Publisher's Summary

Savannah St. Claire grew up in a town where she was constantly bullied. Her only friends were brothers Billy and Travis Blue. The three of them were inseparable.

Billy Blue joined the Army when he turned 18 and was deployed to Afghanistan soon after. Four years later, Billy returns home and things are forever changed for this man who heroically fought for his country. He not only has to overcome his physical limitations, but he must confront his feelings for Savannah. With his confidence broken, he comes to the realization that there could be no way she would ever love him enough to look past the scars he possesses both inside and out.

What happens when two brothers love the same woman? Can broken hearts be mended? Will true love prevail above all else?

    Story
    "True Love prevails!"

    Military romance! I love books like this..the devoted girl, the injured war hero. There is nothing better than a good love story focusing on this. Savannah is home, heart broken that her high school sweetheart, Billy has broken up with her before leaving for the army. Billy is heart broken in the army, pining away for the love of his life, Savannah. When Billy comes home, will their love have survived the test of time? Will Savannah have moved on....and with who? Will she be able to overlook the disfigurement and mental anguish Billy now lives with? Nicole Garcia writes a heart felt love story with these two characters sure to give you the feels and passion needed to portray this kind of story. You will fall in love with the all the characters(love Billy's mom) and bring that sense of true love to your heart.

    Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross portray this story to perfection. You can feel the pain and love each character feels along with them as the story goes on. Love this book!

    Any additional comments?

    We meet a broken hearted Savannah, who was left behind by army boyfriend Billy. Billy left making Savannah believed he didn't love her any longer. Even after four years had passed, Savannah is still deeply in love with Billy. Hoping that one day Billy would come back and tell her he made the biggest mistake of her life, but he never did. A very good military love story.

    "Good quick listen"

    Who doesn't like a man in uniform? Nicole Garcia does a good job of bringing this story to life. It's a little bit angsty and a little bit steamy, but sweet at the same time. A second-chance story with a nice HEA. Definitely worth a listen.

    Yes. The book was good. I really love Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross and they are the reason I wanted to listen to this book.

    There were some things I didn't like but they are personal preference. I think the book will be enjoyable to others the way it is.


    Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross – was your favorite?

    I would love a story on Travis. He was a character that really stuck with me.

    I liked this book. It was a short listen but it was enjoyable. I liked the Billy and Savannah as a couple. I liked the resolution to the story. I would definitely listen to another book from these narrators and would also be open to another book by this author. I would recommend this book if you want a short listen and a sweet story.

    "Compelling yet not to heavy"


    I really enjoyed this book. This was a different book by Nicole Garcia than what I am used to. The characters felt more real. Not that they don't normally, but I really felt like so many soldiers and families could identify with the characters. I thought she did a great job of bringing the seriousness of veterans, military families, and what they face, into a sweet love story. It wasn't overly intense and she doesn't beat you over the head with it, but makes you think about the real life lives of these people. Great job. And, of course the narration by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross was wonderful. This is nice, sweet, short read that doesn't disappoint. I was provided this audiobook as an ARC.

    the narration was excellent and in a nutshell Billy came home from the war damaged. Can Savannah reach through his pain and troubled mind and rescue Billy? What aboutTravis, Billy's brother who stayed behind to take of mama and charged with watching over Savannah? What of Savannah herself? Billy broke her heart before he left, read and find out if Billy can or will be saved.
    Billie comes homes damaged in many ways, will he heal himself and what of Savannah ??? get tie book an see

    "Wonderful story"

    I loved this story. I have always loved when veterans find their happy ending (especially seeing as I live with one). This is one of those stories that I will always be completely behind. I loved how well Kai and Wen did when reading this and how they made you feel and understand a bit better what our men go through. I loved how Nicole wrote the story and you could feel so much for Billy and Savannah and get an idea of everything they felt and went thorough together. This was such a great story I cant really express it.
