I just finished this author's debut book and I loved it! I'm always a sucker for a military hero & I also love the stories about the heroine loving her brother's friend so this one was perfect! Very well-written and engaging, I didn't want to put it down. I am looking forward to more of Carrie Nichols' books! I highly recommend this one!

This is the first book I read by this author, and it will not be the last one. I really loved this one. The story centers around Marine Sgt Riley Cooper and Meg McBride the girl that stole his heart. The night before he left to serve his country, they made love . He never contacted her again because he did not think he was good enough for such a special girl. That left Meg heartbroken and unbeknown to him, pregnant. He returns to the town he had fond memories and where Meg lives since he has a month of leave due to an injury after an incident that affected him not only physically but also emotionally when he loses one of his men. When he sees Meggie, he now sees a woman and the attraction is still there. But Meg has secrets and fears what would happen when he finds out . It’s a story that will touch you deeply. It’s heartbreaking, heartwarming, insightful, thought provoking and at times bring tears to your eyes. Not only is the story engaging and the characters are well developed, but I most appreciate the other aspects the author brings to our attention. The fact that how we are treated by our parents when we are children , will affect how we see ourselves and life when we are adults. That we need to be reminded of the sacrifices made not only by the brave men and women that serve our country , but also those left behind. For that, thank you , Ms Nichols. Looking forward to more books by this talented author. I was gifted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

I have been looking forward to this book since I read the first chapter in the SYTYCW competition years ago. It didn’t disappoint. This is a reunion romance which is my jam. Nearly six years ago, marine Riley Cooper spent his last night before shipping out with Meg McBride, the kid sister of his best friend. Any idea of coming home to her was pushed away once he experienced war in Afghanistan. Meg loved Riley forever and for a brief moment she had hope something might come of it. Until her letters telling him about the consequences of their night together were returned unopened. Now Riley is back and Meg has to finally tell him what he should have known six years ago. This is a nice little story set in a small town in Vermont. Meg has settled there with her daughter making a good life. The arrival of Riley threatens that future. I really enjoyed it and the ending was satisfying. Also the daughter had an excellent name. ARC review supplied by the author.
