I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This story was everything I expected of a Nicole Snow story: gritty, edgy, drama and a good girl taming the bad boy who steals her heart. I love that everyone who deserved it got their HEA and that the damage done by the psychotic one didn't last forever.
There was a lot of ups and downs. The military aspect was believable without getting overly technical and/or gory. However, the stepmom was a little too far over the line psycho. I was disappointed in the father for being sucked into her crazy sphere. I loved the crazy that her best friend brought even though I felt she took too much advantage of the heroine. That's besties for you tho.
Overall, a great read. Emotionally, I was all over the place and the ending brought a feeling of "that's been done right".
