Review.... Taylor

Irish Winters is an award-winning author who dabbles in poetry, grandchildren, and rarely (as in extremely rarely) the kitchen. More prone to be outdoors than in, she grew up the quintessential tomboy on a farm in rural Wisconsin, spent her teenage years in the Pacific Northwest, but calls the Wasatch Mountains of Northern Utah home. For now.
The wife of one handsome husband and mother of three perfect sons, Irish divides her time between writing at home, and travelling the country with her man while – writing. (Seriously, what else?)
She believes in making every day count for something, and follows the wise admonition of her mother to, “Look out the window and see something!”

Some covert missions take place deep inside a guy….
Stoic ex-Marine, Taylor Armstrong, survived his arrogant father and one too many deployments. Battered and disillusioned, he’s built a wall to keep the world at bay. His rule is simple: a man can’t lose a friend he’s never made. It works—until an arrow rips into his chest and changes everything he knew about his father. His mother. Himself….
She never gave up…
Gracie Fox has loved Taylor since the fateful day he was ripped from her life as a four-year old. He has no memory of her or the loving family that was forced to give him up. It seems he’ll never know—until the ancient rite of revenge, the blood hunt, collides with his carefully structured life and drops him into Gracie’s life again. She seizes the chance, determined he will remember….
Even if she has to tie him to her bed.

Sami's Review:
Taylor Armstrong is a proud Marine and one who guards his heart very closely. After losing way too many friends and not having the love of the one man who was supposed to love him unconditionally he guards himself even against friendship. When what should have been just a normal day at the range turns up with him being shot, by an arrow no less, and on the brink of death no one is more surprised than he is, but he is determined that he will make it through this alive and make whoever put in in this position pay. When he wakes up in a bed and trussed up by none other than a woman he doesn’t know what to think. When Grace hears that Taylor has been shot she rushes home to take care of the only man who has ever held her heart, even though he doesn’t know it. When Taylor regains consciousness and his captor Gracie starts speaking he is sure he has been thrown down the rabbit hole. The more he tells her the more his walls start to crumble and he starts to let a sort of peace enter his heart. Yet how does he reconcile his new family with the hard one he grew up in? How does he keep his family out of jail for things they perceived as justice when the law failed them so long ago? Will Taylor gain it al just to lose it to the justice system? Or will the truth prevail and set them all free?

Taylor brushed the sweat and tears off his face. Sure seemed like Death had a good grip. His life flashed before his eyes, a lightning strike he couldn’t control. His past unwound—his childhood, all those angry, awkward school years of never belonging. Always looking over his shoulder for someone to be there, for someone who wanted to be there for him. Like her.

A childhood friend he hadn’t thought of in years smiled through the murky mist, a dark-haired girl with sparkling stars in her eyes. She’d seemed the only bright spot in life back then, but what was her name? Was she even real? Reality eluded him, not that it mattered. He’d given up on happiness long ago.
