Two men with painful, complicated pasts who have shut themselves down from ever loving again. Complete opposites of one another, one raised in a strict military household, who grew up with the sole purpose of becoming a soldier and defending his country, only to have that cut short by an IED; and the other raised in the rodeo, small town and ranch life his safe haven; and their chance meeting.
How the two of them end up in some small town diner can only be credited to divine intervention. But are both men too damaged? They say God works in mysterious ways. Well, he certainly had his hands full when he chose these two for saving.
Is it too late?
Where to begin with this review. I could get long and drawn out over all parts that was this story but I feel that would make this a never ending review. I don’t want to do that.
The shock of this book was that it’s broken down into 3 parts. Essentially it’s 3 novellas making up one novel. Part one is Jaime’s story which is heart shattering. He has a rough, gritty, brutal life inside and outside the military. Never a happy moment in it if I’m being honest. This was a bit devastating and it made be almost depressed.
Part two is Chris’s story. His life is much happier. Great folks who love and support him. He meets a great guy, Ben, things seem to be going great. Then tragedy and his life starts to get sad too. His story flow is very realistic for an everyday person's pov. I could relate with Chris's life in a sense.
Part three is Jaime and Chris’ story. The YAY and happily ever after. They save each other, hence the title Resurrection. Now, it makes sense to me.
So, here’s the thing. Though I loved Jaime and Chris’s stories I found it made me impatient. I became fidgety. But, it’s vital to read Jaime and Chris’s lives. I didn't realize it right away. Individually, they have one heck of a story to tell. And you may be all, "Uhg, I want them together already." Just hold your horses. The author is developing the characters for YOU to have a relationship with.
I encourage you not to give up on this book. When these two are put together you are totally overcome with all the feelings because you've already spent so much time with these guys. When you put the parts together you see why the author wrote it the way that she did.
It’s very emotional and heartbreaking…. Until it’s not. There’s a happily ever after for these boys you just have to stick with it.
