Publisher's Summary

In Friendly Fire, after a roadside bomb ends his career in the Marines, Logan Wilde struggles to put his life back together, taking a job as a sheriff in a small Idaho town. He expects a quiet, peaceful life that will bore him to tears. Until he walks through the door of Julia Cooper's cafe.  

From the moment the new sheriff walks into Julia's cafe, she fights the attraction from the new sheriff, a man she recognizes is ex-military and has baggage that comes along with it. Even though she's never felt this way for another man, Julia isn't willing to take a chance with Logan. No, she's convinced herself she needs stability, someone average, someone who has never handled a gun.

Except when her daughter disappears, it's Logan who's there for her, it's Logan she turns to, and Logan who turns the town upside down searching for her.  

But what Logan realizes is the disappearance of her daughter may not be as it seems, and while Julia waits on the sidelines, she wonders if she'll ever be able to trust again and open her heart and take a chance on love.

A Wonderful Listen!!

I just loved this story, the only thing that I would have changed/added would have been the narrator and have had both a male and a female reading it would have been alittle more expressive. But i love Lorhainne Eckhart books anyways and being able to listen to the story unfold while working is a nice touch!

Another engaging story in the series

Once again, the author gives us a touching story with some suspense, and romance.
Logan Wilde, former Marine, was injured in a roadside bomb and is still struggling with some PTSD.
Now he is the new sheriff in a small town. His first day brings him face to face with Julia Cooper, the owner of the local cafe.
Julia is divorced , with a set of twin girls and a woman who, because of her Dad experienced the effects of a Marine coming back from the war. But the attraction is there and when someone takes one of the twins, she turns to Logan for help.
It’s a fast paced, well developed story with complex characters.
Kudos to the author for reminding us of the effects combat has on the brave men and women who fight so that we can enjoy freedom. As well as a reminder that as a nation, we need to do more for them upon their return.
Another very good story in this series.

Great story

Logan and Julia have a wonderful chemistry. Logan Is the new sheriff in town and Julia owns a diner. Upon meeting they have a somewhat instant attraction. Though Logan had issues from his time in war and Julia leary because her dad had same issues, these are handled in a believable and heartfelt manner. When her daughter is kidnapped Logan is the one person she can count on.

This was a good story.

I enjoyed this book very much – in spite of the only adequate narration. This is the first audio I've listened to by Daniel James Lewis. I do hope that he's new to audiobook narration (I only found 5 books by him on Audible.com.) Things that wouldn't be bothersome to me if I were reading a book (like misspelling, wrong words, phrasing) I found distracting in this audiobook. Examples are the pronunciation of "scaring" as "scarring," "mischief" as "mis chief." When I'm engrossed in the story and have something like those examples hit my ears it's just plain jarring. There was also one place where an entire paragraph was repeated (that might not be the narrator's fault).

Authors – it's important to make sure that your audiobooks are proofed for errors (if you are in control of the audio and not some publisher) just as you would make sure your printed books are proofed.

So, for the story… this is a rather short book so there's not a lot of time for character development, still the author does a good job of letting us know who the main characters are and what makes them tick. She also did a good job of keeping me guessing who the bad guy was by throwing a twist into the story.

While this is book two of The Wilde Brothers series it works fine as a standalone. I haven't read book one and I don't feel like I missed anything. But after reading Friendly Fire I am interested in reading the other books in this series.

While I own almost all of Lorhainne Eckhart's books (I'm a one-click addict - LOL) this is only the second book of hers that I've read and now I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.
