No man—and no heart—left behind.

The Only One, Book 2

Months after a bullet ended his SEAL career, Senior Chief David Flint doesn’t know which is worse: struggling to adjust to life as a civilian, or watching his lover, Lieutenant Commander Josh Walker, leave for one deployment after another.

Missing the career he loved—and knowing all too well the danger Josh faces—doesn’t help. And as Josh walks out the door for another assignment, David can feel their relationship cracking under the strain.

With so little time between assignments, Josh has no idea how to fix things with David. One thing he’s sure of, though…if they don’t find a way to resolve the rising tension between them, there’s a storm coming they might not be able to weather. But he plans to give it his best shot—when he gets home.

Assuming he makes it home alive…

Warning: Contains plenty of smoking-hot sex between two dudes who just wanted to be SEALs, not deal with all this romance crap. They went and fell in love anyway, and now have to figure out how to make it work while saving the world and teaching their puppy not to beg.

Eine Kugel im Bein beendet die SEAL-Karriere von Senior Chief David Flint und er wird ehrenvoll in Rente geschickt. Fast zwanzig Jahre war er bei der Navy und die Rente stand ohnehin kurz bevor. Dennoch ist für ihn das Zivilleben ein Schock, sein schlimmes Bein tut weh und sein Lebensgefährte Josh wird mit dem SEAL-Team ständig auf neue, gefährliche Einsätze geschickt.

Die Prämisse des Buch ist: Wie kommt ein Mann damit zurecht, dass sein Freund ständig in Krisengebiete geschickt wird?

Antwort des Buches: Nicht besser als die Ehefrauen von Militärangehörigen, eher noch schlechter.

Die Autorinnen führen uns durch die quälenden Konflikte zwischen David und Josh, die sich zwar über alle Maßen lieben, aber im Privatleben nicht besonders gut miteinander zurecht kommen. David ist noch ängstlicher um seinen Mann besorgt als Soldatenfrauen, weil er als Ex-SEAL genau weiß, wie gefährlich die Missionen sind. Josh hat mit schrecklichen Erinnerungen zu kämpfen und kann David nicht erzählen, welchen Horror er erlebt hat (Geheimhaltung). Das sorgt zusätzlich für Reibung.

Das Buch ist auf jeden Fall spannend geschrieben, hat einen Actionteil, der in dem Umfang für mich nicht hätte sein müssen, aber bestimmt das Heldenhafte von SEALs ganz großartig darstellt. Der Konflikt zwischen den Männern ist in sich stimmig, für mich war er nicht in jeder Hinsicht nachvollziehbar. David fällt als Zivilist in ein ganz tiefes, depressives Loch und Josh, der mit verschiedenen Traumata zu kämpfen hat, muss ihm da auch noch heraus helfen. Gerade WEIL David ein Exmilitär ist, konnte ich sein Verhalten nicht wirklich verstehen.

Von Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a continuation of the story the Only One Who Knows. Yes, it can be read on its own but I think you’ll get more out of it if you read the other book first. That being said, I started this book and read it from beginning to end; I simply could not put it down. The Only One Who Matters was phenomenal; the writing was sharp, the plot compelling, and the characters rich and deep.

Following a mission that almost took his life ex-SEAL David Flint is dealing with being a civilian, rehabilitating his leg, and trying to figure out where he belongs in the life of his partner Lieutenant Commander Josh Walker as he leaves for one deployment after another. Living together has brought them closer but with Josh’s constant deployments their relationship is starting to feel the strain.

I found it so interesting that David, an ex-SEAL, had just as hard a time if not more so with his lover deploying as the wives, mothers, and significant others of the rest of the SEAL team. I love that this book was written this way because it shows that no one is immune to the worry, the hardship, and the issues that arise when a loved one is gone. There was a strain between these two men; one that they knew was there but they just didn’t know how to fix as communication is not one of their strengths.

With Josh and the team gone, David finds himself helping out one of the wives from the team and it was entertaining to see a very different side of this large, in charge, and complex man. We saw a different side of Josh as he led his men and made decisions that affected them all. It was great to see that he was capable of being the man and leader David saw in him when they first met.
So much happens in this book but I don’t want to give anything away so I’ll just say this is a complex story with a lot of surprises, some good and some bad. The Only One Who Matters isn’t a pretty story; these are two guys who have a hard time sharing their feelings, communicating their needs and letting anyone help, but there’s no doubt they belong together and are in it for the long haul.

