Kate Hoffmann ¶ 2 ReviewReview copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalleyI generally enjoy military style romances The heroes are always sexy hunks and the heroines are strong females In some ways this book has a lot of the elements that I like about romances and about military romances in particular But on the other hand I felt like it was lacking somethingI liked Olivia the heroine right away Ever since high school she knew she wanted to be a Dare for More doctor and she worked hard and achieved her goal Once she became aoctor she wanted to set up a network of free clinics in and around the area where she lived and grew up She s working on that goal now and is close to opening up a first location So I loved that she was a go getter and that she knew what she wanted career wise But I felt like she was wishy washy about the hero Will I mean she wants him loves him but she sort of plays this push pull game with him I mean she wasn t playing games on purpose or anything though She just really couldn t seem to make up her mind as to whether or not she was all in with him Of course I could totally understand why she needs to guard her heart He broke it once before and he could certainly THE COCAINE ADDICTION CURE (Drug Addiction, 12 Step Program, Road to Recovery, Alcohol Addiction) do so again And when she s with him she can t help but let her heart get involved When she s away from him she wants too the smart thing and not fall back in love with him So I really DO get it I just Boku no Hero Academia dj - Osananajimi ga Sugoku Yakkai na Kosei ni Kakatteru didn t like itI also liked Will but he seemed a little bitter at first Again he has good reason he was pretty much blown up in Afghanistan and he s still trying to recover all of his faculties I m just saying that it made itifficult to warm up to him I really liked him for his honor and his A Gypsy Promise dedication He wanted to enlist in the military because hisad and grandfather were both in the service and they had both seen war Plus he wanted his Imprisoned with the Alien Rohilian Warrior dad to be proud of him I just could t be mad at him for that since hisad Masterplots II died a few years before Will enlisted so it was sort of like he wasoing it for his African American History Black History Month Book 1 dad but also so that he could feel closer to hisad I just thought it was really sweet and noble Now Will s hesitance on getting back together with Olivia made a lot of sense to me He feels like he can t trust his own emotions Does he really care for her still or is it just his hormones and loneliness talking Does he really want to stay at home or oes he want to return to the military and the job that he s good at and the brothers in arms that he has there I think that Will s journey was a lot interesting and made him fun to readOf course Will and Olivia have history together so they made a great couple I wanted to yell at them and say Of course you belong together Figure it out already But that would have totally ruined the story Both Olivia and Will have some issues that they need to work through before they would be good for they need to work through before they would be good for other Will wants to go back to the military and be eployed again once he s all healed and cleared for The Alchemy of Yoga duty She wants him to stay home and be with her where it s safe And neither of them want to budge on their careers It makes for greatrama but it also made them both less likable at times There were several Sexy Time scenes and they were pretty hot But something was missing from this book or from their relationship and I m still not sure what it wasI m actually on the fence about whether or not to recommend this book It has all the elements that make a great military romance a strong flawed wounded hero who has serious oubts about himself a strong self sufficient woman who helps him get back to shape a hometown rooting for the hero to stay and for them to be a couple I could go on But I have to say that I felt a little bored with the story Sometimes Olivia seemed like a selfish brat And Will occasionally seemed like a hard headed idiot Not a lot happens except for Will trying to get 100% function back so

L to face the uncertainty of a future without the only life he has known His fear of failing is his biggest hurdle and as much as Olivia hates the idea of him going back to war she cannot stand by and This is an emotionally raw story Amidst the heated romance of the story Hoffmann makes you really stop and think about the lives of those in the military and the lives of their families The reality of the characters situations shine through in an unmistakable way The romantic tension between them is palpable throughout Not only is the story well told but Hoffmann allows the beauty of winter to shine through The main characters in this novel are fantastically well Little Witch Academia Chronicle - Little Witch Academia Chronicle - Tanki - 2017/8/31 developed I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them as individuals Their combined histories were revealing and also allows readers to understand the context of the story itself I appreciated how they were bothetermined to be true to themselves but in the end willing to compromise The supporting cast in this novel wasn t overly The Machine Stops developed but they all suited their roles in the story As a whole this was a shockingly raw real novel that I thoroughly enjoyed I wouldefinitely recommend it to others and will be reading of this author s work in the future Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review Just because it Dare for More didn t work out when they were young adultsoesn t mean that it can t work nowI love reading military stories and I have to say that this was an interesting read I was able to get to know the characters and a little about his and her past and what happened before he left to join the Marines They were both young adults that were in love but because he made the Academia dos Anjos (Redenção Livro 2) decision to enlist to her itidn t fall into their plans After ten long years he comes back home but he is not the same person but neither is she So much has happened in those years he hardened his heart to any emotion and she ended up getting married but it idn t work out Now here they both are trying to see if they could be friends She told him the only thing she reuested from him was for him to not fall in love with her but what she forgot was she shouldn t fall in love with him all over again Seducing the Marine was an interesting read The characters were well written and I liked Ms Hoffmann s writing style She was able to eliver a romance in which I smiled but then again there were a tear or two In this story we had Will a Marine that was having Life with My Idiot Family difficulty with PTSD but also adjusting to a world where there is no war Then there was a woman Olivia who was a greatoctor but was also working on a wonderful program that would help her patients She loved him before he left and she loved him now but she knew that once he got better he would go back
