of the clandestine waterfall once used by the Native Americans. I'm a total sucker for military romances, and I love Ms. Davis' works. I've read several of her books, including her Wild Heat series, and as her first military romantic suspense, Her Survivor, doesn't disappoint. Written in her classic style of heroes and heroines that are hot and sexy for one another, Her Survivor touches on PTSD and the horrible nightmares that our soldiers live after serving our country while bringing in elements of light-hearted comedy that will keep you both laughing and crying through the entire book. As in many of Ms. Davis' books, her fantabulous secondary characters will keep you rolling on the floor! One of my favorite things about Ms. Davis' books are her strong characters, and both Dusty and Kelcee are so complex and relatable that you root for their HEA from the very beginning. And, you become highly invested in her secondary characters as well! Mama June is a spitfire...you never know what's going to come out of her mouth. I can't wait to read the next book in this series, Hers to Heal. I only hope Ms. Davis will write the commander's story as part of this series...as the sort of patriarch of this new Black Eagle Ops group, he needs his HEA, too!

    Book was not for me.

    I’m not sure where to start on this one…. The book was slow and I was bored. First, I’m not a big contemporary reader. I will pick one up every now and then, just for a change and to try something different. I’ve also never read a military wounded warrior book before, so Her Survivor was my first. I liked the concept of a wounded warrior and a small town. A place for him to recuperate and re-acclimate to life with the help of his old commander and friend. But this story had way too much going on: a solider dealing with PTSD and loss of a limb, a magical pool with healing powers, small town life, black ops, witness protection program, Russian mob, and a love story. The flow of the story felt off. It jumped around and had abrupt changes. I lost track of what was going on and had to re-read a few spots over to see the change from one scene to the next. One such area was at the beginning when he’s in the hospital doing physical therapy and then in the next sentence he’s a sleep and having a flashback dream of what happened. These types of abrupt changes happened in several locations throughout the story. The lines the characters spoke felt like every cliché you would read in a romance novel. There was also a lot of needles talk (filler material) that didn’t go anywhere. Several of the storylines where’t fully explored either. Dustin and Kelcee’s romance happened way too fast, was predictable, too easy, and they hoped into bed too quickly for my liking. I did’t feel like the couple’s romance was growing over months. It felt like everything took place in a two week; maybe one month timeframe. The sex scenes where blasé. At one point we started a sex scene, but then didn’t finish and moved on to breakfast the next day. This is another example of the abrupt change from one scene to another. Wounded warriors and PTSD: I don’t have any experiences with anyone who has suffered from PTSD or lose of limbs in war. I do have great respect for those that have fought, continue to fight, & protected this country. With that said; I don’t fell that they would do some of the things Dustin did, maybe they would, but I felt that the character wasn’t ready for the confrontations and divulging of personal life experiences that happened. At one point he takes Kelcee out to dinner. His face is all scared up at this point and so people stare. One kid, maybe about 6 to 8 years, says something not nice and so Dustin stops to talk to him and his parents. He volunteers a lot of information in regards to what happened, his lost leg, and more to complete strangers. I get he wants to educate them and also not feel like a freak, but something didn’t feel right about the scene. Last, where was the action? Ya, he’s retired, but his friend is starting a Black Ops team and the series is called Black Eagle Ops, so you would think we would have some action/adventure. The only action we get is between the 80% to 90% range when the evil mafia comes to kill Kelcee. I don’t want to say I expected more, but then again I did. Her Survivor was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.
