14925664_1731263580531240_5724382202732449489_nTaylor Blackhawk has been home for two years. For two years he’s fought the demons that followed him. Until now he could do it alone. Something set a trigger that has his nights of hell running wild and disrupting his already turbulent sleep. PTSD is getting the best of Taylor but not for long because in Brotherhood you are never alone. His Brothers stand up and fight with him and for him. Badass doesn’t just run deep in the Princes, it holds on too. 
There is no old lady war in Taylor’s book. The war here is Taylor’s fight to keep hold onto reality, Beth and his Brothers. Through a bumpy ride, Taylor finds his happy—in himself, with Beth and in Brotherhood with the Princes.


Sniper is not only the story of Taylor and Beth falling in love, it’s also a story about the love of a family who refuses to let go of one of their own and is determined to help him fight any battle, even if he’s fighting himself. I’ve been waiting for Taylor’s story for a long time. From the first time, e appeared in Cloud’s book he tugged at my heartstrings He went from being an adolescent boy no one wanted to a beloved son and brother that many looked up to. After honorably serving his country as a Navy Seal, he came home with lots of medals but also with PTSD after a heartbreaking incident during a battle.Every time a brother finds a woman the MC finds themselves at war. Although there was lots of action in Sniper with the obligatory gunfights and kidnappings, the actual war fought was Taylor and his family fighting against his PTSD. With Beth, he had the added worry of possibly harming her during a flashback.

I loved Taylor. He was everything I adore in a book boyfriend. Alpha to his core, but a wounded warrior and unbelievably strong. He was loyal and heart-meltingly loving towards his family, especially Mucimi, Brantley’s toddler son. Beth was the perfect heroine for Taylor. She had an open mind and was completely patient and understanding with everything he and his crazy family threw at her.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that Sniper didn’t make light of PTSD by making it seemingly miraculously easy for Taylor to overcome. Even with all the freaky healing abilities of his brothers and cousins, there was no simple fix for him. He had to make the decision to take the steps to learn how to deal with his triggers so he could lead a long, normal life. The importance of family and friends to the healing process was showcased as was the fact that so many of our military do not receive the assistance they deserve.

Although Taylor’s journey to overcome his PTSD is the main theme of the book, there is lots of action including gunfights and kidnapping attempts to keep things interesting. The antics of both the MC and Princes family kept me smiling, and Taylor and Beth had plenty of sexy times to keep the heat level where I like it – up high. There were some editing issues, but I expect these with L. Ann Marie’s books. Regardless of the editing problems, I read Sniper all the way through in one sitting.
