I liked the premise of this book The way Sean and Gabe wereare together What for me stopped it from being a great book was the sidetrack into the pagan rituals I know it was a main part of the story but it detracted from the story as a wholeThe unimaginable lives of these two men and how they cope with their very real limitations was very well handled but again it seemed like a promotion of paganisim if thats a word than a great story of two people falling in love whilst coping with a lack of everything in a world that offers them nothing I normally don't mind learning about new religons but this was to much in your face for my liking and took away from a very good story Although saying that I shall be reading up about pagan rituals

Sean Dempsey came home from Ira with artificial knees scorched retinas and a lot of baggage He supplements his disability checks with money made writing romance novels under a female pseudonym ironic as he has grown very nervous around women since a certain. Memorable characters despite some writing flawsWarning This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS Rating 810PROS There’s an excellent portrayal here of a veteran with both physical and emotional scars I know very little about PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome but Sean seems like a very good depiction of it He says after a panic attack at one point “It scares me to think all I’ll ever be able to do is fake being civilized” I love the main characters They’re atypical romance novel protagonists almost antiheroes in a way they’re damaged and poor yet still they’re happy The guys’ initial impressions of each other are frank sympathetic but not pitying and that bluntness colors their entire relationship They don’t tread lightly around each other’s disabilities It’s refreshing and sometimes a little shocking how direct they are with each other I got a good sense of the guys’ emotional connection They’re incredibly sweet to each other understanding of each other’s flaws and limitations and they’re just easy together They banter and are supremely comfortable in each other’s companyCONS The last several chapters are markedly different from the rest of the story and I didn’t think there was a good transition between the 2 parts Most of the book is somber and dramatic and then the ending is syrupy sweet and seems at odds with the seriousness of the rest of the story I really wanted to see some scenes from Gabe’s POV The author does a great job of exploring the psychological difficulties of living with Sean’s problems and I wanted to see the same from Gabe especially since his disability is so unusual yet he’s remarkably chipper about it We see external proof of Gabe’s human fragility uivering voice shaking hands etc but I wanted to see inside his head There’s a decent amount of sex here but it’s not the focus of the story Still I must admit to being VERY upset about not getting to see Sean bottom for the first time The characters make a pretty big deal about it Sean keeps telling Gabe he’s not ready yet but will be eventually and Gabe’s super understanding and then when Sean decides he’s ready Gabe’s excited but still gentle and soothing “you’re gonna’ love it I’ll make it good” etc and thenfade to black and the story jumps ahead by 2 weeks The book contains a lot of dialogue which I think is mostly a good thing since that’s what made me really believe in the guys’ connection But occasionally their conversations were a little hard for me to follow They talk about uite a few things I have no knowledge of like paganism and particular cult movies and they left me in the dust than onceOverall comments Despite some flaws I think this book is worth reading if you’re looking for a story about memorable characters This is a great example of a book in which the characters’ problems still exist at the end but their relationship enables them to better handle those problems

Review Shell Shocked

Shell ShockedSuicide bomber When he meets Gabriel Herne legless phone psychic the sparks startle him It's everything he's written about and never believedSwept into a whirlwind romance Sean has to learn about his newfound bisexuality and his lover's pagan faith at the sa. This book was really not at all what I expected and having read it I'm not sure what to say about it or even whether to recommend itIt is a powerful book psychologically It might be difficult to read for anyone who's been in the military as Sean one of the main characters is a victim of PTSD after being victim of a bomb in Irag He has graphic flashbacks It might be difficult to read for someone who deals with mental issues because Gabriel the other character is bipolar and lost both legs in an accidentThese two deeply injured characters bond and combine forces living basically hand to mouth do we really treat our vets our mentally challenged so badly Sean writes romance novels for money and Gabriel does phone psychic work It makes me weep to see their difficulties and yet they persevere overcome are happy with what they have And they create their own happy ending that I really would not have expected
