TBR Thursday {13}

TBRThursday-700x350

Kimberly @ Kimberlyfaye Reads started a new weekly feature that I loved the sound of, and have decided to join in the fun! Make sure you go check out her awesome blog.

The purpose of the feature is to spotlight a title from your shelf or eReader to see what others think about it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? It’s a way to dust off those older books that have been sitting on our TBR and decide if they’re worth reading or just need removed from the list!

About the book:

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. His patrol undertakes the most dangerous missions a soldier can face. But no matter how far he runs, or how hard he fights, his need for Finlay won’t let go.

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.

This is a story about war and the cost of sacrifice. Where bonds are formed, and friendships found. Where those who are strong, fall hard. Where love is let go, heartache is born, and heroes are made. Where one man learns that the hardest fight of all, is the fight to save himself.

 

After reading Making Faces (which is the most beautiful book I’ve ever read), I was looking on Goodreads for other similar recommendations. This book was one of them, and I realized I own a copy on my Kindle.  I haven’t read anything by this author, and it sounds really good, not to mention all of the high rating from my fellow Goodreaders.

Have you read this book? What did you think?

    I’m SO freaking happy you loved Making Faces. I’ve wanted to read Fighting Redemption for a while because so many others loved it, but I always pushed it down the list. I’d even forgotten about it until now. I need a database. lol

    Oooof. I’ve not read this one, but it sounds seriously angsty. It also tempts the side of me that thrives on angst. If you do decide to read it, I’ll be anxious to hear your thoughts!
