Publisher's Summary

Suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Alex returned home from Iraq with tons of baggage. Though he'd been warned transitioning back to civilian life wouldn't be easy, he had no idea had difficult it could really be...

Jasalyn was grateful to Alex for saving her brother's life in Iraq and made it her personal mission to try and heal the broken soldier. What she hadn't counted on was his racist father and the demons Alex fought daily inside his own head.

Will Jasalyn be able to save the shattered soldier and find love for herself in the process?

Ehhhh.

Overall it was a decent story. Some of the conversations and inner monologues were a reach. I would hear certain reactions or hear what jasaline was thinking and cringe like “really? That’s a stretch”

The narrator wasn’t good at capturing the tone of certain phrases and didn’t use the correct enunciation at times. For example listening to the words you could tell the writer was trying to convey sarcasm but she spoke it flatly or with an aggressive undertone.

The story line was ok but a lot of the build up was very anticlimactic! Are we to believe his racist father just rolled over immediately? I thought when they located Alex there would be a scuffle or a big blowout where he told his father all
The things he never had. But... nothing.

Jasaline’s character was not very well written either. First she’s super patient with Alex then randomly forceful and whiny? She’s super shy and practically a virgin but refers to her vagina as a cunt??? C’mon!
Oh and TO BE CLEAR! NO WOMAN WILL EVER CALLED HER VAGINA A CUNT! Wtf????!!! Poor attempt at trying to throw a dirty word in there to “sexy” the storyline up!

Not for me.

I'm guessing young author with limited experience. This could have been a 10th grade creative writing assignment.

Narration was also bad. No variation in characters or gender. And she pronounced "ask/s" as "ax". Drove me crazy.

sweet story, touching and steamy

Enjoyed this story very much, will get more from this author. The portrayal of the emotionally wounded warrior had me in tears. unexpected bandage twist.

Nice for the Price

A very Short, but sweet love story.
Alex served with Jasalyn's brother in Iraq. He returns physically intact, but with PSDS. She picks him up at the airport, there's instant chemistry. But due to his emotional state, and the fact that his father is a blatant bigot, he's hesitant to pursue her.
I must have blinked. But I have no idea how everything was OVERCOME but they fall in love and get married. the End.
Oh Well. I never like to give the whole story away. But for $2.99 you ether will buy it or you won't. It's basically a pleasant time waster.
