Nanee's Review of Alive Day The Homefront Trilogy by Rebecca Crowley
A pain beyond hope of healing…a love that could put the pieces back together.
Army infantry Captain Ethan Fletcher’s Air Force colonel father disapproved his choice of military branch, but Ethan didn’t care. He wanted his boots on the ground among the men he led, not to be flying high above the fray.
But after a particularly violent tour in Afghanistan costs the lives of some of his men—and nearly his own—his faith in service is shaken, his belief in himself shattered. The last thing he needs is some psych geek getting into his head, especially one who’s strong, stubborn, and sexy as hell.
Psychologist Mia Levin’s study of the 13th Infantry’s Echo Company could vault her career to the next level, and change the way the Army handles returning soldiers. But first she has to get past the unit’s overprotective captain—and keep him far from her fragile heart.
When a fender bender brings Ethan running to Mia’s rescue, the threads of a tenuous attraction begin to intertwine and strengthen into a bond that could heal them both—if they aren’t too far gone for love to reach.
Warning: Contains a brooding Army officer, a haunted academic, and a stolen moment in a bookstore that may short-circuit your eReader.
Love this series, I absolutely love the characters especially Ethan. After reading book one Boots on the Ground I couldn't wait to read Ethan's story, if there ever was a character who needed and deserved a HEA it is Ethan. Besides that he's sexy as hell, a hero and has a body that a greek god would envy he is tough as nails, broken and scared of living life when some of his men didn't. Mia is tough too but also has past hurts that enables her to move forward but when she starts to feel something for Ethan and him her that's when the world starts turning for them again. I loved them together, I thought they were perfect for each other, love Ethan's buddies are back to support him. I know I already said it but Ethan just has a huge heart, he lives for his job and those in his command and now Mia. Loved this story. Can't wait to read more by this author and in this series. 5 stars
