Contemporary Military Romance

From the war-torn streets of Baghdad to the bittersweet comforts of the home front, two wounded hearts navigate the battlefield of coming home from war in this explosive eBook original from newcomer Jessica Scott.

Keeping his men alive is all that matters to Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison. But meeting Jen St. James the night before his latest deployment makes Shane wonder if there’s more to life than war. He leaves for Iraq remembering a single kiss with a woman he’ll never see again—until a near fatal attack lands him back at home and in her care. 

Jen has survived her own brush with death and endured its scars. And yet there’s a fire in Shane that makes Jen forget all about her past. He may be her patient, but when this warrior looks her in the eyes, she feels—for the first time in a long time—like a woman. Shane is too proud to ask for help, but for Jen, caring for him is more than a duty—it’s a need. And as Jen guides Shane through the fires of healing, she finds something she never expected—her deepest desire.

  First Line(s): " What crawled up your ass?"

Favorite Line(s): “Seeing how I've held your penis in my hand, I think that puts you firmly in the not a stranger category.”

My Review: I found this book to be very real. I have never been in the military but my husband was in the Marine Corps for 8 years and was deployed to Iraq twice.... and it all struck a cord with me and the life we ( hubby and I) use to live together 7 years ago. Jessica is great at writing what she knows.

Maybe these characters pulled at my heart strings because of my past with the military BUT I think you would have to be unhuman not to let these characters pull on stings because we all know someone who can relate in someway with this story.

I think Because of You in a story full of heart, longing, honesty and I dare you to read it and not think back on it days, weeks, years later!

Kudos to Jessica Scott!
