Sergeant First Class Shane Garrison has spent a year recovering from his combat injuries. A year spent in the arms of the woman of his dreams. But loving Jen comes with a price: every time he touches her, he faces the uncertain fear that loving her might mean losing her forever.
Jen is a breast cancer survivor and with Shane, she’s found a man who loves her despite her scars. But her scars may be too much for their love to survive. As their love grows, so does the risk to Jen’s life. And Shane must make the toughest decision any man can make to save the woman he loves.
An emotional visit with a young couple we met in Ms. Scott’s book “Because of You”. This is a short visit with Shane and Jen that have struggled as they both deal with past issues and continued current problems. They are still reeling from Jen’s breast cancer battle that is still so vivid and Shane’s injuries from Iraq.
Shane is scared that Jen with have a re-occurrence with cancer and does not want a pregnancy to make things worse if there needs to be a horrible decision made. Shane knows Jen wants kids and knows he needs to talk to her about why he wants to take this drastic step but he is scared of her reaction. However it is taken out of his hands when she finds the papers for his vasectomy. She is angry, both because he has not talked to her about it and also because she wants a family.
As they both talk through the choice, they make the decision together that a family is what you make of it and no matter what they will make a wonderful family of their own.
This is a heartfelt visit with a couple truly in love with each other that need to make some life changing decisions. We also get a glimpse in to Laura and Trent’s continued struggles and see how Vic Carponti is doing with his re-hab. A nice addition to the series.
