She believes that love can never last, promises are usually broken, and true happiness is extremely elusive in the long run. He believes most risks are worth taking, the promises he makes can be kept, and love doesn't factor in his relationships any longer. They're both wrong.
Jordan Holloway puts all of her creative talents and energy into forging a life with her three-year-old son Max while she waits for her husband Ethan's return from Afghanistan. As a head chef at the prestigious restaurant Le Reve, she focuses upon the two things she can count upon: Max and food. Neither disappoints. Even so, being the best chef, the perfect mother, and the ideal wife to Ethan exact an unforgiving toll as Jordan struggles to cope with her hero-husband's long absences. Given her tragic past, it's not surprising that Jordan has trouble believing in happily-ever-after and really trusting anyone, even if Ethan fails to see her struggles. What is troubling is that Ethan's best friend and sniper partner, Brock Wainwright, seems to recognize Jordan's tortured soul upon meeting her, instantly sensing her pain. In a surreal moment between them, Jordan extracts an almost impossible promise from Brock--to keep Ethan safe and bring him home to her. But can Brock keep such a promise?
Brock finds himself in unfamiliar, emotional terrain with Jordan Holloway; making promises to a woman he's just met but now can't stop thinking about. Upon his return to Afghanistan with Ethan, he experiences a clear understanding of what it means to covet someone else's life and wife. Still, Brock promised Jordan that he'd take care of Ethan, and he is intent on keeping that promise to her right up to the moment on the battlefield that changes everything for all of them.
PRAISE for WHEN I SEE YOU ★★★★★"Very few writers have this gift of sweeping us the readers from our own life and actually plant us as silent observant in their book; feel the pain, joyfully laugh ; really feel and be part of the story. Taking the time to fill out every detail of the background, of every smallest angle in the story, like as if you are in a three dimension movie, engulfing all your senses...Very few books capture you for weeks after you turned the last page and keep you wondering about the lives of the characters you have just been exposed to. This book did all of that to me." -
"RVK" Rachel Amazon Reviewer
"...I am surprised that this story hasn't received more praise and has not left a dent in the world. When I compare some of the books I've enjoyed to this, I have to shake my head...This is a story that will make you feel anxiety, make you feel sad, make you hope that they find a happily ever after. This is a book that grows hair on your chest and makes you look at your life..." Obsessed Goodreads Review
"This book is not a fast pace 'on the edge of your seat' mystery, not an erotica, no vampires or make believe animals this book. It's simply an emotional roller coaster that I highly recommend to everyone..." JerseyGirl
