Life is all about the jigsaw, right? Finding the different puzzle pieces to complete your very own picture. A career you love, a house to make a home, a lover to complete you, and keep you warm at night.
Danielle Renton has a life, and she loves it. A recent law school graduate, she’d been floored when her boyfriend, Nate Lewis, enlisted during their sophomore year of college. At the time, she’d been concerned with what that meant for them as a couple, but in the years that followed, they’d learned to adapt to the logistics of an army relationship. But when life throws her a curveball, how will she cope? Can she pick up the pieces and make her picture beautiful again? Or does she realize that, sometimes, the pieces can be too broken to fit back together…
Let me start off by saying that I haven’t read anything from this author and I hadn’t read any teasers about this book, so I had no idea what to expect. The synopsis and the cover really intrigued me, so I decided to give it a go. I am so glad that I did. I read this story in one day because I absolutely could not put it down. I was sneaking in reading every chance I got that day so because I needed to know what was going to happen. This type of love story is so very sweet. It wasn’t one that was hot, steamy, and passionate (though you could feel the passion). It was one that was so romantic – both in the way it began and the way it ended. It was just such pure sweet romance with so much heartbreak and tragedy. I found that I was crying through a lot of the book because Rebecca Brooke did such a good job of expressing the pain in the different situations that I felt it along with the characters. Along with that, I felt their frustration and their anger about various things.
While there are 2 guys involved in the story, it isn’t your typical love triangle. You fall in love with both men and root for both of them. There were also some side characters that I am REALLY hoping that we’ll get to know (hint hint) in their own books. There isn’t a cliffhanger as far as Danielle is concerned, but I did wonder about a few of the others and what was going on for them…
