Publisher's Summary

Can Christmas wishes lead to Valentine kisses?
War is hell, especially for those left behind to deal with the loss of loved ones. When an IED explosion devastates the lives of Army field medic Roberto 'Cam' Camareno and Nicole Murphy, both believe their promise of tomorrow has been shattered.
Army field medic Cam helplessly watches his fatally wounded friend die in his arms, wishing he could take his place. Cam is the one who should die, not his friend who has a fiancée waiting back home. Instead of getting his wish, Cam promises to take care of Nicole. How on earth can he do that when survivor's guilt paralyzes him?
After losing the love of her life and having her future blown away with his death, Nicole fears her broken heart will never heal. Even now, a year later, she still grieves. Then she meets Cam and her life changes for the better. Love has the ability to heal, but only if the heart is open to accepting love.
As these two struggle to come to grips with the past, can they find the promise of tomorrow?

*** I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first Sandy Loyd book, and was hesitant because it was #5 in the series. I always like to read my books in order. This book worked perfectly as a stand alone, and was absolutely captivating. I love books about veterans and enjoyed this one from beginning to end. The beginning from Afghanistan and the tragedy that occurred there, to a second chance at love and life the story kept me enthralled. Cam and Nicole both had a lot of healing to do, and were able to find the ability to become whole again with each other. I found Nicole's family warm and loving, but especially loved Cam's mom and Anthony. Anthony was a wonderful advice giver and was the last one I expected for Cam to listen to.

Carol Dines is a wonderful narrator, her voice is very rich and captured the essence of the book with her narration. Loved this and will be looking for the rest of the series to come out in audio.

I'm torn

Well, I'm not totally positive if this audiobook deserves a 3 or 4 star review. On the one hand, the background was believable with the hero being an ex-soldier and how he and his heroine met. I appreciated descriptions of the angst he felt and his struggles as a young person and as an adult were worth the download alone. Meddling parents are certainly mimic real life and added another layer to the story.
But one the other hand, the hero and his love did not have real chemistry. When a young woman first meets a man she analyzes his looks yet this character just spoke of the "zing" she felt when they touched. I don't want to be shallow but I can only picture both characters looks from the cover of the audiobook. I can't deny that not knowing what they wear to a New Year's Eve ball is important to my being more invested in the storyline. Also, the narrator was a bit slow to me. Dramatic pauses add to the drama but too many makes the book drag. Altogether the book was passable to me and the best part was the storyline. An audience of younger people would be best because the love scenes were glossed over and the language was PG.
