Military romances are a big love for me. My step dad is in the army and has done tours in places such as Afghanistan and Iraq. Sometimes, the mental injuries far outweigh the physical. PTSD is so common for soldiers and it makes my heart bleed. I have a big respect for people in the forces, our heroes.
Return to Me is a great book; from the first page I was hooked, right up until the last. Moran has a way with words, she catapults us straight into the story with her characters. Her writing is truly amazing and she is, and always will be one of my favourite authors.
Cole is so much more than he seems and I love how we get the past woven in with the present. It helps to understand the reasoning behind their emotions and just pulls us in all the more. Personally, I think his scars just add to his beauty; both physical and mental. The guilt he’s carried for 10 years has only festered and grew. Watching him learn to deal with it and forgive himself is something special. I just loved him, even though at times he deserved a smack to the head.
Mia spent 10 years of her life hating Cole, believing he’d thrown her out like yesterday’s trash. For her to agree to the job as his private nurse, whatever the reasoning was brave and smart. I really liked her character. She’s beautiful inside and out. Her profession suits her perfectly and she does her job well.
For those of you who haven’t read any of Kelly Moran’s work I can’t recommend them enough. The Dysfunctional Test and her phantoms series are both in my favourite pile. Don’t miss out on all the juicy goodness she has to offer!!
