    Well I thought the first 2 in this series were intense and an emotional rollercoaster, I have to say this one was evenso I like that there is a great story to these, its not just sex The characters are dealing with real issues, its everyday life so not far fetched or hard to believe it happening I can imagine that many enlisted guys going through the feelings raised in this series, should they have a relationship when they know they are being deployed to a war zone the risk that they w Well I thought the first 2 in this series were intense and an emotional rollercoaster, I have to say this one was evenso I like that there is a great story to these, its not just sex The characters are dealing with real issues, its everyday life so not far fetched or hard to believe it happening I can imagine that many enlisted guys going through the feelings raised in this series, should they have a relationship when they know they are being deployed to a war zone the risk that they wont return therefore leaving someone broken hearted back home It is a hard one, though I guess it just comes down to the 2 people involved there are so many things going on in this besides the detail of Ethan leaving, there s Brad, Kate and all the twists and turns, ups and downs I have no hesitation in recommending this series to anyone that likes romance, with a twist of mystery and complex subject matter I was at times on the edge of my seat, often screaming in my head at Ethan and Alexis both to sort themselves out I thought I knew who was causing the bulk of the trouble but even with that there is a twist near the end, so don t jump to conclusions its not all as it seems A great read, I thoroughly enjoyed

    Received a copy for my honest review Not sure where to start The story line is crazy The main character has no back bone and is wishy washy Characters are switched in certain paragraphs Punctuation is not used correctly Unfortunately I just couldn t get into the book at all.
