Not Another Soldier by Samantha Holt

Not Another Soldier

About the Book:
After five years as a military wife, Sienna is moving on. She’s keen to leave behind the misery of her marriage to Rob but for some reason the past won’t let her go. It doesn’t help that her closest friend, Nick, is also a soldier. Unfortunately Sienna is struggling to deny her attraction to the sexy marine, even knowing there can be no future in it. When the injured soldier admits he wants her just as badly, and has always wanted her, the fight to control her feelings becomes harder. 

And now she’s learning things about her late husband that surprise even her. When the secrets of Rob’s life come to light, Sienna finds herself involved with some very nasty people and Nick is determined to protect her, no matter what. 

As the danger grows to both her heart and her life, Sienna needs to decide if it was the army that was the problem or her late husband. Is Nick worth the heartache of being a military spouse again? And will he be able to protect her from the ring of drug dealers slowly closing in?

I thoroughly enjoyed the story that Holt told in this novel. Being the wife of a retired soldier, I know how it is to be a military wife. I know the struggles of moving from place to place. I know the dread of leaving your friends behind. I also know how hard it is to put yourself out there over and over again. I went many years feeling like I didn't fit in with the other wives, not having any friends. It was hard living so far from family and feeling utterly alone. 

Sienna when through a lot after the death of her husband. She stayed strong as military wives learn early on that they have to be strong. Her best friend stays by her side through it all. They find a new life together that makes them both extremely happy. 

**I did find many mistakes throughout this novel. Lots of words were missing and others were used incorrectly. There were spelling issues and grammar issues but they didn't completely take away from the story.**
