Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap


Sean heard voices downstairs and hauled another pillow over his head. He could handle the ringing, or the spinning, or the nausea. Any one of those things were manageable. But all three together filled him with the worst kind of impotent rage, because there was nothing to be done. Even the medications he'd been prescribed didn't work. They didn't touch the dizziness or the tinnitus. Sure, they helped with nausea, but so did being unconscious.
He closed his eyes and willed himself to fall back into the broken sleep he'd been riding when the noise had started again.
But instead of quiet, he got a knock at the bedroom door.
"Go away," he growled in the cold, hard voice he still didn't recognize as his own.
His oldest brother didn't listen, because that wasn't his way. Instead he pushed the door open. Creak.
Sean moved the pillow that was in front of his face out of the way and found Dean looming in the doorway. "You've got a visitor."
"Not up for it."
"Not an option for this visitor."
"Someone from the unit?" Definitely not up for that, then. He was no hero. He'd been dodging visitors the entire month he'd been home, and that wasn't going to change any time soon. "If it's the padre, tell him to screw off."
"It's your wife."
For two weeks in the military hospital in Germany, he'd imagined those words. At first, he'd wanted, needed to hear them. Tried to ask the nurses to get in touch with Jenna, but his words had been all effed up, and they'd ignored his badly written notes.
He'd dreamed of her. Futile, frustrating dreams, of falling asleep in her arms, only to wake up and she was gone.
He'd dreamed of his late mother, too. Hadn't done that in years.
Then the doctors started to talk about his rehab and transitioning out of the army. He'd been reminded at every turn about the ever-present threat of another stroke. Of disability and accommodation. Faces grew sympathetic and voices softened.
Did he want to go to a rehab hospital far from home?
No.
Would he have adequate support if he was discharged? It wasn't a lie to say yes. His brothers would do anything for him. Of course he hadn't allowed them to. He'd hissed and growled and snarled until they gave him space.
And as he struggled with the transition back in Pine Harbour--as he realized just how well and truly screwed he was, not for a short time, but maybe forever--he couldn't stomach the thought of having one of them reach out to her. Couldn't bear the thought of her pitying him, too.
Better for her to be angry and righteous. To move on and leave him behind.
He'd resolved himself to that plan, deciding it would be better for her that he be nothing but a memory.
But she was here.
Now. 
His stomach heaved.
He lurched to his feet, ignoring the way the room twisted obscenely around him, and shoved past Dean. There was no way for him to keep the floor from coming up to meet his face. It was only absurdity that drove some part of him to keep trying, like on the three-hundredth try, mind-over-matter might finally work.
It didn't.
Dean hauled him up and half-carried him into the bathroom, where he lost his lunch in the toilet.
Silently, his brother handed him a damp towel.
His whole life, Dean had been taking care of him. Ten years older and endlessly wiser, he'd been shoved into a parent role before he was ready, but he'd stepped up anyway.
And now he was doing it again, his new life with Liana on hold because Sean was a mess.
Sean swiped angrily at his face. He didn't look in the mirror. He hated what he would see if he did. Gaunt cheeks, scruffy beard. Too long hair, sunken eyes. He didn't need to see himself today to know Jenna couldn't, ever. "Make her go away."
"I'm not going to do that."
"Then what good are you?"
"I honestly don't know." Dean growled under his breath. "You got married?"
That was before.
It hurt so much, a bright, sharp regret in his chest.
"We had a fling." The words turned sour in his mouth. A lie. It had been so much more than that. He'd been the luckiest man in the world.
Had been.
Past tense.
Like everything else in his life, the idea of having a wife was now done. Broken. Impossible and shoved deep down lest it destroy him to think about it.
"She's downstairs." Dean kept pushing that fact in front of him, like he wasn't covered in a cold sweat already.
"I can't."
"You don't have a choice." His brother opened the bathroom door. "Liana and I are going out for an hour to give you some space. I'm telling Jenna you're up here."
No. It was a wounded, pathetic cry, and he swallowed hard not to let it out.
He wouldn't beg.
If he needed to do this, he'd do it. He'd find a way to tell her this was a mistake. Her coming here, them getting married, the whole thing.
He stood there, in front of the sink, and listened to Dean's heavy steps descend the stairs. Murmurs, then silence, followed by noisier murmurs. Dean had gone to get Liana from her studio--interrupting her work--so they could get out of the way.
His chest tightened. It was too late to move--not that he could on his own. Too late to try and look good for her--not that he deserved to preen. 
As the front door clicked shut, his pulse pounded loud inside his head. It added to the disorienting cacophony of sound in there that made it so hard for him to think.
Fitting.
All of his screwed-up brain stuff should make it hard to hear things, but if anything, it heightened his sense of sound. He heard her downstairs. Shifting on the spot. Restless, worrying.
If she'd stood there any longer, that knowledge would have twisted tight enough inside him that he'd have tried to move. Tried and failed, like all the other times, but he was close to lurching forward when she took her first step up the stairs.
Tentative. 
Creak. Another two steps, and a pause. Then a sigh and a resolute return to climbing, step by dooming step, until she appeared in the doorway, wearing jeans and a jacket, her Chucks still on her feet, like she knew he wouldn't let her stay very long.
Her eyes widened and her perfect mouth, sweet and soft, pulled into a surprised O. "Sean?" 
"You shouldn't be here," he said, his voice rough. His knuckles hurt from how hard he gripped the sink to keep himself steady, but what was another layer of pain?
Her eyes flicked down, then dragged up his body, her gaze searching. He stood there and let her hunt for any answer that would satisfy her curiosity. Any answer that would reassure her he was nothing like the man she'd married.
Nothing like the man who'd loved her for too brief a time.
She took a shuddering breath as her eyes met his again, and his chest cracked open in a hard, wrenching twist. "And yet I am," she whispered.
