“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.
