Here and Now - Cheryl Etchison


The Rangers of the 1st/75th fight hard, train hard and play hard. They are physically strong and mentally tough, disciplined and courageous. But all their military training hasn't prepared them for falling in love.

Former Ranger Medic Lucky James feels right at home working long night shifts in the ER, but less so during the day, when his college classes are filled with flirtatious co-eds. When his 19-year-old chem lab partner shows up at his work with dinner for “her Lucky,” he quickly enlists the help of Rachel Dellinger, a nurse and fellow third shift vampire.

Rachel is a people pleaser at heart, but she’s finally decided enough is enough when it comes to her on-again, off-again boyfriend. When Lucky begs Rachel to help him ward off the advances of his teenager pursuer, she blackmails him into helping move her things out of the apartment she shared with her ex into a place all her own.

From there a friendship is born between two people just trying to make it through the night. Neither are living in the past or planning for the future. Until one day changes everything.



Lucky is having a hard time adjusting to civilian life.  He loves his work at the hospital but adjusting to college at 30 isn't how he imagined.  His one saving grace is his friendship with Rachel, his 3rd shift co-worker.  Rachel can't seem to stay away from Lucky and she lays down tons of rules to avoid getting hurt again.  
The chemistry between Lucky and Rachel is so far off the charts it's like the 4th of July every time they're near each other.  I love that Lucky is sexy, protective and unique in the world of military romances, he doesn't have PTSD.  Rachel is independent a bit stubbornly so.  Though, she's very likable and funny.  
To say I was engrossed in Here and Now is an understatement.  The story was well written perfectly paced and I didn't want to put it down when I was about to fall asleep at night. If you enjoy a steamy military romance with an enormous amount of heart, I highly recommend Here and Now.


Cheryl Etchison graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in journalism and news communications and has worked as a newspaper reporter, marketing coordinator and in public relations for a MLB and NHL team. Currently, she lives in Austin, Texas and is a stay at home mom to three girls. ONCE AND FOR ALL is her first novel.
