Rafferty 'Rafe' Walsh achieved his childhood dream and joined the military. Once he achieved that, he went further and became a top-notch sniper in Team FIVE, the most respected commando unit in the Australian army.
Rafe did not like to fail, not on the battlefield, not with a weapon in his hands and not in his personal
Well, two out of three ain't bad. With a failed marriage under his belt, Rafe did not think things could get worse. He was wrong. Tragedy struck just as Rafe thought he was out and free. He lived with the
guilt, keeping it a secret, not only from his team, but from a woman he wished he met first. Saving Peyton was both a blessing and a curse. Blessed with her friendship, but he was doomed to stay there because of his past. How could he expect Peyton to understand when he could not forgive himself?
Peyton Duncan knew about loss. She experienced it in the worst way. First her boyfriend, then her parents and months later, the most important person in her life. Peyton did what she did not think she could, she picked herself up and made something of her life. And it was working out just fine until the universe decided to kick her butt one more time.
Meeting Rafe under dramatic circumstances was the best thing that ever happened to Peyton. He was her best friend, but she wanted more. Putting herself back out there meant trusting a man with her heart again. She thought she picked the right one this time, but Rafe has a secret that could derail their budding new romance.
Can love survive secrets? And what if the danger comes knocking for Peyton again? Is it all over, or will the universe give this perfect couple a break and let them live happily ever after?
So excited for the next Wounded Souls installment!
So excited for the next Wounded Souls installment! After the hysterics that happened in the last book, I was so excited to see what would happen to Justin and how the MC would handle the fallout from one of their own. Leah did not disappoint! Rafe has been attracted to Peyton since saving her from the fire, but he has baggage from his previous relationship that still has a hold on him years later. Thankfully, Peyton helps him start to grow and heal from that but not without misunderstandings. Peyton has built herself up since experiencing devastating loss at a young age, but the fire has really caused her to struggle to cope and move on. Determined to take her life back, she takes proper precautions in securing her home as well as asking Rafe to teach her basic self-defense in order to protect herself even further. Thankfully her decisions will come back to haunt her when Justin resurfaces, and the turn of events had me on the edge of my seat reading how everything unfolds. This is definitely a don’t miss book from Leah but also in this series, and I am so excited to see what happens in the next book as they handle the aftermath.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
