(Navy Love Series Book 3)
How much hurt can one love go through?
An ill mother, a devastating secret and depression. These are now daily battles Joanna Fuentes deals with.
She sat on the sidelines and watched her friends find love, even the ones who weren’t searching for it. J.C. was meant to be a distraction from her mother’s illness, something for fun to pass the time. She never expected him to be her happily ever after.
Jared Collins enjoyed the single life. Yes, he’d always had the hots for a fellow sailor and friend, Jo, but he never thought he’d act on those physical feelings. And he damn sure didn’t think she’d be a game changer when he finally gave into those feelings.
What started off as two friends and a couple drunken nights, escalated into something more; Love. But secrets, unspoken feelings and one huge fight has caused a riff in the once unbreakable friendship of J.C. and Jo.
Will J.C. be able to repair the damage not only to their friendship but also their future relationship? Is he able to be the man Jo needs to pull her out of the depths of despair she’s fallen into?
One thing is certain, it will take a resilient kind of love.

OMG!!! THE FEELS!!!! I cried so much! I absolutely floved this story. I am a huge fan of the series and was so excited when this ARC showed up on my Kindle. The characters are incredible. The storyline was gut-wrenching and heartbreaking, yet full of love and hope. There was so much going on in this story, but it flowed effortlessly. I never felt like it was lagging or confusing. It was addictive. J.C. and Jo will forever reside inside my soul. Their story will hook you in, have you crying and needing 30 boxes of Kleenex, and give you a renewed outlook on love. I do not want to spoil anything with this story. My hope is that EVERYONE who reads, will read this book and find the renewed faith in love that I just happen to be so desperately needing at this point in my life. Definitely a TOP READ OF ALL TIME!!!

This is the 3rd installment for this series and I had high hopes for it. I was really looking forward to Jo and J.C's story.
I was not disappointed!!
Their relationship got off to a rocky start and it took 6 months apart and a pep talk from Jo's mother for them to see the light and get their act together.
The characters are delightful and their road to their happy ever after is long and worthwhile. Everything they go through brings them to where they are meant to be.
Because they have travelled a long road their bond is strong and they prove their love has what it takes to stand the test of time. And as always, their self made family of friends are there to support them every step of the way.
I really loved J.C and his devotion to Jo. He really steps up when it counts and shows how much he loves her. When tragedy hits her family he is beside her every step of the way.
JC Santo has once again written a story about everlasting hope and love. She has brought her characters to life in a way that has you feeling like you are reading about friends and family. It's almost like you are reading about real people, even though we all know they are fictional characters!!
Definitely worth getting your one click finger out for this one!!
JC Santo a true southern girl born and raised a in Central Texas. When she met her husband who is in the U.S. Navy they had to relocate to Norfolk, Virginia. That's where she has been for the past 5 years being a wife and stay at home mom to 3 boys. In the rare occurrences she gets free time it's usually spent reading a good book. Three things she will never turn away cupcakes, tattoos and arbor mist! Lol you have to sound like Morgan Freeman!
