Rezension zu "Here with Me (The Archer Brothers) (Volume 1) by Heidi McLaughlin (2014-10-06)" von Heidi McLaughlin
Here With Me is the first book in the Archer Brothers series and not a standalone. The story is not concluded and will continue on in book 2 Choose Me.
Ryley and Evan are it for each other. They have that soul mate love and had a life planned out but one military operation changes everything for them. With Evan presumably dead, Ryley painstakingly moves on with her life and though it was unexpected, she gradually fell in love with Nate, her best friend and Evan’s twin.
This is where the intriguing military aspect kicks in. Evan thought it’d be a quick, simple operation but as days, months, and eventually years pass by he’s given no leeway to return home even though he and the rest of his team accomplished the goal. On top of that, families and friends are told that they all died just months after they leave so their return 6 years later is met with confusion, denial, and bitterness.
Here with Me is both heartbreaking and beautiful. The stage is set for lives to be changed forever. The scenario these characters were placed in challenges what we think is right and wrong. It questions commitment in times of war and peace. What is more important- loyalty or love? Here with Me is set in the present time but the past is revealed piece by piece as the story progresses.
