Women in the military, especially in combat zones, has been an issue. This novel really gave me a sense of how both the men and women must act in order to keep relationships civil. During their romance, Raven asks Sawyer to voluntarily go back to the hospital where she was originally assigned, leaving the front lines. “I can't do my job if you're out there running around,” Raven says. At another point, Raven wants to kiss her but Sawyer is busy helping village children and says, “Let me do my job. Please.” Even though this is a romance, it does point out the difficulty of men and women on the battlefield together. Emotions and hormones run high in situations where life is so fragile.
This is a pretty intense romance as the relationship develops rather quickly. Sawyer's character is developed well as the novel is from her viewpoint. Raven remained pretty aloof as far as his character development goes. He is the team leader and responsible for his men, so he takes a somewhat hard attitude. When the romance developed, I was a little surprised at his emotion. It just seemed to appear without warning.
There is some mild swearing, but nothing one would not expect on the battle field. This novel shows how romance might occur in the military under battlefield conditions.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
Favorite character? Definitely Tahk. He's not really Emme's older brother, only her guard, but he represents the big brother every girl without one wishes they had. He is the ultimate good guy. In my opinion, he was the glue that held the entire story together. Sure, the developing relationship between Raven and Emme was fun too, but Tahk was the character I enjoyed the most.
There is definitely a bit of violence and gore in the book as the author tries to give the reader an idea of how horrific it must be in a combat zone but Emme represents all of the strong, courageous women we have in our armed forces. I found my heart breaking for her several times in the story but also hoping for her happiness.
The book isn't overly lengthy so it would make a great weekend book. I would completely recommend it. Enjoy!
This author did a fantastic job with this story. I absolutely loved the main characters in this story. The author wrote this in such a way I felt as if I was right there with the characters feeling the emotions they were going through.
Really hope this author is busy writing another brilliant story.
The characters felt legitimate, trying their best to console each other and keep morale boosted. There is realism in the battles scenes as well. Doogie is portrayed as a Christian and she cites Bible verses when caring for the injured. Sometimes, she thinks a verse for her own encouragement. However, if someone wasn’t familiar with the Bible, they may think her thoughts were odd. She ponders, “Don’t be afraid of those that want to kill you. They can only kill the body; they cannot do any more to you.” This is Matthew 10:28 but wasn’t identified as such. Overall, the story starts out very quickly with a lot of action, but I felt the latter quarter is rather repetitive in the romance portion of the novel. The romance is sweet and not explicit. I rated A Thousand Stolen Moments at 3 out of 5.
