Anything for You is a short, sweet, touching story, revisiting Shane Garrison and Jen St. James from Because of You, the first book in Jessica Scott’s Coming Home series. If you haven’t already read Because of You, I would strongly encourage you to do so before reading this story, as it’s a continuation of Shane and Jen’s developing relationship.

Even when I read Jessica Scott's debut novel, Because of You, I was blown away by the emotional intensity and rawness she managed to put in words. Anything For You is the much awaited epilogue to that story, as we revisit Shane and Jen, the hero and heroine of Because of You and catch a glimpse of how life is for the couple after the "happily ever after". And while Anything For You is really short, it sure packs a strong emotional punch.

As you see from the blurb Jen is a breast cancer survivor a

I received an ARC of 'Anything For You" by Jessica Scott and loved it. It was so good to revisit Jen and Shane as their relationship and recoveries progress. Their story began in "Because of You" when Shane is seriously injured in Iraq and sent home to recover. Jen is the nurse assigned to his care and although she is recovering from her own struggle with cancer, throws her heart and soul into seeing that Shane pulls through a very difficult transition. In return Shane help heal some serious sca ...more

In this novella, Ms. Scott continues the story of Shane and Jen from “Because of You.” We begin this novella with Shane considering getting a vasectomy because of his fear of losing Jen should she get pregnant and her cancer return in a more aggressive form due to the pregnancy. At the same time that Shane is struggling with his fear and feeling of helplessness at the possibility of losing Jen, Jen is also struggling with her fear of Shane’s complete recovery and potential re-deployment.

In this novella we are brought back to Fort Hood, Texas where we first met Shane and Jen in Because of You. Readers who fell in love with these two characters will be delighted in this extra glimpse into their lives as a couple. As with all relationships, there are always a few bumps along the way and Shane and Jen are no exception.

This story is a must read for fans of Jessica Scott. I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting the couple and I know you will too!

This review might be considered spoilery if you have not read Because of You, Jen and Shane's story.

Anything For You takes place about a year after Jen and Shane's story left off in Because of You. Shane is still working hard in his recovery from his combat injuries. He and Jen are happy and as their relationship has progressed Shane has become fearful of losing Jen if she should become pregnant. Jen is a breast cancer survivor and a pregnancy could could ca

Back in 2011 I got a chance to read Because of You by Jessica Scott. This is where you first meet Shane Garrison and Jen St. James. I strongly suggest you read that story first, before jumping into this novella. However, it is just a suggestion. Here's why:

In Anything for You Shane and Jen have been together for sometime. Shane is about to do something and he's afraid to tell Jen what he is about to do. I don't know what the man was thinking when he thought i

Shane Garrison and Jen St. Clair have traveled a hellacious road to get to where they are today, happy and in love. But with redeployment looming, the only thing that really terrifies Shane is the possibility that Jen becoming pregnant will cause her cancer to come back.

I have never wanted to strangle, shake, strangle again and scream at a man as much as I wanted to with Shane. He makes an incredibly important decision based on his fear of Jen's cancer without talking to her. And when his decis

I am a huge fan of Jessica Scott. You can’t help but feel for each and every one of her characters which makes it easy to become invested in their story. In Anything for You, we get to revisit Shane and Jen who have very much been on my mind since book one.

First off, I was relieved to see Shane and Jen continuing towards their happily ever after. Shane is still recovering and dealing with not being able to return to his men. On top of

If you are looking for a sweet, short V-Day read, check out this little gift from Jessica Scott, and celebrate the holiday with Shane and Jen.

All of your favorite characters from BECAUSE OF YOU are back for a sweet little Valentine's Treat. This short has all the elements of your favorite Valentine's chocolates, it's hard on the outside like Shane's smokin hot bod, it's sweet and gooey on the inside, like Jen and how she gets when she is around Shane, and it can be gobbled up in less than an hou

In this short Valentine's Day story by Jessica Scott we revisit Shane and Jen from 'Because of You', as a conversation is going on between Vince Carponti and Shane during a workout in the base gymnasium. The talk revolves around personal fears, Jen, the Army, and their on-going rehabilitation.

The unspoken conversation concerns love . . .

Love is hard work, and no matter that Shane and Jen have declared their love to each other, with promises of marriage, their respective insecurities still remain

Anything for You was a lovely little revisit of Shane and Jen. Readers originally met them in Because of You. It has been some time since Shane met and fell in love with Jen. They are living together and starting to experience some of the day to day problems couple’s experience. Shane’s lack of smooth relationship knowledge adds some tension to the new relationship.

