This book needs to be read after you read Ethan's Promise. Now that I've got that out of the way, I really, really wanted more from this book than I got. After Celine's rescue, Aaron's hot and cold got aggravating after a while. This is more of a novella so it moves kind of quick. The main story between the two is mentioned in the first book so this is just a continuation of what we already know about the two. The story as is, is well written and because I read Ethan's Promise, I knew exactly why what was happening happened. The only real fault that really aggravated me was the book just kind of ends. The buildup to the last page makes it look like more is going to be said and done but it just ends.
Positives for me: Celine is pretty kickass for being a civilian in a militaryesque setting. She bounces back from her kidnapping, decides to let go of her excess baggage and let Aaron in. Aaron is obviously a very tough dude. He's a gentlemen but his inability to let go of his guilt is what almost destroys them.
All in all a good, quick novella. I'm anxiously awaiting what is going to happen in the next book because this cliffy left me throwing my kindle at the wall (Then I had to pick it up, kiss it and pray it still worked because lord knows I cannot purchase my 4th kindle or my husband will probably divorce me).
