Ryan Kendall is broken. He understands pain. He knows the hand of violence and the ache of loss. He knows what it means to fail those who need you. Being broken doesn’t stop him wanting the one thing he can’t have; Finlay Tanner. Her smile is sweet and her future bright. She’s the girl he grew up with, the girl he loves, the girl he protects from the world, and from himself.

At nineteen, Ryan leaves to join the Australian Army. After years of training he becomes an elite SAS soldier and deploys to the Afghanistan war. Returning home after six years, one look is all it takes to know he can’t live without her. But sometimes love isn’t enough to heal what hurts. Sometimes people like him can’t be fixed, and sometimes people like Finlay deserve more than what’s left.

5 emotional stars!

Oh this book, I was prepared for a lot of tears and sobbing and no matter how much you prepare yourself. I don’t have the words to describe their love, their suffering, their losses, them. Ryan and Fin met when Fin’s family relocates. Ryan and Jake, Fin’s brother, become fast friends and the rest could be history but it’s not.

Ryan comes from a a broken family and he finds a new one with the Tanner’s, Fin and Jake’s family. Those three are inseparable but Ryan and Fin soon find themselves falling for one another.

And then, there comes the war.

Ryan wants to fighting for those that are unable to. Fin wants to save the whales. And their lives just can’t find a balance. As the story develops, we see Ryan and Jake as they train and fight and Fin as she travels to Antarctica and researches.

Their lives collide for only a few weeks at a time and then war separates them again. Without giving too much away, I will say that this story is filled with love, and loss and bright stars that sometimes burn brighter than the rest. A must read.
