Synopsis from Goodreads
HE CAME HOMEMy Thoughts...
The year is 2003 and Captain Lucas Graham is at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, about to be deployed to Iraq. A few weeks ago, he broke his engagement with Jillian Barrett, leaving her stunned and heartbroken.
Knowing he can’t leave for war without putting his affairs in order, Luke obtains a four day pass with only one goal in mind: explain his life story to his former fiancée.
The problem: Jill is now engaged to another man.
But Luke isn’t giving up. He only has four days to gain an audience with Jill, even if he has to resort to drastic measures to do so.
And he will . . .
This is another of Taylor's books that I had for a little bit before I had a chance to pick it up and dedicate some time to it. The thing I love about these books is that I know I can carve out a few hours and at the end of it I will have finished a really good book. Another thing is that I know I will cry! I don't even remember the last book of hers that I read that didn't make me cry.
This book takes us back to 2003 into the lives of Lucas and Jill. They were about to get married when Lucas was deployed to Iraq. Instead of getting married quickly before he shipped out he broke up with Jill. One month later he takes a 4 day leave and shows up and literally kidnaps Jill two days before what would have been their wedding day. All he wants is the chance to explain why he broke up with her.
Jill appears to have moved on since she's now engaged to another man. This is not the case at all, but I can't go into any more detail without spoiling anything. In Lucas' explanation he goes back to when he and Troy were kids and things that happened that shaped them into the men that they are today.
Some of the details are a little out there, but that didn't make me like the story any less. It was a very emotional read for sure. I always enjoy Taylor's stories, they are always heartfelt and romantic without being over the top. If you like good, clean romance then you really need to pick up ALL of Taylor's books!
