His team is killed before his very eyes, and despite his efforts to save them, he’s captured and subjected to merciless torture—losing virtually every piece of his identity but his pulse. After his rescue, he returns home from Afghanistan, saddled with facing the daunting task of healing his physical scars as well as the invisible ones—his emotional demons. Dr. Presley Cole isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. Embarking on a new journey, she makes it her mission to prove to Hendy that his life isn’t over; that he’s worthy of love. Because sometimes even a phoenix needs help to rise...

My Review
Can we talk about that man's abs for a second?!!? Shew. *fans self* Oh, right, we're here for Hendy's story... I have been anxiously awaiting this book! And RC brought her A-game on this book.  It was freaking fantastic! I loved watching Hendy get acclimated back into the world but while he wanted people to think he was ok, he was lying to himself and others and struggled with life. He wasn't the same man he'd been going into war and this book was his journey. I thought RC captured it very well. Luckily for him, he had a great support system and had tons of friends looking out for him. It was a slow process and such a sweet and heartfelt story. I loved the pieces he shared with Presley and enjoyed their banter and their chemistry!
Hendy has been through a traumatic experience; he's not the same man he was going into the military. He's comfortable around his friends, but not in the public eye. He still has quite a bit of pain and has to work on his emotional self to completely heal.  However, he hasn't found anything that works.  My heart completely went out to Hendy. RC writes in such a way the reader feels his pain and feels for what the man had to endure. I LOVED the friendship between Hendy and Presley. I enjoyed the fact that they had to start out that way and little by little he started chipping away at her, but that wasn't his motive. He was truly an upstanding guy. It's no wonder he charmed the ladies! But get ready for ALL THE FEELS in this book! It was sad, sweet, endearing, sexy and OH-SO-GOOD! I couldn't get enough of Hendy and Presley and I can't recommend this book enough! Go get your copy today!
