Mission: Accept by Stacy Eaton is the second book in the Rise Again Warrior Series, a compelling story with great characters. Dana Donahue has grown up spoiled. She gets everything she wants, and she believes that life is easy. Thanks to a dad who provides everything she needs. Derek is still haunted by the horrors of life in the military and lives off the streets. Meeting Dana is an experience that morphs into friendship and gives him some hope. But he overhears a conversation between Dana and her father, and he knows that Dana’s father has taken a decision that will change her life — cutting down on the support he provides her. She asks for a job from her cousin, Shane, at Rise Again Warrior. Can she grow out of the comfort zone where everything was given to her freely? And what future can there be for her and Derek?
The characters are complex and creating opposites in Derek and Dana is something that enriches the conflict in Mission: Accept. I loved the way the characters were developed. They are real and genuinely broken, and the author writes beautifully about what the military and war can do to people. The writing is superb, sprinkled with descriptions that explore the emotions of the characters, their states of mind, and the way they relate to their reality and with each other. This is the first book I am reading from Stacy Eaton, and while it is the second entry in a series, it reads well as a standalone story. It is emotionally intense, fast-paced, and delightful for fans of romance and military novels.
