About me

Hi I'm Janna and I am a book whore! I started this blog after being a part of another for years. While being a big blog may be nice I like to stay true to me having a love for books, that's why I blog. I love books and I want to share that love with my readers of this blog. I love to read, books are my escape and a huge part of my life besides my husband and two children. I am honest and sometimes sassy in my reviews but never mean. Some of my favorite authors include Kristen Ashley, Penelope Douglas, T.M. Frazier, M.N. Forgy, Rachel Van Dyken, Meghan March and Vi Keeland to only name a few!

Throwback Thursday! The Officer Says I Do By Jeanette Murray

This review previously posted on My Secret Romance Book Reviews and I have permission to post on here.

He's a Marine...she grew up on a commune.

He always puts duty first...she's a free spirit with an unshakable belief in Fate.

He loves routine and order...she brings chaos and creativity wherever she goes.

They're going to balance each other perfectly--or drive each other completely, utterly insane...

On a wild pre-deployment celebration in Las Vegas, Captain Timothy O'Shay encounters free-spirited beauty Skye McDermott, and for once lets down his guard. Now his life is about to take off in directions he never could have imagined...

I loved this book. It is funny, sweet, romantic and sexy all in one. I am a military wife. My husband is in the Air Force and I about died laughing at certain parts because I still make some of those new military wife mistakes and some things I do just to annoy my husband for fun. I could not put this book down. I read it in a day because I just wanted to see what was going to happen next.

Tim is your stick up the ass, stuffy military man and Skye is the care free, leave your stuff every where hippie type and their relationship works. They balance each other out and make the other better. You would honestly think that they would want nothing to do with each other, but that is not the case with these two. They are not only attracted to each other big time sexually, they actually work on making their marriage work. While their marriage definitely did not start off in a conventional way, they made it work. Tim realizes that sometimes you need not to be so anal all the time and that is because of Skye. Skye really wants this marriage to work and even tries to change to make Tim happy, but he loves her for her not who she is trying to be.

This does show the sometime unfortunate side of military life. I am not talking about the deployments and last minute changes. I am talking about the snotty stuck up, I think I am too good for you military wives that give the good ones a bad name. I so wanted to slap a bitch when I read about Tim’s superior’s wife and how she acted. I loved when Skye finally said something to her. I wanted to yell out You Go Girl!!

If you believe in fate or soul mates, then you will love this book. If you love military romances, you will love this book. If you love a good romance, you will love this book. Have you gotten the hint yet, go get this book, you will love it! I am wishing it was January so I can get my hands on book 2 right now.
