Review: Until There Was You
Book Title: Until There Was You by Jessica Scott
Publisher: Ballantine Books
Reviewer: Storm Goddess
Review Rating: 4.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS
A by-the-book captain with a West Point background, Captain Evan Loehr refuses to mix business with pleasure--except for an unguarded instance years ago when he succumbed to the deep sensuality of redheaded beauty Claire Montoya. From that moment on, though, Evan has been at odds with her, through two deployments to Iraq and back again. But when he is asked to train a team prepping for combat alongside Claire, battle-worn Evan is in for the fight of his life.
Strong, gutsy, and loyal, Captain Claire Montoya has worked hard to earn the rank on her chest. In Evan, Claire sees a rigid officer who puts the rules before everything else--including his people. When the mission forces them together, Claire soon discovers that there is more to Evan than meets the eye. He's more than the rank on his chest; he's a man with dark secrets and deep longings. For all their differences, Evan and Claire share two crucial passions: their country and each other.
A very moving and touching romance.
It's not often we find a contemporary romance book featuring military, but with Jessica Scott, that's exactly what we get. A romance between two
Evan and Clare are both captains in the military. They are strong, brave and one hell of a duo. But there are many things that go against them. When they are in the fight of their lives, the times get tough. Both Evan and Clare have a sordid past, and can be what you'd call a tortured soul. The emotions are brought on high as the pair figures their future out- possibly together.
Scott's writing is engaging, real to life, and very well done. Until There Was You is one of thost must read books if you're wanting an emotional charged story that won't leave your mind for a very long time.
