Any one picking this up looking for a sports romance may be a little disappointed. Hockey is the backdrop but the real story is about a wounded warrior, Liam, dealing with PTSD and returning to life as a civilian. With all the turmoil in his life the last thing he has the ability to handle is a relationship. So when the attraction flares to Marlena, his sister's best friend, he does everything he can to push her away but the chemistry and desire is too strong.

This story is raw and compelling. Both main characters are dealing with demons but you can't help but cheer for them. It's a fantastic story that is so well written you find yourself totally consumed by it. This is a highly recommended read.

Undefeated (Bomb Squad #2) by Melissa Cutler

Yoga instructor Marlena Brodie needs to work with her best friend Olivia’s brother and her high school crush, Liam McAllister, after volunteering to help the Bomb Squad.

The book starts out with Liam winning a message with Marlena. Marlena and Liam end up in an argument and have some issues that need to be resolved. In the meantime, the Bomb Squad is not doing so well. The coach and Marlena set up yoga classes for the team in hopes that it will help balance the team and bring back their focus.

Because of the classes, Marlena and Liam start spending a lot of time together. It turns out; they have a lot in common. I love that he lets Marlena in. She understands him and is an asset towards his recovery.

Unlike the rest of the Bomb Squad that suffered physical injuries while in the military. Liam suffers from mental problems. Liam was a medic in the military but gave up practicing after his trauma. As part of his rehabilitation, he used prolonged exposure therapy or P.E.T. He loves playing hockey on the Bomb Squad but feels like a hypocrite because he does not have a physical ailment. However, Liam has had a difficult battle recovering.

Some amazing things happen in this book. It is scary and heartwarming. It is sweet and humorous. Melissa Cutler does a fantastic job writing a realist and moving novel. This is one of those stories I don’t think I will ever forget. It would make an inspirational movie.

I'm so ready to move to Destiny Falls and find my own wounded hockey playing warrior. Liam might not have had a physical injury, but suffering from PTSD is as bad as one, it just doesn't show on the outside. He was trying to help himself with therapy and yoga, but it just wasn't cutting it. His ability to let Marlena in was such a strong move that you can't help but cheer him on. I think Marlena and her strength to take him on while dealing with her own issue was amazing. I love this series and look forward to reading more since we still have an entire team that needs a lot of lovin'.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. ( )
