I thought I could do this. I thought I could leave the war behind. 


I was wrong. I can’t do this. I can’t go to class and pretend like everything is normal. That I’m normal. I’m not. I’ve lost everything that matters to me. But I made a promise. 


And if I’m going to keep that promise, I have to focus. I have to pretend that I belong on this southern campus that drips with old money. 


And I have to pass stats. That’s where Beth comes in. 


I’m terrified she’ll see through me. That the careful lies

and easy smile won’t be enough to convince her that everything is fine. 


That she’ll see how broken I really am.  


But there’s something about her that draws me closer. A

sadness in her eyes that am powerless to resist. 


I should walk away. Protect her from the broken, darkness in

me. 


Before we both fall into something neither of us can control 



Stay focused. Get a job. Save her father’s life.  

Beth Lamont knows far too much about the harsh realities of life her gilded classmates have only read about in class. She’ll do whatever it takes to take care of her father, even if that means tutoring a guy like Noah - a guy who represents everything she hates about the war, soldiers and what the Army has done to her family.  

Noah Warren doesn’t know how to be a student. All he knows is war. But he’s going to college now to fulfill a promise and he doesn’t break his promises. Except he doesn’t count on his tutor being drop dead gorgeous and distracting as hell. One look at Beth threatens to unravel the careful lies Noah has constructed around him. 

A simple arrangement turns into something neither of them can deny. And a war that neither of them can forget could destroy them both. 

"Touchingly sincere...Trent and Laura are both rendered as wounded, lovable people, and readers will cheer for each stumbling, shy step toward the couple's reunion. Scott's prose is witty and sharp, and her delightful cast of characters keeps this delectable page-turner vibrant throughout."

--Publishers Weekly (starred review)


He left her for the war…


Ever since the day Army captain Trent Davila lost his life,  he’s been fighting the demons that haunt him from that terrible day. Time and again, he’s left his wife and their two children behind as he’s volunteered to put himself in harm’s way until his wife had enough. 


She’s lost her faith in him...


Laura Davila commits the ultimate sin for an Army wife - sending her husband divorce papers while he’s deployed. She can’t take the pain of knowing he’s betrayed her by volunteering for multiple deployments instead of spending much needed time with her and their two small children. 


He needs her now more than ever…


Sent home facing a court martial on trumped up charges, Trent needs her to stand by him one last time. Being close to him reignites the spark in their troubled marriage that had almost been extinguished. 


As the fight for his career and reputation threatens to destroy them both, their marriage will be tested like never before.
