Filled with a desire to continue to protect those who he sees as a victim, he's always quick to step in and assist anyone in need. Through a newfound friend, he meets a woman who was the victim of as random act of violence. Initially, he hopes for nothing in return but the satisfaction of helping her.
Katie "Bug" Ripton is attempting to quietly recover from being the victim of an assault. When she meets Alec, she sees a man who is kind, considerate, and not only capable of comforting her, but willing to protect her from harm.
Apart, their lives are empty and seem to be haunted by the memories of their pasts.
Together, their pasts disappear, and a future begins to unfold.
A future every girl dreams of obtaining, but few ever do.
The first part of the book covers Alec's time in the marines. It is interesting to read the characters thoughts on his experiences in Iraq. After his wife's infidelity, and leaving active duty, he moves to Texas to start a new chapter for the MC. This is where he encounters Katie. I liked his approach to his and Katie's relationship. He is extremely respectful of her and doesn't rush the relationship. I won't go into further details on the story and spoil it but this book is a definite must read! The story is amazing and it is further enhanced by the masterful writing style of Scott Hildreth.
