ePub Ê Fighting Redemption î Kate McCarthy To join the Australian Army After years of training he becomes an elite SAS soldier and deploys to the Afghanistan war His patrol undertakes the most dangerous missions a soldier can face But no matter how far he runs or how hard he fights his need for Finlay won’t let goReturning home after six years one look is all it takes to know he can’t live without her But sometimes love isn’t en 25 3 starsAbout 7 months ago I received a Christmas present an ebook of Fighting Redemption emailed to me from my mom who read and loved it after seeing it on ’s recommendation list Our tastes almost never converge so seeing her love a military romance really brought this book to my attention It was also impossible to ignore all the reviews and status updates about the book – almost everyone who did read it ugly cried and said it was a top favorite of the year I told myself right then and there that I would wait at least half a year to read it I didn’t want the hype and the bandwagon effect to cloud my reading experience So yeah this book scared the crap out of me But there was never a doubt in my mind that YES this is the kind of story that I wanted to read So now that I’ve finished the book I’m mulling it over in my head It took me almost 3 days to read and I’ve DNFed twice before picking it up again Also cried twice The very first thing I noted was that Kate McCarthy is an extremely talented writer I’ll admit she is very brilliant with her words so it’s easy to get lost in the wave of emotions her writing evokes especially when it came to the numerous obstacles keeping Fin and Ryan from each other Exceptnow that I think about it I never understood their love for each other in the first place For me they go from children growing up together having the occasional conversationinteraction hit puberty and had crushes on each other NEITHER voiced their feelings then Ryan went off to war and Fin got herself a boyfriend Now 6 years later they see each other and immediately start professing ‘I’ll die for you’ love  Where’d that come from So right off the bat that was a big disconnect for meIt doesn’t matter that Fin knew she had feelings for Ryan Ryan knew he had feelings for Fin and I knew they both had feelings for each other They never gave weight to that “love” never voiced it until it was too late Another thing was the third person POV I’m usually not too picky about the POVs but for some reason third person here only served to sever any possible connection I had with these characters so for the entire book I never was invested in their story That beginning made their love seem a bit insta ish and then the writing style just wasn’t my thing I also despise time gaps and lemme tell you there are tons in here The one that absolutely pissed me off and marked my first DNF was view spoilerwhen the author fast forwarded the story to ‘6 months later’ after Fin comes back from her trip from Antarctica and immediately breaks up with her boyfriend Ian I literally just read about Ian and Fin in the last chapter hide spoiler
