Sam Mendez had the life other people dreamed about— in nightmares. Sam survived Afghanistan with a prosthetic leg and nightmares that wouldn't let him sleep. He came home to a broken home and a wife and kids that didn't want him anymore. The only friends he had left were Jack Daniels and Jim Beam.
Tamara was a girl without a past and, if Sam hadn't stumbled across her during a morning jog, no future. He helped her back to health and gave her a place to stay until she could remember who she was and why she'd washed up on the beach.
That's when the weird things started happening. Things like Sam making friends and Tamara falling in love with him. He knew it was only a matter of time until the scales of justice tipped and somebody came for them. And when they do, can he protect Tamara, or will she prove to be the guardian angel he suspects she is?
