Hard to put down. This is the second in the series, but it stands alone with recurrent characters. I smiled. I held my breath. I cried. I wanted to smack Tino upside his head. Despite her upbringing, Natalie's feet were firmly on the ground because she cared so much about other less fortunate people, and I loved that about her. She had finally realized what she wanted and went after it. Tino was still trying to figure out life outside of the military, and he almost loses the one thing that would help him. I highly recommend this story and the series, and I look forward to more from Alexis Morgan. I received a copy through Netgalley.
