Because of You

If you love heartfelt and compassionate contemporary romances with the twist, welcome to the Coming Home series. In Because of You, the first book in the Coming Home series, Jessica Scott wrote about the war in Afghanistan in 2007, before, during and after. It dealt with families and relationship, on and off the battlefield. When Shane Garrison met Army nurse, Jen St. James, there was chemistry  between them. Shane dealt with his battle wounds, the situation with his ex-wife, and delicate matters with the team with a pending investigation. Jen St. James had her own scars to deal with, as a former breast cancer survivor. With each other, they wouldn't get through their situation and face the ghosts of the past for their future. This tugged your heart and reminded us that beauty's skin deep, when we all deal with all types of scars. A beautiful story from former Army Veteran Jessica Scott who've been through it all herself.

This was a fantastic five-star contemporary romance novel. It dealt with the matters of the heart and war wounds. I did like the war scenes in Afghanistan and in the hospital. I did care about Jen who had insecurities, since she dealt with breast cancer. I also cared about Trent and Laura and Shane as well. I didn't like the prick of the lieutenant that wanted to do Shane and Trent in. I did feel bad for Shane, who was going through a tough divorce, and then recovering from his own war wounds. I also worried about Laura and Trent's relationship, especially since it caused a tension in their marriage. This moved me to tears and tugged my heart real tight.
