Hers to Heal by Vonnie Davis
A Black Eagle Ops Novel
In this powerful, sensual romance from the author of Her Survivor, a broken woman meets a shattered warrior—and discovers a passion strong enough to heal each other’s deepest wounds.
Navy SEAL Reece Browning sacrificed body and soul in the line of duty. He survived torture at the hands of America’s enemies, but lost his career and his voice in the process. Traumatized and desperate to get his PTSD under control, Reece escapes to Eagle Ridge Ranch. Under the big Texas sky, he finds peace, a renewed sense of purpose—and a woman who makes him feel like a man again. Her smile lights up his dark days, and her caress helps him forget the night terrors.
Ex-Marine Gina Wilson also bears painful scars: emotional wounds inflicted by men she once trusted with her life. She has fought hard to overcome her demons and build a good life for her daughter, and Reece is too intense, too damaged, too raw to let into her heart. Yet she’s drawn irresistibly to his steely gaze and heated embrace. No one else understands what it’s like to suffer in silence. And when Gina’s daughter is threatened, it’s Reece who risks everything to save the day.
I only recently discovered Vonnie Davis when I read the first book in the Black Eagle Ops series. After reading hers to heal I cannot wait for the remaining books in this series.
This book is a great blend of a military romance/small town/rural romance with suspense and action thrown in to keep in very interesting and entertaining.
Gina the heroine appeared in the previous title briefly and I loved her paired with Reece. He's an alpha and a SEAL, a wounded warrior with a heart of gold.
Hers to Heal, is well written, although I would have like the suspense to have been a little more drawn out, rather than a culmination of the story.
These characters are complex, they are survivors and their stories are moving. I loved the side characters that add such depth to this story line and at times an added element of humor. The banter between the characters is incredibly engaging and entertaining.
This romance is quite fast paced to the point that at times the relationship between the hero and heroine lacked reality, and was a tad too rushed. I really enjoyed seeing this pair bloom with each other's attention, affection and love.
Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next title in this series.
