Welcome Home, Soldier by Deanna Wadsworth

Clay and Daniel fell in love as enlisted men during Desert Shield, but Don't Ask Don't Tell meant they had to keep it secret. After Clay's convoy was ambushed, PTSD changed him, and their relationship ended in a horrible fight on Christmas Eve.

Twenty-five years later, they've reconnected on Facebook, and Clay finds out Daniel will be alone on Christmas Eve. Impulsively, he sets out for Daniel's hometown of Gilead, Ohio--where Daniel is now the mayor--to surprise him with a visit. But a blizzard strikes and Clay wrecks his car. All hope of seeing Daniel is lost--until a mysterious old man named Nick offers Clay a ride.

The weight of past wounds and the scars of war might make their reunion awkward, but Clay is willing to take the risk to win back his lost love. Despite a lifetime of disappointing holidays, Clay hopes that this soldier is finally coming home for Christmas.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2017 Advent Calendar "Stocking Stuffers."

About the Author

Deanna Wadsworth might be a best-selling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and will often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes quiet times in her garden when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships has always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.

3.5 stars- Welcome Home, Soldier was a lovely story that followed two past loves as they reconnected on Christmas. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of chemistry- physical and emotional- that unfurled on the pages of this short. The heroes of Welcome Home, Soldier are older men, which is always a nice change of pace, who dated 25 years ago while in the Army. Because that was during the time of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, their relationship had been in secret. The way the military experience and life factored into Daniel and Clay’s relationship and break-up added an interesting conflict and backstory for their characters. I was pleased when Daniel and Craig talked through the issues they faced while together and in the years they spent apart. Not only did this add more depth to their individual characters, but it also made the resolution believable and the couple’s future promising. Some of the dialogue was a little stilted but, for the most part, the book flowed well and had good pacing. My only hang-up that kept this from a solid 4 stars was the cheese factor, especially when it piled on toward the end. Still, I enjoyed this couple, their story, and their Christmastime reunion. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
