For four years, Grace Sullivan wrote to a Marine she never met, and fell in love. But when his deployment ended, so did the letters. Ever since that day, Grace has been coasting, academically and emotionally. The one thing she’s decided? No way is Noah Jackson — or any man — ever going to break her heart again.
Noah has always known exactly what he wants out of life. Success. Stability. Control. That’s why he joined the Marines and that’s why he’s fighting his way — literally — through college. Now that he’s got the rest of his life on track, he has one last conquest: Grace Sullivan. But since he was the one who stopped writing, he knows that winning her back will be his biggest battle yet.
This New Adult romance is based in college and follows two characters who I enjoyed reading about. Grace wrote to a Marine for four years and in that time developed a relationship on paper with Noah. When Noah left the Marines he went off the grid and Grace did not hear from him again until he turns up at her college two years later.
The development of trust into a relationship was lovely to read about. I particularly enjoyed reading the letters that Grace and Noah shared and how they linked to the plot. I liked the relationship that Grace had with her roommates and her struggle to find her way in life.
Overall, this was a good romance book with an enjoyable plot. The characters were likeable and I am interested in continuing this series.
Keep Calm and Read On,
