“If you’re reading Jessica Scott’s work for the first time and you like military themed books, you’ll find Falling for Me a very satisfying and enjoyable read.”  ~ Under the Covers

If you’re reading Jessica Scott’s work for the first time and you like military themed books, you’ll find Falling for Me a very satisfying and enjoyable read. This novel and her previous work focus on Veterans coming back from the war, surviving the aftermath and finding love. Who could resist a second chance for our fallen heroes, right?

Josh is back in the US trying to live a “normal” life. He starts by going back to college but has been finding himself out of place. The war broke him mentally and physically that fitting in was too difficult much less finding a relationship. When he meets Abby, things start to change in him. She stirs his body to life (literally and figuratively). Unfortunately, Abby has her demons to battle. Both their stories were heartbreaking, and it was good to see that they found each other.

I have read Ms. Scott’s last couple of novels and enjoyed them plenty. Unfortunately, not this time around. While her books are good, including this one, I found that the main storylines are now blending in to be the same. The injured veteran coming home and finally finding peace with the heroine theme was getting a little old for me. Again, the books are good and it earned a solid three stars from me, but I was hoping for something that makes this particular story stick out. Sadly, the story didn’t offer me anything new.

About Jessica Scott

Jessica Scott is a career army officer, mother of two daughters, three cats and three dogs, wife to a career NCO and wrangler of all things stuffed and fluffy. She is a terrible cook and even worse housekeeper, but she's a pretty good shot with her assigned weapon and someone liked some of the stuff she wrote. Somehow, her children are pretty well adjusted and her husband still loves her, despite burned water and a messy house.

She's written for the New York Times At War Blog, PBS Point of View Regarding War, and IAVA. She deployed to Iraq in 2009 as part of OIF/New Dawn and is currently a company commander stationed at Fort Hood.

Most recently, she's been featured as one of Esquire Magazine's Americans of the Year for 2012.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
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.
