Another fantastic Shadow Warriors book that kept me glued to the pages until I finished it Leah is a helicopter pilot filling in for an injured pilot in the Shadow Suadron at Camp Bravo She loves what she does and has an excellent reputation as a pilot The bad feeling she gets about the latest mission to pick up a team of SEALs is realized when the chopper is hit by an RPG and goes down Leah is the only survivorKell is a SEAL sniper assigned to the area to watch Taliban activity and look for the local leader He witnesses the attack but is too late to stop it He does find Leah and gets her away before the Taliban fighters can find her He s surprised to discover that the pilot is a woman and takes her to one of the caves that he s made into his shelter and treats her injuries I loved the uick connection that Leah and Kell made Though she was disoriented and in pain when she awoke Kell s voice made her feel safe His care and kindness and gentle touch is something she d never experienced from a man It also affects her in ways she doesn t understand Leah is cautious around men She d been married for three years to a man who abused her physically mentally and emotionally She s surprised by how easy it is to trust Kell something in his eyes breaking through her barriersKell had uite a few reactions to Leah Her beauty hit him first as he was working to treat her injuries with a physical attraction he knows can go nowhere She is an officer and he is enlisted so a relationship isn t possible After she is awake and he learns about her there is the respect that he he feels because of the job she does And after she awakens from a nightmare he discovers a feeling of protectiveness wanting to stop the fear he sees in her eyes Kell is surprised by the things he is starting to feel as he d had no intention of getting involved with another woman while he s still serving He d been married before and his wife couldn t handle the long separations and danger of his job Because of the presence of a large number of Taliban it isn t possible to get a chopper in to rescue Leah right away Over the next few days as Leah heals they slowly get to know each other I loved Kell s sensitivity to Leah From some things she has said he suspects what her past holds and he s horrified when something he says brings on a flashback I loved seeing how an event from his own past helps him figure out what to do when he is with her He s slowly able to show her what an incredible woman she really is Thanks to him Leah begins to feel confident in herself on a personal level Her heart and soul begin to heal and she finds herself wanting to trust him with her body as well Even there his sensitivity has him waiting for her never pushing her for than she s ready for When their location stops being secure they have to leave the safety of the cave and head for a safer area I loved this section of the book The descriptions of the area they traveled through were vivid and I could easily picture it as I read The intensity of their attempts to avoid the growing number of Taliban kept me riveted as they got closer to their destination I enjoyed the brief mention of Khat from Taking Fire and the stop at the cave she used for so long I loved the way they met up with Kell s SEAL team and the descriptions of who they were Once they arrive back on base Kell and Leah have to be careful not to give away their relationship any time they meet Throughout the first part of the book Leah s ex husband was hovering in the background Though he pretends to be anxious for her return in reality he is planning to blame the crash on her He is looking for a way to destroy her career Kell and Leah are worried about what he might do and Kell enlists the help of his brother SEALs in watching out for her We also see that Hayden s abuses have continued When his latest victim comes out to Leah with her plans to press charges Leah realizes that it s time for her to come forward also She s afraid but with Kell s support she is determined to make sure Hayden is punished I loved seeing how the other SEALs also were behind her and their efforts to help Leah also has to deal with her father a man who would easily win the award for worst father His indifference to her and support of Hayden was just sickening I was really waiting for him to get what was coming to him though what he got was not what I expected That confrontation was really intense and I loved seeing Leah stand up to him What happened next was nerve wracking and seeing Kell and Clutch in action was amazingThe ending was fantastic with Leah healing physically and emotionally I loved the way that she and Kell kept in touch while they were apart and they continued to learn about each other Their trip to Kentucky to see his parents was sweet and his two brothers were great It was terrific to see Leah and Kell talk about their future and what they wanted I loved learning something new about Kell and his dreams I was a bit surprised at Leah s choice but happy that she had the confidence to make it and know that Kell would support her in it

Please note This story deals with domestic abuse and rape Both are addressed in my review Please take this into consideration before reading further andor purchasing this bookThere wasn t a whole lot of exchange friendly or otherwise between the Americans and the Taliban but there was this intensity to this story that left me on the edge of my seat Because while Kell and Leah holed up in caves they both knew that danger awaited them and I don t just mean on their journey to Bravo but when they got there as wellI really loved watching Kell and Leah s relationship grow Leah had issues before she landed in Kell s arms and they weren t small either Distrust in men daddy issues physical abuse and spousal rape You d never know it from Ms McKenna s description of her though but then you re not supposed to judge a book by its coverThe first time Leah yelled in her sleep my heart dropped It seems to do that a lot when I read these kinds of stories I thought Kell would be cautious around her maybe treat her with kid gloves or avoid her altogether He didn t The he learned about Leah the he wanted to protect her keep her safe keep her with him And the he learned about Leah s ex husband a pilot who was out to get her at any cost the he wanted to run his fist through the bastard s faceAnd I wanted him to have that chance Her ex deserved that and so much for what he did to Leah during their married years using her to forward his military career threatening her into agreeing raping her if she didn t comply I hated him and I didn t meet him until further on in this story By then I wanted him to meet then fists of Kell s SEAL brothers so he could understand how you don t go abusing people weaker than you just because you canThen there was her ex s attempted rape of another female pilot Leah had already been through so much by this point in the story that I wished Ms McKenna hadn t written this turn of events I almost uit reading because I wasn t sure I wanted to read one heinous act her ex committed I really didn t I left my reader on the bed for a few hours hoping I d actually forget But I didn t I went back and finished it I needed Leah to stand tall in that instant I needed to see what she would do Would she cower and ignore the other woman s plight Or would she stand up with the other woman and bring her ex to justiceShe did herself and Kell proud by taking that chance risking her career and finally yes finally standing up to that bastard I cheered out loud for her bravery because it was a long time coming and I anxiously waited for him to get what was coming to himThrough all of this Kell was Leah s rock The men in her life had failed her and had caused her not to trust men in general but Kell showed her that her trust in him wasn t misplaced that he d earned the right to have it that he would protect it like he would her His freakishly accurate ability to read Leah helped his cause For all that he could see in her he never pushed for than she was willing to give His gentleness and concern enabled her to trust him with her body her heart and her brokennessIt is rare that I read an active military duty romance Most are post military duty dealing with PTSD and the soldier s return to civilian life This is one of a few active military duty romances I have read and I am so glad I did I love that Ms McKenna didn t shy away from hard to deal with issues I m glad she didn t downplay them in favor for romance and that she paired a patient caring man with a woman who needed and would appreciate both ualities in himA terrific story from beginning to end this is one I ll read again and one I ll definitely recommend45Received from TLC Books for an honest review
