Loving Kyle by Kasey Millstead

Title: Loving Kyle
Author: Kasey Millstead
Genre: Military Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2017


The tough times don’t define you.  It’s how you respond to them that does.

Six years ago, my world was turned upside down with the ring of my phone and a gravelly voice on the other end.  For months afterward, I felt like I surely wouldn’t make it through another day.   Then my daughter was born.  A bundle of joy, bright enough to light my dreary days, with a glow that warmed my aching heart.   I’ve lived for her ever since.
As I stand here, staring at the man who looks so much like him, but is still so different, I find myself contemplating living for me, just for a little while…

Honorably discharged from the army after five tours to Afghanistan, I’m back in my home town and working as a Basic Combat Training instructor.
Falling in love with Liv was never part of the plan, but as time goes by and wounds are healed, the wall erected between us slowly starts to crumble.  But Liv isn’t the type to give in easily.  Then I remember I’m an American soldier.
I will never accept defeat.  I will never quit.
It’s time she realized she’s mine.

“Deep down, I know two things for sure.  One, my heart, head and gut all direct me to Kyle.  Two, I’m going to continue ignoring them.”

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

This was a beautiful and poignant read, where happiness and love and overcome the darkness.  Liv had always felt a pull towards Kyle but she was happy and in love with his brother Brant.  Kyle knew that Liv was off limits but you can't help who you fall in love with.  The test of your character is how you deal with those feelings when there are others involved.  Liv and Kyle fought and resisted their feelings for each other.  When tragedy struck and Liv finds herself pregnant and alone, Kyle is the constant presence and strength for Liv and her daughter.  Their love for each other is an enduring one and one that shows that patience is a virtue.

Kyle has seen the worst of life serving his country but Liv is everything that is right with life.  He will not give up on her and will wait for her to reach the same page as he is on.  I loved the fact that they jump into anything quickly after Brant's death but took the time for them both to grieve and for Liv to accept the feelings they have for each other.

This was the perfect read for me encapsulating the feels, the beauty of love, hope and a poignancy that reached deep inside me.
