Excerpt: Chapter 1
"A by-the-book captain with a West Point background, Captain Evan Loehr refuses to mix business with pleasure—except for an unguarded instance years ago when he succumbed to the deep sensuality of redheaded beauty Claire Montoya. From that moment on, though, Evan has been at odds with her, through two deployments to Iraq and back again. But when he is asked to train a team prepping for combat alongside Claire, battle-worn Evan is in for the fight of his life.
Strong, gutsy, and loyal, Captain Claire Montoya has worked hard to earn the rank on her chest. In Evan, Claire sees a rigid officer who puts the rules before everything else—including his people. When the mission forces them together, Claire soon discovers that there is more to Evan than meets the eye.
He’s more than the rank on his chest; he’s a man with dark secrets and deep longings. For all their differences, Evan and Claire share two crucial passions: their country and each other." ~ From Goodreads
The story was good, and who can resist a cover like that, there is just something a bout a well built guy and dog tags, am I right? Okay but about the story, I realized reading this that I'm not the target audience though I read tons of romance - why you might ask? Well because being Scandinavian I've never gotten the american patriotism - so to be honest all the military stuff kinda went over my head.
That said I did enjoy Evan and Claire as characters their emotional depths and their passion, I loved it how they sort of rant around each other testing the waters without taking a dip - but that said they did have fire and chemistry when they got together.
Rating Until There Was You is going to be two sided sword for me, on one hand I loved the chemistry and the dance but in the other the military side put me off in the sense that I didn't get it, which means I also never got fully invested while reading. I guess I'll just have to go halfsies and hope you caught my drift.
