This was a different story. It was really good, but it’s not very often I read a story where the Groom is the one who is pushing for the wedding.
Jocelyn (Jo) Swann, a no-nonsense single woman, she isn’t afraid to say what is on her mind, and she doesn’t take any crap from anyone. She runs a local news paper that was started by her grandfather and she cares for her aging grandmother who has dementia. Her best friend is in the SAS, Australian military. They have been friends since they were very young.
Dan Jansen, Jocelyn’s best friend. Dan is single and a man who feels that he has to take care of everyone in his life. He is a protector and a fierce friend. He is deployed for six months and when he comes home he is not the same man. He lost two very close friends during deployment and to others were seriously injured, whether physically or mentally. He has a new take on life after this deployment and he has retired from the service. He plans to take over the farm that was run by his father now and make a life there.
After a breakup that Jo had a few years prior, Dan and Jo signed a marriage pact on the back of a coaster. Since Dan has gotten home from deployment he is bound and determined to fulfill that contract and marry Jo. The problem is that Jo has changed as well. She has gone through somethings while he was away and she is afraid to make the committment to Dan.
Most of the story goes through Dan trying to convince Jo to marry him and her trying to get everyone in town to believe that it is a joke. I like how Dan is so committed to Jo and the way that their lives are so intertwined. It is refreshing to read a story where the one who has reservations about commitment is the woman and not the man. I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading the next in the Special Forces Series: Stand-In Wife, Ross Coltrane’s story. Ross is one of the men that served with Dan and he is also a very close friend. He is in this story and I would love to get to know him more. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Bliss.
I thing I liked the best about this book was the relationship Jo has with her grandmother. The author spends a lot of time on the story of coping with dementia and shows some of the hardest parts of caring for an ill loved one. It was rather beautiful.
The breast cancer took second place, in my opinion. It surfaces later in the book. The author made the best friend’s reaction to her news sensitive and perfect. Jo’s reaction to her cancer was flawed and human.
The groom’s survivor guilt was repeatedly mentioned throughout the book but it was dealt with last. The bride’s solution needed a bit more work, in my opinion.
Each of these issues make a good story but together, it’s a bit overwhelming. Then you throw in the issues going on with people in the background and you get chaos. That’s life though. I found I became confused about one of the characters at the end. I realize the author needed to set up for the next story but I wish there would’ve been one less thing happening.
The grammar needed work as well. Authors tend to forget not to start sentences with “but” or “and”. Also, never use “had had”. One “had” is enough.
It’s a good, quick read so enjoy. I think this author has potential. Happy reading my fellow bookworms!
A good read with a bit of steam but also heart warming sensual scenes between them. I did enjoy Dan’s persistence, not giving up and the emotions he shows when he learns the truth about Jo. Jo was a strong, independent woman who doesn’t like to rely on anyone and tries to do it all herself. I liked how when they finally realized that they were in love with each other, they also realized they could rely on each other. I was a bit confused as to why she did what she did to Dan at the end...not sure what she was trying to do and prove to Dan. I also would have liked an epilogue as it just seemed to end as soon as it got really good.
