Until There Was You (Coming Home, #2)

Until There Was You (Coming Home, #2) - Jessica Scott MY THOUGHTSLOVED ITClaire and Evan are both commanding officers and have done several tours of duty together. They are friendly but Evan is by the book while Claire tends to command by her heart. Both do what is right for the situation and this leads to a few confrontations in their management styles. Oh yeah, and there is an undeniable need to fraternized between the officers. I guess this is ok since they are both at the same level in the military. I did find myself asking my nephew (new army discharge) about certain aspects of the story and everything was spot on which should be the case since Ms. Scott is an army officer herself. Although I didn't read the first book in this series, I was instantly drawn in by the characters and setting. I haven't read any straight military type romances before so this story was a great introduction. The romance and interludes are appropriately steamy and wow, I had no idea that this could be the case in the military. The interplay between Claire and Evan is just spectacular and the pair compliments each other! There are also some interesting characters like Reza, who has a drinking problem. There is extra tension provided by the elements of war which helps build the relationship between the pair. I would love to read another one in this genre so I guess I will have to go download the first book in the series, Because of You
