Review: Each book in the Wounded Hearts collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
Dusty is the youngest of his team mates and the one that seems to be having the hardest time. He lost his hearing in the explosion that injured his teammates. He even almost went feral and sent his commander in the same direction. Thank god his teammates helped him come back, but the truth was he wasn’t handling it well. Taking a job in the woods just helps him to connect and leads him to salvation.
Trace is an amazing artist who lost his way. His ex-boyfriend was sent to prison after he assaulted him, but he was having troubles with it. Depression and PTSD sets in and well you can guess where that heads. Thanks to one sexy shifter who might just need him as much as he needs him. Then the past comes for him and it is going to take Dusty and his team to save him.
Now this author has made a few mistakes that have been missed in editing, but it doesn’t take away from the story as bad as I would have expected. However I still noticed it.
Other than my issues with this story it was a fun read. I enjoyed it and can’t wait to start on the next book.
