I am uncertain why this book received a negative review. I recommend the reader use own judgment to
read this book, will not be disppointed.  **vrnb**

I found myself skimming just to get through this story. I did not care for the male lead in the story. He seemed like a jerk and the female lead was weak. Not my kind of romance.

    Was ok for free.

    Was an ok story for free. I did not care for the male lead in the story. He seemed like a jerk and the female lead was weak. Not my kind of romance. The story line and writing seemed choppy at times, and I got tired of Mariah's worrying over her husband's ex-girlfriend.

    Just a Little Lie

    JUST A LITTLE JAILBAIT
    This ended better than it does in real life. Buyer Beware! Okay seriously I really enjoyed this story. People tend to forget that a hero hurt is still a hero. And one of the hardest battles you'll fight is against your own self doubt and fear of failure. This was really sweet.

    Could have done without all the whining....

    I really enjoyed the concept behind this book, wounded soldier marrying his pen pal while literally on his deathbed, its morbid and romantic all at the same time. I don't agree with other reviewers about Sol's character, I don't think he was domineering at all, mad at the world because of his injuries is understandable but he wasn't a mean or inconsiderate man.

    Mariah's character on the other hand was so very annoying, I wanted to stop reading the book plenty of times because her incessant whining was just grating on my nerves, but then I had to remind myself that she is basically still just a teenager married to man almost 11 years her senior, she's young and has the mentality of a young person despite her 'genius' mind.

    I think this book would have been better if she wasn't so young and if the author wrote less about Mariah's whining and added more action hence the scenes between her and Desiree and Sol and Desiree, those were just mentioned in passing, but readers enjoy a good jealous scene between couples and their exes....the story could have flowed better.

    FYI: This book is NOT all about sex, there are like two or three written scenes, very under detailed and the rest of the sex is implied not written. Also this story is not a standalone, it is part of a series, though I don't think you need to read all the books to understand them.

    It was an ok story for free. It seemed at times choppy, and got tired of Mariah's worrying over her husband's ex-girlfriend. Glad I got for free and did not pay for it.
