When Marine veteran Nash Ware walks into the library where shy librarian Betsy Bobbin works, she's intimated by the handsome man who wears an eye patch and an attitude. Her car has a flat in a storm and Nash comes to her rescue. A fight outside a bar between an angry Nash and a drunk frightens Betsy. She's fallen for him but is it safe to fall in love with a wounded veteran with PTSD? Betsy is torn. Will love and trust win out over her fear before it's too late?

Nash has found the girl of his dreams, but his wounds run deep. His ex-fiancé was repulsed by his eye and his eye patch, and manufactured drama like bees do honey. However, real drama surrounds Betsy, when a stalker comes after her sister.

CHECK OUT tells the story of a shy librarian and an injured marine. Betsy is happy working at the library all her life. That is all shook up when Nash brings his books back to the library, and her sister turns up for a stay, bringing baggage with her.

This had the potential for a great story. Instead, I read a good one. I don't know if it's the author's writing style or just how I was reading it, but I never once was drugged within the story, like I love. It was always very clear that I was reading a story. The characters were likeable but I couldn't really feel the chemistry between them. The dialogues were somewhat stilted at times which didn't help.

On the whole, this was a quick read that holds the potential for so much more. Still, it was enjoyable, and a good coffee break book.
