This is a new to me author so I was looking forward to seeing what her writing style was like. I believe I discovered her at a Facebook release party for another author's book. I am always up for a new author! The book's summary had me intrigued and it sounded like a book I would like; thankfully I received an ARC through NetGalley for an honest review. This book is due to be released on 10/6/15.
The beginning of this book was interesting as to how it started. Having family and friends serve in the military, it was near and dear to my heart to see the main characters communicate via letters while the hero is in Afghanistan. Some of them made me laugh out loud. They were cute, sweet and fun to read. Definitely a unique and interesting way to introduce characters. And there were surprising things about the hero that I wasn't expecting. However, the more I read, the harder I found it to like the heroine. It made it hard to connect with the both of them (loved Rory!!) and it was a cute story. I did enjoy it, but Neve's insecurities had me struggling to like her most of the time but there were lots of times I did like her. As a whole, this book wasn't a favorite but it was enjoyable. If you like a story with a sexy military man (who doesn't?!) who is sweet, caring and a family man, then read on!!
Perfect for fans of Kristan Higgins and Robyn Carr, this sexy yet sweet military romance reunites a headstrong dancer and a rugged army soldier after one steamy encounter tears them apart.
As a dancer who creates mesmerizing visions onstage, Neve James is looking for the same kind of stability in her love life. Her pen pal, Rory McRoy, is on leave from deployment in Afghanistan, so she heads to Boston to surprise him. After corresponding for months as part of a "Support Our Troops" initiative- and exchanging dozens of "Read When You're Alone" letters- Neve knows what Rory likes, and she intends to fulfill his every fantasy. But all they get are a few blissful moments together before they're interrupted by a woman claiming to be Rory's fiancee.
Rory has fallen hard for Neve's letters. When he finally meets her in person, he has to have her, right then and there- until Neve takes off in a fit of anger. Forced to return to Afghanistan before he can fix things between them, Rory waits four agonizing months to prove that he's not the man Neve thinks he is. But by the time he arrives in New York, she's already made up her mind. Luckily, Rory never backs down from a challenge, and he's prepared to put everything on the line for love.
