RAID (Unfinished Hero #3) by Kristen Ashley

Raid (Unfinished Hero, #3)Let me start by saying, Thanks KA for the unplanned new book AND the early release!

I discovered and fell in love with all things Kristen Ashley this past summer and DEVOURED all her books one right after the other.  Unfortunately it left me in KA withdrawals. Then Raid was announced and all was right in the world.  
((((insert happy dance))))

Raid our PTSD Ex Marine comes home and finds his reward in our sweet Hanna.
Here is the cover write up:

Hanna Boudreaux has lived in the small town of Willow, Colorado all her life. The great-granddaughter of the town matriarch, she's sweet, cute and quiet.
Too quiet.
Hanna has a moment of epiphany when she realizes her crush for forever, Raiden Ulysses Miller, is not ever going to be hers. She sees her life as narrow and decides to do something about it.
Raiden Miller is the town of Willow's local hero. An ex-marine with the medal to prove his hero status, he comes home, shrouded in mystery. It takes a while but, eventually, Hanna catches his eye.
But after all these years of Raid and Hanna living in the same town, the question is, why? Is Raid interested in Hanna because she's sweet and cute? Or does Raid have something else going on?

Another KA Alpha male with tell it like it is attitude and yummy sexy ways.  *SIGH* So here is what I loved. Hanna’s Schwinn bicycle, Grandma in church, Spot the cat and best friend KC. Love the revisit of Knight  & Creeds’ cast of characters.  

Having Raid work and come to terms with his PTSD was an uneasy journey. But that is exactly what it is. Uncomfortable, unexpected and always underlining. Strong men find it hard to deal. KA maneuvered this story line really well.  

In the write up there is a warning of BDSM. But in my opinion it is very light. 

My negatives are few. This was a relatively short read for a KA book. Losing myself in her worlds for a few days are one of my favorite things to do. I hear she has been picked up by a publishing house and editing has come into play. I just hope she doesn’t lose the voice she has had in her books. I like it too much to want it to change.  Also, her need to justify a portion of her book. Done in a blurb at the end. Not needed KA. You speak to a group of women that get it. Get you. Real women with faults and flaws but love them all. The women in your books  are real women, in body and thought it's what draws us in girl.
