“It was easier to run away than watch another guy decide I’m too much trouble—too broken or too slow or too…me. I didn’t understand we couldn’t go back to being just friends. Or…that I didn’t want to. ”

Camilla Delgado. Computer genius. Former explosives ordinance expert. Wounded on the dusty roads of Afghanistan, she exchanged her dreams of adventure for a life behind a computer. Trapped by her cane—and her scars—Cam avoids the “real” world whenever she can.
Until her newest online gaming buddy asks her out for coffee.
West, a former Navy SEAL, looks more like a cover model for Men’s Health than a human being. And his slight drawl? Hotter than the espresso Cam spills down her shirt.
But Cam doesn’t do charming. And all of her instincts scream, “RUN!”
West doesn’t understand what he said—or did—to drive his sexy and smart gaming partner away. She set him ablaze, and nothing can put out these flames.
Unable to forget the man who saw her and not her scars, Cam lets West draw her out of her shell.
Now, she’s hot on the trail of a hacker threatening her career while navigating the minefield of falling in love.
When ghosts from West’s past and fears for the future threaten, will Cam find the courage to lower her defenses and let him in?
__
BREAKING HIS CODE is a standalone romantic suspense featuring the men and women of Emerald City Security and Hidden Agenda K&R. Meet these former military heroes and computer geniuses who’ll show you just how steamy and heart-wrenching love can be.
Can broken be beautiful?
Hell, yes.

REVIEW

A●R●C ~ I was given Second Sight: Away From Keyboard Book #4 by Patricia D. Eddy as an Advanced Readers Copy (A●R●C) from Give Me Book Promotions, this book releases on March 12, 2019, I voluntarily read and reviewed this book as it is book #1 in the series for the new release coming up.

I loved this first book in the series, Breaking His Code: Away From Keyboard Book #1. I liked that the leads both had to learn to trust in order to make a relationship work. Usually we read about how one person needs to work twice as hard as the other to make a relationship work but when they both need to work equally as hard it works for me.

For Cam trusting is something she doesn’t do with anyone, since her family kicked her out especially after she was blown up while in the military, everyone shares with her, but she shares with no one until Sampson West. Gamers make such strange bedfellows. Women game just as much as men, it’s just not something we see everyday and Cam AKA Camilla Delgado works had and plays hard. She also gives back to her fellow vets with chat rooms, forums, information, etc. I want to be like Cam when I grow up. She’s there for her fellow Vets with whatever information she a give them even if it’s just someone to talk to.
Both being Vets with PTSD is hard enough but add trust issues and it’s a rough relationship but love always finds a way.

NEW RELEASE BLITZ – Second Sight: Away From Keyboard Series Book #4 by Patricia D. Eddy

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Second Sight
Series: Away From Keyboard #4
Author: Patricia D. Eddy
Genre: Military Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 12, 2019

BLURB

Green Beret Dax Holloway crawled out of the Taliban prison, Hell Mountain, barely alive. His captors took more than his sight. They took his humanity.

Six years later, he’s carved out an existence back in Boston. One dependent on routines. On walking the same path. Day after day. Through shadows and pain.

Second Sight is his only refuge. The most elite investigative and security firm in the country—built out of the rubble of his former life—gives him purpose in a world he can no longer see. A world where he always feels out of place.

Dax thought he’d buried the past. But some ghosts don’t stay dead. And some wounds are forever.

Evianna Archer’s life makes sense. A brilliant coder, she’s poised to be the next darling of the tech world—heading up a project that will redefine home security. Until one moment changes everything.

Her life in chaos, she turns to Second Sight, where the unlikeliest of men becomes her guide. Dax is everything she shouldn’t want, shouldn’t need, shouldn’t trust. But she’s drawn to him, even if his darkness threatens to consume them both.

When they uncover a shocking secret, Dax must make a choice. Stay broken? Or risk his heart—and his life—for the one woman who can see past his scars and into his soul.

