This was such an emotional roller coaster of a listen as Matt Bryson struggles with his PTSD and its impact on his civilian life back in Manning Grove as a member of the police force alongside his 2 brothers Max and Marc. There was so much pain and suffering within this story, not only Matt’s but the woman who brings him to his knees, Dr. Carly Stephens that it was palpable. I felt that the narrators did a great job in expressing the emotion, pain and suffering that both Matt, Carly and by extension his family go through. Honestly this book brought out so many more emotions than the previous two books. My heart just about broke for both Matt and Carly, but particularly Matt at times as he struggled to face his demons. The love and support that Carly showed Matt was heartwarming and inspirational. The relationship that Matt has with his whole family is great , even though he does his best to keep them at a distance. The chemistry between Matt and Carly was off the charts hot as they fought through his issues to define their relationship. Can Carly prove to Matt that their love is worth taking a risk or is Matt destined to be alone?

This was a new author to me, and I jumped into the last book in the series, but that didn't take away anything from the enjoyment of the story, it truly is a standalone novel. I enjoyed Matt and Carly together. They connected immediately, the chemistry was hot, and Carly seemed to understand the needs, fears, and desires Matt had and suffered from because of the PSTD. Matt Bryson was lost inside his head with the memories from the war. His mind was playing tricks and the symptoms were getting worse. I liked him as a character, his humbleness, his desire to help and serve, his need to do the right thing, I could not help but admire him. Matt living through the episodes with the PSTD were realistic, intense, and scary. The emotions were high, and my heart was breaking for him and his pain. Dr. Carly Stephens was also admirable character. She works hard, trying to help her parents, and she only hopes for one thing: to be a mom one day. She had deep wounds in her soul, brokenness, not even time could heal. The Bryson family is abrasive and crazy when dealing with each other. At first, it was humorous, but it got old rather fast. The language in the story is rough and even though there is obvious bond and caring between the family members, the way they show it and communicate is scratchy. But that was obviously done on purpose, and maybe just the style the author was aiming for, as the writing was done with the same tone. Despite the focus on the physical relationship between Matt and Carly, the raw emotions between them, the understanding of each other's wounds and hurt, the bond between them was touching and poignant, winning my heart. I was offered the book to read as a contemporary romance story, but I would categorize this as erotica. The rather easy solutions to the devastating problems and pain the protagonist carry indicate that the physical aspects of the relationship were in the spotlight. Undeterred by the biting and raw writing style, this story had a potential to be much more, if not some too easy solutions and choices with the development of the relationship between Matt and Carly. A great story with deep emotions, an abundance of passion, and scorching heat. ~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
