He came home a hero and lost the only woman he’s ever loved...
I have no idea how to survive without my beloved Ava. She had no choice but to move on with her life during my six-year deployment and has now married Eric. I hate him for taking her from me. I’d prefer to wallow in my depression and heartbreak, but the whole damned world wants a piece of the SEAL Team leader who helped capture the world’s most-wanted terrorist. I need help handling the relentless requests, and when Ava sends her new sister-in-law to manage the media circus for me, I’m prepared to hate her on principle. Her brother took my Ava. What else do I need to know about her?
It takes five seconds to realize Ava’s ex is going to be the most complicated and difficult client I’ve ever had, but the opportunity to represent the most celebrated man in the world could make my career. I’m determined to do the job, even if I dislike John from the moment I meet him. And I like everyone. So much so that my brothers worry about me being exploited by those who would take advantage of my unwavering love for others. But John… He’s in a class by himself, and his bitterness is a festering wound that I begin to wish I could somehow fix for him. The more time we spend together, the more our mutual disdain morphs into something that feels an awful lot like desire. There’s no way I can want this man, or so I tell myself, and when Eric finds out I’ve developed feelings for the man causing trouble in his new marriage, well…
That’s going to be a hot mess.

Could not put this book down. Brilliant!!
This was heartbreaking, heartwarming, absolutely incredible
All the feels
I was so excited for One Year Home and I was not disappointed, John’s story was everything I expected and so much more and this book will certainly be on my list of best reads for 2019.
There are only so many books that blow your mind and this story is one of them and I’m also really not sure my mere words can do this book justice so I’m just going to tell you how this book made me feel. I also think you need to read this book with no expectations so I’m not going to write a review that’s full of spoilers I’m just going to say this is MUST READ!! I thought nothing would top Five Years Gone how wrong was I because John’s story touched me on so many levels as he stole a piece of my heart that I’m really not sure I will ever get that piece back. I loved watching John and Julianne get to know each other and I loved watching their bond grow and develop. This author has given us a beautifully written love story, it will make you cry, it will make you sigh but it will also make you smile as this couple find the HEA they so deserve. I highly recommend this book but please read Five Years Gone first. Brilliant read that has all the feels.