Second Sight is a slow burn military romantic thriller. All books in the Away From Keyboard Series are standalone romances featuring a different couple, but past couples and characters play active roles in future books.

EXCERPT

Prologue

Six Years Ago
Dax
A dim halo seeps around the heavy canvas our captors tack over the cell doors. After so long here, I can almost see in the dark. Small variations in the rock walls. The flutter of air moving a corner of the shroud. My toes—if I wiggle them. Not that I’ve tried recently. The infection will take my leg soon. Or my life.
Let me fucking die already.
Ry’s gone. Escaped. Hours ago. Killed at least four on his way out. We were supposed to go together. But I can’t walk. He set my broken femur two weeks ago. One of the few times they let us stay in the same cell. But what should have been a minor burn festered, and now my whole leg is swollen and hot to the touch. At least they don’t tie me up anymore.
Booted footsteps shuffle down the hall. I’m not as good as Ry. I can’t always tell who’s coming. The canvas is ripped away, and I blink rapidly, the dim lights of the hall searing my eyes after so long in the dark.
Rough hands close around my arms, someone throws a bag over my head, and I’m dragged from my cell. My leg screams in agony, the white-hot pain sending me barreling towards unconsciousness. Until they drop me.
Breathe. In and out. Focus.
“Get him up,” Kahlid—the guy in charge—says, and I’m hauled onto a table. Before I can try to fight, they’ve tied my wrists together, then lashed me down with ropes around my torso, my hips, and my ankles.
Oh fuck. This is new.
“Sergeant Dash. How are you today?” As Kahlid pulls off the hood, I spit at him, but he’s too far away.
“Fuck you.”
The punch to my jaw isn’t unexpected. Hell, that’s how the fucker says hello. I taste blood, the metallic flavor turning my stomach.
His smile worries me. As does the glint in his eyes. “Would you like some water?”
This is some sort of trick. Say yes, and they’ll waterboard me. I grind my teeth together, glaring at him, but in my current state, I doubt it’s very effective. After Kahlid nods, one of his lackeys grabs my jaw and digs in, forcing me to open my mouth. A pill lands at the back of my throat, followed by half a bottle of water, and unprepared, I swallow before I can stop myself.
“Antibiotics only, Dash. Do not look so…frightened.” Starting to pace with his fingers laced behind his back, he continues. “Your friend Ryker killed several of my men last night.”
“Good for him.” Another punch, more blood staining my lips. “You gonna keep that up? You want me to talk, it ain’t gonna happen if you break my jaw.”
“I do not want to hurt you, Dash. I only want to know where your friend Ryker was going. He will not get far. We shot him many times. I am worried for him. Tell me his escape route, and I promise you, he will not be harmed when we find him. We will treat his wounds and send him to hospital.”
“Yeah. And I’m Santa Claus.” I don’t have the energy to keep this up. My leg throbs with every beat of my heart, my split lip is swelling rapidly, and I’m nauseous from the water they forced down my throat.
Kahlid leans over me, and shit. The bastard’s a good actor. He actually manages to look…concerned. “What I have to do, Dash…you will not heal from this.”
Is he finally going to kill me? Fear snakes its cold, bony fingers around my heart, but I’m so far gone, so weak, in so much pain death would be a welcome relief. “That’s not…my…fucking…name. Whatever you’re…gonna do…just get it…over with.”
Behind Kahlid, two of his lackeys pull on thick, rubber gloves, and my stomach churns. Not the blowtorch. Or a belt. Or even a metal rod. This…has to be something different. Kahlid grabs a fistful of my hair—it’s longer now. Hangs into my eyes. “Where is he? Tell me and I will not have to do this.”
“Go…to…hell,” I grunt. “You’ll never…find him.”
Kahlid slams my head down on the wooden table, and the edges of my vision darken. His crooked smile is the last thing I see as a harsh, caustic liquid splashes into my eyes, and I start to scream.

