Received a copy from Netgalley for an honest review.

This book spoke to me in so many ways I am not sure where to begin. The overall plot has our female protagonist meet an amazing guy while on vacation in Vegas. The guy is a fighter pilot for the USAF. He has been doing his job for about 10 plus years. The story is about sacrificing for love. What would you sacrifice if you found the love of your life? That is what Jordon is asking herself.

Now I am going to say, I am an air force wife. Not a fighter pilots, but still a military wife none the less. As I have said in other post, the military has its own culture. The language, the people, the life style all can be very foreign to those who have never had to live it. There is lingo and jargon that even may defer between the ranks. Those that went to the academy and those that just went to officer school. There are many times as a spouse you will be alone. The work hours can be crazy. There is times they may be called in or have to stay late. Depending on the work they do can also determine the stress level they are under. They see things and experiences things that normal people cannot fathom.

I believe this book does a FANTASTIC job of explaining how military spouses live every day with the stress of having a loved one in harms way.  There are some parts of this book that I smiled at and also nodded my head, completely agreeing to what was going on. Jordan is embraced into this culture by some of the other officer’s wives. They try to make her feel welcomed and answer any questions she may have regarding what is going on.

When Noah and Jordon decided to try to have a relationship with each other, the book demonstrates the heavy lopsidedness of Jordan having to give up more to make the relationship work.  Though when tragedy strikes it makes her questions if she is making the right choices.

This book has dual POV’s from Noah and Jordan. If you are unfamiliar with military lingo, don’t worry, they explain it, because Jordan has no idea what is being said either. Military lingo has many acronyms. I know, it is weird, but you catch on the more you are around it.

I think this book is great for anyone that wants some heated romance, but a positive story line. If you are a strong feminist, you may not like it, because of the choices Jordan has to make. Otherwise it was fantastic.

Should you read it??? I think that is a yes. 4.5 Hearts! 4-5-hearts
