Yours Truly, Cammie


I follow one rule in life: Don’t get involved with a Marine.

After this past year of heart-wrenching misery, and an entire childhood as daughter of one of the highest ranked officers in the Marine Corps, I’ve had enough of saying goodbye. I’ve had enough heartbreak to last me a lifetime.

But in an attempt to avoid an awkward run-in with a previous blind date, whom I may or may not have abandoned mid-dinner, I found myself standing in an exam room with Lucas Wells. He was exceptionally handsome on the outside, but the second he started to run that egotistical mouth of his, I wanted to do one of two things: smack him or kiss him.

Lucas Wells, the United States Marine, has me bending my rule in more ways than one.

But the real question is, will I succumb to breaking my rule altogether, or will he break me before I even get the chance?

My Review:

This story, first and foremost, is a military love story. A young woman who has been raised in a military home with a father who is a general and a brother who died as a marine; She has felt love and loss for those who she holds most dear. This is why Cammie has the rule that she does about not ever letting herself fall for a marine.

However, when a chance encounter happens between Cammie and Lucas at the hospital where Cammie is an emergency room nurse, they can immediately feel the attraction. Even worse, Lucas ends up living right next door. As they continue to fight their feelings for one another, they realize they are inexplicably drawn to one another. Who will give in first? Will Cammie continue to stand by her rules to protect her heart from any more pain or will Lucas break her down?

0715181020b_hdr31013828.jpgThe characters in this story are not only vibrant with intriguing personalities, but they are also entirely relevant to our current time and age. With most families today being affected in some shape or form by knowing someone that has enlisted in the military, we can all relate on some level with the pain that those suffer from finding out their loved ones are lost forever.

There is a lot of humor throughout the story, with Cammie and Lucas playing pranks on one another as they try to deny their true feelings. But there are also amazingly steamy scenes as they break down their walls and let go. But – you’ll have to read it to find our for yourself!

An enjoyable emotional roller coaster with twists and turns that I was not expecting, but always with the satisfying romance ending that we all crave and need in our lives.
