When their pasts collide, will they survive the future?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Incredible story! 5 Stars to Orion by by author Raeah Wilding.
Just wow! This book had everything! Definitely all the feels. My emotions ranged from compassion to sadness, to fear and worry to relief. I smiled and cried. There were moments (many) that I felt my stomach drop to my feet. Was this book strictly romance? No! While it was about finding and trusting in love, it was also about healing and resolution. There was violence and suspense. God, I could just go on and on but I don’t want to give away any details so you can enjoy this book on your own.
Orion and Hope (Lillian)
I’ll be brief, as I mentioned I don’t want to spoil any of this heartwarming book for you. Orion is former military as is his faithful and loving canine companion Zeus. Both Zeus and Orion served several tours together in Afghanistan. Things happened there that shape this story. There was violence and cruelty resulting in the continuing emotional suffering that Orion and Zeus are suffering with. I’ll say it right now…my heart broke over and over for them. Both of them!
Orion is not ready for society so he is living off the grid in a remote area of Alaska. While out one day, he and Zeus end up having to save a women from an avalanche. Orion takes her home and has to care for her himself because they are so far from any town. As the author mentions in the blurb, the woman, Hope, has lost her memory. What follows is an amazing story of how these two people found trust and friendship with each other. And ultimately love and healing. Their journey is not easy. There is trouble brewing and danger lurking. Both Orion and Hope will soon see how meant to be they were. Sorry I can’t say more. This story was a roller coaster of emotion. And I truly loved every minute of it. I was so happy with how things turned out.
This author was a first-time read for me. I definitely will be reading more of her work.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
