The book pretty much follows the same course as TEOC. However, we get to experience for the first time, all the hurt and sorrow that Seb has endured all the years he spent apart from his one true love. Getting his POV was at times insanely heartbreaking. With all the bravado he shows as a Marine, deep down he's still that 17 year-old boy who so desperately wanted to be loved. For his Caro to find a way to stay with him. To find him when he was finally of age. The hardness he had to cover himself with, in order to survive both his military training and his reluctant hate for his woman, was so sad to read at times. But the glimmer of hope, the small window of light that was thrust upon him when he and Caro reunite in the most unlikely of ways, began a healing process that was glorious to witness.
I enjoyed this book immensely and was grateful the author gave us Sebastian's POV. Moments I wanted to know how he felt from the original series are here, present and accounted for and it truly makes their journey complete. The extras at the end certainly satisfy my curiosity as to their lives now and I for one can now let them go.
The insight into the horrors of war and the frustration and utter heartache of PTSD is represented well here. I had a bit of trouble with Sebastian's failure to grow up at times but understood how his psyche was still very much stuck inside that 17 year-olds' head. Not to mention his anger at feeling like a failure for his woman. Caro is outstanding in her patience and never-ending love of her man, no matter what the circumstance. THAT is what will always stay with me: this is first and foremost a love that was meant to be despite everyone thinking otherwise. One that will be in my heart forever.
A solid 4 stars for one last ride with some old friends.
Sebastian and Caroline come face to face after ten years after their relationship tragically ended. They are both completely shocked when they see each other and neither one of them knows how to react. What do you do when the person you thought was your forever comes back into your life? Sebastian has been harboring so much anger towards Caroline for seven years and all of their memories come rushing back. But once he sees her he knows that their story isn't finished, and just like ten years ago their passion for each other cannot be stopped. This is the second chance that he was was never foolish enough to hope for. The only problem is that Caroline is a journalist who goes to the front lines for her stories and Sebastian is a United States Marine. They will both be putting their lives on the line very soon when they go on their new missions, Sebastian especially!
"I told you, Caro. It's only ever been you."
Sebastian is struggling with something that a lot of service men and women deal with and that's PTSD. Caroline is so strong the entire time. She is not giving up without a battle, and having lived her last ten years without him, she won't do it again. It was hard seeing Sebastian struggle the way he did! Having a sister and brother-in-law in the United States Marine Corps, I understand the struggles that soldiers face when coming back from deployment. Military life is not civilian life and it's hard to acclimate, so my heart went out to Sebastian.
The Education Of Sebastian made me fall in love with the 17 year old boy, but Semper Fi made me fall head over heels for the man! I had ALL. THE. FEELS! I now know where we got that 'tingling feeling' saying from, it came from reading books like this one! It started in my chest and ran all the way to my fingertips! This book is LOVE! I mean real earth shattering love! I wept when they were trying the feel out the relationship again, I wept when Sebastian was struggling with his body and mind, I wept when Caroline was coping with Sebastian lashing out, but I sobbed because I knew I wanted them together!
"Thank God for you, Caro."
"And you, Sebastian, semper fidelis."
They were indeed, always faithful.
Every time Jane Harvey-Berrick writes a book she kills me, figuratively of course. The writing is exceptional, the characters are perfection, and the story is absolutely spectacular! Pick up a Jane Harvey-Berrick book and you won't regret it!
