Live By The Team - Cindy Skaggs (Team Fear #1)

Published Date: April 19, 2016
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: Military trained, medically enhanced, designed to kill.

They created a monster. Trained by the Army, enhanced by medical experimentation, and tested in war. What happens to the creature when the war ends and the man awakens? 

SSgt. Ryder was born, bred, and enhanced as a warrior, but when he returns home to his new wife—exiled from the army along with the rest of his disgraced team—he faces mounting anger and paranoia. When a fellow soldier does the unthinkable, Ryder disappears to protect his wife, but his departure leaves a vacuum filled with danger. Can he save her or will he lose himself to the beast and destroy what matters most?

Abandoned most of her life, Lauren Ryder married thinking she had finally found stability, until her new husband disappeared. He returns altered and secretive. Can she forgive him for crushing her dreams of picket fences and happily ever after? Will she survive what he has become? 

This book told an absolutely beautiful tale. I fell in love with the story. Maybe it is because I love military romances but this one took the medal for making me love this even more. Although, I didn't understand the full background of the story and it was written rather confusing on the different perspectives and point of views. 

Live By The Team by Cindy Skaggs was an interesting take on the topic of PTSD and how it can really ruin some people. It told the story of being a team in and out of the field operations. You stand by your teammates regardless of how hard it is and how much it triggers. 

I really don't know how I felt about the main girl Lauren and the plot line was rather repetitive throughout. So the book is a 3.2 out of 5 stars, sadly. Although I loved how the mixture of PTSD was played into the book, I felt that it was rather shortsighted of what actually happens. Of course, this book was more focused on romance than the action of it all. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
