Review: Because of You by Jessica Scott

Stories about men in uniform, and out of uniform, really get to me. There’s just something about an alpha male in uniform. When they’re wounded or broken and find their way back, just makes it better.

I enjoyed the story Because of You. It was a good story and a fairly easy read. I say fairly easy because it deals with some very heavy emotions and the dark side of soldiers returning from war. The PTSD and depression that goes along with dealing with injuries and the loss of life makes for a compelling story.

Shane and Jen are both scarred, albeit for different reasons, and find a way through their stress and depression to fall in love with each other. This is a touching and heart-warming story. Most of the characters were well developed and added a great deal to the story. The lent an air of reality to Shane and Jen’s story.

I enjoyed this story and I’m glad I read it, but I was hoping for a stronger romance. A majority of the book dealt with the war and the recovery of Shane and his injured soldiers. The romance seemed to be secondary to the story of the soldiers.
