Excellent read. Looks like this is part 1 of 2 or more...

This book is very well-written by a career soldier. The story feels real as do the characters. Ms. Scott clearly either understands survivors' guilt by having lived it or she has done an outstanding job with her research.

This book is very well-written by a career soldier. The story feels real as do the characters. Ms. Scott clearly either understands survivors' guilt by having lived it or she has done an outstanding job with her research.

The back story about Trent looks like it will be just as good, and I can't wait to read it.

A side note to those (like me) who find grammar and typos an aggravating distraction: Ms. Scott knows how to write, and she knows how to type.

    Could have had a better ending!

    Loved almost everything

    I truly enjoyed this book, and would recommend it. The one thing that bothered me were that some issues went "unresolved," or at least unmentioned in the end.

    Not a bad read but could use some work

    Synopsis:
    From the war-torn streets of Baghdad to the bittersweet comforts of the home front, two wounded hearts navigate the battlefield of coming home from war in this explosive eBook original from newcomer Jessica Scott.

    Keeping his men alive is all that matters to Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison. But meeting Jen St. James the night before his latest deployment makes Shane wonder if there’s more to life than war. He leaves for Iraq remembering a single kiss with a woman he’ll never see again—until a near fatal attack lands him back at home and in her care.

    Jen has survived her own brush with death and endured its scars. And yet there’s a fire in Shane that makes Jen forget all about her past. He may be her patient, but when this warrior looks her in the eyes, she feels—for the first time in a long time—like a woman. Shane is too proud to ask for help, but for Jen, caring for him is more than a duty—it’s a need. And as Jen guides Shane through the fires of healing, she finds something she never expected—her deepest desire.

    Review:
    Well, hell, where to really begin with this. This book was a quick read and while at times it had my attention, there were others that seemed like it was just "filling" in to bump up the main story. The plot of this story really didn't hold my attention too well and I found the relationship between the two characters lacking. There were just several pieces of the puzzle that were missing from the descriptions of the injuries to both the lead characters, down on to the actual investigation that was rolling through out. I felt as though the book was tied up at the end entirely too quickly and left way too many questions unanswered. While I understand this book may be part of a series, the ending still needed some work.

    Other than that, there were a lot of humorous parts that had me laughing out loud and while I wished for more details in the story, I will still give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
