I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn't know then was that I'd never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone. That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I'm stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister's wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again. The world is riveted by the capture of the terrorist mastermind, brought down by U.S. Special Forces in a daring raid. Now I am trapped between hoping I'll hear from John and fearing what'll become of my new life with Eric if I do.

This book was a bit different than what I expected. \Now that I have, I'm not sure what I think about her writing style. First person is not my favorite, but when done well, I don't even think about it. In this book it was glaringly obvious and full of exposition that felt too conversational, rather than immersive. I often felt like I was with a friend in a coffee shop listening to her tell me about her daily adventures where a response was expected. That just felt weird at times.

As for the story, I liked the idea behind it, the characters, and even the attempt at multi-POVs. There were a couple of tangent sub-plots that felt unnecessary or unfinished, but maybe they will be fleshed out in a related future book. Although I wasn't in love with the book, I was interested in finishing and seeing how the love triangle resolved itself. At this point, I can't be sure if I will continue with the next book.
