Review by Jen Skewes 

I loved Jessica Ruben’s Vincent and Eve series and was excited to find out that she was writing another book, based on a character from this series. I immediately became a fan of Ms. Ruben’s after reading this series.  Her writing just sucks you in and Warrior Undone was no different/

Lauren is in Vegas for her friend’s Bachelorette party.  The last person she ever expected to see was Slade, the guy she spent one hot, passionate and amazing night with, after her friend Eve’s wedding.    There was no denying the chemistry then and when she sees him again it still exists.  This man just exudes sex.  Everything about him is hot and sexy.  When things go wrong at the club, they are both at, he is right by her side taking care of her for the remainder of the night.  When she wakes up in the morning, it all comes back to her and she realizes that she needs to get out of there fast.  But when she gets home things aren’t easy for her. She no longer feels like herself. Or maybe she just hasn’t been her true self for a long time.  A phone call to her best friend Eve brings her right back to Vegas for the next two weeks. But that also means seeing Slade, since he is best friends with Eve’s husband.

Slade is a really good man, but he is also a very broken man.  He is a retired Navy SEAL and lately what he saw wile overseas is beginning to haunt him. His mind keeps bringing him back to the past, causing issues in his life and turning him into someone that he is not. He is battling PTSD in a bad way, but he is also battling it in his own way and by himself.  Seeing Lauren again brings back memories of that one night together knows she was love and a family, but he also knows that he cannot give that to her.  She is here for a few weeks and can only give her a small part of him while she is here./. She wants more.  Will giving her more only hurt her in the end?  You will have to read to find out what happens.

I loved Slade.  He has so many demons to face and the way he chooses to battle them may not have been the right way, but I think he was so afraid of what he would lose.   Not realizing that doing it his way truly could cost him a lot more.  He is a good man despite what he is going through or his actions.  I could not help but feel for this man and all that he has been through.  I saw how much Lauren meant to him and how he wanted to be the best man for her, but sometimes things out of your control take over and you are not sure how to handle them or make them go away. 

I really liked Lauren but at times she seemed to be wishy washy when it came to him.  I understand her feelings and wanting him, and I also understand her taking whatever she could get from this man.  But I think it was more about her feelings towards the end where she was showing her strength, but I felt like it wasn’t her/. I can’t go into too much detail without giving away spoilers so I will just leave it at that. 

I loved this book.  I loved Slade and Lauren together, even if at times I wasn’t sure if they should be together.  I will admit that at times their decisions, actions and feelings gave me a bit of whiplash but in the end all I wanted was for them to be happy and together.  This book deals with a heavy topic which Ms. Ruben handled with care.  You see just enough to understand the demons and torture that Slade has been going through.  I felt all the emotions with this book. The love, the hurt, the pain and the happiness.  Another great book from Ms. Ruben.
