4.5 Second Chances Stars Homefrontby Jessica Scott caught my interest the minute I d seen a fellow friend read it Married to an American veteran myself, I ve always gravitated towards military romance Couple that with a second chance love story, an angsty sounding book blurb, and I didn t hesitate to sign up I m happily impressed Army First Sergeant Gale Sorren has served his country well Multiple tours of duty, deployments into warzones has rendered him a somewhat broken man, suffering from pan [...]

OH GOD THE FEELS I am a SUCKER for second chance romances, and this to me was that at its most emotional Jessica Scott, BRAVO for writing such a beautiful, heartbreaking, emotional yet hopeful story and I CAN T WAIT to read the other books in this series ARC courtesy of Netgalley and Jessica Scott
3 You never struck me as a coward Stars.Every book I have read so far by Jessica Scott has grabbed me from the beginning and kept me in its hold until the end Homefront was no different in that it s beginning grabbed me, but sadly its grip loosened as the book progressed, I was pulled back in towards the 70 75% mark, but there was a little too much going on in the middle for me, and it diluted the parts of the story that I wanted depth and attention spent on I would say now though that my revie [...]
04 01 2015Well, let me first say, I m a Jessica Scott fan tried and true However, saying this, Homefront isn t my favorite book by this fantastic author.Not sure why Not sure what Just know, it didn t suck me in like most of her others have done The majority have been 5 Star reads for me.Let s start with what I liked about this book 1 I liked Gale and to some degree Melanie I think their parenting skills sucked They are basically held captive by their monster teenager I know this can happen, but [...]
This was such a good second chance romance Gale and his wife Melanie have been divorced for 15 years Gale has been in the military and away for most of those years but has never gotten over his ex wife They share a 16 year old daughter together who is going through some challenges When Gale gets stationed close to his family, it s the perfect opportunity for him to get back what he lost all those years ago I really enjoyed this story There was so much going on and some really difficult situation [...]
It was easy to look at him sitting across from her at her kitchen table and embrace the fantasy man in uniform that so many pined for But the reality of loving a man in uniform was so much harder It was long nights without phone calls it was missed births and birthdays.It was acceptance of being alone and sharing this man with the army And the army was a demanding mistress.Rarely do I get to read such a real story as this, Homefront is the first in its series and readers are going to need to str [...]
Review also posted at My Book Snack4.5 StarsJessica Scott always gets me with her military hero romances, and reading Homefront did not disappoint Gale Sorren has waited years to come home His wife divorced him when their daughter was a baby, but he s always wanted to get the chance to fix his broken family to get a second chance He was never expecting the amount of tension he would walk into when he finally connects with his family again.Parts of this story absolutely broke my heart Melanie has [...]
It s books like this that make me so happy that I sign up for blog tours and review such fantastic books When I finished this I went to and was super happy to see this author has other books out I ll certainly be reading some of hers This was a brilliant read I thoroughly enjoyed every word of it I do love a good second chance story and this was a really good one The author did a great job of portraying the characters as real and the storyline was believable I m not gonna repeat the synopsis or [...]
No one writes military romance like Jessica Scott It s not panty dropping hot, but it s raw and it s real and the woman CLEARLY knows what she writes That being said, this book missed the mark for me The reunion took place too quickly for my taste, Gale s dark moment didn t move me and the sub plot frequently overshadowed the romance Not a bad read, but certainly not as good as I d expected.
review to come
I love Jessica Scott s Coming Home series so I was really excited to find out she was writing a spin off and couldn t wait to read Homefront Although you ll spot some familiar faces if you ve read the previous stories each full length novel focuses on a different couple and works really well as a stand alone I ve loved all of the books I ve read by this author though and would happily recommend any of them Homefront is a story about second chances, it s about reconnecting with old loves, letting [...]
Review Copy Provided by Publicist via NetGalleyHomefront oh where to start and no that s not a bad thing This is the first book in Jessica Scott s new series also aptly named Homefront and is a spin off of her popular Coming Home series I wanted to point this out up front, because a if you haven t read her coming home series, you need to high tail yourself to your nearest book dealer and purchase them and b because you may encounter spoilers for couples in those books so you have been warned.In [...]
Homefront brings the war home in this new series from Jessica Scott Some tough issues are tackled throughout this book of the men and women who return home with anger issues, drug addiction, anxiety attacks and even child abuse As with most of the books this author writes she doesn t pull any punches in showing us the darker side of military life Each man or woman comes back with their demons and its up to them on how hard they are going to work on them or not Its taken First Sergeant Gale Sorre [...]
