Justifying Jack – Simone Beaudelaire

Justifying Jack is a standalone novel and can be enjoyed even if you haven’t read other books in the series.

For Army Staff Sergeant Jack Nelson, the military is more than just a career goal; it’s the only life he knows. That is, until a tragic explosion leaves him wounded in body and spirit.

His military service ended, Jack returns to his parents’ home to recuperate. Expecting a time of quiet contemplation, Jack is blindsided by the most inappropriate of attractions… the widow of his lost brother-in-arms. While Marithé’s sweetness soothes Jack’s agony, she’s also suffering from her own grief.

Will the couple be able to find a future together, or will regret, guilt and secrets destroy their troubled romance?
