Mission: Accept is the second story in the Rise Again Warrior series.
Dana Donahue might be Shane Logan's cousin, but she's nothing like him—she's quite the opposite of him. Her thoughts focus on what money and people can do for her. She never approved of Shane joining the military and knows little about the world he has lived in for most of his life. All that will change when she has to ask him for a job after her father cuts her off.
Derek Stall lives on the streets by choice—not circumstance. Memories of what he did under order sometimes haunt him, other times give him the strength to move through one more day until he can finish the mission he started.
A chance meeting between Dana and Derek will lead to an unlikely friendship that might just save his life, but the drastic differences between them could be the dividing wedge that keeps them apart.
When Derek feels he has to leave Rise Again Warrior to complete his mission, he begins to realize that he could be leaving behind more than just a few friends. Could he be leaving behind the possibility of a healthy future before he finally accepts his past?
The Rise Again Warrior Series is an intense and emotional journey through the lives of many service members, their families, and their friends. Focusing on the trials that they face after wartime is over, and they have returned home to a nation that sometimes seems to have forgotten what they were fighting for, and what all of these people sacrificed in the name of Honor & Duty.

Stacy Eaton delivers another awesome novel in her “Rise Again Warrior” series, a series I am loving, not only are the stories and characters amazing but the books contain so much heart and brings out my patriotic pride and respect for those who served and sacrificed so much for our beloved country. I recommend starting with the first book in the series “Mission: Believe” it sets the foundation for the concept of “Rise Again Warrior” a non-profit organization and program to help returning soldiers acclimate back to civilian life. This book is Derek Stall and Dana Donahues story, Derek, a former Navy Seal, has not had the easiest of times, he deals with memories of a mission gone wrong and haunting guilt. He lives on the streets, surviving day by day. Dana Donahue is a spoiled, prima donna who lives off of her families’ wealth, she has no responsibilities, that is until her parents cut her off to teach her a lesson. She is on the phone with her father while sitting on a park bench trying to change his mind, Derek was asleep under the bench and heard the whole conversation. Two people living two very different lives meet and start talking, it was an eye opener for her but there was something about Derek that go to her, she just did not know it at the time. She goes to to see her cousin Shane Logan about a job and gets hired to work along side, Nate. This book is raw and real, the story is brilliantly plotted and I loved how it all plays out. I also loved how clueless Dana was at first and how much she grew as a person by the end. The same for Derek, with the help of others he learns to live again and see things in a different light, copes with his PTSD and survivor’s guilt. Stacy Eaton, thank you for another amazing novel, it is a story I can not praise or recommend enough.
And for the wonderful narration, Ryan Clark is the perfect narrator to bring Stacey Eaton’s characters and story to life. You could hear how much heart he puts into his work as he captures the character emotions and projects them into his performance. His portrayal of the characters is spot on as he truly grasps each of their personas and makes the role his own. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. I loved touching performance at the end too. Thank you for another awesome listen 🎧
