We are lucky that Ms.Mayer gives some of her books away. Enjoy the tease of falling for new characters that visit other books, humor & heart. Then buy the rest and just keep falling. This was my first purchase of hers, but certainly not my last. I look forward to exploring more of this refuge.

Brock by Dale Mayer Hathaway House Series Book Two Brock Gorman is frustrated. He's not healing. He's a man used to using his big mitts for working...not laying around on a bed. He has all kinds of preconceived ideas about his new therapist at the first meeting. He quickly finds out he was completely wrong by the second one. Sidney Morning has just returned to Hathaway House after nine months of schooling. Her boyfriend decided to dump her at the start of school, so it's good to be home again. Around the people who are like family. Only, her first day doesn't go so well. This series takes place at Hathaway House in Texas. A place started by a father and daughter to help injured military men. And a veterinary clinic downstairs. The men and animals help each other with healing. Since Dani, the owner, found love with a patient...the doors have opened up for more romance.

I found this story uplifting, the character goes from being despondent and depressed to being quite empowered once he starts noticing progress with his health and motivated to not just keep going but improve. Learn new skills and a new start, the love side of things obviously helps but a lot of it is having the right therapists or medical staff for the patient and understanding the best way to get maximum results. These stories have a certain amount of grit, the issues being dealt with and the people themselves are vulnerable, so finding a balance between being to focussed on romance to health isn't easy, and keeping it feeling real as well all plays a part. I love the realistic plot that is in this, the tough ex seal injured in life changing way just trying to figure out a way forward different from that he expected and wanted. The devastation they feel at the loss of a career they loved and of feeling abandoned by that very thing because they can't continue with it. I can imagine that along with the pain is something that any injured military would feel and battle with. I am loving the idea of a recuperation place with all the therapy and care needed with the bonus of animals also dealing in many cases with similar injuries, a beautiful scenery that has the added calming benefits, I think there should be some of these in the real world. I am loving the whole concept and the characters, they arnt larger than life or perfect, they have flaws and make mistakes, so I can identify with them. Fabulous new series and one I will be continuing having already pre ordered as many as available.

Book 2 In Dale Mayers new series, Hathaway House. These are G rated, anyone can read. Feel the emotion of the wounded warriors, the emotion of the staff. The fine line they walk trying to make sure the wounded have everything they need, but entice them to do for themselves. The emotional and mental as well as the physical. I don't know if I am still in love with Aaron that I didn't do Brock justice, or if Brocks personality and mine just didn't click. But hey he has straight shooting, tell it like it is, Sidney in his corner. She laid it out there, but didn't lose compassion. In this one we meet few more therapists and learn that people are the same everywhere, i.e. hurt feelings and office politics Just as I was ready for Marsha to disappear, Sidney grabbed the bull by the horns and dealt with it. Her willingness to explore all avenues and step back and check her self make her top notch. When we found out Brocks area of expertise my first thought was hey, put him to work there. Another book that makes you feel and care. Thank you for the arc Dale Mayer, Booksprout. All thoughts and opinions are my own and were unsolicited.

This is the second book in this series and I am loving them. Hatherway house is a treatment centre for badly injured military men with life changing injuries, it is run by Dani, who fell in love with Aaron in the first book, and her father who was also injured in the service of his country. Brock arrives at the centre full of anger, the deep seated reason being the fact that he was injured and lost his leg in a car accident in america rather than in battle in Afghanistan. He was at Hatherway House for 4 months with little or no progress..... that is until he encountered the sweet but formidable Sidney who had just returned from 9 months advanced training. Sidney socked it to him straight between the eyes, he either worked with her and got better or he went back to the hospital, she left no room for argument. This story is about the mental as well as the physical healing, sometimes the scars go deep, Sidney, along with the rest of his team and the sanctuary's animals gradually gained Brock's trust and a gentle romance started. There were pitfalls along the way but nothing was insurmountable. If you are looking for an action packed, guns blazing story then this is not the book for you but if you are looking for a gentle romance with lots of Psychological healing you will love this book. As always, Dale Mayer has researched the mental as well as physical trauma that these people encounter and it shows. I mentioned that this book was second in a series but it can be easily read as a standalone although I am sure you will get more enjoyment from starting at the beginning.

Brock received his wounds not on his tours of duty but at stateside. Hathaway House is the place he is sent but he is not healing. Sydney is a physiotherapist returning from specialized training to Hathaway House. They meet and Brock finds out what he really can do as Sydney takes not prisoners. The wounded animals also help in Brock's journey to find himself. A wonderful book, the second of a new series. This is a book for all ages. Bravo!
