    Fantastic

    Finn's story - yes PLEASE!! And what a fantastic one it is!! I've been waiting since the beginning of the series and reading about Finn's accident to hear his story. He's making a recovery from his physical injuries but the process is long and hard. When his best friend and fellow Marine finally arrives stateside after an 18 month deployment, Finn knows Tanner will give him the kick in the ass he needs. These two along with Chris have been friends since their first deployment. Now that Chris isn't there between them the attraction that has always been there can no longer be denied. Tanner struggles though. Not necessarily about his sexuality but Don't Ask Don't Tell has been so ingrained in him that he struggles with letting others see him for who he really is. His parents don't know and his fellow Marines definitely don't know. To have more with Finn he will need to come to terms with letting people in. Is he ready for that or will he walk away from the greatest love he'll ever know? A fantastic romance between two incredible characters. Definitely a book I recommend.

    More Than Best Friends

    While Tanner s on a mission for the country, his two best friends/brothers, Chis and Finn, are in a deadly and near deadly accident. But he doesn't know anything about it until nine months later. Once he finds out that one of friends, Chris died an that Fin was in a coma is out of it, he comes home. But the truth is, he has to make sure that Finn is alive. Because his feeling for Finn is more than brotherly. But he's not ready to let anyone know, especially Finn. Finn is in a bad place right now. He just lost one of his best friends and the other one is half way around the world defending the country. So he going through a depression and withdrawal. That is until Tanner shows up on his doorsteps, now everything is falling into place. Tanner is only person he want to be around right now. The only person that he will allow near him at this time. But is it for selfish reasons? Now that they are both are together and grieving for the fallen friend/brother that was lost, guards are down. Things are starting to take a different direction that they don't see but see and want but don't want. Which road will they take? I loved this book. I could not put it down once I started reading it. I actually re-read the book again. You find yourself scream at Tanner at times for his stupidity. This is the third book in this series, It's a semi-stand alone book. I haven't read the first books, they give up more information of of what is going on. I can't wait to read the first two books of this series and any after this book. I highly recommend this book to others. I received this book as ARC in exchange for my honest review via NetGalley.

    I've been waiting for Finn's story; I loved it!

    The Farther He Runs is book 3 in the Kick series but can be read as a standalone. But if you’d like more background on Finn before you read it, check out book 1 of this series, The Harder He Falls. The books in this series have all be pretty emotional reads for me but this one probably was the one that shredded me the most. Finn was seriously injured in a rafting accident and nearly died. His rehabilitation has been a very slow process and he’s frustrated by all that he’s lost, including his best friend, Chris, who didn’t survive the accident. Tanner, Chris and Finn shared a deep connection of friendship and always had each other’s back whether deployed or stateside. Although all three men are gay they were not involved with each other sexually. Tanner stayed in the Marines when Chris and Finn retired and started Kick, an extreme adventure company, but he was also a partner in the venture. Tanner returns from deployment to find his world turned upside down. Chris is dead and Finn is not the same man he was the last time Tanner saw him. The Farther He Runs is such a beautiful love story. Tanner and Finn have loved each other for a long time but neither of them has admitted it to the other. Tanner has 5 weeks of leave to spend with Finn and they escape to the place they’ve always sought refuge in when Chris was with them. Finn finally begins to heal and their relationship becomes what it was always meant to be. This is one of those books that made me feel so much and ends up being so hard for me to describe in a review. Tanner and Finn, individually, have a lot of things to overcome but they finally admit their feelings for each other and realize they are stronger together than apart. I love Ms. Aicher’s writing. She always transports me to another place which is what I love about reading a good book. This series has been one of my favorites in the M/M genre this year and I highly recommend it. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. Reviewed for xtreme-delusions.com.

    Dark Yet Hopeful Read

    Generally, I prefer feel good books. HEAs with only a smidge of conflict or sadness. This book had more than a smidge of sadness and angst. Still, this was a good book with interesting and well developed characters. I always find m/m romances sadder with more drama simply because gay men (and women) were persecuted greatly in the past, and still face discrimination today. This said, Tanner and Finn were dealing with a more than discrimination. Tanner and Finn are dealing with the death of their close friend Chris. In addition to mourning Chris, Finn is still healing emotionally and physically from the accident that killed Chris and Tanner is suffering from PTSD from being a Marine in extreme situations for almost 20 years. Both Tanner and Finn always had a greater than friendship type of love for each other, so it was easy to see why they would end up in a romance. It took a large chunk of the book for the romance to develop, and I found this a little annoying. At the same time, I understood why the romance couldn't jump off immediately in the book. Overall, this was a good book and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys romance with a little bit of drama. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Real, raw and emotional!

    *Review copy provided by NetGalley and the publisher for an honest review* This is the third book in the KICK series and it is definitely both emotional and hot! Lynda Aicher takes you on quite a rollercoaster with these marines, brothers and best friends. Finn Kelley is recovering following emerging from a coma that was brought on by a rafting accident. He's been in rehab and is slowly getting back to life and figuring out how he goes forward. One of his two best friends, Chris, was killed in the accident, so when Tanner Dorsey, the third of the best friends/brothers finally returns home on leave, it's not only time to grieve the loss of their comrade, but also to finally take stock of the feelings he's concealed for nearly a decade. When Tanner returns, he sees the toll that the accident has taken on Finn. He's weak, both physically and mentally, and his recovery is going very slowly. Tanner has loved Finn for as long as he can remember. He's only ever openly showed his love as a best friend/brother, but there is no question that he wishes it could be more. Knowing how much his friend is struggling, he's determined to do whatever he can to help him heal. Tanner and Finn go away to get solace and to grieve for their friend. While they are away, they not only find that having someone to lean on makes the process easier, they also find that maybe they don't feel all that differently about one another. Will they be able to take the next steps and be the love that the other needs? Will Tanner be able to stick with Finn and not run back to active duty? This was a very real, raw, emotional book. It had highs and lows and it shows the struggle that people go through on a daily basis as they grieve and also as they fall in love. Falling in love can be both amazing and terrifying and we see that with these two strong willed men along the way. Kudos to Lynda Aicher for crafting such an emotional tale, but one that in the end showcases that love is always one of the strongest healers.
