    Book 3 and the final chapter of the LA Metro series was a great read Like book 2 this is of a super slow burn because there are some very valid reasons as to why both Dale and Logan are so guarded Having experienced some very traumatic events in their personal lives they both have a tendency of keeping everyone at arms length literallyLike LA Metro and In a Heartbeat I read through this in what felt like a single breath The author does an amazing job of keeping you hooked and not once did it feel like the story dragged on It was refreshing to read about these two women who have an abundance of physical and emotional scars The story felt so much real because there was no mention of a woman in perfect shape with perfect fashion sense that had the perfect job People simply aren't perfect but this story shows that despite that it's still very much possible to find or create your own happily ever afterThough the main characters from the first two books make small cameo's this book can be read as a standalone It ends for me with a solid 4 rating

    I have to admit I was a little apprehensive picking this one up since I loved books 1 2 of the series so much but there was nothing to worry about Nolan hit another home run with this 3rd installment to the series and I wish there were out there for me to read nowJust like the first 2 books of the series this is a slow burn romance but MCs Dale and Logan have some very understandable reasons for not wanting to be involved with each other based on their traumatic pasts I honestly wondered if the story line would get a bit repetitive with this being the third in a series involving the same basic location but it was completely fresh and new Actually I found myself enjoying this one even than the first twoJust like the first 2 books I inhaled this one in a single sitting Nolan's writing style is very engaging and I was completely hooked from the very beginning The story didn't drag in any way even with the abundance of both physical and emotional baggage that both MCs dealt with It was refreshing to read about characters who weren't physically perfect one is even an amputee Their struggles felt real and as a reader I felt even connected to them because they weren't so perfect physically or emotionallyI've mentioned books 1 and 2 a few times now but you don't need to actually read those novels first if you're thinking about picking this one up Several characters from the previous books do appear in cameo roles but this book can be read as a standalone if you wish I highly recommend all three books in this series though they're great reads My one and only complaint is that this series isn't longer 425 starsMany thanks to Ylva for providing me with a free copy in exchange for my honest review

    Note When I first read this I didn't rate or write a review A few years ago I added it and rated it from memory Upon re read I've lowered it to 45 Stars It doesn't uite make my current reuirements 5 Stars Read my 2019 review for the audiobook

    45 Stars for the audiobook narrated by Angela Dawe 4 Star narration I first read the ebook in 2016 Nolan originally posted the LA Metropolitan trilogy online #1 #2 were eventually published except for #3 “Entwined Lives” which was a continuation story of Sam and Riley and Kim and Jess All three online stories were removed by reuest of the author when she published LA MetroLA Metro #3 “Wounded Souls” focuses on ER doctors Ashlee Logan and Ex Navy doctor Dale Parker While the main characters of books 1 2 make appearances Jess Kim and Riley Sam this book could be read as a standalone as the focus is on Logan and Dale But I must add Logan’s dog Drake as the other main character He plays and integral part in this story Standalone or not I highly recommend the previous two books on their own merits Logan who NEVER goes by Ashlee is a Temp doctor She works for an agency that places physicians where they are needed for a few weeks filling in for the resident doctors while they are on vacation or medical leaves For the last two years Logan has been traveling all over the US in a RV trailer with her Great Dane Drake This six week stop is at the Los Angeles Metro ER department’s night shift Logan is an excellent doctor but a loner never making friends in the short time she spends at each stop While Jess McKenna is the overall head of the ER Dr Dale Parker is in charge of the night shift She is an excellent under pressure and tough on her residents as what you would expect from an in charge ER doctor And so begins this well written slow burn romance Despite their flaws both characters are very likable Dale is able to break down enough of the Logan’s walls she has erected to become good friends However despite their mutual attraction becoming than just friends is held back by the secrets kept by both parties Dale was injured in Afghanistan and she hides her scars and injury from her work colleagues I’m assuming Jess knows Dale volunteers at the VA hospital and it’s the one place where she feels uninhibited about her body issues We don’t find out exactly why Logan never sets down roots until later in the story One of the driving forces that brings these two Wounded Souls together believe it or not is Logan’s Great Dane Drake Through circumstances Drake and Dale’s best friend Casey play a part in getting these two togetherWhile I liked this book in both ebook audio formats I enjoyed the previous books in the series LA Metro and In a Heartbeat But you can’t go wrong reading this bookI’m not sure if Nolan is actively writing This was her last book and it was first published in 2016 I sure hope she continues to write new stories I wouldn’t mind reading about Casey who deserves a HEA

