Back to You by Jessica Scott

Laura has been left behind by Trent one too many times.   She is tired of being a single mom raising two young children.    When Trent finally comes back home he is trying to deal with the past and his nightmares from being deployed so many times.    He also has to figure out how to convince Laura that divorce is not their only option.

My Review:

This is a book I have been anxiously waiting for.   I first met Laura and Trent in the first book of this series.   I fell in love with them both and really wanted them to find their happy ever after.      When I found out this was coming out I knew I had to get my hands on it.   From the minute I picked Back to You up I was unable to put it down.

Back to You is a romance story.   But there is so much more to it.   There are the hard troubles the military personal have adjusting to family life after being deployed, the story of rediscovering love, and the story of coming to terms with yourself.     I found myself with tears running down my cheeks at points.   Then I would hear myself laughing out loud, especially at some of the antics of Laura and Trent's little angels had with the rodents.    At some points I would be blushing due to the hot and erotic but loving sexy scenes.

Jessica Scott is an incredible author.  I highly recommend all her books, especially this one and the others in the Coming Home series.
