He came home a hero and lost the only woman he’s ever loved... 

John
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?

Julianne
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.

One Year Home is about Navy Captain John West and coming home after 5 years to find out that everything has changed in his absence. But the biggest one is the fact that the girl he left behind 5 years ago, without telling her anything, had fallen in love with someone else and has got married, but that’s not all that changed John's life. He has lost part of his leg, and he was outed as a SEAL by the terrorist he was fighting against, and now he is being made into the poster child for the navy. 

That is when Ava's new sister in law comes in, as it's her job to deal with the media, but he wasn't sure if he would be able to deal with Julianne Tilden in his life, but that was before he met her, and since meeting her things have changed. 

I honestly wasn't sure if I would like this book, but I have read many other Marie Force books before, so I knew whatever happened in the story, I knew it would be well written. But what I wasn't expecting was to really enjoy the characters and their messed-up world, though I will admit I did struggle with Eric a little. Overall I found it a very enjoyable read.

I give One Year Home 4 stars