* * *

The metal tray lands on the stone floor with a crash, and I jerk awake, my heart racing. The cell door slams shut, and a weak glow of light dims as the canvas flops back down. I don’t know how long it’s been since they blinded me. Kahlid told me I screamed for half a day. Then he broke the last two fingers on my left hand when I still wouldn’t talk. The one time they dragged me out of this cell since, my whole world was a muted sea of dull, washed out colors and agony every time I forced my swollen eyes open.
Crawling slowly, only able to use one arm and one leg without passing out from the pain, I feel along the filthy stone floor until I find the edge of the tray.
Fuck. I hope Ry made it.
I scoop up a bit of the rice slurry with my uninjured hand, then let it fall through my fingers. I can’t. They’ve taken everything. Dax Holloway doesn’t exist anymore. Hell killed him. I don’t know when it happened. Every beating. Every scar. Every time they threw me in that goddamned hole. Left me there until I was out of my mind with hunger.
I can’t walk. Can’t make a fist with my dominant hand. Can’t…see. Why keep fighting? Months ago, I was ready to give up. Starved myself for what I think was a week. Until they force fed me, then whipped Ry until his back was bloody. But he’s gone. Safe. Or dead.
Forcing myself to sit up, I grab the tray and fling it against the bars. That’ll earn me another beating. More broken bones. I don’t give a shit. “You want me to talk? How’s this? You’re all a bunch of sadistic fucks. You can carve me into a thousand pieces, and I’ll still never tell you what you want to know!”
I collapse, my head hitting the dirty floor. Shouts echo down the winding stone hall, and I try to scramble back, knowing they’ll come for me. I don’t care what they do, but I won’t make it easy for them.
Despite all the months I’ve been here, I still can’t understand much Pashto. But Kahlid’s men sound panicked. Heavy footsteps race down the hall past my cell, and then…
Gunfire.
Not AKs. Not Taliban guns. Colt M4s. SEALs. Special Forces. Rangers.
“Go, go, go!” someone shouts, a hint of a Southern twang coloring their words.
“Four hostiles down,” another voice responds. “Clear.”
Wrapping my good hand around the bars, I try to pull myself up. “American,” I call weakly. “Here.”
“Get that goddamn door open. Now.” Light flares, bright enough to penetrate my swollen lids, as the canvas is ripped away, and a dark shadow looms as someone breaks the lock. “Holloway?”
“Yes.” I reach out a tentative hand and find a tactical vest as the man kneels next to me. “Who—?”
“West Sampson. SEAL Team Eight on a joint op with ODA. Can you—”
“Where is he?” Ryker roars from down the hall.
Oh God. He made it.
“Third cell,” West calls. “I’m bringing him out.”
Only a few feet away now, Ryker growls, “No one touches him but me. Dax?”
I jerk my head towards his voice, opening my eyes, desperate to see him. Except…I can’t. Not after what those fuckers did to me. The pale reddish glow from the hall brightens as the heat of a flashlight paints my face.
“Fuck. Dax, what the hell…? Your eyes.”
“Questions later,” West says. “This place is coming down as soon as we’re clear. Get him up and move.”
“Where’s Kahlid?” Ryker asks as he hauls me over his shoulders in a fireman’s carry, his arm hooking under one knee as he grips my wrist tightly. Unable to see or tell up from down, I can’t orient myself, and nausea crawls up from my stomach when he starts hustling down the hall.
Shouts, another three shots. “Blue Team Alpha approaching egress point. Need a location on Target Zulu,” West says.
We start to climb. I’m…safe. I’m going home. The tears gathering in my burned and blistered eyes send shooting pain through my skull, but I don’t care.
“Roger that. Kahlid’s down. They’ve got him at the mouth of the cave. He’ll be dead in five minutes.”
“Then we’ve got time.” Ryker’s voice lowers, turns grave. “He’s ours, Sampson. Give us sixty seconds alone with him, then we’re gone.”
West doesn’t respond—at least not that I can hear. The first whiff of fresh, free air smells like heaven, and then West orders everyone to fall back. Somewhere below me, I hear raspy, rattling breathing.
“I told you I’d kill you,” Ryker says as he bends and sets me on my feet. Keeping an arm around my waist so I don’t collapse, he presses a pistol into my hand.
“I can’t see, Ry,” I whisper. “You have to—”
He shifts me. “Put your other arm around my shoulders and hang on. I’ll aim for you. We fire together.”
With a nod, I clutch the back of his tactical vest so I don’t fall, and he supports my left arm with his. To my right, he cocks his pistol.
“Fifteen months, asshole. Every day, I pictured this moment. When your last sight would be the two men who took down Hell. Say your prayers, fucker.” After a beat, Ryker snorts. “On second thought…don’t.”
We fire together, and as the gun falls from my shaking hand, Ryker says, “We’re going home, brother.”
Home. As Ryker half-carries me down the mountain and a series of explosions shakes the ground under our feet, I start to sob. We might be going home, but I’ll never see Boston again.

