    One thought on “Walking Wounded”

    1. John and Kevin were lovers. They met at the military academy, they fell in love at first sight and spent a wonderful year together. Then the life and maybe some hidden fears kept them apart and they left each other not without regrets. Seven years later, John has retired from army after a mental breakdwon in Bosnia, and a following attempt to suicide, and Kevin is out of a recent scandal and waiting to decide what to do with his life. For the first time in their life they can choose what to do i [...]

    2. For two soldiers, one formally with the SAS, both suffering from the ravages of war these men were way too 'nice'. I really don't know what to say except it was, so not, what I was expecting after reading the synopsis. This was an audio book, the narrator was also very 'nice'.

    3. Abandoned for boredom. There’s nothing spectacularly wrong with this gay romance; there’s also just not much noticeably right. It’s one of those insulated ones where clearly the most important thing to the author is that these two men spend as much time physically together as possible, with the outside world/setting/sense of place barely intruding. Which would be fine if I’d found either of them particularly interesting, but there just wasn’t much there aside from paint-by-numbers mili [...]

    4. This was . nice. Aside from the action sequence, it was a very quiet book, nothing much did happen except for two adults learning to live with their past traumas and making a new life together work.

    5. It was great to wake up to a 5 star review of Walking Wounded at Rainbow Reviews this morning!rainbow-reviews/?p=4407

    6. I'm not sure what happened.I'm reading along and old flames are reuniting. It seems awfully easy for them to slide back into a relationship. They have both had some major life changing experiences. After what they have gone through separately, I'd think they'd have changed. I'm sure they could fall in love again, but they aren't the same people, so why would they just jump right into the deep end as if nothing ever happened.That sounded really negative. But I was kinda enjoying the story. Reunit [...]

    7. "I have adored all of Lee Rowan's previous work, so I'm sorry I can't give a more positive rating to this book. Unfortunately, while the premise was interesting, the novel just didn't work for me.[return][return]Kevin and John meet in officer's training and embark on a passionate affair before their army careers take them in separate directions. Fast forward 7 years. Having realised from bitter experience that the army isn't the dependable constant he thought, Kevin gets back in touch with John. [...]

    8. Romance established through a lot of dialogueWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS. Rating: 7/10PROS: - The emotional connection between John and Kevin is well established. Rowan spends just the right amount of time establishing the men’s romantic history and then provides a detailed look at their reconnection, mostly in the form of conversation. (see cons below also) There’s sexual connection too, but the sex scenes are understated and relatively inexplicit.- [...]

    9. 4 Heart Review by LilyIdealistic John joins the army because he wants to “belong”. Kevin who was raised as an army brat joins the army to get out of his father’s shadow. So many things happened and hard decisions were made which separated the two men. Seven years later, they are reunited and both are emotionally wounded souls, matured and wiser but certainly there is still trouble ahead…Whilst the writer touches on PTSD elements in the story which left me feeling very moved, it was the d [...]

    10. Sadly, PTSD stories are pretty common right now. This one focuses on British officers. Kevin and John were lovers during their training, but they haven’t seen each other since Kevin joined the SAS and John went to Kosovo as a UN peacekeeper. Several years later, and both men have left the army. Their respective experiences have left them emotionally fragile when Kevin turns to John for support.The story starts gently as the men get reacquainted and begin to help each other through their PTSD e [...]

    11. This wasn't horrible but at the same time it wasn't very good either. The beginning starts out as a very quiet story of two guys getting back together after letting each other go in the past. They both now carry a lot of baggage and trauma that they are struggling to deal with. The problem is they just pick up where they left off as if nothing has change and they don't really deal with their past other than to spew it out to each other in an info dump. We do get more of John's internal thoughts [...]

    12. This started out as a story about two men, Kevin and Johnny, reconnecting with each other after going their separate ways as soldiers in the British army. After spending years apart serving, and now finished, Kevin reaches out to Johnny with a single phone call. The results brings them back together. They find after all the time spent apart, they still love one another. They pick up where they left off. Both are wounded soldiers their wounds more mental than physical. They seem on the verge of l [...]

    13. This is a nice love story. Of two men who found each other early in their lives, loved each other, chose different paths and come together again years later. Both military, both living with the scars of such of life. John rebuilt his life with school, studying psychology but living day to day without any joy. Kevin, forced to retired after a disastrous incident where soldiers and prisoners were killed. This is a nice long original fanfic like story with some short cuts (the Lord of the rings ref [...]

    14. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed. I think the author could have gone further with some of the themes/parts of this book. Maybe it's just me, because when I asked for something dark, I recommended this title. Sure, there were some darker aspects to this (like apparently their pasts), but the latter half of the book wasn't so much. Certain parts that were supposed to be climactic weren't very much so - it felt short and not done too well. Anyways, I loved the first half of the book, and was [...]

    15. I fell in love with this book. The relationship between these two guys was very sweet and believable. While a lot of times any sex scenes in lgbtq books are hot a dirty, the ones in this book were sweet and romantic, not about the sex but about the emotions.But where it fell a little short (and lost one star) was the non-sex action. See, Kevin's life is in danger. When him and John nearly get killed and the bad guy is in a wreck, they aren't sure if he is alive or dead. And they don't go immedia [...]

    16. This story is about minutia and would have been a good read if it were cut in half. The leads were likable and their reunion romance was enjoyable too but OMG was it boring! E-ver-y single thing was described in minute detail (and no, not just the good kind, i.e. sex!) For instance, the men moving in together takes a chapter: getting the bed up the stairs was two paragraphs and making it another paragraph. Making breakfast is like a cooking show, not a romance novel. This would have been a good [...]

    17. I enjoyed the characters and was interested in their journey until the author introduced an outside conflict. The MCs were dealing with PTSD, reunited love, careers ending and lost faith in system and they were dealing with it in a reasonable and enjoyable manner. I didn't think the story needed a bad guy to cause conflict.

    18. It's easier to write historical than contemporary in a different country. Thank Dog for British friends who catch the worst errors!

    19. Borrowed - KindleI go back and forth between a 3 and a 4, so I will split the difference. It is hard not to fall in love with John and Kevin and want the best for them.

    20. re read for meI love the English voices and the feel of the book.It is an entertaining story and I will read it again.
