Tyler Rexall never considered being anything besides a Navy SEAL. But a mission-gone-wrong has ended his career in the Teams, leaving Tyler handicapped, his self-identity obliterated. Returning to his hometown of Louisa, Virginia, Tyler wallows in despair. He has no idea that the young woman showing up on his doorstep with a dog holds his future in the palms of her hands.
Katie Crowley’s lifelong crush on the formidable “T-Rex” hasn’t waned one iota in the last decade. Seeing him beaten down and handicapped arouses her determination to help him, even as she’s being terrorized by a desperate man who is getting bolder by the day.
Can Katie convince a proud man like Tyler to accept that a service dog can change his life? Unfortunately, she may not get the chance or the time to heal him as her heart demands, not when her stalker returns for a final encounter
The author draws clear images of the adventure in my mind.
I could see the small town, Louisa on my mind, as well as the kennel Katie is running, the homestead Tyler was staying in. But not only that, I could see the images of the past terrors in Katie's life, and the war memories of Tyler's.
The pain and adjustment Tyler were going through was touching,
As well as was the romance between Tyler and Katie. It also held a note of innocence, that was refreshing.
While I wish there would have been a full length novel for Tyler and Katie with more insights into their lives and things developing in the story, this novella was a great introduction to the series, and I enjoyed reading it. All the characters were highly likeable, and I'm looking forward to reading more about the Navy SEALs in the series. Four spoons!
