Doc by K.D. Robichaux
Dr Neil Walker, MD, MFT, Ph D
I’m not your average therapist. As the founder of Imperium Security—the cover for my mercenary team—I’ve dedicated my entire life to helping heal those who’ve had their power unwillingly taken from them and avenging the ones who didn’t survive.
A decade after creating the perfect team, I’ve now watched as every one of my brothers-in-arms has met and married their perfect match, the special women who were meant for them—because not just any woman is cut out to be the wife of a mercenary. And it was through one of these matches I finally met The One, the woman of my dreams, the one I’ve sworn to help heal and protect above all others.

It was only supposed to be for the weekend, but then all hell broke loose, and I went from just staying with Doc so my sister could have a worry-free romantic getaway with her honey, to living with him for an entire year.
Oh, boo-hoo, poor me, trapped in this amazing, state-of-the-art mansion with a dog who loves the hell out of me. And not trapped because Neil won’t let me go. Heavens, no. Neil is dreamy and a real-life hero, and he tries everything to help me step foot back into the world. It’s a self-imposed prison, because nothing good ever came of me being out in the wild.
I made a promise nearly a decade ago that I’d never let myself fall in love again. Love brought pain, both emotional and physical, and the last time I was in love, I barely escaped with my life. But I’m finding it harder to resist this magnetism between us, especially when he makes it perfectly clear he wants me and only me.
No, Doc isn’t your average therapist.
So is he the one man who can not only save me from my past, but also heal my heart?
I was so excited for this book, the anticipation almost killed me! I thought there was no way that the story was going to be able to live up to the the hype and the build up, but the author blew this story totally out of the water! It is full of emotions, and support, and love and beauty! It’s an amazing story, focusing on healing, and moving on after horrific events. But there is also enough danger, intrigue and mystery to keep even the toughest critic glued to the story!
Astrid is a damaged woman. She has had a hard life, dangerous and violent. She is just beginning to find out who she is again, and who she wants to be. But with a strong support system, and a man that just won’t let her quit, she is getting stronger every day, moving a little further down a healing path that leads to a future that is bright with promises.
Doc is my favorite character of the series, just because he seems so mysterious! He has his own tragic past, one he holds close to his heart, one that has shaped him into the man he is today. But he also has a future, one that he has to be careful with, but one that promises to be amazing!
I can’t say enough how amazing Doc & Astrid’s story was. The entire series has been wonderful, but I really think this one was my favorite, because it shows how healing this lifestyle can be, in the right circumstances, and how even horrific circumstances can’t change who you are inside. I loved how supportive Doc was, and how brave Astrid was. It was definitely a beautiful story, one that is brimming with hope for the future. Definitely worth the wait!
