Publisher Description

Only love can heal an impossibly broken heart

There’d forever been a thread running through Trevor Estes’s life—his son, Riley, strong and constant like a heartbeat. But when Riley is killed in combat, everything in Trevor’s life unravels into a mess he doesn’t know how to mourn.

Then Jesse Byrne, Riley’s friend and platoon mate, arrives on Trevor’s doorstep with a box of Riley’s things. Jesse’s all-too-familiar grief provides an unlikely source of comfort for Trevor: knowing he’s not alone is exactly what he needs.

Trevor never imagined he’d find someone who fills his heart with hope again. As the pair celebrate Riley’s memory, their unique bond deepens into something irreplaceable—and something neither man can live without.

But diving into a relationship can’t be so simple. Being together means Trevor risking the last link he has to his son…leaving Jesse to wonder if he’ll ever be enough, or if Trevor will always be haunted by the past.

Very deep, emotional story.

I read Point of Contact a few weeks ago but just couldn't seem to find the words to write my review. It's the first book I've read by Melanie Hansen but I sure look forward to reading more of her work.

If you like a "meaty" story, this one's for you. The book spans a fairly long period of time and is broken down into before and after. The first section begins with us looking in on a party at Trevor's house – his son Riley and his friends are having one last fling before they deploy. Section two beings 8 months after Riley's death.

The blurb for the book is good so I recommend reading it. One of the things it doesn't tell you is that there's another relationship in the story (there's no cheating) and it added another level of complexity to an already complex story. I also don't think the blurb can convey how much feeling there is to this book – it broke my heart in more than one place. Even though I knew going it that Riley dies, reading how it all happened, and how it affected those who loved him, was tough at times and had me in tears more than once.

It's been a long time since I've read a book that is as complex as this one and I loved it. Melanie Hansen has crafted a story that grabbed my attention and held on to I from start to finish. It's a very emotional read but well with the ride.

A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.

intense and so worth it

This novel just blew me away, and I’m still thinking about parts of it weeks later and recommending it to friends. It’s a novel about war, about grief, and about many different forms of connection and love. What carried me away was the depth of emotion Hansen captured among all of her characters.
