Until he's not. Left with nothing, Jamie joins the army hoping it will give her purpose. The last thing she expects is the best friend from her past to reappear in the dusty plains of a war-torn country. No longer the boy she once knew, Bear is now a man: big, bearded, and SASone of the army's elite. Soon, Jamie finds herself not only fighting against her enemies but also her feelings for a man who left her once before. Can she risk losing him all over again?
