They become closer and continue living together for a couple years.Then one night a bold move from Elsie takes their relationship to a whole different level. Henry is finally forced to finally act on his hidden desires. The story was filled with steamy love scenes & a undeniable passion that combusts between Henry and Elsie! Of course, right as they open up and start acting on their feelings for each other, Elsie finds out Henry has been keeping a secret. He is being deployment to Afghanistan, the same place her brother was killed. We get to experience how they deal with their painful separation. I enjoyed this book. This story was very realistic, and I was in turmoil right along with Elsie as she worried about Henry's safety while he was in Afghanistan. Even though this story is told through Elsie's perspective, we did get some of Henry's perspective too. I definitely got emotional at times and needed tissues.This story felt authentic. It dealt with the traumatic effects that soldiers endure after war, and how it effects their loved ones. If you are looking for a sexy, realistic, and fast paced romance, purchase Disarm: The Complete Novel by June Gray.

I thought this book really resonated. We have so many men and women who have lived with so much. And the fallout happens with them and those they love. I thought this book dealt very well with the subject of PTSD - and what it takes to fit back into life in general - I look forward to her next book! Narration was excellent and showing both POV's was excellent.
