Eehhh
Hers to Heal - Vonnie Davis Reece “Steelhead” Browning has been at the Eagle Ridge Ranch, trying to recover from his severe PTSD. Gina Wilson is his physical therapist. She drives him absolutely nuts, in both a good way and a bad way. When he meets her too smart 6 year old, his defenses start to tumble down. After reading the first book in this series, I couldn’t wait for the second, so I dove right into this one. However, with this book, it was kind of hit and miss. It started out really good, but towards the end, not so much. Unfortunately, that tends to happen for me with this author. Still a 3 star read and would still recommend it. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Great Story and Characters
Her Survivor: A Black Eagle Ops Novel - Vonnie Davis When Dustin “Dust” Frank was released from a military hospital after a horrible attack, he heads to his former commander’s ranch in Texas, the Eagle Ridge Ranch. As soon as he gets to town, he meets Kelcee Todd and fireworks explode, in the wrong way. This book was pretty good. I really liked Dusty’s character. I thought the author did a good job of the way he dealt with his PTSD. I also liked Kelcee a lot. I liked watching how she slowly started to trust Dusty with everything she was dealing with. I highly recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Hers to Heal - Vonnie Davis
I have to start off by saying that I did enjoy the chemistry between the two main characters, Reece and Gina) but I loved Piper...what a little spitfire that kid was. Piper had no filter when it came to what she said, in true kid fashion, and there were times that I just couldn't help but shake my head while saying "kids" out loud. Now back to Gina and Reece, Reece is suffering from severe PTSD now that he has been rescued from the terrorists that held him captive, he also lost an arm and that is how he met Gina, she is his physical therapist determined to get him to use his prosthetic as if it was still his original arm.
 
Reece was so far into his own head that he never spoke to anyone, actually when I read the books blurb I thought he might be mute but that wasn't the case at all, he just needed a reason to start speaking again and Piper he found that reason. I absolutely loved the bond that Reece and Piper had and when a series of events unfold I understand why he did what he did. I am not going to let on about what happened but I will say that if I was in his shoes towards the end of the book I would have done the same thing.

Hers to Heal
Hers to Heal - Vonnie Davis I do realize that in a novel people need to heal fairly quickly so that the story can go forward. However, it is so misleading to portray PTSD as being "cured" or even eased in just one or two sessions with a counselor. PTSD is something that effects soldiers for years, for a lifetime, unto death. While counseling can help those suffering with PTSD, often the first major hurdle is to get the patient to agree that he/she needs treatment, that they have anything that needs treating. Those with PTSD will often tell you that they are fine, there is nothing wrong with them, they are coping just fine and readapting to civilian life just fine.

To see PTSD handled as it was in this book is grossly misleading and belittles what those who suffer with it must go through to return to some sort of regular life following combat with or without imprisonment or military sexual trauma. When you take on such a subject, you should be ready to deal with it properly or leave it alone. The tone of this book was in no way dark enough to portray the subject properly and so came off as being a lightweight overall.

I was provided a digital copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I am not being compensated in any way. All opinions are fully my own.
