Wow…What other word
is there?It’s the only one I could
formulate.I just went on a
rollercoaster of emotions in this book:love, hate, anger, sadness, despair, hurt, excitement….. In collecting
myself after reading, I still say Wow!

Marine thumb and has grew up on the base.She has learned to keep herself in check at all times.She never left base and was homeschooled. The
only friends she had were the Marines in her father’s unit and they came and

Oh, and let’s not forget Carter.He’s a Marine and Harper’s best friend from
This begins the roller coaster ride of this book and your
Harper begins dating Brandon and they are deeply in love—after
only a couple of weeks.But Chase is
still in her thoughts.She sees him all
the time and he is a total jerk to her.Except on Sundays.Sundays are
family days at Bree and Chase’s house.Harper gets pulled into their family and wrapped around with love that
she has never experienced before.On
these Sundays, Chase is warm and loving.He never lets her leave his side.He’s everything that she wants.She is in love with Chase also.
Harper’s inexperience with boys opens the door to much of
this story line, will she sleep with him and who will she sleep with.It’s that pull to find out what she is going
I am going to try my best with my thoughts to keep the
spoilers out, but I don’t know if that is possible with this book.
I liked the heroine in this book.She had lots of flaws, but was still
strong.She was very inexperienced in
life, but did her best not to let it show.She was faced with many difficult decisions and took them on head
first.She didn’t negate from her responsibilities
and met them head on.
I LOVED Brandon.Loved
him.I thought he was perfect,
loving, caring and totally devoted to Harper.Everything about him screamed that he was totally in love with her and
would do anything for her.He fighting
scared the crap out of me, but also was super-hot!
Chase, to me, was a jerk.He thought he could do what he wanted when he wanted.I do admit as the story went on, I did fall
in love with him too.I feel in love
with his soft side, not the jerk side. He was very complex and was in need of a
girl like Harper to come into his life so he could make changes in it.
I was so angry with Harper.So mad I wanted to jump in that book and rip her head off!How could she??I was crushed.That anger for her carried throughout part of
the book for me.I had a hard time
getting over it as quickly as the other people in this book.
My biggest problem with this book had nothing to do with
writing.That was wonderful and
exceptional.It had to do with this one
question… What about Chase?To me he was
lost and never quite found.
Overall, this book is a MUST READ book.I normally do not read college romance
books.I have only read a few and I am
so glad that I saw this one on Goodreads to read.This one did not disappoint.I had dreams about this book and couldn’t get
it out of my thoughts.I am still
thinking about it.
