Now a Top 100 Amazon Bestseller!

Briggs,

Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn’t know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough-my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .

Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

The truth is I’m lost without you.

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,
Scottie

My Review

Riveting!

This is not a book for pus-says as Mullins would say. There are so many raw moments, it brought tears to my eyes. Yes, it’s that good.

Katy Scott is proud of her military heritage and is happy to serve her country when she is called upon, even though it means leaving behind the most important people in her life- her husband, the Captain, and her six-year-old son, Noah.

Baghdad is an awakening, but with the help of her best friend, Mullins, Scott settles into camp life. This is where she first meets Christopher Briggs-infantry, and though she’s not sure she likes him, it’s hard to avoid the chemistry between them. But, Katy loves her husband, Gavin, and would never dream of cheating and she makes sure everyone- especially Briggs- knows this.

A routine trip to deliver supplies goes horribly awry and Briggs, Scott, and Mullins are captured by a militia force. What follows are some of the darkest days in these soldiers lives. My heart bled with all they were forced to endure. The only thing that kept Briggs and Scottie alive were each other. A bond was formed in that pit of hell that was impossible to break.

After their release, and return stateside, the war veterans try to recover the pieces of their lives and carry on, but nothing is as before.

There is only the after.

Favorite lines:

You were destined to be a part of my life. You’ve changed me. No matter where this journey takes us, when I close my eyes, it will be your face I see. When I breathe my last breath, your name will be on my lips.

I’m the problem, and that’s the hardest part. Our marriage was completely different before I was deployed. Army spouses deserve fucking medals.

Maybe time will give back what it took away, and I’ll be the wiser for it. Maybe…eventually. For now, my heart is the reckless navigator, and I, a reluctant passenger, unable to escape the way I love him.

This book will throw all your preconceived beliefs out the window. There are no easy answers, and in the end, all you can do is follow your heart.

I give Heartbreak Warfare 5+ lovely kisses- this book will destroy you!

      Oh, my gosh! This book was everything you said. It tore me apart. I felt so guilty rooting for Briggs, but man, he deserved a HEA.
      I’m glad she ended it the way she did, so we could see the healing and how it works out.
      A fantastic start to my 2019 reading!
