My husband is retired military, so I've always been a sucker for a good military romance. This story drew me right in. Jesse got dumped in the worst way. She didn't have time for a broken heart. She picked herself up, and went to work as a waitress to work a double shift. Before the night ended she ended up passing out and landing in the arms of Brock, a handsome Navy sailor.
From that point they became friends. He had to deploy shortly after, and they emailed daily learning more about each other every day. That friendship turned into love once he was home.
Brock had some past issues to deal with. He had withdrew from his family many years before because of a tragic accident. He thought his family blamed him. They didn't, they just wanted to be a part of his life. I really felt the emotions when he visited with his family. That part really pulled on my heartstrings!
I loved this story, it was funny, filled with love, and emotions, and was also very sweet in places.
Sample from chapter one
How embarrassing to fall flat at his feet. Maybe if she stayed very still, he and the others gathered around would leave her to expire of mortification on her own. Yeah, she thought as listened to the advice being jockeyed back and forth, that was her best course of action. She has a good chance of the earth opening up and swallowing her whole. This was California after all. Where was a good earthquake when you really needed it? "She's not responding," another voice stated. "Time to call 911.she needs to go to the hospital."
