"I fought one war on the battlefield. Now I fight another in my mind."
Jay is always on the run - always looking for the next place to start a new life. But no matter how much he moves, he can't escape the painful memories that haunt him. As he settles into his latest job in the warehouse at a glass bottle factory, he finds himself the target of his co-workers' teasing. When he takes a stand against one of the bullies, a fight breaks out. His boss, a war vet named Reese, steps in, and Jay accidentally shoves him to the ground, revealing Reese's prosthetic leg. Jay's sure he's gonna lose his job, but he's blown away when he's given another shot.
Reese is annoyed by the new guy. Jay is reckless and temper-prone. Maybe Reese shouldn't have given him a second chance, but his attitude reminds him of his war buddy - a guy who he cared deeply for and who he lost under tragic circumstances. He just hopes Jay doesn't let him down.
When an accident in the factory triggers one of Reese's PTSD episodes, Jay returns the favor by being there for him and keeping anyone else from discovering the incident. Reese wants to move on and forget it ever happened, but Jay won't let it go. And as much as Reese tries to keep his distance, there's a heat - a passion - between them that he can't resist. It leads them to the bedroom again and again, but Reese quickly realizes they've ignited more than the sparks they create between the sheets. And despite the tough-guy façade Jay puts on, underneath there's a soul just as tortured and hurt as he is. He's starting to fall for Jay, but he knows there's a dark storm lurking in the back of his own mind - a storm that will return one day and destroy the beautiful connection they share.

Between These Sheets is a beautifully crafted emotional, intense and raw story of two men who lives a life in throes of their past and demons and how they form a soul-stirring bond that gives them the courage to find their happily ever after.
Layer by layer, this story unfolds and reaches the hard core of things.
This is a heart felt story. Reece dealing with PTSD had closed himself off from the world. Jay is angry for what the world had dealt him. They both have insecurities and issues but find themselves drawn to each other. Their story is a story of perseverance and nobody is to broken to love!
Loved every moment of it!
Reader, Writer, Lover of all things. Open minded and accepting, tolerant and understanding. All things are beautiful even the horrific truth
This book and the audio version of it are in a word INTENSE. The feels of the story draw you in and the power of Michael's performance kick that intensity up to an 11. This is the first solo book i've read of Devon's and I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to his work. The show of what it means to be really and truly in love with a broken and healing man is astounding. Watching it unfold is painful but the passion and honesty are worth the pain. Seeing these two broken men find a way despite all the horror they've endured to find faith in the love they feel is incredible and the journey, while not always pleasant is worth it for the pay off. I cannot recommend this book enough. It's amazing :)

I have never enjoyed so much m&m book as I did with this one! I fell in love with the characters they are so amazing
Reis made me feel everything it felt back then and now I was thrilled with his character it was absolutely enchanting ❤❤❤
I finished this story not because it was captivating and entertaining, but because I was curious enough to tough it out. The way it's read is just full of unnecessary aggression. It's probably partially caused by how it was written as well.
