In this modern day story we are introduced to Wade, a Iraq war veteran, battle scared and suffering with issues from the war and just everyday living that had pushed him nearly to the brink of breaking. Then he meets the vivacious, loving Dr. Jesse Okenah. Together these men footage a relationship first as friends. Then it grew into something more.
This was a great short, showing in a very real way how many men and women returning from war face both physical and mental injuries and the frustration of it all. But it also portrays how a little compassion can make a world of difference in not only their lives, but the lives of the one extending the hand of friendship and love.
Hunter did a very good job in this book, putting a lot of heart and love into his characters and in writing a good story. I would have like this story to be longer, but that’s just me. Nice Job.
Former U.S. Army Sergeant Wade Carter returned from Afghanistan a broken man. Permanently injured and weighed down with PTSD, his scars run deeper than flesh and bone. When his regular physical therapist is taken ill, the sexy replacement doctor has Wade wishing he’d touch much more of his body than his busted leg.
Dr. Jesse Okenah isn’t a beginner when it comes to working with veterans, but his new patient stirs up feelings that go beyond professional. It’s Wade’s wounded soul, more than his mangled leg, that needs TLC in order for him to live a healthy, fulfilling life again. Jesse just needs to figure out how to deliver that care to the stubborn vet without crossing a line — and losing his heart.
