Product description

Product Description

War almost destroyed them, but they survived thanks to their brother in arms Declan.

Coming home wasn't as sweet as they'd hoped, lives had moved on without them. For one it was all too much.

United by grief and angered by injustice the Wounded Heroes vow to always be there for each other.

Little do they know that's going to come sooner rather than later.

Declan is the first in Ava's new series; <B> Wounded heroes </b>

We first met Declan in Carnal Persuasion - Severed book 4 and he was very mysterious and intriguing and I immediately wanted to know more about him.

Jaded by war and the loss of one of his good friends, Declan is in a bad place, finding it hard to adjust back to civilian life and unable to sleep without having awful nightmares.

Hoping for a fresh start, He buys a bar in Severed (a place I totally want to live btw... all the men that live there are incredibly yummy!) but as we all know, things are never plain sailing in Severed.

Finding himself in the middle of a war between drug dealers and the local MC, Declan finds himself wading in and taking the MC's back.

Whilst dealing with this turf war, fighting his own demons and being unable to trust himself, the last thing Declan needs is the attraction he feels towards Holly, The niece of the MC's president but Holly is a determined girl and wont take no for an answer.

This book is brilliantly written and handles PTSD fantastically. The characters are well developed and the sex scenes are sooooo hot!

My only problem is that after reading this, I NEED more! I cant wait for Cam's book!

Declan, book 1 in the Wounded Heroes series by Ava Manello, follows ex Australian Special Air Regiment Corporal Declan Delaney. You may recall this character from Carnal Persuasion the 4th book by Ava and K T Fisher and I for one was ecstatic to get this book about this illusive, mysterious character. He is a damaged man, his time served for his country may have ended but his mind is still battling the demons left within as he struggles with life out of the service along with his fellow comrades.

He and his men faced horrendous ordeals whilst in service and each find their own way of coping. But, when events unfold beyond his control, as their Corporal he takes it as a failing and Declan realises he needs to take a road trip to decide what to do next with his life. He ends up in Severed and this is where the time frames overlap with Carnal Persuasion but are told from Declan's pov where he is trying to get a fresh start by running his own bar and renovating it. In Declan's life though danger and chaos follow him at every turn. When Severed MC problems land at his door he decides to help, his need to protect is inbuilt and engrained, so with his 'contacts' and background knowledge from the military he's the perfect man to help. The question is will it cost him more than he thought as he has the beginnings of something forming with Holly; The Prez's niece from Severed MC who knows full well about loss and the dangers of getting embroiled in MC issues.

Can Declan get the fresh start he needs to bring him back to himself after months of fighting his inner torment or will helping the Severed and Carnal MC with his brothers in arms be a step too close into familiar territory and cost them all dearly again??

5.0 out of 5 stars A second chance at life, while still haunted by mistakes of the past. 20 April 2015
By Alice's Book Wonderland- Alice Smith and Diana Hutchinson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ava Manello is one of my all time favorite authors. Her writing is unpredictable, full of risks, and always an emotional roller coaster of action and love. Declan, the first book in her new Wounded Heroes series has all of the great characteristics of her other books, and as a result is an absolutely fabulous read. Although this is a standalone book, it is a spin off series from the Severed MC Series that she co-writes with K. T. Fisher, one of my all time favorite reads!

Declan has seen more tragedy than anyone should have to see. He bravely served his country overseas. When he returns home, he is searching for direction and a way to start life over. Buying a bar and moving away from the only family he has left, leads him to Severed, Australia.

Holly has been staying with the Severed MC since the untimely deaths of her brother and best friend. She wants to gain her independence, and when she hears the new bar in town is hiring, she applies for a job. When sparks start to fly between her and the new owner, she is unsure how to handle it.

This book is a definite must read and is extremely HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 30 March 2015

This book hit home with me because I have seen the loss of a hero and how his friends suffered with Post Traumatic Stress who also turned to drugs when they buried their friend. Declan caught my heart in Severed MC series and I am happy to say Ava did him justice in this book. Her detail in in writing was impeccable when she wrote of the symptoms and he'll most suffer with PTS. Declan meets Holly who has also suffered a devastating loss (from the SEVERED MC SERIES) and she can see that Declan was broken, but his eyes had a light of hope and life still left in them and Holly would do anything to keep that light shinning. Demons in the mind are the hardest to fight, can they both handle the challenge ?.....Can't wait for Cam's story and more of Declan and Holly...and of course the Severed MC Crew

I loved this book. It was beautifully written with so many emotions but realistic at the same time. I loved the Severed MC series and this book was an excellent introduction to this new series. I cannot wait to read more books from this author.

This was a good book about struggles and real life issues most are dealing with today. I loved all of it and fell in love with the characters. It was easy to get lost in this story and hold on tight. Can't wait to read the next one

I know a lot of former military that have suffered in the same way as Declan. It's a good look at in from their prospective. Great job
