Merrick Thatcher went through a hell that no one could possibly imagine. He fought to protect his country, his family, and the men standing at his side, but it wasn’t just being a soldier overseas that changed him. He watched his friends die in front of him, felt indescribable pain, and lost his sight in the very same moment.
Badly injured, blind, and angry, he’s done with war, but now he’s fighting his own battle. So, he’s waiting for it to end, spending his days and nights in a thick darkness no light can penetrate. Until Grace walks into his life and his broken eyes open to a woman that changes everything for him.
A story about two flawed souls finding love amidst the grief. A love that shines vividly, even in the dark, and discovering that sometimes being broken is how the light gets in.

Vivid was such a beautiful real story! 6+++++ stars for me!
Merrick is back from war, he’s trying to survive even though at times he doesn’t want to keep going. He’s injured and blind, but being blind doesn’t take away the visions he can’t get away from. Watching his men being killed, injured, and unable to save them all. He can’t stop seeing it, and he tortures himself over it.
Merrick is a beautiful, beautiful, HOT, man that knows what he wants, and also broken……
I’m not going to put spoilers here, so I’m going to keep it straight. He meets Grace, and she changes everything for him. He helps him to “see” even though he’s blind. She helps him to want to survive, to keep fighting for him, for his family.
Vivid was such an inspiring story, although it isn’t a real story, while reading it, you can’t help but to get lost in it like it really did happen. Jessica has a way with putting you there, while it’s taking place. Feeling Merrick’s and Grace’s emotions. Although I haven’t been through it myself, she seemed to have hit spot on with dealing with PTSD. I can’t imagine what soldiers go through coming home after being away for so long, and not just coming home, but also being injured. The pain and suffering the families see also. My heart dropped in this story so many times. it was a heartfelt story filled with laughter, heartache, crying, suffering, you name it, I felt it. There were so many personal moments, I just felt like since Merrick couldn’t see, the descriptions…… They made everything that much clearer while reading. Describing what Merrick was feeling while “seeing” with his hands.
Jessica was spot on with Vivid. It was told from Duel POV’s, the whole story flowed flawlessly. I never got lost asking myself what just happened here. Grace and Merrick connected so well together. I felt myself connecting with Grace and Merrick, and on some situations, found myself in their shoes. I suggest EVERYONE pick this one up.
