When Jacob “Dax” Daxton returns home from war, he has to fight a new battle – the one to find his place in the world. The man who normally has a clear path to victory surrounded by brothers in combat is suddenly lost and alone. After meeting Beckett Ridge, a bearded tattoo artist, Dax’s journey begins winding down an unexpected path.
Still reeling from events that shook his foundation, Beck has never been part of anything meaningful. Now faced with responsibilities foreign and daunting, Dax’s broken spirit mends Beck in ways he never even knew he was destroyed.
As both struggle to find balance, they are healed by the comfort they find in one other. On the other side of chaos, they hope to find themselves On Solid Ground.
Dax is a young Army vet who is suffering from PTSD. While trying to adjust to life post military and frankly trying to find himself, he meets Beck a tattoo artist with his own set of demons and struggles.
The first 40% was amazing, sweet and funny. I felt Dax and Beck's chemistry and friendship building and was totally immersed in their story.
Unfortunately, for me, that's when things got a little too far fetched, sometimes silly and frankly it felt like every tragedy/obstacle known to man was thrown in.
I am so torn about how to rate this book, so I'll just leave you with... emotional subjects, steamy sex and two hot men!
