This is book 8 in the Black Dawn series and I would read the books before it so you don't get confused on the characters and who they are to each other. We finally get Wyatt and Emily's story in this one!! Wyatt and Emily have been through horrific things and are slowly working on their own issues all while trying to keep their distance from each other. Because they believe that is what the other person needs. This book takes us through how they fight to get better but also fight to be able to together. I absolutely loved this book! Emily went through literal hell, and still struggles with how those events make her feel every day. But she still manages to get up and truly work through them and fight for herself. Wyatt has his own issues to deal with, and he doesn't want to ask for help but he finally realizes that just because Emily has issues that will probably never fully go away, he can still lean on her. I loved how this story comes together and how they learn to ask for what they need from each other. It's a truly beautiful story of how you can overcome horrific things and still have a perfect (for you) life!

HER LOVING HERO (Black Dawn #8) By Caitlyn O'Leary Once again Caitlyn brings us a great well written story. We are finally getting the story of Wyatt. I enjoy catching up with the other team members that are not leads in the current stories. In this one, we get several of the other seals and their significant others. This book has action, danger, suspense and of course romance. Emily Hoag was kidnapped and brutalized in the middle east. Wyatt Leeds is part of the SEAL team that had went in to rescue her. They come across each other as they are volunteering at the children's center. She is working through her PTSD. He has his own demons he is dealing with. Wyatt had been trying to be a friend and not push her in any way as he was falling in love with her. Emily was falling in love with him at the same time. This is another 5 star read that we have come to expect from Caitlyn O'Leary.

this book was a good balance - the action was there, but more importantly the courtship of Emily by Wyatt Leed’s, one of the SEAL Team who was on Comms when his Team rescued Emily Hoag after she was captured in Saudi Arabia. The last five months he worked to gain Emily's trust after she moved stateside to rebuild her life after the traumatic events in Saudi. Emily is hesitant to push further than friendship, and on occasion, she pushes him away, but when she finds out her little sister and her friends are planning on being amateur detectives and going undercover at a dangerous party in the Middle East, she knows she needs his help - Wyatt and his friend go 'off books' to rescue them, and inadvertently discover information that will affect the balance between the Middle Eastern States, its a good job they're SEALS, and can think on their feet. The books got both action and a slow burn romance that fits the characters that will keep the reader turning the pages.

ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars Her Loving Hero book 8 in the Black Dawn series by Caitlyn O’Leary and another awesome, emotional book! Emily had a horrific thing happen to to her overseas and was rescued by Wyatt and his Navy Seals. Now back in the states, Wyatt is trying to help Emily come to grips with what happened her and find a way to moved forward with her life. While she is in the states the rest of her family is still overseas and now hearing about the unrest she is depending on Wyatt to help bring her family back home. In the mean time Wyatt has kept his own life close to his chest, until he gets words that his brother was in an accident... What comes next for these two will keep you wanting to turn the pages to find out what happens next .. sleep might be overrated!!!

There are many stories that touch on sensitive subjects and pull at our heart strings, but an author that consistently writes with such deep understanding, while ensuring that her primary character is never portrayed as broken or a damaged, is expectational. I’m once again in awe of Ms O’Leary’s aptitude for “telling it like it is” and getting to the heart of a traumatic event, while capturing the essence of turmoil and fear suffered by the abused, and the unwavering love and commitment of the man determined to never push her boundaries or ever let her down. When a woman says, “I’m a lost cause, a weak mess, scared and scarred and I have panic attacks; so you better be listening to me Buddy cause you’re setting yourself up for heartbreak”, you have to feel an unbridled respect for the courage and fortitude she doesn’t even realise she has. And nothing is as downright sexy as a man who would give his life to remove her suffering, uses humour and steadfast devotion, and highlights her persistence and strength to gradually ease her pain. Emily and Wyatt are two emotionally scarred individuals who have come together at a time less than perfect, but who need the inner strength and courage they both embody to heal the wounds that cruelty and malice have inflicted on their lives. SEAL’s are men of fortitude, logic and determination, but Wyatt is also a man with a gentle and tender heart and a saviour at his very core. His love of family and his devotion to Emily are just some of the characteristics that make him one of my favourite warriors. In some ways this tory seemed more sedate than others by Ms O’Leary, but what captured my heart was the depth of love, patience and determination both Emily and Wyatt showed during their goals to save their families, and each other. As always, I’m looking forward to what the author has in store for us in her next outing, so Kane better beware.

Wyatt and Emily have both been through so much in their lives. He keeps his secrets while knowing all of hers. Things get complicated pretty quickly but luckily Wyatt is there to help her out, then she gets to return the favor. These two are so special and loving after all they have been through. I really wanted to beat up both is step dad and her mother for their callous attitudes. I really hope that we get to see more of Wyatt, Emily and all their siblings in the future.

Love Wyatt and Emily This really was her loving hero. Wyatt was amazing with his compassion that all women dream about. He also made mistakes which just made him more lovable. Emily was incredibly strong and just needed the right guy to help her overcome her brutal past. The journey was a bit intense with shtuff happening all over. Emily's sisters needed help. Wyatt gets the surprise of his life. Old teams and new characters all meld seamlessly to make this flow smoothly with action, emotion and romance. A sweeter read I think, this time, from Ms. O'Leary, tho no less engaging. Able to stand alone with it's own HEA, but part of a kickin military series that will take you on a wildly spectacular ride within the Black Dawn team.

Wyatt wasn't present for Emily's rescue. His SEAL team removed her from terrorist rapists. Wyatt did hear the entire ordeal over the coms. Now they worked together with teens at the Y. They were friends even though she was still recovering. He knew it and was careful not to make her fear him. She wouldn't talk about it. He knew all about hiding secrets. He didn't share either. Could they possibly find a life with their pasts in their now and secret? When a serious situation with her family comes up Wyatt may be the only one who can help. Danger, secrets, tenderness, and understanding make these two a couple impossible not to love and cheer for their HEA.

Beautiful story of survival and love This story was just perfect. Emily was introduced a couple books back as a victim that the Black Dawn team rescued. Since then, Wyatt has taken an interest in making sure she's recovering well and healing properly. Right as their casual friendship heats up, her family's life back in Oman takes a dangerous turn and Wyatt's stateside family needs his immediate attention as well. There's non-stop action on all fronts, while the romance is exquisitely slow-building, sweet, patient, and tender. The way Wyatt responds to Emily's issues was beautifully written, and I loved the way she stepped up when his family needed her, too. These characters feel like genuine people, everyday people whose everyday jobs make them true heroes. I love how the author includes all the Black Dawn team members, reminding us that the team itself is another layer of family. If you like your heroes as smart as they are swoon-worthy, you want to read this series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
