I started off really enjoying this. There's the h, Presley, who is a confident, hardworking woman. She also speaks her mind and doesn't play games. Then you have the H, Ben, who is genuinely a nice guy. He might be a little emotionally unavailable, but he tries to connect. I'm also a sucker for an adult romance story told from the third person pov, so that might have swayed me a little.

The story progresses, their relationship develops, and then I find myself trying to find myself something else

I’m a sucker for a love story and this is one in bucket loads.

Ben is an ex Navy SEAL, broken from War and losing his best friend and Presley is a nurse on a Children’s Cancer Unit but has also had a tough start to adulthood. They are brought together when Ben starts work as the head of Security at her hospital.

It’s a slow burner, their romance is a bit like cat and mouse with Ben doing the chasing and Presley backing off whilst she deals with her trust issues and insecurities. But when they do m

Good story, but too long and slow moving

I thought the story was good overall - sweet, troubled individuals finding each other. There are a few complaints though. As I was reading, the story seemed to all of a sudden jump into the two main characters dating. There was no real chase that it usually expected with romance novels, and then the story stood still for a REALLY long time. No advancements to the plot, and then there were all of these characters thrown in. I really with the first book woul

Beautiful

Two hurting people come together to help each other. Presley is a great nurse but has been taking care if herself four awhile. Ben is dealing with losing a friend. But they find each other which is wonderful.

3.5 stars.

Started good but dragged due to including so many characters from other books by this author. Lots of info dumps introducing them and explain who they are, but it was confusing trying to keep them all straight. Took away from the main story of this book.

**3.5 Stars**

Nineteen months ago, Ben, a Navy SEAL, was overseeing a mission with his best friend, Trent, and the rest of his team. Details were methodically planned, always leaving room for  possible variables, but Ben could've never planned for what happened. Now he's the Director of Security at Albany Medical Center and his best friend is gone.

Wow

I am a serial reader. Books I read come and go. They make you happy, sad, laugh and groan. Not this book. This one grabbed my heart and ripped it out of my chest. Presley's childhood broke my heart. It made me think about there are so many children like her. So now I am crying. Natalie Ann told Presley's story a bit at a time to keep the emotions going. Ben's story wouldn't have been so bad....then the author told us Trent's story. Yikes. Patty is a nutcase. No spoilers but this is the 'bad g

Very good story in the Harper family's series, this one is about the veteran, Ben. He has come home from his SEAL career, somewhat broken by the death of his closest friend. As Director of Security at Albany Medical Center, he has changed and updated the daily security routine. After work one evening, not wanting to go home, he stops at a pub. He is mesmerized by a tall, auburn-haired beauty playing pool like a shark.
He finds out that she is a nurse in his hospital and gets to know her. They ar

Light Easy Read

This is the first book I have read by Natalie Ann. It was a good book. It's a typical contemporary novel with no surprises or twist. I enjoyed the fact that she addressed issues about soldiers - the trauma they face phycologically which effects people in all sorts of ways ei: Trent and Ben felt they were very similar yet had very opposite reactions. The helplessness family feels when these soldiers come home and so on.
I would be interested to see how the series develops within th

Fantastic!!

First book of this author it was a different style of writing and I loved it. Well developed characters!! I simply loved both Presley and Ben !! They were both strong and carried baggage . Author had done good job of developing the relationship before sex was involved. The story could be related to a normal day to day life. It was really fine tuned by the author.
Hoping to read Phil and Sophie story next !!

I just read the prequel and decided to try one of these books. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the prequel this book is not the type of book that I really find an enjoyable read. I tend toward relatively clean and just found myself doing a lot of skimming. This was a good story, repetitious in spots, but the author is at a much higher level now. I have read a couple of her more recent works.

Wonderful read!

Natalie Ann truly captured the essence of each character. The back stories and development of the entire story line was perfectly done. No spoiler here, but I wanted to wring Patty’s neck for being so self-absorbed. In this book, Natalie Ann shows us that the mental struggles our returning vets have are real and powerful. Great book!

Two very strong, independent people attracted to each other. He has to convince her to take a chance on him.
They both have pasts that they are hiding from themselves, not dealing with their own emotions.
Together, they learn to share their past, and start the true healing process.
Great story!

Ben was awesome! I loved his broody, disconnected self.
Presley was operating in the dark sometimes but, I think everything worked out perfectly. I love broody heroes!

All Or Nothing

Love the story! The author held your interest until the end to find out what happened to Ben's partner in the Navy. And also how he dealt with Trent's mother. A good story from beginning to end.

Wonderful journey

Such a great story of two people with so much baggage and then trying so hard not to let their emotions show. One party having such a loving and close family and the other without. Such a journey to find happiness.

Great romance

What a good read this was. I loved how Presley and Ben met. The author did a good job of character and plot building. There is a good balance of romance and intrigue to keep it interesting.

It was okay.

It was okay. I liked the premise of the story but at times it was difficult to follow and I became bored. I liked the characters but needed more from them. The story also felt very choppy and it became difficult to fully dive into the story.

Enjoyable

Enjoyed the storyline. Baby Seal dealing with some PTSD but mostly dealing with guilt of his best friend dying. Meeting a strong willed women with her own baggage, these two lean on each other and help each other to move on!

They both have secrets from their pasts that are weighing heavily on them and affecting their lives. This was not a clean book, if that is what you are looking for.

Well, what can I say...I felt a connection with the characters. I laughed, I cried, a told them what was on my mind (even if they didn't want it 😉).
Over all, great book!
