Cord’s Chance (Men of Mercy #7)(2018)(249lk)
Author: Lindsay Cross
He thought he was done. His career as a special forces sniper was over. He’d lost his leg and his dignity in that ambush. Now, after nearly a year of rehab, he was fighting the toughest battle in his life: prove he was still worthy to serve.
Contract with a security firm to pull protection for a rancher by the name of Sam Bishop. If he succeeded in routing out the bad guy, Cord would be back on the team.
He’d be able to get the hell away from all the counselors and therapists trying to tell him how to come to grips with his PTSD and missing limb. There were no emotions and feelings in west Texas, just rough necks and grit. Exactly what he needed.
Sam’s real name is Samantha and she’s not a codgy old man – she’s the one girl from Cord’s past he never got over. He thought he’d lost his chance with her, and now that he wasn’t a whole man, he didn’t deserve her.
Samantha is determined to show Cord he’s everything she ever wanted. Her biggest battle isn’t the stalker threatening her life: it’s making Cord see he’s worthy of her love and so much more.
My opinion of the book.
Oh, I loved the book so much that I forgot to go sleep. Just keep reading and reading it. Story was about Cord and Samantha. I am glad that they get together. Perfect couple and so good reading that I hope someday I have chance to read more books in this series. I hope that author is writing more stories. She is so good at it. This was a great story about healing and second chances, with some suspense added in. Cord and Samantha were good friends in high school, but Samantha always had a crush on him. Cord didn’t think he was good enough for Samantha, so he kept her friend zoned and kept his feelings hidden. There second chance happens several years later when after being injured, Cord is assigned to protect Samantha from a stalker. Why he did it and when they come back together, you my friends have to read it. I garantee that you don,t even notice when book is over. I loved it and I am happy to read it.
