Summary

After a botched raid in Afghanistan, ex-army specialist Michel Deverroux returned to Galveston, Texas, with more baggage than intended. Without family, friends, or money, Michel turned to drugs to relieve the horrors of war. He knew it was a dark path, but he saw no other choice. Michel was awash in a world of numbness and addiction until his estranged uncle Andy died, leaving Michel a rundown beach front home and a hefty inheritance.

With something to finally call his own in the world, a spark of hope returns to Michel's life - a spark that is ignited when he sees a somber yet beautiful woman walking along the beach. Michel falls instantly in love with her and nicknames her his "Mermaid". Now, determined to be a man that his new love would want to be with, Michel vows to turn his life around and win over his "Mermaid", Annabelle. Overcoming the shadows of his past seems nearly impossible, but the drive to have Annabelle gives Michel the motivation to overcome his demons.

Michel and Annabelle!

Michel still bears the emotional scars of serving in Afghanistan and is trying to adjust to civilian life. When his uncle passes away he finds out that he has inherited a house and hopes that this is the new beginning he needs.

When he walks into one of the shops in town he is surprised to see the woman that he has seen taking her nightly walks on the beach. She has a painful past of her own but will they be able to heal each other?

This is an emotional story about love, healing and new beginnings. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrator did a great job of bringing the story to life.

Grabs your heart.

This book grabs your heart from the beginning. You feel Michels struggles from Afghanistan to home and how he overcomes his past. I love the characters and how well they communicate. This has a good ending and good narration.

Short and simple

DC Cole does a great job narrating this one. I was expecting something different from this story from beginning chapters. But, it was a short, simple listen.

Nice but could have delved deeper into a few things

This is a lovely story about two sad souls. How they meet and change their lives. I should say all thanks to an uncle because otherwise it would not have been possible.
This is a short story and at times I can really feel sad or bad with the characters. I did listen to this on audio and D.C. Cole did an nice job.

The heart of a hero

The story has a really good Foundation and I probably would have given it 5 stars if it was a bit longer and not rush threw the last 3/4 of the book.
The D.C. Cole did a good job. His voice draws you in right away, I felt like he started to read faster as the book was ending, that’s the only reason I didn’t give him 5 stars.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review

Great story with romance and respect for veterans

I loved this story. It felt real. The story starts following veteran Michel who came home after a raid he was on went bad and he watched his best friend die. He ends up inheriting a beach home and meeting the first woman to really make him feel in a long time. Annabelle is still dealing from the man she loved breaking her heart and the death of her mother. She meets Michele and right away there is a spark. But they both have emotional issues and they need to overcome them to be happy together. This story was so beautiful. I felt it really showed the affect that loss takes on the soul. I loved how it showed what so many veterans really deal with when they come home. It also shows the true power of love. Instant love fans will love this story. I did! I hope in the future we get more Michel & Annabelle.

Short but sweet

I liked this short novel, it took me a minute to get used to the narration as per the woman’s part but Mr Cole has a very soothing and sexy voice. Yes it’s short but sometimes that’s a good thing as not to draw out a story line.
I would recommend this book. I got a code for the book but I would still get it.

Overcoming the past

Michel is trying to forget his rough childhood and the horrors of war. Annabelle is trying to get over a bad relationship.. There seems to be an instant chemistry between them but will their pasts pull them apart. I love how the author lets us see their relationship develop and especially how Annabelle reacts to his past. We also see how good and bad parenting affected these two characters. The narrator does an excellent job of portraying the emotions and desires of these characters. He creates both distinctive male and female voices. I asked to receive this Audible book and voluntarily wrote this unbiased review. I highly recommend this Audible book.
