Navy SEAL Caden Lawless is coming home. Holding his best friend as he bled out in the Afghanistan desert, Caden became bound by Justin's desperate plea to care for his fiancée and to love the son he'd never know. Battling a barrage of memories and with a head full of noise, Caden travels cross country in his beat up Chevy to make good on his promise.
One knock on Piper Stevens' door and he knows she isn't broken. Pregnant and mourning the only man she's ever loved, Piper wields her anger as a sword, slashing into Caden's grief and his heart.
As Caden works to silence his demons, he finds a new mission, one far away from the heat and depravity that clawed its way into his soul. He demands his way into Piper's life, intent on helping her pick up the pieces.
But even as the tentative fingers of a burgeoning friendship spread into something far deeper than either believed possible, duty calls for Caden to return to the battlefield. Fate brought them together-will war tear them apart? Or will Caden reclaim the sound of silence and remain with the woman who taught him love didn't die in the desert?

5 Stars! I loved this book. This story has everything that I think a Contemporary romance should have. The story pulled me in from the get go and left me wanting more. I so am not ready to say goodbye to Cade Lawless. I am calling dibs on him. I am sure others have said this too. He is a great character and I would love to have a Cade in my life. He is Alpha but is so much more than that. He is loyal, and will do whatever he can do to make the people in his life happy. He lost his best friend in war and is struggling with that. Piper is a great character. She is strong. She is someone I could see myself being friends with. A great friend and amazing mom. The friendship between Cade and Piper was strong and made to last. They become so important to each other. Cade with JT is swoon worthy. I highly recommend this book to readers who love a good romance story, with some angst. I love how the author brought PTSD and did it in the right way. It is an important topic and she did it with care. Well Done! Piper and Cade are two of my favorite characters and they will stay with me I volunteered to read a copy of this book. No form of payment was received
