Review: Collateral Damage by Lynette Eason

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Released: Jan. 7, 2020
320 pages
About the Book:

Honorably discharged from the Army after an explosion nearly killed her, former military psychiatrist Brooke Adams has set up shop to help others--but her days of helping military personnel are over. She's got her own battles to fight from her time overseas, and she's not equipped to take on more. Former Army Special Ops Sergeant First Class Asher James could handle anything that war sent his way--terrorists, bombs, bullets. The only thing that scares him now is sleep. As the shadows close in, the nightmares begin.

Finally convinced that he needs help, Asher makes an appointment with a counselor, and Brooke is pressed by her boss to take him on. When he arrives at her office she isn't there--but a dead body is. Brooke is devastated when she walks in, and Asher is a conveniently strong shoulder to cry on. But she can't take him on as a client after sharing such an intimate and unprofessional moment, can she? And he's not sure he can handle sharing his deepest fears with such a beautiful woman.

When it becomes clear that Brooke was the real target of the attack--and that her secrets go even deeper than his own--Asher vows to protect her no matter what.

My Rating & Thoughts:    

Wow. The action starts right on the first page. I was hooked immediately and did not want to put it down. I felt like I was right there with Brooke, Asher and Caden trying to figure out what was going on. While I suspected who might be the main guy behind the evil events I wanted to be wrong. His reasoning and actions were just shocking and sickening when revealed. I really enjoyed this read and can't wait to read the rest of the series next. I am really hoping to spend time more time with some of the other characters. While this story focused on Brooke and Asher (and I did like them) but I was really drawn to Caden.
