Back to You by Jessica ScottHe's in for the fight of his life . . .
Army captain Trent Davila loved his wife, Laura, and their two beautiful children. But when he almost lost his life in combat, something inside him died. He couldn't explain the emptiness he felt or bridge the growing distance between him and his family—so he deployed again. And again. And again . . . until his marriage reached its breaking point. Now, with everything on the line, Trent has one last chance to prove to his wife that he can be the man she needs . . . if she'll have him
. . . to win back his only love.
Laura is blindsided when Trent returns home. Time and again, he chose his men over his family, and she's just beginning to put the pieces of her shattered heart back together. But when Trent faces a court martial on false charges, only Laura can save him. What begins as an act of kindness to protect his career inflames a desire she thought long buried—and a love that won't be denied. But can she trust that this time he's back to stay?

MY REVIEW:
     What do you do when you love someone so much and they shut you out?  Not just anyone but the man you’ve known since 9th grade when you fell in love with him?  You both promised to… “Love, honor, and cherish through the good times and the bad, sickness and health until do you part.”
     Well, for Laura Davila she had, had enough when the rumors of her husband being unfaithful, being a liar about him volunteering to go back into the hot spots of war, and his pending court-martial.  All of which he not once called to talk to her about.  The thing about it she could almost have lived with the stories of another woman better than the fact that it was so bad at home with her and the kids that he rather put himself in the kill zone.  Especially, after he had already almost died once.
     Trent Davila was rear ended when he had found out with the divorce papers arriving that his marriage was over.  He knew at that moment that everything he tried to save Laura and the children from, the anxiety, the flashbacks, nightmares, and guilty depression were not.  She was/is his center, his life, his love, his home, his best friend and family.
How could she ever doubt that?  He had to fix this.  Yet, he was duty bound to keep a lid on the court martial, he was relieved of duty but sent to California base not Texas where Laura and the kids were.  Making the gap between them that much bigger.
     When he finally gets shipped back home though it makes him all the more ready to be there.  After all that time missing his family all the more.  By having all that time in the California to think of them and not the war.  He meets with his friend and lawyer, Patrick MacLean.  Patrick suggest beyond strongly that he ask Laura to take him back at least until after the Article 32 hearing where he will more than likely get the charges all dropped.  He needs him to look like the happy family man.  He says no he won’t ask such a thing of Laura since he wants to win her back on his own merits.
     Patrick goes behind his back to Laura who has to think about it.  This is where it gets extremely interesting.  The friends they have are a hoot and have faith no matter what and don’t sugar coat.  They are up front and personal.  These characters make the series and the subject matter so much more enjoyable.  Trent and Laura’s two kids especially Ethan were out of control but both just too cute.
     You will find yourself not wanting real life to get in the way so you could read.    I enjoyed this one even more than ALL FOR YOU the first book of hers I read.  Only because that one didn’t tie up enough of the story line enough.  I give this book 5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.