As I mentioned when I finished 'The Only One Who Knows', book one in 'The Only One' series by Cat Grant and L.A. Witt, I have been on pins and needles waiting for this second installment. In my opinion, these books should be read in the order they've come out, because if you miss the first book then you won't get a whole lot of backstory that is fairly integral to this second book in the series. 'The Only One Who Matters' exceeded my expectations and I thought that would be tough to do. I mean, I've already admitted I'm completely easy when it comes to Navy SEALS, and making this book even better than the first one was practically more than I could handle. Never fear, I said "practically". *grins*

Josh, David, and the real world. A lot of adjustments have to be made. David is no longer a SEAL and he's still recuperating from the gunshot that ended his career. Josh is still on active duty and being sent out on missions. For David, being at home just waiting for Josh to come home from his missions is, in some ways, worse than being on the missions ever was. And for Josh, knowing he can't fix this and make it all okay is almost just as bad. The tension between them is becoming harder and harder to deny and since these are two men who don't discuss feelings or what they're thinking about, the times in between Josh's deployments are growing very brittle.

"It drives me insane, because I know what you're doing out there, and I miss doing it myself. I hate that I can't anymore. Trying to find my place in the civilian world with the constant reminders of what I was and what I can't be… And since I know what's out there and what happens, I can't sleep because I know… I know what could happen to you."

The inevitable occurs and Josh and a couple of the members of his team get taken while on their mission. David's worst fear is coming true. Since David promised one of those missing men that he'd look out for his wife and kids while the team was deployed, David is also helping care for two toddlers and a newborn while comforting the wife. And getting comfort in return. It gives David an up-front, honest view of a Navy SEAL's wife in action. Tough, capable, and strong for her family.

I'm not sure that I can begin to express how much I loved this book, but also what a strong visceral impact it had on me. Our military men and women go through things the average person never will, and no doubt about it, it changes them. There is such inner strength in these people and it knocks me over when I stop and really think about it. Not to mention the spouses and loved ones who sit around hoping they won't get a phone call with bad news. Josh struggled with PTSD and flashbacks after his captivity and torture, and it took a lot of strength for David and him to be able to work through their many difficulties and rise above them. Strength and the love these men share almost wasn't enough. It also took allowing themselves to be vulnerable in front of their partner and asking for help when they needed it. I loved this book and everything about it.

For all who have served or are currently serving, and especially to our wounded warriors - thank you for keeping me safe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just as good, if not better, than the first. 18. März 2014
Von JustJen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved the first book in this series and fell in love with Josh and Flint right from the get go. They faced quite a few challenges back then, and that has not lessened any this time around.

Now, Flint, or David as he is now a civilian, is having a lot of trouble coming to grips with the ending of his SEAL career and acclimating to his new life. He is at a bit of a loss as he recuperates from his injury and tries to figure out what he will do with his life. Added to this is the fact that Josh is still enlisted and going on dangerous assignments. David has never been on this end of things, stuck at home and waiting for any news of his loved one, yet knowing full well what Josh faces while deployed. This is really starting to take a toll on their relationship, of which they are both aware. Unfortunately, Josh is not home long enough for them to really do anything about it, so things just sort of sit in limbo until he returns.

In the meantime, David is adjusting, with the help of a team member’s family. They have kind of adopted each other, with David stepping in to help with the kids and pregnant wife while that team member is deployed. It was fun watching David struggle a bit with being around the kids and having to step up to the plate to care for them. I liked watching his comfort level grow little by little as they became more and more important for them. It also really helped David to understand and share the emotions as they commiserated over their deployed partners.

Josh does quite a bit of growing up in this book. Even though they still struggle with communication issues, they are both aware there are issues that must be addressed. I was really pulling for these guys to get through things, especially when Josh finally returns and has to deal with PTSD issues on top of everything else. For some reason, this installment felt so real to me, with the problems they each faced from different sides of the fence. I felt so much for each of them for different reasons and was hanging on for them to really join together and be there for each other. It is clear how much they love and mean to each other even when things aren’t going perfectly for them. This book especially gives you a real sense of some of what military families go through every day.

I love this writing team and they quickly became an auto read for me. While I do really enjoy both on their own, when working together, it is like a double whammy. The stories are solid and well written, pulling various emotions from me in the process. When I begin reading, no sooner am I starting that I find myself at the end and longing for more. This book was no exception. I hope this isn’t the last we will see of David and Josh, but, either way, I know I’ll be excited for where ever the next adventure will take us.

Von Sirius - Veröffentlicht auf

Dear Cat Grant and L.A.Witt,

I reviewed the first book in this series (hopefully this is the last one) and I liked it pretty well overall, but I think I enjoyed this book even more.

