Homefront by Jessica Scott

Homefront #1

A breathtaking new series from USA Today Bestselling author Jessica Scott

He’s always loved her...

First Sergeant Gale Sorren waited a war and half a lifetime for a chance to be stationed near the ex-wife who left him years ago. When he finally musters the courage to see her, the life he imagined she was living was nothing close to reality.

She’s never stopped loving him...

Melanie never stopped loving Gale, never stopped worrying about him each time he headed off to war. But he’s never been there when she needed him and she’s had fifteen years to steel her heart against him.

When Gale moves to Fort Hood, he finally has a chance to make things right with Melanie and the daughter she raised without him.

But Mel can't trust her heart to a man who has always let her down.

My Thoughts…

Jessica Scott has always written books that keep it real.    She tells how military life affects a person and their families, how coming home from deployment can be so difficult, and how finding and keeping romance alive can be so tricky.    I get excited every time I find out she has a new book coming out.   I look forward to getting my hands on them and devouring them. 

Homefront is a story about teenage love that went wrong.   Gale joined the military and things fell apart with his wife and young daughter.   He left Melanie to raise their daughter on her own.  Now he has moved back to Fort Hood and wants to rejoin his family.    I cannot imagine how Melanie felt when she opened the door to Gale.   The betrayal and loss she felt after the divorce had to weigh heavy on her.  I cannot imagine being left to raise a baby alone, although I know a lot of strong women who do that successfully.   Melanie is incredibly strong.  She doesn’t need Gale, yet she realizes that if Gale is able and willing to rejoin the family and help her raise their daughter she needs to let him have that chance.   I definitely related to Melanie more than Gale, probably because she is a mother and her first response is to protect her daughter.

There are characters from her past book that make appearances in Homefront.  I love getting to catch up and see what they are up to now and look forward to more about them.   That being said, you do not have to read other Jessica Scott books to enjoy Homefront, but I recommend checking them out since they are just as amazing as this one is.   

I definitely recommend Homefront.   The rest of this series cannot come soon enough.
