Christmas is a time for family and friends. A time to be with those we love and cherish, the ones who make our heart beat. But when the love of your life is half way around the world, how do you let the spirit of the holidays lift you up and bring you cheer?
Kelsey and Riley spent more time apart than together early on in their relationship, but now he's away for a different reason. Riley’s absence while deployed is taking a toll on Kelsey. She finds herself crying more often than not and distancing herself from the people who are there for her the most.
Riley employs the help of some friends to make Kelsey's Christmas without him a special one. A series of notes and gifts remind her of the good times they have shared so far and the ones to come.
Is Kelsey strong enough to handle one of the happiest holidays separated from the man who completes her in every way?
Will Kelsey scavenge for the strength she needs to embrace the role of a military girlfriend or will she crack under the pressure from the distance?
Only she knows how much she can take….
Just like the book before it, SCAVENGE tugged on my heart-strings every which way. Beautiful and heart-warming, this book took me to a place of longing and heartache. The emotion that I felt for these characters that I came to love in SMOLDERING, came back full-force in SCAVENGE. I feel the pain, love, and sadness from Tiffany Aleman’s words. I feel like she put her heart, soul, and experience in this, and I applaud her for being brave enough to share with the rest of the world. Military families will relate to this beautiful love story, and it acts as a reminder to me, a woman who does not have any military ties, how much I appreciate what the men and the women of the military go through to keep us safe. They sometimes have to part with their families during the holidays and it just breaks my heart into a million pieces. SCAVENGE will remind you to take a minute and remember how much you love your family. So take a minute and hug your husband, wife, baby, aunt, uncle, and friend. Tell them you love them, and send a prayer to those people who don’t get to have that luxury on a daily basis.
A perfect romantic, heart-warming read for the holidays. I urge you to start with Book 1, SMOLDERING before you dive into this treat. SMOLDERING was one of my TOP PICKS of 2014 and I know you will just fall in love with Kelsey and Riley’s story.
