[Review]: "Anything For You"

Anything For You by Jessica Scott
Publisher: Tormia Creatives (February 1, 2013)
Series: Coming Home, 1.5
Genre: Contemporary Romance

  From the author of Because of You comes an all new Coming Home short story.

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.

My Review:

A quick, but well done, add on to Jen and Shane's HEA, Anything For You will please any fan of the first book. I loved this one, and I was happy to see the two work things out. Scott's humor came through again, especially from Vic (Carponti) while giving Shane a bad times about his vasectomy decisions:

“Jen is going to kill you. You know that, right?” Vic Carponti took a long pull off his ever-present Dr Pepper. “I think she has first dibs on your balls. You don’t have exclusive use over them any more.”

  (And a few pages later...)

“So, back to the more pressing matters, are you going to gift wrap your nuts and put a little bow on them and say, ‘Here baby, for Valentine’s Day, I’ve sacrificed my manhood’?”

Shane shook his head and tried not to laugh. “There’s something the matter with you. You know that, right?”

“Sure. My traumatic brain injury is acting up again.” Carponti turned toward the door as it opened. “Speaking of nuts, here’s my wife. I need to get mine out of her purse.”

Really, I've already said it, but I'll say it again--I'd love to have a novella about Vic and his wife. Some sort of prequel perhaps. Anything. I love Vic and his gruff-ness and humor.

4 STARS! If you haven't picked up Scott's books yet, I highly recommend doing so--you could even start with this novella, you won't be lost, but I would say reading Because of You first will make your reading that much more enjoyable. For funny, yet very emotional, military romances, pick up these books today!
