I had no idea what to expect going into this book and I loved the uncertainty of not knowing how the story would end. This one was super dark and I found myself rooting for a monster at points during the book. Definitely check this one out!

Shame Scale: Zero

Book Description:


August Cotton shouldn’t be here. When a tragic accident calls him home to Magnolia Springs, this returned Veteran adds his parents to the list of things he’s lost in recent years, right along with his IED detection dog and his left leg. As the sole guardian of his four-year-old sister, August must rely on his Marine training in raising a tiny hellion who’s as stubborn as he is. But the Corps could never prepare him for this. Nor could they prepare him for Olivia Anders, a woman who’ll stop at nothing to get her way.

As owner of Paws for Cause, Olivia is no stranger to the broken men and women who return home from war. She’s no stranger to broken dogs either. In fact, she’s made it her mission to pair the two and enrich both of their lives, but pairing ornery and aloof August Cotton will take some work. The last thing August wants is some pushy southern woman occupying his parents’ bed and breakfast and forcing him to open up about the hell he narrowly escaped, but that’s exactly what Olivia intends.

They complete one another, and yet they can’t stand to be in the same room.

Can Olivia make this hardened Marine feel again and finally show his heart the way back home?


M: This is the first romance about a one-legged hero that Emily actually liked. She’s a total ableist about her book heroes. Plus the sex is way late and I didn’t even mind. That right there tells you that you should check this book out.

C: I feel a fair amount of shame about my able-ism, and what a bad person that makes me at my core, ok? But I really cared zero percent, because August was gorgeous hulk of sulk and scars and repressed sexual tension. Even with only one leg.

The Way Back Home was so good that I didn’t even realize the sex was late until I looked down and saw I was at 71%. Carmen Jenner is a hero.

Excerpt


“You know, if you want to see me naked and sweaty, all you have to do is
ask, darlin’.”
“I do not . . . I wasn’t . . .” My words are stolen from me as he stalks
forward with a maddening smirk on his face. “What are you doing?”
“Getting tired of waiting for you to be okay with this.”
“August, we talked about boundaries.” I press my hand to his chest
because he’s too close, and I can’t think straight with the heady scent of his
sweat and sandalwood soap distracting me. It wasn’t my intention to run my hand
over that sweat, to feel the hard-won muscle beneath, but here I am, petting
him as if he’s my favorite kitty.
“No. You talked about boundaries. I told you I was gonna fight, and I
ain’t above fightin’ dirty.”
“How dirty?” I breathe.
August’s lips curl up into a smile. “So dirty.”
Both hands snake around my waist and he lifts me onto the counter,
wedging his hips between my thighs. He hooks a finger in the sash and unties my
robe as if he were opening a gift made just for him. I wrap my legs around his
hips to pull him closer, and that’s all the admission he needs. He threads a
hand through my hair and pulls my neck back to expose the tender flesh to his
mouth. I close my eyes and whisper his name as my whole body turns to flame,
starved for the oxygen that only his touch can bring. His hot mouth trails down
my neck, his hands cup my breasts, squeezing, kneading, and I slide a hand
between us, into the waistband of his shorts. I take his hard length in my
hand, stroking him from base to tip. August grunts as he pushes my negligee out
of the way with frenzied hands. His fingers find me bare and exposed with no
panties.
“So fucking’ dirty,” he groans, wetting his lips.

Hi Guys! Since we started with the podcasting, we haven’t so much been doing the reviewing as much, or at all for that matter. Podcasting actually requires more writing than I originally thought it would. We quickly discovered that if we don’t have some sort of script in place (yes, that is us trying to follow a script and mostly failing) we sound even more like bumbling idiots. BUT, I liked this book so much I felt like it deserved a full write up, after Elle and I have both mentioned it up top in different podcast episodes. So, here’s Fly With Me!
