The second, sizzling book in Sara Jane Stone's Second Shots series...

When Dominic Fairmore left Oregon to be all he could be as an Army Ranger, he always knew he’d come back to claim Lily Greene. But after six years away and three career-ending bullets, Dominic is battered, broken, and nobody's hero—so he stays away. Until he learns Lily has been the victim of a seemingly random attack. He’ll do anything to keep her safe . . . even go home.

Lily is starting to find a life without Dominic when suddenly her wounded warrior is home and playing bodyguard—though all she really wants is for him to take her. But she refuses to play the part of a damsel in distress, no matter how much she misses his tempting touch. He’ll leave as soon as she’s safe and Lily knows her heart will never heal.

But as attraction stirs to so much more, danger closes in. With more than Lily’s heart at stake, Dominic can no longer draw a line between protecting Lily and loving her . . .

I was given this ARC for an honest review.
After six years as an Army Ranger, Dominic’s army career is ended by three bullets, two in the chest but the worst shot was through his right hand. He’d always planned on returning to his one and only true love, Lily.
Despite physical therapy, he is unable to regain the full use of his hand, hence unable to secure what he considers suitable employment.
Lily, who has waited years to reclaim her true love, realizes after Dominic’s career-ending move and the fact that he remains across the country, she can wait no longer.
When she survives what the police claim a random attack, fear leaves her an emotional cripple. Re-enter Dominic as a body guard. Though she knows he’ll leave again after finding her attacker, she can’t resist him.
I found this book entertaining from the first page to the last. The main characters were realistic, dealing with real-life problems, combining action, romance, and humor along with the trials of PTSD. Supporting characters were well developed also and left room for another book without leaving you with a cliff hanger.
This story is well written and flows very nicely. I would read more by this author.  I’d give it four stars.
