Talia Adams met Antonios Davies (Tony) before he was sent overseas to Afghanistan to fight in the war. She asked to be his pen pal and told him that she would faithfully write him. Over his tour of duty, they wrote each often talking about anything and everything. Throughout this communication, Talia’s boyfriend left her and Tony started having romantic feelings for Talia. Tony put out some feelers to see if Talia felt the same way and Talia abruptly stopped writing him. Tony, unfortunately, was captured and thought to be dead.
Tony eventually returned home but experienced Post Traumatic Syndrome. The only thing that got him through his captivity and the aftermath was his thoughts of Talia. At first, Tony was going to abide by Talia’s decision not to talk to him but he decided to give it one more try to see if she had feelings for him. Both Tony and Talia had a lot of baggage that they had to overcome before they could give each other their hearts. I really liked how Tony decided to go full force no holds barred when trying to get Talia to give him a chance for romance.
This was a very entertaining novels with lessons to be learned by all of the characters in the book, including the minor ones. I easily read this book in one sitting because I couldn’t wait to read how the story ended. I give this story a Very Good rating.
