IT'S ALWAYS BEEN YOU by Jessica Scott (March 4, 2014; Forever E-Book; $2.99)She plays by the rules . .
Captain Ben Teague is many things: a tough soldier, a loyal friend, and a bona fide smart-ass. He doesn't have much tolerance for BS, which is why he's mad as hell when a trusted colleague and mentor is brought up on charges that can't possibly be true. He's even more frustrated with by-the-book lawyer Major Olivia Hale. But there's something simmering beneath her icy reserve-and Ben just can't resist turning up the heat . . .. . . and he's determined to break them
Nanee's Review:The only thing riskier than mixing business with pleasure is enjoying it . . . and Olivia can't resist locking horns-and lips-with Ben. He's got more compassion in his little finger than any commander she's ever met, a fact that makes him a better leader than he realizes. But when the case that brought them together awakens demons from Olivia's past, she will have to choose between following orders-or her heart . . .
Wow! Another amazing emotional journey Jessica took me on. These characters are amazing, they felt so real to me. They have hurt and grief they deal with everyday but their hearts and souls won't let them give up, they want to do what's right, they want to make a difference. Olivia and Ben have such compassion for others but weariness as well because of past nightmares and hurts. I loved these two together they are perfect for each other, they lean on each other and are there no matter what for each other. Very sexy together too. Reza made a appearance and talked Ben off the ledge a time or too (love him). Ben is one of the most awe inspiring characters he puts his men a head of himself, he goes to bat for them time and time again along with Top. Top's a amazing character as well, him and Ben working together for the good, for what's right. Great story, very emotional and loving all in one. Cannot wait to read more in this series. 5 stars
