Collateral Damage (Danger Never Sleeps #1) by Lynette Eason

My thoughts:  A favorite action, suspense author, Lynette Eason again uses her skills to craft an exciting, mind boggling story that keeps the reader's adrenaline flowing while turning exciting page after page.

The reality of PTSD of those who protect and defend our nation by serving in the military is central to the plot as these issues are experienced by those who return from battle and how they manage to cope or get help.

But a scope of deceit, dishonesty corruption is the underlying current that drives this story and the target of this are innocent lives put in danger and at high risk. A sad tale but more realistic than our imagination can grasp.

I found this an interesting and entertaining read  but it is also and eye opener to how black the heart of man can actually become.

I recommend this book.

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.
