Synopsis: Seven years ago Bobby enlisted into the army leaving nothing behind but a “Dear Jennifer” letter. After a mission gone wrong, Bobby is back to face the fears that caused him to run. For Jennifer, no man ever measured up to the man she had planned to marry and she intends to get the closure she needs to move on in her life. One is looking for an ending and the other is looking for a new beginning in love…
Author: Lisa Renee Jones writes contemporary, suspense, paranormal, and even erotic fiction. She has over a dozen books and a few novellas but always with dangerously sexy heroes.
Location: The setting for this book was kind of jumpy. I didn’t really notice this as I read, but after, when actually thinking about it. The prologue takes place on a foreign mission and then the rest of the book takes place in Texas. But while in cowboy state it goes from house to house, town to town, place to place, and ends in Mexico.
Plot: The multiple locations sort of make sense since that jumpiness mirrored the jumping of the plot. Bobby and Jennifer’s relationship mimicked by Mark and Marcie’s relationship but not excluding Bobby’s relationship with his father, Joey, who also had a tempestuous relationship with his second wife Kate. There’s an awful lot going on in just over 200 pages.
Character: Sergeant Bobby Evans is tall, blond, and gorgeous. A man in uniform who is a good kisser, good in bed, and crazy in love. Need I say more?
Quote: “Why would I leave, Jen?” he asked softly. “I finally came home. “
She didn’t do lack of sleep well, but when she was forced to, she did cranky exceptionally well.
The Verdict: A light read with the heat turned up, it’s fluff gone wild. It is a cute read, and I would be willing to crack the pages again if only for the enjoyment of having a dream man in my life again… even if he is just on paper.
