Review: Look Again by Marliss Melton

Tyler Rexall never considered being anything besides a Navy SEAL. But a mission-gone-wrong has ended his career in the Teams, leaving Tyler handicapped, his self-identity obliterated. Returning to his hometown of Louisa, Virginia, Tyler wallows in despair. He has no idea that the young woman showing up on his doorstep with a dog holds his future in the palms of her hands.  Katie Crowley’s lifelong crush on the formidable “T-Rex” hasn’t waned one iota in the last decade. Seeing him beaten down and handicapped arouses her determination to help him, even as she’s being terrorized by a desperate man who is getting bolder by the day.  Can Katie convince a proud man like Tyler to accept that a service dog can change his life? Unfortunately, she may not get the chance or the time to heal him as her heart demands, not when her stalker returns for a final encounter.

Look Again by Marliss Melton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having loved Marliss previous two series I was happy to see she was starting a third. This prequel kicks off the Echo Platoon series by introducing us to Tyler Rexall known as T-Rex when he was a Navy SEAL.

Since high school Tyler had one goal – to be a Navy SEAL. He accomplished that goal but when he loses a foot on a mission his career with his team is over. If that wasn’t enough, when he gets home expecting to get nurturing from his mother it turns out she is in a home in the later stages of dementia and his father decided to move in with her. Still struggling with the nightmares from his last mission Tyler’s a little depressed with how his life turned out.

Katie Crowley had a crush on Tyler all through high school but knew he never saw the geeky awkward girl she was back then. When she runs into him and see his disability and the dead look in his eyes she decides she is going to do something for him. Katie trains service dogs and she decides Tyler needs one and walks right up to his door and delivers one.

Both Katie and Tyler were dealing with trauma from their past. There was a reason she starting the service dog training – that’s all I’m sayin. She also seems to have a stalker which adds some suspense to the story. I loved both characters and was very satisfied with their story even being on the shorter side.

In the end we got to meet all of the Echo Platoon who will be the hero’s in future books. I’m hooked and cant wait for the next.
