"You make me forget everything else.
Luke Collier knows his duty. A marine corps combat medic, his job is to save lives - not satisfy his own desires. Megan Trayhern is his corpsman, but the beautiful redhead can't be anything more. Luke has already given his heart once, and he understands the toll the corps can take on a woman, on a romance…on a marriage.
Megan has her own mission. While she doles out medical care in the nearby village, she's also gathering intel. It's a dangerous assignment that the onetime military brat undertakes without fear. She needs to focus - and be careful - and the growing passion she feels for Luke can only put them both at risk. Honor binds them both, but the heart gives its own orders....

The writer does an adequate job describing life on a base in Afghanistan, but doesn't include much on combat tactics or action-filled scenes (after all, you can't judge a book by its cover). The two love interests are very sweet and honest. If you are looking for hot love scenes, you won't find them in this book. Sweetness and kindness in trying times is the overriding theme of this story.
The writing is pedestrian in that the story's plot is constructed well, but without twists and with a sappy ending; in addition, the sentences are written competently, but much of the dialog is not realistic. The narrator's style fit the writer's style perfectly, i.e. adequate.
If you like tame, predictable, and happy stories (nothing wrong with that), you will love this book.
