finding love again
**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion**
I love how Jessica Scott accurately portrays the emotions of the military personnel returned from deployment. In this story Patrick and Sam are struggling. Sam has survivor's guilt, some PTSD, and is feeling numb and empty. Unable to feel love, she seeks the solace of home and goes back to Maine. Patrick has had counseling for his PTSD, but he's still harboring a secret from Sam. He won't lose her or their daughter, when Natalie calls daddy and asks him to come, he's on the next plane, ready to do anything and everything to save his family.
Patrick helps Sam realize she can't kick her problems alone, and she needs to face them in order to go forward with their lives. He also shows her he'll stay--other men in her life have left her, so she ran before she thought he would. But Patrick is in for the long haul. Proving love can both of them heal and find their way back to each other. He willing to leave the military and start life over in Maine, anything to save his family. Sam sees Patrick's love as true, learns his secret, and begins the long journey back to love and feeling again.
Together, they decide to become a family, not just in name, but in reality, too. Marriage. Permanency. Formally naming Patrick the father of her child. Love. And, all Natalie's Christmas wishes come true.
This is a well-written and wonderful story of finding everything is in front of her once she opens her heart to love, coming home, and starting over!
A man fighting for his family! Very emotional!!!
All of the books of the "Coming Home" series are written with so much emotion. The struggle for these men and women soldiers is so very real. This is the story of Patrick and Samantha and it is very powerful. It deals with the aftermath of deployment and how these soldiers deal with war and loss. Jessica Scott writes AMAZING military romance! This novella is a must read. The phone call between Patrick and his daughter, Natalie, was very emotional and will stay with me for quite a while. I can't wait to read more from this very talented author.
