Permanently Legless by J.L. Merrow 3 Stars!
Only half the man he used to be — but maybe that’s enough
The Taliban may have taken both Chris’s legs, but he came back from Afghanistan with his sense of humour and his lust for life firmly intact. The one thing that can shake his confidence is meeting Josh, the one-night stand from before his tour of duty he hasn’t been able to forget.
It turns out Josh hasn’t forgotten Chris, either. He spent the time they were apart fearing the worst every time a soldier was reported killed in action — and wishing Chris would use the number Josh gave him, and call.
Josh’s delight on seeing Chris again quickly turns to shock on seeing his injuries. With Chris such a changed man, can they still have a future?
I was really enjoying this novella until it suddenly ended. When we were going to get into real couple time and being in love and a relationship and more complicated feelings with interesting characters, the story ends.
So, while I liked it, I didn’t love it because the romance could have been so much more.
