Book Review

Publisher's Note:

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.

Collateral Damage

by Lynette Eason

Overall Book Review:

Collateral Damage is the premier book in the Danger Never Sleeps series by Lynette Eason.  Be prepared to jump right into the action and not want to quit until the end.  Eason spins a tale of danger and the unknown while covering common themes found in tales of soldiers and war.

The main characters are likeable and talented.  As one might expect, they each come with issues of their own and then they have the common challenge that has brought them together.  In this particular story, their challenges did not keep them from moving forward.  It is refreshing to have examples of people who were learning to overcome rather than being paralyzed by struggles.

Eason writes an interesting story in which she introduces all sort of people.  Each person has his or her own feel and does not feel like a slightly altered carbon copy.  This fast-paced, romantic, Christian fiction book allows readers to contemplate various ethical situations and decide how they would react.