As the blurb tells you, we meet David and Josh several months after a difficult injury ended David’s career as a SEAL. He is still recovering and even though he still needs care, David has made vast improvements. David and Josh moved in together at the end of the first book and now they are attempting to build a life together. The main issue these guys face, besides David trying to adjust to civilian life, is that Josh is still being an active SEAL and , a team leader, and David having to worry about Josh coming back in one piece from his the deployment missions.

My heart went out to both of them – I am obviously only speaking as a civilian, but I would think it is hard for any military spouse/partner to wait and worry, knowing every time your loved one leaves that they may not come back alive. I would imagine it is ten times harder for somebody who used to be doing those same missions because he knows exactly what *can* happen and knows many more details than the average civilian spouse, with whom those in the military may share as few details as possible. I also felt for Josh, who was going on so many missions that it felt strange for him to come home.

But of course people deal with it because they have to – some people deal better, some people deal worse, and I totally understood Josh’s comment about his new understanding of why so many guys on his team stayed single. Again, maybe somebody who knows more about the military than I do will find problematic portrayals, but I could not feel any false notes in this book. Both Josh and David try so very hard to deal with the strain of Josh’s work, and of David trying to find work in a world that is pretty much new to him after being military for years, because they do love each other. But sometimes love is just not enough, and when they questioned themselves about whether they could deal with all of it, it just rang so very true to me. I loved that work was so important to Josh – there are few things that annoy me in m/m romances as much as a grown man being defined only by what kind of lover he is looking for. I also loved, however, that while Josh was hoping never to have to make such a choice, it was made clear in the text that his lover was more important to him than even his beloved work.

I really appreciated how this book dealt with PTSD. I mean, I usually detest magic cures of mental illnesses including PTSD, and there is no magical cure or any other type of cure here, really. In previous a romances I’ve read, where I liked how the stories dealt with the similar issues, the characters were getting treated – with therapy, and hopefully with some medications if needed. This book, while acknowledging the need for therapy if PTSD gets so severe that the ability to do the job is impaired also tells us that PTSD eventually becomes a part of their job for many SEALS. Josh at some point thinks about several guys from his team having triggers of different kinds. One man could not handle fireworks, another something else. Obviously those symptoms do not impair them in a significant way, but I kind of liked the idea that the men who have some kind of small or not so small issues do not necessarily have to be portrayed as broken, if that makes sense.

I thought that this book made the men deal with their issues in a grown- up way even when they argued – and when they would have a quarrel which lingered a little longer because the stress just got to them and some stuff just needed to be out in the open, it still made sense to me. Of course, even their last quarrel (last in the book, I doubt they won’t find stuff to argue about after the book ends and their relationship will continue in my imagination) did not last for longer than a few days, and that helped me to not be annoyed either.

Now that I am thinking about it, I reacted to this book in a really strange way – most of the time the tension between the guys does not go away, so even in their happy moments they always have those unresolved issues between them that they have to deal with. At the same time I personally was not annoyed because all their issues just made so much sense and they still mostly acted like adults to me.
There are some exciting action scenes in this book as well, but it does not last as long as it lasted in the first book (or it seemed that way to me). I thought it made sense because the story came back to David and Josh faster. I was very pleased and satisfied with their happy ending; I thought the guys completely earned it.

Grade: B/B+

I gave this review the same title as I did the first in the series--this sequel is perfect, the logical (and sometimes frightening and heartbreaking) continuation of one of the great military romances you will encounter in this or any other year.

In this installment, ex-SEAL Chief David Flint is recovering from his devastating leg wound in a North Korean raid while his 10-years-younger lover, Josh Walker, has taken over his command. Flint is itchy, bitchy and twitchy when it comes to figuring out how to retire and how to rehabilitate, and it does no good that he has somehow found himself in the role of SEAL "wife," worried to hell each time Josh is deployed.

This angst is underscored by the domestic situations he seems to have fallen into for which he is totally unprepared emotionally and by experience--especially when he is coerced into being practically a midwife as well as caretaker for the wife and children of a SEAL team member.

This becomes near tragically untenable when Josh and the husband disappear when on a covert operation in Venezuela. The scenes of this operation are vividly written, much in the way Witt conveyed the action in Korean in the first book in this series. The resulting rescue of Josh and his comrades and Josh's conflicting recovery and his and David's heart wrenching journey to deep and lasting love will fill you with hope and, hopefully satisfaction, with the hugely surprising Epilogue. Well done, Ms. Witt, bring us more like this!
