Back to You by Jessica Scott

Author: Jessica Scott
Publisher: Forever (Grand Central Publishing)
Date of publication: January 2014

He's in for the fight of his life . . .

Army captain Trent Davila loved his wife, Laura, and their two beautiful children. But when he almost lost his life in combat, something inside him died. He couldn't explain the emptiness he felt or bridge the growing distance between him and his family—so he deployed again. And again. And again . . . until his marriage reached its breaking point. Now, with everything on the line, Trent has one last chance to prove to his wife that he can be the man she needs . . . if she'll have him

. . . to win back his only love.

Laura is blindsided when Trent returns home. Time and again, he chose his men over his family, and she's just beginning to put the pieces of her shattered heart back together. But when Trent faces a court martial on false charges, only Laura can save him. What begins as an act of kindness to protect his career inflames a desire she thought long buried—and a love that won't be denied. But can she trust that this time he's back to stay?

Back to You is the third in the Coming Home series by Ms. Scott.  I am so in love with this series. The thing that I love the most is that the author uses her military background to give you a very real look at the life of our soldiers and how war affects them.   Back to You is such a compelling story about two people who are so in love, but don't know how to save their marriage. I felt like it was a very real look at how war doesn't just change the soldier, it can really change the family that is waiting for him or her.  My heart was rooting for Trent and Laura to find their way back to each other.

Trent Davila has been hiding from his family.  Continually volunteering for tours has caused a real rift in his marriage with Laura.  The war has changed him and he finds himself not knowing how to be a dad and a husband.  When he returns home to face court martial charges, Laura is reluctant to get involved.  I was really happy that their finding their way back to each other took time.  I don't think I would have believed it if it was quick.  It was heart-wrenching, but the journey back to each other was so worth taking with them.  

This is a great addition to the series.  The next book, All for You, comes out on February 4.  Make sure to come back on Tuesday to read my review and check out some great giveaways from the publisher!
