Christmas is the perfect time to start from scratch

Lieutenant Sully Jax saved his unit during an IED attack, but he couldn't save his marriage. He can't even remember it. Recovered from his injuries, he's come home to the family and friends he knows-and an ex-wife who's a stranger to him.

Lucy Crabtree was heartbroken last Christmas when Sully announced his plan to go on one last tour of duty, and devastated when he asked for a divorce after he awoke in the hospital with no memory of her. She's finally moving on from her hurt and from losing the man she loved more than anything, and her cookie-baking business is taking off just in time for the holidays. But now Sully's back, and she can't deny she still loves him. But how can she trust her heart to someone who breaks it every time she sees him?

Sully might not remember Lucy, but something inside won't let her go. With every bite of her cookies, he finds a new love for Lucy, and he soon realizes he wants to rebuild his life...with her by his side.

I hated him.

Okay I get he is a hero and is living with a brain injury, but once you know you've destroyed someone and asked for a divorce back off. Far far off and let her get on with her life. What a selfish jerk. Showing up at her work and forcibly kissing her?? That's assault not love. She needed a backbone and some self respect. "Why did she leave me?" During their marriage he made every choice to leave without ever talking first and even ditched her after he promised to stay. Maybe his brain forgot because it couldn't handle qhat a collassal piece of garbage he was. Was he a hero. Yes. Was he a decent human being? Nope. A decent husband...not even a little bit. I thought he was a complete and total jerk and that everyone in their small town coddled him and made her feel like a pariah...seriously not worth my time. I truly detested every single thing about him. I'd have really liked for her to knee him right in the groin. Hard. Going back to him was a huge disappointment.
