Book Review: Collateral Damage - By Lynette Eason Danger Never Sleeps #1

Collateral Damage

Honorably discharged from the Army after an explosion nearly killed her, former military psychiatrist Brooke Adams has set up shop to help others--but her days of helping military personnel are over. She's got her own battles to fight from her time overseas, and she's not equipped to take on more. Former Army Special Ops Sergeant First Class Asher James could handle anything that war sent his way--terrorists, bombs, bullets. The only thing that scares him now is sleep. As the shadows close in, the nightmares begin.

Finally convinced that he needs help, Asher makes an appointment with a counselor, and Brooke is pressed by her boss to take him on. When he arrives at her office she isn't there--but a dead body is. Brooke is devastated when she walks in, and Asher is a conveniently strong shoulder to cry on. But she can't take him on as a client after sharing such an intimate and unprofessional moment, can she? And he's not sure he can handle sharing his deepest fears with such a beautiful woman.

When it becomes clear that Brooke was the real target of the attack--and that her secrets go even deeper than his own--Asher vows to protect her no matter what.

There are several things that you count on with Lynette Eason. 
1. You will not want to put a book she has written down. 
2. You will have your heart pumping with adreneline
3. You will anxiously await the next book in the series

THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!! She always writes relatable, likeable characters that their pasts will pull at your heartstrings. I like how Brooke and Asher communicated in the book. With them communicating it was fun to be along as the relationship grew. I was wrong in guessing who the suspect was. The author throws in a bunch of twists and turns. 
Make sure that you carve a big chunk of time to read this book --- you will not want to put it down. 

I received a copy of this book through the Publisher blogging program. All thoughts are my own.
