This book was EVERYTHING!!!!!
It was the the rawest, most tragically heartbreaking story i have ever read and my soul bled from page 1 till the very end, but it was oh so good.
This story is about war and how Amongst the devastated agony war can bring, we forget that these brave soldiers do not have the liberty to leave it there, it comes home with them and so many are not lucky enough to come out the other side with their lives.
We meet the beautiful, head strong, loving wife, mother and soldier staff sergeant Katy Scott who is up for her first deployment to Baghdad after signing enlistment papers 8 years ago. she is a medic. First day she meets the gorgeous, hot, alpha, funny and sometimes inappropriately flirty Sergeant Christopher Briggs. you see instant attraction and friendship that changes in a blink from shared horrific brutality into a connection so profound it truly is astounding.
I do not want to give to much of the story away because trust me, you really want to read it yourself. But I will tell you to be prepared because it is soul destroying, tragically beautiful and really hard to read at times with the agony, but you will love every second of reading it. The secondary characters are also amazing and beautifully written.
My heart and soul will never be the same and I will forever be thinking of, talking about and loving this book.
This isn't your classic love triangle ( oh I didn't mention that at first) ooops sorry.... yes there is, between Katy, Briggs and Gavin (Katy's beautiful husband) I was so torn on who I wanted her to end up with and that has never happened to me before. just goes to show the level of brilliance that these 2 writers bring with this phenomenal book. I wanted MY happily ever after in the form of all of them living together in one happy family. (insert sigh) .
Trauma hits, sometimes with the inability to move forward or heal until you face your fears, let it all out and come to the realization that what you first thought you needed to survive, could totally change faces.
I ugly cried through and for days after this was finished and know in my heart of hearts, this book will stay with me forever. I am so very thankful to the beautifully and equally as talented Heather M Orgeron and Kate Stewart for bringing this story to light. It was necessary to hear while so very hard to take . I wouldn't have changed a single thing about it.
If I could give this masterpiece more than 5 stars, I would as it deserves that and so much more.
Do yourselves a favor and get this book ASAP believe me, you will not be disappointed .
