Story Overview:
Casey Olson has always known he was destined to be a Navy SEAL, and the best day of his life was when he was accepted into training. The worst day was when a snapping bone ended his dream.

After three combat tours in five years, Logan Carter left the Marines and self-destructed. Now he’s sober and, thanks to a forgiving ex with friends in high places, has a promising job as a civilian contractor. All he has to do is stay on the rails and out of a bottle, even when his demons won’t leave him alone.

Logan likes his job, and he really likes the gorgeous man at the next desk. Casey tries not to check Logan out, but who is he kidding? From the start, despite their best efforts, neither man can resist the other. Sizzling chemistry leads to sex so hot they can both almost forget why they’re stuck in this office to begin with.

It would be perfect, except Logan can’t stop reliving wars he’ll never forget and Casey can’t stop grieving the SEAL he’ll never be. And they’ll never have a future together until they can make peace with their pasts.

My Review:
While I've liked some of these books better than others, I really liked this one. Both of these guys are really relatable. I really enjoyed reading both their stories and really enjoyed watching the two of them growing in their relationship with one another. 

Both of them have hard backstories. Logan is a recovering alcoholic. He used alcohol to get through his PTSD after three war-zone tours. So, now he's learning how to live life with PTSD and without alcohol. Casey made it through hell week for the SEALS when he broke his lower leg (badly) in a freak accident. So, his lifelong dream of being a SEAL is over. His leg will never recover enough for that. 

They also work together, but that can be both a pro or a con...and both sides are shown throughout the story. 

I really did enjoy this story. The guys were good together, and it was so easy to see where both of them were coming with their conflict. I loved the way the author illustrated Logan's PTSD with his sketching. The visuals there were so moving...and the progression of his nightmares felt very realistic.

I've enjoyed this entire series and definitely recommend this story. All the books in the series can be read as a stand-alone.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
