Am I a good man? A monster? A hero?
Maybe I’m nothing. Maybe the biggest piece of me died the day I decided to live.
I gave up on redemption.
Until I found her. A light in all my darkness.
My little bird.
I don’t want to love her.
But maybe I have no choice.
One look, one touch, one taste, and I’m gone.
Lost in her light.
I’m broken in all the wrong places.
Wren sees my flaws and calls them beautiful.
Is that it?
In the end…are we all beautifully broken?
[I received a digital arc for an honest review]
On His Six by Patricia D. Eddy is a dark and gritty story. The story is gut-wrenching and intense right from the start and doesn’t stop. On His Six is a book you won’t be able to put down once you start.
Ryker’s life hasn’t been the same since he barely returned home from being a prisoner of war. He is greatly damaged both on the surface and inside. He feels he is undeserving of friendship and love. Wren is a brilliant hacker who lives off coffee suffers from anxiety attacks that seem to control her life. When he literally runs into Wren, he decides to help her when no one else will. Her mission to fulfill her brother’s last wish includes the Russian mob so things get dangerous real quick.
Ryker and Wren’s story is intense, nerve wrecking, raw and beautiful. They are both broken souls who give each other hope and peace from their demons. They steady each other and understand each other like no one else ever has.
This is my first Patricia D. Eddy book and it will not be my last. I kind of want to go back and read the other two books of hers set in this world and I’ll be keeping an eye out for the next one.
“This girl -woman- does something to me I don’t like. I can’t get enough of her. She’s innocent, but not. Sweet, but not. All contradictions and mysteries I’d love to solve. “
“I could kiss this man every day for the next month and it wouldn’t be enough. I shouldn’t need him. Shouldn’t want him. There’s a darkness inside him i fear will consume him one day. But I can’t help myself. He’s broken in all the wrong ways . Perfect in all the right ones. “
