I'm addicted to it. It's how I feel alive. It's the only thing that's real any more.
And now I have to sit around and discuss it like it's physics or calculus. I can't do it. I can't pretend that it's some sterile academic topic. Violence isn't sterile. It isn't calm. It's pulsing. It's alive.
It's my drug.
Until I met Abby, I never wanted anything beyond the next fight. Never considered that I might finally find a way back to the land of the living.
Now? Now I find myself dreaming of a woman with golden eyes.
But I can never be with her. Because I am not whole. And I never will be again.
But I cannot stay away.
And loving her might finally be what breaks me.  

Gritty, dark, and full of heart. Jessica Scott had done it again!

There was something addicting to the tortured soul that was Josh. The fact that he could explode any minute was what drew me to him. At the same time, I also liked that no matter how much violence he was capable of, he wasn't a threat to the people in the college he was attending. 

This story was different from all the other in that Abby was also tortured inside. She was strong on the outside, but she hid painful memories as well. They might not have been the war, but her struggle was just as traumatizing. Watching her bond with Josh was fascinating. It was like a magnetic pull that neither of them could escape. 

If you were in the market for a new adult military story, I would recommend this book. The feelings were real, and so were the hardships.
