Publisher's Summary

A standalone novel in the Sons of War contemporary military romance series.
Tormented by the loss of his men, Marine Corps Captain Sawyer Mathis returns home to attend a retreat for children who had lost a parent in war. He's forced to spend time with Katya Khavalov, the sister of one of the Marines killed during a firefight under his command. Unafraid of war or death, Sawyer is determined not to let a beautiful woman with a quick temper and broken heart deter him from trying to help her family heal.
Fiery yet sweet Katya resents the cool, unflappable commander. He brought one brother back in a box and the other dismembered. She blames him for destroying her family and believes him to be incapable of feeling anything - until she witnesses firsthand the toll the war and deaths are taking on Sawyer. He's suffering, too, and too stubborn to admit it.
The longer the two spend together, the more they begin to understand each other. What neither is counting on: the feelings they ignite within each other.

Military romance at it's best!

I love military romance, and I found this story to have so many good elements, it was hard to stop listening. Sawyer Mathis comes back the US to bury one of his men, and meets the family. Little does he know how his life will change. Katya Khavalov is burying her brother, and help nursing her other brother back to health from this attack. Blaming Sawyer for all the misfortune is the easy way out. But circumstances bring the two together and as opposite as they are, get to see each other first hand dealing with things. Their banter back and forth is priceless, ramping up the attraction and heat while trying to deal with the pain. The emotions this book evokes are incredible. From helplessness and guilt to love and compassion, the feelings between Sawyer and Katya are many. The question comes to whether the two will be able to overcome their pasts and meld together. The infusion of the kids from camp is integral to the story, giving sides of both characters that would not have been seen otherwise. It also let us get to know Peter, Katya's brother a little while a stand alone novel makes you want to know more about him, picking up the next book in the series.

Narration by Katie Mills is enjoyable. She does the characterizations well,though at times it was hard to distinguish between her male voices. She has a good pace and her voice is smooth and pleasant.
