“Ms. Scott gets down to the nitty-gritty of the military life! The story she tells is utterly heart breaking….All For You was an amazing read, and this is the best of the series by far!” ~ Under the Covers

I am in awe with Ms. Scott’s talent to touch your heart through her knowledge and experience in the military life. Though All For You is fiction, the story touches real military issues, real life emotions and it will open your eyes to reality. Ms. Scott gets down to the nitty-gritty of the military life! The story she tells is utterly heart breaking.

Sergeant First Class Reza Iaconelli struggles with sobriety on a daily basis, but even if he wanted to drink, he just doesn’t have the time now. There is much to be done, and he has charges to take care of. A couple of his men suffer from PTSD and other emotional issues. This forces him to work with a shrink who happens to be a beautiful Captain. But what shocked him is that this girl has no problem standing up to him. No, Captain Emily Lindberg is no push over. She has made a name for herself in a military hospital on her own. Her goals are to provide help for her patients and advocate for them accordingly. No one will convince her otherwise.

Reza and Emily’s relationship is very complicated. They did not have a good start and their lives are full of issues. What I love about their relationship is that it survived the worst before it even really began. Of course, the attraction was there from the very beginning. I mean, who wouldn’t be attracted to Reza. The man exudes power, physical strength, confidence and a bod to die for. And if he wanted to, he knows how to woo a woman. Yup the flirtations were sweet. I really like how their relationship came together.

Though the romantic element is strong, the subplot is what got my attention. Reza along with his men are dealing with issues such as PTSD, chemical dependency, alcoholism, and suicide. I really felt for them. Their struggles and frustrations with the service are conveyed through the pages. I can see how these illnesses can be such a sensitive matter. They are all ticking time bombs, ready to explode at any second. I really would like to discuss this matter and other specifics of this book, but it will only lead to spoilers. All I can say is that there are those who will fall and those who will survive.

All For You was an amazing read, and this is the best of the series by far! You won’t want to miss this installment.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

    Glad you liked this one too, Angela. I am so into this series and I was so curious for when Reza got his own book. It was pretty intense- in a good way.
