Military Love. Heartfelt Sigh. This book was given to me for a review from the author herself, Shawn Kristen Maravel. After reading it, twice, I must say that I am epically glad that I said yes! :)
I had a special connection to this book from the beginning. I was raised as an Army Brat and I am currently married to a Combat Medic in the U.S. Army. I tend to be drawn to books about the Military life, and even though this entire book takes place after Landon has gotten out of the Army, the things mentioned and the challenges he not only went through, but goes through afterwards, are very much real.
Landon is a lost soul, a wanderer, with no roots to anyone or any place. Upon leaving the Army after 15 years of dedicated service, he hops on his bike to head... where? On the outside he has no idea, but in his heart - he knows exactly where he is headed. What he didn't bank on was Max and her little backwoods town on Wyoming. After blowing a tire on his motorcycle, he ends up needing a repair shop, which is how he ends up at Max's shop. Much to his surprise, Max is a female.. and quite freaking GORGEOUS. Letting him stay with her for the duration it would take to fix his bike, the two set of on a journey of strangers getting to know one another. Neither one of them expected to end up giving their heart to the other one, but then again who does?! With Landon always leaving before feelings that big can arise, will he be able to stick around?
What I loved most about this novel was the story behind the main story. The story that tells us about the brotherhood these men find in the Military, about the loss that they so commonly find themselves facing, the toll everything takes on them and the changes that it can cause, but most of all, I love it for the story it told of a best friend, a brother in arms fulfilling the request of one of his soldiers. It truly is a heartwarming story.
I was beyond touch at both stories that Maravel portrayed here. As a fellow Military wife, I believe Shawn did one amazing job!
It was so well written and the character were down to earth and just felt so real. Like every day people that you and I would know, that you and I could be.
Landon was a fabulous character. My heart really went out to him and I felt myself really caring for him and for his outcome. I love it when that happens, when I get so caught up in the characters that I really start to care about them.
Max was a great character as well. She was so down to Earth. A tomboy that was still soft enough to be girly when she wanted to be but strong enough to not let anyone tell her who she should or shouldn't be or what she should or shouldn't do. She was truly a kick butt character in a real sense.
I loved reading about Max and Landon as a couple, how they interacted with one another, discovered one another and discovered themselves as well. It was nice to see them recognize their demons and try to overcome them.
And can I say that I absolutely adored that this book had an epilogue? That we got to see where Max and Landon were years down the road? What they were doing and how their lives were?
I love it when authors do that.
This was a fabulous read and it most certainly won't be my last book by Maravel.
