She has always wanted Wyatt to be her first since she was fifteen years old. Seven years later she is about to see Wyatt again and her imagination goes into overdrive.

Wyatt has returned from the Navy after being medically discharged for PTSD. He feels broken emotionally and feels that he is a monster. Jake invites him to spend a long weekend with his family at the lake. Wyatt can't wait to see Ruby. Little did they know that their lives will be changed forever. Ruby's character in the beginning was a bit immature. However later in the story she seems to come out of her fog and handles Wyatt's PTSD episode quite maturely. Wyatt's fear is that he will harm someone who is around him during his PTSD episodes. Will they find happiness together? An interesting read.

    Disappointed I am a total sucker for Seal Romance but I was very disappointed in this one. The story line was descent until the end. But the writing was terrible. The majority of the chapters was Ruby’s wet dreams. I hated how naive she was to what her boss was doing. The ending was very disappointing. Mostly because I personally love a man who works hard to provide for his family and even a woman who works hard to provide.

But like I said I’m a sucker for Seals so I read the entire thing!

    Ruby's older brother, Jake, invites his best friend, Wyatt, to the lake where they all had so many found memories of growing up.  Seven years ago Wyatt kissed Ruby and neither has forgotten it.  He became a Navy SEAL and has been through traumatic events as you can only imagine and has PTSD.  But he's back now and Ruby is even more beautiful, both inside and out, than ever.  The chemistry between them is so strong that you could almost 'feel' it emitting from the pages in the book.  This is a wo Ruby's older brother, Jake, invites his best friend, Wyatt, to the lake where they all had so many found memories of growing up.  Seven years ago Wyatt kissed Ruby and neither has forgotten it.  He became a Navy SEAL and has been through traumatic events as you can only imagine and has PTSD.  But he's back now and Ruby is even more beautiful, both inside and out, than ever.  The chemistry between them is so strong that you could almost 'feel' it emitting from the pages in the book.  This is a wonderful read composed by those brilliant authors, Gage Grayson and Vivien Vale who write so beautifully in their own right, but together - they are magnificent! I loved reading about Wyatt and Ruby getting to know one another again in this second chance romance - sitting in front of the fire, and with the air simmering with the heat radiating off them.  This is a story that is romance with a capital R.  Such wonderful 'people' and their love and passion is not going to be denied for long.  There is some angst and full of emotions all woven into a lovely storyline that I could not put down [yes I lost some sleep but it was well worth it] and will certainly remember, and want to read again.  I look forward to reading more of their stories! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Definitely recommended

Getting roped into going to his best friends families cabin for the weekend should be a source of relief for him, he spent a lot of time there as a kid. Problem is his best friend Jakes sister Ruby will be there- the one he has never forgotten, the one he cannot have. There are many ways this weekend can end.. A fast-paced, heartfelt read, I am a big fan best friends sibling love storylines! While this one hits on many little things throughout and I relished in the sweet and sultry of this emotional tale. I had a few spots that I thought ah wait-- what happened to ____? How did __ not hear? Or: Um how did her _______ not realize any of this was going on?{left out not to give anything away } My biggest is, that this woman had NO clue her situation was dangerous and had the nerve to ya know... *** Breathe, in with the good air out with the bad, in with the good air out with the--*** Regardless, I did enjoy this Brothers Best Friend Romance!

As they get to know one another again, their feelings never died but hey have some hurdles to overcome before they get their HEA. The reason why I liked the read right up until the end with her boss is because I liked her, maybe a bit naive but she went after Wyatt and didn’t beat around the bush with him. But the ending made her look like a du**, stu***, naive little girl and not like a woman who knows law considering she’s a paralegal. The whole incident at the cabin with her boss...really, really, what the....and the ending was quick to get to their HEA and I would have liked to know how her parents and brother took the news. I did like Wyatt and his struggles with PTSD, his thoughts and his episodes were emotional at times and I did enjoy that he didn’t beat around the bush either with Ruby. It’s a quick read with a slow build between them until it explodes....3.5 stars.

Finding out he is joining them on the family vacation makes hope bloom that she has another chance to show him how she feels. Will they get that chance or will Wyatt's shame at his PTSD push her further away? I loved that these authors were able to bring to life a subject that so many are dealing with and show that there is life beyond the war and it can be reached. Loved this.

    This is one of those stories that leaves you thinking what if? What if I had just told him that I think he is cute. What if I just kissed him or what I thought of him.

    I usually don't give a review unless I finish the book but I just couldn't take it anymore. I made it through chapter 24 and did not finish. The thoughts of the characters were juvenile. No one has that inner dialogue. There were also a lot of mistakes. For example, they leave for a hike after getting up in the morning and arrive at the end of their hike at sunset then it takes them minutes to get back to the cabin.

One minute she's in the shower wondering if he's up and the next minute she says good morning to him on the way to that same shower. I can suspend disbelief a little bit, but this was too much.

    Overall, this was a pretty good book. I did not, however, prefer the way the authors made the main character out to be an incredibly naive woman. They played her to be fairly stupid as far as determining her boss’s actions. The fact that she had no clue what entailed sexual harassment in this day and age turned me off to her character. Spoiler alert: no woman in this day and age would think nothing of her boss tracking her phone or stalk her to her family’s vacation home while she was on vacatio Overall, this was a pretty good book.

I sincerely hope there are not women out there who consider this just an overzealous man. Please do not insult a woman’s intelligence in that way, especially in light of the problem sexual harassment has been.

    Possible spoilers**** Maybe it's because I read an ARC but the writing seems very high school and an overly large part of the beginning is all about him thinking about how wonderful he looks. The heroine, and I use that term loosely, is naive to point of stupidity. How do you graduate college and have no idea that what your boss is doing is harassment and that him texting 10 or more times in one day asking for bikini photos then showing up at your parents vacation home doesn't mean anything good?

    I have to say that this page turner was more than I expected. All the drama, tension, nerve racking, nailbiting, rollercoaster ride of emotions and unexpected trauma that will take you on ride that will rock you to your core. Even with such an on point storyline that shows how sad some of our guys have it when they come back from a war zone. This duo totally nail this one with such an accurate account of PTSD problems that alot of our military suffer with.

The characters and scenes were so realistic with such graphic detailed descriptions that really brings this read to life before your eyes. Twists and turns abound with some shocking revelations that pulls this plot out and captures your attention from the start. With emotions running high and all the excitement, heart pounding, pulse racing, adrenaline pumping heights are truly staggering. I tip my hat to you guys, they really did a phenomenal job bringing this read together beautifully. Remarkable job guys and thanks for sharing this little guy with us.

    I loved the underlying story of this book but it took me awhile to warm to the characters. Wyatt and Ruby have a little bit of a past, fast forward to present day. Wyatt comes off as too cocky at first and Ruby comes across as a love lost teenager but then confident other times. I feel they really don’t find their rhythm until almost half way through the book. But after that is when things really picked up. Wyatt and Ruby together are actually pretty hot!

The unexpected conclusion makes up for everything though. I would recommend as it was an entertaining and steamy read. I received an advanced copy from Booksprout for an honest and voluntary review.

    You'll love the story of Wyatt and Ruby. It will grab you by your heartstrings and take you on an emotional roller coaster. Ruby was his best friends little sister so she was off limits. She became his rock and helped him cope with his PTSD. Their chemistry was off the charts. No spoiler here, but are they able to get together and make their relationship work or does she continue to be off limits like she was when she was young.
