I thought it was forever.

I knew it would be hard. Deployments, danger, separation. I thought distance would be our biggest obstacle.

It wasn't.

And I would rather he hate me than learn the truth.

But my lies were about to be aired for all to see. Because the past I tried so hard to forget is back and there was only one way I could survive.

I had to fight back.

Despite the risks I was drawn to him. More than anything I wanted a second chance, but I knew when he learned what happened to me nothing would stop him from trying to seek revenge.

My Review

Survivor is book two in the First to Fight series by Author Nicole Blanchard. It is a second chance romance, with an added military mix and an edge of suspense.

“There are three things I love the most in this world, and two of them I can probably live without. The other smiles up at me.”

Sofie can be risk-taker with everything but her heart. She gave that away a long time ago, and has been metaphorically living without it ever since. Jack has loved Sofie since they were young. He knew they would always be together, until she walked away. Years later, unanswered questions remain and Jack is ready for the answers.

Told in dual points of view, Survivor was a fast, hot, and suspenseful read. There are times when an opening scene is the bait and hook for me as a reader, catching me by surprise and irrevocably drawing me in. Survivor definitely did this, making my mind swirl with questions and activating my salivary glands with a tempting taste for what was to come. When Sofie was around, Jack was always a man starved for her. It was what activated the air of expectancy around them. Sofie had the spark that, when let aloft in the air, became the catalyst for their fiery passion. Just as fierce as their spark was the secrets the were present between them. It was with heartache and hurt that I read their story, feeling every past and present point of joy, lust, pain, and abandonment. If ever there were two characters that had been meant to share this life, it was them. The obstacles were many, and they were hard fought to overcome. At so many turns, unexpected twists were introduced, causing the air to be sucked out the room, leaving a ripple of aftershocks in their wake. It was all-consuming and pushed me to find the answers to what had been the end of a great love. Author Nicole Blanchard had a daunting task of bringing the scattered pieces of these characters’ worlds together, and making a complete picture. But, she did it. The result being a unique story of truth and healing, a rejoining of souls lost to circumstances. It was a cherished and remarkable escape.

“No regrets.”
