Book Review: Capturing Peace

Capturing Peace (Sharing You 0.5) by Molly McAdams: Coen Steele has spent the last five years serving his country. Now that he's back, he's finally ready to leave behind the chaos of the battlefield and pursue his lifelong dream. What he wasn't expecting was the feisty sister of one of his battle buddies—who has made it obvious that she wants nothing to do with him—to intrigue him in a way no woman has before.

Reagan Hudson's life changed in the blink of an eye six years ago when she found out she was pregnant and on her own. Since then, Reagan has vowed never to let another man into her life so that no one can walk out on her, or her son, again. But the more she runs into her brother's hot and mysterious friend, the more he sparks something in her that she promised herself she wouldn't feel again.

Can two people with everything to lose allow themselves to finally capture the love they both deserve?

Rosie's thoughts: I have never been let down by any of Molly McAdam's books and Capturing Peace is certainly no exception. This is a novella but, in my mind, was long enough to capture the emotions of both Coen and Reagan. Coen had just finished his military service where he had served alongside Reagan's brother Keegan. He suffers from PTSD after seeing dreadfull things whilst serving. Reagan is a single Mom working hard to bring up her son Parker who is just the "coolest" 6 year old ever! They meet but don't initially hit it off. The author makes sure that they have their fair share of angst an upset and it is this uncertainty which make the characters seem real. The story is told from both points of view. This is a style I think is suited to a novella as it allows us a deeper insight without having to wait for another installment. Overall I give this book 4 hearts and am looking forward to the next in the series.
