♥♥♥♥ This is a love story. Not your average, run of the mill, boy meets girl story, because this one, especially if you are a dog person, will grab your heart. From the war in Afghanistan to the streets of L.A., our girl fights through PTSD, and the after effects of war and loss. Our boy, stateside, is doing the same but from a completely different set of violent circumstances. Drawn to each other, they learn to trust and love again. They bring out the best in each other and begin to heal. Read their story. You’ll cheer them on and cry, and want to punch the wall sometimes. I think I even uttered the words, “You big dummy! Don’t talk to her like that” at least once. I loved this book. I wanted more.
