One Year Home Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
He came home a hero and lost the only woman he’s ever loved....
I have no idea how to survive without my beloved Ava. She had no choice but to move on with her life during my six-year deployment and has now married Eric. I hate him for taking her from me. I’d prefer to wallow in my depression and heartbreak, but the whole damned world wants a piece of the SEAL Team leader who helped capture the world’s most-wanted terrorist. I need help handling the relentless requests, and when Ava sends her new sister-in-law to manage the media circus for me, I’m prepared to hate her on principle. Her brother took my Ava. What else do I need to know about her?
It takes five seconds to realize Ava’s ex is going to be the most complicated and difficult client I’ve ever had, but the opportunity to represent the most celebrated man in the world could make my career. I’m determined to do the job, even if I dislike John from the moment I meet him. And I like everyone. So much so that my brothers worry about me being exploited by those who would take advantage of my unwavering love for others. But John.... He’s in a class by himself, and his bitterness is a festering wound that I begin to wish I could somehow fix for him. The more time we spend together, the more our mutual disdain morphs into something that feels an awful lot like desire. There’s no way I can want this man, or so I tell myself, and when Eric finds out I’ve developed feelings for the man causing trouble in his new marriage, well....
That’s going to be a hot mess.

Another problem I had was the constant references to CNN and then John asking Rob if he was “one of the good guys”, then later informing us he was a rising star in the Democratic Party. Do my books really have to become political now too? I’m a moderate, so I would have felt the same if it had been Fox News and the Republican Party. Why did any of that become necessary to make this a good story? I will definitely think twice about buying other books from this author if this becomes a thing. Yes, she is entitled to her views and opinions but why can’t a good book, just be a good book without signaling out any political affiliations. This should have been a 5 star read but because of Unnecessary Ava drama and politics it fell short in my opinion.
Note: If you haven’t read Five Years Gone, I recommend that you do that before reading this one.
My Rating: I, of course, loved this book and the characters in it. I was pleasantly surprised to find it to be more lighthearted than I expected. I also really appreciated the few visits back with Eric and Ava. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
Julianne or Jules as she is known to close friends and family doesn't take his crap even though he is cranky as hell and scares her a bit. She is compassionate and has an inherent need to fix things. She sees that John is struggling with bitterness that is swallowing him up. She wants to help him, this broken hero who deserves so much.
Little by little she shines her light into his darkness. She is relentless and compassionate and a fierce protector when necessary. She meets his bitterness head on and replaces it with light.
This is an amazing story that gripped me from the beginning. It's a story that will change you. It is complicated, emotional, amazing, hopeful, and inspiring. Even though the characters are fictional they take on a life all their own and are very realistic. You can feel what the characters are feeling and Ms. Force has the ability to pull you into the story. I didn't want to put it down but when I had to for one reason or another all I could think about was what I had already read and how the rest of the story would unfold. It was an amazing story of second chances and the amazing gift of being about to find love again after losing almost everything.
I have loved everything about this book. The storyline was absolutely phenomenal and the characters just warmed my heart. With the help of Jules, John learned to overcome his obstacles and find the heartfelt happiness that he thought he would never find again and Jules just led with her kindness and compassion. They ultimately created a bond that turned into so much more.
I enjoyed finding out that all the other characters found their happily ever afters too!

And I was utterly captivated throughout this story. Not to mention I adored how John and Jules relationship developed and how they stood together in the face of disapproval from certain members of Jules family. Who are all now Ava's family too, and I loved how Ava and Eric were not forgotten and that just because Ava got her happy ever after, it didn't mean everything she'd been through with John was magically wiped away. And those issues were perfectly blended within this story, and just added another layer to what was a beautifully written and emotional tale. That I would happily recommend to others, as it's one of the best books I've read this year.
One year home follows on from her previous book Five years gone, and picks up with John and the rest of the characters as we take a peek into how they are all coping with their own individual situations. Without giving too much away, this story has lots of ups and downs and many oh no! Moments and lots of opportunities for a good cry which is what I in fact did do.
As usual it is very well written and a story which can be thoroughly enjoyed .
