When Ethan Brant was shot, he found himself dealing with severe PTSD and unable to do his job as a police officer any longer. With the aid of Detective Shawn Greyson, the man who saved his life, Ethan not only finds himself again but discovers love as well.
Shawn’s life growing up was less than ideal, however, he overcame that to become who he is today. That doesn’t mean he isn’t missing something in his life. What Shawn hadn’t realized, upon first meeting, was that Ethan could give him all that and more.
One bullet changed both their lives.
This book was, if I had to sum it up in 1 word….frustrating. It started out ok. I was engaged and interested in the story but then it got strange. This is very disjointed. The story jumps around all over the place and that wouldn’t necessary be a bad thing if it flowed better. But this story doesn’t flow well and the characters connection was in my opinion lukewarm at best. I do want to point out that I think this author has potential like I mentioned the start isn’t terrible but particular story just didn’t work for me.
Ethan Brant thought he had his whole life figured out until a bullet from a reckless cop shatters that dream. Shackled with debilitating PTSD has left Ethan just a shell of his former self. The only thing that is able to pull him out is his connection to his savior, Detective Shawn Grayson.
Ethan and Shawn start spending a lot of time together and what starts as friendship blossoms into love. Shawn’s calm personality soothes Ethan’s damaged psyche and the two become inseparable.
This is pretty low angst and very low steam and also no on page sex. The passion is pretty much cut to black which doesn’t help the story.
I think the overall concept of One Bullet was interesting just the execution needed a little work.
