Warrior by Nicole Blanchard
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nicole Blanchard comes a second chance military romantic suspense! One night with a hero. It was only supposed to be a fling with my brother’s best friend. The same man I’ve loved since he gave me my first kiss. I knew he was about to leave for a year, but I couldn’t let him go without showing him how I felt. One lie that could tear us apart. Our paths crossed again, but we’re both different people. I should have told him the truth, but I couldn’t. Not when he ignored every message I ever sent. He’s no longer the man I once knew. He’s warring with his own demons, against silence threatening to swallow him, and I know if he ever learns the truth, he will never forgive me. One love that will have to save us. When all I hold dear is threatened, I have only one way to repair the damage. I have to trust the man I lied to. The man I never got the chance to make a life with. The only man who could save what we created together. Warrior takes place in the First to Fight series, but may be read as a standalone.
