Special Forces Sergeant Dax Holloway crawled out of the Taliban's clutches barely alive. His captors took more than his sight. They took his humanity. Six years later, he's carved out an existence back in Boston. One dependent on routines. On walking the same path. Day after day. Through darkness and pain. Always alone. Second Sight is his only refuge. The most elite investigative firm in the country-built from the rubble of his former life-gives him purpose in a world he can no longer see. Evianna Archer's life makes sense. A brilliant coder, she's poised to be the next darling of the tech world-heading up a project that will redefine home security. Until one moment changes everything. Her life in chaos, she turns to Dax for protection. He's everything she shouldn't want, shouldn't need, shouldn't trust. But she's drawn to him. When they uncover a shocking secret, Dax must make a choice. Stay broken? Or risk his heart-and his life-for the woman who chases all his dark shadows away? Second Sight is a slow burn military romantic thriller. All books in the Away From Keyboard Series are standalone romances featuring a different couple, but past couples and characters play active roles in future books.… (mer)

Whoa I seriously finished this in less than a day. I started it and felt so bad for Dax but then I thought about all he overcame, I felt proud of him. My heart still hurt for all he had endured but he takes control and tries to make it ok. Evianna is a coder and trying to launch a new system that will help thousands of people but she becomes a victim of a stalker/murderer so she seeks the help of Second Sight, Dax’s PI firm, to help protect her. They help her and try hard to protect her and slowly her and Dax come to need and love each other. This is a beautiful story of how a beautiful soul can help a damaged one by being nice, helpful, and loving. ( )

After reading On His Six and seeing Hell through Ryker's memories, I knew that Dax's story would be heartwrenching. And it was, in all the right ways.

Dax was so, so very broken. I cried through his retelling of his time in Hell and losing his sight. I felt his discomfort in not being able to see how he came across to Evianna in their initial meeting.

Evianna makes for a perfect counterpart to Dax - strong, willful, intelligent and understanding. She steps into his world without knowing what he needs, and then rises to the challenge.

We saw past characters, but the story stood strong on its own. You don't need to have read the previous three books.... but do yourself a favor and read them anyhow.

This author has a way with storytelling that just pulls you in. When I pick up her books, I know that nothing useful will get done until her characters are done telling me their stories.

I look forward to the next, and (not so) secretly hope we still see a lot more of Ry and Dax as they both learn to heal ( )

I came across this on a BookBub email and was intrigued by the character of Dax, the hero, an ex Special Forces soldier who survived 15 months of captivity, torture and finally being blinded, and is now running an elite investigative firm.

The author shows great insight into the problems Dax faces in trying to deal with the problems of both PTSD and blindness. The other characters so also well-drawn, though I was a little less convinced by Evianna, the heroine, and one aspect of the plot where I felt she was impossibly naive not to have seen the risk that was being incurred in the project she was managing. That aside, there are plenty of thrills and excitement in the book, with a satisfying ending.

Well-worth reading. ( )
