On Higher Ground


I have missed Dax and Beck so much but nothing could prepare me for the emotions that hit me with On Higher Ground. To say Melissa Collins has outdone herself with this one would be an understatement. This is an amazing follow up to On Sold Ground. Dax and Beck are just the most amazing couple. Made perfectly for one another, shaped by their pasts but brave enough to face the future, as long as they have each other.

If you haven’t read On Solid Ground you have to meet Dax and Beck. Living beyond the pasts they each have but love holding them close enough to see the future, you just can’t help but fall even more in love with these two men.

Dax is still learning to deal with his PTSD from the war has found everything he needs in his life, but he is just waiting for the other shoe to drop because he is convinced that one day Beck is going to realize that it’s just too much. Beck, still reeling from his past and the pain, knows the only thing keeping him sane is Dax. But is it possible that they will each be able to overcome the darkness of their past and move on to the future without something or someone getting in the way?

Melissa Collins has once again brought to light the problems with PTSD, but she also has taken the time to show us teach us a thing or two about dealing with it from the sufferer’s point of view. It is powerful to say the least. But this book is about so much more. It is about creating a life with someone new and letting go of all the things that cause so much pain, and for Dax, that includes figuring out how to deal with his PTSD so it doesn’t get in the way of enjoying his family.

One of my favorite lines from this book is one that Melissa has used many in the past year, “Love is Love.” It seems so simple but it can be so complex. Of course the line typically refers to the guys being gay, but I think with this book, it is so much more. It is loving one another despite the past, with hope for the future and the love of a little girl who thinks the world of both of her dads. Love is love. Love is powerful, love is strength and with the right person, love is possible. Dax and Beck have that possibility if they can only embrace it.

This book is the perfect follow up to On Solid Ground. It is a great read and one you don’t want to let go of when it is over because Dax and Beck are what dreams and love are made of. I fall in love with Melissa’s writing with each book I read and each time it is for different reason, this book is no exception. Dax and Beck are made for one another and this book shows and makes you feel just how much they need one another forever.

Tackling tough subjects and still finding love. Melissa Collins never disappoints! On Higher Ground is fabulous!
