Warrior (First to Fight Series Book 2) Kindle Edition
One night with a hero. One secret. One man who can save her life.
MARSOC Operator Benjamin Hart is used to having control in all things. As his Team’s Joint Terminal Attack Controller, he’s always responsible and contained. His careful composure snaps when he sees Olivia “Livvie” Walker, his best friend’s little sister. She’s a spitfire with heated looks and smart mouth to match. He comes alive when he’s around her and for once he throws caution to the wind and spends a night with her before he deploys to parts unknown.
Livvie has always wanted Ben and even though sensibility tells her to steer clear, her heart can’t resist. The night was supposed to be no-strings-attached, until it produces consequences neither of them had anticipated. When she reaches out to Ben without success, she decides to forget him — and how safe she felt in his arms.
When Ben returns after a career-ending injury, Livvie has no other choice but to come clean. Until a devastating attack bares her secret on national news before she has a chance. She has only one way to repair the damage.
She must trust the man she lied to. The only man who could save what they had created together.

It is an enjoyable read but more should have been written about Ben’s time in hospital so we understood more and a solution to his efforts to find team mate would have been good
I received this book as an ARC for a freely given and honest review.
They mystery of Olivia's unexplained threats to her life was I thought well entwined throughout the romantic storyline. I loved the determination, inner strength and stubbornness of Olivia to create a life when obstacles are thrown at her and the military background was told in a thoughtful and respectful way.
The emotion and strength expressed by Olivia made me absolutely love her and I wanted her and Ben to have their second chance at romance.
The extended family and friends also provided a great source of humour and sentimental moments.
I did not pick the dangerous connection in Olivia's life until the end and thought it was woven really well into the history of this group of family and friends.
This is a fantastic read and its one of those stories I would pick up again.

Olivia and Ben have a one night together before he gets deployed.
Olivia finds out she is pregnant and tries to get in contact with Ben but to no avail.
This book had all the feels and was a good book
Recommend this read and the series.
I received a free copy of this book via booksprout for an voluntarily honest review.
I was hooked within the very first page, till the very last word.
With solid characters with depth and definition , the author delivered this story with a lot of thought and detail.
A perfect blend of humour, turmoil, suspense, love and angst. Warrior is a story that will certainly hold a place on your bookshelf not only for the story line but the characters who will bury themselves in your soul.
Some moments within the story are raw and heartbreaking, I wiped a tear away here and there and really felt for the heartache and turmoil that the characters went through. The author has her way with words, pulling at your heart strings, having you sheepishly grinning, fanning oneself or laughing at certain moments and even oooing and arghing. !
I love this authors writing style.
The plot was well delivered, crisp, well detailed in relation to PTSD as well as the heart condition that was mentioned within the story.
I throughly enjoyed the alpha male and strong willed female lead in this story.
Ben and Livvie were a perfect pair, the love and sexual chemistry was off the charts and I could see and feel all emotions the characters dealt with - confusion, love and heartache within there lives.
The secondary characters played there part. Strong and bountiful. As a reader they were delivered with the same depth and definition as the main characters and truly has there moments within the story line.
The plot twist certainly had me back tailing thinking WTF !! I never saw this coming and it was well revealed and had my twinging in my seat .
Overall, I highly recommend this story to all. But be prepared for some this could be a trigger, or you may know someone who has been affected by PTSD. In some scenes I even found myself teary .
A stunning story of true love, survival - moving forward and new beginnings.

I will be mentioning things in my review that might spoil this story for some readers. I only do this to help the reader understand my problems with this story.
Ben is a Marine about to deploy to Afghanistan. He finally gives in to his attraction to his best friend's sister, Olivia. They have hot, unprotected sex the night before he leaves. Ben asks Livvie to wait for him and she says yes because she's always been attracted to him, too. Flash forward a few months and Livvie finds out she's pregnant. She sends emails, her only form of communication with Ben, to let him know but hears nothing from him. Now here's where the "how much can we make s@&! happen in Livvie's life" begins. Wayyyyyyy too much stuff!
1. Livvie finds out that her unborn child has a life threatening heart condition that will require major surgeries at his birth.
2. Her dad dies of an unexpected heart attack.
3. Someone breaks into her house and tries to harm her and her baby.
4. Ben returns home with hearing loss, PTSD, and tramatic brain injury and remorse for the deaths of his men. In other words, screwed up and not wanting a relationship with Livvie or anyone else.
5. Ben just happens to see cop cars at Livvie's house. He sees Livvie with the baby and IMMEDIATELY accuses her of being with another man. So much for "I always wanted you." Such a d@&!head.
6. And, Livvie lets him get away with it, and makes no effort to defend herself or correct him. Hello!
7. Ben disappears again.
8. Livvie has a scare with the baby's heart.
9. Livvie is shot.
10. Ben just moves in to protect them.
11. The baby is kidnapped at a fair, but found unhurt.
12. Then Livvie is kidnapped by her father's girl friend, but really Livvie's natural mom who blames Livvie for the death of Livvie's dad and little brother, but Livvie is rescued.
And through all this mess, Ben hassles Livvie about not telling him about his son and LIVVIE LETS HIM. Give me a break!
This could have been a good romance. There could have been drama without throwing in everything but the kitchen sink. Just too much!
WARNING: explicit sexual situations and language
Second chance, secret baby, H in love with best friend’s sister, PTSD issues, deaths, deranged woman kidnapping the h and her child are part of the storyline. I might have missed three seasons of All My Children during the skimming.
Add in a doormat h who doesn’t stand up for herself and a woe is me H and you got the complete story.
The author jammed too much drama into one book. It was like four seasons of a soap opera. The only cliche not thrown into the story was who shot JR.
