    Excellent book. Roman is living in his grandmother's house, doing some repairs on it, basically hiding out. He is haunted by the things he saw during the war, and avoids people because of his flashbacks. He rescues Jenna one night when she confronts someone who is stealing from one of her construction sites. He starts volunteering at that site to keep an eye on Jenna and also to try to help a homeless fifteen year old boy. He doesn't understand why he is drawn to Jenna enough to pull him out of his self imposed exile. Jenna is the eternal optimist. She always sees the best in people and is usually able to get them to use that best to help her projects. When she is rescued by Roman, and again when he starts working with her, she feels an intense attraction to him. She can also see that he is troubled and wants to help him. She gets advice from her brother who had also been military. As they work together to help the boy, their feelings for each other deepen, but Roman still insists he's no good for her. When Jenna is attacked again and Roman rescues her, he is the only one who is able to help her deal with the memory of what happened. I really liked both characters. Roman thinks he is a hazard to other people, but he is a protector under it all and that is the main quality that comes through. His memories of his last tour are heartbreaking, but it still shows what a deeply caring man he is. I liked Jenna too. She is a smart, independent and capable woman. She tends to take a few more risks than she should, but that is a reaction to the overprotectiveness of the men in her family. I loved the way that she insists on helping Freddie and how she gets Roman to help her. I also liked the way that she refused to give up on Roman.

    Jean Brashear ends her MacAllister/Deep in the Heart series with the story of the MacAllister baby, Jenna--a compassionate, competent woman tired of being just the youngest of a thriving, successful family who dote on her, protect her, and refuse to let her face life on her own.When the the same derelicts she works so hard to help attack her, shadow-man Roman Gallardo materializes out of the darkness to save her. He continues to run interference as she goes to bat for a teenager trying to raise a six year old half brother, but the pain and damage of his experiences in Iraq make him unable to give Jenna what she deserves--a loving, forever relationship like those formed by all the other MacAllisters.From What the Heart Wants through to A Life Rebuilt, Jean creates books that tear your heart out while gladdening your soul, and you'll probably like each book better than the last.I loved how she somehow managed to tie up everyone's story in A Life Rebuilt, while giving the MacAllister's Sunshine girl a chance to shine--as her own, amazing woman.

    This heroine is TSTL. Any woman doing the work she is supposed to be doing would be a lot more street wise. Meanwhile the hero is ignoring the threat he heard to her even though he is constantly trying to protect her. Not likely.

    A solid romance with some "drama" (suspense, I don't know) added into the mix.... Made me want to look up some of the other MacAllisters books. Enjoyed the delving into PTSD victims... Jenna and Roman had great chemistry and really seemed to help the real thems....if that makes any sense whatsoever.
