In my grief, I sent a letter to the first boy I ever loved. I hoped in writing it I'd find some peace from the nightmare I was living, some solace in my anger.
I didn't expect him to write back. I wasn't prepared for his words, and I certainly wasn't ready for the impact this soldier would have on my life. A deep-rooted hate transformed into friendship, and then molded into a love like I'd never known before.
Sergeant Devin Ulysses Clay did what I couldn't: He put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, restoring my faith in humanity and teaching me how to live again.
But now that I'm whole, I have a decision to make: Do I return to my life as I knew it and the fiancé I left behind, or do I walk away from it all for the only man to ever break my heart?

Good but not fabulous
This is a sweet love story, but Katie almost killed me in the beginning. whining, crying, pleading, spazing out and totally clueless about the Wyatt issue. I kept listening and Katie earns her Woman Card after all. Devinn is a dream come true. Good listen if you enjoy happily ever after.

THE ENDURANCE OF TRUE LOVE.. & THE PRICE OF WAR
Their connection began on the first day of First Grade... it didn't start off well - Devin stole Katie's Barbie pencil then, by the second day, they were tossing each other to the ground and, by the age of 15 Katie knew she loved Devin completely. The Prologue starts as the two lovers declare their love for each other at the tender age of 16 and let their passions take over... making the physical connection between them as real as their soul connection. However, the promises given, the tender words spoken and the sweet dreams talked about were shattered because by the next day Devin was gone. And it would be 10 long years before these two soul-mates would see each other again.
Their love story is a difficult one to listen to because at times you're just so sad about certain events that played out in their pasts that kept them apart, then your euphoric when, against all the odds, they find each other again and reconnect, forgive and fall in love all over again. But you can't breathe easy because by this time Devin is a soldier and is deployed fighting in Iraq and, by the many brutal, tense and descriptive scenes, you know that a HEA is not necessarily guaranteed here. So your heart is either in your mouth as you try to hold back tears over what their lives could have been... or your heart's soaring at the rightness of these two lovers finding their way back to each other. However, the sucker-punch that these Authors so skilfully and cruelly weave into the storyline had me shattered, shocked and left me devastated praying for miracles.
No matter what your feeling are on War - this story has brought home the tragedy, the courage, the heartbreak, the loss, the heroism and the mental and physical toll that War inflicts on people. And I'd like to take this opportunity of personally thanking each and every member of the Armed Forces... and their families, friends and loved ones too for what they have all selflessly endured.
Worth a credit? Yes, this is an emotional second chance love story that was sweet, romantic, heartfelt, tender and with a few sexy times between two soul mates who, for a while, lost each other then miraculously found each other again against all the odds - but it was during the traumatic, dangerous and devastating backdrop of War. Dual POV's and the narrators were great at bringing heartbeats, emotions and setting the mood for each and every Chapter.
