Anything for You is a fitting title for this Jessica Scott novella about an Army doctor discovering how much she’s willing to sacrifice for her fiancee, a Sergeant recovering from a road-side bombing in Iraq.
Jen and Shane are engaged and very much in love, but their ending is not a guaranteed story-book one. They both bear scars, hers from breast cancer, his from being blown up, and the fear of the other facing the same battles again becomes almost too much to bear.
Anything for You is deeply personal, sweet, and filled with love and compromise. It’s a short read with a lot of heart, and I highly recommend it for fans of Jessica Scott and military romance. Enjoy these favorite lines of mine (no page numbers since I grabbed these quotes from a pre-published version, given to me by Jessica in exchange for an honest review) and pick up your copy today:
Shane was reasonably certain Carponti tried to pinch Nicole’s ass with his prosthetic.
That simple act of loving her, loving all of her, missing parts and all, had taken her to a place she’d never thought she’d find.
“It only hurt because he didn’t talk to you about it.”
“No. It’s more than that.” She let the ice cream melt on her tongue. “It’s like me getting sick again is always in the room.”
Laura looked at her for a long moment. “Maybe it’s always going to be,” she said softly.
Tears filled Jen’s eyes once more. “I don’t want to be a cancer patient anymore,” she whispered. “I just want to move on with my life.”
