Back to You (Coming Home #3) by Jessica Scott

Title: Back to You
Author: Jessica Scott
Series: Coming Home #3
Release Date: January 7, 2014


He's in for the fight of his life . . .

Army captain Trent Davila loved his wife, Laura, and their two beautiful children. But when he almost lost his life in combat, something inside him died. He couldn't explain the emptiness he felt or bridge the growing distance between him and his family—so he deployed again. And again. And again . . . until his marriage reached its breaking point. Now, with everything on the line, Trent has one last chance to prove to his wife that he can be the man she needs . . . if she'll have him

. . . to win back his only love.

Laura is blindsided when Trent returns home. Time and again, he chose his men over his family, and she's just beginning to put the pieces of her shattered heart back together. But when Trent faces a court martial on false charges, only Laura can save him. What begins as an act of kindness to protect his career inflames a desire she thought long buried—and a love that won't be denied. But can she trust that this time he's back to stay?

Five Stars 

I knew Back To You was going to be hard to read! The previous books in this series gave us an idea of Laura and Trent's crumbling marriage. While she's at home working and raising two young kids, he kept deploying over and over again, shutting her out more and more each time. It got to the point where Laura reached her breaking point and had to accept she may have lost her husband completely. Then he came home. Trent was being accused of something, so he came to home to deal with that, and during this time he learns to face his own demons and accept responsibility for what he did to his family.

Boy, did this story tear me apart! Jessica Scott wrote a story filled with realistic and raw emotions. She made me feel the anguish, the disappointments, and the helplessness for both Laura and Trent that I really couldn't take a side. Trent basically had to re-wire his body and mind to adjust to being home. He literally didn't know how to be with his family, cute hamsters and all. When this story begins, Laura has waited so long for Trent that she's actually ready to move on. I loved how the broken dishwasher Laura is dealing with at home is symbolic of her broken marriage...all laid out in pieces. I loved that we get to see their good friends again (Shane, Jen, Vic and Nicole) and witness them all supporting each other, injecting wise words and humor throughout.

Back to You is certainly a story of second chances. It's a story of a soldier coming home. It's a journey of a husband and wife slowly nurturing their neglected marriage. Thank you, Jessica Scott, for using your background, experiences, and expertise to give Laura and Trent such a touching and well-deserved story!
