Author: Kaylea Cross
Series: Crimson Point #1
Special Forces Captain Beckett Hollister has left the military to care for his father who has been diagnosed with cancer. Beckett is struggling with adjusting to civilian life, as well as dealing with what he witnessed and done during the war. Things get a little easier when he finally gives into his feelings for Sierra Buchanan, his best friends sister.
I picked this up because I saw a fellow reviewer loved it. I am so glad I listened to my instinct and read it. I couldn’t put this book down. It starts a little slow but once the story got going it really picked up. I loved how this wasn’t an intense suspense book, which hasn’t been common for me, because it really allowed for more focus on Beckett and Sierra and the death of his father. (The suspense elements don’t really come into play until close to the end.)
I really loved Sierra. She was sweet, kind, and really would do anything for her friends or family. She has had a crush on Beckett for years but never though he cared for her since he never said anything and has been avoiding her. After taking a leap of faith she admits her feelings to him and finds he feels the same. After some resistance he realizes that life is better with her in it, especially once his father’s health starts declining quickly. Beckett leans on her to get through this trying time and really opens up about how he is feeling. I loved how emotional this book was, especially since Beckett is a very strong and controlled hero who doesn’t really show his emotions very much. But when he does man was it very impactful.
We got a lot of information about their family and friends in this book as well. Some people may not love this but I do. I love that we get more about the friends/family because it really makes me want to know more about those characters and continue the series. I will be continuing this series in the future and hopefully I will enjoy those books as well.
