Genre: Adult, Romance

From Goodreads:
As a wildlife rehabilitator in Southeast Louisiana, Pamela Wells has dealt with her fair share of wild animals, but her reclusive life is forever changed when she meets an elusive former soldier named Daniel Phillips. Sent to Pamela’s wildlife sanctuary as part of his parole requirements, Daniel and Pamela quickly clash until Daniel’s troubled past unexpectedly comes to light. After serving in Iraq, Daniel suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. Pamela tries to help ease his condition by introducing him to the healing power of animals. Daniel begins to find peace, and an unexpected kindred spirit in Pamela. Fearing one day she will be forced to give up her beloved sanctuary, Pamela confides in Daniel about her debilitating health. United by their misfortunes, the relationship turns romantic.

My Thoughts:
This is one of those books where you see how broken both of the main characters.  The author has helped the reader understand how the main characters got that way.  Shoved together  the animals and their relationship help them both begin to heal.  When Daniel leaves, Pamela is forced to once again seek help from her ex-husband.  Can you say controlling?  He is the type of character you love to hate.  You can’t read this book without hoping that he will get his.  Want to know if he does?  Read the book.
