Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too.
I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .
Before the war.
Before the ambush.
But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.
The truth is I’m lost without you.
I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .
All my love,

Boy oh Boy!!! I’ve just closed my kindle on this fantastic story and am speechless. Having been in the military life as a soldiers wife for 11 years, let me tell you, the story you read in this book is so real… I felt as though it was happening in real time. The fear each and every soldier comes to face, when they are no longer cashing a paycheck every month, they are at war fighting for our freedom and getting paid.
This story is real.
This story is emotional.
This story is what a soldier does to survive.
This story is raw.
This story is brutal.
This story is one that will rip your heart to pieces.
Yet with knowing all of this, there is a story of love. One that has the love. One that only dreams of finding love. One caught in the middle, fighting for survival.
If there is a book that will stay with me forever, this one hits the tick marks for being there! I flowed through the story word by word. Devouring each and everything happening. Sometimes I had to take a break, sometimes I laughed out loud over the jokes. But for most of the story, I was totally engrossed in what was going to happen next?
The talent of these two authors collaborating together is overwhelming. This story is flawless in writing with such a punch that it tears you apart. Kudo’s to these two authors for bringing us such a fantastic book!!!
Prepare ahead to have your heart hung, drawn and quartered by these two evil geniuses in this book. It'll not let your tears dry, even for a moment. A story about trauma and survivor's guilt that changes you forever and you never go back to the same moral parameters you were in before.
“This is my confession. I went to war loving one man and came back in love with another.
This book is a test to how much pain can your heart endure before you curl up in a ball. Ms.Evil & Ms.Cruel just smash your ribcage and pull your heart out. Heightened emotions and throbbing passions make it the most poignant read of this year. You'll never see the impending accident with blinding twists and turns this story races through at breakneck speed. Much as Seargent Christopher Paul Briggs doesn't see the humvee in front of him hit an IED and explode taking his own vehicle in the engulfing flames. He loses friends and fellow soldiers and gets captured with Staff Sergeant Kathryn Nicole Scott and Corporal Mullins. Taken hostage by radicals in Baghdad, they undergo most brutal of tortures and abuse before being rescued.
"I’ve gone and fallen for this woman. She’s married, with a child, and we are facing almost certain death. Life really is a motherfucker".
Ever since Seargent Flirts-A-Lot Briggs laid eyes on Katy, there's a spark, an instant tug and spending months together in the torture bunker just binds them together forever. A shared trauma acts as a catalyst that cements their fate. And the fact that he's a devastatingly handsome rogue with a killer dimple isn't helping matters either
His tousled hair, watered-down whiskey eyes, and full lips. Briggs isn’t the type of man you pass over; he’s a double take that makes ‘tall, dark, and handsome’ seem like an understatement.
But man plans and Gods say-hold my beer and watch this !
"Her eyes meet mine in the mirror, and for that moment, in the middle of the desert, I get lost in ocean blue."
Katy is conflicted. Her heart is chained tight in her vows to a wonderful loving husband back home. And now a new rhythm just trespasses her heart and what is she supposed to do about it ? Her loyalty and love clash in the most godforsaken circumstances and awful of places. The last words spoken with her husband on American soil are fading in volume....
“Still love me?”
And new words have replaced them like an echo in her ears and soul
“Run far and fast, dance that sexy dance, have that second baby. Smile, Scottie. Lighten up, tell jokes, live a long and happy life, for me.”
The dilemma this book puts you through had me chewing my nails to the quick and heart drumming so loudly as if it would jump out of my chest and land on the pages to hold and kiss Briggs!!!!
I was flabbergasted at times at Katy, so not believing the Bitch's luck where two wonderful amazing men loved her so completely and pined for her love in return with so much patience. But understandably she is dealing with aftermath of war, scars of the battles, physical and emotional turmoil, heart behind pulled in two directions and a thousand tonnes of crushing guilt. She just soldiers up and tries her best to keep her head above waters.
It's a struggle of garangutan proportions. Just living through this book gave me a newfound respect for army families.
" Army spouses deserve fucking medals.
They know their husbands, wives, and children made sacrifices and exactly what the cost is. They’re living it.” A-Fucking-Men !🎖
Just jump in the story, immerse yourself under words, let sentiments wash over you, fill your being with so much encompassing love, flirt with Briggs, devour Gavin's sincerity and become Katy. On the ranch, Underneath the stars, lie back under the blanket and just bliss out.
I did , you should too
That night I walk in a pasture filled with horses, next to a little boy with amber eyes and a dazzling smile. He leads me to the edge of a field as he points to the setting sun and tells me I’m free. So I run, and he runs with me.