AUTHOR BIO

Patricia D. Eddy lives in many worlds. Witches, vampires, and shifters inhabit one of them, military men and women fill another, with sexy Doms and strong subs carving out the final slice of her literary universe. She admits to eleven novels (though there are at least five unfinished drafts on her desk right now), all while working a full-time job, running half-marathons, and catering to the every whim of her three cats. Despite this whirlwind, she still finds time to binge watch Doctor Who all of the Netflix Marvel shows, and most recently, The Handmaid’s Tale. Oh, and she hopes to one day be able to say that she plays the guitar. Right now, she mostly tortures the strings until they make noise.

BLURB

One moment.

Two lives.

Their last chance for love.

Inara’s never second-guessed a shot, not until the disaster in Colombia—the disaster that led to Coop’s death.

Drifting, off balance, her emotions out-of-control, she has to pull it together before she’s benched for good.

Royce understands Inara’s pain. A stroke may have broken his body, but a mountain of guilt crushed his soul. He needs to pick up the shattered pieces of his life and rebuild. He’s a fighter, but sometimes even the strongest warrior needs help from someone special.

When Inara’s past threatens Royce’s future, she has to take a stand. Love is a battle, and a good soldier commits fully.

Can Inara pull the trigger when it matters most?

And if so, can she live with the consequences?

REVIEW

I was given Second Sight: Away From Keyboard Book #4 by Patricia D. Eddy as an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) from Give Me Book Promotions, this book releases on March 12, 2019, I voluntarily read and reviewed this book as it is book #2 in the series for the new release coming up.

I liked this book, I would recommend that you read book 1 in the series prior to reading this book, due to continuation of characters. I found the action was at a good steady pace throughout the book while the romance kind of came second to what was happening, Inara and Royce are perfect for each other. Neither one having been in a relationship before makes it perfect for them.

Inara and Royce are set up by Cam and West almost everyone in this book is ex-military which gives them something more in common. Inara is of middle-eastern and British decent and after 9/11 felt the hatred of people who at one point liked her, now disgusted, she remembers when her Mother was mugged, beaten and stabbed on her way home from the store. Growing up in America and then being treated like public enemy number one would be hard for anyone. Royce was Cam’s CO and best friend and they are slowly working their way back to that.

Royce must deal with several health issues and as a programmer ends up helping Alzheimer’s patients with a tracking app he’s working on while recuperating from brain surgery and having a stroke. He’s been dealing with the tumor for 3 years but the surgery to remove it was a success now life can move on, hopefully with a relationship with Inara.

Inara and Royce are hot together, the chemistry bursts the pages into a blaze when they are at it and Royce doesn’t do vanilla sex add a little kink and he’s a happy man, leather and tying Inara up and he’s done!

Doubt has a huge place in this book and I’m glad to see it get’s put away at the end because it has no place in a love story of any kind.

Getting ready for book 3 Ryker’s story now.
