Dear Soldier, With Love...
A mysterious love letter, no name and no return address shows up in a soldier’s hands looking for her lost Beloved Soldier, unable to find him to reaches out to a soldier who perhaps no longer feels the reach of his woman hoping to touch someone that will in turn bring back her beloved.
Army Specialist Christian Brice was the first to receive the letter coming only a month after his fiancé had sent him a Dear John, so moved and touched he writes her back, but unable to send it directly he shares both the letter and his correspondence with others like him and thus begins the journey of a woman’s heartfelt words across a war torn area to deliver a sweet kiss to those who need to feel it.
Word spreads of the Beloved Woman and so does the number of correspondences, some of passion and appreciation, others sharing a far more open and sensual fantasy with her, each one added to the bundle that carries her from one soldier to the next, until she lands in the hands of Airforce Senior Airman Miles Conley who comes across the man it was intended for.
This was a very hard story to read. Not because it was bad, but because it was a very emotional tale. I have a hard time with anything war related. I'm a mushy emotional person, so I get choked up pretty easy. This was for sure one of those times. It's heart wrenching to know that so many people are affected by things just like what we hear in this story. I did feel like I was waiting for it to settle on one person, which it did a little bit at the end, but you don't really get to know the characters as well as you do with a story focused on very specific people. I loved the concept though, it was an original thought, and I liked that it was something out of the norm.

Dear Soldier, With Love: A Lost Soldier Named Grey
This is the second one in the series. I have to say I liked this one a lot better than the first one. I really enjoyed the interaction between Grey and Nathan. It was a really emotional tale about two soldiers who are both having a hard time getting past the horrors they have seen and are still dealing with and how they heal each other. I can't imagine how hard it would be to be in either of their positions. This one totally made me cry as I watched (read, same thing!) Grey and Nathan work on getting past both physical and emotional pain. Good job!
