WARRIOR by Nicole Blanchard

June 06, 2019

I thought it was just one night with my brother’s best friend.

The boy I had dreamt about since he gave me my first kiss, under the lights of the Ferris wheel.

I knew he was about to leave for a year – no chance for a future.

But our one night together would create memories for a lifetime.

Our paths crossed again, but I had lied, and he was no longer the man he once was. He was warring against demons. Against the silence that was threatening to swallow him. And I had kept a secret from him, one he would never forgive me for.

But my secret was about to be ripped open. Displayed for the world on national news. And I had only one way to repair the damage.

I had to trust the man I lied to.

The man I never got the chance to make a life with.

The only man who could save what we had created together.

My 'Meh' Thoughts

★★ 1/2

I almost DNF'd this story so many times. Within the first few chapters, I quickly realized that this may not be the story for me. But I pushed on. I've liked everything else I've read from this author and I was charmed by the first book of this series, Anchor. That book was so easy to fall into and the characters and plot were so engaging that I figured that formula would carry right through. It didn't. I'm so disappointed because this story had so many elements that should have made it work. A military hero, Ben, who suffered a career-ending injury and is making a new life in his hometown, a town where the girl he left behind still lives. He finds her again, but she's got a baby in tow. Guess she couldn't wait for him to come back from defending their country, huh? Oh but wait... the kid's his. But then the girl screws everything up by NOT telling him about his son in the first place. Understandable when he was overseas, not so much when he practically lives next door. Too much time passes and the only reason he knows he has a child is through someone else. Who does that? And it was downhill from there. Someone's out to kill her, Ben's determined to save her, and she keeps putting him off like she didn't do anything wrong.

I'm hoping this was the one book I should have passed on. As I said, I've liked everything else I've read from this author and this story won't stop me from reading more from her. If you're looking for angst and suspense, this book has it in spades.
