She’s a victim.
After surviving the unspeakable horrors during the prison riot at March Correctional, Cori Shawbell leaves her job at the prison. She accepts a nursing position at the military rehab center working with wounded war vets. Drowning in her own distress, the mask she wears shields her afflictions from those in her life.
She suffers in silence.
He’s a hero.
He gave all for his country, and the war took more than Gage Knight could ever get back. He lost his leg and his brothers, but more importantly he lost a piece of himself overseas. Recovering at the military rehab hospital, he wears his armor with pride and shuts the world out as he tries to cope with the rage that consumes him.
Nothing sparks life in him, until he meets Cori.
Can two broken people find strength, courage, and healing in each other? Or will they remain behind the masks they wear so well?
Authors Note: This is a part of a series, however, each book can be read as a standalone. Only intended for readers 18 and up.
ARC provided by Author/Publisher for honest review.
Behind the Mask is the 2nd book in the Nurses series and even though it could be read as a stand alone, I think it would be best to read the first, Behind the Gate to get the full effect of its characters and storyline. This is Cori’s story. She is friends with Olivia and was beaten and raped in the first story. This is about survival for her. She is still going through a lot even though it’s been months. I felt bad for her. She gets a new job and this is where she meets Gage. He has been though his own trauma. It’s a good combination for these two characters. They are broken mentally and physically and can heal with the help of each other if they let it. Add in an obstacle of unwanted advances from a fellow nurse and you have a well rounded story. Curious to see what happens next!
