Publisher's Summary

Briggs, 

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. Before you. 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,
Scottie

Wow

I hesitated to buy this book because of Details but if your doing the same DON”T. This book is awesome!
Narrators are perfection, as always. My best book in 2019 and that is saying a lot!

Female voice

I am struggling to listen to this because the female sounds like a robot even though the synopsis of the book sounds interesting.

Read this now!!

Wow! Wow! Wow! This book was literally everything. Get ready for the biggest emotional rollercoaster ever (this is not an exaggeration either). I felt so many things for Katy, Briggs and Gavin (and even little Noah). I cannot begin to imagine how these authors were even able to write this story. I floved the epilogue it was amazing!!! The narration, by Tracy Marks and Aaron Sherlock, was spot on and couldn't have been better.

I need my heart back...10 stars

Only occasionally do I come across the book that so pulls on my heart that I feel I need revovery time after finishing. What a truly AWESOME story. I couldn't stop listening. This book will go to the list of my favorites. You drew me in and made me feel the heartache of Katie, Gavin and Chris and my heart broke with theirs. The narration was outstanding as always by my 2 favorite narrators, Tracy and Aaron.

This was a miss for me

I really wanted to like this one. I am a huge fan of Kate Stewart. But I just couldn't get into the love story. I thought the first part of the book where Katie and Briggs are on a base was fascinating. And all they go through was heartbreaking and I understood it changed them. But the story just drug after that. And I was so hurt for Gavin that I will be honest, I didn't finish the story. I got to the last 30% and I gave up. The majority of the story the two characters you are somewhat rooting for aren't even in contact. And the female narrator is so robotic I just didn't feel anything for Katie. So I am so sad to say this was not the book for me. But, again, I am a huge fan of Kate Stewart.

Gavin, Katy & Briggs

Audible review. Triple POV. Standalone; no action until the last 10%. I love this story and I was looking forward to the narration but while the story is a 5 star read the narration falls in the negative numbers. Aaron Shedlock is tasked with reading 2 different POV and, while he reads well and has a nice voice, this is his worst narration. If the authors hadn't specified whose POV was being read at the start of their chair, the listener would have absolutely no idea which make character was "speaking." It was unfortunate that he didn't differentiate by at least using two different tones. Tracy Marks is my least liked narrator; either you listen at speed 1.0 and hear her read painfully slowly growling her way through or you sped it up and get a halting growly robot voice. Trigger warnings: war; POW; murder; starvation; torture; rape; and cheating.

Military stories always strike a cord within me. This one definitely hit a new note. Within the pages of this book are great love, war, death, terror, forgiveness and healing. Thank you to both authors for your care and respect for the military, soldiers and their loved ones.

Katy and her best friend, Mullins, head to Baghdad for their first deployment as nurses in the Army. Katy, aka Scott/Scottie, leaves behind the only man she's ever loved, Captain Gavin Walsh, and their 6 year old son, Noah. This story is definitely Katy's story but these authors shine a brilliant light on those in her orbit.

Gavin is a career Soldier in the Army when he meets and falls for Katy, and boy does he fall. He's willing to sacrifice his happiness for hers. (I know I fell for Gavin because of the way he loved her.)

Sergeant Christopher Briggs, aka Briggs, is an infantry man already in Baghdad when Katy & Mullins arrive at his base. He's a soldier through and through and very much a single ladies' man. He and his 2 best friends, Jones & Morrero, form a quick friendship with Katy & Mullins.

Everything changes for the previously mentioned 7 characters when Briggs, Jones, Morrero, Mullins & Katy leave the base on a humanitarian mission. The shock as the story unfolds never seems to lessen. I felt every emotion as I read the pages. I honestly didn't want the book to end. I'm so glad this isn't a series because I like where the authors left them all.

Thank you ladies for writing this story. JP

So. Heavy.

Not sure how I feel about this... it's well written and I get it, but I absolutely hate Katie and how everything pans out. I have nothing nice to say about her.
Trigger Warning for combat, becoming a POW, rape, PTSD, and cheating.
