Summary

Growing up a military brat and spending eight years overseas with the Army Medical Corps, clinical social worker, Willa Smith, has had enough of rules and regulations. Still able to work with veterans as she did at the VA Hospital, she is much happier at the new and far more relaxed South Avenue Shelter, until one of its residents is implicated in a murder.

Former military turned security operative, Dimas Mazur, has worked for PASS security, his brother’s company, since he returned stateside after a disabling injury. The job keeps him busy, but when a homeless veteran he knows runs into trouble with the law, he doesn’t hesitate to jump in. The strong-headed counselor at the shelter where his friend stayed is an unexpected bonus.

Until she puts herself square in the sights of the man he’s trying to take down.

Full of Suspense, unexpected romance

I love how the narration brings these real and relatable characters to life. Our imagination can do a lot but the added feeling portrayed by the narration brings it a step further.

Book two of the PASS series, though it could easily be read as a standalone book, I highly recommend you start at the beginning and get to love the characters and enjoy they as they move along. I am left knowing that even though I am not quite ready for the end but I know Ms. Barker will bring them along to help our new characters grow.

Willa is a new character to us but she fits right in. She is a strong independent woman who is a little set in her ways and beliefs. After watching her parents, choosing to not need a relationship to live her life to the fullest. Going against odds and serving her country and then coming back but wanting to continue to help those who have served. She was excited for this opportunity at the VA Shelter, connecting with the other Vets. Hoping she can help them move forward.

Dimas might have gotten a little bit of a bad rap in book one. He turns out to be so much more than I expected. He is caring and perceptive. Seeing what people need before they even know, and doing everything that he can to make others happy. He hides his own struggles well and doesn't talk much of his time served and the incident that brought him home. He was definitely not looking for a relationship but Willa caught his eye and he never got a chance to look back.

The explosive beginning when these characters meet will draw you in and hook you. The back and forth until they decide that maybe the draw and attraction might be worth a try. Watching them slowly look at what they always believed and maybe bend those beliefs a little is beautiful. Willa and Dimas both try to separately try to uncover the mystery that is so expertly weaved into the story. Maybe it will be easier if they communicate and work together. Dimas jumps into full protector mode.

Once again Ms Barker tackles a difficult life situation that is a bit of an eye opener but it doesn't over power the story. Emotions will be high, full of ups and downs, smiles and humor so be on the ready.
