Because of you - Jessica Scott - Book Review

Contemporary Military Romance
From the war-torn streets of Baghdad to the bittersweet comforts of the home front, two wounded hearts navigate the battlefield of coming home from war in this explosive eBook original from newcomer Jessica Scott.

Keeping his men alive is all that matters to Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison. But meeting Jen St. James the night before his latest deployment makes Shane wonder if there’s more to life than war. He leaves for Iraq remembering a single kiss with a woman he’ll never see again—until a near fatal attack lands him back at home and in her care.

Jen has survived her own brush with death and endured its scars. And yet there’s a fire in Shane that makes Jen forget all about her past. He may be her patient, but when this warrior looks her in the eyes, she feels—for the first time in a long time—like a woman. Shane is too proud to ask for help, but for Jen, caring for him is more than a duty—it’s a need. And as Jen guides Shane through the fires of healing, she finds something she never expected—her deepest desire.



My thoughts .

Because of you is about two souls finding each other - learning to live with the damage that war has brought and also pain of different circumstances. Learning to live, love and move on even though life has not dealt you the cards you wanted. Learning to lean on others for help in your time of need and learning to move on no matter what life has dealt you.

I’m a little in the dark on the military sides of things, having no one close to me deployed or in the military scene I found that Jessica’s descriptions were enough to keep me in the loop.

A well delivered story, with a deep plot, wonderfully crafted characters, with depth and definition, witty characters that will make you smile and chapters that flow smoothly till the last page has been turned.

I read this in one sitting from front page till back and really enjoyed it... It really sucked me in, brought tears to my eyes, and grabbed at my emotions. Jessica has put forth her emotions well, all descriptions easily envisaged and put forth. A military romance - filled with love, hope, friendship, courage, loyalty and learning.

The romance between Shane and Jen was slow and gradual, the love scenes heartfelt and enough for all those who enjoy a little romance in there reads. Id love to have seen more love between Shane and Jen but saying this the story was short where Jessica developed the love and story within the pair.

I enjoyed all the characters much so.... Carponti was my absolute FAVORITE...

Jessica has written the story where we will surely see more of the secondary characters in the next instalment. I look forward to seeing Laura’s story and see where she takes us.

** Because of you ** is a story about friendships and hardships, about letting go , healing and moving forward. It’s about overcoming obstacles that seem unimaginable. A quick heartfelt military romance that will pique your attention from end to finish.



Jessica Scott has delivered a wonderful debut novel here - I will certainly be looking out for more of her future works.


Rated 4/5
