Wounded Warrior by Suz deMello

This is the second book that I have read from Suz deMello. I am pretty much certain that I have posted last year a review for Lord Devere’s Ward.

I did enjoy that book very much and I was really touched when the opportunity to read and review Wounded Warrior happened.

I have to say that I was quite pleased to go from a Regency to a Contemporary romance and I was curious to see how that change of era would work out. I may be mistaken but I think most authors stick to their genre or period of choice and rarely stray. I could be wrong of course, but I can tell you right now that Suz did an amazing job with Wounded Warrior!

I read it in one go and could not put it down! I was hooked as soon as I saw how the 2 main characters Fisher and Valerie meet! It was so funny and unforgettable.

I found both characters to be truly lovely and my heart went out straight to Fisher, out of the 2 he was the one with the more complex and painful background. At the same time, Valerie was just plain wonderful, I think we need more characters like her as we go. She was smart, funny, independent and goes for what she wants.

I admire a woman with a plan!

Put those two in a room together and I was the one in a need of a cold shower! I am telling you. The chemistry was there and I was living for it.

In addition to Valerie and Fisher, we have a whole slew of truly entertaining people, by that I mean the residents of Takinsha Island and I loved them. I would not mind revisiting some and I would love to see some of them get some happy endings.

The main one I have in mind is Nina but then, there is also Brent that I liked very much and would love to see them both get a happy ending!

What I am trying to say, is that I am fully for revisiting Takinsha Island from time to time with new books (just my 2 cents!).

As you can see, I really enjoyed Wounded Warrior and got really attached to everyone in the book. I am not going to go into details and spoil it for you, but I will tell you that Fisher is suffering from war-related PTSD. Though there is nothing truly horribly graphic, just be aware, that there are a couple of scenes that could be difficult.

Frankly, the book was beautifully written, the characters were outstanding and as I mentioned before, I would love to revisit the island again and get to know other inhabitants better.

I am going to be very highly recommending Wounded Warrior to you all, and I hope you love it as much as I did!
