1.5 very disappointing stars
Last night I was in the mood to read the hero saves abused heroine trope. I really wanted a military/fighter hero but after searching for an hour and a half of searching I settled for this because it was the closest freebie I could find. This "sweet sensitive" hero was kind of a creep. He would say oh hey i need to give her space let her come to me. Then he would crowd her knowing he'd made her uncomfortable but never apologize and also saying things like "you know i'd never hurt you." Well how the hell is she supposed to know that? You know she just left an abusive relationship you're crowding her space with full knowledge that you shouldn't be and that you're scaring her. Sounds a lot like she left a severely abusive relationship for a controlling one. The book was otherwise decent. Ok writing despite some broad liberties taken with the legal system. Decent plot though the big climactic ending was...less than climactic. The heroine did find her feet which is my favorite part of this trope but the hero skeezed me out so much that I'm a little surprised I finished this