    A nice continuation of the LA Metro series but with very little participation of the characters from previous installments So little that Wounded Souls can work as a standalone That's too bad but doesn't diminish the uality of this story and its main characters Not perfect body main characters are in fact very refreshing in the sea of Divine ProportionGolden Ratio characters of lesfic Dale and Logan are kind people with a lot of baggage from the past They are truly wounded souls as the title indicates The good thing is that Nolan uite successfully leads her protagonists to their happy ending without unrealistically reducing real life problems and situationsI recommend this book and am looking forward to the next installment in this series4 starsARC provided by publisher via NetGalley

    I actually felt a little sad as I finished reading Wounded Souls LA Metro 3 by RJ Nolan I’m sad because I’ve become invested in the characters and the stories in this series and I know that this is the last in from this series These characters have become like good friends that I’m afraid I may not see againIn Wounded Souls we are again at LA Metropolitan Hospital where we meet two doctors who work in Emergency Former Navy doctor Dale Parker has worked the night shift in the ER since she’s physically recovered from wounds she sustained in the desert of Afghanistan Ashlee Logan is hired as a temporary ER doctor to cover a doctor who is forced to go on an early maternity leave Logan has worked her way from Boston to LA over the past two years with only her Great Dane Drake as her companion Both women are still recovering from traumas that have changed their lives completely in many ways both physically and emotionally Both are also dealing with insecurities that could affect a budding attraction and possible relationship between the twoI really enjoyed reading their story It is a heartwarming tale that will leave you smiling and possibly shedding tears at the same time Ms Nolan did a superb job developing these characters with their back stories and the effects those pasts have on their present I loved how the secondary characters their friends co workers and even Drake the Great Dane helped the two overcome their pasts and come together as a couple It’s just a beautiful story and is going into my favorites folderI always believe that if you are going to read a book from a series you should start at the beginning of the series and work your way through I encourage you to do that with the LA Metro series They are all great stories However I will mention that this book actually could be read as a standalone story The characters from the other books do show up here as secondary characters but it is not necessary to know their stories to read this book I am very glad that I read the books and stories in order and I encourage you to do the sameI received this book as an ARC from Ylva Publishing for an honest review

    35 StarsI was reluctant to read this third book in RJ Nolan’s LA Metro series but when others assured me it could be read as a standalone novel I took the chance Characters from the two previous novels do make brief appearances in Wounded Souls but this is Dale and Logan’s book heart and soul There is a lot to like in this novel RJ Nolan has a nice descriptive writing style The scenes with Dale and Logan working in the emergency department and the VA rehab centre feel authentic There is enough knowledge transfer to inform but not bore the reader That takes talent How Logan manages to live her nomadic life in a 24 ft recreational vehicle with a Great Dane as her sidekick is also handled honestly and in an entertaining way I appreciated the author pointing out the challenges owning a giant dog can have for its owner I looked forward to every scene with Drake He is the third main character in this love story Nolan takes her time developing the relationship between Logan and Dale and the reader is given plenty of insight into the characters their pasts and their anxieties Body image issues merge with ghosts from the past to make the choice of title for this novel so fitting When all is resolved the HEA we readers are hoping for is rewarding Those of us who don’t fit the perfect lesbian leads in most lesfic romance novels applaud this daring challenge to present real women in a romantic setting Well done I did have some issues with the story Logan comes across as cold and distant for a good portion of the novel hiding a secret from her past and I found myself struggling to see what Dale could see in her detached co worker Logan’s reluctance to explain her reasons for her behaviour did not jibe with the otherwise confident woman view spoiler On one hand Logan is angry that Dale withheld the fact that Casey is a double amputee “Whatever it is just spit it out” 2758 and yet when Dale tries to pull information from Logan regarding her past Logan shuts down and refuses to answer her hide spoiler

    I thoroughly enjoyed Wounded Souls Not having read the previous two books in the LA Metro series this was a perfect standalone book From what other reviewers have mentioned this has cameo appearances from couples from the previous booksWhilst the main characters had flaws hang ups and low self esteem they were real They were both facing their own personal demons and together they were able to accomplish themI loved the medical casesjargon description of the VA hospital and learning about various programs offered to the wounded veterans Casey and Drake were great supporting characters alsoAll in all a great book 45 starsARC provided by publisher via NetGalley

    And another 4Update I was interrupted while writing my review and stopped at the first sentence I've said it before I love the way R J Nolan doesn't shy away from sensitive issues and how delicately she deals with them Some of the issues she decides to write about should make her books difficult to read but they don't they just make the characters stronger Very empowering
