Phoenix /fēniks/: (in classical mythology) a unique bird inhabiting the Arabian Desert that burned itself on a funeral pyre before rising from the ashes with renewed youth to live through another cycle.

This isn’t mythology, it’s war, and Hendy is left in the hands of Hell’s cruelest gatekeepers.

His team is killed before his very eyes, and despite his efforts to save them, he’s captured and subjected to merciless torture—losing virtually every piece of his identity but his pulse.

After his rescue, he returns home from Afghanistan, saddled with facing the daunting task of healing his physical scars as well as the invisible ones—his emotional demons.

Dr. Presley Cole isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. Embarking on a new journey, she makes it her mission to prove to Hendy that his life isn’t over; that he’s worthy of love.

Because sometimes even a phoenix needs help to rise…

Out of the Ashes.

Out of the Ashes is the second book in a spin-off of  the Teach Me series.  If you have read that series, then you will know that this one is just as good as the rest. This one is Hendy and Presley's story.   If you read Out of Love, you will remember Foster mentioning a friend who he thought was lost in the war.  Well, it turns out Hendy was alive and being held captive.  This story takes place months after his rescue

I really enjoyed watching Presley and Hendy fall in love.  Their relationship was a slow burn that ended up being about friendship first.  Hendy had a mountain of baggage due to his injures from his time in captivity.  It was heartbreaking and I found my self rooting for him.  I was happy with is decision toward the end.  It made their  HEA that much stronger.  My favotire thing about this couple was the Jeapordy style clues that they would give to each other.  That was really cute.

This is another great offering form this author. It definitely can be read as a stand alone. I highly recommend it as well as her others.  You won't be sorry.
