This was a book I never intended to read. The reasons why I give in my blog.

http://apleasantbook.blogspot.com.au/...

Soraya Lane writes well on a sensitive subject and I found the hero and heroine engaging even though the hero was a low beta with the looks of an alpha and I couldn't quite believe Penny as a sargeant in the army. If the subject matter was anything different I'd say it was a nice sweet book with pretty good writing and well constructed. For that I gave it the three stars. But I cou

This was a different kind of story. I really wasn't sure at first if I was going to like it. I was firmly on Penny's side -- I don't know that I would forgive him either. But the more I read of the book, the more I came to believe that their marriage could be saved. They obviously did love each other and their daughter. I could see that Daniel deeply regretted what he had done and would do anything to save them. I could also see and understand Penny's reluctance to trust him. I liked the way the ...more
Lily Rose
The story is well written and the hero grovels a lot and I love to see a man in tears (and here it happens more than once) but, there's one, I can't think it's realistic to get over his betrayal in just one week even if there's still love between them and above all since she's soon leaving again at the end of her week leave.
If a week was all they nedeed to solve the issues that led to his cheating they could have done the talking the week before her previuos leave. The story is good but a week i

A beautiful warm story that tugs on your heart strings from the very beginning. It's not the kind of book that I would normally read but once I started reading I just couldn't stop.

Daniel and Penny are in the middle of a crisis and their young daughter is the only thing keeping them together. To make matters worse, Penny is only on leave from the military from 7 days. Can Daniel make things right and regain her trust in such a short amount of time?

The story tackles a well known problem in alot o

Just a warning - this features a hero who cheated on his wife. I felt that this book did a great job of touching on difficult topics - soldiers returning home and infidelity. I'd give it a higher rating, but I find it really hard to believe that a couple could resolve their issues in a week after the husband has a one night stand. Otherwise an excellent read.

I bought this after reading the review over on The Misadventures of Super Librarian (Super Wendy to most folks). So glad I did -- the subject matter is touchy. It's not an insta-fall-in-love story. The couple is already married and have a four year old daughter. They were both in the military, but they decided they'd both leave at the end of their terms. Except the heroine has been "stop-lossed" which means that even though she's served her term, the army won't let her out and she's forced to st ...more

I liked the heroine, but found the hero whiny.... and almost jealous that his wife was called back up and forced to serve and he felt sorry for himself for being left behind and I think he purposely screwed around to show how upset he was but during this self pity thing realized how immature and pathetic it made him. I he groveled somewhat but still made it as it was a problem "they" had...no you arrogant fool...she was serving overseas and I imagine with guys hotter than you everyday and night ...more

I would not be able to do it. I couldn't forgive my husband if he cheated on me while I was off in war. He was a selfish bastard and she forgave him. Maybe that makes me a little bit evil and bitter but personally I would of chopped off his dick.
The Romance Evangelist
This book showed that adultery can be properly addressed in a genuine romance without ruining what makes a story a romance in the first place. It's a step above the average category length book.

Back in the Soldier's Arms is heartwarming. After Daniel has made one unforgivable mistake, he knew that he will need to regain Penny's trust. Both are in the armed services but Daniel has finished his terms. Like most military man, he had to adopted to civilian life but not able to figure out how. Feeling alone and getting stupidly drunk, he has one night of indiscretion which he told Penny about. Penny's term was extended. She couldn't leave until she finished serving her military term. Both h ...more

Un libro sobre las segundas oportunidades, corto, pero bueno.
