Book Length (Est.): 276 pages
She’s a survivor of the front lines of politics. He’s a wounded soldier returning home from the battlefield. Can they place their trust in the power of love?
Nobody plays the role of perfect politician’s daughter better than quiet, respectable math teacher Brooke Ellstein. But she won’t be caught swimming with the sharks again, not after the son of a wealthy donor sinks his teeth into her and gets away with it. Still, political connections have their perks, such as heading up the governor’s “Support Our Troops” pen-pal initiative—and getting first dibs on the smoking-hot sergeant whose picture shakes her right down to her goody-two-shoes.
When corresponding with sweet, classy Brooke, Shane Develen instinctively hides his commando tattoos and blue-collar roots—and he can tell that she’s hiding something, too. But Shane knows he’s gained her trust when Brooke gives him a blisteringly sexy photo. Then he’s injured in an ambush and a fellow soldier posts the snapshot online. Overnight, Brooke’s reputation turns to ashes. Even though he’s totally wrong for her, Shane shows up on Brooke’s doorstep, determined to set things right—and discovers that right or wrong has nothing on the chemistry they share.

Brooke Ellstein is the perfect politician’s daughter with keeping to herself and being a respectable school teacher. Being part of the “Support Our Troops” she gets first dibs on becoming the pen pal to a very hot soldier.
Shane Develen has had multiple tours overseas and having a pen pal takes his mind off things. Getting to know each other for months and actually spending a day together makes it all fall into place.
When Shane is deployed again he gets sexy photos from Brooke. When he gets hurt and is sent back to the states someone gets a hold of the pictures and posts them to social media. The first thing to fall is Brooke’s job and her family is not pleased at all considering her father is very close to Election Day. Shane being the dedicated man that he is will stop at nothing to protect her even if it means showing who he really is and his new wounds.
I really enjoyed this book. Anything related to military stays very close to my heart. I love how we get a close up view on how Shane struggles with being back home and has no idea what his future will hold. Brooke’s love for him is very apparent and she just wants to help him become the man that she knows he is capable of.
I would recommend this to anyone that loves a great romance military story.
My Favorite Moment: I love the way that they communicate with each other. They just make it so easy.
