Whenever I read a book where a child is abused, I react strongly to it. Deep Night is such a story. Artfully written, our author presents us with characters that have endured pain both physical or emotional and the impact it has to their lives. Sara presents herself as an adult fully ready to engage obstacles at full speed. This is a front. Behind that tough exterior is a fragile child living with the emotional upheaval of parental abuse. She is a remarkable character to study and experience this story with. What happens to a person who has survived sexual abuse? Are they able to live a fulfilling life as an adult and experience closeness with a partner? What does it take to make that intangible connection to partner? Chris is our hero. With all his flaws, he is a protector seeking his place in the world after serving in Afghanistan. After all he has survived, including physical and emotional injuries, he still holds on to life and the desire to make something better of what he has been given. His drive to survive is admirable while he faces the consequences of his injuries. PTSD affects all victims, some more than others. The plight of victims to survive the outcome of their injuries is the undercurrent of this book. From Miller who is the soldier without a future, to Chris the protector in quest to a better life, all these characters will tug at your hearts.

I found this book to be enjoyable. The reason is because it is a book that flows easily. Before you know it you are done. There is not a lot of internal dialogue. There is just normal every day dialogue between the characters. While a medic in the Army, Chris, decided he wanted to be a physician. To meet his goal, he is currently working as an EMT. His boss is no other than his best childhood friend, Sara. When she was younger, she had a crush him. Of course, he was not aware. Sara had an abusive childhood so tended to be more introverted. She did not attend the normal high school parties, prom nor had a lot of friends. Chris slowly picks up on she is broken and that something was frightening her. He just wanted to protect her. I thought this was a well written story. It drew me in from the start. The characters are a bit broken but together they begin to heal. There is minimal cursing and the sex scenes are tastefully done. I look forward to reading the story of the other brothers.

Predictable, yet enjoyable. Reviewed by Gemini for Read Your Writes Book Reviews Rating: 3.5 Stars Deep Night is the third book in the Denver Heroes series. It focuses on the third and final Wilson brother, Chris, who is a paramedic. Sara Richards, their childhood neighbor and longtime friend is also part of the book and the family. The other two books were about Chris’ older brothers, a policeman and a fireman. Just like After Midnight and Cries in the Night, Deep Night can be read as a standalone. Having read all of the books recently, I felt very familiar with the family. And, just like any other family, there were a few secrets. Oddly enough, the biggest secret is being held by Sara. It always makes for an interesting dichotomy when a book has both romantic and violent themes. The prologue jumps right into Sara’s dark secret and then the first chapter gets into a normal day as a paramedic. Chris and Sara ride together as Denver paramedics. The entire book continues at the same pace, up and down. Although, I would have thought that the book would have been more about Chris, it felt more about Sara. She had the demons and Chris had no clue what they were although he had known her for most of their lives. The fact that she was able to survive all of this time is a testament to how strong a woman she was. Chris may have spent several years overseas as a Navy medic but he was not prepared for everything that happens after he moves in with Sara. He has no clue that she has been crushing on him since they were kids either. They learn that they really don’t know each other at all. Of course, that all changes very quickly when both of their pasts come into full focus. I found Deep Night to be predictable but still very enjoyable. It follows a familiar script but it was worth the read. This book seemed a little more gloomy than the first two books but I can only assume that was due to the fact that it was likely the final book so Kathy Clark decided to go out with a bang. **Received a copy from Random House ~ Loveswept in exchange for an honest unbiased opinion.**

4 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, grief, betrayal, secrets, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first After Midnight (Denver Heroes, #1) Cries in the Night (Denver Heroes, #2) This is Sara and Chris’s story. Sara has a tragic past but it is a secret. She was betrayed by someone close to her and she still has not yet recovered. Chris is her childhood friend who is now her partner. They are both attending classes and working. Chris wants Sara but she runs hot and cold with him. When a tragedy strikes they are drawn to each other in their grief. But can Chris ever get Sara to open up about her secrets or will she push him away before he finds them out? What happens when she thinks her past is coming back for her? Will Chris be able to stop her before she does something she can’t take back? Can they count on each other to heal from the tragedy the surrounds them? There are some tear filled moments and some anger filled moments in this story. But all in all I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

Heart-rending, emotional story of survival, with lots of gory details and bloody situations. Sara is a strong woman, a true survivor, who has been able to build a successful life for herself, despite the tragedy of her childhood, that no one is aware of. The story starts with a prologue, that is not for the faint at heart, and continues from there to the adrenaline filled work situation, that Sara and Chris face daily, as EMTs. Chris has a need to protect and serve those around him. The way he takes care of his former mate of military, Miller, is touching. I liked both Sara and Chris, the characters are deep, they have faced tragedy, pain, and sorrow, but are working with the issues they have, they support each other when needed, and the passion between them is tender and loving. They have been friends since their childhood, but now as work partners and roommates, get to know the person their grew up to be. The attraction and interest between them is realistic, and the built up of the relationship is credible. I wish the book would have concentrated a bit more into the building of the relationship, and the characters. Because there are lots of stories of their daily life as EMTs, going into a great detail, that in my opinion, made the story move slowly, and the possible messages it could have delivered were lost in the excess of details. There were lots of potential for deep, meaningful moments and messages, since the story touches many sensitive, and sometimes raw, issues, like suicide, PTSD, problems with legalized drugs, sexual abuse, domestic abuse, etc. With the struggle and pain from the past, both Chris and Sara go through a journey to heal and conquer their past demons, with the support and love from each other, and the family and friends who stand beside them. A poignant, moving, and yet a joyful story of the healing power of love ~ Three Spoons and a teaspoon on the side

Lots of sad, serious and tragic moments in this friends to lovers romance. I enjoyed it, but would have liked to have had more focus on the Chris and Sara as a couple. There was so much going on around them, that it felt like some of their issues weren't fully resolved. If you've read the first two books in the series, you're enjoy catching up with Chris' brothers and their significant others. Overall an okay read. I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

Kathy Clark is a "new to me" author. After reading this, I definitely will be reading more of her books. This is a dark read and is full of suspense, love, sexual abuse and just everyday life for our paramedics, cops and branches of the service. Although there are a lot of serious subjects/sadness in this book, it was an amazing book! Very well written and touched on each subject to make you aware but didn't dwell on it. A must read for sure!!

I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn't. I do love the premise of the book, the first responders,specifically emt's, were great and Chris is perfection. However, there just wasn't anything wow in this story. There were times that could have been WOW but were more fluff than anything. It was interesting to read about some of the calls they responded to, but I felt too much of the book was devoted to those specifics rather than to the relationship between Chris and Sara. This one was just OK for me.

Has some fairly graphic descriptions of sexual abuse of a child. Otherwise, a decent read.

This book was not a romance suspense. I loved the other 2 in this series. But I was so disappointed in this one. It was a waist of money.
