TITLE: Heartbreak Warfare
AUTHORS: Kate Stewart & Heather M. Orgeron
GENRE: War/Military
PUBLICATION: November 3rd, 2018
Briggs,

Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .

Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

The truth is I’m lost without you.

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,
Scottie

HEARTBREAK WARFARE:
Is co written by Kate Stewart and new to me author Heather m. Orgeron. A full length, military novel. 'Heartbreak Warfare' has been one of my most highly anticipated books that I have been stalking the ass off since Kate Stewart announced this goody on facebook!!

As soon as I jumped into this I was hooked, didn’t want to put it down, couldn’t put it down even if I wanted to, like a sponge I absorbed their words and raced through the chapters, loving everything about this book. Take that plunge and one click this, this went from a 5 star read to easily hitting my favourite shelf of the year.

Twenty-five year old Katy is a soldier to the core, and we’re right beside her as she says a heartfelt goodbye to the two loves she leaves behind, her little boy and her husband of seven years, even though this is the very last thing she wants to do, it’s what she was born to do, American pride flowed through her veins and because she grew up as an army brat it’s in her blood too.

But at least she’s not alone on this mission she’s got her bestie serving right beside her for this twelve month stint. It's their first time being deployed.

Over there she meets twenty- five year old Sergeant Briggs who tests her patients, Mr Flirts alot he's the jokester of the group and the perfect picture of what an American soldier embodies, strong, virile, confident, with a healthy dose of cocky.



Out on a mission things don't go to plan and Briggs and Katy only have each other to lean on, for months it's just these two, he becomes her rock when she needs him the most, together they had to fight to survive. And because of this an undeniable bond was formed between them that was hard to shake. In another lifetime, I know we'd have been perfect for each other.

Arriving back on home soil it's not an easy transition for Katy, she feels disembodied, she's struggling to get back to the person she was before the war. Night terrors, loud noises, crowds, things that she took for granted take a back seat as she tries to pick the pieces of her broken mind back together again. Pills, drinking, nothing numbs it for her. She couldn't open up and talk about what she'd endured. Because to do that would break her even more. Her family and loved ones don't know how to help her. The only thing that soothes her is her boy Noah.

“This is my confession. I went to war loving one man and came back in love with another."

The only one who understands what she's going through is Briggs. When she reaches out to hm it's with him that she finally feels alive again, it's with him that the dead parts of herself start to reawaken.

Who knew all the feels would hurt so much, I snorted when readers before me said ohhhh be prepared, buy tissues you’ll need them. And there I sat naively thinking, you bunch of pussies, sorry, not sorry, then I reach chapter 56 and all the fucking feels come at me full force, zapped to the heart, my head, my mind, my morals all in question, this book destroyed me, my emotions went up and down like a yo-yo, fuck you Kate Stewart for making my eyes all swollen and my nose all blocked. And fuck you too new author to me for making me the non cryer cry like I’ve never cried before!! Nothing and I mean nothing prepared me to feel as much as I felt. This book slayed me!!

But as I reach that last page, all is forgiven because it ended exactly how I hoped it would.
