She was born in the Philippines, raised in Australia, and now calls the United States home, and she can currently be found enjoying the shores of Miami with her husband, two daughters, and a miniature schnauzer.

    I feel silly, but I was not aware Arrest is a sequel to Disarm,

    I feel silly, but I was not aware Arrest is a sequel to Disarm, a book I've wanted to read since reading the amazing Braine's review at Talk Supe. If I had realized, I would have definitely made the time to read Disarm first. As it is, I was left curious enough that, even though I already know how Henry and Elsie's story goes, I'm now even more interested and will definitely go back to read it. I will say that not having an already established investment in this couple did have me slow to warm to their story. I didn't know these people, their long road to marriage, or how deep their love went. But I found out quickly. Gray did a good job of interspersing bits of the backstory into Arrest, and I was able to pick up on the dynamics and fall into a very powerful story.

    I won't sugar coat it, Arrest was sometimes hard to read. Very hard. To be fair, most marriage-in-crisis books are. Despite that, I tend to find myself drawn to them. I think that's partially due to a morbid fascination, because a troubled marriage is brutal and messy and so painful. I'm also drawn to them for the examination of the issues and the methods in which they're worked out, or not. It's like, you know when you find out someone has an illness, and you think to yourself if you engage in any of the factors that might have led to the illness? That's how I approach marriage-in-crisis books. I am a painfully self-aware person, always hoping to be aware of my flaws or issues so I can correct them. I look for pieces of myself in the characters and wonder if there's a lesson to learn. I struggle along with them, knowing these issues lurk and arise in many marriages. I love when a book give me insights into not only the characters and their issues, but issues that could possibly relate to my life as well.

    In Henry and Elsie's case, we have a long and emotionally heavy past that led to a passionate marriage. Now, anyone who's been married more than a day knows that the story is only beginning at "I do." Though Henry and Elsie made it through some really rough times - her brother's death, his struggles to cope with life at war, a breakup, other relationships- with a love that is strong, life moves on and as it moves, new problems pop up. Henry has a new, demanding job as a police officer with long hours and the mental strain and solitude that brings him. He is a man who feels so deeply, can't let the casualties of war or his job go easily. The very thing that makes him such a good man also threatens his mental health and his marriage. Elsie has a rewarding job with a boss who's a little too interested in her, she's lonely because her husband works long hours and comes home withdrawn. Fertility and children is an issue that strains the marriage. Jealousy and temptations arise. It's just...life. So, so messy, but when you have two characters who've gone through so much to make it this far, and are willing to fight hard for a future, it's beautiful.

    Arrest is Henry and Elsie's story of what comes after the HEA. The more I've considered it, the more value I find. We also get an excerpt from the upcoming Surrender, centering on Julie, Elsie's brother's girlfriend. This looks to be another moving story from June Grey, and is already on my to-read list.

    Good

    Love the characters in the Henry stories, but Lord they can wrench your heart. No easy happily ever after here, but it is real life with slightly more drama. Henry and Elsie always make it work. Love the series and will continue to follow. I hope Elsie's boss gets a story and also her coworker. Hopefully they get matched together.

    Not the best book. To much drama and a women who let's a man treat her like nothing for the name of love. Will not read the next one.

    Elsie and Henry have been through a lot and just when they shoul

    Elsie and Henry have been through a lot and just when they should be on their way to a happily ever after, life pops up to bite them in the butt once again. This time, they're both to blame. Henry is out of the military and working as a police officer. Elsie can't stand that he's constantly in danger. His PTSD is showing signs of coming back and she doesn't know what to do to stop him from falling into that deep hole once again. They both make mistakes–not of the cheating variety, I feel I have to make that very clear–and their relationship is definitely on the rocks. Can they pull it–and each other together–in time to save their marriage? 

    Arrest gives readers an honest look at married life. The good, the bad, the ugly, and the emotional. After all that Elsie and Henry went through in the first six books in the Disarm series, I had to know how their story ended. I wanted desperately for them to find their happily ever after, free of the past that threatened to separate them. I couldn't put this book down once I picked it up, even though I was terrified of where the ending would take me. It wasn't pretty, but it was real and gut-wrenchingly honest and it just about wrung me dry of all emotions. 

    Being that I was very much satisfied with the ending of Disarm, I very much questioned the need for this book and it's not because I didn't want more of Elsie and Henry. It was more because I knew to write it, there would have to be some amount of drama and strife in their life together and I didn't know if I could take any more... or if they could. In the end, I think this book was a great addition to the series. I do hope, however, this really is the end of the drama and pain for them. 

    All that said, I did really appreciate this book. Like or enjoy probably aren't the right words to use. It was angsty and painful at times. If you're looking for unicorns and kittens, this definitely isn't the book for you. If you can appreciate an unflinchingly honest look at life, love and the scars we all carry with us, you should be reading this series. I'm very much looking forward to the next book, Surrender, which follows Julie, Elsie's late brother's girlfriend, as she tries to put her own life back together. I know to expect to use lots of tissues for this one, too. 

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

    I received this book from the author for an honest review. Havin

    I received this book from the author for an honest review.
    Having read disarm this book fit right into where disarm left off.  Seeing the struggle of loss love and ptsd was heart breaking.  




    After finding each other again Elsie and Henry seem to have finally found happiness after being married and now living together how could anything tear this perfect couple up? 




    This was a story about real life issues that could happened to even the happiest of marriages.  Some of the things Henry did made me want to scream and yell and despise him and then he would do something in the book that made you fall back in love with him again.  This story for me didn't make me as emotional as disarm and I'm not sure if that was because I now understood the authors writing and had build a so called wall up around the emotional aspect of myself.  Because in disarm I bawled like a baby. 




    This book brought back all our favorite characters from disarm in a new light.  Seeing the struggle between two happy go lucky people who want nothing more then to live happyever after was sad but to see the end was well worth it.




    Over all this book was very well written and tied into the the 1st book flawlessly.  It held a good pace and keeps the readers interest with twists and turns.

    June Gray has written something real. Marriages (especially one

    June Gray has written something real. Marriages (especially one so fraught with insecurities and past issues) are hard work, and Henry and Elsie's is no different. Their love is deep and spans almost their entire life, but it gets tested. Elsie is a strong woman, someone who will fight to the death for someone she deems worthy. She sees the past starting to repeat itself, so of course she does everything in her power to save her Henry. How could she not?

    Arrest is a fiting continuation to Disarm and if you love the characters like I do, you won't be disappointed.

    To be clear: This is a complete novel with NO cliffhanger.

    Idk..

    Well i liked the other stories in this series and this one seems to be interesting but I'm not going to pay $10 for it when it's probably a short with a cliffhanger. I'm disappointed though because i couldn't wait for this one to be published
