Summary

Captain Britt Story lost more than her left arm in Afghanistan. She lost faith in honor and humanity when her command’s failure to act cost a young soldier’s life, turning Britt into a ticking political time bomb the U.S. Army and her father, an influential senator, are desperate to disarm.

Occupational therapist First Lieutenant Teddy Alexander was thrust into the national spotlight when she successfully petitioned to receive survivor’s benefits after her wife was killed in Afghanistan days before DOMA was repealed. Six years later, she remains safely cocooned in the past by her military family until her assignment to rehab Captain Story drags them both into a confusing battle between duty, consequences, and hot attraction.

What's not to love?

First of all ... Wow! The amount of research that went into this book is pretty amazing. Covered topics about amputees and their recovery issues both physical and menta and breakthroughs on the horizon; thoroughbred breeding and running of the farm's business; complexities of being widow; a soldier with PTSD fighting the system, and the "family" behind the uniforms. I feel it really shows all the extra work and heart that was put into this one. Secondly ... this book tackled some tough topics and I applaud this.These don't weigh down the story line, but it is integral to it particularly milistary sexual trauma. This is still a seriously broken system and the more this stays at the forefront the more we force the issue; and this is one that needs to be. Thank you for this, too many victims still need their voices heard The insight into some of the personal demons the two main characters deal with really put depth and flesh to them. They became real and you could feel their scars both on the inside and out. There is a lot of life that happens in these pages, it just really kept me hooked and less than 24 hours later ... I was done. Took on some heavy issues but it wasn't dark or weighty, the flow of the storyline kept things moving right along; and what else can I say ... love wins! I especially liked that when everything got chaotic two mature minds reached out and listened to each other and found the truth without getting all muddy in the process ... score one for open and honest communication! Thank you for having a fresh voice for the narrator, she has a much more natural flow and feels/sounds more real when switching between characters. Good female narrators are hard to find, but you guys did a great job with finding her.

More than five stars.

I loved Blades of Bluegrass. What's not to love. Set On a beautiful horse farm in Kentucky, a returning wounded warrior, political intrigue, and romance. Hollis Elizabeth does a great job with the narration.
