He's in for the fight of his life . . .

Army captain Trent Davila loved his wife, Laura, and their two beautiful children. But when he almost lost his life in combat, something inside him died. He couldn't explain the emptiness he felt or bridge the growing distance between him and his family—so he deployed again. And again. And again . . . until his marriage reached its breaking point. Now, with everything on the line, Trent has one last chance to prove to his wife that he can be the man she needs . . . if she'll have him

. . . to win back his only love.

Laura is blindsided when Trent returns home. Time and again, he chose his men over his family, and she's just beginning to put the pieces of her shattered heart back together. But when Trent faces a court martial on false charges, only Laura can save him. What begins as an act of kindness to protect his career inflames a desire she thought long buried—and a love that won't be denied. But can she trust that this time he's back to stay?

Shel: You know I suppose in some ways readers would find this predictable and there are some of the usual suspects: a soldier trying to deal 
with the struggle of being at home after seeing what he's seen at war; a soldier who feels more comfortable in the chaos of war than in the
quiet and mundane life at home.  But, it felt less forced than other military romance reads--the emotional landscape that Jessica Scott has her 
characters traverse felt authentic. 

Both Trent and Laura struggled with the consequences of him going to war and it's the struggle for them to try to "reset" to normal that we 
plunged into. How will Trent handle being present in their lives? Will Laura be able to get over her anger and hurt at his lies and betrayal? In 
the midst of them trying to figure all of this out there's a military hearing hanging over their heads.

Overall, I enjoyed the novel--the angst was low, the sexiness was seductive, the emotions were legitimate and all of that worked. I thought 
there were parts that lagged and parts of the plot that were a little glossed over and those things were distracting but it was still a sweet story
of love and redemption.
