*Thank you to the author for providing me with an eARC in exchange for a honest review.
Haylee Jordan is no stranger to heartbreak. Growing up, she quickly learned to fend for herself, and after a hellish night in high school, she knows the only way to keep her heart safe is to keep everybody else out.
Ryan Porter considers himself married to the military. After losing his father and brother at a young age and witnessing the subsequent downfall of his mother, Ryan has sworn off any semblance of love.
After Ryan helps Haylee out of a sticky situation, the two find themselves growing closer, but with Ryan’s impending deployment and Haylee’s trust issues, they vow to never let it become something more.
However, Ryan quickly finds himself falling for Haylee, and Haylee is unable to deny that Ryan makes her happier than she’s been in a long time. Will the two of them be able to overcome their pasts and open their hearts? Or will they always be determined to keep everyone at a safe distance?
My first Megan Green and military romance novel is proving to be rather amazing!
Not to mention extremely heart-breaking, devastating and just plain sad but sweet!
Haylee Jordan was strong enough to survive her nightmares…yet that doesn’t mean that she would be free from them. Seeing Haylee suffering from the remnants of her nightmare makes me really sad and extremely pissed off with the people who did that to her.
(Like I will-kick-their-asses-if-I-ever-get-a-hold-of-them kind of pissed, and yes, THEY BETTER RUN!)
Ryan Porter is such a sweet guy. I swear, there’s no other people out there who can be as sweet, as patient, as gentle and SELFLESS as Ryan!
HIS. SELFLESSNESS. HER. SUFFERING.
TOO. MUCH. FEELS.
Ryan and Haylee stays at a safe distance with each other. They feel for each other but neither of them dares to take that one step. It’s so sad and my heart goes out to them.
(Okay…does ‘GET TOGETHER ALREADY AND STOP MAKING ME CRY’ consider sad?)
Safe distance is a well-written novel that will make you cry and smile at the sweetness of love!
Highly recommended for readers to prepare themselves for an emotional ride!
