"Love Me When I'm Gone" has a steady mixture of action, adventure, and romance. So I openly recommend it to basically anyone who's into military combat and who's interested in how a long distance relationship works out. The book is about named Rob who joins the Special Forces and goes through a numerous amount of life changing events. Not to mention leaving a girlfriend back home. High school was where he met his wife, Cindy. At first things didn't kick off so well. Cindy was with one of Robs friends at the time. Wanting to confess his love for her but didn't want to ruin their relationship. As graduation came Rob and Cindy left for college but stayed in touch. After college he left for basic training and Cindy moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting and modeling career. Rob was being tested the entire time through training for the Special Forces Qualification Course to determine if he had what it takes to be a Green Beret. But, it was not till his very last part of the 2 year journey to prove that he had what it takes to become a Green Beret. After a few weeks he was assigned to the elite 1st Battalion, 10th Special Forces group in Germany. When he got to Germany he met his team. There is where his life changed. From being into walking through harsh terrain to battling behind enemies lines.

Not an easy read with the proliferation of military acronymns thrown out. I appreciate the author's service and his straightforward writing style in thefianl chapters keeps the reader engaged. the earlier chapters seem to "drag" a bit but I am sre that they rflect th reality of wha the author was going through. What any combat veteran will share describes cobat servce as hours and days of boredom punctuated by periods of sheer adrenaline.
