Reaching for sunlight...
Finn survived the ambush and came home to me, but in his head, the battle is still raging. He’s falling apart and I’m trying my best to pick up the pieces of him, to find the us we used to be. I love him as much as I ever did, but love isn’t enough to fix this. I thought telling my father about our relationship would be the hardest thing we’d ever have to face. I was wrong.
Lost in shadows...
All I wanted was to be worthy of Carrie. One mission, just one, and I’d be able to give her the future she deserved. Then everything went wrong, leaving me tainted and broken. Carrie wants me to be who I was, but all that’s left is what they made of me. I’m no good for her. No good for anyone like this. I have to figure out how to move forward. Alone.
Sometimes love isn’t enough…
For Finn, things will never be the like they were before he left...before he was the only one of his team to come home alive. No, those days are gone. Now he does what he can to forget what happened over there. How could Carrie ever want this scarred up shell of a man? She can do so much better, at least then her daddy would be happy.
Carrie would be lying if she said that this Finn standing before her was the same Finn that left on a mission months ago. But that Finn never came home. She is willing to do whatever it takes to make Finn see she loves him more than ever...even the scars...even the nightmares. She just wants him to open up and let her in so she can help take all the pain away. A mission of her own she is not sure she can accomplish.
This book absolutely tore me up and wreaked havoc on my heart and emotions. There were times I was hurting and crying over Finn and the hell he went through, only to turn right back around and loathe his very presence. As a reader you will feel every emotion available: pain, heartbreak, happiness, sadness, anger…everything. McLaughlin did such an amazing job writing this story and getting the emotion behind it out there for us to feel. To believe. To experience.
Undoubtedly my favorite book of the three. It was dark at times but then again, there was hope and light too. The buildup of emotions and story was almost too much at times and I found myself having to step away from the book. A few minutes here and there, just enough to regain some composure. I really believe that McLaughlin nailed the reality of it all and made this absolutely, without a doubt, 100% believable.
Sad now that the series is over, but I finish it with a smile on my face. It ends on a happy note and it ends perfectly. I couldn’t ask for a better ending to a series that has shook my world and made me a fan of McLaughlin’s for life. Whatever she writes I will be there ready to read it.
