"Jessica Scott is an exciting new voice in romantic fiction who bursts upon the scene with an unputdownable debut novel!"
--Robyn Carr, New York Times bestselling author on Because of You

She plays by the rules . . .

Captain Ben Teague is many things: a tough soldier, a loyal friend, and a bona fide smart-ass. He doesn't have much tolerance for BS, which is why he's mad as hell when a trusted colleague and mentor is brought up on charges that can't possibly be true. He's even more frustrated with by-the-book lawyer Major Olivia Hale. But there's something simmering beneath her icy reserve--and Ben just can't resist turning up the heat . . .

. . . and he's determined to break them

The only thing riskier than mixing business with pleasure is enjoying it . . . and Olivia can't resist locking horns--and lips--with Ben. He's got more compassion in his little finger than any commander she's ever met, a fact that makes him a better leader than he realizes. But when the case that brought them together awakens demons from Olivia's past, she will have to choose between following orders--or her heart . . .

Publishers Weekly Review

Mar 09, 2015 – Scott’s fifth Coming Home contemporary (after All for You), set at Ft. Hood, starts out rushed but gradually settles down. Cheeky Capt. Ben Teague never wanted command, but now he has it, including a responsibility to discipline those who were once his peers. When soldier Escoberra beats his daughter until she requires hospitalization, Ben is shocked; it seems totally out of character. Maj. Olivia Hale, the attractive lawyer assigned to advise Ben, insists that the law should be strictly enforced, but Ben can’t shake the feeling that this situation is more complicated than it looks. The sparks of attraction lead Ben and Olivia into distinctly unprofessional situations, while Olivia has to navigate the scars of her own past. What starts as a rough, clunky premise develops into a pleasant and gratifying read, with the characters breaking from their clichéd starting positions near the halfway mark. Disappointing compared to the prior entries in the series, this is nevertheless a quality romance with a satisfying payoff in the finale.

Customer Reviews

Read the series

This book is part of a wonderful series. I loved them all. Many romance authors write about war heroes & their flaws, but this series also gives insight to the family left at home to be strong at the hardest time in their lives. Very emotional story.
