Book Club: Something Worth Fighting For

I originally read this book because I went to school with Ashley and I wanted to support her. With that said my knowing her has no affect on my reactions to this book.
Something Worth Fighting For

The Amazon synopsis says:
After a rough past Ellie Grant now leads an easy life. Between school, work, and beach days with her loud mouth best friend Darcy, she keeps things simple. She never knew there was something missing until she found it. 

When Marine Corps Sergeant Atlas Ryker walked into the diner that morning her world stopped and started spinning in the opposite direction. 

Falling in love is easy. 
Deployment is hard. 
Distance will mean nothing when someone means so much. 

My feelings:
I am so glad that I read this book. I was not even half way finished with it and I had already bawled and giggled many times. I was recommending this book before I finished it. 

Growing up in a family with 2 grandpas, an uncle, step-dad, brother and many friends in different branches of the military I knew this girls pain. I lived on a marine base, I saw women whose men were off shore, I saw their pain. Reading this book it was all brought back.  As soon as I finished I called to see if my baby brother was still wanting to enlist. 

I felt like I knew the people in this book, way she make you fall in love with the characters is amazing. It was like they were my friends or family and I was reading their diary. I was fully engulfed in this book, I could not put it down. 

My Rating:
♥♥♥♥1/2 out of 5

I would have given it a full 5 but I lost sleep reading this book and that is my way of getting back at it lol. Seriously though it is an amazing book and I HIGHLY recommend it to you even if you are not a big love story fan it is fantastic! 


P.S. I am reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods now and will review it next. If you have a book recommendation let me know!!
