But as their team spends nine straight months in a safe house on the coast, Evan sees much more in Adam. For Adam, the sea holds bitter, shocking memories that haunt his days and ni ...more

I'm embarrassed at how long I've had this book in my TBR pile. I'm not sure why it kept getting passed over, except that I had the impression that it was possibly a sombre read and I needed to be in the right mood to read it. That impression turned out to be accurate as this novella deals with the issue of PTSD and how life can be changed forever by something out of your control.

The story is told in the first person by Riley who works in counter-terrorism. He and his small group of 3 other co-wo
I would have liked this if it weren't so short. I enjoyed the previous Clare London I read - Sparks Fly - and this was nothing close. It was so short to the point I wondered why bother to write it. Sorry, not to be mean but that was exactly how I felt when I reached the last page. It was, like "What --? You gotta be kidding! That's it?"

The entire story revolves around these guys who're at some beach hanging out after their mission. Adam spends the entire story hiding away from the rest as he str

This short was interesting while it lasted. Clare London is a great writer and this had definite potential... I like the way she wove in the memories with the present day things and Evan Riley is a very neat character. The other of the pair - Adam Nolan - just kind of got on my nerves. He was partially described as being a strong character, but given the first chance that focused directly on him, he turned into kind of a weakling. I understand anxiety attacks, I understand PTSD. Her attempts at ...more

A slightly dreamy post-action story told partially in flash backs. I'm going to be drawn back to this one to read again when I'm not expecting explosions at least once a chapter, and that four star rating may well go up to five.

I found this story structured really interestly enjoyed that about it quite a bit. I did think it was very light in characterization and the plot was pretty thin still it was a good, quick read.

For some reason, this short m/m romance about two guys who are part of a counter-terrorism team never fully engaged me – maybe it was the somewhat reserved first person narrative?
It wasn't bad, but it was a bit confusing with all the flashbacks.

Beautifully written. London paints a picture with words. I was completely drawn into the story and into the emotions of the main characters. Even though this is a short story, it feels fully formed. The connection between Evan and Adam was moving and beautiful. Highly recommended.

I really liked the moody-broody-ness of the this story. I felt like I was totally wrapped up inside the characters and the narration. Very nice.
