Retired Navy SEAL Alex Rojas is putting his life back together, one piece at a time. Being a single dad to his young daughter and working at Hope's Crossing Kennels to help rehab a former guard dog, he struggles every day to control his PTSD. But when Elisa Hall shows up, on the run and way too cautious, she unleashes his every protective instinct. 

Elisa's past never stays in her rearview mirror for long, and she refuses to put anyone else in danger. But with Alex guarding her so fiercely yet looking at her so tenderly, she's never felt safer . . . or more terrified that the secrets she keeps could put countless people in grave peril. The only way for both to fully escape their demons will take the ultimate act of courage: letting go and learning to trust each other.


Ultimate Courage is book 2 in the True Heroes series and yet is a complete stand alone. The characters from book 1 are in this book and yet this author has managed to keep this from being very spoilerish if you are coming into the series out of order. This book has Alex, a very broken man who is trying hide how bad his PTSD is from his daughter. Then Elisa shows up and she is a calming breeze that settles his jumping nerves. Only she is bringing a load of trouble with her. Alex will have to use all his skills to keep her safe. 

The book was fantastic. The second book was just a little better than the first and I didn't think that was possible and now I am just bouncing to see how amazing the next book will be. The characters are complex making them feel like real people, real situations and real danger. Alex's struggle with PTSD was well written and Elisa's growth was beautiful. I loved Souze. He didn't play as big a part in this book as Atlas did in the first book but he played a very important role. I very highly recommend this book any and all who love a great romance with suspense to keep it exciting!
My rating system is different than Amazon where this is a 5☆. See rating chart on the right.