I loved Jen and Shane from the moment they walked onto the pages of Because of You. Getting to read how their relationship has prog

Okay for starters It really made me sad the feeling of Shane losing Jen because of her previous illness. As for Jen I understand her for wanting to have a kids on her own but there are huge possibilities it will take her own life for pursuing that. As for Shane I know that scares the hell out of him too knowing it could kill her eventually.

I was hoping Jessica will write another story more of Jen and Shane. I want their story to continue in short I wanted more of them.

Thank you Jessica you made

I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC copy of this story (Thanks Jess!)…Anything for You is a heartwarming follow-up novella to Jessica Scott's Because of You. In it we catch up with Shane & Jen as they come to terms with their individual fears of losing the other. With appearances by Vic Carponti & Laura Davila (some of my favorite characters from Because of You) Jessica gives a touch of the humor that I love in her writing. I can’t wait to see what Jessica’s got planned next for our ...more

Awww....it was so wonderful to catch up with Shane and Jen. I love reading romance. But often times, things fall together in a much too predictable way. Jessica does not fall into that easy peasy ending. But its a happy wonderful ending none the less. I am not sure how a man would like reading it. haha But it was real life like characters handling real life feelings, worries and problems. Together. Romance, hotsy totsy sex (of course, its Shane!!) friends and love love love....For a short story, ...more

Those of us who fell in love with Shane and Jen in Jessica's Because of You will be so pleased for this little glimpse at Shane and Jen's Happily Ever After.

This short story showcases all the humor we have come to expect out of Jessica Scott characters, and it deals with the emotions one has when you love someone.

There is a satisfying ending, and I hope with all my heart we get to see Jen use her Valentine's gift someday.

If you love Shane and Jen read this short story!

It was as good as I'd expected, funny and emotionally moving. I like that Jen and Shane's happily ever after is not a fairytale-like, but that they face and overcome difficult, real-life problems. I recommend it :)

A great story packed in few pages. Although part of a series, like all Jessica Scott books, it stands very nicely on its' own.

Happy Reading!

I thought the first book was bad with it ending 15% before it should have, but this one was worse! We only get 38% of a story, and the rest of the book is given over to excerpts for other books, including another novella by the author! This story wasn't even fully fleshed out, more like an idea of how she wanted to further develop the characters from Because of You that she turned into a Valentine's Day novella for more profit. At this point in the story, the characters are engaged, but we as re ...more

Adorable! What a great TRUE Love Story. Although, if you haven't yet read the rest of the author's series you should do so. This isn't a stand alone, but a continuation of a couple from Because of You, the first book in the Coming Home Series.

Now, on to what I thought of the novella. What an emotional story! Well written, attention holding, heart-wrenching then warming read! I loved it and will definitely be picking up the entire series.

I love reading novellas. They’re perfect for a quick late night read or a ‘in between’ book when you’re not quite ready to dig into another novel. They can be stand alone short stories or introductions to series, but I think my favorite type of novella is one that lets readers revisit characters that they have already been introduced to. That’s exactly what Jessica Scott treats readers to in Anything for You.

"Anything for You" is a continuation of SFC Shane Garrison's and Jen's story which began with "Because of You". However, this could be read as a stand alone, which I have. I now will be purchasing "Because of You" and "Until There Was You" (books 1 & 2 in the Coming Home Series).


We know from the synopsis that Jen is a breast cancer survivor and that Shane is also a survivor. Both do not want their past to define their future. However, they both fear the possibility of losing the other. They

**Disclaimer** I received an ARC (Advanced Review Copy) from the author in exchange for a fair & unbiased review.



This short story takes place a few months after "Because of You", with Shane and Jen. With their wedding approaching and Shane's recovery from having been blown up going well, Shane has turned his thoughts to having a family with Jen... not in the way you would think. In this emotional short story, you see the demons that both Jen and Shane still continue to face and fight.

Wanna know what happened to Shane Garrison and Jen from "Because of You", well I definitely wanted to know and I am so happy that Jessica Scott wrote this short story of them. Shane and Jen touched my heart the minute I read them in "Because of You".

"Anything for You" continues their story and how their relationship is growing. They are dealing with problems any couple would have and how those problems may break them apart or make them grow stronger.
