Publisher's Summary

Savannah St. Claire grew up in a town where she was constantly bullied. Her only friends were brothers Billy and Travis Blue. The three of them were inseparable.

Billy Blue joined the Army when he turned 18 and was deployed to Afghanistan soon after. Four years later, Billy returns home and things are forever changed for this man who heroically fought for his country. He not only has to overcome his physical limitations, but he must confront his feelings for Savannah. With his confidence broken, he comes to the realization that there could be no way she would ever love him enough to look past the scars he possesses both inside and out.

What happens when two brothers love the same woman? Can broken hearts be mended? Will true love prevail above all else?

    We meet a broken hearted Savannah, who was left behind by army boyfriend Billy. Billy left making Savannah believed he didn't love her any longer. Even after four years had passed, Savannah is still deeply in love with Billy. Hoping that one day Billy would come back and tell her he made the biggest mistake of her life, but he never did. A very good military love story.

    "Good quick listen"

    Who doesn't like a man in uniform? Nicole Garcia does a good job of bringing this story to life. It's a little bit angsty and a little bit steamy, but sweet at the same time. A second-chance story with a nice HEA. Definitely worth a listen.

    "Good Listen"
    Would you try another book from Nicole Garcia and/or Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ?

    Yes. The book was good. I really love Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross and they are the reason I wanted to listen to this book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    There were some things I didn't like but they are personal preference. I think the book will be enjoyable to others the way it is.


    Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross – was your favorite?

    I would love a story on Travis. He was a character that really stuck with me.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book. It was a short listen but it was enjoyable. I liked the Billy and Savannah as a couple. I liked the resolution to the story. I would definitely listen to another book from these narrators and would also be open to another book by this author. I would recommend this book if you want a short listen and a sweet story.

    "Compelling yet not to heavy"


    I really enjoyed this book. This was a different book by Nicole Garcia than what I am used to. The characters felt more real. Not that they don't normally, but I really felt like so many soldiers and families could identify with the characters. I thought she did a great job of bringing the seriousness of veterans, military families, and what they face, into a sweet love story. It wasn't overly intense and she doesn't beat you over the head with it, but makes you think about the real life lives of these people. Great job. And, of course the narration by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross was wonderful. This is nice, sweet, short read that doesn't disappoint. I was provided this audiobook as an ARC.

    "Wonderful story"

    I loved this story. I have always loved when veterans find their happy ending (especially seeing as I live with one). This is one of those stories that I will always be completely behind. I loved how well Kai and Wen did when reading this and how they made you feel and understand a bit better what our men go through. I loved how Nicole wrote the story and you could feel so much for Billy and Savannah and get an idea of everything they felt and went thorough together. This was such a great story I cant really express it.

    Story
    "Hooray for the Red, White and Billy Blue!"
    What did you love best about Saving Private Blue?

    It's a great love story - and who doesn't love a guy in uniform?


    What did you like best about this story?

    The angsty part maybe? You know how you want to just kick someone for pushing the one they love away and tell them to snap out of it. I loved Savannah and was pulling for her to get her guy. Billy? Gaww....what a guy (stubborn as hell, albeit, but still <3 )


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the narration...this duo has an audible chemistry that translates into the 'pages' of the story. Of course it helps that they were given a great piece of work to narrate!

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    "Nicole Garcia is one of my all time favorites!"

    Nicole Garcia does audio books specifically for me! or at least I tell myself that. There short, there sexy, the narrators sound amazing! its the whole package for me. This is the third book I've listened too by this author and I absolutely can't wait to listen to more. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