This was a nice read and it s totally my fault that I didn t like it as much as I could and would in other circumstances You see, I wanted a romance story and while this book included romance, the main point was a man trying to get his family back A great premise to be sure, but something I would read in a time where I didn t mind my books not having romance as a main theme Still, it was well written and a little bit sad so I recommend you read it

The truth was he was a better soldier than a husband or father, and he always had been Hell, there was a reason why he worked so hard He was good at the army It wasn t a job to him It was who he was It was what he was good at He knew how to lead soldiers, how to get their confidence up to be the first man in the stack As far as I m concerned, Ms Scott always manages to bring something different and interesting to the table Of the many books she has written where soldiers come back home, she has [...]
military secondchanceromance amzn 1H4BRMgThis is a powerful second chance romance starring First Sergeant Gale Sorren and his ex wife, Melanie Yes, I said ex wife This book is so much than a second chance romance it the rebuilding of a family Yu see Gale yes an unusual name for a man and Mel have a daughter, a 15 year old daughter named Jamie.Ms Scott does a wonderful job at painting a portrait for the reader of a past gone wrong, of young love with all its naive notions and unsaid words creati [...]
Review copy courtesy of the publisher.I feel like such a failure when I DNF a book But there are just some books that you can see aren t going to work for you, no matter what happens That s how I feel about this one.Individually, the hero and the heroine were just fine I liked them well enough, I suppose But they were married, had a child and then divorced and I don t really enjoy stories about divorced couples getting back together I don t know why I guess all the excitement and the unknown jus [...]
ARC provided by author in exchange for a n honest review.What I love about Jessica Scott s writing is that she has a way of presenting a very realistic portrayal of the hardships faced for both returning veterans and their families but yet still give hope that there can be a HEA Her stories have a realism that very few authors can accurately portray and still have a book that will have mass appeal Gale has spent the past 16 years trying to garner the courage to be the man that his ex wife deserv [...]
Another great start to a new series from jessica Scott beautifully written and created lover her writing and her creativity Loved First sergeant Gale Sorren and his story reunited with his ex wife Melanie and there daughter he had made some huge mistakes letting them go but the Army was always in the way putting his career before his family His family need him now and he was going to fight for them both Melanie wonders wether she can trust a man who has let her and there daughter down but her lo [...]
3.5 stars Although this is only a 3.5 star from me, it was really good view spoiler I really needed the Hero to buck the f up I mean it took over half the book for him to do so Which in turn dragged it out hide spoiler Love second chance romance Loved the characters connection Their chemistry Their Passion The main characters to me felt realistic I could connect to them and feel Which is freakin awesome, considering it takes ALOT to reel me into a story and stay til the end Looking forward to re [...]
Love this author so much and this fantastic book is her latest Trust me, if you ve read her books before or not you won t be disappointed In this book we get a good look at what difficulties a military family has to endure Though the both still loved each other neither was strong enough to keep their young family together Now, fourteen years later Gale Sorren has finally gotten stationed near his ex wife and daughter and he plans to do everything in his power to piece that family back together.T [...]
A good book so why 3 stars For 46% of the book we hear about how the H was never there for h and daughter, the Army was his demanding mistress, etc h takes him back immediately he didn t have to say 10 words It pissed me off After he knew she was receptive he put forth some effort but by then I was pissed off at him for the rest of the book.
DNF 52%In a book funk and I could not get into this one
4.5 stars Review to come but for once I didn t cry Usually Sott rips my heart out but not this time And it was still damn good.
Hero basically not in daughter s life for 16 years Not going to work for me.
A man gives his all for his career in the Army, but if he sacrificed so much along the way and his regrets lead him to hope that with this new assignment to Ft Hood, he may see his hope fulfilled A woman couldn t handle the rigors of Army life with a young child and a husband gone for long periods of time Regrets for not sticking it out Sure But now he there and he s a whole new man wanting time with his daughter and maybe a chance with his ex wife Dare she take the opportunity or should she pro [...]
BETH S 4.5 STAR REVIEW Homefront is another fabulous read by Jessica Scott that I am so glad I picked up I am a huge sucker for second chance love romances and I really enjoy military romances so when Jessica Scott decided to put the two together, she s got me hooked and wanting to read it And after reading the blurb on this one I knew I had to add it to my TBR Although I must say my full excitement about this book didn t really come until I started to read the prologue Just recently I picked up [...]
