I read this book back in January 2014 and only now realized I hadn't posted my review here but I had on another site.
I loved this book - and all the other books in this series. Jessica Scott writes real characters; ones that will make you laugh and cry. Once I started each of the books in this series I couldn't put it down and I hated when it ended because I loved the characters.
I kind of wish that I had read the books in the order of the events as they happened instead of the order they were published but each of them does stand alone and all are wonderful to read.
From the author's website this is the recommended reading order:
Coming Home .5: I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
Coming Home 1: BECAUSE OF YOU
Coming Home 1.5: ANYTHING FOR YOU
Coming Home 2: BACK TO YOU
Coming Home 3: UNTIL THERE WAS YOU
Coming Home 4: ALL FOR YOU

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
Until There Was You is a wonderful addition to the Coming Home series by Jessica Scott. Even though it is the 2nd book in the series, it stands entirely on its own so it is not necessary whatsoever to have read the first book, Because of You.
I have the deepest respect to those that are serving or have served in our military so I was really looking forward to reading Evan and Claire’s story. We meet both characters at a gathering shortly before deploying to Iraq. Their attraction was immediate but it was the wrong place and the wrong time for these two, so aside from one fabulous kiss that evening, it will be several more years before things start to heat up.
The author has written this story in such a way that the entire story came to life for me. The portrayal of the training and military scenes were very realistic. I also felt extremely close to Claire and Evan. I felt the struggles both of them needed to overcome in order to find happiness together. Overall, this story has the perfect balance of conflict, romance, passion and even some laugh out loud moments.

Evan, Captain Evan Loehr, is a by-the-book West Point educated and trained military man. But this man has a deep dark secret that has kept him from having a true relationship in his adult life. And Evan never mixes business with pleasure.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Claire, Captain Claire Montoya, is a hard working, loyal, gutsy military woman. But this woman has a deep dark fear. Because of this fear she has not had a true relationship in years. Claire will always stand up for her friends, even if it means sacrificing herself.
When Evan and Claire are put together to train a team getting ready for deployment , the sparks fly! This mission will force them to work past their secrets and fears possibly leading them to find their hearts.
The chemisty and fireworks between Evan and Claire starts from the very first chapter and never slows down. This book is more than romance, it covers some very real life issues. Dealing with guilt, abandonments, and alcoholism to name a few. All these make Until There Was You impossible to put down.
I loved how Claire stood her ground and was incredibly loyal to her true friends, even in their dire times. She was even willing to sacrifice her career to help them out of some tough spots. And Evan, oh Evan, he was amazing! Realizing Claire just needed to trust and not giving up or letting go til he got that trust, even though it would have been easier to give up and walk away.
The only thing I didn’t like about the story was that there wasn’t more pages to it. But the ending was perfect. Anyone who likes a man in uniform who is willing to fight for what he wants should absolutely read this book.
After reading book one in the Coming Home series, Because of You, I knew I had to read Until There Was You when Jessica Scott asked me.

Fear & Honor
For Captains Evan Loehr and Claire Montoya a manditory fun night for the hail and farewell of departing troops at Fort Hood Texas held the promise for something more neither one was willing to take a chance on. However through time and events beyond their control hope began to flicker in hearts and minds. Will they be willing to lay the past to rest and grab hold of the future they both have only dreamed of. Or will a training exercise gone wrong be more than their respective loyalties be able to overcome? Find out in the newest release by Jessica Scott, you won't be disappointed.Was this review helpful?
