Our Review

This book reached in and touched my soul. I had to keep a tissue handy - so many parts throughout tug at your heart strings and bring a tear to your eye. Of course one minute you are blubbering and the next you are giggling at a funny comment or incident. 

Nick (Saint by his friends) is a Marine and is over in Afghanistan and lives by the motto Semper Fi, Always Faithful. As an Army veteran I have a love for all those who serve & have served but an even deeper respect for marines. They are the best of the best. Nick was faithful to his family, friends and never waivers in his faith in God but most importantly to the Corp. 

Of course years of battle, war, loss and pain drags you down. Dear John letters, injuries and death can drain your soul and steal your spirit and Nick needed to be recharged. He needed to know all that he did meant something. 

Doc was the beautiful Marine that Nick's heart flipped over but being the man he was that's as far as it went. But then it happened and their lives were changed. Oh uh don't go assuming on that statement LOL

Nick finally gets leave and time with his family and the healing begins. Of course, in the arms of Angelina seals the last of the black hole. The chemistry between these two on their blind matched date is enough to make you need a cold shower. 

What a great story, my heart leapt out time and time again reading this book. I can't wait to see what happens with Nick and Angelina. If what they found continues, does he go back, what happens next. 

Oh make sure you read the "About The Author" at the end. I have an even more or new found respect for Beverly. Thank you Beverly for all that you do and again Thank you to your son.
