Growing up a military brat and spending eight years overseas with the Army Medical Corps, clinical social worker, Willa Smith, has had enough of rules and regulations. Still able to work with veterans as she did at the VA Hospital, she is much happier at the new and far more relaxed South Avenue Shelter, until one of its residents is implicated in a murder.
Former military turned security operative, Dimas Mazur, has worked for PASS security, his brother’s company, since he returned stateside after a disabling injury. The job keeps him busy, but when a homeless veteran he knows runs into trouble with the law, he doesn’t hesitate to jump in. The strong-headed counselor at the shelter where his friend stayed is an unexpected bonus.
Until she puts herself square in the sights of the man he’s trying to take down.
Life and Limb by Freya Barker is the second book in her PASS series. It follows Dimas and Willa. Willa, has grown up in a conservative household with very traditional gender roles and has never had a proper relationship, in the fear that she’ll lose her independence. Dimas, is former special forces and now works for his brothers protection company and again never had a proper relationship. The 2 hit it off but are both wary about getting too attached until Willa’s life is under threat. I enjoy all of Freya Barker’s books to date, enjoy her writing style, depth of characters and stories. I would recommend this book.
