Until There Was You by Jessica Scott


Reviewed by Charlotte Lynn

Evan, Captain Evan Loehr, is a by-the-book West Point educated and trained military man.  But this man has a deep dark secret that has kept him from having a true relationship in his adult life.  And Evan never mixes business with pleasure.

Claire, Captain Claire Montoya, is a hard working, loyal, gutsy military woman.  But this woman has a deep dark fear.  Because of this fear she has not had a true relationship in years.  Claire will always stand up for her friends, even if it means sacrificing herself.
When Evan and Claire are put together to train a team getting ready for deployment , the sparks fly!   This mission will force them to work past their secrets and fears possibly leading them to find their hearts.

The chemisty and fireworks between Evan and Claire starts from the very first chapter and never slows down.   This book is more than romance, it covers some very real life issues.  Dealing with guilt, abandonments, and alcoholism to name a few.  All these make Until There Was You impossible to put down.

I loved how Claire stood her ground and was incredibly loyal to her true friends, even in their dire times.  She was even willing to sacrifice her career to help them out of some tough spots.  And Evan, oh Evan, he was amazing!  Realizing Claire just needed to trust and not giving up or letting go til he got that trust, even though it would have been easier to give up and walk away.
The only thing I didn’t like about the story was that there wasn’t more pages to it.  But the ending was perfect.  Anyone who likes a man in uniform who is willing to fight for what he wants should absolutely read this book.  

After reading book one in the Coming Home series, Because of You, I knew I had to read Until There Was You when Jessica Scott asked me.
