ANYTHING FOR YOU, new from author Jessica Scott

About the book:
Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison has spent a year recovering from his combat injuries. A year spent in the arms of the woman of his dreams. But loving Jen comes with a price: every time he touches her, he faces the uncertain fear that loving her might mean losing her forever.
Jen is a breast cancer survivor and with Shane, she’s found a man who loves her despite her scars. But her scars may be too much for their love to survive.
As their love grows, so does the risk to Jen’s life. And Shane must make the toughest decision any man can make to save the woman he loves.

Author Jessica Scott has followed up her romance, BECAUSE OF YOU with a novella that continues the story of Shane Garrison and Jen St. James. BECAUSE OF YOU is a wonderfully romantic book and you really should (in my opinion) read it before reading ANYTHING FOR YOU.

Shane and Jen fall in love,  albeit reluctantly, and while their road to romance may have been a little bumpy, downright rocky at times, they persevered and love conquered all.

Or so they thought. This is where ANYTHING FOR YOU comes into play. Now that Shane and Jen have planned for a future together, he wants to know that their future is as solid as possible. Jen's recent battle with an aggressive form of breast cancer resulted in the removal of a breast. Her only having one breast doesn't bother Shane in the least. The idea that this particular form of cancer has a great possibility of returning during pregnancy scares him to death, especially because he knows that Jen wants a family once they're married.

Shane doesn't trust conventional methods of contraception and wants to take steps to be certain that Jen won't get pregnant. Because she's been though so much already, he has decided to have the procedure done himself. He worries about what Jen's reaction will be. Will she agree with him and be supportive? Will she be angry and think his fears are ridiculous and he's too weak to risk the ups and downs of marriage?

Jessica Scott is a wonderful storyteller and if you haven't read her work, you should - and soon!  She's military herself, ladies, and she knows what she's writing about. Her characters aren't larger than life or perfect by any means. They're just like our family, friends and neighbors and their flaws make them that much more realistic and lovable. Secondary characters are a priceless addition to the stories she tells and aren't there simply as filler.

I truly hope you'll check out her website and her books!

I will give one reader here a Kindle or Nook copy of BECAUSE OF YOU to get you started. Just leave a comment saying you're interested and you'll be in the draw. I'll choose a winner on Saturday - be sure to check back because as you know, I sometimes forget to draw for a day or two!  (If you want to leave your email addy with your comments, I'll email you if you're the winner and you won't need to check back.)

I have read Because of You and it was really a great book.

Lisa Freeman said...

I've never heard of her. Thanks for the recommendation. What publisher is she with?

Cheryl said...

The story sounds heart-wrenching but good. Count me in on the draw, please.

Joyce M. said...

It sounds interesting. I don't think I have read her. Count me in.

Hope you are feeling better.

I don't have an e-reader so don't include my name in the draw. I have heard a lot of good things about her first book.

How was the Bob Seger concert? I know someone that went to his concert in Michigan. Cheryl also is a huge fan of his.

Hey ladies, thanks for your patience!

Lisa, these are Loveswept books. I've enjoyed them all very much.

Laurie, Bob Seger was awesome!! My BFF and I have seen him about eight times, the first time when we were 17 (a long time ago!). We saw him twice on the 2011 tour and we're hoping he'll be adding more stops and will come to Columbus again before this tour is over b/c he's indicated that this will likely be the last one. :(

Because there are just a handful who commented, I'll buy each of you a book! Email me at ljodamron@gmail.com and let me know which Jessica Scott book you'd like.

Glad you had a fantastic time with your best friend at the concert! I'm sorry I don't have an e-reader.
