Goodreads Summary:
Everything happens for a reason.
Sometimes in life it feels like everything that can go wrong does, but everything happens for a reason. A relationship crumbles so someone else can mend the pieces of your broken heart. A change of plans can lead you to something you didn’t even know you were missing. You help others and discover that it was you who needed to be helped all along.  
Jenn’s life is nothing as she had imagined it would be. She is twenty-something with a failing career and her love life has officially ended with an ultimate act of betrayal. She is ready to throw away her dreams when a chance run-in with a soldier, dealing with his own misfortunes, alters her course and changes her perspective on life.
My Review:

I definitely enjoyed this sweet story about Shane and Jenn. Their relationships in the past have made them hesitant on starting new relationships, but with perfect timing and unique circumstances, they meet and a beautiful friendship begins. I really enjoyed the development of their friendship and the interesting way it came about. The author created great chemistry between Shane and Jenn, making the progression in their romantic relationship believable. I was rooting for them all the way. I also really liked Jake and May and how they were integrated into the story. The author created some interesting secondary characters.

However, though I liked Shane's military history and how that shaped him as a person, I felt Jenn's relationship history and her family were a bit absurd. Her family seriously needed a kick to the head or something. The plot's progression in the second half also seemed a bit off in places, certain reactions from the MCs a little odd. It's difficult to pinpoint, but parts of the story and plot were just off for me, and certain transitions felt abrupt in places.

Overall, I liked the sweet story that Teresa Mummert created. The plotline was creative and unique, the main characters likable, and the reading enjoyable. I read the book quickly and was very happy there was an epilogue. This is a stand alone - no surprise cliffhanger and then having to wait for a sequel. This is a great book if you're looking for an easy read, with some very sweet moments, some heart-breaking moments, and a great chance at finding love.

3-1/2 STARS
