Review: Because of You by Jessica Scott

Feb 21, 2012

A Loveswept 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.
I gave this book a 4
Because Of You by Jessica Scott is an unfeigned account of the internal turmoil of a soldier and his journey to find happiness. Scott has created rich characters that will connect with readers on a wondrous emotional level.   The horrors of war echo in Shane's soul, creating a sentimental barrier between the one woman who can help heal him. Tortured souls will find love and forgiveness in this beautiful story.  I highly recommend this book.
