  • Military romance

    Jessica Scott writes military romances like no other romance authors. Because of her background in the Army, the authenticity of her words and her stories shines through loud and clear. She doesn't shy away from the ugliness of war and its effect on the men and women who are giving their all to defend our country. She also doesn't shy away from the pettiness, venality, blind obedience, and toxic masculinity that can be present in military culture. Yet her heroes and heroines try their best and do their utmost to perform their duties with integrity and to the best of their ability. It saddens me that here we are in 2020, STILL mired in war in the Middle East and that this book is just as relevant today as it was when it was released in 2014. A Place Called Home is a bittersweet romance between Reza Iaconelli, a hard drinking, hard partying first sergeant who has been a constant background presence throughout many of the previous books in this series, and Captain Emily Lindberg, a psychiatrist from an upper crust background who recently joined the Army to try to make a difference in the spiraling suicide rate amongst enlisted soldiers. Reza and Emily butt heads immediately as they fight over whether certain young soldiers are malingering or are truly in need of help. Yet they can't help being drawn to each other and come to find comfort in each other's presence. Reza is fighting his own internal demons due to numerous tours of active duty and a severe drinking problem, while Emily, who enlisted with a rather idealized view of the service, slowly starts to see the reality of this life. This book was not a lightweight, easy read, and I'm not so sure that I truly believe in an HEA for this couple, given the severity of Reza's issues, but the book ends with at least an HFN and a strong connection between them that hopefully will see them through. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book from Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
