There were no women left. He was sure of it. After the war, Cole Tanner was pretty damn certain they were all dead.
Hell, he and his strike team hadn’t seen one in years.
But then there she was. A woman. All alone, standing in the middle of the road. His road.
She looked so haunting. So hungry and dirty, and well… vulnerable. He was going to help her, really he was. And for a split second, he wondered just how she’d survived.
Then she leveled the gun at him… and he had his answer. Damsel in distress? Apparently not.
But that didn’t change things, not how Cole saw it. No, she still needed him, and his team. Same as they needed her. And Cole was nothing if not good at convincing people to follow him. Or at least, he used to be.
So he’d try his hand one more time, and hope like hell she didn’t pull that trigger.
Get your copy of Outlasting After now, because Cole’s time has always been running out.
Alone. Not a good thing for a female. Hannah trailed the group of men, hoping for…what? Andy told her never to get caught, never be alone with a male. He would hurt her. Andy was gone and she was starving. When she makes a mistake, Cole finds her. He protects her, feeds her, and cares for her. Can she trust him? What about the others? Hannah finds her groove within the compound of men. She helps where she can, but doesn’t remember a lot from her past. The men are divided when Cole takes Hannah as his own. She needs to do something to bring them back together. She has nothing to offer other than herself. What if there are other women out there?
Cole and Liam are childhood friends. They are brothers in arms, yet a small woman can tear them apart. Liam is NOT happy with Hannah showing up. Another mouth to feed. Yes, a female that they thought were all gone. Yet her she is, on Cole’s horse, in his cabin, and in his bed. Maybe it was jealousy? Maybe it was longing?
At the beginning of the book, I really liked Cole for taking care of Hannah. Halfway through the book, I shifted to liking Liam. The book and characters are enjoyable. I really like Cookie. Hannah’s mystery is a good tease.
