5 HEARTS: "Ms. James has penned another fantastic story within these pages. This was the second book in the Damaged Heroes series and it was just as entertaining as the first book. I loved how the author weaved her twist and turns throughout the storyline and she had me completely engrossed right until the very last page. I highly recommend this story and I urge you to pick up the series because you won't be disappointed with this author's writing style. She's very talented and will definitely keep you entertained for a few hours while reading her work. I'm happy to tell you that the third book in this series, All the Right Reasons, has just been released also. Each book is a stand-alone story, but they're well worth reading in order." -- Diana Coyle, Night Owl Romance 4.75 RATING: "Heads up romance lovers, because I've got a good one for you. This novel combines romance, suspense, and just a dash of paranormal into a very readable and enjoyable package, and I think it will please the most discerning of readers. I certainly enjoyed it. One of the most outstanding attributes about Free Falling is its characters. Ms. James has developed a wonderful cast and has breathed enough life into them to make them almost jump off the page. They are well-rounded and developed fully enough to make them distinct and memorable, and they give the plot additional depth. I found Free Falling to be a very pleasant surprise." -- B.D.

Free Falling is book two in the Damaged Heroes series. I've enjoyed the other Sandy James books I've tried so knew I had to give this one a go. The blurb caught my attention when it said the leading lady had an empathic ability. This is set as a Contemporary Romance but it does have a bit of Suspense mixed into the story. We start off meeting Laurie Miller who is a psychologist at a free clinic that desperately needs a break. Her empathic power is on the fritz and with all the stress she heads out to her family's home in Montana. A blizzard hits and Laurie sees someone stranded on the side of the road and goes to help him. This is how we meet Ross Kennedy, a lawyer that was sent to Montana for a break but also to have someone sign a document. Laurie luckily saves him in time from the freezing weather and the two warm up together by the fire. Sparks fly and the duo decide to look each other up when they're back to their normal lives in Chicago. During their stay at the Montana house, Laurie finds a Prohibition Era journal from possibly someone in her family. It brings her ex-boyfriend back into the picture and secrets are unveiled that Laurie and Ross have to figure out if their relationship can withstand it. Free Falling had a bit more suspense than I anticipated and I wound up enjoying it! I'm usually not a big fan of that genre but this had just the right mixture of romance and a sliver of paranormal with the suspense. While the book was a bit predictable for me in some sections, the story overall was well written and kept my attention. So far it looks like this series can be read as standalone books if you want/need to. Ross's character was in the previous installment, but you'd be fine starting with this one if you wanted. All in all, I really enjoyed this novel and recommend it for anyone looking for a Contemporary Romance with a bit of suspense tossed in.

Free Falling is book two in the Damaged Heroes series by Sandy James. We first met Ross Kennedy in book one of this series as one of the attorney’s in charge of Seth’s inheritance. Ross was also romantically interested in Katie until Katie ended up with Seth. Ross has since thrown himself into his work. He thinks that Katie was the one for him and since he lost her, there is nothing else for him but work. His boss sees Ross’s work ethic as a heart attack waiting to happen. He needs some papers signed by an elusive client so he sends Ross off to Montana in search of Laurence Miller to get the documents signed and to also have some time away from the office. Laurie Miller is a psychologist. She works at a free clinic and her work is so important to her. Laurie is special though. She possesses an empathic gift, one that allows her to be able to read the emotions of her clients which helps her to treat them. She also occasionally has strong intuitions about things. As of late, though, her empathic abilities have vanished. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t read anyone. Her best friend points out how hard she’s been working and the amount of stress involved. She convinces her to go to Montana to her family’s ranch for some much needed peace and quiet. “She needed to shut people out for a while so she could recover the ability to let them back in.” Laurie knew to prepare for the cold winter weather in Montana but a full blown blizzard comes in. A car has gone into the ditch near the ranch house and Laurie is the only person that can rescue the driver. Ross and Laurie spend their time together at the ranch getting to know one another. There is no electricity so Ross can’t work which is not easy for him. The chemistry is strong between these two but Ross has to let go of his ghosts before there can be any hope of moving on. Who better to help him do that than Laurie. Once they are both back in Chicago they continue to see each other. Feelings are getting stronger between them. Because of Laurie’s abilities, she has never been able to get close to a man before. Even as her gift returns, she can’t read Ross, which is both a gift and a frustration. She can actually touch him, kiss him, without being overwhelmed with his emotions. But she has never had to try to figure out how someone else was feeling the old fashioned way. “This woman was driving him to distraction in more ways than he could count. She angered him. She frustrated him. And she filled him with so much desire that he almost couldn’t stand it.” As things are getting serious between Ross and Laurie, an ex-boyfriend of Laurie’s shows back up. It was a relationship that she knew wasn’t going to last but before she could break things off, he just disappeared from her life. Why is he back now? He keeps saying he wants to read an old journal that Ross and Laurie found dated back to the prohibition era but Laurie has no idea why it’s so important to him. The thing I really liked about this book is that there are so many things going on simultaneously. First, we are getting Ross and Laurie’s story. After they found the journal and began reading it, then we are also getting the story of the people in the journal at the same time. Then there is Alex, the ex. This man is loony with a capital “L.” He has managed to keep his walls up whenever he was around Laurie so she didn’t know the evil rage that was inside of him. His rage is getting stron

Very enjoyable. This story carries over some of the characters from Murphy's Law. That story and this are both stand-alone although reading them in order does enhance the over all understanding significantly. The addition of a hint of paranormal was a good twist as was the journal. I liked both. Just from my own point of view, it would have been nice if Ross were more interested in the journal overall. It seemed odd that he wasn't more interested.
