I hope you’re having a wonderful February and enjoying as much reading as you like. Speaking of reading, I was asked if I’d like to join in on a blog tour of a second book in a series whose previous book I read and enjoyed.
Of course I said yes because I’ve been looking forward to reading the book for some time! I would like to note that though I was given a digital ARC via Netgalley from the publisher, all thoughts are my own.
This is the story of two people who have had their fair share of challenges to overcome, life hasn’t quite gone the way they planned and are given another chance that neither expected. It’s also a story of how much PTSD affects soldiers in a variety of different ways and the importance of having support as well as programs available to help soldiers transition from active duty to civilian life.
I loved the banter that Greer and Emmett had who weren’t afraid to speak their minds to each other and essentially gave each other kicks in the butts to start following their dreams and offering support. Emmett is missing a limb from a routine patrol gone wrong which is something he feels self conscious about but Greer shows him that there’s so much more to life than focusing on something he had no control over.
I love the bond that forms between Ally and Greer through a love of music and recognize kindred spirits in each other after some time.
My heart ached for Ally who is trying to deal with her Dad’s death while he was on active duty, several horrible fellow classmates, stress about her Mom and the added struggle of being a teenager who wants to fit in but is so angry particularly with losing her Dad.
This book kept my attention from beginning to end and I highly recommend reading this story though be prepared to have your heartstrings tugged on!
Full of humor, the power of music, a glimpse into the military, small town life, romance and the importance of family whether blood or by choice.
Looking forward to reading more books in the future!
Well that wraps up my bookish Ramblings for the time being. I hope you’re loving the books that you’ve read so far this year and staying warm particularly if you’re in an area with similar temps to MN. Thank you for dropping by and I’ll return soon with more bookworm love.
