    2.5 Stars
    This is the third book that I have read by this author. With all of the glowing reviews, I thought I'd give her another chance, however I am now reminded why I didn't really like the other two books I've read by her.

    Let me being with the positives. I liked the general plot of the book. It's a bit predictable, but the suicide note is a twist and not something I've seen done before. I also really liked the characters. Jenn is sweet and smart and Shane seems like a nice guy. Plus, he's a sexy military man and you can't really go wrong with that.

    What really bothers me about this book (and the others) is the flow. It just seems as if there is no depth to the writing. Events happen out of seemingly nowhere, because there's no buildup that takes you to the event, it just kind of happens. For example, in the part where Jenn questions their future together, he hastily gets off the phone with her thinking she wants to break up. A few paragraphs later, he says he should apologize and let her know that he sees a future with her. I guess he ends up doing it because the next thing you know it flashes to a month or so later and they're still together saying that they love each other. In another part, he seeks out his father, whom his relationship with is apparently the cause of a lot of his issues in life. That's pretty much all that is said about it, that he meets him and "understands" him better. Well, what does he understand exactly? Why did his father not take care of him after his mother died? Why has he never contacted him? Why was he gone all the time and so angry in Shane's memories? This is one of the major plot points of the book and we are given nothing, just that he apparently has worked it all out. The entire book was like this. To be perfectly honest, this just seems like half of a book. I need more as a reader to get involved in the story and the characters. I need to know the details. I guess that's what I'm saying this style of writing is lacking for me, the details.

    I give this book 2.5 stars, because while I didn't particularly enjoy the writing, I did finish it and I did like some things about it. It had potential, but it just didn't do it for me. I certainly admire the ability to write a book and put yourself out there as an author, so I hope she doesn't take this personally. It is, after all, only one opinion.

    WHERE ARE THE PROOFREADERS????

    Interesting premise, likeable and relatable main characters, some snappy dialogue, knowledge of military procedure.

    BUT, the major grammar errors, flip-flopping between first and third person mid sentence, and overuse of words (such as "smirk" which was used to describe a whole gamut of emotions) really detracted from the story.
