Until There Was You by Jessica Scott



...............................................................................................
A by-the-book captain with a West Point background, Captain Evan Loehr refuses to mix business with pleasure—except for an unguarded instance years ago when he succumbed to the deep sensuality of redheaded beauty Claire Montoya. From that moment on, though, Evan has been at odds with her, through two deployments to Iraq and back again. But when he is asked to train a team prepping for combat alongside Claire, battle-worn Evan is in for the fight of his life.
Strong, gutsy, and loyal, Captain Claire Montoya has worked hard to earn the rank on her chest. In Evan, Claire sees a rigid officer who puts the rules before everything else—including his people. When the mission forces them together, Claire soon discovers that there is more to Evan than meets the eye. He’s more than the rank on his chest; he’s a man with dark secrets and deep longings. For all their differences, Evan and Claire share two crucial passions: their country and each other.

Until There Was You is the second book in the Coming Home Series by Jessica Scott.

A love story placed in the middle of the military.  A great story which gives a small insight to the way military life plays a major role in each decision that is made.  Loyalty, friendship, love, hate, this story has it all.

Spanning over three years is the story of Captains Evan Loehr and Claire Montoya.  Evan is a very highly strung individual who at first glance doesn’t seem to know how to relax and is distant to everyone.  Claire is the woman he is attracted to from the first night he lays eyes on her, the first night she kisses him to prove it’s alright to relax sometimes.  Fighting his attraction he tries to remain distant but knows the truth, he wants to be closer to her than anyone else he has ever known.  Both running from each other out of fear of being close to someone and getting hurt.  They both have scars that deeply affect them and as they slowly open to each other and begin to trust again we see if they have a chance to allow themselves to forgive for past mistakes and truly be happy again.

Just like other women, I love men in uniforms and this book has it written all over it. I love the alpha male, taking charge of Evan. At the same time, I enjoy seeing Claire going from being scared to a protective woman of those she loves. Their relationship is complicate but it has the spice that keeps you want to stay a step ahead of these two. The story is very well written and I am looking forward to the next instalment.
