“… war fucks everybody without discretion …” I just happened to see this quote from another book right after finishing After the War and it hit me that it describes this book perfectly.

I’m going to apologize for the language now in this review – going to have to do some major editing to post on Amazon. Fucked describes many of the people’s lives that this book is about. Jessica’s books don’t just deal with the main H/h they also deal with those that are under their command or that they serve with, and their spouses and kids. The same bullshit that goes on outside of the Army – adultery, alcoholism, stealing, sabotaging and a host of other things also happen within. Even though these men and women are to an extent held up to higher standards no matter what they are human and are going to make mistakes and sometimes those mistakes can cost lives or alter their course in the Army (or whatever branch of service they happend to be in).

As with all of this authors book’s she writes such realistic stories about war and relationships of people who’ve seen things that totally alter their perception of the world they knew before serving. She doesnt try and shove down our throats it all hearts and roses she shows the ugly side of war which for me personally I dont know any other way war could be but ugly.

WOW! This one touched me in so many ways I don't know where to start. There are several stories going on in this one, each one special and unique. It's a touching reunion story between the H/h, Sarah and Sean, but the rekindling of their feelings for each other brings along feelings of guilt and great loss. This series sheds light on what our soldiers face once they return from war, and how difficult it can be dealing with day to day life while serving in the military. This is a fantastic story and I highly recommend everyone have it on their must read list. ( )
