What an awesome way to end Military week here on A Novel Love! Please check out this review and book!
Will his call of duty break both their hearts?
Losing her father in Desert Storm has left Stephanie
James with a bitter soul when it comes to the military. As
a college senior juggling a full course load, Steph’s only
goal is to graduate with honors at the end of the semester.
She’s focused, determined, and a firm believer in all work
and no play. Then she meets Brandon Walker at a New
Year’s Eve costume party. Despite his disguise, Steph
finds herself attracted to the camouflaged soldier who
curls her toes with a scorching midnight kiss.
Brandon is an engineering major and ROTC student from
the hills of Kentucky. Growing up as the son of a major
general has given Brandon firsthand knowledge of the
struggles military families sometimes face. Now that his
father’s memory is fading, Brandon is even more
determined to make his dad proud and graduate as an
officer in the United States Army. Then he meets
Stephanie, and suddenly, his focus is less on his military
service and more on the pretty brunette who has stolen
his heart. When he becomes aware of Steph’s resentment
toward the military, he worries their relationship is
When faced with the realization that she’s fallen in love
with a soldier, can Steph’s wounds from the past be
healed with love in her present . . . and in her future?
This is a light and easy read. Steph has always hated the military because she lost her father during Desert Storm. She is focused and driven to graduate and become a teacher. Since her father died her mom struggled for years as a single parent, who never remarried. I feel that made Steph’s hatred for the all things military.
Brandon struggles to be there for his family and be at school. His dad the commander spends most days not remembering things. Brandon wants to make his father proud and so he is focused on getting out of school and getting into the military. All of that changes when he meet Steph.
I felt like they were fun together and there were a lot of cute 80’s one liners and themes in the book, which was fun considering I grew up in the 80’s! This is a pretty PG13 book but it still is a good book and I recommend you pick up a copy today!
