I have never read a book with so much angst in my life. We walked right into this story and knew that this relationship could not work, and yet still I kept reading. I guess it was in an effort to figure out how the relationship was going to fail, which cannot be a good thing at all. More than anything I have to say that this book took me for such a ride, but though there is a cliffhanger I'm not sure I'm actually looking forward to the next book. I really don't see a way for these characters to get an HEA, and that's the part that I can't make better in my head if you know what I mean. I just want them to be together, be in the Marines, and be happy, yet I know that is not going to happen.
